Chair Repair with Epoxy Glue & Vector Clamping

05-28-2019 01:50 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I recently repaired these unique chairs that don’t have stretchers. The construction demands solid joints and it took Epoxy glue and vector clamping to put these back together in working order. Here’s the video to watch the process: https://youtu.be/En98y7NFwu0

Building a Fishing Kayak Cooler #7: Fiberglassing a Panel and Taping the Outside Seams

05-03-2019 01:59 AM by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Fiberglassing a Panel Fiberglassing an individual panel is pretty simple. Drape an oversize piece of cloth over the panel. Pour epoxy on it. Spread the epoxy with a scraper to fill the weave, but leave no puddles. The weave of the cloth will remain prominent after the first coat. Once the epoxy reaches green cure, trim edges with a razor and apply another fill coat of epoxy. It may take three coats total if you’re going for a glass smooth finish. The inside...

Alaska Cabin #3: The Live Edge Counter

02-06-2019 02:51 AM by Matt Snyder | 0 comments »

When I moved in to the small 13’ x 15’ dry cabin on the fire base in McGrath, AK it was nicer than most of the primitive cabins on base. Some of the walls had rough cut white spruce panels and there was a little hand made furniture from previous crafty resident firefighters. In the kitchen area the counter was a white painted piece of plywood braced to the wall with a simple cabinet underneath. I figured I could do better and thus began my first major woodworking project that started m...

Stickley 802 Hall Table #3: Panels

01-07-2019 05:26 PM by TigerTed | 0 comments »

Chose the best 5/4 stock for the top. 18” wide. Left over 8/4 was resawed (previous post) and used to make side panels and bottom shelf. These were glued up. Of course, there was a ton of hand planing. Flatten show side. Marking gauge to max dimension that will clean up the opposite face and plane. The top was cut to length with a miter saw guided by a Veritas magnetic guide. I make sure the tool is square using a 12” square. I did find some cracks in my...

Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 3 - End

06-07-2017 11:54 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 2 comments »

Hello everyone !This is the third and last part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench (a Moxon vise benchtop bench). Today I share with you the making of the handles and the finishing. To make the handles I considered to embed the nuts in a floral shape, using the leftover wood of the legs, (guayubirá “Patagonula americana”).It is evident that at this stage of the work, we can make a perfect flower, symmetrical, neat, but above all cold.However, to bring something more natura...

Epoxy Lids and Why I Hate Them

05-06-2017 06:01 PM by MaxSupernova | 9 comments »

So, I like to rant about user experience and design issues, and this is something that really bugs me. Yes, it’s minor, and it’s easily solved with a sharpie, but it shouldn’t have to be! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQySdXv49CM

Sharpening Station | Sink Bridge

02-20-2017 10:04 PM by heldercruz100 | 0 comments »

View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones. In the end I gave it a nice coat of epoxy to make it waterproof. Now I have a tool that makes my life easier and that its gonna last. Hope you like this video. And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...

Walnut, live-edge, end-table build

02-02-2017 03:28 AM by DavidOveracre | 0 comments »

So I was given what was basically an old chunk of walnut firewood by a friend, as well as some random scrap pieces of milled walnut (among other useful things as well). I decided one day to roughly slab the big chunk when I was already doing the same with a cedar log for another project. It looked amazing when I opened it up, so I continued with the process. I started by using my router sled on one side of both slabs (2 pieces is about all the big chunk yielded). Then sent both thru the plane...

Claro Walnut Box #3: Ready to Choose Finish

12-08-2016 07:51 PM by HorizontalMike | 16 comments »

Ready to choose finish Here are my options in stock: Wipe-on Varnish (MW Tung Oil Finish) Epoxy—West Systems w/#207 Clear Hardener Shellac (Clear) BLO FWIW, I hate “flash” photography. It really brings out flaws and false contrasts, IMO. To the eye, my corner lid fix does not have that much contrast. I wet with denatured alcohol to clean of dust and to be able to see what the box looks like with a finish. Things look better than these im...
