Ultraviolet resin curing light made from finger nail dryers

01-13-2020 04:06 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 14 comments »

Not worthy of the project area but I thought some might be interested. I make fishing lures and currently epoxy coat them when I’m done. There is a coating called alumi-UV that you coat a lure with then cure it for about 30 minutes under UV light that I’ve wanted to try. There is another brand called Solarez. It’s a lot like the UV light wands they use in dentists offices when they patch a tooth. I suppose it could be used on other things like maybe turned items like pens...

Wood Finishing #1: Varnish vs Polyurethane

09-20-2019 03:48 PM by John Smith | 3 comments »

Varnish vs. Polyurethane Before we dig into the details, let’s talk about why we need different finishes for outdoor applications. Any wood that is used outside is going to be exposed to a wide range of climate conditions, as well as a good dose of damaging UV rays. These elements serve to break down the finish over time. Furthermore, changes in humidity cause the wood to expand and contract, and a standard indoor finish (such as polyurethane) would simply crack and deteriorate under these...

Mini-Roubo from Oz #3: My first workbench build: Leg Vise - The beginnings

07-28-2019 10:31 PM by siggykc | 0 comments »

Gday all! So, whilst I was constructing the base of the bench, in parallel i had been keeping an eye out for folks selling interesting timber that I could incorporate into the bench.As i live in essentially a flat sized house, I dont have a huge stockpile of timber and just acquire it as I go.I came across a bloke who had an old hard maple bowling alley that he had ripped up. After close inspection, i figured it wasn’t the ideal thing to incorporate into the bench, but he had a shipp...

Chair Repair with Epoxy Glue & Vector Clamping

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
