Have you heard of "vector clamping"?

05-11-2019 11:02 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 9 comments »

Vector Clamping is a new term I recently learned. When I clamp odd shapes, such as a pedestal table leg, there isn’t any natural way to clamp the parts. I make cauls using softwood to create a clamping surface so I get force applied in the right direction. I explain this and show 2 examples in this video to share how this works. https://youtu.be/izMaQp5myf8

Tip: The Shim Fix for the Small Gaps in a Mitered Corner

03-25-2018 01:14 AM by DeLayne Peck | 2 comments »

If anything sets me off in the shop, it is miscutting or bumbling a miter. Too often I don’t have the material or patience to remake a part. Or, an effort to grain match just cracked up. There are a lot of solutions: Glue and sawdust, burnishing with a screwdriver, or try wood putty. I’m certain shimming a gap is not new. But, it works. Cut a thin strip. Hand sand it to thickness. Dot some glue on it and tap it in place. Carefully clean up any squeeze-out. When the ...

Cost Saving Tips: Glue Mats and Machine Lighting

03-18-2018 04:41 PM by DeLayne Peck | 3 comments »

Blue silicone glue mats recently appeared in woodworking catalogs. $29.95, gulp, for a 15” x 30” mat. I hate slopped, dried glue, but really? I recently “borrowed” a BBQ non-stick grill mat from the kitchen and intentionally slopped and dripped glue on it. Dried glue popped and wiped off with little effort. Set of 5, 16” x 13”, $5 bucks! Here is the link! Posted by other brothers, but it bears repeating: Magnetic, LED sewing machine lights are in...

Wood Glue Tests and Information #1: EIGHT Wood Glues TESTED with Unexpected Results

01-11-2018 08:41 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

View on YouTube I started wondering about wood glue recently and the more I thought about it, the more I thought that I should do my own set of tests. I am interested in Working Time, how well different glues will work with veneer, and how well they will work with bent laminations. I did not test for strength because Fine Woodworking did a great article on glue strength and their results were that most all glues are plenty strong enough. I also limited this to only PVA glues. I still ...

<div>Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code</div> I drove from Minneapolis to Santa Rosa, CA to take a class with David Marks and it was great! I also got a sneak peak at a brand new Twin Screw Vise design by Andy Klein. I think this one will actually make it to market, and hopefully it will be soon! Other highlights from my 5000 mile road trip. Charlie

Epoxy Lids and Why I Hate Them

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

Fixing Warp in Plywood

03-26-2017 04:36 PM by ConrailDon | 2 comments »

Hi Everyone, this is my first post. I hope to tap a good knowledge base here.I am trying to build some table leafs (hope i used the correct word). They need to be 1.075 thick. My thought was to glue up some 3/4 birch Ply with some 1/4”. I struggled to find some really flat 3/4” stock, so I glued up the first panel on my workbench. My workbench is 3/4” particle board and very flat. Anyway the 3/4” stock had about a 1/16” bow in a 4 foot length. I glued this up...
