Laundry hamper #10: First door: Gluing it up

09-08-2021 04:27 PM by Dave Polaschek | 9 comments »

Between the Monday holiday and my sweetie having some friends of hers over yesterday, I haven’t had a lot of shop time the past few days. But I’ve sorta completed the first door. I started by gluing together opposite corners of the frame, making sure they were square and level. The wasn’t too bad, but that was all I got done on Sunday evening. Monday, I did the big glue-up of the door. The lattice is “loose” in the frame (not glued in, anyhow), but that still left a lot of parts to get ...

Painted poplar picture frame #2: Mitered corners and glue up

06-23-2021 04:52 PM by Dave Polaschek | 0 comments »

Next up was cutting the stick into lengths for the frame, mitering the corners, and gluing it up. First cutting to length. I cut the first 45 using a cheap miter box. Then I got the end more exact using a shooting board and shooting board plane. Then I measured along the rabbet 9 inches and drew a 45 to mark where the next cut had to be. Lather, rinse, repeat until I had four sides of a frame. Glue them and clamp them up until tomorrow.

Forge table #7: Undercarriage and attaching the legs

01-09-2021 05:19 PM by Dave Polaschek | 14 comments »

I did some work to build the undercarriage. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted the stretchers to cross over or meet in a hub, but when I test fit things, it became clear I couldn’t have them cross without bending them. So I turned a hub (from a scrap of salt cedar) for the four stretchers to meet in and bored a couple holes through it. Unfortunately, I didn’t think that the holes wouldn’t meet at right angles, but since the table-top is a rectangle, they don’t. Oh well. As Bandit sa...

Hide Glue, PVA, or Epoxy? See where the pros use these and why

08-16-2020 11:32 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 3 comments »

I talk with another business owner as we compare the glues we use in our workshops. We break some boards to test the strength of the glue on edge-grain laminations to demonstrate good and bad joints. This is a new style of video format so I’d love to hear what you think about it. Video Link—> https://youtu.be/qK0IR8WT_jE

What type of glue to you use?

10-31-2019 08:28 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 4 comments »

I use 6 different types of glue in my workshop. Not one glue works for every purpose. Check out my latest video about strengths and weaknesses of wood glues… and see my Halloween sign repair using waterproof glue. Hope you have a safe Halloween! Scott https://youtu.be/aRYNAlbBDUg #woodglue

Fixing loose chair joints

10-12-2019 11:07 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

I thought I’d share some knowledge on how to repair chairs properly. I’ve seen so many failed repairs, that I hope this helps people learn do fix chairs the right way. I’ve seen hot glue, screws, nails, and glue applied to the lip of joints – none of these work. I dedicated 20 minutes to show how to do this the right way. I include tips on glue, cleaning up joinery, clamping, and disassembly. I hope you find this educational. Scott https://youtu.be/XSVGLTpCMHo...

Proper way to glue furniture parts

09-28-2019 01:12 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 3 comments »

I’ve seen a lot of failed furniture joints in my furniture repair shop. I’m surprised how many people don’t know the fundamentals of how to properly glue up parts. I’ve seen finish in joints. I’ve seen joints with barely any glue in them. I’ve seen dowel joints with just glue at the bottom of the mortise. I put this video together to show how to properly glue up furniture joints. Let me know what you think. https://youtu.be/hS8NV_S9dw0

It’s All About Donating! #3: Rustic Intarsia

06-12-2019 05:39 AM by justoneofme | 14 comments »

How many times, pulling pieces apart and fitting them back in place again, does it take before an Intarsia art piece is ready to hang on the wall? A video of my work in progress viewed fast forward would confirm such repetition … a gazillion times … but who’s counting?! At least these chosen photos shouldn’t throw you into that world of boredom!! But repetition is worth mentioning because someone out there in LumberJock Land might be contemplating this particular style of Int...
