Hide Glue Pucks

10-16-2019 09:09 PM by Rich | 12 comments »

Perhaps I should call them high-protein muffins. Anyway, I’m sure the hide glue experts will get a real chuckle out of this one, but I have struggled with keeping my glue at the right depth in the pot. I leave the brush in the pot so it stays soft, and I don’t like to fill it up and have the brush sink down and get glue up the handle. About an inch or so deep is ideal. Keeping it to the right consistency by adding hot water as the glue thickens due to evaporation is easy. T...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #98: Best Edge Banding Around!

12-16-2018 08:01 PM by retired_guru | 4 comments »

Before heading out to the Big Box Store, I checked to see if they had the 3/4” wide red oak edge banding I needed to finish the daughter’s two dog bowl holders. Look what I found: Yep. You read the description right: 3/4” thick, 6” wide, 25’ long. Heh. Here we wrap our oak planks into rolls. ;)

Feeble Attempts at Humor #10: Pile? Mess? Collection? of Clamps?

06-23-2018 04:29 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Time to lighten the mood a bit. I think the best collective noun to describe clamps would be ‘insufficiency’ ‘I have to add to my insufficiency of clamps.’ ‘I’m adding to my insufficiency of clamps.’

Feeble Attempts at Humor #5: John Heisz Signs on for Some Torture

03-29-2016 07:17 PM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

View on YouTube A pared down portion of a recent video by John Heisz. Someone in the comments of his video suggested putting Yackety Sax behind the video. One section made me laugh harder than I have in a while, so I vowed to make what you see here to share. Apologies to John Heisz.

Feeble Attempts at Humor #4: Mi faris 'ion' el ligno!

01-11-2016 06:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Why is this in any way funny? Simply because in the subject line, the word ‘ion’ means ‘something’ in Esperanto. The subject line in English would read ‘I made ‘something’ out of wood!’ Cue the laugh track [link] This is my first ‘project’ made with my scroll saw.

Feeble Attempts at Humor #2: Cross Language Pun

07-24-2015 09:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

Above you see a wooden sculpture of a tornado It is a wood tornado. The word for ‘wood’ in Esperanto is ligno Ligno-tornado means wood turning, (like on a lathe) in Esperanto. Ligno-tornado also means ‘wood tornado’, (like the funnel storm) in Esperanto. (context would differentiate the meanings.)...Cue laugh track. N.B. Not responsible for health issues due to sustained laughter from this post. What’s Esperanto? [link]

It Starts With a Workbench #5: Get this thing off the ground... with a vengeance

07-04-2015 10:20 PM by DocTux | 1 comment »

Started off working on my saw horses. I definitely appreciated the advice to build a saw bench, but it was going to be significantly more involved than the extremely basic set of stacking saw horses I did build. Plus it can’t stack, which was a huge detractor. I will likely build one later on, but probably not until I have a functional bench in place. This was the first time I had ever used a handsaw and attempted to do more than a rough cut to fit oversized studs in the back of my truck. It ...
