Standup Paddleboard Paddles #1: What the heck is a Standup Paddleboard?

08-06-2007 10:32 PM by Bob Babcock | 14 comments »

My older brother loves water sports. Lately he has taken up SUP (standup paddleboarding) because it is easier on old geezers like himself. I say that with the greatest respect….I hope I can be half as active as he is when I’m 60+. It is basically a very large surf board with a paddle and (you gueesed it) you stand up the whole time. It’s great exercise, easier to catch waves and if no waves…just fun to paddle. If you are interested my brother has a great blog for begin...

Laminating Wood #1: Laminating Wood, Part 1 - laminating curved parts in wood

03-30-2014 07:22 PM by GnarlyErik | 14 comments »

Laminating Wood The word ‘laminate’ comes from the Latin ‘lamina’ meaning ‘thin slice, plate, leaf or layer’ which is pretty close to our modern meaning. Funny how that often works, eh? During my career I have learned a fair amount about laminating wood. There are surely others out there who know far more about specific sorts of laminating than me and I do not pretend to know it all, but am happy to share what I have learned. There are several reasons for laminating or glueing separa...

Bowling Alley Workbench #14: Chop Chop Laddie. (the leg vise)

08-12-2009 03:44 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

This project is a fine example of the 80/20 concept. it takes 20% of the project time to complete 80% of it, and then, 80% of the project time to finish the last 20% of the project. As it gets to the details, things take longer to think through, plan out, cut…mill…glue… and finesse. this time it’s the leg vise Chop, and although not completely finished (still need to trim, round off, and apply BLO), it’s construction is done. I was originally planning to us...

Secrets of the String Box Revealed #2: Laminate The Strings

08-26-2010 07:42 AM by newTim | 6 comments »

I’ve prepped over thirty pictures so far so I tried to break them up into logical groups. The first part is to laminate the strings. For this box I’m using the re-saw technique and start with a thick piece of wenge (8/4) milled flat and square. I re-sawed some strips of maple and ran them through the drum sander for thickness and to remove any larger saw marks. I made a single rip cut on the wenge with a gentle random curve on the bandsaw and glued a thin strip of maple in bet...

The Impossible Staircase

06-27-2010 10:19 PM by Div | 48 comments »

Sometime last year I was approached by a client who wanted a very unusual staircase for a new house he was having built. It had to consist of a single beam with the treads straddling the beam. To make matters interesting, the beam had to have the shape of a compound bow when seen in plan view. To make matters even more interesting the beam also had to have concave sides when seen in section, wide at the top, narrow at the bottom.No structural plans were available and the architect had only pr...

Secrets of the String Box Revealed #3: Resaw & Bookmatch

08-27-2010 06:09 AM by newTim | 7 comments »

Last blog was too long on words. Pictures tell the whole story. Mark the wood with triangles to keep them aligned, resaw a little over the thickness you desire, run each through the planer at the same thickness and bookmatch the parts. Note: if you are using real thick wood like 8/4, you can slice four pieces and have enough material for two boxes.

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #3: Preparing Lamination Strips

02-12-2010 07:44 AM by sras | 9 comments »

There are three curved parts in each stool. These are formed by gluing up thin strips to create a thicker laminated part. The three parts are: 1. Seat Back – 7/8” thick (formed with 5 or 6 strips)2. Back Rest – 7/8” thick (formed with 5 or 6 strips)3. Slats – 3/8” thick (formed with 3 or 4 strips) (5 per stool) As I plan the construction, I start to realize that I have 6 stools with 7 curved parts each. That works out to 42 glue ups. Each one requires...

Workbench #6: Skirts & Vises

09-05-2012 02:00 AM by twobyfour16 | 3 comments »

So, the top needed skirts, obviously, so time to laminate again. This time, I used 3 pieces of 1×8 black walnut. This gave me a skirt that is 2 1/4” thick, and 6 3/4” wide – after cleaning up the edges. I glued up enough blanks for the front skirt, two end skirts, and chops for both vises. I did not get very many pictures of this process, as I had plenty of lamination pics earlier….I will say that these skirts were BEEFY! And heavy. So, now I had to figure...

08-09-2007 12:59 AM by Bob Babcock | 12 comments »

A couple of pictures of glueing up the edges from last night and then todays lunch break. I didn’t even eat I want to finish this so bad. Spooky night operation. Edges glued up Lunch break today. The drawknife lets me remove material fast. Gotta be careful though, real easy to take too much. It also can take a almost paper thin shaving. After some sanding and some more….the back This little 3M sanding pad with their new sandpaper works really well. I cam...
