Arched Bed #5: Learning Curve

09-23-2009 05:59 AM by newTim | 7 comments »

So after building the giant forms I’m finally ready for the first glue lamination. Since this arch section is made out of 8/4 maple I decided to resaw on the tablesaw. I used a thin kerf blade and set a Grip-Tite about 1/4” opposite the fence as a stop. I’ve turned the saw 180 degrees in the shop so I can keep the jointer out and have better (central) access to the dust collector. So far it is working great. As you can see from the pictures the form was large and the ar...

Arched Bed #6: Golden Arches

09-24-2009 06:03 AM by newTim | 4 comments »

About time to move on to something else but first I have to finish the other two arches. I used the form and top arch to shape the bottom arch and just the top arch for the cap arch which is made out of jatoba. The other two are maple. I used Titebond III on the maple arches and barely had enough working time. I used Titebond Plastic Resin glue on the jatoba. It foamed up a lot and had plenty of open time, but it is expensive. Next time around I think I’ll try my hand at mixing up...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #16: Building a Set of Oars

06-26-2015 05:12 AM by DustyMark | 3 comments »

Overview Even with the boat painted, there are lots of little projects to complete to make it “operational.” One of those is to build a custom set of oars. I could buy a set for $46 at Gander Mountain, but that wouldn’t do! I purchased very helpful oar plans from Chesapeake Light Craft. The smallest length for which the plans provided measurements was 6’. I determined that 5’ oars were plenty for this low boat and decided to modify their plans to suit my ...

Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

10-19-2012 10:57 PM by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

Mission Style Bed #1: Bed Posts Pt. 1

03-20-2012 08:21 PM by Fraser Gandy | 9 comments »

So, I’ve started the bed and its been going pretty good so far. I had all the stock that i had already bought (still need to find a few pieces and pick up the hardward, however its not Really needed until the end, so im not worried about it) resting in the shop for about 10 days which is good! The wood im using for the this project is Poplar, its easy enough to work with, it stains up beautifully, and was readily available and on the lower end of the price market. Onto the woodworkin...

Opposing Arch Table #7: Laminating the Arches

11-17-2008 07:54 AM by Blake | 6 comments »

Finally I have the first set of arches glued and clamped in the bending form. I have only made the arches for the hall table so far. Once I finish it I will go back and do the coffee table. Since I only made one form for each shape I did it in two stages. I glued the first two arches yesterday and just got the identical (“opposing”) set in the forms tonight. I used my Thin-Strip Jig to cut the bending strips. That was very repetitive work for a while. I cut all the strips fo...

Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

10-18-2012 02:11 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #4: All done but the finish.

08-20-2007 03:10 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

I completed the other paddle this weekend. Both are all done exept for the finishing. I’ve decided against doing any fiberglassing. I’m planning on using the West Systems epoxy with the 207 hardener and then 3 coats of Epifanes varnish. I’m going to wait for the warmer drier weather later in the week. I’ve noticed big differences in the epoxy finish depending on the weather. I didn’t take as many pictures of the process on this one…basically the same as ...

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #3: Finishing #1 - Starting #2

08-13-2007 04:19 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

I started #2 today. This one I’m shooting for better performance. I’m only using five 1/4” laminations this time instead of six and only one is mahogany instead of two. No lyptus in the handle this time either. The difference in weight is very noticable already. Carving out the shark for the inlay Dry fit. The splines for the blade. I book matched the front and rear blade faces. The front is going to be cedar, the rear mahogany. The light cedar front will have a ...

Next Generation Cheese boards... #1: Make a start...

11-05-2011 10:28 PM by degoose | 18 comments »

Today, as I make my way out to the workshop, ideas are flying around… having looked at the information on lamination design that Scott sent….wow… so many new thoughts are spinning through my head… I had an inkling as to how it was done… but now the technical part is explained… So, to the shed…..rip, glue, crosscut, glue, crosscut at a different angle and glue again… then sand, sand, and sand some more… These three boards were made us...
