Workbench #12: Laminating the Top

01-31-2012 09:14 AM by HungryTermite | 8 comments »

The time has come to start making this thing look like a bench. In order to make the short stretchers I need to know what the final width of the bench is going to be. I am mostly playing the length, width, and thickness of the top by ear since I didn’t know how much I was going to have to remove from the construction grade wood I used. I purchased the pieces for the top 1 year ago so they have had quite a bit of time to dry out as well as bend and twist and warp. There are also some...

Workbench #3: The Build - Top

04-02-2013 01:43 AM by Marty5965 | 2 comments »

So I began the build with the top, figuring that I could use it to build the base. The wife bought me a Vika for Christmas so it is my temporary work bench (along with my trusty, old, Workmate and saw horses).As you may have seen in my earlier entry, the top was to consist of two, 8 piece laminations. I face planed them with my #7 to ensure good glue up and glued them at the same time as two separate chunks. Here was my first screw-up (should have planed them four square). This was clos...

In the wood shop today #26: Pulling off a bent lamination from the form, for a metal and walnut table base

02-02-2014 01:29 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 3 comments »

Hi everyone, Have not posted here in a little while, been keeping busy in the wood shop! I’ve finally put together another video for my your tube channel. I’ve been working on a dining table base made with steel and some bent laminated Walnut. Have a look here as I pull the newly formed leg piece off of the mold and show you exactly how the table base will look once completed. Thanks hope you like it.Paul

Next Generation Cheese boards... #4: The third cut is the weirdest....

11-07-2011 11:59 AM by degoose | 17 comments »

Squared off the top…. here is the third cut…Now rotate every other piece… And line up the pieces… A quick border… just a few offcuts to frame the design… The piece on the right is cut parallel and moved over to the other end for the glue up… this make both ends fit the clamps better.. That was easy hey???

Standup Paddleboard Paddles #5: Time for the water.

08-25-2007 01:43 AM by Bob Babcock | 10 comments »

We should be paddling these next weekend at Lime Rock . My brother is going to be racing over the weekend in his Peyote MKII in the Rolex Vintage Festival. It should be a great time. Here are the finished paddles….actually I still need to varnish them but they shouldn’t change much. The one on the right is the 2nd one. Much lighter than the 1st and likely to be the one my brother chooses. Blade fronts…I really like #2…I hope it performs well with the rolled edge....

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #20: Joinery Shortcuts

08-21-2010 04:12 PM by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

I was able to squeeze another good day in the shop around work. I ran off to buy some more oak, then got home and planed enough of it down to glue up the stretchers/aprons for the table ends. While the laminations were cooking, I decided to give the BeadLock Pro a whirl. Having made integral tenons with chiseled mortises, and loose tenons with the router, I have to say this method is considerably easier and faster. First, I was able to cut off the parts to their finished length, without...

Wormy soft maple rocker ( Hal Taylor version ) #9: Lot's of sanding, Glueing the headrest and mounting rockers / shaping rockers

03-10-2010 02:48 AM by Canadian Woodworks | 2 comments »

By the end of these pictures I’m siting in a rocking chair, that rocks and is about 95% complete! So I sanded to 320 grit everywhere that it would be hard to once the back supports were installed for good, as well as the supports them selves. Then glued the head rest using some clamps to keep it in line and using the screws as clamps, you remove 2 of the screws once dry. I then turned her over, the chairs that is and drilled my holes for the rockers and attached, proceeded to s...

Rocking Chair Build #3: Laminations and seat

10-18-2011 07:03 PM by Topapilot | 1 comment »

I have been busy on the rocking chair, just not busy posting updates. I’ve made 8 back braces two at a time on the glue up form. The back braces are walnut, ash, ash, walnut (4 layers) and are sequenced; the braces will have lams 1-8 of the same billet visable left to right as you look at the chair. From the back it will be that way as well. Here’s the glue up: The rockers are glued up one at a time, with an ash lam in the #4 position of 9 total lams. The lams are sequ...

I Rise to the Challenge ... sort of

04-11-2008 03:48 PM by Hibernicvs | 4 comments »

Okay, here’s my best shot. I tried to use “sketch up,” but I figured that, combined with tax time (I’m a CPA) the frustration was too much. I hand-drew my idea from a sketch I made during singing practice a few weeks ago, while listening to the Basses and Baritones (or, if you want an inside joke, the Third and Fourth Tenors) screw up their parts while the director tore out what little hair he has left. Of course, I did this while watching some weird Sherlock Holmes...
