Woodworking Project #1: Build our new pastry board (kneading board - dough board)

09-06-2019 08:45 AM by fatmansat | 6 comments »

The time has come to retire the old kneading board, and for this I have recovered beech planks which, as you will see from the video, I have joined together with certified glue for food and after a lot of sanding I have finished with Vaseline oil for use.Watch the full video tutorial:

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #12: First planks, the garboards

As a home hobbyist in a big city, not working as much in BF as in “oh look, a log!” I decided to keep things simple on myself and go with KD DF for stickering my slabs. I have a bunch of really old, really dry stuff, and in fact tried to build some finger-jointed frames for another project I’d like to post about someday, but dropping one only a foot to the ground caused all 4 corners to shatter. It’s that dry. I figure that means it’ll be fairly inert, though who...

It’s been more than I bargained for so far, but worth it. A whole slideshow can be found here. A few select pictures tell the story of where all my spare time has gone in the last couple weeks: -b
