Kitchen Island Cart #13: Drop Leaf Glue up

09-28-2017 06:06 PM by EdsCustomWoodCrafts | 0 comments »

I needed to go shopping for more clamps ( it’s true never have enough) so I decided to buy 4 of the Bessey H style pipe clamps $80 or so later I am back in the shop doing test run with the new clamps and they didn’t fail.. as a side note I found this YouTube video on the use of cauls and pvc pipe so it used it The idea is to apply pressure accross the end grain of the panel using cauls so I put 2 cauls under the end grain and 2 over the end grain thus keeping the panel from ...

Musical Instruments #5: Marimba Resonators Time to build

12-24-2016 06:17 PM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

Time to start on the resonators. These are the pipes that hang below the keys and give the instrument its signature sound. The keys when struck sound like a musical note but they sound more like a piano than a marimba.I went with as thin wall PVC pipe as I could get locally. I believe for the 2” it was about 140psi and the 1 1/2” about 160psi. The plans give the length to cut as I cut them i wrote the note inside the tube to keep them straight. Once they were all cut glued th...

My dust collector is in my garage and then piped into my shop across the ceiling. I did not like the metal strap han...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #4: Installing Anchor Pole Through-Hull Brackets

05-14-2015 12:22 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Requirement An option during the build is to install anchor pole through-hull brackets. Anchor poles are pushed through the hull and into the marsh bottom to hold the layout boat in place in shallow water. I figured that if one was good, two would be even better to hold the bow and stern in place during crosswind set-ups of a decoy spread. Anchor poles are quicker and won’t get snagged in decoy lines like a regular anchor and line could. I installed braces of 8/4 stock, leftove...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #11: Connecting, hanging, and shrinkng dust collection pvc

04-23-2014 11:24 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

My method for making pipe hangers, connecting dust collection pipe for air tightness without tape, and shrinking pvc to hug blast gate flanges for small shop owners This is only my method of doing this. There are many good ways and your mileage may vary. I just thought I’d share it in case someone can used it. Thanks for watching. If the video doesn’t show below then you can see it here
