  1. Cyanoacrylate (CA) Glue and Micro Mesh Pad Caddie for Pen Turning

    I made this Cyanoacrylate (CA) Glue and Micro Mesh Pad Caddie for working on pens at the lathe. I got tired of not remembering where the micro mesh was located and the various CA glues were always in different places. This caddie also has French Cleats on the back so it can be fixed on the...
  2. 9" Butcher Block Bowl from Dunnage

    Decided to try something different, a butcher block bowl. Tablesaw wasn't set properly so there was some gap in the "square" sections, so after turning I had to fill some gaps in the bottom with shavings and superglue. Due to the nature of superglue on open end-grain I actually finished the...
  3. Winnie the Pooh coat hanger

    I created a painted scene with the main Winnie the Pooh characters for a child's coat rack. Sorry for the poor quality pictures, but there are three places to hang a coat, one painted as a honey pot, one as flowers and one as a misspelled sign which reads "poohs thoughtful spot".
  4. Barbie doll bed made on the lathe

    This is a bed I made for my grand daughter for Christmas. It is 15 ins. long by 14 ins. tall. Made from walnut. All the turning blanks where 5/8ths square.
  5. Simple mirror frame.

    This is a simple mirror frame I made to go with my daughter's bed http://lumberjocks.com/projects/20634 and dresser http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27445. Nothing too fancy. The only addition will be some hooks screwed into the sides so she can hang her medals or some jewelery from the sides...
  6. Ambrosia Maple Bentwood Ring.

    Still practicing… I have a lot of this maple, and since it's easy to work with, I've been doing all of my practice with it. I don't really know how to do inlay yet… so instead, I positioned one of the streaks in the maple to make a nice offset line… it's definitely not the same, but it's the...
  7. Custom straight razor in Bloodwood

    I finished this set of razor scales a while ago. The blade was ground by a guy I know from some straight razor meetings (yes, they exist). He ground it too thin to hone by normal means, so I got it for free and threw some bloodwood scales onto it. The finish is cyanoacrylate (Gorilla Glue Super...
  8. Seven Samurai

    Before I start this is not a glorification of war or weapons. I find some of the aesthetic of the Samurai interesting and that has informed this piece of work. This is a seven sided box, with legs and a drop-in lid. Made from Holly, Ebony, Birch and Brass with a foam lined base. The body of...

    As a long time user of CA (cyanoacrylic) glue I have developed some methods of use and storage that I want to pass along. The stuff is expensive as glues go and constantly throwing out old hard glue and going to the hardware store for more is a pain. So here is the method of storage to combat...
  10. Hand Tools
    I recently got 5 hand planes and would like to restore them all. I have instructions on how to clean them up and give them a electrolysis bath and everything. The only problem I need help with, is what's the cheapest way to sharpen the blades? Should I use wet stones? sandpaper? find a shop to...
  11. Wood & Lumber
    Hi there fellow LJ's. I have been trying to choose a glue for the following application - I am gluing a piece of 16 guage stainless steel wire into an oversized end-grain hole - wire is about 1.3mm and the hole is about 1.6mm (1/16 inch) and about 3/4 of an inch deep. The wire is for a hook on...

    Readers Poll: Choose the Tagline for Woodworking Safety Week 2008 As we kick off Woodworking Safety Week 2008, I thought I'd offer some improvement on marketing it to the woodworking community. It seemed like something was missing: a tagline. I mean, just saying "Woodworking Safety Week 2008"...

    Cyanoacrylate wood finish? I thought "What if I coated the whole ring in cyanoacrylate finish?" ...and I tried it. The rings have since been through regular everyday wear including dishwashings, handwashings and showers. END RESULT: This finish is holding up better than both Waterlox and...
  14. Finishing
    I am a wood ring maker and have recently stumbled upon the cyanoacrylate finishing method which I find very appealing. I have been using Danish Oil to finish my rings so far, followed by a coating of beeswax. This provides a nice finish but unfortunately doesn't provide the long term durability...

  16. Woodturning
    My daughter has gotten into pen making on her mini-lathe, and she's turned out some beauties. But there is one specific step that is causing her problems and a lot of frustration. I thought some of you experienced pen makers might be able to help her out. The problem comes at the finishing...

    BURN WARNING I burned the heck out of my fingertip with CA glue this weekend - who knew? I would post some pics but I don't have the online skills - just imagine a big blister on the fingertip like you touched something really hot ;) I know many of you use CA (Cyanoacrylate) glues for various...

    Hey guys, so I am building a yellow pine mobile base for my ordered Sawstop 52" PCS and I can't find the dimensions from the right (or left) side of the base cabinet to the legs for the extension table… I know the overall width (85 1/4") but I do not know where the table legs come down. Can...

    My head is just a jumbled mess with all the topics on Dust Collecting and it's getting to the point of frustration to look for answers without doing another post. As my garage shop comes together, I am nearing in pulling the final trigger to buy all the duct work to go to my DC and Super Dust...

    Hey guys! I currently use Gorilla Glue for my wearable wooden rings, particularly the ones that are built up from several layers of wood and cut out. However, for the bentwood rings I am looking into cyanoacrylate / "super" glues. Today I tried the Gorilla brand super glue, and found it so...
