Plywood question... - 8 replies

I am building a couple cases from this 3/4”-7 core ply(5-solid wood core, 2-veneer). Plans call for five hard maple drawer runners dadoed in at a 1/4” depth. Upon machining the 27” tall, 20” deep side panels they developed an outside bow around a 1/16” as seen in the pic. Runners have been glued in at this point...

Is there another oil I can use in a pinch? I have a cheap electric chain saw that I’m using to cut down a dead cherry tree in my yard. I have air tool oil, 5/20 motor oil, hydraulic shock oil and WD 40. What have you used because you didn’t plan ahead?

woodcraft gift cards - 1 reply

I emailed Japan Woodworker to ask if they would accept Woodcraft gift cards awhile back. I do get JW catalogs and emails from them. Their reply was prompt but it must just blended in with all of their others. They said you should be able to use Woodcraft gift cards at JW. I knew that Woodcraft and JW are sister companies, but was unaware of this...

We went to mimi’s cafe in here in Salt lake city for my father’s day brunch and I came across this in their lobby. Looks pretty old. Imbeded in the top are chip sharpened rocks in rows, near the end are a couple iron rods looped back into the top. As you can see the right side has been sawn to a slope.

chamfer question - 13 replies

Is this chamfer possible with a router? Maybe with a template. It looks like it could be done after it is shaped and assembled. I’ve had this transition in my head all night. I would like to know how to keep those crisp edges intact across the corner and along the fair. Alternative methods? ...

In need of a sea worthy finish. - 8 replies

My father retired to the Oregon coast a few years ago and has since taken up crabbing. For father’s day I’m making him a crab gauge/caliper from cherry. It is used to measure dungeness crab by their shell’s, anything under 5 3/4” must be released from the pots. He is just a hobbyist but, I would like it to be as durable a...

Grain direction bending strength question for bowsaw project. - 2 replies

I am attempting to build a bowsaw using Gramercy parts. I stopped before laying the templates down. My material is cherry, I would say rift rather than quarter sawn. Although not ideal, it is what I have available for this project. My question is which side of the frame should the stretcher be on for strength? Bark side or core side? Does it mat...

hand shaping question - 9 replies

I am about ready to start a new project using only hand tools. I will probably be using dimensional lumber such as 4×4, 4×6, 2×4 out of fir. In my design I would like to add some gentle curves to one side of the 4×4 purely for asthetic appeal. Length of curve will be aprox 12” to 18”. The proportions in the pic are what I’m aft...
