Hide Glue #8: Video on Hide Glue reversibility

06-04-2015 02:15 AM by Patricelejeune | 6 comments »

We just published a new video on the reversibility of the animal glues and specifically hide glue through a presentation and 2 projects. I hope you enjoy those and it answers some of the questions we receive often regarding the understanding of reversibility. Of course Old Brown Glue has the same property.

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...

Easy Build Workshop Stool.

07-21-2014 08:57 PM by David White | 5 comments »

NOTE: A PDF version of this post and the Sketchup model are available in the downloads section of my blog. If you’re planning to build this stool, I suggest you get them as the images herein are of pretty poor resolution. My time in the shop is pretty limited and building shop furniture is not something I particularly enjoy (I’m more of a fine furniture kinda guy), so when I do feel the need to make something for use in the workshop I like it to be simple, sturdy and quick to build....

A pressurized board steamer you can make quickly

04-05-2012 10:27 PM by shipwright | 12 comments »

This entry was prompted by this forum topic. I thought it would be of interest to look at a different kind of steamer that is capable of creating more, hotter steam than the average atmospheric pressure ones that are limited to something around 212 deg. F and less at altitude. I don’t have access to either my rusty (but still trusty) old steamer right now or the photo of it that I know I have at home so I did a quick 2D of it in sketchup. Several years ago I designed this one to be p...

Pin Router Jig

03-21-2014 08:47 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

A while ago I put up a project where I made some straight wooden track, compatible with Brio and Learning Curve (Thomas) track. Since then, I have kept in the back of my mind how I might easily and cheaply make curved track, switches, and more easily form the male and female ends (without buying expensive, specialized router bits.) I believe I have found the answer. A pin router jig. I first learned about these from a video by Jim Steinbrecher, and later by a much clearer and concise ...

Everything there is of course completely free. If you have any comments or suggestions feel free to drop them in the Contact form on the site. I hope this can be of some use to someone.

1935 16ft Garwood Speedster Replica #3: It looks like a boat - sort of

Last night I finished cutting out the stringers with the circular saw and and smoothing them with my Stanley No 7. I just couldn’t resist. I just had to see what she will look like in real life. the “chine log” is a piece of scrap i used to visualize a fair curve. For that I think I will use white oak. Any suggestions? Even the wife the visualize the end result! Next up is a ton of epoxy work encapsulating the frames floor timbers and stringers. Its no...

Make a Dewalt 733 planer dust hood for less then 5 bucks This is my first blog so I hope I get it right. I bought a used 733 a few months ago that did not come with a dust collection hood. After getting it home I had to try it out, ran a pine board through it and blew chips and dust 5 foot . Well being frugal as I am, no make that cheap I decided to try and make something to get me by until I could find a factory hood. This is what I came up with, I have been using it for a few month...
