Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #2: Progress!

08-02-2010 02:05 AM by RonPeters | 2 comments »

Spent the day filling in the spline slots and trimming. Used the PC 557 to set biscuits and glued up one mitered side. Plan to glue up the other side in a few hours after this one sets up. Then on to the top, back, and bottom before attaching the sides. Drawers after that. I am totally impressed with the biscuit joiner. It will save me hours of time and improve my accuracy 100%. All I can say is WOW! What an invention.

Pietenpol Air Camper #2: Shop Prep

09-09-2010 07:46 PM by K5YAC | 2 comments »

I don’t have a shop large enough at home to work on this project. My garage could have been used, but I would have to work on small asemblies and then store them somewhere. Fortunately for me (and the family) I was able to rent a hangar for much less than the cost of a storage facility, and with electricity available I was able to set up shop. In order to make efficient and effective use of my space, I would need workbenches and mobile tools that could adjust to whatever phase of the...

Okay so this is my first attempt at outdoor furniture. The pictures were taken with my phone so they are a little unclear. This is a bar that I made to go with the bench set. this is a bench patio set I’ve made with three planters. Any tips on how to finish them or what they would sell for finished?

Cutting Boards #4: Final Glue-Up and Flattening

03-30-2012 02:18 PM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

After the last glue-up, and flattening the panel, I cross cut the panel in strips 1.25” wide. Taking those strips I turned them so the end grain was showing and flipped every other one end for end to create the checkerboard pattern. I am sure we have all seen Marc Spag's (aka: TheWoodWhisperer) video. (7 – How to Make a Butcher Block End Grain Cutting Board) I am sure Marc loves all of the extra attention on the subject of cutting boards. Glue up was somewhat frustrating because I...

Insulated Garage Doors #1: Insulated Sectional Overhead

04-12-2012 11:02 PM by Peter | 2 comments »

I was inspired last week to find yet another use for my Sing Honeycomb Panels. We’re launching a line of insulated panels for overhead garage doors. I’ve noticed that too many nice homes have dinged up garage doors. It’s because garage doors are expensive to repair. You don’t want to replace a panel for a golf ball dent, so you let it go until the damage is beyond cosmetic. Soon, you’ve run into the garage door with your car or time has made the edges drafty, so ...

At The Half - Football 10 Monkey 6

08-27-2012 12:41 AM by cutworm | 2 comments »

What a day. I bought a woodworking plan a few days back called 24 Hour Workbench. Started on it this weekend. The plan calls for SYP so I picked up a few 2.8’s at HD. Started on the frame- mortise and tenons. Went well fro a while. The first tenons were 3/4” cut them and the mortises ok. The next ones were 2” long tenons – no problem. The mortises however have proven to be a challenge. First hole and my forstner bit got stuck. Trying to get it off and the chuc...
