I am building a cradle and am using black walnut for the first time. A friend indicated that glueing will be a issue. To accomplish this, He said that a bleeching foam would be needed. This will help in finishing as well. I have never heard of this and would all inputs pro or con. Thanks
Before glueing, get a stick and wrap it with a paper towel, and tape it to the stick, get the towel wet with water, after glueing you will want to put it in the bore end to wipe out the excess glue that has spill into the bore. You can choose your own glue for wood. I use titebond 3.You will want enough clamps to clamp about 4” (101.6 mm) (10.16 CM) apart from each other, I clamp both ends first. because of the glue, the pieces will slide. match your side lines together, and the cent...
Barb is always taking pictures of Mushrooms, insect, weeds, & flowers. I uploaded some of her pictures to the computer today, & discovered this one. A poodle dogs face in a puff ball. Nature can sure do some wonders. We now both agree that it looks more like a Bear. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Another picture of a Dandelion puff ball.
you should notice in this picture that the SAC and the TSH are up against the block. Every flute makers has his own idea as to where to put the TSH; either against the block or some will measure about 1/4” (6.35mm) (0.635 cm) from the block wall. I have done it both ways, and preferr to do it against the wall or block.After your have gotten the TSH and SAC file as shown in the picture. Measure form the SAC and the TSH 1” towards the mouth and 1” towards the foot.(25.4 mm...
Use the small files to bring your TSH and SAC into shape, at this point it does not need to be perfect.continue to work on the sac and tsh, remembering not to go over the line, they must remain 3/8” by 7/32(9.525mm by 5.55625 mm) (0.9525 cm by 0.555625)this picture show a ruff look at what you will try to accomplish as you file, these pictures by no means are done.

So I overcame the router issue with a new router. I bought a Triton 2 1/4 HP model. It seems to work OK so far, although all of the accessories are different than the Porter Cable versions, so I am slowly building up what I have for it. Some of the attachments are a bit awkward—the plate to support bushings didn’t line up quite right with the bottom of the router, and the hose connection requires a threaded 1 1/2 hose. Fortunately, I could work around both these issues. On ...
