Phenolic Plywood I've checked it out

2129 days ago by Karson | 28 comments »

Two hundred and 43 days ago MSKI posted a blog on Phenolic Plywood He had found some interesting stuff on the web that had 4 X 8 sheets of Phenolic Plywood for $51.00 a sheet. The stuff at Woodcraft is 65.00 for a 2 X 4’ size. I thought I’d check it out. I used the WhiteCap Industries web site. This past summer my wife was flying to see her mother and she was leaving from the Baltimore Airport. Whitecap Industries has a store about 15 miles from the airport. So I went prepar...

Around the shop #3: Finaly some woodworking to talk about

2129 days ago by dsb1829 | 5 comments »

Well, a banner weekend in the books. Great weather. Good beers. Family fun. Garage time. Yah know, the works. Started out on Friday with our date night. We have been exchanging kid watch with another couple every other Friday. If you can talk anyone in your circle of friends into this sort of thing I recommend you do so. It is nice to have some quality time with Mrs. Doug. Saturday I was up early and into the garage at a decent hour. I really wanted to get some work done on the h...

I’ve started a project, a shaker-style workbench found in the Dec. issue of Popular Woodworking. I’ll be going slow with this one learning as I go. It’ll be made of solid maple and will use most of the tools I’ve bought and tricks I’ve learned so far.I’ve got the legs made and glued to a sturdy base now. I think it’ll weigh about 400lb when finished. I’ll have to bolt the big pieces together so I can move it if I ever decide to sell my house.

Grand Daughters Crib #3: Inside curved panels

2129 days ago by Les Hastings | 4 comments »

This entry is sort of a repeat from the last one. A new form was made for the inside curved panels. These panels however are mostly flat on the inside part of the crib. Only the the very top portion is curved. Once again a form was made from 3/4 mdf. As before the wanut veneer was bagged to the 1/8 bending birch flat first. Then placed back in the bag with the bender board to complete the panel. Below is the panel just clamped between the legs. Now that the panels are co...

How time flies

2129 days ago by plaidflannelman | 2 comments »

It has been many moons since I last logged in to LJ. I would love to say that I missed it, but to be completely honest, I haven’t had time to miss it. Between a new job, my company being purchased by another, a smattering of various web projects, and many other facets of real life; I just haven’t had the time to do much of anything else. I still have plans for wood-crafted projects, not the least of which is my Stevens shotgun, but I have no idea when I will get to them. Hopef...

Holtzapffel workbench project #5: base joinery

2130 days ago by martin007 | 8 comments »

Hi all Before I made the base joinery, I planned the top and it’s end grain the circular saw on one side, the flush bit for the rest I got some hobby time lately and was able to make all mortises and tenons for the base. I used the drill press for the mortises, it is not as clean as a routed mortise but it is quiet and I can do them while the kids are asleep, which is when I get most of my shop time. I used a chisel afterward to flatten the wavy wall. The teno...
