Hey Guys! Well today was a big day! But more on that later. I started off by prepping the interior surfaces for the stain they’ll receive later. It’s a lot easier to do this before the box is assembled! Here are all the components of the staining and glue-up process: Next, I stained the already prepped bottom. Once the stain was dry, it was time to glue up the box carcase First, I laid out all the parts, in the order that they comprise the box sides. Then I put ...

I also started milling some rough cherry into some usable boards for my next project, and made a set of winding sticks to help with that.

Well I Got Ur Done today.Maybe now I’ll have wood computer cases out of my blood for now.First I cut up the top and made sure it would mesh with the frame.Then sanded every thing up one last time, and put some hand rubbed finish on it. Here she’s all wired up and on the go.I’m going to stick with a stock cooler for now, it’s so quiet and being it’s on a shelf right by me ear quiet is good.
I woke up this morning after dreaming of my car. Last week I had taken it to Halifax to drop it off for a complete paint job and restoration. The process would take a few weeks to complete. In my dream, I had picked the car up and there was visible bondo and putty all over it. What paint there was cracked and there were many areas (like the hood) that had those tiny circles ground into it from using an orbital sander. I was sad. I stuck my finger into the putty along the door frame and i...
As some of you may know I have been using a Shapeoko 2 CNC in my woodshop for a while now to help with some of my commission projects. Inventables have since released their new CNC mill, the X-Carve! Here is a video where I shop the upgrade of the Shapeoko 2 to the X-Carve. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/m1pJCnfsKxQ
I remember living out on my smallholding and dreaming a little house for myself. Back in those days, the dream was to build a small cottage with a classic staircase. The idea was to build the house so that I could build a staircase. Not put the staircase in the house….you get my drift. This idea remained with me and when I moved to our small property in the village, that was my first thought. Staircase. Except. Bloody thing had twisted in my mind. Spiral staircase. The line...
Objective This boat is going to get wet and stay wet for days at a time. I plan to seal the interior with epoxy to give it at least some protection from the elements. My main concern was with the plywood. That is sealed well with the fiberglass cloth. The keel, gunnels, and ribs will be sealed by caulking the seams where they meet the plywood with thickened epoxy and coating the rest with unthickened epoxy. Caulking I imagine a builder could use silicone caulk to seal the joints,...
Hey Guys! Well, I got a little more time in the shop today, and got a little more work done! First, I sanded the interior surfaces of the box sides and botttom. It’s much easier to do this before the box is assembled. I started with 120 grit, then 150, and 220. Tage Frid said woodworkers sand too much, so I’m trying to cut down a little. I eliminated the 180 grit…......! Next, I used the cutoff from the lid as a test board for 2 different coloring methods. First...
Fiberglass Experiment I applied a layer of fiberglass cloth to the plywood hull panels before work, betting they would be “green” cured in the afternoon upon my return. Using Raka 127 Resin and Raka 350 hardener at 72 degrees and 48% humidity the fiberglass was set perfectly in about 8 hours. It was bonded, yet flexible enough to not restrict the plywood from curving around the hull ribs. The epoxy is wet into the fiberglass cloth with a foam roller. I never pay...

The language of the site is very easy to understand and I didn’t go into too much woodworking terminology so as that people not familiar with woodworking ...
