Joints #4: The Reverse Glue Joint Aug 2015

08-27-2015 05:47 AM by robscastle | 3 comments »

The reverse glue joint is exactly that . Reverse. A matching profile is cut on each piece to be joined simply by reversing the timber before cutting. Glue. The joint is designed to be fixed by glueing. Joint. Its one of the many joint methods available to join timber. However...

Veggie Bin / Cookbook Shelf #2: Finally Getting Started !

08-27-2015 02:54 AM by RandyH | 0 comments »

This blog is now about a Work In Progress. Well, its been a long time since I first posted this – but I have been putting together a little bit of a woodshop out in my garage. This has taken a lot of effort in getting the space cleaned up, cleared out and improved. I first built a set of large storage shelves for putting all (or at least most of) our storage bins onto. This created a lot of usable floor space. I also added insulation above the garage, and glued 2” thick foam...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #21: Fabricating the Flip Blind Door Frames

Overview I’ve enjoyed using the layout boat for fishing, but duck season is only a month away and it’s time to finish the final stages of making this boat “disappear” from wary ducks in the marsh. That involves fabricating flip blind doors, a dog blind, and brushing out the entire boat. Fabricating the flip blind door frames requires head brackets, foot brackets, and tubular framing. Head Brackets Both aluminum crossbars attach to brackets screwed to the...

Hints and Tips #9: Occasional Pocket Hole Joinery

08-27-2015 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

While I cannot be called a die hard fan of pocket hole joinery, I’ll admit it has some uses. Such a use came about today as I was completing a project (to be posted in a day or two). This method of making pocket holes without an expensive jig I saw in a video by Steve Carmichael. (the link starts the video right at the part I’m talking about). [Above] These are the tools I used to do this procedure. Your choices may vary. I’m using a 3/8 inch spade bit, 1/8 in. twis...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #20: Fishing Boat Conversion

08-27-2015 01:09 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Overview We wanted to have more comfort while using the layout boat for fishing, so we bought two pedestal bases and adjustable height pedestals to mount Wise fishing seats. This required replacing the 1/4” plywood floor with a 3/4” plywood floor to take the stress of a 9” diameter base. Floor Replacement We bought Springfield Taper-Lock pedestal bases and their 13”-21” adjustable height pedestals. A view of the base under the floor. The a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1610: Keeping Busy

08-26-2015 11:11 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

There are few things that make me feel better than seeing someone enjoying my patterns and making projects from them. After all – the reason I began designing in the first place was so others could learn and have fun with them. I try to make each pattern I create into a mini-lesson, so that people of all skill levels can create the project themselves. Often I get notes or emails asking me if I mind if people change up my designs a little bit. Not only do I not mind it, but I encour...

Working with recycled timber #50: Edna's Kitchen Work Benches making the tops

08-26-2015 08:30 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »
