Cedar Strip Canoe Build # 13 Finally Made It!

12-29-2015 12:22 AM by farmerdude | 7 comments »

Well, I think we should start off today with a lesson. Look at where the first two strips meet between the tape. It looks great. I like this point, I can really pull down on them when stapling. However, walk around and look at it from the other side. Its from yesterday so it is all set up, no moving it now. It’s not horrible because I can fill the gap later on, just don’t like it.From now on there will be no clamp room. I was able to sneak in one c-clamp. ...

Pine Project, 4x4s #5: Mortises chopped, a bit of glue spread around

01-07-2016 10:23 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Some say Pine is easy to work with a chisel…some say something else….Anyway, laid out the first of 8 mortises And chopped for a bit. needed a few tools for the job. Since none of the tenons are the same thickness….different width chisels. Needed a way to keep track of which part when where…..went upstairs, and grabbed a black sharpie. Since this was the first mortise, a single spot on each part. Then, all I have to do is set a 1 spot tenon in a 1 spot...

Box Fan Into Buffer

06-30-2009 05:13 PM by PineInTheAsh | 7 comments »

Re: The box fan that has been under discussion on LJ for dust collection. Can you remove the typical 5-fin plastic blade on a box fan and turn it into a buffer or put it to other such use? I have the popular under $20. Lasko 20” box fan sold by the big box stores. With its size it would seem a candidate for a nice, slow-turning buffer or even a fine-grit sander. Of course, this all depends on the the motor’s shaft. Is ithe shaft soft plastic? Is it simply too underpowered...

Thank you to all Lumberjocks

08-05-2009 03:15 PM by Rustic | 3 comments »

I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences on the loss of my Grandfather. He was laid to rest yesterday. It means so much to me and my family that “total strangers” (of which, to me you are not), gave me such an outpouring of support during this difficult time. I learned yesterday and over the last few days just what an incredible man he really was. He loved everybody. He gave of himself without any expetation of something in return. ...
