I need to fill in some cracks on the ends of an Alder board, that is end grain. One crack is 1/16 wide. I will put a natural finish on the board, so what I use to fill, it will be varnished. Do I use a glue of sorts, and what would you consider. I know this seems like a basic question, but I too know that the filler will be exposed. Thank you.
Today I went to a bandsaw box demo at the Cincinnati Ohio Woodcraft store. It was very interesting. The fellow doing it was very good at explaining the process. I also spen my gift card from last Christmas.
So after my HUGE error with the leg vise (it blocked the top drawer)I moved it over and mounted it on the outside of the leg. I’m not 100% satisfied with it, so there will probably be some changes. I did my best to cover up the holes that formerly housed the leg vise’s bottom and screw.Also I put the drawer fronts on the drawers. Here is the new mounting of the leg vise on the outside of the leg. once again, i dont love it, but it will work for now.More later...
With the face frames built, it was time to build the raised panel doors and the drawer fronts. I used the Freud rail and stile bit set to do the cope and stick profile cutting. Then I used a Freud raised panel bit to make the raised panels. I used a Bosch 1617 router in a router table, slowed it down to it’s slowest speed and made several passes until I got the final result I was looking for. The drawer fronts have flat panels made of maple ply. Gluing up two at a time. ...
Ok—I’m not going to argue the virtues of the dust collection in modern psychosis treatment . . . but my therapy session is all about cutting up wood. Hmm . . . I’m on the Lumberjocks site so I guess I’m in the right place. :-) My first order of business was making sure I was properly protected. I was cutting the wood outside to boot on a nice windy day . . . that helped. Gotta love 70 degree days! (I’m smiling under that dust mask!) The first ord...
i have had a frued router for a couple, maybe a few, months now that i haven’t been able to use b/c it didn’t fit my old router plate. i have been using my bosch that i have had for about 1 1/2yrs. the above table adjustment is a joke. the threads that raise/lower it are so small, they clog with saw dust in no time, then the allen wrench stripped b/c it was also too small. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41SFE45QPBL._SL500_AA300_.jpg It came with a base for the table and a ...
This is my first project. It started from wood salvaged from a small tree, walnut I believe, that a neighbor cut down.Just getting used to posting on here so sorry if the pics are weird. The scrap below the box is being used as my stain test It is still a work in progress and eventually will be used as a gift box for jewelry for my wife.Thanks for looking.
Repairing Mom (in laws’s) chair. The old arms were a little weather beaten so I decided to make some new ones.The chair has sentimental value, it was her son who passed away. She had asked me to tighten up the bolts and put on a fresh coat of paint. I’ve taken it a little farther than that and complete disassembled the chair so I can do some repair work. These are the old ones, held together with a loose dowel and pocket screw. The new ones will be mortise and tenon St...
