Filling a crack in Alder

01-05-2011 06:49 PM by BigD1 | 7 comments »

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.

Balanced Work Bench #4: it's starting to look like something

08-23-2013 01:04 AM by Jeremiah | 1 comment »

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...

Lee and Shelley's Wet Bar #4: Phase III Doors and Drawer Fronts

03-31-2014 07:16 PM by MT_Stringer | 5 comments »

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. ...

Garage Re-Do #17: Super Sucker Cleanup

03-08-2009 06:16 AM by MyOldGarage | 1 comment »

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...

01-12-2013 08:13 PM by shelly_b | 4 comments »

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. It came with a base for the table and a ...

Repairing Moms Chair #1: New arms for an Old Chair

02-12-2010 11:30 PM by RickRogers7 | 1 comment »

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...
