In the wood shop today #19: Pouring and polishing an epoxy bar top counter

01-28-2013 02:52 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on a custom home bar built from Bubinga and Walnut using solid and veneered wood. The counters will be protected from water using System Three Mirrorcoat a 2 part 2:1 epoxy finish that self levels and cures crystal clear. I had to give the counter a light sand and through 400 to 4000 then used a 3 step polishing process to bring the counter back to a beautiful gloss shine.

My Hand Planes- Meet the Boys #1: Stanley No.4 1/2 Bench plane with shop-made Tote.

07-10-2012 08:35 PM by Johnnyblot | 13 comments »

This is a Stanley no.4 1/2 that I built up from parts. The Tote is a sandwich of 3 pieces of bubinga, in a ‘Z’ configuration glued to 2 acrylic tote profiles with maple cheeks.my original idea was to use brass sheet but I didn’t have any to hand so I used clear acrylic sheet [from a car registration plate]. Also I fitted a Quangsheng Blade & Chipbreaker assembley. The body was first stripped and repainted and the surfaces reground.The mouth needed to ope...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

06-12-2014 10:46 PM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Build a Steam Box

07-27-2013 11:41 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #2: Boxing, Depth Stop, Fence and even a nicker

06-16-2014 01:30 AM by Wally331 | 8 comments »

Pics will be in a few minutes… Where exactly did I leave off last time…ahh the main body is essentially done, and now all the adjustment features are all that’s left. Boxing The one weakness of cherry for planes is that it’s just a little bit soft. Not much softer then beech, but enough that a harder sole will help over the years. Especially on a fillister or rabbet plane where almost all of the wear is on a corner. I chose bubinga to box it with, because its ...

Bubinga Trestle Table #1: Massive Board and Table Top

07-22-2010 07:35 PM by DesertWoodGuy | 5 comments »

This trestle table design is in a Modern Art Nouveau style and the table top started with a board that can only be described as MASSIVE. With an average width of 39 inches across and an impressive 15 feet long, the 2” thick board featured two live edges (flitch or boule sawn) and not a single straight grain in the whole big board. I purchased this big board for a little over $1,000 plus another $145 for freight from Gilmer Woods. That might seem a bit much for some, but as this was a we...
