This week in shop: funny thing

06-23-2017 04:22 AM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

Spent a time this evening finishing up some clamping cauls. Wasn’t I doing that last time? I was. Shop projects move as they will. More to the point, I was determined to follow my “practice with purpose” habit. It’s a new habit, and like most new habits, especially the good ones, it requires concentration and time and concentration. If you don’t remember (and why, REALLY, would you?), last time I wrote about how the clamping cauls I ended up with really see...

How To: #1: Clamping Cauls - Making & Using

01-22-2016 01:12 PM by OSU55 | 9 comments »

Clamping cauls are superior to dowels and biscuits for aligning panel glue ups. No, they don’t align the ends of the boards, but biscuits have too much play to do so, and have too much play to align the board edges. Dowels will align the ends, but you need one every 10-12 inches to get the edges to align, and good luck hammering all your pieces together. Various router bit profiles can align the board edges, provided you set the bit exactly right, but provide no end alignment. Granted, you ha...

Like Qbert says, "@!#?"

01-11-2016 02:33 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Thankfully todays glue up did not inspire a case of shop induced turrets.Like Qbert says, ”@!#?” It is not often I use more than half of my clamps. Years back I would use them all up in a day and be left needing more. Today I used up a bit more than half and I was hoping to get to more, but time ran out. I have the bench legs and top slabs glued up. The split is milled and has a bit more before it will get glued up too. To start the day out I made a set of cauls from a 2...

Extremely Average #39: Creating the Cauls

02-10-2010 05:05 AM by Ecocandle | 17 comments »

In Vol 28, No. 164, on page 6 of Woodsmith magazine is the article which describes the Adjustable Panels Cauls. It was sent in by George Johnson of Canton Oklahoma. They give the dimensions and I followed them somewhat closely. I visited my local Home Depot to buy the goodies I would need to make my cauls. I purchased (4) seven feet long, 1×2, in hard maple. I like hard maple. I also purchased (4) 36 inches long ½ x 3 inch pieces of Oak. I only needed one piece of the oak, but...

Extremely Average #38: Henry Wood Detective Agency: Tommy 'The Knife'

Henry took a couple of pictures of the cauls. He told Luna that he needed to head into his office and made her promise not to leave the house. She said she would read a book. Henry took the paper with him, he turned on the shower, and only then did he read the ‘Big News’ The headline read ‘Missing’. An accountant with the prominent Manhattan law firm of Smith, Havershome and Blickstein is missing, and the Police commissioner Jonathan O’Rourke has indicated that the entire departm...

Extremely Average #37: Henry Wood Detective Agency: Bad News

02-08-2010 06:01 AM by Ecocandle | 6 comments »

The note simply said, “Went to the store for bacon, eggs, juice, and bread.” Luna wiped the sleep out of her eyes and looked around. The house was small but cozy. She hadn’t paid much attention the night before; she was too overwhelmed. On one wall was half a dozen photos of Washington DC. They were nicely framed and were quite nice. The other walls were mostly covered by book shelves. She ran her finger along the spines and read some of the titles, “Candide”, “Father’s and Childre...
