Melamine Part 2: Apply Edge Banding

547 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 16 comments »

I just finished up the video for applying edge banding to melamine. This video follows Part 1 on how to get clean cuts in melamine, which can be quite a challenge without the right blade and techniques. Once the melamine is cut, often it will need to have edge banding applied. So I cover this topic in Part 2. I could have made a 2 minute video that shows me applying a piece with an iron and trimming the excess, but that can leave a person with a lot of questions. In these videos, you no...

For You Edge Banders, (edge banding your ply)

724 days ago by Blackie_ | 5 comments »

Being an RC airplane modelist I have accuired tools that are used for this hobby that can also be very well suited for woodworking. If you are using a tipical house hold iron for you banding there’s a better tool for this and it doesn’t take up near the room that a house hold iron does. I use it when I do banding and it can be purchased at any local hobby store that sells RC related stuff It's called Hanger 9 Sealing Iron

Twin-Sized Bed With Pull-Out Desk, Closet, and Dresser #4: The desk unit

1645 days ago by gbarteck | 3 comments »

While all of the subassemblies of the second bed are the same as the first, I needed to build the desk unit and dresser units as “mirror images” of how they were built on the first bed, due to how the bed would be situated in the bedroom. Since the dresser unit is at the “head” end of the bed, and the desk must be oriented so that the chair goes on the same side of the desktop as the dresser (a change from the first bed design… see entry #2 in this series), th...

Wall Hung Console #10: Adding the Purpleheart

1743 days ago by captkerk | 3 comments »

I was able to get the purpleheart inlay done on the end brackets. To make the curved purpleheart pieces, I used the template for the end brackets to trace a line on a piece of purpleheart then cut it out on the band saw. After sanding to the line on the disc sander, I traced a line 5/16” from the edge and cut that out on the band saw. I then attached the piece with the inside curve to the movable fence on my drum sanding jig so the curved strip could pass by the sander with a l...

001: maple lazy susan #1: everything up to, but not including the finishing work

1985 days ago by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

This is a very simple one. I was hired by our office manager to slap together a lazy susan in maple, to match the cabinets at work in the kitchen. It’s going to hold coffee cans, filters, spoons, and other coffee-time trappings. It can’t get much simpler. I biscuit joined 5 17” lengths of jointed 1×4 maple from the same 8’ plank, making a roughly 17” square, cut out a 16”+ circle, sanded it up and routed the edge to clean it up to a more perfect 16&...
