After cleaning the bark, the next task at hand was to fill the large crack in the top and the slab for the legs with epoxy, I used blue masking tape to cover the openings on the underside and the sides of both pices of walnut and placed them both over plastic/paper drop cloths from the depot. Their cheap and protect my benches and floor. I used System 3 mirror coat two-part epoxy, mixed according to the instructions using some cheap plastic mixing cups from an autobody supply house.

For you Epoxy users, here's a great source you won't find in HD or Lowes.

For those of you that use Epoxy for your woodworking, Hobby Town USA has several variations of timed setting Epoxy along with the mixing bowls and brushes. They have 6 min, 15 min, 30min and 45 min these are two part bottles that come in 6 oz and 9oz bottles. I have two local stores in the city I’m in so I’ve not purchased on line, seems as though the website you have to enter a mile and your zipcode in order to pull up a store before purchase once you’ve add the prod...

Outdoor Bench #1: Jatoba Wood-based Outdoor Bench - FW May/June 2008

628 days ago by MJCD | 4 comments »

I’m starting this blog as a prelude to a Project posting – the project is a work-in-progress Outdoor Bench, based on the Fine Woodworking (FW) May/June 2008 article. I have acquired the plans from Fine Woodworking, and am now in the ‘build’ mode. The primary purpose here is to detail for interested Forum members, the different woodworking that arises from 1) an Exotic wood – Jatoba; 2) an Outdoor vs. Indoor project;, and 3) some trials and tribulations associa...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #16: Assembling 6 stools with pre-finished parts

631 days ago by sras | 10 comments »

After I got the parts all finished, I was really excited to do a dry fit and see how everything looked. I didn’t even bother to change into any shop clothes! As you can see, tongue position is important when dry fitting pre-finished parts. Before I actually glued up an assembly, I dry fit the stool. The corner blocks are then set in place. The tenons on the corner blocks needed a little fitting to get them into position. Pilot holes for the screws were drilled and then the sto...

Exterior Adhesives for Outdoor Bench

633 days ago by MJCD | 6 comments »

Once again I find myself asking for comments and guidance from the Forum … I’ve started a Jatoba wood, outdoor bench – based on a Fine Woodworking design. In this project plan, West System’s Epoxy is recommended, and I’ve heard every conceivable praise for their products during my extensive review. However, in a FW article, Titebond III (TB3) was their choice for exterior wood projects (not for Aluminum boats and other repair work). The TB3 is much less exp...

"Through Lay" #6: Final entry of "My Epoxy Experiment"

790 days ago by SisQMark | 4 comments »

First let me apologize for not posting yesterday. I had a few thing come up & couldn’t get around to posting. Anyway here is the final post of this series before I post It as a completed project. I finished putting on the last coat of side two, with some added decorative glitter. It turned out pretty good. The last coat of epoxy on side two. I sanded side one again to remove some of the epoxy that seams to always run underneath after you pour. I used 400 grit to smooth all...

"Through Lay" #5: My Epoxy Experiment

792 days ago by SisQMark | 6 comments »

Well guys, as promised, here is side 1 of the finished “Epoxy Experiment” project I’ve been working on. After fixing the antennas & some sanding, this is the finished first side of my project. I added some spots of green & blue glitter mixed with epoxy to give it a little extra color. Note: You have to keep a close eye on it at first after pouring the epoxy, it is on the runny side. Keep an eye out for drips & wipe them off the bottom, remember this is going to b...

"Through Lay" #4: Epoxy Experiment

793 days ago by SisQMark | 13 comments »

Hello again, As I mentioned in my last post, when I got the next coat of epoxy put on I would post it, so here it is. This will be short, I promise. This side was still missing the glitter from when I first poured the epoxy because it sank to the bottom. So, I let it dry and applied another coat of epoxy mixed with glitter so it would match. Tomorrow I will coat this whole side with epoxy to include the edges. It should give the glitter some depth and a nice flood coat will finish bringing ou...
