Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #13: Installing the Floor

06-16-2015 08:09 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Overview Floor installation is pretty simple. Considerations include waterproofing, support, and water drainage. Waterproofing I previously fiberglassed the bottom side of the floor with 2.3 ounce fiberglass cloth and two light coats of epoxy. I used 6 ounce cloth for the side you step on with two coats of epoxy also. The top side of the floor will also be painted with flat green paint. Support The span between each rib is about two feet and 1/4” plywood would break wh...

Garage to Work Shop Conversion #8: The Rebuild Begins

12-16-2013 03:22 AM by twoblacklabs | 1 comment »

If you haven’t kept up, take a look at the forum entry ””Woodshop Disaster Today””:http://lumberjocks.com/topics/55735 Taking advantage of the situation to do more work on the shop. In years past, I busted up and hauled away (by hand, one truck load at a time), the cracked and heaved concrete floor. It was so bad, you could not even take a step without either dropping or climbing 6” either way. After it was removed, I spread and compacted 15 tons of crus...

Tuning my tools #1: Planeing chipboard

09-28-2012 01:56 PM by Ben Simms | 4 comments »

The other day my dad and I were laying some Swift-lok flooring in my house and we came to a joint that had significantly raised on one side, it looked like the crappy chip board sub floor had expanded on the edge prior to being laid down and nailed into place. after sinking the nails we sanded a bit and decided that we would need to do something else as I do not own a belt sander (I know, I should own a belt sander) and the joint was still badly raised. i went down to my garage shop and scann...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #12: Today, I renovated my dust collector canister shaker

06-15-2009 01:01 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 21 comments »

I told you what happened to me the other day about my sawdust storm. You can check out my forum topic about this. Whenever I had to operate the cleanup flappers, I had to climb a ladder. It was really awkward. Besides that I could only turn the lever a little over 180 degrees, because it is located in a corner. So I put my thinking cap on, & jerry-rigged a cranking mechanism. I dug around in all of my stash of junk, & found just what I needed. The pulleys, ...

Kitchen island

02-01-2009 11:24 PM by SteveMO | 13 comments »

Recently I’ve been updating my kitchen. Resurfaced the cabinets, built a new top, stone on the wall, new wood floors etc. Since the kids have moved on, I’ve decided to build an island with stools. The top will probably have stone recessed in the center to match the wall treatment. This will also allow us to set hot pans etc. on it. Right now I’m waiting on my new table saw to arrive, so I’ll begin the project as soon as it gets here. I’ll also be running crown m...

Endgrain Floor - Made from scratch #3: Getting things going...

05-26-2008 09:30 AM by Thomas Porter | 19 comments »

NOTE TO THOSE WHO WANT TO DO THIS…Please don’t use regular grout like me. The wood shrinks slightly and is allowed to move because of the urethane adhesive remaining pliable. There’s tiny little cracks where the wood has separated on the outer tiles in the room. It’s not going to weather well, so I’m replacing the grout in the near future. Thank goodness endgrain floors are cheap material cost. :-) Everything else I did was fine, but the grout was an experiment t...

A Beautiful Floor !!

01-14-2007 08:51 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 10 comments »

I want to show everybody how proud I am of the accomplishments of one of my Sons’. He works for a floor installer, & finishing company. He’s there sanding specialist. Especially when it comes to the meticulous areas around stairways, balusters, & radiators. It takes a person with an awful lot of patience, & perseverence. I don’t beleive I have that much patience. He says ”He always enjoys the outcome of his labor” I used to tell my Boy’s as t...
