Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #19: Upholstering the Layout Board

08-23-2015 01:41 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Overview I’ve had my layout board dry assembled for quite some time, but put it on pause during construction of the second and third layout boats. Those boats are nearing completion (about to fiberglass the decks), so we needed to keep prototyping the fitting out of my boat. The two major steps of upholstering the layout board are fastening the foam and fitting the cover. Fastening the Foam I used five layers of foam while building up the ergonomic shape of the layout b...

Replace foam seal on G0548Z Dust Collector

03-14-2015 06:01 PM by Core2 | 0 comments »

I bought the dust collector used over the summer. The only thing needing my attention on it was the foam seal that the bag seals on. It was highly compressed and no longer in its original position. I Scrapped it all off and replaced it with some door seal foam tape I got at the big box store. Before: You can see the dust patterns showing where it leaks During: After: Now it seals like it should. No leaks. I even had enough tape left over to seal around my table saw door. I ...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #17: Seat Upholstery

10-31-2012 04:39 AM by sras | 11 comments »

Confession – I finished the upholstery several weeks ago but have not gotten the blog updated until now. Oh well, everything else about this project has been on its own pace so there is no sense in changing now;) Here we go. The next step is to cut seat blanks. I used a sheet of good quality 3/8 plywood. I printed out a full size pattern. Cut it out on the bandsaw. Sanded it smooth. I then used the first cutout as a pattern for the other 5 seat blanks. ...

DragonFly Harp #4: 1/4/2011 Completed Model

01-04-2011 07:05 PM by Donna Menke | 14 comments »

Here is a good example of just how difficult joinery is with foam. Lots of slop and instant gratification- not at all like wood. Wonder if one can play a foam harp- nah.The foam model has been assembled for the first time- with toothpicks, tape, and chewing gum (just kidding about the gum). I tried to glue some parts with Titebond, but it never dried and didn’t stick well. I’ve decided to return to the original plan to end the bottom of the pillar outside of the sound box. Hope it...

Donna's DragonFly Harp Project

12-29-2010 02:18 AM by Donna Menke | 13 comments »

Hi Guys-I’m starting to make another harp and I thought some of you would be interested in seeing how it goes- as it goes.Why am I designing my own harp? I wanted to see if I could modify the Limerickplans I used for the Rainbow harp I made in 2007. I wanted the soundbox smaller,and I wanted it to be self-supporting and as tall as the Heartland DreamWeaverthat I have and like. I took aspects of lots of different harps and put them alltogether and this is what I came up with. I also want...
