Wood Thoughts #9: Oceans and Oceans of Glue, But Still Don’t Eat It

58 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 3 comments »

Please Consider Checking Out My Website: MonkWerks.org Some people may have thought that the glue blog title I mentioned in Clamps, Clamps, and More Clamps!!! was made up. And yes it was, but such a good title should not go to waste – he’s quite the recycling monk, mostly other people’s ideas. So I took it upon my self to patent, trademark, copyright, and claim it as my own. Let’s see those royalty checks just start rolling in – you do remember that you&...

Woodworking For Therapy #9: This Can Be Nerve Racking!

182 days ago by Steve Kreins | 8 comments »

Well, my chemo is starting to kick me in places I didn’t know I had. I went two days without making any saw dust and that was worse than the side effects of the drugs. Yesterday I couldn’t stand it any longer so I went out to my cave and used my router table for the first time. I made a coat rack for inside the back door where coats usually end up on the sofa. It seemed like a good excuse to do some woodworking to me, even if my wife was yelling at me for not being in bed. It didn...

Entertainment Center #1: First Big Project

475 days ago by cjwelch | 1 comment »

I started this project for a friend a few months ago and will be putting the finishing touches on soon. It is a plywood box with pine face frame. I used my Kreg Jig for all the joints. This is the largest project I have tackled to date and has been a great learning experience. The plan has changed from the original drawings as we learned along the way. My wife might be a little upset that I have spent at least four times the cost of materials in new tools (and then some). I tell her it is an ...

Beginner Questionaire for JN1C3 #1: First ??? "Glue Lines"

711 days ago by Jason™ | 12 comments »

Here goes my first of many and I do mean many….. Glue Lines It seems to be hard for me to get my glue lines to disappear. I sand and sand trying to get them to go away but can’t seem to eliminate them. The mallet I made, on the top where I put in my splines it looked great at first but then the next day I came to see my dried glue item. They are very faint but can still be seen until I put few coats polyurethane. I noticed some black marks also but this may be from the ch...

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

724 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...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #15: Jigs for glue up

736 days ago by sras | 8 comments »

This last weekend was spent setting up the process for assembly and glue up. I had not expected I would spend this much time coming up with a glue up solution. Still, this was a fun puzzle to solve. The first step was to remove the masking tape. It took a while to peel of tape from all 244 tenons! One concern I had with clamping pre-finished parts was damaging the finish. In past times I have had the texture of any padding end up imprinting into the finish. I decided to use a smooth...
