Wood Glue Tests and Information #1: EIGHT Wood Glues TESTED with Unexpected Results

01-11-2018 08:41 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

View on YouTube I started wondering about wood glue recently and the more I thought about it, the more I thought that I should do my own set of tests. I am interested in Working Time, how well different glues will work with veneer, and how well they will work with bent laminations. I did not test for strength because Fine Woodworking did a great article on glue strength and their results were that most all glues are plenty strong enough. I also limited this to only PVA glues. I still ...

Road Trip Highlights, NEW Twin Screw Vise, David Marks Class, and more...

12-28-2017 07:54 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

<div>Get your own valid XHTML YouTube embed code</div> I drove from Minneapolis to Santa Rosa, CA to take a class with David Marks and it was great! I also got a sneak peak at a brand new Twin Screw Vise design by Andy Klein. I think this one will actually make it to market, and hopefully it will be soon! Other highlights from my 5000 mile road trip. Charlie

Epoxy Lids and Why I Hate Them

So, I like to rant about user experience and design issues, and this is something that really bugs me. Yes, it’s minor, and it’s easily solved with a sharpie, but it shouldn’t have to be! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQySdXv49CM

Fixing Warp in Plywood

03-26-2017 04:36 PM by ConrailDon | 2 comments »

Hi Everyone, this is my first post. I hope to tap a good knowledge base here.I am trying to build some table leafs (hope i used the correct word). They need to be 1.075 thick. My thought was to glue up some 3/4 birch Ply with some 1/4”. I struggled to find some really flat 3/4” stock, so I glued up the first panel on my workbench. My workbench is 3/4” particle board and very flat. Anyway the 3/4” stock had about a 1/16” bow in a 4 foot length. I glued this up...

Drying With a Microwave #2: Like a Phoenix from the ashes.

02-26-2016 12:28 AM by Druid | 11 comments »

PART 2After ABC’s “friend” quickly left, ABC started over again by using another piece of cedar. He re-drew the pattern, and started carving the bowl all over again. So, by the time that I arrived, ABC had completely re-carved his project, sanded it, and had applied 2 coats of stain as shown here. We reviewed this carving, and I explained that his techniques were excellent for a first carving project. He has followed the grain of the wood very well, and there are no signs of any problems w...

Drying With a Microwave #1: Part 1 - A bit of a warning.

02-26-2016 12:12 AM by Druid | 9 comments »

I have noticed several enquiries and comments on Lumberjocks regarding the use of a microwave oven for the purpose of drying green wood, so I want to pass along a description of a recent event that happened to someone I know. For this posting, I will refer to this person as “ABC” (A Bowl Carver), and I will let you assume that ABC is male. As a bit of background, ABC was injured in an automobile accident, and as part of his rehabilitation process I am currently teaching him how to carve. S...

Oak Storage Bench #5: The Path to Glue-Up

02-20-2016 06:47 AM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

A lot has to happen between cutting the joinery and gluing the panels. I had to fine tune many of the joints, repair some mistakes, and make some finishing cuts to the legs and arms of the bench. Once that was all done, I could glue up the panels. It is nerve-wracking because you only get one shot. Needless to say I did about 100 dry-fits just to be absolutely certain everything would go together properly. The glue-up went as planned without any hiccups. I had to sand most of the joints...

15 Ft Power-Drifter Fishing Boat, "Tiger Lily" #2: Change of Plans and Doing a Jig

01-18-2016 04:22 PM by Tomato | 5 comments »

Entry on 1/18/2016: Watching some Disney this weekend I have come up with a name. She will be called, “Tiger Lily”! After getting some quotes from the lumber yard it occurred to me that, since I can’t get 4×10’s, I will have to scarf more than one joint to get the planking and board lengths for the 16.5 footer. This will add significant extra cost with a lot of waste. I decided to go to the 15’ version and, even though I’m losing about two feet o...
