Adventures in Lutherie #12: A few shots from my day

06-13-2017 09:04 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I’ve been going through the ‘bone pile’ in the shop, looking for specimens that I think I have the ability to repair. The best way to learn is to do, and since these were actually already in the scrap box, how could I possibly goof anything up? My boss once said to me that if I goof something up, we’ll just take it apart and fix it. These first two shots are of a 3/4 violin that had a missing corner on the upper left C bout. The top of violins is spruce, IE the same...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #7: Glue up and test fit.

07-28-2016 08:11 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 1 comment »

Yesterday and today were big days. Our shop welder made some steel plates and tapped & died some holes to receive the 1/2” all thread. I mortised out an area for them to go on the bottom of the top main runner. Then I glued the main runners together and let them cook over night. Today I put everything together and test fit the cannon in the carriage. Fit like a glove! I did have to notch out the elevation plate so it would sit lower. I also cut down the elevation wedge to make the c...

biscuits VS mortise and tenon

02-29-2016 05:11 PM by needshave | 3 comments »

I have never been a real believer in the use of biscuits in the glue up of large table tops or wider sections in general. Especially where end grain and long grain must be glued together. However, I have never used them either. I’m very old school and have always defaulted to Mortise and tenon and have often pinned those joints with dowels. It strong, its reliable, if time and proper procedures are used to make the joints properly. That’s the downfall this construction method i...

Shop Remodel #33: Four Ended Candle

01-13-2016 01:38 AM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Wow what a day, I have been packing things in lately, I think my candle has four ends. So today I got the bench top surfaced to thickness and cut to length, I glued up the split rail, glued up the candlesticks that I have to do, I helped with some cnc work for the carving side of the shop and helped with a prototype cane head. Then started on video #2 “The Tool Cabinet”. I have just about finished a sketchup design I have to do and have the blue prints in to be printed off. I am s...

Like Qbert says, "@!#?"

01-11-2016 02:33 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Thankfully todays glue up did not inspire a case of shop induced turrets.Like Qbert says, ”@!#?” It is not often I use more than half of my clamps. Years back I would use them all up in a day and be left needing more. Today I used up a bit more than half and I was hoping to get to more, but time ran out. I have the bench legs and top slabs glued up. The split is milled and has a bit more before it will get glued up too. To start the day out I made a set of cauls from a 2...

Kitchen table Build #2: day 1

06-09-2015 04:26 AM by Woodpecker23 | 0 comments »

So I started this entry this morning before I went out to the Shop to start this build I am so excited to do. Right as I was about to walk out the door go figure my wonderful daughter woke up and were begging for bacon and eggs… so the start had to hold of a little bit for the little princess’s. I did finally get out to the shop and here is what was accomplished today (definitely not as much as I had hope but a start non the less) I started with just some basi...

Quick but important glue up - Coffee table top

03-19-2015 01:19 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 0 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwoV3-yY_5I&lc=z12ofnuq5srvzjxyg04cfbabzw2edr0gir00k Learn something comment below, something to add comment below. Glue ups, in woodworking we all do them, almost the most basic yet important step in all the projects we build. Watch as I glue up some thick Canadian Walnut for a coffee table in progress.
