Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

976 days ago by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...

Work In Progress #3: Canasta #3

977 days ago by Byron | 2 comments »

There are many parts of this project I do not want to discuss, mostly because they all involve mistakes. With this project I unfortunately made many stupid errors regarding dimensions and process of operations, but in ways that are rudimentary to woodworking. I tried to recover and hide these though thinking about the saying that being a good woodworker is not about making no mistakes, its about how well you can fix the mistakes you make. One of these mistakes came from a lack of room in...

Some Epoxy Handling Tips #1: Don't get any on you !

988 days ago by shipwright | 22 comments »

The first rule I try to follow when using epoxies is “Don’t get any on you !” and the second one is “Don’t get any on your handles !” Basically for more reasons than I need to get into here no one wants to get it on them. The question seems to be how to avoid it. I’ve used A LOT of epoxy over the years for everything from gluing hulls together to making wooden fuel tanks, water tanks and even a bathtub and I’ve developed a number of procedure...

All glued up, now what?

1002 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

Well today I got out to the shop for about an hour this morning. Not much time, but it’s what I needed to get done what needed to get done. I’ve got three things that I cut up, and also got glued. First up is of course a new wine bottle holder design. It is a mix of purpleheart and oak. I wish I had some different woods to mix, but I’m using what I got. I’ve also cut and glue up a votive candle holder. It’s also made from purpleheart and oak. I know what I want i...

Question on adhesives

1020 days ago by Brian Havens | 3 comments »

Two questions for the woodworkers who are also chemists: I have some thick CA glue, so thick that I can no longer use it. Now I know that I can add acetone as a thinner to normal thick CA glue to make thin/thinner CA glue, but can I also add acetone to the thickened thick CA glue to reconstitute it? I have already tried this and have used the results on some jigs, but my concern is more whether this reconstituted CA glue will have its full strength, such that is is suitable for real proj...

Machinist Toolcart #9: Half Finished and Drawers Part II

1073 days ago by PurpLev | 9 comments »

This project is half finished – Literally I mean. I figured since I’ll be working on the drawers, and the toolcart is in the basement it’ll get dirty, and oily finger marks might penetrate the wood and no sanding in the world will take those out, so I decided to finish the cabinet and protect it from the ‘elements’ around…. and boy did I get struck out by one of those elements… but more about that later. And so I gave the cabinet a good sanding wit...

Machinist Toolcart #4: Gluing up the Carcass

1129 days ago by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Had another quick chance for some shop time and used that to glue together the fitted carcass. I didn’t want to deal with the glueup the day before (after fitting the dividers) as I knew I would need a peace of mind and ample time to do the glueup properly and not rush through it. And so, I cleared the workbench from all the ‘things’ that always seem to end up on it (how is that always happening?!?) to have use of it’s full length (barely enough) and laid down the c...

CA Glue - Did I not take Chemistry?

1134 days ago by Transition | 4 comments »

I also posted this in the Safety forum: •I often use my bare fingers around CA and will get it on my hands. This usually isn’t a big deal, however I recently let a good deal of it build up rapidly, and got a nice little burn. The burn was small, but the heat generated by the curing CA glue was very significant and extremely painful. I believe the heat caused the burn, and not a chemical reaction with my skin. The MSDS for CA glue also warns against using cotton gloves, as apparently CA wil...
