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...

Well, I was getting ready to assemble a 16×20 frame, when I realized that the woman who ordered it needed to give input on the finish. While inspecting it, a piece just fell off with the sligtest tough from my finger. I didn’t think too much about it and threw it somewhere. After showing my wife, her first response was, what happened there? Well, I thought it made it look more rustic, but apparently too rustic because that was the first response of the woman I was selling...
The other day I was home for spring break from school and I was standing in my bedroom doorway talking to my Mom. While I was standing there I was playing with the molding around the door frame (The bottom part was all ready broken and only held on by one nail) and of course it decides to break completely of at that nail. So naturally I propped it up against the door frame. Mom said I dont think that will cut it lol. So I said I got this (b/c Im a LJ) I garbed my bottle of wood glue off my bo...
So I have been planning where or how the electrical will be coming into the shop or can. In case you are wondering the can is made of 22 mm steel. I was not sure if my punch set was going to be able to pull the hole because it said it could be used up to 10 gauge steel.So here is what I used to pull the hole, of course I drilled a pilot hole first.Yes it is a cheap piece of crap. But I do not pull a lot of holes in metal and it served the purpose. I have owned this thing for about 8 years, an...
In this final section of the Wine Cork Display Tutorials I will show you how I cut and glue in the miter keys. Larger Picture Version LJ Project of Finished Displays Here you can see my miter key jig. Since I cut so many miter keys for the wine cork displays and the boxes I make, I decided that a nice, large, dedicated jig would save me a lot of time. It works really well, I’ve used the heck out it. The first thing I do is figure out how far from the edge I want my keys to...
In this tutorial, I’ll show how I glue and assembly my wine cork displays. If you’re interested in a version with larger pictures, follow the link below: Bigger Picture Version Now that I’ve got my glass, I can begin the glue-up. However, I suggest sanding the inside first, one less thing to deal with later. I begin by laying my pieces down on my table with the inside facing down and the front facing away from me. I use a piece of MDF to make sure the front edges...
I had several requests to make more of my hexagonal tumbling blocks coaster. they are pretty streightworward to make other than the glue up procedure. the parts slide, crawl, jump and move…. so, i decided to make a jig: to make it, you will need:base board (mdf or plywood, 3/4” works best)piece of mdf, slightly wider than your hexagon1 bolt start by gluing the offcuts from cutting the parts of the hexagon so they make the “press” from both sides.make sure you ...
I found another day off, so I immediately ran out into the shop before I could get distracted. I was able to finish the joinery on the base ends. As with everything else in life, the relative ease of the BeadLock Pro has disadvantages in repeatable accuracy. I don’t know how or why, but I do eight mortises and they only come out within 1/16” of each other. This has caused a 1/8” difference between the mortises, pretty much ruining my reveal on the spindles. I’ll f...
