MDB #3: So many cubes - GULP! ....I mean GLUP..... um - GLUE UP

08-02-2010 06:23 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here This phase of the project took on a different pace. it was all hand tools oriented, and I was able to work on it at nights and at quick sessions as there was little setup involved, and not a whole lot of noise. To start. I took my old drill press table that was just hanging around the shop useless after I upgraded it and screwed a straight piece of cherry left over from my milling process to act ...

Joinery #2: Don't get your drawers in a twist

07-21-2010 03:56 AM by Rob Bois | 3 comments »

I have done videos in the past about how I handle hand cut dovetails for drawers, so for this current project I decided it didn’t make much sense to just highlight the same techniques. Instead, I focused on several challenges I faced with this most recent set of drawers, ranging from some tricky grain to sharpening fatigue. This won’t teach you how to build a drawer, but you might find a few tips you can apply in your shop.

Cross grain gluing and such

06-10-2010 10:01 PM by Richard | 1 comment »

We all heard how one has to be carefull on gluing certain parts together on a project such as cross grain, free floating panels, and so on. When I first started woodworking, I made every mistake possible including certain glue-ups that I wouldn’t do today. My idea back then was to paint the joint with glue and forget about it. But as I look at my earlier projects from 20 years ago I see how ugly my work was, but I am also surprised at how well those cross grain glue-ups are holding...

Cheap Tricks #1: Glue Spreaders

05-31-2010 07:29 PM by clieb91 | 13 comments »

So I know everyone out there has some of their own money saving tips and tricks. I thought I would try to share a few of the ones I use. This idea came to me today while wandering around one of my favorite stores, trying to find items to put in my discount shopping bag. I saw a package of plastic glue spreaders for sale for $3.50 (per 6), I have read of guys using old credit cards and such and I have a few of them in my box but the items I found that seems to work well serves two purposes ...

End grain counter top.

04-26-2010 03:11 PM by paplou | 5 comments »

Has anyone ever made or seen a counter top made like an end grain cutting board. I am thinking of trying it. Counter top would be 34 square feet minus the built in cook top and sink. it will be about 4500 square inchs. i would like to make it in a herring bone pattern with 1 1/2×4 pieces. What glue would i have to use? It would be in oak, cherry, some walnut and maple. I figure it to be 1” thick set on 3/4 inch plywood. Any ideas from you guys would help. Or should...

The Small Stuff

03-20-2010 11:48 AM by David Craig | 7 comments »

There was a book written a few years ago entitled Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. While I am not an advocate of violence, I do sometimes entertain the thoughts of various purgatories for the author. I do understand Richard Carlson’s point about trying to live life stress free and not worry so much about little things, but it is the little things that often make or break us. As Charles Bukowski once wrote - it’s not the large things thatsend a man to themadhouse, death he&...

Polystyrene glue!

02-03-2010 01:53 AM by Mark Edmondson | 21 comments »

Fortunately for us wood workers and tinkerers, one of mankind’s most indestructible substances — polystyrene — is easy to repurpose into glue. And since several people have commented on my end grain end table project asking for the secret recipe to my homemade glue, I’m here to provide. However, I’m going to force you to read this entire thing before I get to the point, so bear with me. I work a lot with polystyrene, partly because it can be found everywhere, but mainly because it...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #5: Dry Fit!

09-17-2009 01:29 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to plane the stock for the shelves yesterday. I glued up a large enough blank for two shelves, then used the fence to cut them parallel. I then used the cross-cut sled to square the other sides. I got to use my Delta new mortiser to make all of the mortises (3 on each side x 4 sides = 12 total). Luckily, they were all 3/8” and had the same offset from the front/back. This meant that with one setup, I could knock them all out. If I had done them with a chisel, ...
