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...

Cyanoacrylate wood finish?

07-24-2009 05:10 PM by FrankLad | 23 comments »

I thought “What if I coated the whole ring in cyanoacrylate finish?” ...and I tried it. The rings have since been through regular everyday wear including dishwashings, handwashings and showers. END RESULT: This finish is holding up better than both Waterlox and Arm-R-Seal. And, in my opinion, it actually looks better. CAVEATS: Obviously, this would be difficult to do on anything but very small woodworking projects. It’s just right for these wooden rings, but ...

Machinist Toolcart #9: Half Finished and Drawers Part II

08-17-2011 06:08 AM 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...

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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #589: Wood Glue Review

01-21-2012 04:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

I am really pleased with all the responses that I received yesterday on glues. There are so many different types of glue out there, that one can go crazy just trying to figure out which one is the best for the job at hand. Before I begin, I want to say that I am not affiliated with any of these companies that I will be mentioning. This was a completely informal poll that I took because I wanted to see what products that you feel are tried and true for your different gluing needs. As woo...

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

11-09-2011 10:13 PM 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...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #3: Assembly

12-02-2010 04:07 AM by FaTToaD | 1 comment »

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...
