Building a Moving Fillister Plane #2: Boxing, Depth Stop, Fence and even a nicker

06-16-2014 01:30 AM by Wally331 | 7 comments »

Pics will be in a few minutes… Where exactly did I leave off last time…ahh the main body is essentially done, and now all the adjustment features are all that’s left. Boxing The one weakness of cherry for planes is that it’s just a little bit soft. Not much softer then beech, but enough that a harder sole will help over the years. Especially on a fillister or rabbet plane where almost all of the wear is on a corner. I chose bubinga to box it with, because its ...

Chess pieces and board #9: Finishing out the Chess Board

06-05-2014 01:41 AM by Luke | 3 comments »

Here’s a couple more pics of the progress I’ve made. I glued some veneer around the edges to fill in the gap between the fancy stuff and the edge where the board will transition into the sides. Then it was onto a lot of sanding. What I hadn’t expected was the dust from the Rosewood to stain the maple while sanding. So I sanded it down as good as I could without going through the veneer and then used a cabinet scraper to finish it off. I think it came out really nice and I ca...

Advice needed on regluing laminate on kitchen countertop

02-11-2014 07:23 AM by lightweightladylefty | 9 comments »

I would have posted this as a forum topic but couldn’t find a category where I thought it would fit. Anyway . . . On one side of the miter of our kitchen countertop, about a 4-inch length of the laminate has lifted from the substrate. I attempted to fix it by putting laminate adhesive on a palette knife and spreading it inside on both laminate and substrate, allowing it to dry, and then pressing it down. That was a couple of months ago and it has lifted again. I don’t want ...

My First Workbench #33: Leg Vise Chop Redux

08-23-2013 09:44 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Okay, so if you follow this blog, you’ll know that last year I built a leg vice and attached it to the workbench I built over the summer. The chop on this vice was simply two pieces of 3/4” pine, about 6” wide, glued together and shaped (with some crude tools I had at the time and zero knowledge of what I was doing). Then I carved my initials and the year of it’s construction (2012) into it and made a nice little handle out of poplar. Well, it works. ThatR...

Getting Clean Cuts in Melamine

05-07-2012 08:50 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 39 comments »

Melamine is notorious for chipping out when cutting. In this video I share my tools and techniques for creating clean cuts on both sides of melamine. The blade I use in the video is a Freud LU97R010. It makes the cut on the back side as clean as on the top side. The images of the cuts in the video are of the backside of the material where chip-out tends to occur. (I did not make that clear in the video.) In Part II I will show you how to apply edge banding. This is not just instr...

Long Boards

03-24-2012 03:16 PM by Ehren | 5 comments »

Let me start by saying, I do not skate board. I want to make sure I am not associated with skate boarders and as a disclaimer, I didn’t know much about them. My brothers in law wanted to get into long boarding. I decided to tackle the challenge of making a pair of boards. I haven’t done anything like this build before. I learned a lot and if there are any pointers you may have please let me know. I played with the idea of inlaying fiberglass but after some failed testin...

Building My Roubo Bench #7: Making the Stretchers

02-12-2012 10:18 PM by Andy Panko | 6 comments »

I wanted to make the bench’s stretchers as proportionately beefy as the top and legs. Since my legs are 5” square, I figured it would work well, and look good, to make the stretchers about 3 1/2” high, and about 2 1/2” thick. So I had to AGAIN joint, plane, glue, clamp and wait some more. I’ve been getting kind of bored of doing glue-ups, so I’m glad this was the last laminating I’ll have to do on this project. I want to integrate 3/4” thick...

Building My Roubo Bench #5: Finishing the Top

02-12-2012 03:37 AM by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

I had previously finished laminating the two halves that would make up the top. I made two 12” wide sections, ran each through the planer to smooth and true up the tops and bottoms, and ran each mating edge across the jointer. And as I wrote in the previous blog entry, one of the halves already has the finished wagon vise built into it. The two halves were now all done and ready to be glued. It was tricky maneuvering the two parts in the final glue up, as each section was heav...

A Weapon For Emma!

07-30-2011 09:10 PM by lew | 23 comments »

And what a weapon it is!!Extremely well made, heavy- 12.5 ounces (without the handle), sharp, and the blade is mounted on the axle so there is absolutely no “wobble”. No pizza stands a chance against this mighty duo!— Emma wanted something to match her stunning outfit so a laminated blank of cherry, maple and walnut was glued up.— After mounting in the lathe, a hole is drilled to accept the threaded insert. As per the instructions, this is a 15/32” brad point bit. The hole i...
