Laminating Wood #1: Laminating Wood, Part 1 - laminating curved parts in wood

120 days ago by GnarlyErik | 11 comments »

Laminating Wood The word ‘laminate’ comes from the Latin ‘lamina’ meaning ‘thin slice, plate, leaf or layer’ which is pretty close to our modern meaning. Funny how that often works, eh? During my career I have learned a fair amount about laminating wood. There are surely others out there who know far more about specific sorts of laminating than me and I do not pretend to know it all, but am happy to share what I have learned. There are several reasons for laminating or glueing separa...

In the wood shop today #26: Pulling off a bent lamination from the form, for a metal and walnut table base

177 days ago by Canadian Woodworks | 3 comments »

Hi everyone, Have not posted here in a little while, been keeping busy in the wood shop! I’ve finally put together another video for my your tube channel. I’ve been working on a dining table base made with steel and some bent laminated Walnut. Have a look here as I pull the newly formed leg piece off of the mold and show you exactly how the table base will look once completed. Thanks hope you like it.Paul

Workbench #3: The Build - Top

483 days ago by Marty5965 | 2 comments »

So I began the build with the top, figuring that I could use it to build the base. The wife bought me a Vika for Christmas so it is my temporary work bench (along with my trusty, old, Workmate and saw horses).As you may have seen in my earlier entry, the top was to consist of two, 8 piece laminations. I face planed them with my #7 to ensure good glue up and glued them at the same time as two separate chunks. Here was my first screw-up (should have planed them four square). This was clos...

Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

647 days ago by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

Steam Bending #3: Steam Bending Trout Fishing Nets: Shaping and Finishing

649 days ago by Retsof | 2 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted my last update on this project and I’ve made a lot of progress. Once I got the basic shaping and sanding done, I had to stop until I found the net bags that I wanted to use on the frames. As of this week, I have everything I need to finish the nets, so here are some more photos to show you what I’ve done so far: Here is net #2 after bending, but before glue up. This photo gives a good look at how I pegged my circles to the melamine ba...

Workbench #6: Skirts & Vises

692 days ago by twobyfour16 | 3 comments »

So, the top needed skirts, obviously, so time to laminate again. This time, I used 3 pieces of 1×8 black walnut. This gave me a skirt that is 2 1/4” thick, and 6 3/4” wide – after cleaning up the edges. I glued up enough blanks for the front skirt, two end skirts, and chops for both vises. I did not get very many pictures of this process, as I had plenty of lamination pics earlier….I will say that these skirts were BEEFY! And heavy. So, now I had to figure...

Mission Style Bed #1: Bed Posts Pt. 1

860 days ago by Fraser Gandy | 9 comments »

So, I’ve started the bed and its been going pretty good so far.

The wood im using for the this project is Poplar, its easy enough to work with, it stains up beautifully, and was readily available and on the lower end of the price market. Onto the woodworkin...

Workbench #12: Laminating the Top

909 days ago by HungryTermite | 8 comments »

The time has come to start making this thing look like a bench. In order to make the short stretchers I need to know what the final width of the bench is going to be. I am mostly playing the length, width, and thickness of the top by ear since I didn’t know how much I was going to have to remove from the construction grade wood I used. I purchased the pieces for the top 1 year ago so they have had quite a bit of time to dry out as well as bend and twist and warp. There are also some...

Next Generation Cheese boards... #4: The third cut is the weirdest....

994 days ago by degoose | 17 comments »

Squared off the top…. here is the third cut…Now rotate every other piece… And line up the pieces… A quick border… just a few offcuts to frame the design… The piece on the right is cut parallel and moved over to the other end for the glue up… this make both ends fit the clamps better.. That was easy hey???
