Shop Stool #2 (and curve soled plane)

47 days ago by kaerlighedsbamsen | 6 comments »

This is a blog on creating this project. After making my Shop stool I have gotten a lot of interest and questions like “can you make me one as well?” and “is it possible to make it from a light wood?” Inspired from several people here that talk about making money on their woodwork I thought it would be usefull to make another stool experimenting with methods to potentially make it more production friendly. Other than that i set up 3 goals:- It should be made from...

Book rack #1: Getting the shape right

311 days ago by kaerlighedsbamsen | 10 comments »

(This is my first attempt on a blog entry. English is my 2. language so bear over with me on spelling errors, funny language and all that.) This is a blog describing how i made this projeckt For a long time i´ve had this idea of making a rack for my cook books in the kitchen. They are just collecting dust on the shelf and not really getting the attension they deserve. Now i do see a lot of people using “plate racks” (dont know the word in english and google translate sugg...

New rear deck #1: Montana Sawmill

725 days ago by Bluepine38 | 3 comments »

My old rear deck was falling apart. The ledger board was not treated lumber and had been installed withouta drip cap and was half rotted, since it is the first thing put up and the last taken down, the entire deck hadto be torn down. No pictures of this, it was just too badly built. The county building inspectors said that 4X4 post would be OK as supports, but then they wanted more 4X4 post bolted to the sides of the deckas guard posts to support the railing. I decided to simplify life and...

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #13: The First Plank

1631 days ago by MattD | 20 comments »

The First Garboard Plank The first plank is on! It has been the most difficult part of the build so far. I’ve gone through 4 planks to get it right. For my fellow LJers who may be wondering, I’ve put in a few hours here and there, but I’ve taken quite a bit of time away from the project since the holidays. I’m exciting to be focused again. The challenge with this is getting the plank flush and tight into the rabbit along the keel. It’s a tough plank bec...

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #12: Lining Off - Second Attempt

1713 days ago by MattD | 4 comments »

I finished lining off the planks today. Lining off is the process with which you project the final plank layout onto the hull. My first attempt at this didn’t go so well. Thanks to some suggestions from some fellow lumberjocks, I took the time to learn more about the process and I’m much happier with the results. The book, Building Small Boats by Greg Rossel, as recommended by DaveR, is an exceptional resource and I basically used the process in the lining off chapter. Results ...

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #11: Stem to Keel and Lining Off

1741 days ago by MattD | 11 comments »

Just a few more steps left before I can start putting the planking on the sides. Cutting in the Rabbet Between Stem and Keel The next crucial step is cutting in the rabbet between the Stem and Keel. This was done entirely by hand with a few sharp chisels. I used a small piece of wood (3”x1”x3/8”) as a template, representing the plank, to ensure a smooth transition as I cut away the rabbet. Here is the before picture: And the after picture. This was done on both ...

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #10: Cutting Stem and Keel Rabbet

1759 days ago by MattD | 3 comments »

This next part is cutting the rabbet into the Keel and Stem. The rabbet is a groove for planking to butt into. The rabbet must be accurately cut in order to form a tight seal. The rabbet for sunshine runs down both sides of the stem as shown and continues along the keel to the stern. Keel Rabbet Cutting the Rabbet in the Keel was relatively easy since I had already beveled the keelson from the lofted lines in the Stem and Knee - Part 2 section. To me, it seemed practical to try ...

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #9: Attaching Transom, Finding Planking Lumber and Copper Rivets

1760 days ago by MattD | 9 comments »

It’s been a busy month for other things, but I’ve made some good progress on the boat. I’ve also managed to find some great planking lumber, with a great story behind it, which I’ll write about a bit below. But first, update on the transom which now completes the stern. The transom is attached to sternpost with 5 countersunk #10 bronze screws which are covered with matching cherry plugs. Later on, I’ll epoxy in and cut the plugs off flush. And a ...

A Visit to Larch Wood Products

1811 days ago by Sivers | 4 comments »

Was on vacation in Eastern Canada last week and went by a place called Larch Wood Products with big signs for their showroom so decided to take a look. They specialize in what they call “Heirloom” end grain cutting boards. Not sure what makes a cutting board Heirloom…... I was fairly impressed with their work but was just looking, not in the mood to drop a few hundred on a cutting board.Check out their website: http://www.larchwoodcanada.com/products.php The pictures t...
