Oak Boat Bed #4: Applying the Veneer

02-28-2012 11:56 AM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Unlike my normal boat bed, this one will not be painted. It will be built in oak. Using oak on most of the project is, for the most part, straight forward. Not much different the using the maple and MDF on the painted version, until we come to the Bow of the Boat (AKA the toy box). Since we have a curved bow, a veneer must be used over the bending plywood. In prepping, I make sure all my staples are driven. I also fill all staple holes and imperfections with Bondo. This will keep tho...

Oak Boat Bed #3: Toy Box Lid

02-23-2012 12:10 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Continuing on the boat bed project, I have to now make a lid for the toy box. First I trace the shape of the toy box onto a 1/2” material. Rough cut it, screw it down and then use a trimming bit on the router to trim it flush. I use some templates that I made a few years ago to make the trim. I’ll then use a rabbiting bit and cut a groove in the inside of the trim the thickness of the bead board. A round over is used on the top edges. I put together two of the three side...

random #22: JACKPOT

07-02-2009 10:59 AM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

In early February, 2009, in rough seas 14 miles off the coast of Sussex, England, Russian cargo ship Sinegorsk lost its load of 1500 tonnes of sawn timber, which washed ashore on the beaches of Kent. The police issued warnings, but scavengers came out in force. Daily Mail has several great shots of people braving the icy surf and a high wall to claim the lumber, which is apparently still the rightful property of the original owner, according to law. Police were powerless to stop the lo...
