We just published a new video on the reversibility of the animal glues and specifically hide glue through a presentation and 2 projects. I hope you enjoy those and it answers some of the questions we receive often regarding the understanding of reversibility. Of course Old Brown Glue has the same property.

Timber framing #1: Laying out a simple curve

06-01-2015 02:00 AM by Catlike | 0 comments »

I downloaded a free set of plans for timber-framed sawhorses from Timberframe Headquarters. The plans call for a curved cut-out on the bottom side of each base piece. I was thinking it was too much trouble to lay out and cut these, but I remembered some how-to from the boat-building books I read last year, and I decided I wanted to try laying out and fairing a curve. First, I used a sector, story sticks, and my L-square to find and mark the middle of the base. The sector saved me from h...

Beginner Plane Restoration #1: Why I decided to do this, and my initial impressions of the plane

05-28-2015 06:11 AM by bbasiaga | 6 comments »

I recently came up with a project idea that will benefit from the use of a hand plane. Unfortunately, I don’t have one! After hours of research on old threads here, and soliciting some great feedback on a thread of my own, I had all but decided to buy a Veritas #3 low angle smoother. Then, my wife’s job situation became quite unstable. While we are working that out, I thought I could spend a small amount of money and give a restoration a try. I have the time (projects on ho...

new tool (sort of) Bench Stop

05-24-2015 03:25 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Bench stop!I have an “out door” work bench out by my garage. it stays covered with a tarp most of the time. I’ve been working against a wooden peg that frequently slips. So Yesterday I took an old RR spike I had lying around. It is almost the right shape to start with! made sure I knew where my helper was: lit a fire: and started banging on it! when I was happy with the shape of it, I put the fire out and let it cool. it neither needs or wa...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #20: Veneering the lid and preparing the bandings

05-23-2015 01:18 AM by Patricelejeune | 9 comments »

Last time I posted I had glued down the boxes bodies with the inside already french polished I worked on gluing the marquetry panels to the trimmed to size lid My favorite moment is when you see it glued down right way up for the first time, it appears slowly while you remove the paper This glueing of the marquetry on both side had to be precise has they had to be perfectly centered as well as the right way up as when you open the box the owner will appreciate to g...

Chevalet de Marqueterie #2: Small Beginnings

05-17-2015 08:50 AM by TobiasZA | 6 comments »

As my “Honey-Do” and client projects wind down a little before it really gets cold here in Swellendam, I have at last made a start on my build. A few weeks of regular scrounging at my local tip has yielded some good lumber and adding this to my off cut stack, I think that I have enough lumber to do the job. Buying the hardware kit and plans from ASFM at $500.00 means I would have been into about ZAR6,500.00 before I even made a start. So…..enter “Shipwright” w...
