Many people have contacted me concerning the specific mixing instructions to make homemade blotch control and specifics as to its application. So here they are. Mixing instructions Glue size is most commonly made of a watered-down, water-based, PVA adhesive. If you do plan to make your own, try something on the order of 10 parts (or a little less) water to one part Gorilla White Wood Glue. The ratios may vary with species and porosity of the wood. Use: Distilled Water (Can be purc...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsLUBKajSzo Have a look I just put together a video about using a cheap power feeder with a band saw to re-saw. Typically for back supports or rockers for my rocking chairs which are bent laminated thus I need a lot, so this helps out with quality, efficiency and safety.
Evening All, Going to do something a little different tonight and let the pictures speak. Hope they all make sense. Also please let me know if you like this idea and if I should use it again. In case you have trouble with the pics here is a link to my Flickr Album where I stored copies. How to Transfer Hope you all have a good week in and out of the shop. CtL
I start out with some 12/4 walnut, and cut 4 legs, making sure I use rift sawn lumber. Using a turning that I made for a template, I turn all 4 legs. Then I start on the joinery. This is traditional mortise and tenon joinery throughout, and I show an easy way to get nice tight fitting tenons. The front bottom rail uses a double tenon while the top uses a dovetail to hold everything together. The most unusual thing in this video is that there a shot where you can almost see me smile! Almost…. ...
Setting up a workshop on a budget. I have been working in wood since my early twenties. Owned and operated a five man custom cabinet shop, setup a toy company, and just made gifts for Christmas presents over those years. Some of my shops have been operated in small as a space as 8’x12’ in a space on a warehouse floor, to an industrial size of 3,000 sq ft in a private owned building with a storefront.Enough about that, my latest shop is setup not too mass produce or create a company but j...
I have finally found the time to get back to making videos. Seems like it has been over a year. Feels good to be able to share again: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjRwVZZffCDTQsUXXnzznPCh5GxPksNb6
I just got thru making a Guitar stand and after sanding I would like to get all of the dust off of it. I don’t want all the fine dust to ruin the finish and I heard that either Acetone or Mineral Spirits can be used to wipe down the project with a rag. Has anyone used this method or know if this is a good process.
First I work on making the “pillars” for the architectural details in the front of the hutch. Then I carve the “foundations” for the pillars with a chisel. I cut the top to size, and using the router table, I form the decorative edge. Again, I use a router to cut the groove for the inlay, glue the inlay in, flush them to the surface as with the drawers and attach the top. I also show how I fix a pretty big mistake when I was cutting the inlay. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...
