Recovering wood from discarded pallets

04-10-2018 07:56 PM by DaveFFMedic | 6 comments »

LOML asked me to make a pallet wood accent wall in our kitchen. I set to task of recovering boards from discarded pallets. I searched around and didn’t find any definitive information on the best way to disassemble the pallets. I did some trial and error and found the quickest way for me to disassemble them. In the following video, I show how I took apart the pallets in about 2 hours time. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/ZEX7xrofNHg

Youtube videos: Another element to Woodworking #2: What i have learned about Video View numbers

04-05-2018 01:53 AM by rustednail | 2 comments »

One thing I have learned with the youtube channel thus far is that you never know which videos are going to get more views than others. I have made a few videos that I felt were going to do well and get lots of views, likes and comments but got almost nothing. On the other hand, one of the most watched videos I have on my channel is one that I recorded and edited quickly and without a lot of thought behind it. This video in particular didn’t have many views for the first week, but it seems to...

Disston saw restoration #1: Great find on Ebay

04-04-2018 07:43 PM by Oldtool | 8 comments »

About 2 weeks ago I was viewing hand saws on Ebay, looking for something to cut the cheeks on tenons, as I have two Disston saws – one 14” and one 16”, and a 12” Jackson (made by Disston) all filed for cross cut. I came across this Disston, as is and not touched by the seller: After receiving it, I decided to clean it up and change the teeth from cross cut to rip, but otherwise it was in good shape – straight, great tote condition without any damage, j...

Tip: The Shim Fix for the Small Gaps in a Mitered Corner

03-25-2018 01:14 AM by DeLayne Peck | 2 comments »

If anything sets me off in the shop it is miscutting or bumbling a miter. Too often I don’t have the material or patience to remake a part. Or, an effort to grain match just cracked up. There are a lot of solutions: Glue and sawdust, burnishing with a screwdriver, or try wood putty. I’m certain shimming a gap is not new. But, it works. Cut a thin strip. Hand sand it to thickness. Dot some glue on it and tap it in place. Carefully clean up any squeeze-out. When the g...

Cost Saving Tips: Glue Mats and Machine Lighting

03-18-2018 04:41 PM by DeLayne Peck | 3 comments »

Blue silicone glue mats recently appeared in woodworking catalogs. $29.95, gulp, for a 15” x 30” mat. I hate slopped, dried glue, but really? I recently “borrowed” a BBQ non-stick grill mat from the kitchen and intentionally slopped and dripped glue on it. Dried glue popped and wiped off with little effort. Set of 5, 16” x 13”, $5 bucks! Here is the link! Posted by other brothers, but it bears repeating: Magnetic, LED sewing machine lights are in...

This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer.
