Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #3: Building the Molds

1888 days ago by MattD | 5 comments »

Finished the molds today! The molds create the form upon which the boat will be built. There are 5 mold forms for this boat. The shape of the molds are taken right from the lofting drawing. Picking Up refers to techniques of transferring shapes on the lofting to boards so that the shapes can be cut out. To pick up the mold shapes, I ground off half of the heads of a few dozen nails so that they would lay flat exactly on the lines in the drawing that I wanted to transfer. I then placed boar...

Work Bench Constuction Journal #1: My Dream Workbench - A Journal of Progress

940 days ago by Ron Ramsey | 21 comments »

I have finally gotten around to making a real workbench for my new, and smaller, shop (see my previous entry). I am in the planning phase right now.

Workbench #17: Completion

1003 days ago by CartersWhittling | 21 comments »

Hello, this is probably my last workbench blog entry, now that my bench is complete! Like I said in my last blog, the workbench has been complete a couple weeks before this post on November 12. With my last post I had wrote about completing the base. After I had the base assembled, glued up, and drawbored I placed the bench top onto the base. Previous to putting the top on the base I had put one coat of boiled linseed oil on the underside of the top. The top is removable from the base, I deci...

If you are already a member – log in and go to the Pattern Vault and look...
