Homemade Hot Hide Glue Brush

01-06-2018 05:49 AM by Rich | 3 comments »

I’ve become something of a hide glue junky. It started with liquid hide glue. I was intrigued with the chemistry of adding urea to hide glue and water, following the cooking method and emerging with a glue that’s strong, liquid at room temperature, and probably the easiest to work with that I know of. Liquid hide glue has some great characteristics, but lately I ventured into hot hide glue. I’ll leave the nuances of liquid versus hot to the experts like shipwright, but...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Ridgid Oscillating Sander (Motor hard starting problem)

12-31-2017 03:02 PM by woodshaver Tony C | 10 comments »

Our daughter-in-law gave our son a Christmas gift (2017) of a Ridgid Oscillating Sander from Home Depot. Motor won’t start every time and if it does start it’s slow starting and strains a bit before starting. Same problem with the motor/solenoid that I had after buying 3 and returning them a few years ago. I found the reason why the motor would sometimes not start and then end up smoking if you didn’t turn it off immediately. Watch this youtube video that I foundR...

Creating a Mixed Nut Dish from a log I found

12-29-2017 05:41 PM by beahan | 3 comments »

I wanted to make a nut dish like one that my grandparents used to have. Recently I found a log that was thick enough to make one. I know this project is rather simple to do, but I think the nut dish looks way better than a plastic bowl of nuts on the counter. I have embedded the video, enjoy! Chris View on YouTube

How I built the Timber frame Staircase

12-11-2017 05:13 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

You can watch it be built on YouTube Or read about it below I built this timber frame staircase from reclaimed beams that came from another client’s house a few miles up the road. The beams use to support a pergola, that was torn down during their remodel. We templated the area where the stairs where going to go and brought it back to the shop and premade them. The install was fairly straightforward as they were already in assembled in sections. All that was left was to put them in ...
