How to Stabilize Spalted Wood #2: Finishing Up

01-25-2016 03:06 AM by bondogaposis | 4 comments »

The vacuum chamber is done, now we need to put in our piece of wood and weight it down, then fill the jar w/ resin. I use Turn Tex Cactus Juice. Make sure that the resin covers the top of the block of wood by at least 1/2” or more. Then pump the brake bleeder until you hit 25 on the guage. This will immediately cause the resin froth and foam as the air leaves the cellular structure of the wood and is replaced by resin. I like to leave it in the resin for at least 24hrs, longer ...

Son's first you tube video - bowl turning

01-24-2016 10:04 AM by haskins | 3 comments »

My Son got a lathe for christmas and has turned quiet a few bowls in the last month. He’s 14 and has picked it up pretty quick. He’s also been wanting to start making you tube videos, as he spends a lot of time watching other woodworker’s stuff. Im impressed at how good it turned out as it was his first effort at any kind of video production. In the 8 min video below he goes through the process from preparing the log (pear tree) to final sanding of the small bowl. htt...

Odds 'N' Ends #3: DeWalt DW735 Planer Blade Rotation

01-23-2016 05:25 PM by ThomasLightle | 2 comments »

Note: I was going to narrate this video, but I think it speaks for itself, and I really like how the music synced up to it, so I left it as-is. You can voice your opinion below about this different format. I ran a couple thousand feet of yellow pine through my planer for the past 6 months and it was time to rotate my blades before tackling an upcoming project using red oak. If you have seen my previous video about cleaning blades, you know how nasty yellow pine is. I took the opportunit...

How to Stabilize Spalted Wood #1: Building a Pickle Jar Vacuum Chamber

01-23-2016 02:48 AM by bondogaposis | 3 comments »

Spalted wood is beautiful stuff, most woodworkers will agree to that. However it has its drawbacks due to the spalting process is caused by fungi attacking the wood cells. Spalted wood is essentially partially decomposed wood and therefore has soft spots and ink lines and spongy areas that make it unsuitable for some uses. I have some spalted apple that I want to use for tool handles, in order for this beautiful wood to hold up to the abuses I put my tools through I will have to stabilize ...

15 Ft Power-Drifter Fishing Boat, "Tiger Lily" #2: Change of Plans and Doing a Jig

01-18-2016 04:22 PM by Tomato | 5 comments »

Entry on 1/18/2016: Watching some Disney this weekend I have come up with a name. She will be called, “Tiger Lily”! After getting some quotes from the lumber yard it occurred to me that, since I can’t get 4×10’s, I will have to scarf more than one joint to get the planking and board lengths for the 16.5 footer. This will add significant extra cost with a lot of waste. I decided to go to the 15’ version and, even though I’m losing about two feet o...

15 Ft Power-Drifter Fishing Boat, "Tiger Lily" #1: The plans are in!

01-15-2016 08:42 PM by Tomato | 5 comments »

Entry on 1/15/2016: Hi everyone! I am an avid steelhead fisherman in Southeast Michigan. The rivers down here are a little difficult to drift a float like I would prefer. It’s hard to get into a good hole due to lots of overgrowth on the banks and the majority of the river being private property. My solution is the Power-Drifter from Glen-L. It will allow me to slow my travel down the river, hotshot, fly fish, or drift with a spinning combo or centerpin. I will also get some good ...

choosing what is right for you #5: Cross Cut Sled

01-13-2016 03:18 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 2 comments »

I never had a need for a cross cut sled, and not really sure if I ever will have a need for one to be honest with you, I say this because 90% of any thing I need to make a cross cut on, My Radial arm saw does the job, and anything that I can’t do on the radial arm saw, well that is what my circular saw is for. How ever a friend of mine who is just getting started asked me how to go about making one. His table saw is the same as mine so making a sled using my table as the basis was simpl...
