Hot Hide Glue Experimentation #1: Prep and First Try

10-18-2016 01:17 PM by Lazyman | 2 comments »

I posted a forum topic recently asking about the best way to attach some veneer to a project I am planning and one of the recommendations was to use hot hide glue (HHG). I’ve seen posts before from fellow LJs about how much they like using HHG and have been meaning to to give it a try so I decided this was a good excuse. I will share my journey in this blog. Step 1: Research. I spent a couple of days understanding the history, uses, pros and cons, tools and techniques. Of course...

Dresser Build #1: Making the case and drawers

10-14-2016 02:51 AM by Julian | 2 comments »

I started this project a few months ago and have been working on it when time allows. This is a dresser sized to fit in a specific location. I tried to design it so that the proportions looked good. Hopefully I have succeeded. Made with cherry plywood and hardwood. Here’s a few photos of the build. I am veneering the drawer fronts with sepelle and home made cross banding.I sealed the wood with clear shellac and then applied red mahogany stain. Once it’...

Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by WoodworkinPROGRESS | 1 comment »

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

Plywood Chevalet #3: Hammer Veneering .... Won't be long now.

07-13-2016 04:47 AM by shipwright | 18 comments »

The plywood version of my chevalet design is officially a success. It cuts really nicely, is solid as a rock, and can be put together considerably more economically than a solid wood model and with less woodworking experience. ...... but it looks like plywood. :-( Well it did until today anyway. The new owner of the prototype ( one of my recent students, Kendra) came over today and made a very good start on hammer veneering it with some pretty 1/16” mahogany. She hadn’t done a...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

Curved Front End Table #6: Pulls, Finish and Final Assembly

05-14-2016 01:04 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

This is the final video in this series. Before final assembly, I finish the piece with shellac and Waterlox for the cherry, and water based poly for the maple parts. I also show how I made the custom pulls for the doors and the drawer from ebony and maple. I show how I hide the magnetic catches for the doors so they are almost invisible. Then it’s on to the task of installing them correctly on the curved surfaces. The rest of the interior pieces get installed, the top and back get...

Curved Front End Table #4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer

04-09-2016 10:29 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...

Curved Front End Table #3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up

03-26-2016 12:29 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Homemade Tetris Game Board

03-24-2016 04:55 AM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

Here is the link to my video. I made this project for my wife as a gift for her birthday which was two months ago. I don’t have much textual instruction for this build but the video describes the process. She does love the gift but it ended up being too big for the idea that I had. I wanted her to take it to work and place on her desk but it is 22 by 14 inches. I hope you enjoy the project video and please give me any feedback that will be helpful f...
