Edge Banding Particle Board with Solid Hardwood

07-02-2009 05:37 AM by John Gray | 9 comments »

I’m building an 18” V-Drum Sander from http://www.stockroomsupply.com/V_Drum_Sander.php Stockroom Supply. I was given a Particle Board piece to use as a top it’s laminated with a thin slick veneer top and bottom. I’d like to band the edges with Oak that I already cut and mitered. The question is how to attach the Oak to the Particle Board edges? I’m read plenty of horror stories about splitting the Particle Board when using screws and/or nails to attach it. ...

Holtzapffel Workbench #3: Bench top and base come together forever

06-28-2009 10:01 PM by cylis007 | 5 comments »

It has been some time since I have updated my blog on my progress. The bench is coming along nicely. I began working on the table top and am learning a lot as I progress. The top requires a lot of work. I don’t see myself building another bench for a long time. I am glad that I thought about what I would need before ever beginning. Since I started my bench, I have seen other’s benches on this site that look great. It has made me think about a wish list for the next bench,...

Eye Brow Windows #3: Building the Windows

06-21-2009 05:27 AM by cabinetmaster | 5 comments »

Ok, now for the actual building of the eyebrow windows. This is where we left off. Remember that the side pieces are 3/8” plywood 43” tall, 1 1/2” at the bottom tapered to 33” at the top. After attaching the side pieces, I was able to measure around the circumference of the arch and determine the length of the top pieces. I used 3/8” bendy board (flex-core) and cut a slight angle on each end where it attaches to the plywood on the sides. The bendy board go...

Eye Brow Windows #1: The existing windows to be replaced

06-20-2009 03:14 AM by cabinetmaster | 5 comments »

Well I finally got all 7 of these eybrow windows done and sent to the site for install. As you can see from these pictures, whoever did the job the first time did not get the veneer on right and it bubbled. The owners did not give the people a chance to fix it. They told us that they were very happy with all the cabinets and woodwork that we were doing and they wanted us to do it right. I think the main problem was that there was very little substructure behind the veneer. I ...

Filing Cabinet #1: Filing Cabinet

06-11-2009 12:57 AM by mreagleeyes | 3 comments »

So the brief was that they wanted a place to store all the paper work in the house. Passports, house insurance, car related stuff and all the other paper trails that we must keep hold off.I’ve checked out the room that they want the piece to go into, and they have a rather ugly looking Mahogany table with the computer on it, they have asked if I would try and match this piece. I’ve looked over it so many times and still the piece says to me “Ugly”. So I’m going t...

That was the mistake! - Inlay Banding

05-23-2009 01:54 PM by John8059 | 13 comments »

I am finally working on this project again and ran into another problem. You can find out how I got this far from blogs I posted earlier. Last time I showed how I set up guides to cutting the inlay banding grooves. I eventually got all the inlay banding installed, but when I went to sand it flush with the veneer I found I could feel that the resulting surface was uneven. If I could feel it, imagine how bad it was going to look finished! (Keep in mind my hands are trained to feel irregula...

Ironing Veneer

05-21-2009 10:57 PM by tenontim | 8 comments »

After many comments and questions about the veneer ironing method, I made some time to do a blog on how I use this technique. The items needed are the same as used in the regular method of veneering; a straight edge, sharp knife (I use a scalpel), veneer tape, sandpaper, glue, distilled water, measuring cup, and a paint brush. Additionally, you’ll need an iron. Pick out your veneer and substrate, I usually use mdf. First, I match up any pieces that I need to make a large enough pi...

A Solid Foundation to Build a Future - A New Workbench #2: The base comes together

04-24-2009 08:55 PM by bfd | 18 comments »

So my 3 sheets of veneer arrive and I open them to inspect them. I opted to use 2 ply 4×8 sheets to save time vs. laying up my own veneer. Out of the 3 sheets I rejected two, one walnut sheet which was supposed to be flat cut and the maple sheet which I paid a premium for to have wider leaves. The walnut piece didn’t have any cathedraling in it at all and was made up entirely of the quartered portion of a flat cut piece of veneer. The supplier worked with me to get me repla...

Router Table #1: Getting this project off to a late start on Lumberjocks

04-03-2009 01:15 AM by Jamie | 6 comments »

Well, It’s been a long time since I have posted anything on here, and I figured that since I have already started a new project that isn’t complete yet, this would be the perfect time. For the past couple of years, I have been wanting to build a router table ala Norm. Well, my birthday was last friday (March 27) and my wife was asking me what I wanted. Well, long story short, I started out with a couple sheets of 3/4” oak plywood, and a sheet of MDF. This past weekend...

A Solid Foundation to Build a Future - A New Workbench #1: building the bases

03-31-2009 02:31 AM by bfd | 7 comments »

So my latest project is officially underway. Click Here http://lumberjocks.com/bfd/blog/8062 to see the back story and details. I decide to build from the ground up so I start with the slab legs first. Here you see one end panel with the heavy duty glides attached and the 3 inner layers of Particle board. The glides are rated for either 1000 or 2000 lbs (either way they should hold!) The layers are glued and screwed together to make a particle board sandwich. I then atta...
