Adventures in Vacuum Veneering #2: Pimpin’ the Pump

12-27-2009 03:16 AM by SPalm | 11 comments »

Woo Hoo, this is my 1,000 post. Another checkpoint in life. I installed a complete complement of parts to make my vacuum pump more usable. I pretty much added a kit from JoeWoodWorker and followed his lead. My pump now is on a carrier with a handle and an On/Off switch. This alone would usually be enough for me to celebrate. But there’s more… I also added a vacuum controller that allows me to dial in the amount of pressure that I want. It is the little black box with the black tu...

Resawing wood and veneers #1: The Laguna Driftmaster Fence System

05-26-2008 03:20 AM by Karson | 14 comments »

Well I went ahead and did it. A woodworking e-mail blog stated that Laguna Driftmaster fence system for cutting veneers and I went to their web site and viewed the video. I’ve cut veneers and thin strips of wood before, but never with a lot of accuracy. The kitchen cabinets that I made in NJ was made with Ambrosia Maple that was sawed into 1/4” slices and sanded to 5.2MM. It was then installed into a metric plywood router bit set for stile and rails. I wanted to do something...

Adventures in Vacuum Veneering #4: First Lessons Learned

12-28-2009 06:27 PM by SPalm | 6 comments »

1) A soft glue roller really works well.All I can say is I am impressed. This seemingly cheap roller spreads glue like paint. Just squirt glue out as normal and roll, up/down and left/right. The result is smooth and consistent throughout. Clean up is with soap and water. 2) A veneer saw is great but needs a tune up. I tried both cutting with a knife and a veneer saw. For now, the saw wins. I guess that’s why they still sell them every place veneer is sold. But mine needed a t...

Hide Glue #2: Hide Glue Primer

01-28-2009 01:03 AM by David | 15 comments »

I am interested in hide glue for a number of reasons. The first of which is the “romance” of using a traditional method that has its foundations as far back as Ancient Egypt and the cabinet shops of Colonial America. I also appreciate the pace of using hide glue . . . slow while getting set-up and quick when applying the glue. I also like the reversibility of hide glue and the fact that it accepts stain and finish without leaving telltale glue marks like that pesky spot of PVA ...

Live in the shop...Creating bandings for Wood Inlay

10-24-2010 07:44 PM by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

Today we are creating bandings from scratch. We’ve got some ideas for the wood inlay designs so we are ripping on the table saw, sanding on the drum sander, and gluing. At some point we will cut banding segments on the dedicated miter saw and then gluing some more. Plus we will be doing a bit of video shoots for the next release. Feel free to stop by. visit…The Apprentice and The Journeyman ...........Learn more, Experience more!

A really tough client this time!

01-03-2009 11:49 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 40 comments »

Well I think I met my match! My current wife, ( I”m considering trading her in), always says I never build anything for her, or as she would say US. (yeah right). A while back our projection screen television committed suicide. So we bought a flat screen model that hangs on the wall. Of course all the “stuff” that used to sit on top of the previous T.V. cabinet was demoted to sitting on the floor. Thus, the need for a cabinet to sit below the new unit, and house the...
