Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #98: Best Edge Banding Around!

12-16-2018 08:01 PM by Paul Bucalo | 4 comments »

Before heading out to the Big Box Store, I checked to see if they had the 3/4” wide red oak edge banding I needed to finish the daughter’s two dog bowl holders. Look what I found: Yep. You read the description right: 3/4” thick, 6” wide, 25’ long. Heh. Here we wrap our oak planks into rolls. ;)

I did a little more this weekend. Actually I did a lot. Don’t pay attention to the wheels. They are the next thing I’m going to work on, then the 50 cal. By the way, what should I put on the wood? I have Tung oil, Danish oil and linseed oil. I can’t decide.

Model build #1 : The Exhaust Heat Shield

10-26-2018 11:55 AM by Jason1974 | 6 comments »

This is my first blog entry so I will do my best to explain how I made the heat shield. It’s pretty simple....First I used a dowel (5/8”) that was big enough to slide the exhaust into with at least 1/8” wall thickness left. Then I used a ruler and spaced out where I wanted to drill the holes. I spaced mine out with a measurement of 1/4” spacing and I staggered each row....Here I placed the dowel in a vise and made sure it wouldn’t slip during drilling. Using a...

Salvaged lumber table top #1: Found lumber in the woods

09-27-2018 08:19 PM by RBurke83 | 5 comments »

So I bought a house about a year ago and while walking around the property I found this fairly large piece of lumber that was partially sunken into the forest floor. After more inspection I decided to remove it today with the goal of a massively thick three slab dining room table top. The board is, after cutting off about 18” that was damaged at the end, 21’3/4” long, 14.5” wide, and 4.5” thick. After I determined it wasn’t cedar (I sometimes build kayaks), i cu...

Woodworking in Nairobi, Kenya #2: Nairobi: The search begins

08-28-2018 01:15 PM by LukeCan | 1 comment »

I’ve arrived in Nairobi. My hand tools are still coming by a slow boat and even slower government paperwork. So no shop setup yet. Now the search begins for supplies (wood, glue, tools etc.). This is proving to be a challenge. Finding the products you want (groceries, clothes, wood) is more like a treasure hunt. You have to find the right store and few if any have any web presence. Things are not organised, or perhaps better to say differently organised, than in North America. First ...
