  1. While working at the theater set shop one day, one of the guys that buys materials was going to pitch some 2'x2' plywood cutoffs. It looked pretty good to me, so I asked if I could have it instead of trashing it. It turned out to be pretty good stuff. It's 5mm thick (slightly less than 1/4") and has very nice wood on one side and decent wood on the other. I've used it for a few projects since then. One thing I noticed is that it is 3 ply and the plies are all about the same thickness instead of just having a microscopically thin face veneer. Here's a photo of the edge co
  2. As my wife is from Ukraine it is her culture carry over that we don't wear shoes in the house. So we have several pairs we commonly wear close to the door for when we go out. It's a cluster, and the time has come to make something to fix this. Got given several pieces of 3/4 plywood cut offs as well as some of this wire shelving. Not crazy about the wire shelving for the house but for shoes not a problem. Started out with this: Think of it as a rough draft. The tolerance on this is a set parameter. Cannot exceed 28 1/2 inches wide. Or it
  3. Worked on this while stuck at home. Two 4 X 8' - 3/4" sheets of plywood glued together. Self adhesive edging around the outside edge, several coats of floor quality polyurethane and on 300 lb. capacity wheels. Exact height for using it as an extension table for my table saw.
  4. Or used a pick up with an 8' bed. Luckily no serious injuries. https://www.foxnews.com/us/florida-driver-escapes-injury-after-plywood-impales-car-windshield
  5. I was recently drooling, er viewing plywoods at a local (non-Box) wood store and ran across plywood tagged "lightweight". I did find some internet references, so it appears to be a Real Thing. Any of you use it yet? Is this same-O product under different name?
  6. The things I get myself into... Finished up the "market stand" for a local library. They supplied this picture as an example of what they wanted- From that, and several conversations, I ended up with this Sketchup idea- My original intention was to make all of the joints mortise and tenon but then opted for dados. 3/4" red oak ply from Lowes. Pleasantly surprised at how flat it stayed after breaking down the full sheet. The exposed plywood edges were banded with melt on veneer and/or some shop made edging. Couple of coats of gloss poly. Sc
  7. Still with the camera issues today. Waiting on a call back about a second Opinion on this knee. Plywood was rough cut to size. leaving quite a bit extra.. Took a few more cuts to get just the right fit. Even used a block plane to straighten out the saw cuts.....started grabbing clamps and a mallet. Found a couple spots needing trimmed up. Got more clamps down. 6 clamps, so far, and haven't glue things up, yet Had one square inside, to check a corner, or three.. Seemed to be square. Have most of the gaposis fixed. Decided to load the box
  8. With the base finished, all that was left to do was trim out the top with the walnut edge trim. Glue, clamps and some pin nails. I forgot to take photos of the top to apron mounting system but this Sketchup drawing should explain what I did. These are simple wooden clips with their tabs captured in slots that run around the perimeter of the inside of the aprons. The slot is 1/4" wide by 3/8" deep. The clips are cut from 3/4" thick maple and the tabs sized of a snug fit in the slots. Screws are used to secure the clip to the top. The hole is slightly over-sized and the screws are th
  9. 12 sheets of 3/4 BB, and 4 sheets of 1/4 BB stacked on edge, 36” high stickered stack of walnut about 16” away. Standing between. Needed the 1/4. Naturally, it was behind the 3/4. Pulled the whole stack over. Knocked me backwards on to the walnut. Trapped my legs between the ply and the walnut. I was flat on my back. The ply just inches off my chest. Couldn’t move. Hurt like the devil. Finally worked a short board loose and got it between the ply and the edge of the walnut stack. With more strength than I thought possible, was able to pry the ply up enough to get one leg free. Had to take
  10. A couple of weeks ago I got some 3'x8' sheets of plywood off Craig's list for free from a church's festival who decided their day was over. My guess, based on the plywood cores, is that they were made some time in the '80s. Anyway, snatched it up and it's 1/2" painted plywood with lots of sticky Velcro and hot glue on one side. Had to add some 3/4" CDX plywood from the scrap bin waiting-for-the-right-project pile for the torsion boxes. Velcro goes on the non-show surface. I need to get a bit more hardware, then do some alignment and attach the supports. I also have to make
  11. I understand it is not a good idea to use a plane on the edges of plywood because of the glue. My question: will doing so damage the plane in any way other than dulling the iron? If this is the only problem, a few minutes with the WorkSharp 3K will clear that up. Sometimes,when fitting small pieces, it is necessary to remove minute amounts, impractical or even dangerous with a table saw. Seems like a hand plane would be the ideal tool for such a job.
  12. Rockler email today has a video on making a bent lamination chair and has a contest linked to it. It is a interesting process but labor and time intensive. ROCKLER BENT WOOD CHALLENGE
  13. Home depot has White Oak plywood but I questioned their pro core brand. Turns our that is an MDF core. For the 1/4" back that should not be any trouble because the fasteners go thru material into solid wood. The 3/4" thick is the base of the unit and it fits into dadoes on the sides and front stiles and has magentic catches mounted and has a peice of solid wood glued to the front. Is the MDF core suitable for base of a display case. I am worried about the rigidity and the strength when glued into dadoes? Should I get veneer core 3/4" white oak plywood for the base? I should me
  14. Been wanting to have one of these for my lathe and finally got around to making it. Had almost everything lying around the shop. Scrap plywood ~ 17" x 48" and a piece ~ 10" x 10". Hardware is all 1/4 x 20 machine bolts/nuts and fender washers. I may replace the wing nuts with knobs to make it a little easier on old hands. The cam action hold down has been in my "extras box" for a couple of years waiting on a worthwhile project. Got it from Woodcraft. The wheels are from an $8 pair of In-Line Skates bought from Goodwill. The "circle" is made of 3 layers of 3/4 plywood. The wheel hol

  16. Good morning to all the mothers out there. I'm in the market to buy a set of these bits, I'm leaning towards the Whiteside 470 set but was looking to see if there was any others that might be good as well? Any special place to buy to get a good deal would be really appreciated. Pat
  17. My wife wanted me to make a large sunflower for our fence. I used plywood and pine to make this one for her, its about 3' dia. I grabbed some old acrylic Paint and made it pretty colorful. I sprayed it with some weather resistant stuff. I haven't found anything here (CO) that can take this sun for long, with the exception of porch and deck paint. I've tried just about everything you can think of or heard of, nothing holds up, especially clear stuff.

    Shamrock

    Hi, my name is Artie, and I’m new here (maybe 2 months) and new to woodworking. This is my first post on the finishing forum. I just made my first scroll saw project (that story is on the scrolling forum LOL). I made a shamrock, with it being Saint Patricks Day, and all. It is 3/8 Baltic Birch from Woodcraft. Do I sand with a fine sand paper (grade/number?) ? Or as I read somewhere else, do I not sand because the plus are so thin on 3/8? Prime with an interior primer, and then paint with an interior house paint? Latex? Oil based? I was thinking a Kelly Green, semi-gloss. Any thoughts/opinions
  19. I started this one a few weeks ago and got sidetracked on other projects. I like to embellish the wood color with contrasting woods and ornamental things. It is not as large as it appears and is about 5" total length. Another Christmas gift
  20. This Christmas tree ornament was a struggle from start to finish. I wrote about it, didn't know if would be a keeper. Persistence pays. The center part is the manufactured colored ply. It had some bad places. The light colored was some maple I had, I think. I have a box of old wood and there was some soft maple, amoung others like spalted Apple. It was not very solid when I got into it and I really had to work to keep putting it back. I wanted to do more, but the best thing I did was quit while it was in one piece.
  21. Have you ever just really streched your woodworking skills and your design skill to take things to a new level. Well this week I was ask to make a cow. Yep, and cow, but the fun is it will be used for vacation bible school. So here you go, I got some help with the plywood so I didn't have to lift anything and cut out the body.   Then the cow got some color.   And finally the cow got it's spots.   The cow will be used in VBS and will be able to be milked. That part will be finished tomorrow. So boy, this has really streched the design and woodworking skills. LOL
  22. I was asked by our local library if I would build 3 shelving units for storage. I did the project as a public service and only charged for the material. Next time may be different.
  23. something different for me. some scrap plywood and a picture.
