Gluing Joints: It's A Surface Thing

By Bernie Bottons Posted: 01/15/2015 6:02PM

"In coatings, we preach the need to get the coating onto the wood as soon after the final sanding is completed as is absolutely possible. Obviously, as wood is a material that is susceptible to humidity and temperature change, one can see the logic in that concept."


How to Remove Glue Squeeze-Out

By Randy Maxey Posted: 01/15/2015 9:00AM

I remember when I first started woodworking my dad would come up behind me as I was gluing up a project. “Got enough glue on that?,” he’d say. Glue was everywhere. I guess I was afraid of starving the joints of glue. I needn’t have worried with the amount of glue I was using.

This Shaker-style sitting bench is simple enough that it could be mass-produced quickly using conventional shop tools or CNC machines. Of course, you can alter the overall size of the final piece per your customer’s request, but this design makes it easy.

By Randy Maxey Posted: 01/12/2015 9:00AM

When the shadow box I’m making out of cherry plywood needed some hardwood edging to hide the ugly plywood edges, I used my little Stanley 101. It’s a small plane a little longer than 3″. It’s a cute little thing. But it comes in handy for light tasks like this.
