Thanks for the fun project gasman. Even though it they are simplistic in design these were surprisingly challenging. Always learning I guess.

I’m going to also take a moment to pump the tires of gasmans beer. He was kind enough to give me a few of his selections, I’m not used to drinking something that has a bit more octane so I was promptly on my ass lol!

Gasman as this is the makers thread you should share some details of your beer, I’m sure there are others that would be interested in it.

Fuzz are you still growing hops? Do you use your hops after harvest? Perhaps gasman could find a use for them if they are not spoken for of course.

Yes, I have a colossal hops vine. Unfortunately it was from a friend, so I don't know the variety. I keep meaning to use it for my own beer, but harvest time is September and so far I've been too busy to do it. Without drying, you need to use fresh hops right away. And drying looks like a bit of a hassle. But yes, if he wants to come by and grab some mystery hops, he is welcome!

hey guys

i've got a question. in the coming weeks i plan on building myself a new work bench for my garage. i'm planning on something like this....

diy-plywood-multifunction-workbench-plans by bc-chris, on Flickr

so here is my question - the table has a bunch of holes in the top and side for using bench dogs - which i think will be really handy (i don't plan in putting that many holes in, but i do want some). what is the most common hole size of bench dogs? i just assumed 3/4" but then when i checked places like amazon they seem to be all over the map. as small as 1/2" up to 1" and then of course there are the metric measurements.

i'm hoping some of you have experience with them. thanks

**for anyone interested in the build video it's a few parts - this is part 1...

I have nothing to offer on bench dogs, but that is dead sexy.

20mm dog holes will probably give you the best selection of dogs & accessories.

Finally finished off a stave snare drum I made. 13x7 maple, 3/4" thick.

Thought I'd include a pic of the shell before I drilled and mounted hardware.

What was your paint/finish process?

I sanded the drum down to 800 grit if memory serves. Then I set up a couple rollers on a strip of wood, so I could spin the drum with the side up facing me. Wiped on some stain, worked around the drum and pulled it up with the rag to lighten to stain trying to produce a fade. Knocked the grain back down, and started applying wipe on poly. Did a few coats for a buildup, sand... few coats more, sand... I think I did about 12 coats, used steel wool and then wet sanded. Gave it some time and then actually applied automotive polish cream, then buffed out and swirl marks I had. Really happy with the end result and I'm not really experienced with finishing.

A paint gun would be really nice.

Guess I can show something off now.

Painted this as a break from animating over the weekend. Sunday afternoon project with some acrylics. I'm calling it "Trigger".


Spoiler!

Thought I would post some pics of a table that surferguy built for me. It is for my orchids. I looked around in various furniture stores for some kind of console table but to get the length that I required, the tables were all too wide....so I messaged surferguy to see what he could come up with and it is a beauty. He is building me another one as well. This one is 5' long by 1' wide and 30" high.

Thanks for trusting me with this one redforver. Your photos turned out great! This was a challenging project for me. I had to adjust the design mid build but I am happy with the overall look of the final piece. I based the idea on one of my cutting boards and expanded it to the full 5’ length.

If anybody has interest the central species is a single piece of Ambrosia maple sandwiched by walnut and tigerwood.

The next one I’m building is a similar concept but will feature Black Limba as the central species.

How many glue-ups did that take? Use the Domino?

Its not as many as youd think. The table top is an initial glue up laminating the 7 boards. I then flatten and square it all before doing the 40 or so cross cuts.

I then made sure to mark the pieces for continuity before separating into three units. I glued up each unit then flattened to make sure the whole top was consistent in thickness. Lastly I used my domino to make sure I had a perfect line up for the final glue up of the three units achieving the full length.

What I discovered halfway through the build was that an end grain piece of this size will actually flex. In this case it was upwards of 1/2! I did not anticipate that but after reflection it makes sense as there is no longer internal fibers that run the length of it giving it strength/support.

I had to add some aprons between the legs to stop any sagging over time or under load. Like I said it was a challenge to keep the overall look while needing to add the essential support.
