Re: Difficulties with concave back mouldings ....

I used tape worked firmly into the recess or on occasion blue tack or plasticine to fill the recess where the cut would be. A complete pain, which is one reason why I got a mitre saw. No problems now.

Re: Mini bench top table-saw

I've just built a table saw into my workbench. I use the saw Triton module that is designed go into a portable bench system. You need access to the underside to adjust the height of the blade and connect up the power. The riving knife is removeable when I need to use the whole bench top which is 8x4...

Re: Posting glass

Plywood backing for rigidity, a inch or so larger than the glass, 3 layers of 2 layer fluted cardboard. Handy wrap and tape. Add fragile tape for good measure. Don't make the package too heavy. I.e. Max 3 sheets. Use Royal Mail if you can.

Re: Using up offcuts

More offcuts being put to good use. An ash and black walnut chopping board made of moulding offcuts from Lion. I ripped the rebate off of both mouldings on the table saw and glued and clamped overnight. I smoothed and cut the resultant board on my CNC. Oil to come. These can be made with basic tools...

Re: Deep tray frame ID

I use Rose and Hollis A45 upside down with a spacer glued and pinned into the rebate to make the base. This will give the depth you need. It's not too hard even with basic facilities. the 'face" of the this moulding is 13mm wide, pretty close to your needs.

Re: Using up offcuts

Thanks, boxes are on the list and not too hard. Frames might be an option, but probably smaller, higher end phot frames, if these is such a thing.

Re: Basic hand finishing

The quickest way I have found is use a thick body chalk paint ( or add whiting to white paint) the same colour as the top coat. Paint it on good and thick, let it dry sand it off and apply the top coat. Works a treat.

Using up offcuts

I've been looking at ways of using off cuts and as I have a CNC I have been making a few bits and pieces in between framing jobs. I made this business card holder and thought perhaps members of the forum may be interested for their POS display? This one is made of two layers of oak with a layer of o...

Re: Sticking down an old canvas onto wood

Watch out for distortions in the canvas caused by pulling it off the original board. There may be areas that will not lay flat or will crease if forced flat.

I use a veneeer vacuum bag for this sort of job.
