  • DA71 created a new topic ' An Inquiry on Cedar' in the forum.
    Hello, all.

    Thanks, Woodwork Web, for having me in this fine space.

    Background: I'm one of those "painter by choice, woodworker by accident" guys. (Dime a dozen, right? Ha!) On rare occasion, the job requires me to work wood beyond scraping, filling, and sanding. In such cases, I like to make absolutely sure I'm using best practices; hence, here I am.

    Question: Is there a certain sealer out there that does "the best" job of priming cedar? (Unless I'm best-advised against it, I plan to use Kilz oil-based int/ext as I typically do for bare wood.)

    Context: I'll be replacing frieze boards, rake fascia, drip-edge trim and drip-edge fascia on a painted house here in North Texas. The material, S1S2E cedar (see attached photo), will be plowed to receive the soffit, installed with the rough side out, and finish-coated with acrylic latex. (And yes, I bought the cedar at one of those "home improvement centers." Be gentle.)

    Thanks for your time, fellas. If this forum is anything like the YouTube channel, I can expect the soundest counsel and very interesting discussions.

  • Glen created a new topic ' Bent lamination' in the forum.
    Does anybody have an opinion or advice on making bent laminations using 1/4" plywood or luan as a backer & veneering the face with 1/4" solid wood?

    Just thinking out loud. The edges would only show when looking up from the floor. I doubt the cats could tell I didn't use solid wood.

    My main concern would be the strength of the tenons where the curved apron attaches to the legs.

    Thank You one & all!!

  • magicsawdust created a new topic ' Free Wooden toy plans' in the forum.
    For all toy makers out there - free plans for making wooden toys.

    Visit woodworkingdownunder.com

    These are unique and original designs, not vintage plans.

    Designed for beginners with limited tools, using project timber.

    If all you have is a jigsaw and an electric drill you can make any of these toys.

    For the rocking horses, a router may be useful because it uses template patterns to make duplicate parts, and to "clean up" the jigsaw cuts.

    Hope you enjoy making these toys.
