RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Argh! Got completely sidetracked today, and totally forgot about posting until right now, as I was getting ready to head for bed. Duh! Lol. Oh well, as Scarlett used to say "I'll deal with it tomorrow"...

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I went ahead and planed the other side of these, so both sides are now nice and smooth. They are just a touch under 1/2 inch thick. Then again, maybe just over 7/16 inch thick, depending on how you are bent. Lol. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedcedar7.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

These next 2 pics are of the same board. Again, you can see the difference in appearance by just flipping the board over. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedcedar5.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedcedar6.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

These next 2 pics are of the same board, but it is just flipped over. You can see the one side has more heart wood than the other side. Depending on what you're looking to accomplish visually, either side would be acceptable. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedcedar3.jpg http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedcedar4.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I only ended up with one board looking like this. Bunch of tiny holes in it, here and there. Provides a little "patina". Lol. Or not, depending on use and your view. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedcedar2.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here's something you will run into at one time or another if you are planing rough cut lumber. This pic shows the area along the toop edge, where, after running this through the planer, some of it has not been touched. Fortunately, this was after the first pass on this side of the board. After running it through again, it cleaned that right up. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedcedar.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Get rid of those UPC code tags in the end grain. If the staple is in crooked, you could end up hitting it with your planer. There goes an expensive set of planer blades. You mean like this? Lol. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedcedar7.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

You may remember a few weeks ago, I compared 2 different finishes on a piece of wood, that was glued up of several different species. After sitting for a little while, here is what they look like. The lacquer is on the right side, and the water based finish is on the left. Personally, I like the looks of the lacquer, instead of the water based finish. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/comparefinishes.jpg I like the way the grain pops in a couple of the ones on left side. The stuff on the left is the Minwax Polycrylic. Since it's water based, the first coat may "raise the grain" of the wood a little bit. For best adhesion, after each coat dries, it's best to give it a little sanding, before putting on the next coat. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/polycrylic.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Unfortunately, planing a stack of lumber takes more than 10 minutes. First of all, it takes a few passes through the planer to clean things up. We're down now to about 1/2" thickness. Only one side is planed, and I haven't decided on whether to do the other side or not. That would bring it down to about 3/8" thickness. Since these have all been run through the planer, they are all the same thickness. As long as the back side is used where it won't be seen, it's not a problem. I'll have to think on it a little bit. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/pileofplanedcedar.jpg It all depends on what you are supporting the back side with and how far the supports are apart. 3/8" would make the counter top lighter and with the supports spaced maybe and I am guessing 12" apart, I would think it would be strong enough. If it were planed, it would be a better surface to top coat and guarantee proper coverage with less chance for pin holes in the finish. Of course a 1/4" of Epoxy would cover the rough cut marks and prevent moisture penetration. After spending this much time on time on this project, I don't think an extra 10 minutes per board is that much. This looks like a labor of love project and not something that had a drop dead time line to it. This is just a project with a pre determined outcome. No formica on the counter tops. No, el cheapo wood used for cabinet faces with a vinyl/plastic wrap. You know, things like that, which annoy me and my wife. So, we'll just keep plugging along a step at a time. When it's done, it's done. Whenever that its. Lol.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

While planing the stack of cedar lumber today, I took a picture of one of the boards before planing. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/cedarunplaned.jpg Here is the same board after running it through the planer. Quite the difference! http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/cedarplaned.jpg

Here's a pic of running a cedar board through the planer. Wahoo! Look at the chips fly!!! http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planingcedar.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I just found this on Harbor Freight's website, in case any one is interested. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planersale.jpg As you can see, the coupon is only good until April 5, 2020. No, I get nothing out of this - just letting you know.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here is a closer pic of the see-saw pattern I used when using the reciprocating saw. First a few inches down one side, then a few inches down the other side, until finished. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/resawedblackwalnut2.jpg Overall, even though it's not nearly as nice as having a large band saw to slice this in half, it did do what I wanted it to do. Like I said earlier - proof of concept. If you don't have or can't get to the larger tools, this will work, by working carefully.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Here are the bookmatched pieces of walnut that I cut in 1/2 with the circular saw, and then finished with the reciprocating saw. While not perfect, it cut close enough to the center, that the planer will clean up the imperfections, and leave a nice flat surface to use for the counter top. Wahoo! http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/resawedblackwalnut.jpg

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Well, it's apparently that time of the year again. Early this year for our area, but I mowed the grass for the first time today. Way earlier than usual. Here's a pic of another piece of 2" black walnut that I finished planing both sides. This one is 11.5 in wide. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/planedblackwalnut2.jpg One thing to note about the Bauer planer. I am getting close to the max width with this piece, and as expected, it's heavy. Because of the weight of the piece, as well as the extra friction on the bottom, after one side has been planed flat, the plank needed a little help from me to get it to go through the planer. I could have waxed the plate on the bottom, which would help it slide easier, but some of the wax would transfer to the board, which could cause problems with applying a finish to it, so I did not do that. A sheet of teflon would also help, but, currently, I have none. The other thing that didn't help this, was the light cuts I was taking, (1/64"), so there wasn't a huge amount of pressure from the feed rollers. Trying to cut too deep, while helping to feed the boards, would strain the motor, so it's kind of a catch 22. Overall, I am still happy with the planer, as I don't expect to do too much planing of stock this thick, and this wide. Another nice touch on the planer, are the 2 rollers on the top of it, for passing the stock from one side to the other. That works nicely. Overall, so far, I am still pleased with the planer and it's performance. It's a light weight machine, and for lighter work, it works just fine.

I found a new graphic and color scheme for the side of the moho! What do ya think??? http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/newmohographic.jpg LOL!!!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Hmmm, a carpentry repair job in the middle of tim buck two. So, that means you're carrying an uncut 2"x 12" around with you??? If that's the case, cut it before you leave. Well, maybe someone found a nice piece of driftwood by the sea while boondocking. Number of different scenarios. Just a proof of concept, that's all. Obviously, nothing like having the right tool for the job, but, sometimes, using what you have will work, also.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

After cutting some of this in 1/2, I stuck a hammer in the top, in between the halves, so I could take a picture and show the daylight in between the 2 pieces. Soooo, it actually works. A chainsaw would also work, but chew up more wood in the center, while the blade with the reciprocating saw is about the same width as the circular blade in the little Ryobi. http://paddleupstream.com/mohorebuild/resawingwalnut7.jpg If I used a circular saw with a deeper cut, then the reciprocating saw would take less time, because it would be cutting less wood in the center. If I used the table saw, I could cut a good 3" on each side, which would only leave a little over 3 inches in the center to cut, which would not take long. So, we have proof of concept here. It is possible, although not at fast as running it through a single cut with a band saw.
