Tales from the Ginnel

Have you tried knocking up an internal frame out of Unistrut and epoxying the wood to that ? That ought to hold it round the edges and if you’re worried that it might bulge or dish in the middle you could fasten a stiffening cross-member made out of an offcut onto the back.

I’ve just accidentally discovered that there’s a word for this - you’re a rhykenologist. It’s an actual Thing :open_mouth:

Even have a facebook page… https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=rhykenology%3A%20the%20study%20of%20wooden%20planes

An Excellent word for the day


#166

Jeez - you’re up to the Rs already and it’s only the 11th ?!

From the Greek rykane meaning wood planes


#168

Oh, I don’t need a special date to be up to the Rs…

First thing I thought of reading that was some sort of activity involving @Penance and a bottle of rohypnol.


#173

I’m game if you are.

A little bit of progress on my white plinth, should be there or there about come Jan.


#176

I’m liking where this one is going


#177

I’d like it even more if it was going in the post to my house.

Bit of a quick n dirty one to get me going with the new toy. Used an existing Mahogany frame, a top plate made from an old spare layered ply shelf finished in Oak, infilled the lot with some Oak off cuts and the base was made from a couple of pieces of Birch ply. Popped a bit of damping between the base and the Oak infill. . Soundboard is an old aluminum one I had knocking around, fitted some Track Audio feet and bingo, away we go.

Will now have to engineer the full on plinth for a 401, for now this is rather good. Top job on the 401 Matt.
