Homemade Picnic Basket – Scrapwood Challenge ep24


Scrapwood challenge scrapwood challenge its scrap its crap its firewood but some of the wood is good I’ve cut all my strips with a few extra ones They’re all planed on one side and they’ve still got the bandsaw marks on the other side So now I’m going to put them through this very crude thickness jig for my belt sander Put those through they’ll all come out the same thickness and it will smooth the other side I’ve used the jig in a couple of past videos, so I’m not going to explain it here But if you want to see one of those videos then click on the link above I’ve soaked half the strips overnight and the other half I’ve kept dried These are going to be glue laminated together to make the handle and the top rim But before I get on with making the basket, I’ll just take a moment to tell you about a new feature I’ve added to my Wix built scrap wood challenge website to help you guys interact more and become part of the scrap wood challenge I’ve added a forum to the website You’ll be able to share your own projects share ideas for future scrap wood challenges or any other ideas You may have to improve the scrap wood challenge It’ll be great to see you there and to see what you come up with Adding the forum couldn’t have been easier. It integrated into the website flawlessly If you don’t already know Wix is an online website building platform that allows you to build professional and highly customizable websites using drag-and-drop tools whatever your website needs Wix has you covered there are hundreds of templates for business blogs Portfolios and any other website you can think of it’s free has a reliable hosting and with the drag-and-drop editor even the most inexperienced user can build a Professional site that’s unique and personal if you’d like to build your own website, then go to wix.com/go/paskmakes or click on the link in the description and Thanks to Wix for sponsoring the video and supporting my channel. I was hoping that was going to work, it hasn’t but I have another idea to try next I’m not sure I’m doing this the best way I’m just trying to work out a system I’ve put a few in the ends here just to hold those together NowI need to join the two ends up by putting the sides in so if I tuck a piece there Underneath and work that through and then I’ll put a dab of glue in the ends but before I do that, I need to trim a little bit off there and then you won’t see the join I want the ends of the basket to angle out like this So now I need to start doing these strips here to the side pieces. So it keeps that structure I’ve just put these there to see what it will look like, now I need to put a bit of glue on there It’s not real pretty in there but using weights and a bit of tape I’m gluing those down and it should all work out I’ve got a system going now. I’m just doing one at a time clamping them in place giving it ten minutes and moving on to the next row It actually gets easier the higher you go and it’s actually starting to come together it’s far from perfect but, it’s sort of working I need to make two handles I’m going to laminate them together the same as this rim and they need to be a bit wider than the rim as well So rather than make it a new form, I’ve packed it out with some cardboard I’ll put some packing tape around it and then that should be good to go and The handle I can do one either end as well That wasn’t the best glue-up it was a bit of a wrestle but fingers crossed it works out The handles could have been better But overall I think it turned out pretty well considering it was made with a bunch of short pieces of scrap wood Anyway, hopefully you enjoyed the video.
