Made my sticking board .. finally.

For my Six Board Chest, I really wanted to give hand cut mouldings a try.  It’ll be a simple one, so don’t get too excited.  I knew some day a project require the sticking board, but I just hadn’t gotten around to making one.  Now the only problem is to find a place to store it. Its an 8′ long board.

Its an easy project.  I picked up a 1×12′ piece of Popular from Home Depot.  I ripped off two 2″ wide pieces, glued and screwed each piece to one side and trued up the inside edge with my Veritas Jack Rabbet plane.  I also attached a bench hook strip to one end so that I can clamp it in my end vice while pushing it up against my bench dogs.  And Wa-la!!  A sticking board.

Oh, and I have on of Philip Edward’s rabbet planes on the way to cut rabbets with.  So here’s hopin’ this goes well.

  1. Well Done, she’s beautiful!! Can’t wait to see some hand cut mouldings. Did you partially sink a few screws in the end, so you can adjust them to hold your moulding blank? And is that your Philly plane already here? Or is it just a picture of the one you ordered?

    Good job!

    1. Yep! Screws are installed at the other end. The picture of the plane was sent to me by Phil. I’ll be a week or so before it arrives. In the meantime, I’ll be finishing up the feet and installing the hinges.
