I'm building a small simple boat however im stumped as to what type of ply wood to use and the thickness. I want to be durable so i thought of 4x8x1/2 plywood but the closest lumber seller is lowes and they dont carry anything of that size. So i figured i'd go to 4x8x1/4 only thing is its OSB utility panel wood, the only problem i don't know what utility wood is, i know what OSB wood is just not utility. My next option would be 4x4x3/8 plywood sheathing. So my question is which of those should i use or if i should use them at all?

Hi Everyone! I am currently working on a Basswood bridge project and my initial testing came to conclude that failure of my bridge was due to break joints! i took a look at the joints and the glue and these locations had barely seeped into the wood enough that it eventually broke off from weakness! I am aiming for my bridge to break within the sections and NOT at the joints. Are there metods like baking? soaking? the wood and glue so that the glue can seep in better? Specifics too please! I have seen people soak it, or "damp" i should say. But I have no clue how much to damp it or any of that! Acetone came up too.... not to sure though, how does this even work?! -Thanks noobie

Hey guys, Im working on a mini project to make some wooden keychains/items... the wood i start with is just some home depot paint mixing planks (unlimited supply lol), i cut them down to the size of a dog tag, sand them down and my plan is to stamp letters onto it with my letter stamping kit, the kind that punches into the wood, and give it to friends for fun, the result from stamping is really good (once i get my alignment right), but the problem is im not sure what is the best way to color the letters, i tried a marker, lets just say it didnt work too well lol, and im not really sure what i should be doing since this is a bit new to me also, once i finish it i plan to seal it in some protective coating so it doesnt get wet and get messed up, the wood is pretty soft as is. Not sure what i should use here either Thanks for the help and if u got cooler ideas i want to hear them too lol

I am looking of making a entertainment stand and a desk. I went to a speciality wood shop and bought 3/4 inch red oak plywood. I am having second thoughts thinking I probably should of gotten the 1 inch. Do you think I will be ok with the 3/4?

I am in the process of making a (hopefully) extremely durable walking staff... it is going to be used in very rocky and hilly terrain so I don't want it breaking on me. About where I put those parentheses earlier... should I have it as "a" or "an"? (random extra question brought on by wording or question)

It's in two halves. I have a power drill, a screwdriver, straws, some screws and some nails, a hammer, etc. I am not willing to spend over $10, unless the idea is really good. I also could probably break it again into smaller pieces. Both halves are rectangles, and roughly twice as long as they are wide. One is slightly wider than the other. I think it's pine wood. I am not interested in stuff that is decorational, as I have a little too much of that. I really need ideas! Thanks, Dinoclor

I've recently been doing research about how to make my own charcoal and I found that as a by-product that either wood vinegar or wood alcohol is made. One of the pages I found in looking for information was https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-Wood-Gas-Wood-Alcohol/ and it led me to believe that what is produced i alcohol, but more research seemed to say it was actually wood vinegar that was produced. The problem is that Everything I've found is conflicting as to which it is that is produced. My understanding is that the two substances aren't the same, but that there is some methanol in wood vinegar. What I want to know is which it is that is produced, and if it's wood vinegar, can it be converted to wood alcohol, or burned as it is.

I recently made a small project made of old wood that had been sitting outside to the point it turned grey. Is it still usable for a wood finish? The wood has quite some cracks in it and some holes. Should I use wood glue to seal the cracks? What about rotten wood?

I had a wooden retaining wall built last summer around a flag stone stair case in my garden. The wood on the retaining wall is treated wood and meant for ground contact. I see that after one winter the paint on the retaining wall is already coming off. Could I get suggestions on how to maintain the wood? Wood preservative/water repellant/wood sealant?

Hello, I'm new to working with wood, and I want to find a way to inlay pieces of copper into small pieces of wood. Can someone explain how I might do this. I want the copper pieces to be flush with the wood, and I like an element of spontaneity, so I'm wondering if its possible to pour molten copper into a crevice on a piece of wood. If it's not how can I at least get the piece of copper to stick into the wood? Thanks for any thoughts.
