« Part 6: plywood day..meh Part 7 of Stepback Cupboard in Pine series Part 8: Part 2, the Sunday Follies »

Rough day in the shop….first trip did not go well, was making mistakes, could not concentrate on things…ran the Stanley 45 along the wrong edge…..hands were getting too close to sharp objects….closed the shop. Went back upstairs until the mind could focus on the jobs being done. Much safer that way. Did not leave any “Fresh DNA” on stuff in the shop.

Kept stewing about it all day kind of got me irish up…...was finally able to calm down, and focus that evening, enough to get a little bit done….

First off, I cleared anything that wasn’t needed to be on the bench….until just what I needed for that job was left.
Made a jig to act as a “plane stop”...

Where the part was flush with the edge of the bench, wanted clearance for the fence of the Stanley 45. Then added a stick to the end vise. I tighten the vise to “lock” the stile into the jig..
At least I can even use a smooth plane. Saw marks from where the company ripped a 2x down had to go. Edges were planed, as well

With the correct part ( this time) I could make a bead along that edge…then lay the stile flat..

Three cuts, to make one molding..

Repeat for the other stile….

Had to keep clearing shavings from the plane..

Since I was using a depth stop, which was also a trap that held shavings. Some even were jammed between the skate and the fence…..but at least it wasn’t cutting too deep. The smooth plane?

Just an old Stanley,type 10. Stiles were done, would need to reset the jig, as the rails are quite a bit shorter

That “blue ball”? that be a scratch awl, that I was using to clear the shavings from the Stanley 45. Was getting late in the evening…time to stop for the night…stay tuned for part 2, aka The Sunday Follies….

-- A Planer? I'M the planer, this is what I use
