Morris Chair #3: Framing the Base Bliss

01-14-2015 01:32 PM by Luddite | 3 comments »

13 Jan 2015 Past few days I’ve completed the leg blanks. Prepared the upper and lower side rails with stub tenons. Using a taper jig cut the top rails to match the desired angle. Cut and sized the front and back rails along with the seat support cleats. Once done with these I carefully marked each leg with the mortise positions making sure of their relative locations. Two lefts don’t make a right. Mortising was a long grueling smoking endeavor. At first I’...

One Board Furniture Build-Off #2: Well I Finished It!

05-03-2008 09:37 PM by Michael Hacker | 3 comments »

I finished my entry with only a few setbacks along the way! I entered my photos at 11:30pm April 30th and unfortunately i wasn’t able to shoot my photos as professionally as i wanted. I had planned on making a pub scene and having some friends over to break the table in with a few drinks and food. But my wife got called into work, my friends were distracted, and so i was left alone! More importantly i didn’t have anyone to help me move the table from the basement because i need...

Shop stuff #19: My new mitre saw

12-05-2015 01:59 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I signed up for email updates at the Bosch Tools website and a few months ago they send me a message to do a survey for them. I answered a few questions and submitted it and thought that was that. Well, low and behold a couple of weeks back I get a message saying I won a Bosch GSM12SD 12” Glide Mitre saw. A form to fill out for tax purposes and they told me it is on the way. Now, I have been a fan of this saw since I first saw it, and only dared to dream that someday I would own t...

Spring time is clean shop time

Hi All, Well I have put all projects on hold so I can clean my shop. That is why there hasn’t been any projects since the game boards. As I clean I am also organizing and possibly going to remove the carpet in my shop finally.I also figured if I am going to host a Lumber Jock picnic, I may want to clean my shop so I can show it off. In the process of cleaning so far I have found a few tools that I have been looking for. I am really going to organize the shop the way it should be. Whi...

Sander Rebuild #5: Next Step: The Disc Cover and Dust Trap

02-06-2016 07:39 AM by OldGuysRule | 3 comments »

Like I mentioned before this thing is so old Sears doesn’t have many parts available any longer. So I had to build something to cover the drive belt and Sanding disc. Once I got the disc I sat down with the manual that I downloaded and printed to see how the original was made. No way to duplicate the original but a close copy will work. First To cover the drive belt and give me a base to mount the disc cover. Next thing to do was build the disc cover with a dust port. I made...
