Box Making #8: Boxguy Big Als Box frame commences

05-21-2018 04:04 AM by robscastle | 11 comments »

I started off the frame of the Splined Box No 1 in honour of Big Al’s inspiring work. I used a combination saw only this time … along with a few jigs you see in the pictures. I marked out the timber to get the best bookmatch I could That meant using both pieces of the timber as I wanted the knot feature displayed on the front and back so I had to sacrafice the material reserved for base of the box to do this. So a redesign on it will come later, not sure just what to do j...

This is a re edit of a video I did last year. The original was over 45 minutes long and I wasn’t happy with it at all. This one is only about 10 minutes and covers milling the slabs out of the tree with the chain saw…...freehand. View on YouTube

Building a Modern Mitered Waterfall Grain Bench

05-20-2018 06:14 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

In this build I’m making a midcentury modern walnut waterfall bench with miter legs, where the grain flows around the miter in a continuous fashion. The bench is 8ft long and 2” thick. I had to get 12 ft long boards to keep the grain continuous, so I got my workout building this one. Watch the video or read about it belowI’m building a mitered modern waterfall benchThe bench is going to be 18” wide when finished and I wanted to limit the number of boards I had to glue up so their won’t be a...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #2: Joinery work, part 1

05-20-2018 04:10 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Yep, part one….otherwise this episode will be too long of a read….Need to chop/mill/ cuss places for the rails to sit.. Once I knew where the “top and bottom” of the joint was…mitre boxes made the square cuts….then this vintage saw .. Was set to the required depth of cut, and made a lot of cuts… Ever wonder why some chisels are called “Beaters”? Old wide chisel, drive it down, the beat on the side of the handle…to pop all...

Well, for me. this is a Plan. Needed...

Workshop ideas that failed #3: Workbench build and rebuild

05-20-2018 01:39 PM by oldguy2 | 1 comment »

Hi again. Lets learn from the past and mistakes. Image number one is the current improved workbench, with probably features I think I like. such as. size 48×28, maple top 1.5 thick, vise, casters on base, shelves. and should have one or two more features. image 2 was the bench I had for years, it was great..oops..tool well deep enough for a screw driver, sturdy two people could stand on it, size 52×29…I resized it to make Adirondack chairs and a 3 inch board ...

The new family member #1: There she is

05-20-2018 01:00 AM by Mark Wilson | 12 comments »

The instructions said that setup would require two people. It’s not true, really. I thought the whole while about the guy in the video who was moving 16T blocks around by himownbadself using levers. Aside from asking O.D. (Old Dad) to take the nuts off the bolts and hand them to me while my hands were full, I got this behemoth out of my buggy and assembled and inside alone. Yeah, We bad. All that and a jar of pickled pigs feet am I. My back’s wasted, but, there it is and there you have it. Le...
