Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #16: week

First I sanded the whole front of the lowboy case and drawers to make them all even for the installing of the drawer fronts. After checking the front with a straight edge at many different angles to make sure the drawers ,legs and case were dead flat, I then moved on to both sides and the back. This was a ...

08-07-2010 04:31 AM by Jim Jakosh | 6 comments »

Random shop notes #5: Shopping, vising.

08-07-2010 03:38 AM by AnnaEA | 4 comments »

Got out on the town today, and picked up some small tools I need. Chisels, files, a 2 ft. level, a bevel. And I finally got around to taking the old blade off the circular saw my FIL gave me. I clamped the blade into the machinists vice I’ve got, gave the bolt a jolt of wd-40, and then went at it with a wrench. I’ll get some new blades later this month. I also found a nice local sawmill that will do small lot surfacing and carries local hardwoods; they’ll als...
