Simple box to hold candy #2: Grooves, panels, and a glue up...

07-17-2017 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Woke up this morning, decided to work on the Stanley 45…...decided to just hone the cutter that was in it. Needed to reset the fence. And build a jig.. One groove needed to be 1/4” in from the edge. Jig #1 was built to hold the shorter ends in place.. Long piece to keep thing still,shorter blocks clamp the part in place.. Takes a while…I do one edge, rotate the part 180 degrees.. And do the second groove.. once I had the two shorter end pieces grooved, I h...

I'm building a rabbet plane.

07-16-2017 10:55 PM by Jackdaw | 2 comments »

It is from “Making Hand Tools” by Harry Bryan. The body is cut from three inch angle iron. It is 1 3/4” tall and 3/4” wide.The back end will be shaped further once the handle is on. I can’t decide what to make the handle from. I may use some locust. The cap iron will be bronze as will be the adjustment knobs.

Working with recycled timber #72: MC Fish Tank Stand Leg Work Pt 2

07-16-2017 09:58 PM by robscastle | 3 comments »

I prepared all the timber for the legs cut them to length and began to dry assemble everything for checking of dimensions and overall workability. Because it recycled timber I had to select each piece so any defects and man made holes etc were not visible The two white scraps are the actual size of the horizontal spacers appearing at the top middle and base for the shelves.T = top F = Front # =Leg position No Arrow = next leg # then last lext leg No (just in case I cannot count) ...

Hope this helps and sorry for the confusion. Bob

Bed build #1: Catching up

07-16-2017 01:16 PM by Scout989 | 0 comments »

Okay, this is the first project I’m blogging, so please bear with me and drop me a line if you have suggestions for improvements. This is my second major build, and the first I plan to record at all. I am now building a California king bedframe for a couple friends of mine. I have no real idea what the style is called, but I’ve been mentally designating it “farmhouse style.” This bed is being built with poplar, as it was cheap enough that I could afford to replace ...

WoodChick #3: Pen #2 Explodes on the Lathe!

07-16-2017 02:27 AM by sfhipchick | 27 comments »

We have some lovely 11-ply pine plywood that we used to make my lathe table. With every piece we cut off, I’d stand and stare at how pretty the layers looked, and both of us agreed it would surely make a beautiful pen. So, we cut one of the pieces down to .75 x .75×5” and then went the extra step and stabilized it with Cactus Juice in our new vacuum chamber. That was our first time stabilizing wood so I was really excited to try turning this wood. That being said, I also k...

Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser #14: Back to work!

07-16-2017 01:30 AM by AlTriolo | 1 comment »

Hey lumber jocks, I think it’s been about 5 or 6 weeks since I’ve done any work on this build. Well, the drought ended today! While I feel like I accomplished much, there really aren’t many pix to show. Today I: 1) trimmed the back end of the keelson because the transom was not sitting squarely. 2) worked on leveling the frames (AGAIN). They went off with all the pulling for the sheer clamp work I did last month. 3) shaved the preliminary work done on the bottom of the...

Working with recycled timber #71: TAG fish tank stand

07-16-2017 12:49 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »

I went looking for the fish tank stand my son Toby and I made in Aprill, (acknowledging assistance from his partner Gemma too), and could not find it so I thought I had better do a quick post before other LJs ask where it is. (see conclusion at the bottom as to why)The actual tank had a access cover and light fitted which he wanted replicated. He had a stand he wanted to rebuild, it was part MDF which had seen better days due to moisture damage. The old Stand The old cover We reus...

Simple box to hold candy #1: Joinery

07-15-2017 11:05 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a request to build a little box to hold/hide candy in….I had a plank planed down to about 7/16” thick..or so. 6” wide. Has a bit of figure to it.. Needed to get five parts out of it..Mitre saw to cut them out.. You were expecting a motor? Ok, the 5 parts needed.. A panel for the lid, an end a front and back and another end. Got out the usual suspects.. I use one combo square to set depths, another to do a knife line across. The mortise chisel is to ...

The Table #1: We've Come So Far...

07-15-2017 10:12 PM by 85GoCards | 0 comments »

Where to start on this sucker? I suppose the beginning is as good of a spot as any… Around six months ago, I said, “Wife, I shall craft you a table fit for a Queen.” Well actually, it was probably closer to, “Yeah, yeah, I said I’d make a table when I get a chance.” I don’t have my 3D modeling program at work, so I relied on my crafty Excel skills to sketch up a rough design for the table. Now as much as I like to fancy myself a woodworker, I...
