Big glue-up decisionMy last blog in this series left off after chiseling the datos for the bottom of my very tall ‘bucket’. The next step was a dry clamping before glue-up, and then I had to decide if I could do it all in one go. Glue-upApplication of the glue went so fast on the first half that I decided there would be enough time to do both halves before the glue set, so I went with the all-in-one-go approach. The two glued halves were placed on the bottom and band clamps ...
I only had one day in woodshop this week but i was able to router my lats and cut my tenons to fit my mortises my next job is to fit my short rails
Greene & Greene Magazine Rack - my "own" design #4: Stock choice and starting prep - discovered Peruvian Alder
So I went to my local favorite place to get some African Mahogany to start the stock prep for the piece. While I was wandering around (I’ve never once walked in this place picked up a piece and walked out) I saw a piece of wood with a very striking ribbon grain pattern. It actually looked a bit like the African Mahogany, but more of a brown tone. Turns out to be Peruvian Alder. Some of the boards have a pronounced ribbon grain with an iridescent sheen to the grain. So I’m t...
been a few days? A couple of glue ups did indded happen…. Second one was also done. Set them aside for now… And started to work on the seat parts… Sawn a curve where the slats for the seat will attach. Each one of these is just a hair longer than the other. Front one being the widest, and the back one the narrowest. There is a middle one. set up with 1” long tenons on the ends. This will do for now. Had resaw work to do, twice.. Used one of the...
So far today I had to recheck the final dimensions for the drawer. Good thing, my original calculations were off some. These dimensions have to be spot on for these Salice 15 inch undermount slides to work and fit right. I changed the height of the drawer parts to 5 1/2 inches. The sides have to match the drawer slide length so that is 15 inches. The front and back parts were correct at 16 1/8 inches wide. I have designed the layout of the dovetails. I will cut those tomorrow. I have cu...
Been using the sanding disk on the SS more and more with all the model making I’ve been doing so needed to get the cyclone hooked up to control at least some of the dusty mess.Wanted it to be a quick change over so here’s my out fit so far. I should add that I don’t have the newer sanding disk that will work with the newer SS’s saw guard.I bought my saw 2003 used and all the tools that came with it are for the table saw but for $400I’m not complaining. LOL ...
As the title says I managed to remove the cutter screw and wheel.Gently tapped the pin that engages the knife from the screw then made a tool to push the “keeper Pin” up in the frame to allow the screw to pass through its opening in the frame.Apparently I have maxed out the upload limit on this blog so I will put a link to a drop box file I can share.https://www.dropbox.com/s/lx4jfgzo6k6cxwn/20160523_185234.jpg?dl=0 Still hoping someone has a #45 with the tote removed and can s...
I decided to add all the project pictures I could find to Lumberjocks before I lose them all. I am sorry for the deluge.
One of the things missing on this site is making knife scales. This is not something I normally do but I bought my wife some knives that required scales and during the process, noticed that we had several knives where the handles looked like crap, were cracked, and even broken. Some of them had really good blades and some were junk (these were tossed). During this process, the knives that I bought from Woodcraft have really nice blades but the rivets were less than desirable, sam...
