Tool Tip #28: Jointing timber using a bandsaw.

04-14-2017 08:54 AM by robscastle | 7 comments »

I am making a laminated seat for a chair its 500mm x 500mm x 50mm.I do not have any timber that size so I had to make it by laminating and jointing a series of pieces together. Layer 1 is two pieces that will do the jobLayer 2 will be 4 pieces to complete the glue up. This is the raw material I want to use. Piece 1 and 2 are what I need for Layer 1 and piece 3 and 4 butt joined to start Layer 2. But after working out I cannot cut both of them straight without reducing the wid...

Parks craftsman planer

04-14-2017 12:34 AM by Dullchisel | 5 comments »

I just finished the restoration on this craftsman parks planer. It is a late 40’s early 50’s model. It took lots of time and effort but hopefully it will be worth it. The parts are also still available from DC Morrison in Covington KY and are great people to deal with, I personally went there and made sure they had parts before my purchase and they have 90 percent of the parts. Thanks for looking!

• Lynnsay's Prie Dieu #9: Mitred Breadboards

04-13-2017 11:41 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Mitred Breadboards - In order to run a bull-nose around the perimeter of the kneeling platform top, I thought it prudent to attach breadboards. Given that I do not want any end-grain showing, the breadboards need to be mitred. So … with my highly detailed drawing in hand …                    ... I get to work! The breadboards are simply 1 inch strips of 3/4 cherry with 1/4 inch x 5/16 inch grooves along one edge and a 45° mitred end. There are also mortises in the floor of the gro...

Morris Chair #3: Chair back, pegs & final dye touch ups

04-13-2017 04:59 PM by PPK | 4 comments »

Its about time I throw up a few more pictures. I’ve got my chair completely built from a chair standpoint. The upholstery is yet to come. I finished dying the arms and touched up the dye. The tenon caps got glued in. I made tenons on the stretchers (of the chair back) and mortised the uprights. They were dyed and assembled next. I pegged the joints on the chair back and on the rest of the chair. My method for making pegs involves a drill, s...

Help in inentifying my newest plane

04-13-2017 03:04 PM by EarlIII | 5 comments »

I recently purchased a plane on ebay and to be very honest I haven’t a clue as to the maker. I sam hoping to get some help from someone who knows more about hand planes than I do. On the plane body onj the mouth behind the iron the number 7 is stamped. Then behind the frog ant in front of the handle in this order starting at the frog is the letter U in a circle then made in the USA and then behind that is the number 8 just in front of the handle. I’m going to try and post some pi...

shop re start the new RMR #4: stop water penetration and band saw breakdown

04-13-2017 08:58 AM by DsRMR | 0 comments »

Hello again it’s been slow going in the shop still been darn cold out plus had some water control to get under control. This was the result of poor workmanship of the pole barn that is my shop atm. The perimeter of the buildings ground work was above the bottom of the cur-agate siding, with nothing sealing the outside moisture out. I dug down about 4 inches below the siding, pulled the lower row of screws out and layed 6 mil plastic down tucking it under the siding then replaced the sc...

Works for me..Got the top fitted, now for the bottom… Wider board means more dovetails to do…...

04-13-2017 04:30 AM by OregonWoodRat | 3 comments »

I originally found this guys video and could not tell very well how he built the dust cover but it gave me the idea and it is very much needed.Here is a link to his build so I can give credit where it is due.http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f13/im-building-belt-sander-46413/ He built his out of 3/4 ply. I made most of mine out of 1/4 ply. Here are what some of the parts look like before assembly. I did make it out of cardboard first so I could get the shapes correct. I assembled every...

Mongo: my first real workbench #6: The right tools for the job... even if you have to make them.

04-12-2017 06:45 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

I’m a big believer in having the right tools for the job; I’m a process engineer by trade and in my experience the analysis of any given task/process invariably reveals a substandard or nonexistent tool for completion… this bench is no exception. When my attention turned to laying lines for the legs and aprons where 90° was no longer my reference point, I realized I was going to be relying on angle/miter gauges for accurate layout. As I mentioned before, I’ve never ...
