Joinery Bench #16: Joinery bench top 99% completed. Now to start working on phase 2: the base

03-10-2018 07:17 PM by Holbs | 2 comments »

Whew. I’m very glad I decided to build a joinery bench as a learning experience before tackling a full size Roubo work bench. Lots of mistakes and learning how to correct (to a point). Hopefully, not so many mistakes when it comes time for the Roubo.I used my #8, #5, #4, low angle, and scrub plane to flatten the top to a satisfactory level. I am still debating on leaving all visible gaps as a testament to my error prone ways for future projects, or not. Some sanding, BLO or shellac,...

Hi everyone, Has anyone here had any recent dealings (post Jan 2018) with placed an order with them on 02 Jan this year, paid in full but my order still shows up as “processing”.I’ve e-mailed Stuart Tierney twice for an update(at 6 and 8 weeks) and received no reply. After 10 weeks and no responses I e-mailed telling him to cancel the order and refund me, but still no answer. The site doesn’t give any clues as to what might be going on ove...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #11: Top is done, case assembled

03-10-2018 03:07 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Worked in two separate sessions yesterday….had a morning “shift”, a trip to get a CT Scan on the head, then when we got back home, an evening shift….Morning stuff:Top was removed from the clamps, set aside for a while. Ripped a few 1×1s from the leftovers…needed to build out the drawer runners, for the drawer to slide on….also needed guides to keep the drawer centered in the opening… A bead of glue and a screw. Both are attached to the webf...

New Home Workshop #10: Fun Addressing Another Little Annoyance

03-10-2018 12:45 AM by builtinbkyn | 23 comments »

Most of the brad nailers, staplers and pin nailers I have didn’t come with their own case – the majority of the Porter Cable – and they’ve been floating around the shop with no real home. So today I started a little project to get another woodworking fix lol Cut some dovetails to make a frame and mounted the guns to give them a handy home. I may or may not make a door to enclose and protect them from dust/chip accumulation coming off of the lathe, but this is cert...

Shop Notes #11: A Productive Week

03-09-2018 08:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Getting my resaw blade in place really opened the floodgates this week. I finished gluing up and planing my mid-century modern boards. I also finished up some leftover chaotic pattern boards that were still hanging around from the holiday rush. By mid week, I was looking at a stack of some 17 cutting boards, ready for sanding. The chaotic boards were made 1 1/2” thick and haven’t sold well in that size. As a test, I sawed one into two 3/4” boards and ran them through ...

My bandsaw miracle

03-09-2018 06:27 PM by stefang | 19 comments »

Best Bandsaw advice?There is a lot of bandsaw information out there. Many ‘experts’ and lots of contradicting advice. Why is that? Well, I think it is mainly because most of us who own and use bandsaws are generally not all that satisfied with the results we get with them. This blog is more philosophical than tutorial, but it might provide some insight if you are frustrated with the quality of your bandsaw cuts. So what do most ‘experts’ agree on? Everyone seem...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #10: Catching up, part 2,making a top panel

03-09-2018 12:16 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, got the 1×8 x 8’ plank to the shop, somehow….had the bench cleared off, and ready to do a bit of work… Saw was needed to make a few cuts….needed three pieces 27” long…lay out a cut line.. Making sure the line was hanging over the end far enough to miss the bench vise…. Was trying NOT to include this into one of the pieces.. But, to get rid of this ugly thing, I had to use it’s little brother.. We have ways…..the fir...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #9: Catching things up, face frame installed

03-08-2018 11:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Amongst other “chores”....Doctor Visits, VA paperwork, the usual distractions… Anyway, I got the mortise and tenons done this week on the face frame…even did a glue up.. Had to cut a bit away, so the beads can wrap around the openings.. Will need a little clean up. Let the frame sit a day….then started an install.. Test fit to mark where the counter-bored screw holes would go….then drilled both the counter-bores and a pilot hole at each mark....
