Working with recycled timber #75: MC Fish tank Stand Shelf trim work and staining Pt 5

07-25-2017 09:10 AM by robscastle | 2 comments »

I had the opportunity to continue with the stand today We did a run to the hardware and bought stain and materials for the stand top and tank access top I then set to work cutting Quad to trim in all the shelves.To get these to have the fit I wanted involved using two saws and the disk sander for each part. A most fiddly and time comsuming task I must say, however I worked through the 6 shelves and the task was eventually finished. Almost all day consumed with the trim, there ...

Speedaway Sled Restoration

01-04-2015 09:32 PM by Lenny | 8 comments »

About ten years ago, while cleaning up my mother’s garage for her, I asked if I could take this old Speedaway sled. It had belonged to one of my younger brothers. The thought I had in mind was to one day restore it. It’s been sitting in my garage and/or shed since bringing it home. I finally took it out this past November and began the restoration. I really enjoy the show “American Restorations” that appears on the history channel. It is a spinoff of “Pawnstars”. Rick Dale, the owner...

Two Mandolins #9: Home Stretch

01-09-2015 11:19 AM by Texcaster | 5 comments »

I didn’t get any photos of the fretting. The fingerboard is stuck to the fret scale template with double sided tape. The notches in the template index on a pin in the mitre box. Too easy, this scale is mando/ banjo. My others are guitar 25 in / 25 1/2 in and bass 34in /35 in. My saw back bottoms out on the top of the mitre box when the cut is at the right depth. The fb edges are bevelled before being shaped with a 12 in radius sanding block. The fret wire is pre bent, then ...

08-08-2017 06:12 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Needed to run the jointer over them to get them all to match each other…Fighting clamps while doing this, is not fun… Thought I’d get a bit fancy with the wider top rail…. But, when I went the chop out the matching pins….they merely broke off….Grrrr Tried the sockets for the main rails.. Which meant lif...
