Knitting box #5: cutting the drawer tails

1922 days ago by Luke | 2 comments »

I’ve just finished cutting the tails out with the hand saw. Here I am working on chiseling the tails to the lines that I marked out with a marking guage. I had some troubles getting them to fit with no gaps and realized that I hadn’t chiseled enough of an angle out so that the edges fit snugly. After doing that they fit great. I have the faces of both drawers matched so that it hopefully looks like they come from the same board. I marked inside the joint with numbers so that I kne...

Things that just happen, break. #2: Where do you store your 'dowels'?

1862 days ago by Kirk | 4 comments »

Greetings, I have been storing my dowels in a 6”x24” paper tube stored in a garbage can. The garbage can collect everything from electrical box plugs, batteries, scrap brass or copper, waterheater burner, bent nails. The problem came to light when I knew I had a length of dowel but I couldn’t reach it. For a long time, I have thought about storing my dowels in a piece of gutter. So I built one, 5’ with ends. I haven’t put on a lid just yet, but that wil...

CARPENTER ANT DAMAGE TO OUR GAZEBO SHED ROOF #1: Discovery of the Damage, Demolishing old roof, & Rebuilding

1826 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 24 comments »

I opened the shed door the other day, & discovered water on the floor. I had just made a new shed door about a year ago. I thought the wind had blown water in from under the door. Then I noticed sawdust on the floor with drip marks coming from above. I looked up, & saw some funny looking white stuff coating the ceiling up in the corner above the door. The top plate of the wall studs also had piles of sawdust on it, & ants galore! Right away I knew I had some work c...

I found some walnut on Craig’s list and I picked it up today. Here is still in the truck waiting to meet it’s new home. I need to take 5 at this point. Here is grand daddy of them all. This will make someone a very nice mantle some day. Here’s a closeup of the grain on the massive Chunk. The guy I got it from was a very nice gentleman. I expected to see an older, retired, man but he was probably in his earily 50’s. He said that he just didn’...

Tablesaw Workstation #13: The End is in Sight (I Think)

1742 days ago by JohninSD | 1 comment »

Today I’ve finished fitting the tops to the workstation – they’re not screwed down yet as I just put a coat of Danish Oil on the exposed wood – probably not necessary but I like the way it looks. One minor snag I ran into when I started to fit the tops was that there is a sag in the middle of this thing – about 1/8” or so. I noticed the sag when the top left side didn’t sit level, the outer edge was above the level of the edge against the saw. I meas...
