A project in Maple #8: Hinges, rails, and dovetails

10-08-2017 08:12 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hinges I had bought for this project…looked a bit wimpy….needed something a bit …different. Some yard sale finds gave me a few hinges to try. One “leaf” was a bit too long, though. Grinder to remove the “excess” metal.. One is a before, the other three are after the grinder work. Sat the lid in the vise, laid out the locations for the hinges, drilled a few pilot holes…. Once all three were done, I set the lid aside, cleared a sp...

Making a home for my 45 plane #5: Finishing the exterior, and DONE!

10-08-2017 02:54 AM by CO_Goose | 2 comments »

Now that everything had a home, I removed it all so that the exterior could be finished. After a light sanding to round over the sharp edges, I applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO) for a minor amount of protection. The corners were also reinforced with 1/4” walnut dowels for a nice contrast to the pine. Remember that board for the base and lid? Well after the BLO hit it, it was obvious that it was not pine, but cherry, so that is providing another contrast to the box as well. ...

Making a home for my 45 plane #4: The interior, giving everything a home.

10-08-2017 02:35 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

Once the box was assembled, all of the little braces for the interior were next on the agenda. The interior was done by TLAR (That Looks About Right), no measurements, just grabbing scraps of wood at hand and making them fit where I wanted them to. This first picture shows one of the long rod holders, and the blade box hole. the long rods lean up against the end of the box, and two 3/4” square pieces capture them in place there. They do not go to the top of the box since that would...

Making a home for my 45 plane #3: Making the box

10-08-2017 02:19 AM by CO_Goose | 1 comment »

Making the Box itself is pretty straightforward. The Japanese style is basically a really big box joint, only three pins per joint. First the sides were cut to size, then the joints were formed using the table saw, sorry, no hand tools here. the pins were fine tuned with a chisel and the ends were chamfered using a small block plane. The sides used up most of the wide board that I had made, so I went off the the leftover pile of lumber and found a another board that I had picked up ...

Making a home for my 45 plane #2: Ideas for a Box

10-08-2017 01:33 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

So after putzing around on the computer for a while I settled on the Japanese style toolbox. There are many articles on them, but I settled on the style that Christopher Schwarz had a drawing for here: https://blog.lostartpress.com/2013/03/24/japanese-tool-chest-measured-drawings/And then made a box here:https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/326395 I also liked the box that Brad made here on Lumber Jocks http://lumberjocks.com/projects/196978I wanted the plane to stand upri...

Making a home for my 45 plane #1: The Beginning, a problem to solve.

10-08-2017 01:04 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

I posted this over in the “Stanley #45 – 7 forms of fun in 1! – And other combination/moulding planes” and had several requests to make it into a blog so that it could be bookmarked. On one of my rust hunting expeditions, I found this Wards Master Plow Plane, No. 84-3548. It is made by Stanley, and is a virtual clone of the later model 45 planes, the difference being the red on the adjusting nuts, and the word “Stanley” was ground off of the handle on t...

my crosscut sled with only one fence

In this video, I try my best to explain the process that I used to make this crosscut sled, which I will only use when cutting miters.This is one of the most important jigs in the workshop, and would advise anyone who hasn’t made one, to put this on the To-Do list.https://youtu.be/ynZK8CQtXu4

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #7: Topping things off

10-07-2017 01:16 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

I saved the best for last, or certainly the most challenging part of the project, the desk top. This is a close up of the top profile at the leg from Kevin Rodel’s desk. At first glance it doesn’t seem that difficult, cut some panels and glue them together, then cut a profile on the edge. I came up with a combination of steps using the table saw to cut the 45 deg bevel and then remove the remaining material with a 1/2 router bit. Unfortunately, wouldn’t work on tap...

Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #6: Drawers

10-07-2017 12:12 PM by EarlS | 1 comment »

Seems like there is always something that needs to be taken care of during the time I could be working on my wood working projects. I have to say I’m jealous of some of the other LJ’s and how quickly they can move through a project. Still, I have managed to finish the construction phase of the desk. The drawers are standard dovetail construction with a 1/4” walnut bottom slid into a slot 1/4” off the bottom edge of the drawer. Here’s my version of a dovetai...
