Jointer plane to remove saw marks, and make the two match each other. Needed three rails.. Mitersaw to cut those to length….ganged all three up.. Shorter boards = shorter planes. Then I needed tenons on both ends of these three.. Didn’t like these wide tenons, so they were trimmed down a...

A Stepback Cupboard build #2: Shelves and webframes

01-04-2018 10:25 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, grooves were milled, needed some shelves made.. Used this vintage Skil saw 6” to cut down a small panel of 3/4” plywood. Router was reset. Needed this fence, set about half way into the bit. I clamped each shelf blank on end, and added a backer board. Plywood was the normal “Borg” stuff…and bowed a bit.. No problem, clamps to take the curves out, long enough for the router to work….also gave a wider area for it to ride on. The place the...

Hauled a few of the 4/4×6” planks to the shop….needed to cut a couple to length, joint the edges, and make a couple panels Hmmm, thought these were flat sawn..until I found the end grain. Quarter sawn Ash.. Used this old saw, to cut a few blanks to length.. Jointed the edges, and checked for any gaps.. Got one side into the clamps̷...

Hand tool workbench build #2: Wood selection -- and the verdict is:

12-30-2017 08:23 AM by SauceMan | 0 comments »

Hard maple. The above image pretty much sums up the reason for me. If you look at a shaving of each, you’ll see that the hard maple is much more homogeneous whereas the ash splits into strips. I’m concerned that those strips will end up translating to chunks popping off (or tearing up) from the surface of my workbench as I accidentally dig chisels or other sharp objects into it. Here’s an image of the two “candidate” pieces of wood that I cut, smo...
