That OddLots Ad #29: Final PIP..

10-09-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Before this thing is brought upstairs, insert and backs installed, and posted as a Project… Sanding was done. Then a coat of this stain was brushed on…I thought about using these latches for the doors.. As they match the rest of the hardware…. Was then informed by a Design Guru, that such latches are CHEAP, and the look sucks? One on every corner…..Let the stain dry a while…..happened to remember I had a wee bit of Walnut scrap sitting around. Firs...

Ukulele #1: The Uke

10-03-2018 11:18 PM by Fchilly | 6 comments »

I’ve begun a new project. This will be my first attempt at creating an instrument. I bought plans online, there are many different providers. I’m following Youtube tutorials for tips and tricks, and planning out each step in advance to prevent significant losses. Tools needed so far: -Band saw with high quality bladeFor ripping the side walls and front/back -Smoothing planeFor cleaning up tool marks on the front and back-Shooting boardFor making crisp glue lines-Table sawFor cutti...

Cleared the benchtop off, then cleaned out th...

Wooden Shackles #4: Accents Not Going as Planned

10-03-2018 12:55 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I had a thought (this is normally where my projects go wrong) and wondered if I could put some nice accents on my shackles like the real woodworkers do. Maybe some peg caps, or at least fake ones that make it look like less bland. I bought a selection of plug cutting bits and tried the 3/8” one to make small circles. I used a 3/8” inch forsner bit to make the holes … The problem came when I discovered the 3/8” plug cutter doesn’t in fact cut 3/8” ...

Wooden Shackles #3: Production and Practice

09-30-2018 01:28 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I decided to move forward with the styles and designs I’ve made up so far, stained them and I’m letting them dry at the moment. I chose to experiment and stain one set with PVC primer which is purple, I was surprised how well it worked! As a choice to try and do something a little more complicated I drew out a rounded set and cut them on the bandsaw, a tool I was always nervous about. But after sanding and tinkering I’m happy with the result. The plan...

That OddLots Ad #23: Drawer get glued up..

09-29-2018 10:08 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Giving it a test drive. Electric Fireplace insert…Just like the “Prototype” Those “Drawers” were fakes… So, design was changed a bit. case grew another 6” in height, and 4” in length…keeping the 16” in depth. The fa...

That OddLots Ad #22: Door hung, drawer started..

09-28-2018 03:24 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, spent 3 hours of shop time yesterday. Seems to be about average amount of time I can spend in the shop at a stretch. Long time ago, an 8-12 hour stertch was being done. Them days are long gone. Anyway, the door glue up came out of the clamps yesterday…needed a bit of trimming to fit.. Both edges had a slight bow to them…Stanley #6c flattened that out. one end was a bit out of square, trimmed that , as well. Hinges…was having issues with the cordless dr...

That OddLots Ad #21: Panels are done, glue up made, next?

09-27-2018 03:41 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

There are two things that making a raised panel with hand planes produces…...lots of sweat, and.. This is about average for one panel….heart monitor was having trouble staying stuck to me. Managed to get the last of the panels made, and fitted….then spread some glue around.. While this in not going to be a new workbench….I can get some use out of it. Frees up space on the bench.. Hmmm…in theory? Rather than do 1/2 blind dovetails on the drawer f...

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...
