Making a fireplace bellows

09-28-2016 11:09 AM by Jim Finn | 0 comments »

Instructions for making functioning and decorative fireplace bellows: Feb. 9, 2004 (Up-dated Sept. 2016) I have made well over sixty of these. I developed this process and pattern from a carved bellows I bought in Norway in 1984. The decorative inlay process is explained in another blog of mine. Wood can be any kind that you like to use. Needed is about 30 inches of 1×8. One half-inch thick wood will also work if you can find it. I have used Oak, Cedar, Pine, Waln...

Walnut Night stand #6: Tuesday was a bit better

09-13-2016 06:55 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Let’s see, cleaned the bench off a bit Except for a couple tools I thought I might need.. And brought this thing out of hiding.. Yep…that pine scrap did wind up glued in place. Wide chisel to pop it off. Got to looking at the legs….decided in the interests of it NOT falling over, a fourth legs was needed. First two legs were NOT 120* apart… Did NOT feel like digging another dovetail joint into the base with three already glued up. Used one leg as a pat...

Walnut Night stand #3: Back to wood working

09-09-2016 11:46 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well..I did find Mr. Gumption today…...and he put me to work, so much so, I was dripping on everything in the shop. Gave the lathe a rest for a while. Decided to flatten the top, and work on it until a circle was done….almost. I have a Stanley No.5c, with a Schwarz style cambered iron. Scrubbed all the high spots down to match the low ones, was a bit rough. I went at an angle to the grain, mostly. Then went with a slightly bigger plane.. Used this #5-1/2 as a ...

Before I could turn this post/column….Moved a couple stands around, moved a sheet of plywood elsewhere. Found a bench of some sort, removed all the junk ( well, almost all) that was piled up…...floor now has a footpath.. And ..lookee what I find.. I also found some tools for it.. So, got that chore out of the way. I got the blank out of all them clamps. Bandsaw to trim the neds a bit It is in the vise, until I could find out where the center is. Once found on e...

Walnut Night stand #1: Started up

09-08-2016 04:55 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, the Cherry box is awaiting a delivery this coming Sunday. There is a little bit of leftover Cherry sitting around. Time to cut the other slab down to size? This used to be 7’.....cut the top slab at about 38” long. The other two add up to about 4’...Decided to cut the long slab down a bit.. Took a lOT of candle wax to cut through 2-1/4” thick slab. What I though was another slab of Cherry, turned out to be… Walnut. This slab was 9/4 thic...

Cherry finger jointed box #6: 2 days of lid work

08-28-2016 08:05 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Managed to sneak down to the shop, the other night. Set up a jig to plough some grooves Called a K.I.S.S. Jig…..About the only way I could think of to hold these lid frame parts still, long enough to make a groove. Set up the Stanley #45 Wasn’t enough room in there for the sliding section, left it off. A #11 cutter was used. Candle wax to make things slide better. Nice Curlie Qs? Tried a second one.. 2 for 2! Ok, these were the “short” pieces. As...

Cherry finger jointed box #5: It is out of the clamps!

08-26-2016 01:47 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And looking a bit..rough. About like me before that first Mountain Dew of the morning… And each “face” looked like this. I clamped the box into the vise like this, and worked that side over.. A smooth plane to do most of the work…except around those pins One of the very few “Low Angle” planes I have. Went at an angle to the pins, to bring them down level with the sides. Then a palm sander to round the corners a bit. Then back to the #60-...

Cherry finger jointed box #3: Stanley got his groove back

08-22-2016 02:46 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I had the plane set up, might as well see what it can do You have keep an eye peeled, and watch the fence. Otherwise, the plane will wander off to the side. Candle wax helps the plane to slide along better. I got to the point that only the thumb was near the knob, three fingers were shoving against the fence. LIGHT cuts help, too, at least in this stuffFinally got all four sides done, and the grooves even matched! And, by cutting through only half the width of the “fin...
