Shop Improvements #5: Lumber Rack Complete - Tool Additions

05-04-2016 09:03 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 0 comments »

I’m happy to report the lumber rack is complete. It’s smaller than I drew up, but I found that just two rows fits what I need for now. Those pics are in the updates I put in my workshop section. I’m beyond happy to have finally finished that part of the organizational undertaking. No more tripping on wood. Now to building the sheet goods rack? To be determined I suppose. I’m just excited to get back to the kids table and chairs I was working on before I got tired of t...

Another simple little box? #2: Glue ups, just glue ups

05-03-2016 04:06 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Some went nicely…some resulted in clamps flying across the shop….Ever try to clamp up a thin panel? Finally, to stop all the hijinks going on, used the vise to hold the two flat, and then added the clamps. Had rebates to mill along the bottom edges of all four sides.. The 78 to mill it, the shoulder plane did the clean up…except for my floor, though. No longer have Igor for broom work, I guess I get to do that. laid out the recess for the shoulder plane to sit ...

Another simple little box? #1: A start up, and some finger joints

05-01-2016 03:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Again. Well, a trip to Lowes produced a couple of boards….3/8 by 5-1/2 wide. One was 2’ long, the other was 3’. Laid out the two planes that will go into the box. Needed a length and a width..But, before too much got done, decided to clear the deck, and clean it up a bit…. Seems it has been abused lately.. Anyway, once I got a length, I could grab a crosscut saw and saw to a line.. Just barely leaving the line.. Hey, the original “Cordless...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...

Just a simple little box... #3: Grooves, a top, and more grooves

04-22-2016 12:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, was able to sneak downstairs to the shop for a few minutes this morning….figured out how to make a skinny board get wide enough to make the top of this box. Lengthwise, was twice as long as I needed, no biggie. Mark a line at the mid point, square it (almost) across, and cut the line. Then, I need to know how wide the panel needed to be…..a few marks later, a rip cut, and I had two pieces ready to glue up. Spread a bit of glue, rub the joint back and forth a couple t...

Just a simple little box... #2: The other corners get their turn..

04-21-2016 03:53 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, had a heart monitor on for a few days ( taped the electrodes on, and they got ripped off…OW!) Did a short rust hunt. Couple of coping saws needed new blades…spent $2 on each saw. Already had the blades. Stopped at the Green Borg ( Menards) and got a few pieces of hardware. new brass hinges, a new “Olde Brass” Latch, and a few bags of brass screws…..NOT phillips headed ones, either. I got the ones with the slotted, oval heads. Anyway…..got b...

Power Tools #5: My New ( to me ) Bandsaw

04-15-2016 11:27 PM by Jerry | 19 comments »

I grilled the Grizzly rep at length about the differences between the cast iron wheels and trunnion, and he said the cast iron was definitely superior in performance, especially in resawing, because the cast wheels being much heavier have a flywheel effect which keeps the blade moving through large pieces much more consistently, he also said the cast iron trunnion had much more precise adjustments than the steel. So I decided to buy this almost new used G0513X2 for $850.00 rather than a new G...

Curved Front End Table #4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer

04-09-2016 10:29 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...

Hi all I have purchased some beautiful Red Cedar and am going to try my hand at some larger joinery work. It is really lovely timber and was a very good price as the timber yard sadly is closing. This was a bundelled mixture of boards and pieces; The main piece for the top of the unit The larger boards I have cut in half and put through the thicknesser to get some lovely bookmatched boards to work with; I have sized four pieces for the legs and marked out the sha...
