Maple Chest of Drawers #2: Rails and things

07-27-2017 11:33 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Still playing catch-up…...rails.. First, needed to plane away the saw marks, and get them all about the same size.. As it turned out, the plank the main rails came from, was almost a 1/16” thicker than the stiles. Back into the vise they went. The Stanley No.4c was able to remove the unwanted stuff, fairly easily. And no tear out, even across a knot.. The top rail will wait for a bit. The bottom rail will need a single groove milled, the other three main rails ge...

Simple box to hold candy #3: Lid is cut...grooves and such

07-18-2017 04:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, I had gone out to buy a few supplies for the shop, Monday…. And, I finally found the parts for the Langdon Mitre Box’s stock holders…. Figured I could just slip down to the shop, and at least install them….something was calling … The box wanted out of the clamps….took a while to remove all of them… Looking like something the cat dragged in…top wasn’t much better.. Well, since I did buy a new 80grit belt for the sander&...

Simple box to hold candy #2: Grooves, panels, and a glue up...

07-17-2017 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Woke up this morning, decided to work on the Stanley 45…...decided to just hone the cutter that was in it. Needed to reset the fence. And build a jig.. One groove needed to be 1/4” in from the edge. Jig #1 was built to hold the shorter ends in place.. Long piece to keep thing still,shorter blocks clamp the part in place.. Takes a while…I do one edge, rotate the part 180 degrees.. And do the second groove.. once I had the two shorter end pieces grooved, I h...

Simple box to hold candy #1: Joinery

07-15-2017 11:05 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a request to build a little box to hold/hide candy in….I had a plank planed down to about 7/16” thick..or so. 6” wide. Has a bit of figure to it.. Needed to get five parts out of it..Mitre saw to cut them out.. You were expecting a motor? Ok, the 5 parts needed.. A panel for the lid, an end a front and back and another end. Got out the usual suspects.. I use one combo square to set depths, another to do a knife line across. The mortise chisel is to ...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Standing Desk of Cherry #7: Dovetails, just dovetails

07-09-2017 04:38 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Have four corners to do. Gave a hint in the last blog… This is Corner #1…..maple doesn’t like saws any more than Cherry does, it appears. I usually do pins first on these through dovetails.. Handsaw to cut, just an old Disston No. 4….. Then some chisel work.. I chop in from one face of the board, leaving a tab for support, then flip the board over… Chop out the waste.. Once they look good, I use these pins, and a sharp pencil, to trace out wh...

Standing Desk of Cherry #5: Assembly time

07-04-2017 04:22 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, got side #2 out of the clamps….needed a few things down… Bead work was done on the outside corner of the last leg…the one I forgot to do. Was a bit trickier to do it now..first was sitting on the bench,,,,second one? Amazing what a shop stool can do…Next was more pins.. Drill a hole, drive a pin with a spot of glue. coping saw to trim, planes to smooth things out.. Since I had the cross stretcher cut to size, I used it to lay out a socket or two…...

Tool Trek #2: Rockwell 28-3x0 Bandsaw w/3 phase motor

07-03-2017 04:34 PM by magaoitin | 0 comments »

The next auction purchase I made was a Rockwell 28-3X0 20” wood and nonferrous metal bandsaw. The X stands for X-Treme…no, no it doesn’t. I have read that the X series was specifically sold to government agencies, school districts, and technical colleges. And obviously that applies to this saw. There are stickers for a local School District and a Technical college.Nearly every auction I have purchased a major tool from in the last 18 months has been done sight unseen through on...
