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...

Standing Desk of Cherry #3: Back leg work, a glue up or two..

06-30-2017 11:52 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, Dungeon Shop is kind of a stuffy place to work, no air movement, unless you count me walking around. Got a few “helpers” set up.. Had an empty bottle I could refill with water.. Set up a fan to get things cooler…..around where I will be working.. Mainly sitting on this. I had a couple extra long pipe clamps in the shop…too long. Tried to cut them down from 6’ to 4’....pipe cutter broke. Hey, we have those hacksaws just hanging around. G...

Standing Desk of Cherry #2: Leg work..

06-29-2017 12:29 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, lunch is over….spent the afternoon doing mortises to match the tenons.. The “Usual Suspects” were found hiding in plain sight.. At least they won’t roll off onto the floor. Clamped a leg blank to the bench, marked out where the mortise was needed. Chisels to chop it out… Dry fit. I trimmed a little off the end of the tenon, too. Rotate the blank 90 degrees, chop out the next mortise, and do another dry fit… Again, trim a little off...

Standing Desk of Cherry #1: Start up

Well ths may be a long blog, or just a teaser…Brought home a stack of “Good” lumber from a recent Road Trip. Helpped clean out a friend’s scrap pile.. Thinking this stack is mostly Cherry, Well, there was a 6/4 slab in there, somewhere. Did a bit of resaw work on the bandsaw.. Blade wanted to wander around a bit,,we have ways.. In fact, I used three planes. Each set a little differently. Jumbo Jack was set very coarse, the 0-7 not so much, then ...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #9: Door #2 installed...

06-24-2017 01:34 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, door panel came out of the clamps today. I hauled it up to the Pantry to make sure it will fit. needed to trim one end a bit, and rip about 7/8” off one edge. Set things up to remove all the bandsaw markings.. Used both of these jointers.. To get the edges straight and saw mark free. Used a small plane to do the glue line leveling And got the panel set just right to make a lip on the correct edge.. Just a plough plane….Stanley No. 45 Once I got the spur o...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #8: One door done..

06-23-2017 12:36 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And one to go. Last weekend, I was away from the shop for a while. Had some tools to rehab. I went and got a few supplies for this Pantry Project. Turned out I needed a couple more items, more on that later. Ok, plan was to rip one of the 1×10s right down the middle. Not enough room in the shop….6’ board…cut it down to 5’1”.....much better. Bandsaw to do the rip. Needed to cut another 1×10 to that 61” length. Joint an edge, appl...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #4: Top installed

05-30-2017 02:51 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just a quick catch-up…Got the blank for the top out of the clamps. Laid it up on top of the case. Marked how much to trim off. Set up the jig on the bandsaw, and cut for width. Framing square to mark the ends square, bandsaw to trim. Cleared a BIG spot on the bench,, And used the Jumbo Jack to flatten both faces. Block plane for the end grain, and make a slight bevel to the edges. Took a quarter out of my pocket, and laid out a curve on the front two corners.. Then u...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #2: Webframes....

05-24-2017 07:33 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, part 2. Those 1xs with the sawn edges, they were smoothed out and jointed this morning….made a bit of a mess on the floor.. Wanted to get the parts as close to matching each other as i could. Laid out for some tenons to be cut on the ends of the short parts.. Again, I wanted all of these to match each other. Set up a jig on the bandsaw, and then reset for the rest of the cuts. That “thing” sitting beside the tenons? Is a mortise jig I use. Attached t...

Well, been awhile. Rescued some old 2×4s from the backyard, cut out the bad parts, and then resaw the rest.Was a few boards, but not what I needed for this project. Seems the Boss wants a larger Pantry cupboard….. Trip to Menards for a few boards. 4 1 x 8 x 6', 3 1×4 x 6’, and a pair of 1×10s by 6’. atched up the 1×8s and glued them up into two panels.. These will be the sides of the cupboard. The two skinny boards used to be one of th...
