Ok, this one will be a long-winded one….I managed to get the second side all glued up.. Took the clamps off this morning,,,,might need them later.Set up a saw on the bench.. As I needed a few parts cut up, to make web-frames… Extra hand to hold while I saw.

Maple Chest of Drawers #6: Raising Panels,bad Sunday, Good Monday..

08-01-2017 03:43 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, Sunday, I thought I could get something done…..got too distracted, tried to do too many things at once.. Built a jig to use for raising the panels…..I even got one panel finished ( I thought) up…..even tried a dry fit with the panel…. Did not go well….got a few other panels cut to size.. And a few needing to be cut down… Things were piled up, could not focus on one task….gave up, and closed the shop. Went out Rust Hunting, instead&...

Maple Chest of Drawers #5: Feeling groovy...

07-29-2017 03:05 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And a few other things…..worked in the shop for two sessions…..about 2-3 hours worth…Was trying to get the last two stiles S4S…...Jointer plane was taking a bit too long….hogged the worst off with the bandsaw, then used the planes to finish things up. Had one good edge on each, decided I could add a groove.. I tried to use the Crochet and leg vise…..found out this way was a better better….Made a lot of these.. “Noodles”? Got both ...

Maple Chest of Drawers #4: Stile number two

07-28-2017 02:38 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Finally caught up…..I wanted to at least get Stile number 2 done…..or close to it, before the thumb called a halt. This one did have a decent edge, just needed the saw marks removed.. But,,,the other edge needed a lot of work, which made a lot of shavings. I tried to use the Stanley No.8 , could not get a decent grip on it. Went with the 0-7 again. The good edge barely needed any work.. So I decided to use that for the groove. Tried it while still in the crochet...

Maple Chest of Drawers #3: Stiles,aka corner posts

07-28-2017 12:00 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, earlier, I had resawn a 4/4 plank into four “posts” ......not the best looking ones on the block…lots of saw marks, and wavy cut lines. I used these items to correct a few things….the metal yard stick is a Tinner’s Rule. Nice if you made tin cans for a living. Calls out every size needed to make whatever container you’d need….also makes a nice straightedge.. Has more waves than the Navy….the other edge was quite as bad.. Ther...

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&...
