Shop storage projects #19: Drawer #5, and a bit of Olde School

02-03-2017 02:59 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Didn’t want to bore anyone with the rest of the drawer building. Right now, there are 4 drawers sitting in the case, with a coat of Witch’s Brew as a finish of sorts.. Witch’s Brew is nothing more than an old quart can, into which any leftover stains and varnishes wind up. Instead of a shelf full of almost empty cans, I have just the one. Went i am ready to use the Brew, I top it off with enough BLO to mix things together. anyway, I worked off and on today, tryin...

shop re start the new RMR #2: a little progress

02-02-2017 04:10 AM by DsRMR | 1 comment »

So wish summer would come back so i could work out there without my fingers freezing. a wood stove would be sweet but…. no job means no money for luxuries. Been trying to get the cross-cut sled done for the new tablesaw. but climbing over things to find or gather what i need is frustrating as hell. http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag132/dgiacchino69/new%20shop/DSCN5708.jpg I’m in dire need of some exterior sheeting to close off the other 2/3 s of this pole barn then i would ...

Shop storage projects #18: Another drawer, and lessons learned..

01-29-2017 11:39 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, the first drawer needed a pair of handles installed.. Nothing fancy, just something I happened to have five pairs of. Noticed when I removed the drawer from the case, had a couple spots that needed more work, as the drawer was sticking, right at the back.. Plane is just a #4 sized smoother. Had a couple knots that wanted to bow the side out a bit, planed the spots down, and installed the drawer… Not too bad, now. lessons learned? Well, making things the correct si...

Shop storage projects #17: A drawer is made

01-29-2017 04:53 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

One down, four to go…Since I was in the area, I stopped at a Home Depot for a few boards…..At the prices they wanted, it will be just a few boards. I think I have enough to at least build three of the five drawers. So, did a bit of measuring, and a bit of crosscutting after I got home.. Wasn’t in the mood to use a handsaw, so this old, Vintage saw will have to do….went back upstairs for a while… Decided to at least test out a different “dovetail ...

Shop storage projects #16: Top is done....

01-27-2017 12:17 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

So, I am getting close to drawer building time? Ok, decided a 2 hour tour today would be about all this old body could handle….Started to build the frame for the top….had a few things to “finesse” first. One end of the long rail was a bit too thick…..marked out where to remove the excess wood….bandsaw to remove the worst and a plane to smooth things out. The mitre cuts were a bit off, re-did those, and made sure the rails matched each other. I f...

Shop storage projects #15: A back for the case, and...

01-26-2017 04:09 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And a frame for the top gets a start. Well, the other night, I snuck back down to the shop, meaning merely take the clamps off, and put the clamps away…...wound up doing a bit more. Once the clamps were off, I flipped the case onto it’s front. I used one pipe clamp to hold it onto the top of the bench. Didn’t want it to fall off onto the floor… Slapped the sheet of plywood in place, and marked out where to try the cuts at. Cordless circular saw was just...

Shop storage projects #14: Face frame rails are done

01-24-2017 10:55 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Decided just to carry on, regardless of the camera “issues”. Had to clear things out a bit, so I could rotate the case. It is sitting on both the work bench, and the power tool bench. Needed a way to chop dovetail sockets, and being out in mid-air wasn’t going to work. One pipe clamp to keep things in place. Laid out some tools, to mark out the tails for the dovetail connection.. Combo square to mark a line 1/2” in from the end, then adjust to mark a lin...

My dust colection set-up

01-23-2017 04:48 PM by Blake Haskins | 2 comments »

as woodworkers, we strive for the best dust collection possible, well maybe no the best but enough that our machines will work. I’ve seen many videos of people showing their set-up, however I haven’t found one similar to mine, so hear is my video.— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXC0T1fUDOo

Shop storage projects #13: Case work....

01-23-2017 01:25 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, I got all the frames done. Was stacking them up to get them out of the way…..and found a couple without the predrilled mounting holes done….PITA to do when everything is glued up. Got the first side up on the bench, and started attaching web-frames, using a framing square to keep things lined up.. Soon enough, had all the frames installed.. Then the fun part, I needed to get this mess OFF my bench, the second side ON my bench, and then the first side set on top. ...
