Scobie Box #3: Gluing up and starting to add finish

12-09-2014 03:53 AM by icemanhank | 2 comments »

Gluing up was quite an interesting time with so many pieces to go together at once. I did the ends first then dry fitted everything to make sure all of the joints would fit up square prior to adding the glue and clamping (using the offcuts from the legs when clamping) I have added one coat of Danish Oil but need to get the lid on before I can finish the handles and add finish to them.

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Furniture Making Tutorials #6: A Case for Rabbets

10-02-2014 03:58 PM by BigRedKnothead | 44 comments »

There’s always more than one way to go about any joint. I thought I’d share my preferred method for fixed shelves and drawer dividers in casework. I’m sure you can rollover some of these ideas into solid wood casework, but I’m speaking primarily to the times we might be using cabinet grade plywoods. I should also note that routers and their partnering jigs are very effective for dados, I just like using a dado stack in the tablesaw when I can. Mostly because of fami...

Hand planes...found for a bargain, learning how to refurbish them... #2: Stanley #255 ?

09-17-2014 10:52 PM by MadJester | 13 comments »

Today I cleaned up the smaller plane from yesterday…still not completely satisfied, but it will do. I then tackled a vintage Stanley7”. Inside it is marked “C 255” and has an “x” and a “2” below that (it’s covered by the iron). Back has “Made in USA”. The blade is marked “Stanley No. 220 (13-220A) Made in USA”. Not sure if it’s actually a Stanley plane, but no matter…I have several this size that I...

Hand planes...found for a bargain, learning how to refurbish them... #1: Small unmarked hand plane refurb

09-16-2014 09:00 PM by MadJester | 12 comments »

I’m just beginning to appreciate the uses I have for hand planes now that I’m doing more projects that are not refinishing in nature…over the past nine months I’ve been collecting an assortment of different ones at yard/estate sales and clean outs…here’s the smallest one and I’m using it to practice with…I’m getting very small shavings, so I’ll have to figure out if it’s the position of the blade, whether I have it sharp enough...

Maloof Low Back Chairs #3: Scraping and Sanding

09-01-2014 11:17 PM by Dave G | 4 comments »

After what you saw last time I got busy with the cabinet scrapers. I used three, primarily. The most useful was a very flexible straight one to get into the chair seat and flex around the leg curves. I had to use a french curve scraper on some of the seat curves. And a medium flex straight scraper was pretty handy too. I sharpened them all at the beginning and resharpened the flexible one once. I spent 9 hours scraping. Then I started sanding: 180, 240, 320, 400, 600 grits. ...

My BT3100 Table Saw Upgrades

08-07-2014 05:41 PM by JD13 | 4 comments »

Years ago when I just needed a cheap table saw for misc household projects, I bought a Ryobi BT3100 at Home Depot. At that time, it was cheap and was one of the nicer ones for the money. Now, years later, as I am getting back into woodworking, I need a good saw that will handle jigs and such. I know this is a divided topic – some LOVE it, some HATE. I own one and I’m still on the fence. It only had a miter slot on one side, doesn’t have a nice flat cast-iron bed and ...
