Bridal chest #3: Cover and cedar

07-21-2014 08:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...

Lumber in the woods

10-24-2013 04:23 AM by pbyrne | 13 comments »

I am currently working on an extensive construction project.The customer asked me to clear some acreage blocking his view of the mountains. I gave him a break on the equipment price in exchange for any timber I remove.What I discovered were broadleaf maples straight and clear for 30 feet averaging 32 inches diameter, well over 12,000 bf in the butt logs. In addition, I uncovered a deadfall old growth Western Red Cedar log. What is left of the log are 18” x36” x 20’+ slab...

Spline jig #2: The box from the jig

12-29-2011 10:25 PM by Sanman | 1 comment »

I ended up with a very large spline after playing with the jig. No worries, this is my pallet wood pile to practice with. As far as I can tell, this is a pine box with cedar splines, top, and bottom. My first attempt at routing an edge, lot’s of burs on the end grains. What causes that? The box came out nice. I made 45 cuts and glued together with out clamps. I used tape and checked my square before leaving it to dry. It seems to sit flat on the ts. I worked...

Workbench Build #35: Endcap Part Deux....

07-26-2013 09:10 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

Now that the wagon vise is sorted out and functioning quite well I might add (am having too much fun with it right now tbh).. Last night after work (1am.. pretty sure my neighbors hate me right now) I decided to go ahead and make the 1” dog for the vise. Fairly straight forward. Sanded the 1” dowel slightly to give it a smooth fit (using the vise to do it no less :D ) Then cut to length, cut an angled notch at the top and then used my 1/4” chisel to cut a grove d...

Stickley High Chest #2: Drawers

01-18-2011 11:40 PM by Greg | 2 comments »

All the drawers have been cut, dovetailed, and glued. I struggled a bit with the dovetails. I used a dovetailing jig and started with an older router that I have. I finished a couple of drawers and then my router bit started moving from the center of the bushing to the edge. I had to scrap the drawer sides from one of the smaller drawers. Luckily, I didn’t screw-up on the walnut front. The particular router (1.5 hp Ryobi with plastic threaded height adjustment) that I started with doesn...
