Shop storage projects #8: Dresser build, side 1 is complete,almost

01-15-2017 01:18 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well spent one hour getting some things caught up….the second corner post was jack planed to remove all the saw marks, and the a Stanely#7c was run around a while..Until it was all flat and smooth. Clamped the new post to the old post, to do a bit of lay out work.. So I could transfer the dados’ locations better While I was down in the shop, and laying out parts.. I tried out the “new” bandsaw jig. Been having troubles doing resaws, so figured this could ...

Toy gun with working trigger

01-14-2017 10:42 PM by ShaunMeighan | 0 comments »

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

Shop storage projects #7: Working on the rails....

01-12-2017 11:40 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, last night, I snuck back to the shop…did a bit of chisel work. But wasn’t happy with the results.. And decided to “daylight” the mortise into a dado. I kept the waste piece, added some glue, and a clamp, and let it sit all night.. Then today, I removed the clamp, and worked on a few more dados. Nothing fancy to them, just a lot of chisel work.. laid out to match the tenon that will go here. Last night I had #4 and #3 done. This is for #2. Wide ch...

Shop storage projects #6: Working on the storage dresser

01-10-2017 07:58 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Muddle through a bit more with that Stanley #45…..wasn’t quite right. But.. I had these four to get done, somehow. Came up with the idea that IF I drilled a hole where the tenons will be, I could then attach the part to the side of the bench, so the fence wouldn’t hit anything along the way… needed to countersink for the screws. Tried a few more times with the 45… Things still weren’t quite right. Tenons were cut on the few blanks I did get ...

Shopmade Lutherie Tools #14: 2 chisels rehandled

01-09-2017 02:24 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I had two chisels without handles. The flatter one is from of old. It was from my dad’s stuff. It’s purpose when I was growing up was to pry open the old ‘extra’ refrigerator we had in the basement. The handle of the fridge had broken somewhere in my pre-history. The handle on the chisel was clear yellow plastic. The plastic broke some years ago when I was using the chisel to do chisel stuff. Surprise! It lived for some time in one of my tool boxes, handleless...

The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!

The Zen of Woodworking #8: The tyranny of numbers

01-04-2017 10:41 PM by BigAxe | 0 comments »

I have decided to build a simple dovetail box to store a set of Narex mortising chisels. I am retiring these chisels from service and decided they needed a proper resting spot.In addition my dust collection system just died so I decided to build the box using all hand tools.Now a simple box has 6 sides. This means I have to dimension 6 pieces of wood. Each piece of wood has 6 sides. Simple math tells me I have to true up 6×6 or 36 sides.Now a box has 12 edges. and each edge has 2 matchin...

Shopmade Lutherie Tools #3: Tiny chisel/scraper

01-03-2017 01:49 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Even though this is technically a chisel, it is used principally as a scraper to get hardened glue out of the small wells in a violin bow where the ends of the hair hank are anchored. I fashioned the blade of this chisel from the Phillips screw driver ‘blade’ of an old, low quality pocket knife. It was not a genuine Swiss Army knife, but a bad, cheap knockoff. The blades loosened up after a few years and the knife lived in my tool box for ‘just in case’. I general...
