10-06-2018 02:18 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Weather was ugly outside….sun would peek out, the goes and hides while the next rain cloud comes by. Pulled up to the house today…van load of groceries, and a replacement TV…soon as we started to unload the van..it started to rain..hard. Finally get everything into the house, and THEN the sun comes out…grrr Decided to see IF the door was ready to install….carefully removed the clamps…no creaks, no loud cracking noises..Placed the door in the leg vise...

Electric Fireplace insert…Just like the “Prototype” Those “Drawers” were fakes… So, design was changed a bit. case grew another 6” in height, and 4” in length…keeping the 16” in depth. The fa...

That OddLots Ad #22: Door hung, drawer started..

09-28-2018 03:24 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, spent 3 hours of shop time yesterday. Seems to be about average amount of time I can spend in the shop at a stretch. Long time ago, an 8-12 hour stertch was being done. Them days are long gone. Anyway, the door glue up came out of the clamps yesterday…needed a bit of trimming to fit.. Both edges had a slight bow to them…Stanley #6c flattened that out. one end was a bit out of square, trimmed that , as well. Hinges…was having issues with the cordless dr...

That OddLots Ad #20: More mortises, and a few panels

09-26-2018 04:12 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Another day closer to this thing being …..done. Laid the second stile against the first one, square to mark where the matching mortises will be…bad sign, that is not a shadow in there. I made a curved chisel last year, to help clean the bottoms of mortises,,,,today, it chose to snap the first 1/8” off….grrrrrr. Got the next one done, without breaking anything else.. Got the middle one done, turned things around, and chopped the last two…dry fit, th...

That OddLots Ad #19: Tenons and mortises, and a short day

09-24-2018 09:23 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was still sore from the day before. Tenons were done, at least on the rails for this door…hope the other door is easier….Needed to notch the top and board rails’s tenons a bit. Called a Haunched Tenon. Since the stiles have that groove, the little “tab” will fill that, and still leave a bit of a tenon…Next, get set up to chop a few mortises….need a jig.. Just three pieces of scrap pine….Spaced for a slip fit.. Mallet to bang the p...

That OddLots Ad #10: A tale of three tasks to do

09-14-2018 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I set myself three jobs to do today…the second end panel needed a rebate made, to house the plywood back. Once that was done ( task #1) I could install both end panels onto the “mainframes”, and get rid of the clamps holding things together. (Task #2) and finally, needed to build a pair of frames to use with a drawer, and install those (task#3)........Got the rebate milled.. Unclamped the panel, set it in the leg vise, use the Wards (Stanley)#78 to plane the rebate&...

That OddLots Ad #7: Bottom frame and the dividers

09-11-2018 03:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Monday..normally the shop is closed. However, sitting around the house doing nothing gets BORING…makes a great motivator to get something done. Too wet for yard work….might as well head to the shop..Bottom frame needed built. I have a way of cutting mortises on the ends of a board..I use the tenon to lay out for the mortise Then I use a backsaw at an angle, to saw as much as I can….even dragging the toe back out of the cut a few times Then a mortise chisel tha...
