Grandson's Coffee Table #2: Mortises, Beads, and other stuff..

12-11-2018 02:54 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Mortises…Jig was set up… I use the tenon to lay out the mortise…roughly centered on the leg… Easy way was to just trace around the tenon, but that leads to twisted holes, IF the boards more…so, I make two marks where the top and bottom of the mortise will be…go up to the top, mark to spots showing how wide, and where the tenon will be…squares to mark across the leg…used a marking gauge to mark the side walls.. Usual suspects as to chis...

Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 1 comment »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...

Outdoor table #5: Finishing the table top

12-07-2018 08:42 AM by icemanhank | 9 comments »

My first attempt at bread board ends by hand. It was tougher than I thought and I would give one end a 9.5/10 and the other sadly an 8/10 but I can’t fix it now it is together. Putting it down to a learning experience and more skills and sharper tools needed.

End Table, out of Ash #7: Mortises for the rails

11-30-2018 04:31 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hmmmm….Had 3 tasks to do….2 out of 3 ain’t too bad? First was make a little jig, to help lay out where the mortises will be….that way, the rails will be at the same height, all the way around….1/4” plywood… Hole to trace around, to lay out the mortise…one edge is marked outside….as this goes to the outside edge of each leg. The “X” goes to the bottom of the leg. Jig can be flipped over.. As need be. Once it is in...

End Table, out of Ash #6: Rails getting done

11-29-2018 06:17 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Cussing was at Marine Boot Camp Day #1 level….by the end of the day…..anyway, cleared off the tablesaw..had work for it to do. Those ugly, wavy blanks for the rails? Took two fence settings to rip the rails down to 1-1/4” width..or, about the same height as the saw blade can be raised to… Ripped the worst off one edge of each, to get an almost straight edge. Reset the fence to the final width, “straight edge” against the fence, rip to final width. ...

End Table, out of Ash #5: Mortises done, top trimmed, dry fit

11-28-2018 06:10 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Was a busy Tuesday. Mortises….at least the ones for the aprons are now done…have had questions about the jig I use. Just 3 pieces of scrap wood. A wider base, and a pair of rails. I tebd ti attach the jigs to the bench, and if there is any chopping involved, I will set the jig on top of the bench’s leg…no bouncing allowed. Rails came be reset, according to how wide the part is, wanting a snug fit. A Visegrips Finger clamp is used to clamp things into the...

End Table, out of Ash #4: Tenons done, mortises started

11-26-2018 04:24 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Yes, I do tenons first. I gave the tablesaw, and the bandsaw the day off….went Olde School today… Once all the lay out lines were done…I could use this saw to make the shoulder cuts. Just saw down to a mark…Saw is set square, and stays that way..Needed a stop block, so the tenon lengths would all be the same.. Then saw to the lines.. Got the shoulder cuts done….next the cheek cuts… I could just use a backsaw, or..grain willing.. Split off ...
