Shop stuff #122: Making a new strop.

04-18-2018 01:20 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I have one. But it was just thrown together from scraps to test it out. Naturally it worked well, no surprise there, I now strop more than I “sharpen”. The problem with the original one is that it is too narrow for all my plane blades. So now that I am convinced of its usefulness, it’s time to build a proper one. I gave a bit of thought on a design that would be versatile for me and then made it. The first attempt was thwarted by bugs though, so I had to start over aga...

Bath Stool #1: Selecting the wood

04-07-2018 09:01 PM by Diego Cassels | 2 comments »

In this stage I choose the wood I want to use, usually I buy it, but this time I got lucky and unearth this beatiful “quebracho” wood from the backyard. Its a dark red and VERY hard wood. Its about 2” thick.

Well here is how I go around my projects. I enjoy this faze of the project. First a general idea of what I would like the project to look like. Then I look for inspiration from the web, general dimentions and so on. I found this, traditional japanese bath stool. This is FROM a google search.

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

So, for all my box making buddies out there, I thought this video I just found today would really speak to you, especially the hand tool purists. This Japanese woodworker steps you through his build from beginning to end, and it’s a fascinating look into some really interesting techniques and some amazing hand tool woodworking skill. Enjoy!

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #2: Clean a bench, install the til

04-05-2018 04:54 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, part 2. Instead of taking a nap, decided to clean house in the shop…. Lots of just junk in the way….other items just needed put away, finally. This “bench” used to be an old square table, somewhere in it’s history, it lost it’s legs. So now, it sits on a pair of sawhorses. This was the original bench when the Dungeon Shop first started up. Grinder and sanding center needed to be switched around. First, wire wheels were removed from the g...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #1: Start up, getting rid of the mess

04-05-2018 04:17 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, something a little different this time around. Had a bit of Pine leftovers.. Some fancy, most were not. I even found a 1×10 to add to the fancy stuff..1×10 x 4’....needed a way to make use of some of this lumber, rather than throwing it in the fire pit…hmm… Over-flowing with braces…this old til has been out-grown….6 spaces, for 12 drills? I think I could do a bit better? I could build a longer/wider til…..but where to set it? ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #18: Last drawer and aPIP

03-26-2018 02:02 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just getting caught up….had a few health issues over the weekend… Had a blank for the skinny drawer’s front, cut and fitted to the opening..needed to rip a board down to make it, and these three parts… And, with my usual luck..the two side pieces were 3/4” too short….made do, anyway… Front gets through dovetails, to match the other drawer. Saw a few lines.. Chop about half of one side’s pins, flip the board over, and pop the rest ou...

I made this tapered leg table to have a place to work, study and edit. The top is made of Sapele and the base is maple finished with milk paint. It was a fun project using a variety of machines and hand tools. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNId8i-sS3o

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #16: Catching up,2....case done, door start

03-19-2018 02:47 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, face frame out of the clamps. Stuck against the case, to mark out where to put a few screw holes at… These two came out, once the frame was laying on the bench.. Scratch awl to make a starter hole for the 3/8” forstner bit. Then drill a pilot hole.. Once all the holes were done, I moved the frame off the bench, and placed the case on the bench…Had an extra hole to fill. It just gets a counter sink. Bead of glue run around where the frame meets the case...
