Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Aprons and Legs

11-16-2017 02:15 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Guess I forgot to post this one, my progress last week on the table base. Using my shop made taper jig, I tapered the insides of all 4 legs and started cutting the cross laps in the aprons where they meet in the legs, everything went very well, aprons squared up nicely and fit the legs well. I’m happy with how sturdy everything ended up, almost no movement in any direction even in dry fit. I am waiting to glue it until I decide how I will slot the inside face of the apron for the table top...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #5: Breadboard ends

11-16-2017 02:03 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

After a few days of analyzing how to cope with the cup in the table top panel that appeared after glue up. I arrived at the conclusion that my original plan of using a dado blade on the table saw wasn’t going to work for machining the tongues. So I ordered a pattern bit from Whiteside machine to try and use a router and a known flat reference surface to machine the tongues after I clamped the panel flat. Worked pretty well, tongues are straight but not as uniform in thickness as I had hope...

Frame saw, maple scraps #1: Parts...

11-09-2017 11:52 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

This may be a short blog….decided to use some of the Maple 1×4s in the scrap pile.. There was a 1×4 about this long….I ripped it right down the center, to make a pair of handle blanks. I had a few old Butcher’s Meat saws just rusting away… This one is the larger one still sitting around. Two others supplied a few parts, and an 18” long saw blade. Drilled a couple holes, bandsaw to rough ly shape each handle…there was a longer 1×4...

The Quest for a Better Bench #5: Mortise and Tenon Joinery... Just writing that makes me feel like a SUPER WOODWORKER!!!

11-05-2017 12:56 AM by PlanBWoodworks | 1 comment »

DISCLAIMER!!! THis post only contains a small portion that relates to Mortise and Tenmon Joinery. It just made me feel all tingly to include that in my title. Sorry for misleading you. At the end of my last blog entry, my workbench top was in the glue up stage. I glued up the top in 4 sections that would allow me to combine 2 and BARELY be able to run them through the planer. I was shooting for a top that was 60” long and 25”wide. both 12 1/2” sections maxed out the capacity of my De...

Ok, had a few scraps of Poplar, just sitting around, getting in the way Trimmed a few down, to see IF I could make a box out of them… Laid out some tools, to make a few dovetails..

This time, the welds on the stool decided to gave way…..had to saw the first set sta...

How to Set a Japanese Chisel Hoop

10-17-2017 07:39 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

Video is here View on YouTube Just a simple method that will work to set the hoop properly on your Japanese chisels. Just remember that if you buy a brand new Japanese chisel that they will NOT come setup and ready to use. You are expected to set the tool up the way that you prefer. If you haven’t done anything with Japanese tools this task is a great confidence booster and a great starting point for your skills. It’s truly not difficult and once you’ve done it a few ...

A project in Maple #8: Hinges, rails, and dovetails

10-08-2017 08:12 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hinges I had bought for this project…looked a bit wimpy….needed something a bit …different. Some yard sale finds gave me a few hinges to try. One “leaf” was a bit too long, though. Grinder to remove the “excess” metal.. One is a before, the other three are after the grinder work. Sat the lid in the vise, laid out the locations for the hinges, drilled a few pilot holes…. Once all three were done, I set the lid aside, cleared a sp...

A project in Maple #7: a PIP, and a tray?

10-06-2017 11:18 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, catching up….trying to get this project done..sometime… Got this all sanded down to 120 grit…and added a coat of amber shellac…. Still needs to have the hinges installed…. All squared edges were rounded over, using a spokeshave, a block plane, and smoothed out with the sander..Hinges? Well…they did make it ON to the chest…in a way. The Maple 1×1 and the 1×4? The skinny one is to be a rail. The one by is to supply a...

A project in Maple #6: A bottom framed, a puppy died, a lid done...

10-01-2017 04:22 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Had a little 3 month old puppy in the house…..she came down sick the other day….the next morning she passed away, before we could even get her to the vet…..thinking something poisoned her out in the yard…. Ok, I wasn’t in a very good mood when I returned to the shop… Hammer and chisel to shape the feet a bit, to at least blend them together….Ripped a bunch of maple scraps into 1×1s…and made a frame of sorts.. To support the plywood...
