04-24-2017 11:43 AM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...

Saw Til #3: Dovetails, lots of dovetails

04-13-2017 04:43 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Lets see, first thing today….rebate plane work.. Needed a place to attach the plywood back to…Then, some layout work.. Then a saw got put to work.. Usual suspects.. Chop from one face.. Flip over and repeat. Finally try a test fit.. Meh. Got the top of the til done, a set up for a glue up.. But needed a way to clamp this up, and not be in the way.. Works for me..Got the top fitted, now for the bottom… Wider board means more dovetails to do…...

Mongo: my first real workbench #5: Completion of the ribs and a start to the aprons

04-10-2017 02:18 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 0 comments »

This weekend was consumed primarily with installing a dog door and a ceiling/lighting in the breakfast nook off the kitchen of the farmhouse. I did get a couple of hours to steal away to the shop though. “Last picture first” isn’t that what all the cool kids are doing these days? The first order of business was to re-cut the ribs I tried to make on the router table. I used the table saw but I’ve never been very good at (accurate) with a miter gauge nor am I c...

Building my Workbench #8: Chisels be Cryin'

04-03-2017 11:49 AM by HokieKen | 29 comments »

OMG, I am horrible with this blog huh? Swaps been over for awhile now slacker…..I need an update. - ki7hy Fair enough ;-P I really hadn’t made any progress since the last update other than getting the end vise installed and drilling my dog/holdfast holes until last week. I did have a couple of days last week that I got good time and I got my legs all milled and got the tenons cut. So now I’m marking out and cutting my mortises. At the rate I’m going, I’...

Pine Table Project #4: Catching up, and a drawer made

04-02-2017 02:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Beginning to dislike hand cut half blind Dovetails…...PITA to do.. This is the second one I’ve ever done, without using an electric router and jig…..Maybe after a few more, I might get decent at these? Second side is out of the clamps, legs have their beads milled And stashed over with the first side. Dovetails are passable.. Ok, besides cleaning up a new plane I traded for, I did manage to make a drawer today. First, since I am done with the bead cutter, I cou...

Well, the cussing has begun…... Decided to mill a few tenons on the ends of the aprons…..Discovered I NEED the spur installed as soon as it gets here on my Stanley #45…..as I “Fired” the Wards #78 today. First off, I laid out for a tenon Didn’t want a tenon the full width of the 1×6, so.. Cut off a 3/4” x 3/4” square on each corner. At least there is less to work on….Got the Stanley made Wards #78 out of storage and star...

Hidden figers joints? #2: Last two corners..

03-20-2017 12:35 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Might as well make a box out of this… Worked on finding better ways of doing this…bandsaw was used for a bit on some areas, to hog off some of the waste. I also used the 358 mitre box for some of the crosscuts. Laid out the fingers.. This was after I had cut the mitred ends. More of the handsaw work at a 45 degree cut. Marked out where the ends of the fingers would be, and cut the excess off. SHARP chisels to remove the waste to form “pockets” The b...

Hidden figers joints? #1: Have the first and second done..

03-17-2017 08:04 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

A friend decided that he wanted to see full blind finger joints done. So, I walked out of Lowes with a pair of Poplar 1×4 x 24” boards. Figured it would be a little easier than using my supply of 3/8” thick pine…. I cut one of the boards into a pair of 6” long “Ends” ( yep, making yet another box) and a 12” side. laid out for the end joints.. I do have just the saw to cut these to length.. This works better than the bandsaw, for...

Honey locust bench. #2: Slow progress is still progress nonetheless.

03-15-2017 07:52 PM by mchapman87 | 3 comments »

Quick update from my honey locust bench build. I have been trying to juggle this in with a myriad of other projects that seem to pop up daily. My daughters birthday is tomorrow and I had the pleasure ( heavy sarcasm) of putting together this monstrosity of a swing set. I pray that one day my daughter will have kids and have to suffer the same fate as I haha. Two whole weekends of battling this behemoth and it’s finally complete. Now I can focus on some of my stuff, hopefully. I ...
