Weekly Shop Updates #6: July 12, 2015

07-13-2015 08:13 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

View on YouTube This week I’ve been very productive. I finished installing the sterling silver in the ebony bars. After that I prepared the surfaces of my parts and rounded over the edges of the rails and mortises. Finally, I cut the housed mortises for the rails and stretchers. I also show you my new Lie-Nielsen Number 2 Bench Plane and talk about why I bought it and show you how it preforms.

View on YouTube This week I continued to focus on the back of the chair. I spent time finessing the crestrails shape. After that, I focused on the center back slat.

My New Workbench #3: Chopping the Leg Mortises

07-08-2015 03:20 PM by mramseyISU | 0 comments »

Time to get on with the part I was dreading the most, chopping mortise for the legs in the benchtop. I was dreading this because they were so big, 1”W x 4”L x 2”D to be exact. I roughed out the tenons on my tablesaw with a dado stack so nothing really to see there, then I finished them with my router plane. Next came the chop chop. These were the first mortises I’ve ever tried to cut completely with hand tools. I’ve done several where I drilled out most of the wa...

Maple/oak project/desk #4: Into the land of stopped dados, and miss-cut bottoms

06-30-2015 09:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, last time, I had the four sides about together. Clamped them up into a box like shape As I needed some more layout work done. Had a 2’ x2’ sheet of 1/4” Oak plywood to try to cut into a bottom And, in theory, I could just measure the two directions and mark things out…..in theory yes, in this shop….Nope. Measured three times, laid out the lines, cut leaving the lines….1” off on the front to back measure? Ok, We’ll deal with th...

Maple/oak project/desk #3: Dovetails, rebates, and grooviness, oh my...

06-29-2015 08:13 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, maybe today will go a bit better than the last one? Had an Auction to go to Saturday, and refurbbed a couple items I picked up at it. Bench is cleared off, time to do a few dovetails? When last seen, i had these sawn. I picked up a candle the other day, waxed the saw blade, and made a couple more cuts. Then the chisels took over. That chisel came from the set I picked up at Aldis. It is about 5/16-3/8” wide. I’m banging through curly Maple with this chisel....

Small size reclaimed wood BASEBALL BAT

06-29-2015 07:27 AM by Yuval Eitan | 0 comments »

Small size reclaimed wood BASEBALL BAT I made this bat as a birthday present for my (back then) nine years old elder son.We have no tradition of playing baseball here, but my son was exposed to it at school, and wished he had one. I had no idea what size will fit a kid, the proportions it shoul have, the types of wood usually used etc, so I did some online research. I didn’t follow the official measures strictly, but got a fair idea. It had to be manageable in terms of size and we...
