A Stepback Cupboard build #5: A drawer building day

01-07-2018 12:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I got the clamps off, and things laid out… Drawer front fits…I removed the rest of the clamps, and moved the case so I could have a bit more elbow room… Hauled the Pine 1×6 to the shop. Set up to cut a pair of drawer sides. A Disston D-7, 10ppi crosscut. That green can was also needed, today One end was a tad off, used the mitre box to trim it down to match the first one. You would think, that both parts coming from the same board, would be the s...

A Stepback Cupboard build #3: A face frame gets built

01-04-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok. I need to build a “face frame” to cover the front edges of the case..ripped down another plank of Ash Bandsaw to rip a couple stiles, about 1-1/2” wide. Jointer plane to remove saw marks, and make the two match each other. Needed three rails.. Mitersaw to cut those to length….ganged all three up.. Shorter boards = shorter planes. Then I needed tenons on both ends of these three.. Didn’t like these wide tenons, so they were trimmed down a...

Creating a Mixed Nut Dish from a log I found

12-29-2017 05:41 PM by beahan | 3 comments »

I wanted to make a nut dish like one that my grandparents used to have. Recently I found a log that was thick enough to make one. I know this project is rather simple to do, but I think the nut dish looks way better than a plastic bowl of nuts on the counter. I have embedded the video, enjoy! Chris View on YouTube

Hand tool workbench build #1: Introduction and goals

12-29-2017 06:24 AM by SauceMan | 3 comments »

Hi all! I’ve got this crazy idea that I’ve been hinting at which is to build a workbench entirely using hand tools. I have a number of power tools, including a table saw, a jointer and a thickness planer, but I’m thinking that I’d like to try to make this project by hand. My goal is to share my progress through an overdue youtube channel I created. Here’s a link to my channel where I go over some of the information you see in this post: https://www.youtub...

Shop stuff #113: Something Roubo-esque Pt 1 It's a long video

12-18-2017 09:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

They are taking down some dead and dangerous trees around our place. If you have been following you will know that I have plenty of firewood. I decided to take a section on one tree and mill it up into slabs, freehand, with a chain saw. Not a job for the faint of heart. Then I proceed to “take the ugly” out of it with a router and sled. I am calling this Part One of “Something Roubo-esque” as I am hoping it is the start of my workbench build. Parts of this series...

Brynn's Desk Build #4: Overview of the build

12-17-2017 09:47 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

This writing desk is one of my favorite builds. Made from cherry, with spaltted maple for the side panels and drawer pulls. The drawer pulls are held in place with walnut posts for a little accent. If you are interested in the build process here is a little build video. I started out milling the legs and cutting them to length. Next, laying out the joinery and drawing in the curve I liked for the legs. It is way easier to cut all the joinery to before cutting the curves. This gives...

Shop stuff #112: A simple shelf (hand tool only build)

12-12-2017 01:08 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Well, I uploaded this one a couple of days ago but with the new algorithms on You Tube I put it as private first. They are all getting tagged as unsuitable for advertisers and then you have to request a manual review, when it passes, then make it public. More hoops to jump through. With the few dollars on You Tube I make I can’t afford to miss those first few days that it generates, and even that is not much. I probably don’t get a cup of coffee per video…lol. This on...

Fixing a knot hole that got sucked up in the planer with a christmas tree

12-06-2017 05:50 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

Watch it on YouTube or read about it below I am working on another barn door for a client, and this door has created a few challenges for me. The client really loves the look of the gray weathered wood and wanted it on both sides of the door. The only problem is that most barn wood is only gray on one side. The other side that faces the inside of the barn is brown because it never sees the weather.So I decided to create barn wood veneer so I could veneer both sides of the door using th...
