Faery Mirrors Build #4: Lap Joints, Router Days and Dry Fit

02-11-2013 05:28 PM by Lumberpunk | 1 comment »

Ok a couple of busy days, probably gonna take a day off today to be with the family. Here is one side of the top brace scribed for routing the curved side of the lap joint. and here it is after routing, the edge was done in four very careful passes with a 1/8th bit and then the rest was hogged out with a 3/4 straight bit after this pic. After doing six of these my shoulders were pretty tight. Then I took to it with chisel and file and very slowly snuck up on a nice tight fit....

Faery Mirrors Build #2: Learning & More Jigs

02-08-2013 02:33 AM by Lumberpunk | 1 comment »

Well… a couple of days of intense learning. Chopped some mortises with my drill press, not very happy with them, machine has way to much runout. You can see them on the left. So I made a mortising jig for my router, inspired by this post:http://lumberjocks.com/HungryTermite/blog/13593 The mortises on the right (above) were cut with this jig. I made some upgrades to the jig. I scribed centre lines before drilling for the router, then mounted a 1/4 inch brad point drill b...

Cheap Table: finishing up the base

02-04-2013 02:52 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, front and back leg assemblies are out of the clamps. Need to fit a brace between the front and back apron. Since this is a Hand Tool exercise, I guess i will do it that way First a piece of scrap needed to be cut to length. Nice Sycamore Handled Crosscut saw. Next, lay out for a Dovetail. One on each end. I used an old router bit to mark out the dovetail shape. Then a little saw work Then cut out the waste with a chisel. I chop down at an angle to match the shape...

Pie Safe #6: The light at the end of the tunnel.

02-03-2013 07:30 PM by scamp238 | 7 comments »

Well, she is almost finished. The back is on and there are just minor details left. I was pleased with how the back turned out. I was wanting it to contrast with the rest. My daughter didn’t really want this, but once it was on, she really liked it. Thanks for looking everyone. The next time I post on this, it will be a finished project.

Hand tool tips and tricks #3: When you don't have a place for chisels.

02-03-2013 06:10 PM by RGtools | 9 comments »

Today is just a quick one. I thought I should start posting more of these little things as they come up. For the most part I like to keep my chisels and auger bits in tool rolls. It keeps them safe and sharp, but as my collection grows I sometimes don’t have enough chisels to justify buying or making another roll. For this I venture to the scrap fabric section of my shop. I pick out something like this. And wrap my tools up as follows. Sorry for the blur on some of thes...

Making Carbide Tool Bar Handles

02-02-2013 09:04 PM by socrbent | 2 comments »

In the spirit of giving back to all you LJ’s who have inspired and informed me, here is an attempt to share the making of 4 tool bar handles. My wife gave me four 1/2” tool bars and 12 carbide cutters for Christmas from my wish list. Wanted to try some Easy Wood carbide type tools at a reasonable price level. To hold the cost down my wish list specified bars and cutters from Big Guy Productions and then turn my own handles for them. Step 1 – Turn HandlesThe project star...

Cheap table, Part two

01-30-2013 11:50 PM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Started chopping mortises. By hand, no less. Laid out the mortise Yep, they go all the way to the top. next a kerf cut, just to keep things from splitting out. Doesn’t have to all that precise, just set the depth, and the length. Slight over cut will get covered by the apron. Next Chisel to chop down into the end. Sets the bottom of the mortise. Need this for the next step I split out the waste. A few other chisels to define the sides better, and then a check...

Furniture Builds #1: Cherry Shaker-inspired End Table

01-30-2013 07:52 PM by rdwile | 9 comments »

The last time I was over at my son’s apartment he “casually” mentioned that he needed an end table beside his couch to put things on, so I decided this would be my next project. After the toolchest build I was looking for a small project that was hand tool centric that I could build in a few days. All the other pieces I have made for him have been Cherry so the wood choice was easy. I had built an end table similar to this in the past so quickly threw down some measuremen...
