Hand Tool Journey #13: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 1

05-10-2013 04:27 AM by Airframer | 0 comments »

OK, so after my successful handle replacement I have the confidence to try something I have wanted to build up for a while. I need a layout compass and have been planning this out in my head for about a month now. Today was a day of trial and error. I don’t have any real plans drawn so this is a “make it up as I go” project. I spent the morning piecing together the hinge portion of the compass. I found some plans online and scaled them down by about half so they wou...

Hand Tool Journey #11: Crown Handle Replacement Surgery..

05-07-2013 01:35 AM by Airframer | 12 comments »

As mentioned in my Workbench Blog I was planning to replace the gents style handle on my 8” Crown Gents Dovetail Saw with a more suitable one. This will be more of a photo essay than anything but lets just say most the pics are of take 2 of this event lol. I am pretty happy with myself for getting the saw kerf cut free hand with nothing more than a scribe line and a HF flush cut saw :-) Sadly I was so “in the moment” that I forgot to take pics of the procedure. I hope ...

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

05-03-2013 04:16 AM by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

Medal Chest #10: Router Inlay

04-22-2013 12:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Today’s task was to fit the completed carving into the front panel of the box.  To do this, I decided to mark out the area I needed and use the router my dad donated to the shop last October.  It felt good to use this o...

Medal Chest #9: Finishing the Carving

04-22-2013 12:24 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

Note to my readers:  This entry is part of the secret project I’ve mention previously.  Now that it’s been delivered, I can post this without ruining the surprise… I put some more time in on the carving….another two days (which is really only about 4 hours), and it’s all done!  I carefully trimmed the wood to the pencil lines then used chisels to gentle chamfer the edges of the letters and the winged foot.  Then I trimmed an emory board to a point amd used ...

Medal Chest #8: Relief Carving is Good for the Soul

04-22-2013 12:02 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. I just love relief carving.  It’s so relaxing.  And it’s pretty comfortable on the mini-bench too.  Though I will look into making an angled piece to hold the work so I don’t have to crane my neck over the w...

Medal Chest #6: The Devil's in the Details

04-22-2013 11:43 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. While fuming over the death of my hand plane (see death of a plane below) I decided to switch tactics and work on the detail piece that will grace the front of the chest.  I plan to use a piece of basswood, carved, and set i...

Vermont Lap Desk, almost done:

04-20-2013 05:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With the sides all nice and coplanar, time to mill a rabbet for a bottom. Set up a router with a 3/8” rabbetting bit, and ran it around the edges. Squared the corners with a chisel. Now, I get told there is to be a divider in this desk. Hunt around for a piece of scrap wood to make the divider. I also needed a dado for it to be installed. So, I laid one out, about three inches from the front. handsawn, and then chiseled to remove the waste And repeat for the other s...
