Maybe the beginning of a larger project #10: No progress but I found out about hull #500

07-21-2013 06:06 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

The closest I’ve come to working on 816 is walking through the shop on the way to work. I did have a surprise the day after I registered my PDR in that the other Manitoban who has a PDR emailed me and introduced himself. Turns out we are only about an hour away from each other. Serendipitiously he was to do an interview that same day with a local radio station to try and stir up some interest in wooden boats. Apparently his hull (#500) is still serviceable and it sounds like he real...

Workbench Build #29: Finishing one endcap and cutting my first dovetails..

07-14-2013 05:57 PM by Airframer | 5 comments »

Yesterday started with the bench side of the Toolwell. I glued up the back wall the night before and yesterday morning it was time to remove the clamps and rip that to the correct thickness. I decided to do it this way so I could clamp the other side to this one as a cutting guide. It worked pretty well. A quick pass with the No 4 and it is done. Then I trimmed up the leading edge where the dovetails will be and started on the mortise in the endcap. I used the same process a...

Workbench Build #27: Top Trimming and Prepping for the Deadman..

07-11-2013 05:08 AM by Airframer | 6 comments »

First things first I trimmed the tenons that I left long flush with the top. My HF flush cut saw took care of that pretty quickly. Then I wanted to square up one end of the bench. Eventually I will cut a tenon in here for the end cap. The other end is waiting on the end caps and wagon vise hardware to determine where it will be cut. Then I wanted to carve out the deadman groove before I forgot and ended up trying to cut it out upside down and backwards lol. I al...

Murphy Bed #1: Building a Murphy Bed from scratch

07-10-2013 10:57 PM by Jim Jakosh | 32 comments »

We need a Murphy bed next winter in Arizona and I did not want to buy the hardware. That takes all the fun out of designing it yourself and costs $360. So I looked at a lot of bed designs and settled on one that used HD pivots, gas springs for counterbalance and a swing out leg support rather than the fold down kind.The parameters were a twin mattress (7×39 x 75), had to flip long ways and enough room inside for making the bed. Then I had to decide on the pivot points, the foot pivot ce...

Workbench Build #26: Standing on it's own 4 legs...

07-08-2013 05:59 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Time for some catch up and an update. Most of you who follow the workbench thread on the forum have already seen most of this but I feel compelled to keep this blog alive and I really need to resist the urge to spam the forum with progress updates and keep them here lol (sorry about that guys!). So we left off with the legs being glued up so naturally the next step was to square them up and make them more “leg” like. I had to get creative with the clamping to make this happen...

Dining Room Table...BY Suppertime?

07-07-2013 01:21 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Yup. had a pair of legs already tapered on two sides. Got the other two legs done by noonish. Tapered with handplanes only, mind you. Set up a “work space” such as i have. A washer & dryer served as a staging area And laid out a few toys, er tools. That little piece of paper? THAT is all the “plans” I had, just the measurements for the aprons. Made tenons on one of the short aprons ( 24-1/2” long 1×4) so I would have a pattern...

Old gems #2: mortice chisels (pig sticker)

06-28-2013 12:52 PM by Gibernak | 6 comments »

A month ago I bought these chisels for about 10 dollars. I didn’t really know what it was before I began investigating. I began by checking the names of chisels 3 of them are stamped “Ward” 5 of them are mortise chisels, the old pig sticker kind, but the handles were in bad condition. They were worm-eaten and split so I decided to replace them and they were quite rusty. So I put them in some water with citric acid And made new handels This is how t...
