Hand Tool Woodworking #1: How I got started

07-06-2017 07:23 PM by Rwolinski | 6 comments »

Just a note that I’ll add to from time to time.I started woodworking with power tools and migrated to hand tools. Kinda backwards. but that is how it happened.Norm Abram was my hero but I found I couldn’t keep up with his tools.Then I found guys like Frank Klausz, who just by their passion got me started using my hand tools.Now I do more with them than power tools to be continued…..

Standing Desk of Cherry #5: Assembly time

07-04-2017 04:22 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, got side #2 out of the clamps….needed a few things down… Bead work was done on the outside corner of the last leg…the one I forgot to do. Was a bit trickier to do it now..first was sitting on the bench,,,,second one? Amazing what a shop stool can do…Next was more pins.. Drill a hole, drive a pin with a spot of glue. coping saw to trim, planes to smooth things out.. Since I had the cross stretcher cut to size, I used it to lay out a socket or two…...

Standing Desk of Cherry #4: More leg work, glue ups, dry fits...

07-02-2017 01:13 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

trying to get something done….had too many irons in the fire, bound to forget something…. Cross stretcher has been planed smooth, and a bead cut on all four corners. Bought a set of carving knives, just to clean the beads up. I removed the glued up side from the clamps, decided to “pin” the joints. Drilled a few holes.. A little glue into the hole, and drive a dowel through.. Coping saw to trim the excess dowel, block plane to smooth things out. Se...

Standing Desk of Cherry #3: Back leg work, a glue up or two..

06-30-2017 11:52 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, Dungeon Shop is kind of a stuffy place to work, no air movement, unless you count me walking around. Got a few “helpers” set up.. Had an empty bottle I could refill with water.. Set up a fan to get things cooler…..around where I will be working.. Mainly sitting on this. I had a couple extra long pipe clamps in the shop…too long. Tried to cut them down from 6’ to 4’....pipe cutter broke. Hey, we have those hacksaws just hanging around. G...

Standing Desk of Cherry #2: Leg work..

06-29-2017 12:29 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, lunch is over….spent the afternoon doing mortises to match the tenons.. The “Usual Suspects” were found hiding in plain sight.. At least they won’t roll off onto the floor. Clamped a leg blank to the bench, marked out where the mortise was needed. Chisels to chop it out… Dry fit. I trimmed a little off the end of the tenon, too. Rotate the blank 90 degrees, chop out the next mortise, and do another dry fit… Again, trim a little off...

Make a Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 2

05-30-2017 12:03 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 6 comments »

Hello everyone! In this second part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench, I share with you the gluing of the parts, the beveling of dog holes using a gouge, the shaped of the fixing lugs, the placement of the threaded rods, and the built of the front jaw. Beveling of dog holes using a gouge, instead a power router or other method, it’s really simple and quick.As all in wood, you must understand the grain direction, and think that the gouge will be in four basic position...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #2: Webframes....

05-24-2017 07:33 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, part 2. Those 1xs with the sawn edges, they were smoothed out and jointed this morning….made a bit of a mess on the floor.. Wanted to get the parts as close to matching each other as i could. Laid out for some tenons to be cut on the ends of the short parts.. Again, I wanted all of these to match each other. Set up a jig on the bandsaw, and then reset for the rest of the cuts. That “thing” sitting beside the tenons? Is a mortise jig I use. Attached t...
