Small Secretary With Tambour Door #12: Hardware and Final Assembly

03-29-2015 10:39 PM by Guy Dunlap | 14 comments »

It’s finally finished! In this video I perform the final assembly of the secretary. I install the tambours and handles, the backs, and the drawer hardware. Yes, I did end up going with the larger pulls. There were some very good points made about the larger and smaller pulls. However in the end, it boiled down to my beautiful wife making the final decision. A nice coat of wax and it’s complete! Thanks to everyone who watched and supported me during this build! As always, I welcome your com...

Tool Box #2: case work

08-12-2014 11:01 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

Pie Safe #3: More progress

01-08-2013 11:45 PM by scamp238 | 4 comments »

My daughter has been making some progress on the pie safe. She has gotten it almost to where you can tell what it is going to be. She has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I have a question, are there anyShe has finished punching one of the panels and is working on another. I would love to hear some ideas. By the way, the panel was punched using a sharpened nail and a hammer. I thought it came out good. We opted for a bread box opening ...

Recently, I was lamenting to a friend about my limitations in the camera department.

Lathing Here are a few pics of me setting up a block and turning with the roughing gauge - Sharpening Using the Work Sharp to put an edge back on the roughing gouge - I still can’t freehand on a grinder ...

Hand Tool Ramblings #3: The Anarchists Bug Out Box

12-24-2013 04:55 AM by rustythebailiff | 4 comments »

Living here in sunny FLA, we don’t have to worry about ice and snow. But, we do get the occasional tornado. And hurricanes are not unheard of. So, as my hand tool collection has grown over the years, it suddenly occurred to me that if I had to flee from impending natural disaster, it would take me a good hour to gather up my precious hand tools. Now, not to downplay the importance of my power tools, but they are easier to replace than some of my vintage hand tools. So, after watc...

Aurora Night Stand #4: Going Old School...

01-03-2009 07:50 AM by Topapilot | 4 comments »

Well, I found out what was wrong with my mortising set up – the drill bit inside the mortise chisel was bent and causing the chisel to jam. I tried another chisel that had never been used and it worked, so I went old-school. I started and ended the mortising with those whatchamacallits, chisels! Thats it! I marked out the mortises with a pencil, then went around the perimeter with a chisel. I only went deep enough to cut the surface fibers, maybe 1/16”+, and got a nice outli...

Carving Green Wood #1: How much will green carving wood move?

08-08-2013 05:13 PM by Tom Pritchard | 2 comments »

I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #8: Install the tail vise, done with the top

03-17-2015 12:43 AM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

Yesterday I took the end cap and cut out two mortises first using a spade bit and then chiseling it square. I had to trim the tenons down a bit to fit in, and when I was squaring the small mortise, part of the end grain wall broke away leaving me with a big gap. I really didn’t want to make another end cap and do all of this work again, so I think I’m going to go with it for now. If I decide later I can’t live with it, I can just take it off and make another o...
