09-19-2018 12:31 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Can’t work at the bench, right now..so…I can cleaned of the top of the case, haul three planks to the shop… First two, I could carry in one trip…they are also the shortest of the three…60-61” Plank #3 was a bit longer.. Needed to rip one of the planks of about 1-1/2” wide strip…. There were two like this one. Could not reach my go-to saw… SKIL 6” saw….however, I do have another such Vintage saw.. Craftsman 7-1...

That OddLots Ad #5: Side panels are done

09-09-2018 12:07 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Panel #2 came out of the clamps today. Jointed one edge straight…then got the idea to clamp panel #1 to Panel #2 And joint the edges til they matched…that was the plan….however.. With the other sides even..had this much to remove…more than “Just a little off the top”...wasn’t ready to push the No.7c THAT much…..got out an older jack plane, and roughed things down a bit.. Just to get things close.. For the other two planes to finish ...

That OddLots Ad #2: Starting up

09-07-2018 11:47 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, these were hauled to the shop…took a couple trips.. All five needed to be cut down to around 41” long..leaves a bit to trim on the ends when done.. Marked out a cut line, trying to get the “best” of the board IN the 41”...the rest will be on stand-by for smaller parts Worked my way down the stack…each board was set up on a pair of scrap pine boards, and the a clamp to hold them all still, while I cut the excess wood off…. As much ...

Underway again...finally #9: Progress... seriously.

11-18-2017 03:27 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

You read that correctly. I made actual progress. (This is not fine furniture. It’s a workstation that will remain outdoors 24/7 and is made 99% from freebies [CL and pallet wood]..... It’s also the first real project I’ve ever done – since high school 45 years ago, at least.)Here’s the end of Day 1 pic as proof:No, it’s not screwed and glued together. Just placed it all in approximately the correct final places. So, here’s how the day went. First, ...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #7: Back is completed

06-04-2017 04:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, a little bit of catching up.. Had a couple strong armed ( and back) youngsters ( 22 and 24 yr olds) haul the case up out of the shop… And get the Boss’ approval. Finished pantry will go against the wall… And replace this “too small” cupboard. Today, I decided to bring things upstairs to cut the last piece for the back. I have a saw bench outside on the back patio. Hauled the tools upstairs with no problems…..getting the back up th...

L-Shaped Desk #2: Doesn't look exactly like an L...

05-16-2017 06:46 AM by SauceMan | 2 comments »

There’s a picture of my completed desktop. I made it over the weekend, leaving the rough lumber in my shop for a week before I started tearing into it. I think it’s very close to the original measurements in my SketchUp plans, maybe off by a quarter of an inch or so. If you look at the grain, you’ll see pretty much all the parts are cut with 45 degree cuts, though you may have thought it would be easier to use square cuts for the L. The reason I did it this way is ...

Lego Table #4: Assembling the base

11-22-2015 07:42 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today was a pretty productive day in that I got all the lower parts of the table ready for finishing, but my final output didn’t look much different than yesterday. To start, I flipped the completed bottom frame over a piece of 1/2” plywood and traced the outline. I then broke out the circular saw and using a straight piece of poplar plank, figured out the blade offset and clamped the straight edge down. I placed this whole thing on top of a sheet of 1 1/2” thick (I think) foam insulation ...

What to do with a slab of Walnut...

11-21-2015 12:10 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, I got four to mill down into …..something. Set up a plank on the bench, scibed a few lines. I wanted four pieces 3" wide, with whatever was left for other parts. I got four 18” long, and two @ 17” long. Two of the planks, including this one, are 5/4 stock. The other two are just 4/4 stuff. Had the circular saws in from the trunk of the van, and took the larger one down to the shop… I can keep it on the shelf until needed. Made a big mess on the...
