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 | 1 comment »

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...

Another pile of pine #4: Part 5: Top and a shelf

04-05-2015 03:57 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First off….HAPPY EASTER! Well, added some cleats to hold a top in place, and act as “kickers” for the drawers. Cut around to get past the legs, and went to screw them in place…...something was a might off. Well, got the cleats on the ends installed , and a center cleat. Center cleat had to move a bit to line up? Ok, plopped the base onto the top. Placed a screw into each center line hole. Grabbed a LONG pipe clamp, and set it up at a diagonal. The idea...

Another pile of pine #1: Part 2, a top is formed up

03-31-2015 03:08 AM by bandit571 | 7 comments »

Well, got the top almost flat on the “face side” the other day Used a scrub jack plane to get things down to almost flat, other than all them scalloped areas. Got out a little bit bigger, and wider jack plane. This time, it is used like a try plane, going at the diagonals to the grain, until all them scallops are gone. Top still wanted to bow up a bit, so I clamped that end down flat, and left it sit a while…. Well this evening, flipped the top over to work on t...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #23: Workbench Modifications & Additions

03-31-2015 02:18 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

I made about 10 half inch deep cuts to remove most of the waste wood for the groove. My white pine 1X2 saw guide and clamps. Here is the 1-1/2” wide by 1/2” deep groove the length of the top board. I can’t believe how good it looks! I made and used my “poor man’s router” that Paul Sellers talks about in one of his videos. It is a poor man’s router made poorly by me. But it worked well enough to get the bottom of the groove flat. I’ll ha...

Largest Circular Saw?

09-13-2014 02:21 AM by socrbent | 6 comments »

While watching Redwood Kings I saw them using a huge circular saw with a 32 clearly on blade. Could that be 32”? Definitely would take two hands. Amazing.This 16” Makita was the largest I found on Google with a quick search

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #8: Waterfall Leg Cut

08-01-2014 10:56 PM by CharlesA | 4 comments »

I know I make mistakes when I get hurried, so I wanted to make this important cut when I first came into the shop. I finally took the plunge. Covered the cut lines with tape to eliminate splintering: How’s it look? Now it its time to cut the corresponding angle on the leg. And . . ? Wonder if it will fit together? This might actually work!

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #7: Preparing the the big cut; dying the walnut

08-01-2014 01:37 AM by CharlesA | 2 comments »

Because woodworking is a hobby, I only get an hour or two a night (at most) in the shop on weekdays, and I travel a fair bit, so sometimes progress is a bit slow. Tonight I did a fair amount of cleaning in the shop (the spray of wood chips from flattening the boards went everywhere). The most important task was setting up the crosscut. As you can probably tell, I feel like this is the single most important task of the entire project, so I am taking it slowly. Tonight I drew the line to ...
