Well, snuck back to the shop for a bit. The sides for the lid needed a bit of rounding over… The problem was here in the corners, Didn’t want the one roundover to run through the others. The shorter ends, I could just run through, the longer ones I did not want to on the insides. Got the short ends into the vise….what to round over with? too small for the corded router, did not have a small enough bit, anyway. A few passes with a block plane solved that. Not a...
Managed to sneak down to the shop, the other night. Set up a jig to plough some grooves Called a K.I.S.S. Jig…..About the only way I could think of to hold these lid frame parts still, long enough to make a groove. Set up the Stanley #45 Wasn’t enough room in there for the sliding section, left it off. A #11 cutter was used. Candle wax to make things slide better. Nice Curlie Qs? Tried a second one.. 2 for 2! Ok, these were the “short” pieces. As...
Well, I was going to clear a path to my mitresaw bench, but. I’d have to move a lot of “stuff” out of the way, just to use that mitre saw clear back by the wall, just for these three cuts? Well, THAT ain’t going to happen, so how about I clear off the bench’s top, and add a smaller mitre saw there? One, I unfold the GEM, add four screws to attach it to the bench’s top. That saw was way too big. And, must have been a thicker saw used at some po...
Well, I had the plane set up, might as well see what it can do You have keep an eye peeled, and watch the fence. Otherwise, the plane will wander off to the side. Candle wax helps the plane to slide along better. I got to the point that only the thumb was near the knob, three fingers were shoving against the fence. LIGHT cuts help, too, at least in this stuffFinally got all four sides done, and the grooves even matched! And, by cutting through only half the width of the “fin...
Before the storms came through. Shop is closed down, due to a creek running across the floor. Floor drain working good, just was a LOT of rain outside. Had to stop for supper, anyway. Sooo, what all DID I get done? Well, I hauled the Stanley #45 down the stairs,and even brought along that new bottle of glue. Marked out for more finger joints, as I had two more corners to do. Hands were sore from all the handsaw work, so I used the bandsaw instead.. Then clamp it to the ben...

Hey all, just wanted to share with you my NASA inspired toolbox! I’ve weathered it (separate post coming on that) and am really happy with how it turned out! View on YouTube
It’s been a while. I finally got around to spending a day editing. So here is part one of a simple build that turned out not to be so simple. Actually, the editing and putting together of the video was not that simple either….lol. View on YouTube
