Another box build #2: panels and grooves

11-13-2018 05:13 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took Sunday off. Was feeling under the weather, and it was Veterans’ Day. Today? Monday or not….things needed to get done….at least something besides all them trips to the bathroom..Finally was able to head to the shop….and, get those two panels out of the clamps. One was a tad narrower than the other. Used that one to get the other sized for width. The blank for the two end panels was also roughly trimmed for width. Then, time to remove the “rou...

Another box build #1: Start up

11-11-2018 04:24 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had a lot of scrap pieces left over from the last project….some of the Pine scraps can be used for jigs and such. The White Oak scraps….some were just too knot ridden to be of much use, other than roast some hotdogs out at the firepit. Other scraps were re-sawn down… Some of these got sliced into thinner stock… There was also a chunk of 1×12 Oak… That may get trimmed down into a lid..for the box…selected the best of the mess of 1×3R...

Ok, Sunday….nasty, dreary, rainy outside the windows…..even a Hail Storm came through….seems when we get a lot of rain…the Dungeon gets a small creek running across the floor to the floor drain….. Life in a basement….of course, the creek HAS to go through, right where I’m working…. And each rain shower, a new wave would come downstream. Ok…had a door to repair.. I had went ahead and drilled corner for a deep counter bored hole&#...

Next Kitchen Project #10: Cut list, and a start on the doors

10-27-2018 04:07 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Puzzle was how to cut what Oak I have left, into all the parts I needed to make…. This was the easy part. I need a top shelf for the unit above the microwave oven…Shelf needs to be 9” wide, and match the top of the base. Length I can cut to…width? Should be enough, and enough left over for a stile for one of the door frames… I have these three, at 3/4” thick, by 6-1/2” wide….Topper needs two sides at 8” wide….by 23̶...

Next Kitchen Project #9: Drawer Building 101, part 2

10-26-2018 03:54 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I had the Stanley 45 all set up to plough grooves for the bottom of the drawer to reside in. Made a jig, to hold the front and the two sides.. Just three sticks of scrap….third one to hold the part down. Front was done first, then the jig was changed to the shorter length of the sides.. Got both of these sides done. Then it was time to tear the Stanley 45 down, and set it up for dados.. Exchange the #12 cutter for this #18-1/2 cutter ( matches the thickness of the pi...

First off,,,there WAS a zip-tie holding the doors shut…for the simple reason that was the only way they would STAY shut…picture above is after two trash bags were filled…and a tub for the firepit.. Was filled enough to start a second one….tried to help&#...

Didn’t burn a one! Drill press was still in “Lo...

Next Kitchen Project #6: face frame and a back

10-23-2018 05:32 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

had some time to kill, waiting on the Boss. Decided to fix the tablesaw, and see what I could get done…Hauled a plank to the shop….will be cut into parts for the face frame…first, the saw needed some work. Mitre guage isn’t the biggest…at least it doesn’t rattle around in the slot. Found a STRAIGHT scrap…attached it to the mitre gauge.. It has a pair of slots for screws. Strip was a bit long, so I ran the mitre gauge down both slots.. ...

Needed to mill some rebates, get the second frame done….and buy some screws..Second frame, the one the drawer will be sliding on… Was glued up, spent most of the day waiting on the glue to cure…rebates? Set up the Stanley 45. Once I figured out which were the backs of the two side panels, I could mark where to put the rebate,,clamp each side panel to the side of the bench.. Mr. Stanley does NOT like knots, had to chisel a couple out of the way… Decided t...
