A project in Maple #2: Hey, glue ups!

09-21-2017 01:28 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Today, was much better. Even remembered to turn the shop light and the fan on! Goal was to get at least the front assembly glued up, and a start on the back assembly.. Last two mortises were chopped…did a few fittings with the rest of the parts. There was another panel glued up….took it out of the clamps, and used the two completed raised panels to mark out for size…..blank was an inch shorter than I wanted…..decided a wider center stile would work….set...

A project in Maple #1: start ups

09-21-2017 01:02 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still had a stack of Maple “scraps” sitting around, needed a project to use them up on…...maybe a small blanket chest? Let’s see… This is most of the wood supply….I also went and bought a 1×4 x 8’ Maple plank, as I might need a few pieces to cover ..oops items…. I had this glued up panel from Charles Neil….and there was a 5/4 slab in the stack.. It did have a crack that finally gave way. Not sure why it was stained, eith...

Charging Station for my Cordless Tools

09-18-2017 02:48 PM by Thumper2004 | 0 comments »

So I started a while back in designing a new charging station/Tool Storage for my various cordless tools. I was able to continue work on this as I had already cut and assembled the hanger portions. There is still quite a bit to go so it may take a while with life happening. Thanks for checking it out. I can post plans for this if requested.

Walnut & Cherry, new project #4: Lid work, and a sealcoat

09-12-2017 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Box is out of the clamps. Decided to build the lid as a frame & raised panel.. Did a bit of trading for a stick of Black Walnut. Crosscut to get a few parts. These for the raised panel.. needed this for a pair of long rails, and.. These two for the short rails.. Long rails were ripped into a matching pair….needed saw marks removed.. Next day. got the blank out of the clamps, and planed them flat.. Made a jig to hold the panel still.. While a pair of #4 plan...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #3: Stanley 45 time...

09-09-2017 01:53 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I have the Stanley 45 all set up….need to mill a few tongues on the end pieces.. Called a “Match” cutter, cuts a 3/16” wide tongue, for a tongue and groove joint… Fence sits below the cutter. As this were designed to mill up to 4/4 stock, a 3/4” thick piece will have a bit of overhang. I raised the depth stop up, out of the way, as the cutter has it’s own. I used this set up, to hold the end pieces still, long enough to mill the edg...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #2: Out of the clamps..

09-08-2017 04:20 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, where was I? Got the two sides out of the clamps.. Side One.. Was trying to see IF I like the “flat” panel look….not..Side two. I think a Raised Panel look will just have to do… Which leaves the ends to make. Collection of planes were the ones being used. They need smaller stiles….made it a bit rough to use the 45….still had a 1×4 slab…I could make the grooves first, rip the part off the slab, and keep making parts. Too...

Chest of drawers is done…still have a pile of “leftovers”... A small stack of Cherry….a 1×4 x7’ plank of walnut, and a few other odds & ends…. Decided to resaw the Cherry a bit, so I planed them to about the same thickness and width. Made a jig for the bandsawTo see IF it would help with these tall boards. Meh….Brought the Walnut plank to the shop….made a few crosscuts… It had a section that needed to be…gone&...

Shop stuff #103: Photo frame

08-30-2017 02:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Perhaps the longest title of any video I have made. It started out as a simple build, but, as is my habit, I complicate it a bit. There is also joinery that I was not completely satisfied with, although it did come out OK for my first attempt at a half lap mitre,so I did a “fix” to it. Sometimes accidents are a benefit. Lots of hand work, which I love doing, but sometimes the machines just have to come out. View on YouTube

Cedar Entertainment Unit #9: Shoji screens coming together finally haha

08-27-2017 09:41 PM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

I still have a bit of work to do on them but I can see the end of the road. I have used all traditional methods to do the joints etc on these and have learnt a hell of a lot about accurate marking and cutting, a long and quite difficult but very enjoyable task!
