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 #13: Late start, frame glue up

09-19-2018 12:10 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Waited until after lunch to start in on this…mess. Searched all through the house, and the shop…looking for c clamps of any sort….I think they may be related to pencils…both seem to ran away and hide. Managed to track down a pile of the critters.. Even cut a few cauls….might need a couple? And made sure there was enough glue…hate to run out in the middle of things ( brand new bottle sitting off to the side, just in case…Ok..first item..the bo...

That OddLots Ad #12: Up date to the Project..

09-18-2018 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Couple hours here, a couple there….Left side of the frame needed tuned up…to match the right side.. Got these joints fitting a little better….. Takes most of these tools, to fit the joints up….lot of flattening to do… The next trip to the shop..left side was tuned up. Both of the middle rails/stiles were also done…which left the curved center piece to do. Three nails, and a thin piece of plywood, mark out a fair curve…then cut that on the...

That OddLots Ad #10: A tale of three tasks to do

09-14-2018 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I set myself three jobs to do today…the second end panel needed a rebate made, to house the plywood back. Once that was done ( task #1) I could install both end panels onto the “mainframes”, and get rid of the clamps holding things together. (Task #2) and finally, needed to build a pair of frames to use with a drawer, and install those (task#3)........Got the rebate milled.. Unclamped the panel, set it in the leg vise, use the Wards (Stanley)#78 to plane the rebate&...

That OddLots Ad #9: Face frames, a start is made

09-13-2018 12:34 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

While waiting on this computer to wake up, and repair itself (never did….) decided to haul the rest of the Ash 1×6s on hand to the shop…. Would have been nice to just glue these three up into the top of the case….like everything else this morning, there were “issues” going on. Issue #1 Issue #2.. Kind of hard to glue up a panel with these involved. Third plank had a couple knots along one edge…Well, I could cut these down into parts fo...

That OddLots Ad #7: Bottom frame and the dividers

09-11-2018 03:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Monday..normally the shop is closed. However, sitting around the house doing nothing gets BORING…makes a great motivator to get something done. Too wet for yard work….might as well head to the shop..Bottom frame needed built. I have a way of cutting mortises on the ends of a board..I use the tenon to lay out for the mortise Then I use a backsaw at an angle, to saw as much as I can….even dragging the toe back out of the cut a few times Then a mortise chisel tha...

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 ...
