A computer desk #9: Catching up

01-14-2019 03:45 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Figured I could at least finish the dovetails. Had the pins from the front done earlier. Used those to mark out the tails, and the bandsaw to make a few cuts….easier than using the handsaw, and I can see the cuts better.. Used a board under the part, to save the top of my bench. Still was a bit rough trying to clamp these in place. Like before, I chopped about halfway down, then flip the board over..(Mountain Dew was from thursday..yuck) And complete the chops, nice when I c...

A computer desk #8: Dovetails and migraines

01-12-2019 05:39 PM by bandit571 | 7 comments »

Usually not a good combination….seemed to have “lost” a day…. Plan was to do through dovetails, to connect the four sides of the desk unit….didn’t quite go as plannedLaid out a few tools…to do the lay out work… That bevel gauge…the angle it’s end was cut at….turned out to be the same angle I wanted for the pins.. Was going to use those dividers to set the spacings….I merely came in from each edge. And whatever th...

Shop stuff #145: The bathroom Reno...Getting started on the vanity build

01-10-2019 11:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I am finally getting a chance to get more up to date on things. In this video I start building a vanity for the bathroom we are renovating. Made from mostly solid cedar to go with everything else we have done so far. I go through the process of getting the basic cabinet fitted together. View on YouTube

A computer desk #7: Frame installed, desk sides milled

01-10-2019 04:14 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Two trips to the shop….with naps inbetween…fighting a chest cold…among other things… Frame came out of the clamps...Sanded smooth and flat. Missed those slotted holes….went with a few counter bored holes…three in the front and back rails, and one in each end rail….1-1/8” screws, again. Milled a block of tapered Ash plugs, glued those in place, then trimmed them flush.. There IS a plug sitting there….honest.. I was going to fil...

A computer desk #6: foot rest, frame details

01-09-2019 05:11 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Got the base out of the clamps…and set up to install the “foot rest” .....One will get centered..about 9” back from the front of the legs, the other will be around 5 – 3/4” or so from the back leg… Two holes, two drills…third for the 1-1/8” screws. Drill the counter-bores first, switch drills, and drill the pilot holes..dab of glue. Rotate, and do the other ends…base can now be set aside… Viewed from the “front&...

A computer desk #5: Sunday's Workout

01-07-2019 08:38 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Needed to change to a cove bit on the router….legs, aprons and stretchers needed their moldings done, before any glue ups could be done. “Router lift” to adjust the depth of cut… I was going to clamp the parts to the bench, and mill the coves…bench was still set up for the mortises I needed to chop….clamped the parts to the tablesaw’s wing.. I’d run the router up to the clamp, then move the clamp to the far end, then finish the cutsR...

Got a late start today….waited until after Lunch…meandered to the shop about 1 pm̷...

Vise rehab #1: Start up

12-28-2018 04:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, back in 2015, I picked a vise up at a Tractor Fest…..And got it installed on the end of my bench..where I do most of my work…. And was informed this couldn’t be an end vise…hasn’t a place for a dog to go…so.. A chunk was added to the moving jaw…and a few dog holes drilled. Well, after 3 years of use, and abuse… The pine was getting a beat beat up….end cap of the bench was looking beat up….I had a couple chunks of Ash&#...

Shop stuff #143: A table for the TV

12-22-2018 03:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

My neighbour asked me if I could build a table for her TV to sit on. Originally, she wanted it painted, I talked her out of that after I milled up the stock for the legs. A lot of work using re claimed and left over wood but it turned out pretty decent in the end. I made this one a longer format as the holidays are upon us and I thought something to settle in and watch would be the way to go. This may depend on how well you get along with the rest of the family and how much alcohol is con...
