Underway again...finally #9: Progress... seriously.

11-18-2017 03:27 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

You read that correctly. I made actual progress. (This is not fine furniture. It’s a workstation that will remain outdoors 24/7 and is made 99% from freebies [CL and pallet wood]..... It’s also the first real project I’ve ever done – since high school 45 years ago, at least.)Here’s the end of Day 1 pic as proof:No, it’s not screwed and glued together. Just placed it all in approximately the correct final places. So, here’s how the day went. First, ...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Aprons and Legs

11-16-2017 02:15 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Guess I forgot to post this one, my progress last week on the table base. Using my shop made taper jig, I tapered the insides of all 4 legs and started cutting the cross laps in the aprons where they meet in the legs, everything went very well, aprons squared up nicely and fit the legs well. I’m happy with how sturdy everything ended up, almost no movement in any direction even in dry fit. I am waiting to glue it until I decide how I will slot the inside face of the apron for the table top...

As I wanted a pair of beads run all the way around… Started on the ends first, then the sides, reset the fence a bit, and go around again.. Beads had to be low enough for a sliding lid..saw cuts were made.. Down to the top of the bead. mitre cuts on one end, then a plunge cut the split off a “handle̶...

A little time off #3: Time for a glue up

11-04-2017 10:25 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First, I needed to make a bottom panel, and some grooves to fit the panels ( 2) into… Dry fit, to get the size of the panel…close.. need grooves, though.. Set up the Stanley 45 with the #13 groove cutter. Built a jig on the bench….so the sides would stay put.. Get one side grooved along both edges, the do the other long side….adjust things to hold the shorter ends.. Made a bunch of “noodles” Once all 8 grooves were done, I checked how t...

Shop stuff #108: Pencil box in walnut and maple

11-02-2017 09:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

A rainy day today and finally some time to edit video. This is a small pencil box I made for my daughter in law who is going back to school to learn how to help people. My first grand child was born to her 6 months ago and I wanted to make her something that was a bit more common in my time, yet still practical now. View on YouTube

Monday….got the sides glued up…..Traced the bottom panel, after the sides came back out of the clamps,,,bandsaw to remove the excess. Press fit into place. helped square the sides up…then just some nails, no glue, to hold the bottom in place.. Then used the tray to mark how far down to install the rails. Three screws each, no glue…then a tes drive.. Then the important part…does the lid close, without hitting the tray? Got to thinking, dangero...

Making a home for my 45 plane #2: Ideas for a Box

10-08-2017 01:33 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

So after putzing around on the computer for a while I settled on the Japanese style toolbox. There are many articles on them, but I settled on the style that Christopher Schwarz had a drawing for here: https://blog.lostartpress.com/2013/03/24/japanese-tool-chest-measured-drawings/And then made a box here:https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/326395 I also liked the box that Brad made here on Lumber Jocks http://lumberjocks.com/projects/196978I wanted the plane to stand upri...

my crosscut sled with only one fence

In this video, I try my best to explain the process that I used to make this crosscut sled, which I will only use when cutting miters.This is one of the most important jigs in the workshop, and would advise anyone who hasn’t made one, to put this on the To-Do list.https://youtu.be/ynZK8CQtXu4
