Bed Frame, out of Pine #4: Grooves & Dry Fits

05-21-2018 01:59 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

The 2×4 rails need all the tenons done, and a groove ploughed… Rail that had the first set of tenons done…Stanley 45 was still set up….fence needed tweaked a bit, to better center the groove…plane was still set tad tad too deep.. Nice thick curls look nice, but the plane is a bear to push…lightened the cut a bit, added a bit of candle wax,,,pushed along much better. Unlike the posts, I can run the plane all the way through.. Then laid out the set ...

Big cabinet for the new home #3: Design change, big dado setup, rabbets and an oops.

05-13-2018 01:55 AM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Design change. More difficult but I think this one looks much better. Primarily changed up the door design to go inset with an upper and lower cabinet and with more glass panes. Went from 6 to 12 doors. We still haven’t decided on the detail for drawer fronts. Crown molding will be more ornate. Compare to the original. I was really concerned about getting the interior dados lined up for the sides and back. I knew it wouldn’t go together well if they weren...

Coffee table #1: Some pics of my daughters coffee table

05-13-2018 12:47 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi all, I was asked by daughter #2 to build a coffee table of her and her partners design. I had some Tasmanian Blackwood floating around in the shed which I thought would be nice for the frame and had some beautiful 1/4 sawn tasmanian Oak at the wood club that was free (old church pews) which I thought I could use for the top. Although the original intension was a live edge piece. This can be changed easily at a later time if she still wants the slab top. The Oak for the top, while ...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

A Box of Fancy Pine #3: Moldings from scratch?

05-08-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

OK….Moldings. Still had some of that fancy grained pine…and I wanted to add a molded bottom edge to the box… Drew a “pattern” of sorts….to lay out where each cut will go. Decided to use the Stanley 45 for the first two cuts.. Step 1 was a bead. This board was to make a pattern, for the actual molding…so I could reset the planes.. Step 2 was this “cove” cut. I had ground a profile on an old cutter, to make a trough for auge...

A Box of Fancy Pine #2: Almost assembly time

05-08-2018 11:14 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, plan was to have a divider in the middle of the box…so, mark out for a dado to be milled.. Then more work with the backsaw…. Then a chisel to clean it out….. Hand plane to smooth the divider up….was a tad rough from the bandsaw…and you can see the planning stop. Then, this is where the cussing began in earnest….Kept trying to dry fit all the parts at once….got fed up, and then just spread the glue, added the clamps, and a couple cauls...

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...
