Well, the cussing has begun…... Decided to mill a few tenons on the ends of the aprons…..Discovered I NEED the spur installed as soon as it gets here on my Stanley #45…..as I “Fired” the Wards #78 today. First off, I laid out for a tenon Didn’t want a tenon the full width of the 1×6, so.. Cut off a 3/4” x 3/4” square on each corner. At least there is less to work on….Got the Stanley made Wards #78 out of storage and star...
Needed something better than a TV Tray as a bedside table. Off to Lowes for a few things.. A 1×8 x 8’ was needed to build a topA 1×4 x 8’ was needed for aprons and other small parts ( Drawer, maybe?)anda 2×4 x 8’ was needed for leg blanks Grand total? $20.16…....Cheap table? Small circular to crosscut the 1×8 into three 27” long blanks…..Jointed the edges.. With a Stanley #6c small jointer plane. Laid the three down...
Spent most of the day working on this box. When I removed the clamps, I found one corner that hadn’t glued up… So, got out the glue, and a couple big clamps. Trickle the glue into the open joint, and crank the thing tight.. I also took a bit of time to clean the other end of the box up.. Block plane to level things a bit. Since this is the bottom of the box, it would be nice if it would sit flat.. Set up the Stanley 45… With a bead cutter….I think it...
Ok, wasn’t the plan to work on a Monday in the shop…just kind of happened… Thought I could just size two plywood panels to make the lid and the bottom panels….Marked one out, thinking I could use that to mark a second one, once the first was done….bandsaw cuts were a bit..wavy. Got out a plane to un-wavy them.. Got a Junior Jack plane to joint the edges straight. Checked the ends with a square….recut, and then joint THAT edge. Then go through ...

I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...
I had been tossing around the thought this I want a better work bench. The problem is, I don’t have much money or time to build one. As a commercial truck driver by trade, I’m only home for a little more than 1 day per week, and much of that time is taken up caring for my kids, house and volunteering in the Scouting Organization. But, like every other wood working enthusiast, I know I need to just make some time to do what I love doing. So on each weekend that I have even just ...
Also known as Box Joints. Not saying this is the “perfect” way to do these, but, this is how I do them. First off, I get the four sides all milled to size. Nice when they are the same width and thickness So, for this little “How to”, I have these Pine boards. I made them about 3/8” thick, and all are about 3-1/2” wide.Boards can be about any size, but they need to be close to the same size no matter how thick or wide they are. I start with t...
