Stepback Cupboard in Pine #16: Catching up,2....case done, door start

03-19-2018 02:47 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, face frame out of the clamps. Stuck against the case, to mark out where to put a few screw holes at… These two came out, once the frame was laying on the bench.. Scratch awl to make a starter hole for the 3/8” forstner bit. Then drill a pilot hole.. Once all the holes were done, I moved the frame off the bench, and placed the case on the bench…Had an extra hole to fill. It just gets a counter sink. Bead of glue run around where the frame meets the case...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #15: Bookcase, face frame and top

03-19-2018 02:01 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to get caught up here…Face frame: Stanley 45 and a #22 bead cutter.. Two cuts to make the outside corner, a single for the inside edges…The top rail only got one bead. Fancy cuts, to produce a tenon, once I got sizes figured out.. Then made a few cuts into the stiles… And made a few mortises.. Top one was easy. the one for the bottom rail? I had to get things fine tuned, for the beads to line up just right Spread some glue, add some clamps.. ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #14: Bookcase started

03-15-2018 10:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, Those two longer sides, needed a rebate added to them. Once I figured out which was the “inside” “top”, Back and bottom and have both match….Clamped one side into the vise on the bench.. Checked the Wards 78 to see how it was set up.. Might be about right? full length shaving. Got both rebates done.. This will “house” the plywood back panel… Time to lay out for a few sliding dovetails… Used a book to set the sp...

Octave Mandolin #20: Custom Octave Mandolin

03-15-2018 03:10 AM by Tomy Hovington | 1 comment »

This project was commissioned and was quite the undertaking. My customer wanted a Octave Mandolin with a archtop and flat backboard. Since there was no blueprints to make such an instrument I had to do research, compile information and sketch my own drawing to even start the project. This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer. Maho...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #12: Build-a-drawer, 101

03-11-2018 08:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

two days to build one drawer? I am getting slow in my old age… Anyway, this may be a bit long, better get settled in…. Cut this to size..goal being to build a drawer around it. Had a couple “left-overs” for the sides, they needed to match in width and length…Length was at the bandsaw, later the mitre box. width was the easy part. Then “shot” the end grain straight..Set the sides aside for a bit. Corner joints will be through dovetails&...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #10: Catching up, part 2,making a top panel

03-09-2018 12:16 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, got the 1×8 x 8’ plank to the shop, somehow….had the bench cleared off, and ready to do a bit of work… Saw was needed to make a few cuts….needed three pieces 27” long…lay out a cut line.. Making sure the line was hanging over the end far enough to miss the bench vise…. Was trying NOT to include this into one of the pieces.. But, to get rid of this ugly thing, I had to use it’s little brother.. We have ways…..the fir...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #9: Catching things up, face frame installed

03-08-2018 11:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Amongst other “chores”....Doctor Visits, VA paperwork, the usual distractions… Anyway, I got the mortise and tenons done this week on the face frame…even did a glue up.. Had to cut a bit away, so the beads can wrap around the openings.. Will need a little clean up. Let the frame sit a day….then started an install.. Test fit to mark where the counter-bored screw holes would go….then drilled both the counter-bores and a pilot hole at each mark....

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #8: Part 2, the Sunday Follies

03-05-2018 04:25 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hand tremors…PITA to do woodworking with. New meds may be the cause, will find out Monday. Anyway, this morning, I was still house, and puppy sitting….once they were done with their business outside, and laying down for their all-morning naps…I could head to the shop for a bit…had to rearrange a little bit.. Moved the case a bit ( those pipe clamps are nice, but a detriment to knee caps) so I could use the mitresaw.. Swung it over to the “45” st...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #7: Face Frame, part 1

03-05-2018 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Rough day in the shop….first trip did not go well, was making mistakes, could not concentrate on things…ran the Stanley 45 along the wrong edge…..hands were getting too close to sharp objects….closed the shop. Went back upstairs until the mind could focus on the jobs being done. Much safer that way. Did not leave any “Fresh DNA” on stuff in the shop. Kept stewing about it all day long..it kind of got me irish up…...was finally able to calm...

House sitting and Puppy sitting today and tomorrow…and trying to get a little shop time in…Hauled two plywood panels to the shop…one for shelf panels, and one for the back of the case..thinking that would be it, for the day…not. had trouble marking the one panel for the size of the shelf….a sign of things to come.. Thought I could use either the 6” Skil saw, or the cordless one…..could not get past the case to get either..decided to use a handsaw...
