Bridal chest #2: Side prep, box joints, and assembly

07-18-2014 07:03 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

In the previous installment I prepped the wood and glued it up. This time it’s a little after prep, box joints, and glue up. With the biscuit joiner the glue ups became pretty well aligned. I had to do just a little planing and scraping.. .The the old reliable ROS and mirk sandpaper to it. I find it easier to pre sand panels before assembly. Then redo and finish them up after. .After a little thinking, I made a box joint jig for my router. The sides are 3/4” thick and the...

Bridal chest #1: Prep / glue-up

07-18-2014 06:46 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

My youngest daughter is getting married in September. I’ve decided long ago that i’d make each (I’ve got two) a bridal chest when that time came. Well it’s here and I’m doing it. I’ve made blanket chests before but they’ve been made with raised panels. This one is much simpler. Almost Shaker in nature for the design. It will have large finger or box joints at the corners. I think I’ll make a simple jig for my router to accomplish that. It will b...

Just for Fun... #84: Square Wood from Round Branches...

06-26-2014 02:57 AM by littlecope | 15 comments »

This has been a perplexing enigma to me for many years! The old-timers would just split it (roughly square) and then square it up with progressively finer Tools… And that works very well, but there’s a lot of time spent doing it!I’ve had a Bandsaw now for over a year, and it’s supposed to have this capability all of its own… With the right kind of set-up…So, in the back of my mind, I’ve been pondering what kind of Sled was needed to do this… ...

Jewelry Case Build #6: Tiny Drawers, Tiny Rabbets, Tiny Dados!

06-20-2014 08:40 PM by RoadHogg | 1 comment »

Continuing with the tiny drawers, of which there are six, I constructed a little “cabinet” for them to sit in. They basically just sit on little shelves, negating the need for slides etc, which in this case, are not at all practical due to the size of this case. Nothing rocket science here, just fiddling with 12 little drawer fronts/backs and 12 little drawer sides. All 24 pieces got a small rabbet in the bottom edge and the sides each got rabbets in the ends where they will m...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #1: You can never have enough clamps, especially parallel clamps

06-04-2014 07:04 PM by paxorion | 3 comments »

I think I have a problem. I love clamps so much that it must be infectious, that my 2 year old daughter gets excited when she sees clamps. My wife has pointed out that I probably have more clamps (built up in 2 years) than her parents keep in stock at any point in time (they run a hardware store…). I’m in denial that I probably have enough clamps to get this hobbyist through most projects they I may undertake in the near future. Recently I have begun building up my supply of w...

Pecky cypress goodness #1: Shop cabinet build

06-03-2014 03:33 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

I needed some shop storage and I wanted to use some pecky cypress I was given. So I figured drawer fronts of pecky cypress would be an awesome start. So I started by getting some free plywood after some old cabinets were demo’d on a job I was on. I would’ve preferred European style cabinets but didn’t think about it until after I milled and assembled the face frame. Here is the carcass from reclaimed wood. Cabinet set in place with face frame attached. Yes, I used a kre...

Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #4: Table top finally glued together

06-02-2014 10:07 AM by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

So, if you’re reading along, you know I have some so-so 2X4’s acclimating in my shop, that I have to turn into clamp cauls, so I can hopefully glue my table top together. Let the boards sit in the shop on stickers for 5 days to acclimate hoping they recover some. The twist and bow issues are reduced by half, but still makes for more work than I wanted. It’s summer in Arizona now, my open air garage shop was 100-105 last two afternoons. So I can only get a couple of h...
