More working with Pine #7: Slats are done for the back...

05-29-2016 12:16 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

At least. Spend some time getting five slats resawn out of a 4×4.. Found of of these had a shortage of knots. Cut it down to 26” long. Then, marked a line just over 2” wide, and resawed the excess off. Set that aside with the other two.. As I can make seat slats, or armrests out of them. Set the main event so I could slice off 1/2” thick slabs, 2”wide.. Since I already had the side on the bench, I could lay out the slats as they came off the ban...

05-21-2016 06:46 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Side #1 was completed today.. The tenons go into “housed’ joints, where I trim the area around the stretcher, where it meets the post. I just saw a bit on either side, chisel a flat spot, ajust the tenon for length. Clamped the other rocker to the completed side. had some marks to transfer over to the next set of posts. After messing up the notches in the rocker the last time by doing the posts first. This time around, I made the notches first. Set the square to...

Curved Front End Table #6: Pulls, Finish and Final Assembly

05-14-2016 01:04 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

This is the final video in this series. Before final assembly, I finish the piece with shellac and Waterlox for the cherry, and water based poly for the maple parts. I also show how I made the custom pulls for the doors and the drawer from ebony and maple. I show how I hide the magnetic catches for the doors so they are almost invisible. Then it’s on to the task of installing them correctly on the curved surfaces. The rest of the interior pieces get installed, the top and back get...

Another simple little box? #2: Glue ups, just glue ups

05-03-2016 04:06 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Some went nicely…some resulted in clamps flying across the shop….Ever try to clamp up a thin panel? Finally, to stop all the hijinks going on, used the vise to hold the two flat, and then added the clamps. Had rebates to mill along the bottom edges of all four sides.. The 78 to mill it, the shoulder plane did the clean up…except for my floor, though. No longer have Igor for broom work, I guess I get to do that. laid out the recess for the shoulder plane to sit ...
