Walnut & Cherry, new project #3: Stanley 45 time...

09-09-2017 01:53 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I have the Stanley 45 all set up….need to mill a few tongues on the end pieces.. Called a “Match” cutter, cuts a 3/16” wide tongue, for a tongue and groove joint… Fence sits below the cutter. As this were designed to mill up to 4/4 stock, a 3/4” thick piece will have a bit of overhang. I raised the depth stop up, out of the way, as the cutter has it’s own. I used this set up, to hold the end pieces still, long enough to mill the edg...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #2: Out of the clamps..

09-08-2017 04:20 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, where was I? Got the two sides out of the clamps.. Side One.. Was trying to see IF I like the “flat” panel look….not..Side two. I think a Raised Panel look will just have to do… Which leaves the ends to make. Collection of planes were the ones being used. They need smaller stiles….made it a bit rough to use the 45….still had a 1×4 slab…I could make the grooves first, rip the part off the slab, and keep making parts. Too...

Chest of drawers is done…still have a pile of “leftovers”... A small stack of Cherry….a 1×4 x7’ plank of walnut, and a few other odds & ends…. Decided to resaw the Cherry a bit, so I planed them to about the same thickness and width. Made a jig for the bandsawTo see IF it would help with these tall boards. Meh….Brought the Walnut plank to the shop….made a few crosscuts… It had a section that needed to be…gone&...

Shop stuff #103: Photo frame

08-30-2017 02:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Perhaps the longest title of any video I have made. It started out as a simple build, but, as is my habit, I complicate it a bit. There is also joinery that I was not completely satisfied with, although it did come out OK for my first attempt at a half lap mitre,so I did a “fix” to it. Sometimes accidents are a benefit. Lots of hand work, which I love doing, but sometimes the machines just have to come out. View on YouTube

Cedar Entertainment Unit #9: Shoji screens coming together finally haha

08-27-2017 09:41 PM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

I still have a bit of work to do on them but I can see the end of the road. I have used all traditional methods to do the joints etc on these and have learnt a hell of a lot about accurate marking and cutting, a long and quite difficult but very enjoyable task!

Maple Chest of Drawers #15: Last drawer, and a PIP

08-24-2017 07:48 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok….needed to get the last drawer DONE.. Wasn’t happy with the sides I had stash back for this drawer. Cut two sides from the maple plank the front and back came from. Atkins crosscutsaw’s turn, as I try to rotate the saws through a job. Jointer planes to get things all the same width. Drawer front and both sides need ripped to width. Marked a few lines around, got out the usual suspects, as I had ran a saw on the ends.. As usual, pins get done first, then t...

Maple Chest of Drawers #13: More drawer, and other follies...

08-21-2017 01:19 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Again, more of a catching up…. Decided to try to add the plywood back to the case…..on a Monday? Usual stuff went on… I was just going to get a measurement on what size of a panel I needed to cut out of the 4’ x 4’ panel….was.. One thing led to another,,,,,had to lay the panel ON the dinning room table to mark out two lines needing cut….wound up outside on the patio, using a roll-around cooler as a bench, to saw the panel out….grrrrr ...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #28: Violin and Cello Stick Clamps

08-20-2017 01:50 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

I have a project coming up, so I’m gearing up beforehand. I have a cello to repair in a fairly major way. The larger clamps are for the cello, though they may be long enough for a double bass, or at least not a full size one. The smaller clamps are meant for violins, though they may even fit on a viola. The sticks are 1/4” dowels and the heads are mahagony. There is a slight chance the heads might come off even though they are glued, so I may pin them before use. The cla...

08-16-2017 04:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Always seem to be a fight during the first drawer build…..if it has been a while between builds… Ok, more of a catch up on how things are going….both on the thumb, and the project X-rays this morning show thumb has healed….been in the splint a bit too long….NOW I get to loosen it up to where it will bend like new, again….to do that, it was back to the shop today.. Ok, Drawers: Laid out a few drawer fronts… These were the “easy ones...
