Living Room Display Shelves #5: Wow - that is awesome! Oh NOOOOOoooooo........

02-19-2013 02:49 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

I started assembling the shelves. The backside of the narrow shelf was first. I was going very very slow but I was marvelling at how well it was coming together. I kept pullng out the carpenters square and the level. It was getting hard to contain myself. You see, my cuts were fitting so well that I’d check to see if I had it square and there it was. Not a 32nd of an inch off. I Got the first backside finished with just the 3 main stretchers and stood it up in the garage. It ...

Another Cheap Table, for a TV this time.

Laid out a few junkie boards. Well one was junkie, anyway. Pretty, ain’t? Needed to scrub away the junk on the outside, so I could at least see where I was cutting.. Little scrub plane was taking too long, so I got out a slightly bigger one Clamps might get in the way on a cut, so a couple 2” long screws to hold it in place, for my saw to do a rip cut I ripped a blank off the plank, turned the plank around to the other “good” side, and ripped again. ...

My TINY shop renovation #7: Shop built leg vice

02-18-2013 03:14 AM by StayinBroke | 4 comments »

Ok, so last time I had finished my pegboard cabinet and was getting ready to start on my vertical drawers, or sliding book shelves, sliding cabinets, whatever. I haven’t quite gotten started on those yet. I was getting ready to. I got a few of the boards cut and was getting ready to start building them when I realized I didn’t really know how. I started looking around at the different types of wood joints and finally settled a couple I’m going to use for good sturdy sliding ...

Video Quick Tip

02-13-2013 07:32 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 22 comments »

I ran into a situation where my clamping needs exceeded my clamp capacities. I did a quick video to share my solution because it might help someone else in their shop. This video is “quick & dirty” because I wanted to try recording it on my iPhone. I don’t see myself doing that again, but the information is still good and clear. I hope you find it helpful. Your friend in the shop, Todd A. Clippinger Share the Love ~ Share the Knowledge

Ok, front and back leg assemblies are out of the clamps. Need to fit a brace between the front and back apron. Since this is a Hand Tool exercise, I guess i will do it that way First a piece of scrap needed to be cut to length. Nice Sycamore Handled Crosscut saw. Next, lay out for a Dovetail. One on each end. I used an old router bit to mark out the dovetail shape. Then a little saw work Then cut out the waste with a chisel. I chop down at an angle to match the shape...

Well, she is almost finished. The back is on and there are just minor details left. I was pleased with how the back turned out. I was wanting it to contrast with the rest. My daughter didn’t really want this, but once it was on, she really liked it. Thanks for looking everyone. The next time I post on this, it will be a finished project.

My wife gave me four 1/2” tool bars and 12 carbide cutters for Christmas from my wish list. Wanted to try some Easy Wood carbide type tools at a reasonable price level. To hold the cost down my wish list specified bars and cutters from Big Guy Productions and then turn my own handles for them. Step 1 – Turn HandlesThe project star...

Roubo #3: Wagon vise, legs and tenons.

02-01-2013 03:53 AM by bondogaposis | 5 comments »

I got around to working on the Roubo a little bit more this week. Here’s what I got so far. I installed the wagon vise. This took quite a bit of fiddling to get it working smooth. I don’t know about you but when I get frustrated over something I find it best to just let it go and come back to it later or the next day. Generally a fresh approach makes everything go smoother for some reason. With the wagon vise done it was time to work on the legs. Here is the glue ...
