African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #7: Assembling base

01-14-2018 04:32 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Due to the 8/4 material I used for the legs, the 4/4 aprons needed to be rebated to maintain their proportion to the legs and the integrity of the leg mortises. Machining the rebates in the long aprons was part of the reason I built the miter gauge extension, the other being the notches for the cross lap between the aprons. I completed the machining after work yesterday and fit the parts together; the fitting was minor a few swipes of a chisel and light sanding and I had a good tight fit. ...

A Stepback Cupboard build #7: Door is done....

01-11-2018 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, I did get a panel glued up this week.. And let it sit a day…..today, it came out of the clamps. Marked for final width, and a rip cut made on the bandsaw. Then face planed to remove some high spots.. Along with jointing the sawn edge. Width was now set, length was about as close as I could get it. Marked a line along one end, to do a bevel across the grain….. Panel raising. This panel is a bit on the thick side. (more on that in a bit) Paul Selle...

A Stepback Cupboard build #6: Drawer fitted, door started

01-09-2018 01:33 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, got the drawer fine tuned, once it came out of the clamps.. Dovetails now look a bit better…..Installed two strips of scrap onto the runners in the case, where the drawer will slide. Added a pair of shiny knobs…. So I can pull the drawer back out. Knob details? Nothing real fancy.. Drawer was sticking a bit…easy fix. I let the case sit over night, to let the glue holding the guides strip in place cure. Pulled the drawer out, and ran a #4 plane along t...

A Stepback Cupboard build #5: A drawer building day

01-07-2018 12:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I got the clamps off, and things laid out… Drawer front fits…I removed the rest of the clamps, and moved the case so I could have a bit more elbow room… Hauled the Pine 1×6 to the shop. Set up to cut a pair of drawer sides. A Disston D-7, 10ppi crosscut. That green can was also needed, today One end was a tad off, used the mitre box to trim it down to match the first one. You would think, that both parts coming from the same board, would be the s...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #2: Panel Glue-up

12-29-2017 06:53 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Got the main panel glued and in clamps this morning. I learned from some issues I dealt with on the last panel: this time I cut the matching joints with one board face up and the other face down, hopefully that will remove any saw inaccuracies and create corresponding angles in the joint. I also used the new Porter-Cable plate joiner my pop gave me for Christmas (Thanks Pop!) to better align the boards and deal with the slight bow in one of them. Seemed to help align the panels while glui...

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Shop stuff #112: A simple shelf (hand tool only build)

12-12-2017 01:08 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Well, I uploaded this one a couple of days ago but with the new algorithms on You Tube I put it as private first. They are all getting tagged as unsuitable for advertisers and then you have to request a manual review, when it passes, then make it public. More hoops to jump through. With the few dollars on You Tube I make I can’t afford to miss those first few days that it generates, and even that is not much. I probably don’t get a cup of coffee per video…lol. This on...
