To Give is better than to Receive

04-24-2017 01:53 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...

Works for me..Got the top fitted, now for the bottom… Wider board means more dovetails to do…...

Saw Til #1: From scraps to a til

04-10-2017 01:42 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well at least the start of one. Inventory after the Table build, showed a few decent enough boards sitting around.. Got to looking at all the saws in the shop, mostly hanging overheard from the Dungeon’s ceiling joists. Figured I could cobble a til out of some of the scraps. Had a 1×6 that seemed long enough for two sides, but it wasn’t quite wide enough….had a couple 1×4s. One of them needed jointed to make a glue joint. Offset the two 1×...

Potential solution for end vise wracking

04-05-2017 09:28 PM by Oldtool | 1 comment »

While working on my current project of a TV Credenza, I had the need to clamp for the planing of molding on the front edge of my bench. As mentioned by many others on this site, my end vise was wracking, and I tried the usual solutions – wedge, spare pieces of wood, shims, etc., but found these to be somewhat of a pain in the neck. Thinking about it, I decided to use the far runner in some form of clamping procedure. I went to Lowe’s, secured a 7/8” dowel (the diameter of...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #20: Neck Clamps for Violin, Cello, etc...

04-03-2017 05:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

There are at least two instruments in the shop that need necks reattached. I was shown how to do this when the entire neck is detached, but two cellos are broken at the joint and the method shown me might not work so well. Google to the rescue! I found photos of commercially available models, selling for multiple tens of dollars, and decided I could make my own. I used some of the mahogany at my disposal, some 3/8 in. threaded rod, and some sheet cork I was given a few years ago. ...
