Custom Buffet #6: Drawer Construction

265 days ago by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

It has been a struggle, but I finally managed to get the drawers built. I made drawer stock by gluing up discounted (50% off) lumber purchased at the lumber yard. They sell “shorts” – boards that are less than 48 inches in length in various widths. I made the drawers out of poplar with the exception of the pull out tray. It is maple. With the boards glued up, I then planed them to just over 5/8 inch. Then I switched to the drum sander and sanded them to 5/8 inch th...

Small Pine table, with a shelf

268 days ago by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Found a few boards to use. Got the one 1×6x60” cut down into three boards. Glued up into a panel, and then flattened with a couple handplanes. I have a large, plastic tub sitting under the bench, to catch a few shavings Between the top, and a pine shelf, it got full kind of fast. Sawed a couple found 2×4s into some leg stock. Plan (Plan, I have a plan??) was for a notch about halfway up the legs, to house a shelf. Grabbed a small saw, and knocked off a corne...

Custom Buffet #5: Drawer Fronts and Brick!

274 days ago by MT_Stringer | 10 comments »

Time to make the frames for the drawer fronts. The pieces were narrow and some were small so I set up a featherboard to help safely guide the pieces past the cutter. They turned out nice. The drawer fronts will have flat panels. I could have used either plywood or mdf but NO! Instead, I glued up some short pieces of poplar, planed them to almost 3/8 inch thick, then ran them through the drum sander. Next, it was cut to final size, then rout a rabbit in the rear so the panels would fit i...

278 days ago by Tugboater78 | 5 comments »

between my constant war with my phone and losing pictures and forgetting to even do much posting on this blog they are few and far between. Not to mention putting a lot of overtime at work and life in general..you all know how that goes. it’s not a big deal anyway, I am an insomniac so this gives me something to do while I am up all night.. I almost bought a new/used 14×24 shed this past weekend, but i didn’t get back with the sellers quick enough and they sold it late sat...

Texas Star Inlay #2: Completing the Inlay

285 days ago by cakman | 3 comments »

Here is some more progress of the inlay. I started off by lightly tacking the star in the position I wanted and tracing the outline with a sharp knife. Light strokes at first and then gradually deeper. And then using a chisel to remove a little v notch. This allows me to cut slightly deeper with the knife and establishes the outside shoulder of the inlay mortise. It also gives me a visual barrier to look out for on the next step. I chucked up a small straight cutting bit in m...

Leg Vise, Shop made #1: How many times can you remake something?

302 days ago by Jeremiah | 0 comments »

Originally i was going to include my adventures in vise making, into my blog about my new work bench. But the farther along i got and the more mistakes i made, the more i realized it should be separated. Here was my goal:1. build a leg vise that is extremely strong and worked well.2. Not to spend a fortune (ie +$300 for the BenchCraft kind)3. Try out some new ideas – could i use regular threaded rod? – is there a better way to make the stop on the bottom part of the ...
