Shop stuff #65: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 5

11-28-2016 01:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, it is a long series, and going to get longer…..lol. In this one we get the feet roughed out and some actual joinery done, mortising the feet and legs together. I get some new saws too. After I see myself working with them I realise I have to improve my body mechanics and form. But I am having fun, and to me, that is the whole point. View on YouTube

Cherry Box of squares #6: Grooves done, and a glue up

11-20-2016 10:32 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, Stanley #45 is set up to make 1/4” wide grooves… Jig has been made. Then a few swipes with the 45.. Cut a groove in the top edge of each side. Then a test fit or three First one showed the panel was a bit too long. Trimmed it a bit, and remade the bevel. This morning, I went back to the shop. The bevels needed fine tuned, had a few spots that were a bit too fat, Spokeshave, block plane, #3 handplane, and some 80 grit wrapped around a wood slat. Worked al...

View on YouTube Hi folks! So this past weekend I turned a bunch of free industrial pallets into a new workbench! I still have to add a vice and some shelving down below, but the main bench is finished!

Cherry Box of squares #5: Lid work

11-17-2016 10:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, just to get caught up a bit. Sized the lid’s frame parts for length, and started to dovetail the corners.. Four pieces, all nice and smoothed up, and then checked to make sure they would fit the box.. Then start with the dovetails. While normally I start with the pins…for some reason I wound up doing the tails first.. Not the best looking ones, pins looked better.. Hardest part for me is to remember which side of the lines to saw on.. Otherwise, I get loos...

Cherry Box of squares #4: Glue-ups

11-14-2016 10:52 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Dryfit came out decent enough…. Somehow missed that one side was a hair shorter than the opposite side. Will just have to deal with that. Got to the point I could spread some Elmer’s around… Somewhere, in the midst of that forest of clamps is a box…...let it side for a day….. Ok, today the clamps came off, wore me out just doing that…..Decided to clean things up a t bit.. Set the box in the vise. Any holes got a dribble of glue, and a pi...

Shop stuff #63: Coffee table Pt 4

11-14-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, a coffee table needs legs right? In this one I make up the slabs for the legs of the coffee table. Lots of cutting and milling and work with the hand plane. In the end I have 2 nice blanks to be used for the legs of the table. I experimented with a new intro and outro and getting some different angles on some shots. I also kept it under 20 minutes. Makes more episodes I suppose. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #62: Part 3 of the Coffee Table build

11-09-2016 04:43 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Continuing on, I get the top ready for glue up and get it put together. Some preliminary work on flattening it and getting it cut to size and shape. By the end the top is pretty close to being done as far as working the wood. View on YouTube

Cherry Box of squares #2: Maybe a glue-up?

11-08-2016 02:21 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I had a stash of lighter coloured wood to milled into a panel for a lid.. Got most of these resawn down to around..1/2” thick. Had to surface a few to get close to that size. Jointed all the edges. Those beads on the boards? I ripped those off, as I can always make a new bead. Crosscut to almost the same length…..width was coming up a bit too narrow. Found a piece of cherryand jointed it to fit. Might as well put it into the center of the panel? Ok, Nor...

Shop stuff #61: Coffee table pt. 2

11-02-2016 03:23 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After lots of editing and cutting and experimenting with my editing software, I finally got part 2 done. Here I am getting the top roughed out some more and slowly bringing it into what I want. Hours and hours of work over several days. It does not seem like it when you watch a video. I have to point out that my power tools are not particularly quiet, I pull the volume back on those sections. I watch a lot of You Tube videos, and edit mine, using headphones, and getting your ears blasted...
