Pine Auger bit box #3: Holder #1, test drive

10-18-2016 12:04 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Not too sure I like how it is going. Played hooky today, tomorrow I find out about my version of Big Ben’s Knee. Got pretty worn out trying to get ONE holder done. Block was short in length by..~1/8-1/4”....have that fixed. These are the bits I am trying to build a holder for….and, These are the drills I thought I’d use to make the holder.. First hole wasn’t that great. I tried holding the block at a 45 degree angle in the vise. Bit followed th...

Pine Auger bit box #2: Finger Joints!

10-13-2016 11:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

GrandBRATS were being just that ….BRATS. Decided to try to hide in the shop for most of the day…...would have worked, too…..but I got “ratted out” by the Shop Cat. He kept banging on the door to the Dungeon Shop, until somebody let him in…....Drat. Well, I checked the four sides, found one was a bit out of flat. Not from warping, just the dummy running the bandsaw. Clamped the offending part to the bench, and plane things flatter.. Corners w...

Walnut Night stand #5: NEVER work on Mondays

09-13-2016 05:04 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Yet, somehow I keep forgeting that one rule…. Came away from the Doctor’s visit, needing X-rays and Dr. Feelgood for a sore knee, I now have a Handicap thing to hang in the window of the van,,, I thought that somewhere in the shop, there were a few wood screws. Slotted heads, hopefully Brass ones….nope. Went to Lowes, to by a few screws…..#8×3/4” round head, slotted Brass screws…...that were priced like they were gold plated. 3 little ...

Walnut Night stand #4: Leg work, van work, leg work

09-11-2016 01:43 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Just one of them days…..while waiting on the help to rouse himself out of bed…..went to the shop for a little while. Set the beltsander into the vise. The three leg blanks were wavy, and a couple were a bit fat. Turn the sander on, and hit the lock button. Held each part on the moving belt until the saw marks were gone, sides were flat. Found out that the inside curve was a decent enough of a match.. That it would fit the front roller. Got rid of some other saw m...

Walnut Night stand #1: Started up

09-08-2016 04:55 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, the Cherry box is awaiting a delivery this coming Sunday. There is a little bit of leftover Cherry sitting around. Time to cut the other slab down to size? This used to be 7’.....cut the top slab at about 38” long. The other two add up to about 4’...Decided to cut the long slab down a bit.. Took a lOT of candle wax to cut through 2-1/4” thick slab. What I though was another slab of Cherry, turned out to be… Walnut. This slab was 9/4 thic...

Cherry finger jointed box #7: Glue up, and other thing for the lid

08-31-2016 01:28 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, snuck back to the shop for a bit. The sides for the lid needed a bit of rounding over… The problem was here in the corners, Didn’t want the one roundover to run through the others. The shorter ends, I could just run through, the longer ones I did not want to on the insides. Got the short ends into the vise….what to round over with? too small for the corded router, did not have a small enough bit, anyway. A few passes with a block plane solved that. Not a...

Cherry finger jointed box #6: 2 days of lid work

08-28-2016 08:05 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Managed to sneak down to the shop, the other night. Set up a jig to plough some grooves Called a K.I.S.S. Jig…..About the only way I could think of to hold these lid frame parts still, long enough to make a groove. Set up the Stanley #45 Wasn’t enough room in there for the sliding section, left it off. A #11 cutter was used. Candle wax to make things slide better. Nice Curlie Qs? Tried a second one.. 2 for 2! Ok, these were the “short” pieces. As...

Cherry finger jointed box #4: Bottom panel and other things

08-23-2016 07:30 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, I was going to clear a path to my mitresaw bench, but. I’d have to move a lot of “stuff” out of the way, just to use that mitre saw clear back by the wall, just for these three cuts? Well, THAT ain’t going to happen, so how about I clear off the bench’s top, and add a smaller mitre saw there? One, I unfold the GEM, add four screws to attach it to the bench’s top. That saw was way too big. And, must have been a thicker saw used at some po...
