Pine Project, 4x4s #2: Leg work to do

01-05-2016 12:51 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, this project is to see just what I can build with just those four leftover 4×4s. So far, there is a “top” awaiting so more plane work. Letting it season a bit, first. I also have a few blanks to make aprons out of….a full 4/4” thick ones, too. Which leaves the stuff from the fourth 4×4… Had a few leg blanks sawn The four were ganged up, with one end flush. Measured out 24” and mark a line across with a square. This way, all fou...

Had to run to the jobs site today to make sure one of the subs had everything he needed (of course he didn’t , but hey, he works 14 hour days on Sunday’s!)Anyway on the way back home I saw a little yard sale going on so I pulled up and found this gem of a hand saw, pretty damn rare and one I don’t have! It’s a Harvey W. Peace Brooklyn New York with the 1887 Patent Date! It’s in pretty good shape too! And if you guys read my stupid blog you know I am a...

Shop stuff #73: Sally's Coffee Table Part 10

01-26-2017 05:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I finally get to the end of the wood work and start finishing in this one. It is hard to believe there was so much to it. It was a long and challenging build and despite being very ruthless in cutting things out, there is still a ton of video. View on YouTube

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...

Living Room Display Shelves #5: Wow - that is awesome! Oh NOOOOOoooooo........

02-19-2013 02:49 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

I started assembling the shelves. The backside of the narrow shelf was first. I was going very very slow but I was marvelling at how well it was coming together. I kept pullng out the carpenters square and the level. It was getting hard to contain myself. You see, my cuts were fitting so well that I’d check to see if I had it square and there it was. Not a 32nd of an inch off. I Got the first backside finished with just the 3 main stretchers and stood it up in the garage. It ...

A Peruvian Walnut Cradle #3: We have the pieces, let's put it all together!

10-26-2011 07:37 PM by jusfine | 3 comments »

Finally I can begin to assemble the pieces and get this project finished before she grows up and leaves home… In order to clamp the cradle sides and ends, I had to fashion some “brackets” or cauls to support my clamps which would keep the same angle and stay off of the dovetails while I glued it together. Since there was at least a week between cutting the pieces and assembly (I had burned my left hand in a yard fire and that kept me out of the shop for almost 4 d...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #1: Tool chest, the corners get shaped

02-04-2014 12:28 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to cut some items into parts for the corners. Need four skinny, and four wider pieces. The “skinny” ones will gain the thickness of the parts they mate into, at the corner. Measured how much room i needed before making the foot cut out. Hmm, about 15” or so. The i found something round to layout a curve for the foot. Ah, an old dust port for a router. Then drew a line down from the circle, about 1” from the outside edge. Then continued the ...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...
