Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #4: Glue Curing Box

02-17-2015 09:19 PM by ruddhess | 5 comments »

Here is what I did yesterday: made a long box to keep the wood and glue warm while curing. Everything I needed was laying close at hand – literally! I had four old closet doors that I used as shelves a long time ago that were standing in the corner. I had used a couple of them as a flat work place to start gluing up the boards for my slab. I found 8 little metal angle braces with screws that I had bought a while back and never used. It is 78” long (my 72” boards fit j...

What to do with a Walnut slab.. #4: Getting the last of the mortises done..

12-01-2015 05:29 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Well, since the last time I was here…...Got a glue up somehow done. Test fit wasn’t too hateful…..tried to clamp it up with glue on the tenons…... Well after letting that mess cure for a day or so…... Did you ever have to use a hammer while clamping up a glue up? One Pipe clamp kept trying to rotate right back off….Add a c clamp to put a stop to that. Had to rotate the second one, for a better “grip”. Then had to add the third...

Another simple little box? #1: A start up, and some finger joints

05-01-2016 03:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Again. Well, a trip to Lowes produced a couple of boards….3/8 by 5-1/2 wide. One was 2’ long, the other was 3’. Laid out the two planes that will go into the box. Needed a length and a width..But, before too much got done, decided to clear the deck, and clean it up a bit…. Seems it has been abused lately.. Anyway, once I got a length, I could grab a crosscut saw and saw to a line.. Just barely leaving the line.. Hey, the original “Cordless...

my crosscut sled with only one fence

10-08-2017 12:59 AM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

In this video, I try my best to explain the process that I used to make this crosscut sled, which I will only use when cutting miters.This is one of the most important jigs in the workshop, and would advise anyone who hasn’t made one, to put this on the To-Do list.https://youtu.be/ynZK8CQtXu4

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #9: Finishing up the tail vise

03-19-2015 12:57 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Yesterday the last thing I did was cut up that big walnut board and laminate two pieces for the leg vise. Took it out of the clamps this morning and I think I’ll wait for this Sunday before going forward with it. After I was done yesterday, I was in the house and heard this big crash. I never did find out what it was until this morning I saw the walnut glue up had fallen off my table saw and bent one of my hand screw clamps. Oops. In the meantime, I worked on the d...

Just for Fun... #11: Wrapping it up...

01-08-2010 05:24 AM by littlecope | 16 comments »

Not much left to go here! We left off with the box in my make-shift box vise, with the hinges glued in place…I began yesterday by cutting and cleaning-up as many pegs as I’ll need to pin them on, in this case fourteen.Then I’ll measure to set the Drill Stop depthSetting the Drill Stop. I used a couple of spare boards to get close to the height, then fine-tuned by adjusting the drill in the chuck a little…I had pre-drilled these pilots slightly undersized to create less...

I picked all of this up on 9/15/08 for $15

09-16-2008 11:16 PM by oldskoolmodder | 10 comments »

I have a friend who owns a sawmill/lumber business, and I stopped by to pick this stuff up from him (yesterday) with absolutely nothing in mind. Only possibilities of what could possibly be one day. But you might have a part in what I build with some of it. If you have any good suggestions for me. I’ve got a while before I’m recovered from my hand injury (see my other blog entry), so since I won’t be using the machines anytime REAL soon, I need to occupy my mind with i...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

12-15-2013 06:36 PM by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...
