OK we are out of the clamps with our project and we level the legs. Next we do a little more finish sanding and spray our finish. *Note one thing I forgot on the video I buy adhesive backed felt and put on the bottom of the feet to ad that “Pro” touch to it. Enjoy and if any would not mind doing me favor, how about leaving some reviews on iTunes for me. Thanks In Advance, Huck
I spent most of last night carving the neck for my Les Paul Jr., a process that is somewhat tedious, but also a lot of fun. The carving was done with an oscillating spindle sander, files, a spokeshave and a card scraper. The first step is to rough out the height of the neck. First, I took measurements of the heigh of the neck using a caliper, which I measured against the plans for a ‘59 Les Paul. In this case, I used the first, seventh and twelfth frets as reference points. Using a c...
Using up some scraps here…..just made the basic boards today. Tomorrow I hope to work on the corners and edge treatments and juice grooves and then get them soaked with Mineral Oil : ) Thanks for looking ! Ooops ,sorry …... Where to add photos here ?
In this episode I glue up the shoe rack. Then I used mineral spirits to clean up any dust or glue squeeze out.
Each of the strips is milled cut and ripped to the following dimensions: Thickness: Little less than 1” Width: 1.5” Length: 21” There are Five strips each of maple and cherry. I glued up the panel in two sections using an extra maple strip to separate them. Two strips on the end are glued together, but are not glued to the adjacent maple spacer strip or the other 8 strips. I did this primarily because I only have so many clamps at this point and my planner is only 10...
I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of Ipé from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw. I cut the dadoes in the rail to fit the seat supports w/a router, then drilled holes for walnut dowels.I tried use the best SS screws I had, but the 1st one snapped, and ...
Episode 73 Panels from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I go through how to make a panel. I cut the panels down to size at the router table but there are a lot of other ways to do it. The 4 panels I made are for a curved top chest.
One of the things I’m most thankful for about this project is all the lessons I’m learning, relearning, and getting a new appreciation for. Dimensioning the boards for the top 100% by hand has proven to be a lot of work, but I’m loving every bit of it. Planing these boards has been a real challenge considering that they’re a foot longer than my current plywood + hardboard bench top. I’ve had to be creative and to attack that problem; finally coming up with a g...
I have two of these that worked fine until the fixed end snapped off. being a cheapskate i kept them around figuring they might be good for something. cleaning up yesterday i looked at them and an idea struck me: why not use them as holdfasts? here it is: what remains should be plenty strong since it’s better reinforced and doesnt have as much torque applied to it. the dud end stays in place and is held beneath the bench through 3/4” dog holes. the only other modification (...
Got back down to the Dungeon Shop, figured it was time to hand plane some parts smooth. That way, I can reference off the pieces better. Corner posts were first up. Set up a bench hook of sorts. More of a plane stop. Added a piece of thin scrap to one side, square to the end cleat. Placed the first piece in, and added a screw to keep things tight. Plane stop itself is screwed down through the scrap pieces, as well. Won’t bother the bench’s top, anyway. Plan...
