Shop stuff #119: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash

03-24-2018 01:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

You just have to keep trying new things. I thought I would try making a bent lamination for the first time, and, since my son in law plays guitar, a guitar stand seems to be a logical place to try. Here in part one, I prep the stock and get the bent lamination done up. It was a fairly straight forward process. I was expecting some spring back when I took it out of the clamps, but that assumption was incorrect as it held shape great. I am also trying out some new things with my videos. S...

06-03-2018 05:34 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had the tenons on the aprons done… And ran the Stanley 45 along two edges, to form a bead. One side, then stand it up on edge, to complete the bead. Outside corner on each leg also got a bead detail…Laid out for the mortise..Gather up the tools to chop the hole.. test fit the tenon.. Until all parts could be dry fitted together. Top got “rounded” And set aside….after a glue up.. Found the flattest spot in the shop’s floor, and go...

Spring Bench #1: Building a bench around an 1800's wagon spring

06-30-2018 03:26 PM by Jim Jakosh | 20 comments »

My friend Leon Kytle in Idaho Falls gave me this old spring from a wagon seat from the 1800’s and asked me to design a bench around it and give him the plans so he could build one too around the other spring. I drew it up in Arizona with the bend up and down and decided it looked better with it bent down. I made us templates of the spring curve and gave him a drawing of how I was going to make it. But when I got home he called and said he thought the spring should be wider for stabil...

Chest of Pine Drawers #6: Dry fits, top done, and other follies

07-08-2018 04:32 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Sides were trying to cup a bit…Let this set a day….while I did some figuring…. OK, today…hauled any and all clamps that were upstairs to the shop ( yardsale finds) and a few other goodies…Got the panel for the top of the case, cut to size….once al...

That OddLots Ad #9: Face frames, a start is made

09-13-2018 12:34 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

While waiting on this computer to wake up, and repair itself (never did….) decided to haul the rest of the Ash 1×6s on hand to the shop…. Would have been nice to just glue these three up into the top of the case….like everything else this morning, there were “issues” going on. Issue #1 Issue #2.. Kind of hard to glue up a panel with these involved. Third plank had a couple knots along one edge…Well, I could cut these down into parts fo...

That OddLots Ad #16: a top gets glued up

09-21-2018 10:34 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Going to be a big one, tooHad the three blanks about the right size..edges needed some work, though.. Plane is a Stanley No. 8….10 pounds..24” long…planks are 57-3/4” long. Far end is jammed into the bench’s Crochet..there is barely enough room between the near end, and the washer behind me. One edge jointed, then another, check for gaps.. Wider of these two will be the “front” edge of the top…had both edges to joint…made a lot o...

what to do with a walnut slab #2

11-23-2015 11:19 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well had drywall to do for the weekend, kind of got behind on the Walnut Project. Last seen, I had a glue up going on… Jointed a pair of edges to book match them. Used a Jointer plane for that. A Stanley #7c works nicely. Got out a few clamps and the glue.. Two clamps under and a clamp over in-between. A piece of sandpaper was between the clamp and the glue. No stains that way. Let this sit a few days, until I could get back down there…. Removed the clamps toda...

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...

Roubo-ish work bench #1: Laminating the Top

01-02-2017 05:37 PM by galooticus | 1 comment »

First blog post! I’ve been making shavings for about two years now using this monstrosity vaguely resembling a bench: It’s the most incredible bench ever, measuring in at a roomy 11’ long and 36” high. Has two shelves and even supports a kitchen sink attachment, however the previous owner either didn’t spring for it or took it with them. EVERY surface is curved (great for setting planes bottom-down, no need to worry about the blade dulling) and it rocks...
