Stepback Cupboard in Pine #2: Second Panel done, and a clean up..

02-24-2018 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Second panel was glued up…. Used the old jointer again….This time around, the clamps were a bit different. Started with the middle clamp. Got all three boards in the same “plane” and made sure they stayed put. then worked my way towards the ends….the cauls were doubled up….Less marks in the good wood. Far end used a pair of Visegrip Finger clamps to hold the pair…got a little crowded. Good thing the clamp was already tightened down...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #12: Build-a-drawer, 101

03-11-2018 08:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

two days to build one drawer? I am getting slow in my old age… Anyway, this may be a bit long, better get settled in…. Cut this to size..goal being to build a drawer around it. Had a couple “left-overs” for the sides, they needed to match in width and length…Length was at the bandsaw, later the mitre box. width was the easy part. Then “shot” the end grain straight..Set the sides aside for a bit. Corner joints will be through dovetails&...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #10: Catching up, part 2,making a top panel

03-09-2018 12:16 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, got the 1×8 x 8’ plank to the shop, somehow….had the bench cleared off, and ready to do a bit of work… Saw was needed to make a few cuts….needed three pieces 27” long…lay out a cut line.. Making sure the line was hanging over the end far enough to miss the bench vise…. Was trying NOT to include this into one of the pieces.. But, to get rid of this ugly thing, I had to use it’s little brother.. We have ways…..the fir...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #8: Part 2, the Sunday Follies

03-05-2018 04:25 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hand tremors…PITA to do woodworking with. New meds may be the cause, will find out Monday. Anyway, this morning, I was still house, and puppy sitting….once they were done with their business outside, and laying down for their all-morning naps…I could head to the shop for a bit…had to rearrange a little bit.. Moved the case a bit ( those pipe clamps are nice, but a detriment to knee caps) so I could use the mitresaw.. Swung it over to the “45” st...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #5: Mortise work..

03-02-2018 01:22 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, mortises to house all them tenons. I used a tenon to do a layout for each mortise… I left the stile sit out a bit from the jig, for a reason.. The little Disston No.4 backsaw was used to saw the waste….open ended mortise ( they blow out anyway in Pine) but I could only saw at this angle. I tried to either stay inside of the lines, or at least split them… Then a mortise chisel to dig a hole where the saw couldn’t reach….then come in from the end...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #17: Build a door

03-21-2018 09:57 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trip to the Blue Borg….wound up with a pair of CLEAR 1×6 x 4’ boards….Got those cut to length….had to rip the fancy boards to remove a couple bad knots.. Both boards had a knot like this….Figured out how wide I needed for the panel…made a couple rip cuts. Has more waves than the N. Korean Cheer Squad….We have ways.. Also cleaned up the edges on the “new” boards, was finally able to glue up a panel.. I also cut grooves i...

A Stepback Cupboard build #13: Build a door?

01-28-2018 01:21 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Not sure IF this is the hard way, or the easy way, to build a door….About 11:00 am started down to the shop…going to be a LONG day.Got the panel out of the clamps..wasn’t too bad, really…..set up to square the ends. Little 6” circular saw to make the cuts…..then tried to flatten the faces of the panel a little bit better.. Meh…work in progress, was also trying to decide which face looked the best…..coin flip?Set up one other power tool.. ...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #2: Panel Glue-up

12-29-2017 06:53 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Got the main panel glued and in clamps this morning. I learned from some issues I dealt with on the last panel: this time I cut the matching joints with one board face up and the other face down, hopefully that will remove any saw inaccuracies and create corresponding angles in the joint. I also used the new Porter-Cable plate joiner my pop gave me for Christmas (Thanks Pop!) to better align the boards and deal with the slight bow in one of them. Seemed to help align the panels while glui...

A Stepback Cupboard build #10: Shelves, and a top shelf

01-23-2018 05:40 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Won’t be quite as long winded, this time around…..Had three blanks for shelves…..they needed to fit into the sliding dovetails I milled into the sides. Had the router set up.. With a fence. Needed a way to support it, while making a cut…..decided to gang all three blanks up.. And do a few test runs.. They were a bit ragged, but a small file soon cleaned them up.. Had a few errands to run…came back and made a few more cuts..Got all six pins done,...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #3: side panels worked on

02-25-2018 03:28 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got both panels done, for now….one of the rare days I could spend an afternoon IN the shop.. Once I figured which face goes to which face, I stacked the two panels together, clamped them up. Then used the saw /router guide to square both ends. Then, since the panels were still clamped up, I jointed the edges… Had to use the jack plane on a couple knotty spots, then the big guy could finish up.. Less time hauling the 10 pounder around, that way. Left the panels cl...
