Cherry finger jointed box #3: Stanley got his groove back

08-22-2016 02:46 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I had the plane set up, might as well see what it can do You have keep an eye peeled, and watch the fence. Otherwise, the plane will wander off to the side. Candle wax helps the plane to slide along better. I got to the point that only the thumb was near the knob, three fingers were shoving against the fence. LIGHT cuts help, too, at least in this stuffFinally got all four sides done, and the grooves even matched! And, by cutting through only half the width of the “fin...

helping another woodworker

03-27-2018 01:36 AM by bladedust | 5 comments »

I met another woodworker who is downsizing and getting rid of his clamps. He’s not having much luck on Craigslist, so I offered to help him out by posting to the Jocks. I hope I’m not overstepping and I hope I am not posting to the wrong area so forgive me if I am and please let me know so i can correct it. That said, here goes: 18 bessey “K” clamps. from 24” – 96” see pics. some minor use, but nearly all of these have never been used. Included ...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #1: Idea for a low cost work bench solution

03-14-2017 04:30 PM by Questtut | 0 comments »

I had been tossing around the thought this I want a better work bench. The problem is, I don’t have much money or time to build one. As a commercial truck driver by trade, I’m only home for a little more than 1 day per week, and much of that time is taken up caring for my kids, house and volunteering in the Scouting Organization. But, like every other wood working enthusiast, I know I need to just make some time to do what I love doing. So on each weekend that I have even just ...

From cut-offs to.... #3: top is done, tenons as well

06-15-2018 01:59 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still sore today, decided to try to get something done Like a few bevels?The other end grain bevel was done like the first one….also used a different #4.. A #4c model….Made in England.. Cuts a might deeper than the other Stanley #4 I have….Used the Millers Falls to get things close, then the final work done with the #4. Ok, ends are done, next was the long sides… This time, it was more of holding the plane at a”skew” and going along un...

Mistakes and fixes #1: My back traacking box

11-29-2016 03:17 PM by SouthernMNwoodart | 5 comments »

Made a lot of mistakes on this one, which caused me to learn a bunch of new tricks and fixes. Firstly, I shouldn’t have used crooked wood for the box sides. I knew what would happen. All the corners were bad of course. I cut them out! Then when I was doweling the new corners, they cracked. Just wanted to show my project that I love and hate and maybe hear some feedback, or other horror stories.

Making a home for my 45 plane #2: Ideas for a Box

10-08-2017 01:33 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

So after putzing around on the computer for a while I settled on the Japanese style toolbox. There are many articles on them, but I settled on the style that Christopher Schwarz had a drawing for here: then made a box here: I also liked the box that Brad made here on Lumber Jocks wanted the plane to stand upri...

Maple Chest of Drawers #10: Face frame follies

08-08-2017 06:12 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Sunday was a Road Trip….thought I would try Monday to do a little work in the shop.. Got three parts for face frame rails dovetailed. Needed to run the jointer over them to get them all to match each other…Fighting clamps while doing this, is not fun… Thought I’d get a bit fancy with the wider top rail…. But, when I went the chop out the matching pins….they merely broke off….Grrrr Tried the sockets for the main rails.. Which meant lif...

09-19-2018 12:10 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Waited until after lunch to start in on this…mess. Searched all through the house, and the shop…looking for c clamps of any sort….I think they may be related to pencils…both seem to ran away and hide. Managed to track down a pile of the critters.. Even cut a few cauls….might need a couple? And made sure there was enough glue…hate to run out in the middle of things ( brand new bottle sitting off to the side, just in case…Ok..first item..the bo...

Chest of Pine Drawers #7: A little assembly...

07-09-2018 04:06 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well…the cussing wasn’t quite at Drill Instructor level…..more like Squid level…..I made sure that fan was hauled to the shop, this time… And set on “HIGH”...goal was to get the case up onto the empty bench. Slide the loose side off the frames. Figures, had to turn the case around, had one frame that wanted to stick….with the frames still sitting there, I could attach the kickers…with a spot of glue and a screw at each end. I th...
