Stepback Cupboard in Pine #16: Catching up,2....case done, door start

03-19-2018 02:47 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, face frame out of the clamps. Stuck against the case, to mark out where to put a few screw holes at… These two came out, once the frame was laying on the bench.. Scratch awl to make a starter hole for the 3/8” forstner bit. Then drill a pilot hole.. Once all the holes were done, I moved the frame off the bench, and placed the case on the bench…Had an extra hole to fill. It just gets a counter sink. Bead of glue run around where the frame meets the case...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #7: Assembling base

01-14-2018 04:32 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Due to the 8/4 material I used for the legs, the 4/4 aprons needed to be rebated to maintain their proportion to the legs and the integrity of the leg mortises. Machining the rebates in the long aprons was part of the reason I built the miter gauge extension, the other being the notches for the cross lap between the aprons. I completed the machining after work yesterday and fit the parts together; the fitting was minor a few swipes of a chisel and light sanding and I had a good tight fit. ...

A little time off #3: Time for a glue up

11-04-2017 10:25 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First, I needed to make a bottom panel, and some grooves to fit the panels ( 2) into… Dry fit, to get the size of the panel…close.. need grooves, though.. Set up the Stanley 45 with the #13 groove cutter. Built a jig on the bench….so the sides would stay put.. Get one side grooved along both edges, the do the other long side….adjust things to hold the shorter ends.. Made a bunch of “noodles” Once all 8 grooves were done, I checked how t...

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...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #15: Bookcase, face frame and top

03-19-2018 02:01 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to get caught up here…Face frame: Stanley 45 and a #22 bead cutter.. Two cuts to make the outside corner, a single for the inside edges…The top rail only got one bead. Fancy cuts, to produce a tenon, once I got sizes figured out.. Then made a few cuts into the stiles… And made a few mortises.. Top one was easy. the one for the bottom rail? I had to get things fine tuned, for the beads to line up just right Spread some glue, add some clamps.. ...

Well here is how I go around my projects. I enjoy this faze of the project. First a general idea of what I would like the project to look like. Then I look for inspiration from the web, general dimentions and so on. I found this, traditional japanese bath stool. This is FROM a google search.

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #18: Last drawer and aPIP

03-26-2018 02:02 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just getting caught up….had a few health issues over the weekend… Had a blank for the skinny drawer’s front, cut and fitted to the opening..needed to rip a board down to make it, and these three parts… And, with my usual luck..the two side pieces were 3/4” too short….made do, anyway… Front gets through dovetails, to match the other drawer. Saw a few lines.. Chop about half of one side’s pins, flip the board over, and pop the rest ou...

A Stepback Cupboard build #7: Door is done....

01-11-2018 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, I did get a panel glued up this week.. And let it sit a day…..today, it came out of the clamps. Marked for final width, and a rip cut made on the bandsaw. Then face planed to remove some high spots.. Along with jointing the sawn edge. Width was now set, length was about as close as I could get it. Marked a line along one end, to do a bevel across the grain….. Panel raising. This panel is a bit on the thick side. (more on that in a bit) Paul Selle...

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

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...
