Cherry Box of squares #5: Lid work

11-17-2016 10:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, just to get caught up a bit. Sized the lid’s frame parts for length, and started to dovetail the corners.. Four pieces, all nice and smoothed up, and then checked to make sure they would fit the box.. Then start with the dovetails. While normally I start with the pins…for some reason I wound up doing the tails first.. Not the best looking ones, pins looked better.. Hardest part for me is to remember which side of the lines to saw on.. Otherwise, I get loos...

Next Kitchen Project #7: Face frame installed..plugs done

10-24-2018 02:40 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

two trips to the shop, today… one to drill and install the parts for the face frame. One drill for the counter-bored hole, then another to do a pilot hole, so a third drill could drive the screws….clamps to pull thing together..to where they needed to be…bead of glue on the back of each part….19 holes to plug,,, I kept the cutout from the bottom rail….figured it could provide enough plugs.. Didn’t burn a one! Drill press was still in “Lo...

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...

A project in Maple #2: Hey, glue ups!

09-21-2017 01:28 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Today, was much better. Even remembered to turn the shop light and the fan on! Goal was to get at least the front assembly glued up, and a start on the back assembly.. Last two mortises were chopped…did a few fittings with the rest of the parts. There was another panel glued up….took it out of the clamps, and used the two completed raised panels to mark out for size…..blank was an inch shorter than I wanted…..decided a wider center stile would work….set...

Shop storage projects #9: The dresser build, side #2 is started...

01-16-2017 04:42 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

After a few other items were taken care of. Got an early wake up call this morning. Seems one of the Shop Cats caught a small Black Bat. She even brought it upstairs to show off her catch….squeaking all the time….of course, the bat got away from her. Finally trapped the little critter under a broom. And with the help of the dust pan to hold the critter, I did a Catch & Release, right out the back door of the house. Last seen, the bat was flying west, as fast as it...

Mixer stand build #1: Getting Started: Legs and top

12-05-2016 02:42 PM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Yep, using soft pine. Not confident enough yet to spend the $ on hardwood. This could just end up being a prototype if I don’t like how it finishes but it wont be used for chopping. Updated Plan Gluing up the legs: Taper Jig ready (haven’t made it adjustable yet) Gluing up the top. Need some shorter pipes for my pipe clamps. 5’ pipe clamps on a 16.5” wide top. “ha!” but I needed their strength.. Top ended up with a slight twi...

Cherry Box of squares #2: Maybe a glue-up?

11-08-2016 02:21 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I had a stash of lighter coloured wood to milled into a panel for a lid.. Got most of these resawn down to around..1/2” thick. Had to surface a few to get close to that size. Jointed all the edges. Those beads on the boards? I ripped those off, as I can always make a new bead. Crosscut to almost the same length…..width was coming up a bit too narrow. Found a piece of cherryand jointed it to fit. Might as well put it into the center of the panel? Ok, Nor...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

A project in Maple #3: Another glue up, with problems

09-24-2017 02:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Thought I could get another glue up done….. Like before, I milled a few tenons. Shoulder cuts on the mitre box, cheek cuts on the bandsaw. That shoulder plane helped tune a couple tenons… Got out the old mortise jig….It was set up for these 3/4” thick rails. Chopped the center mortises in the rails…stiles are 4/4 thick, had to re-adjust the jig…..to chop a few mortises… BTW, Dog holes are an excellent way to keep chisels from rolling of...

Even got a few things done! Right after this morning’s Blog post, went to the shop. Had the panel to be raised.. Once that was done….started on the frames to hold the raised panels….Had some “leftovers” took those to the existing panels…..marked for length. Marked for width at 1-1/8” wide. Set up the resaw jig. Ran all four stiles through. Then ganged them up, after cutting a foot detail on one end.. #4 smooth plane was still out, u...
