Wooden Shackles #4: Accents Not Going as Planned

10-03-2018 12:55 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I had a thought (this is normally where my projects go wrong) and wondered if I could put some nice accents on my shackles like the real woodworkers do. Maybe some peg caps, or at least fake ones that make it look like less bland. I bought a selection of plug cutting bits and tried the 3/8” one to make small circles. I used a 3/8” inch forsner bit to make the holes … The problem came when I discovered the 3/8” plug cutter doesn’t in fact cut 3/8” ...

That OddLots Ad #24: Sanding, milling, roasting..

10-01-2018 04:46 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Ok…shelf is in.. That missing piece on the drawer’s front is replaced….a back, of sorts, was added behind the drawer.. Open area below that is fore cables and cords to come through, from there on down is for air flow to the heater. Last night, after the Big Parade downtown, did a bit of sanding…cleaned up the drawer’s dovetails and the repaired corner.. May add a bead around the drawer..will see after this is upstairs. Far end of the top was cut to...

Wooden Shackles #3: Production and Practice

09-30-2018 01:28 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I decided to move forward with the styles and designs I’ve made up so far, stained them and I’m letting them dry at the moment. I chose to experiment and stain one set with PVC primer which is purple, I was surprised how well it worked! As a choice to try and do something a little more complicated I drew out a rounded set and cut them on the bandsaw, a tool I was always nervous about. But after sanding and tinkering I’m happy with the result. The plan...

Moxon Vise Build

09-28-2018 12:31 AM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I made this Moxon vise to bring my work up to a comfortable height when laying out and cutting dovetails and other joinery. The vise is 24 inches between the screws so I can clamp wide boards. The vise has really good clamping pressure and like all the Benchcrafted hardware I have seen, everything operates smooth and fast. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vBXvlP4bEs

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...

A simple Pine Stool #2: Day 2 and three

08-24-2018 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Both trips to the shop were a bit short….one was governed by how long the dryer needed to run…the other was until the back said STOP. Got the panel out of the clamps…and planed flat. .Still using that same old plane…Stretcher got some lines drawn on it, and sent to the bandsaw…came back like this.. Used it to lay out for two mortises.. Note to self: LEAVE the lines…better fit that way… Dry fit…also marked which way the wedges will g...

Chest of Pine Drawers #10: Plugging along

07-18-2018 02:26 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Was a very busy day, yesterday…..so I’ll post this in a couple episodes today. First off, needed to get the case off the bench. To do that, I needed to make a bunch of plugs, install them…and then trim them all flush…. Veritas 3/8” Tapered Plug Cutter.. It does have a bad habit of biting off a plug, now and then. I try to avoid any knots, as well….a pin knot got “plugged”, anyway…Cutter ate 2, chewed up a third, and that pi...

Chest of Pine Drawers #9: Face frame, and a back

07-17-2018 04:43 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Trying to get caught up….from a “Lost Weekend” and a VERY BAD Monday…..somehow managed to get a back installed… The way the case was…26” wide..vs..24” wide panel…..laid the panel sideways ( 48” wide?) and cut one panel to fit. Will get the other section in a moment….you will notice I have the face frame installed. Just 6 sticks of pine.. Glued and screwed in place. I used counter-bored holes, and will fill them wit...

Shop stuff #130: Work on the shop finished.

07-16-2018 08:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Picking up where we left off last time. I build a torsion top to replace the old table and make some improvements to the function of the mitre saw. It also gives me a place for some future drawers. Then I get everything put back in place and the shop functional again. View on YouTube
