10-29-2018 07:37 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, Sunday….nasty, dreary, rainy outside the windows…..even a Hail Storm came through….seems when we get a lot of rain…the Dungeon gets a small creek running across the floor to the floor drain….. Life in a basement….of course, the creek HAS to go through, right where I’m working…. And each rain shower, a new wave would come downstream. Ok…had a door to repair.. I had went ahead and drilled corner for a deep counter bored hole&#...

Next Kitchen Project #9: Drawer Building 101, part 2

10-26-2018 03:54 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I had the Stanley 45 all set up to plough grooves for the bottom of the drawer to reside in. Made a jig, to hold the front and the two sides.. Just three sticks of scrap….third one to hold the part down. Front was done first, then the jig was changed to the shorter length of the sides.. Got both of these sides done. Then it was time to tear the Stanley 45 down, and set it up for dados.. Exchange the #12 cutter for this #18-1/2 cutter ( matches the thickness of the pi...

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...

Next Kitchen Project #6: face frame and a back

10-23-2018 05:32 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

had some time to kill, waiting on the Boss. Decided to fix the tablesaw, and see what I could get done…Hauled a plank to the shop….will be cut into parts for the face frame…first, the saw needed some work. Mitre guage isn’t the biggest…at least it doesn’t rattle around in the slot. Found a STRAIGHT scrap…attached it to the mitre gauge.. It has a pair of slots for screws. Strip was a bit long, so I ran the mitre gauge down both slots.. ...

Next Kitchen Project #5: A little assembly?

10-22-2018 09:45 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Needed to mill some rebates, get the second frame done….and buy some screws..Second frame, the one the drawer will be sliding on… Was glued up, spent most of the day waiting on the glue to cure…rebates? Set up the Stanley 45. Once I figured out which were the backs of the two side panels, I could mark where to put the rebate,,clamp each side panel to the side of the bench.. Mr. Stanley does NOT like knots, had to chisel a couple out of the way… Decided t...

That OddLots Ad #29: Final PIP..

10-09-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Before this thing is brought upstairs, insert and backs installed, and posted as a Project… Sanding was done. Then a coat of this stain was brushed on…I thought about using these latches for the doors.. As they match the rest of the hardware…. Was then informed by a Design Guru, that such latches are CHEAP, and the look sucks? One on every corner…..Let the stain dry a while…..happened to remember I had a wee bit of Walnut scrap sitting around. Firs...

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” ...

Ok, yesterday’s shop time was split up a bit…..first half was grooves and dados…second half was drawer assembly.. One of the elements to this project involve this little heater insert.. Giving it a test drive. Electric Fireplace insert…Just like the “Prototype” Those “Drawers” were fakes… So, design was changed a bit. case grew another 6” in height, and 4” in length…keeping the 16” in depth. The fa...
