Standing Desk of Cherry #9: Lid work, hinges, PIP

07-13-2017 01:52 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I went back down and planed every edge.. Glued on the Book Rest..Fans…gotta have them ON..Cleaned up the dovetails… Fitted a gap filler for the bottom.. And got things ready for hinges….Bookrest was even planed smooth.. I also used this same Stanley, Made in England #4c to clean the dovetails up. Didn’t do too badly on the figured wood… Did I mention how I hate doing hinges?Have to dig out a space for the hinge to set in (on a beveled edge...

So I had some flies in the shop and I wasn’t in the mood for sharing my adult beverage. I had a light bulb moment and this is what I came up with… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbcMOO8SGOI

Standing Desk of Cherry #4: More leg work, glue ups, dry fits...

07-02-2017 01:13 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

trying to get something done….had too many irons in the fire, bound to forget something…. Cross stretcher has been planed smooth, and a bead cut on all four corners. Bought a set of carving knives, just to clean the beads up. I removed the glued up side from the clamps, decided to “pin” the joints. Drilled a few holes.. A little glue into the hole, and drive a dowel through.. Coping saw to trim the excess dowel, block plane to smooth things out. Se...

A short video this week. Continuing to organise the shop, I finally get around to replacing the old clamp rack. Made at little expense from cut offs and left overs it is an easy build that works quite well and can be altered to suit. View on YouTube

Pine Pantry Cupboard #7: Back is completed

06-04-2017 04:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, a little bit of catching up.. Had a couple strong armed ( and back) youngsters ( 22 and 24 yr olds) haul the case up out of the shop… And get the Boss’ approval. Finished pantry will go against the wall… And replace this “too small” cupboard. Today, I decided to bring things upstairs to cut the last piece for the back. I have a saw bench outside on the back patio. Hauled the tools upstairs with no problems…..getting the back up th...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #6: Shelves done, back is started

06-02-2017 04:29 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, got all the shelves done.. even after having to fix a couple.. Shelf #2 and #3 needed adjusted a bit….right sides were a bit lower than the left, and #3 was the worst. Errors tend to add up faster than the IRS. Once the fix was done, I added cleats for shelf #4 and #5…..that was the easy part. I used a box of Mash Potato Mix to set the heights of the cleats, and a framing square to to the cleats level front to back. Today, I had to clear off the bench.. Added a...

Making a 3/4" bushing for my router....Way outside the box!

05-31-2017 03:35 AM by woodshaver Tony C | 27 comments »

I’ve been waiting and waiting for a guide bushing set that has a bushing to fit a 3/4” bit through it. It’s been 14 days now and it still hasn’t showed up yet. The other day I was straining my brain a bit while watching TV .. well the TV was on but I wasn’t paying much attention to it. Because I was thinking about how I could make a bushing for my router to fit a 3/4” bit. I came up with this idea. I only took a few photos of what I did so you’ll have...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #5: Shelves getting installed

05-31-2017 12:49 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Things are moving along now. Managed somehow to clear just enough bench space to cut the first plywood blank into a few shelves. Shelves neede to be about 27-1/2” long, maybe 14” wide. Bottom shelf was done first, as the others will reference off of it. Had a couple cleats cut to just the right length. Used those to mark the saw cuts. Framing square to connect the dots. That little saw was set to barely cut through the plywood. First one was cut, and installed.. ...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #4: Top installed

05-30-2017 02:51 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just a quick catch-up…Got the blank for the top out of the clamps. Laid it up on top of the case. Marked how much to trim off. Set up the jig on the bandsaw, and cut for width. Framing square to mark the ends square, bandsaw to trim. Cleared a BIG spot on the bench,, And used the Jumbo Jack to flatten both faces. Block plane for the end grain, and make a slight bevel to the edges. Took a quarter out of my pocket, and laid out a curve on the front two corners.. Then u...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #3: Face frame, and a little assembly

05-28-2017 04:44 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

See IF I can get caught up here… Top of the face frame while clamped up…..someday, I will have shorter clamps…Hard hat area! Test fit the top webframe, as well.. Down at the bottom, I did find a few shorter clamps….bottom webframe sitting there, out of the way…. Now the cussing can begin. One man shop, with barely enough room for my fat body…...and I am dancing around with this “thing” that is an inch taller than I am, and over ...
