Maple Chest of Drawers #15: Last drawer, and a PIP

08-24-2017 07:48 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok….needed to get the last drawer DONE.. Wasn’t happy with the sides I had stash back for this drawer. Cut two sides from the maple plank the front and back came from. Atkins crosscutsaw’s turn, as I try to rotate the saws through a job. Jointer planes to get things all the same width. Drawer front and both sides need ripped to width. Marked a few lines around, got out the usual suspects, as I had ran a saw on the ends.. As usual, pins get done first, then t...

Maple Chest of Drawers #13: More drawer, and other follies...

08-21-2017 01:19 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Again, more of a catching up…. Decided to try to add the plywood back to the case…..on a Monday? Usual stuff went on… I was just going to get a measurement on what size of a panel I needed to cut out of the 4’ x 4’ panel….was.. One thing led to another,,,,,had to lay the panel ON the dinning room table to mark out two lines needing cut….wound up outside on the patio, using a roll-around cooler as a bench, to saw the panel out….grrrrr ...

Always seem to be a fight during the first drawer build…..if it has been a while between builds… Ok, more of a catch up on how things are going….both on the thumb, and the project X-rays this morning show thumb has healed….been in the splint a bit too long….NOW I get to loosen it up to where it will bend like new, again….to do that, it was back to the shop today.. Ok, Drawers: Laid out a few drawer fronts… These were the “easy ones...

Shop stuff #101: Monster Computer Base Pt 2

08-16-2017 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, with a new sheet of (not Chinese) plywood, I get serious about getting this thing together. Nothing like taking a simple box and making it complicated. Everything fit well and square and the glue up was relatively uneventful. Next time, we start the finish. View on YouTube

Maple Chest of Drawers #11: Top is done..

08-10-2017 02:34 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With a surprise ending, too….Got bored, decided to try the plank for the top…4/4×13-1/8” x 49” long…..heavier than it looked, awkward going down the steps to the shop…. After cutting off a chunk to get to a length for the case…..I thought I could not only flatten the slab out a bit, but get it close to 3/4” thick…...wasn’t happening on the thickness part, but I at least got it almost flat.. Width-wise, was too narrow. Wal...

Maple Chest of Drawers #10: Face frame follies

08-08-2017 06:12 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Sunday was a Road Trip….thought I would try Monday to do a little work in the shop.. Got three parts for face frame rails dovetailed. Needed to run the jointer over them to get them all to match each other…Fighting clamps while doing this, is not fun… Thought I’d get a bit fancy with the wider top rail…. But, when I went the chop out the matching pins….they merely broke off….Grrrr Tried the sockets for the main rails.. Which meant lif...

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...

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...
