A computer desk #12: Lid installed, PIP

01-21-2019 04:04 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

2 hour shop time last night, 4pm to 6pm….parts for the lid were taken out of the clamps, sanded clean, and squared up. Bread board ends needed trim a bit. Found a strip of scrap that I could use to set the “meeting angles” of the lid Short section is for the top shelf. Once the angles looked decent, I could use these to set the bevel on the tablesaw The long section needed a bit of clean up, bandsaw did a wavy cut….once that was where it matched the top shel...

Shop stuff #146: The bathroom reno...Building the vanity part 2

01-21-2019 01:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

A longer format, which I prefer doing. This one completes the vanity to a functional state. Not yet completed, but with colder weather closing in there will be less time in the shop. I am passing along some information that I have gleaned over time too. View on YouTube

Among other things…4 hours of shop time…..wasn’t that great of a day..meh..Began by tracing around the desk, once it was as centered as I could get it….then drill a few pilot holes… Was hoping I would miss a few things underneath…nope…corner blocks were in the way. Placed the desk back on the base…kept trying to clamp things in place….finally found a 3×3 block, and clamped things down.. Fun part was lifting this thing up, on...

Two trips to the shop….with naps inbetween…fighting a chest cold…among other things… Frame came out of the clamps...Sanded smooth and flat. Missed those slotted holes….went with a few counter bored holes…three in the front and back rails, and one in each end rail….1-1/8” screws, again. Milled a block of tapered Ash plugs, glued those in place, then trimmed them flush.. There IS a plug sitting there….honest.. I was going to fil...

Drill the counter-bores first, switch drills, and drill the pilot holes..dab of glue. Rotate, and do the other ends…base can now be set aside… Viewed from the “front&...

Vise rehab #2: The other jaw done

12-28-2018 05:32 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Finally got a day to finish the vise rehab…had to tear out the old. First, the moving part was removed… And set aside…which left this.. Layer of Pine. I had chopped out a place for the vise to sit behind….screws holding it in place were all buggered up..Chisel to split off the “veneer”, and a pair of Visegrips to remove the screws…right into a trashcan. Was able to remove the two lags from under the vise…and set them aside…with ...

Vise rehab #1: Start up

12-28-2018 04:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, back in 2015, I picked a vise up at a Tractor Fest…..And got it installed on the end of my bench..where I do most of my work…. And was informed this couldn’t be an end vise…hasn’t a place for a dog to go…so.. A chunk was added to the moving jaw…and a few dog holes drilled. Well, after 3 years of use, and abuse… The pine was getting a beat beat up….end cap of the bench was looking beat up….I had a couple chunks of Ash&#...

Grandson's Coffee Table #6: Worked on the top

12-14-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Drawer works….time to work on the top.. Edges needed jointed….but…there was something else needing worked on.. If it is this bad on one face, imagine what the other face is like….calls for a different kind of jack plane.. So, what is so special about this old Corsair C-5? Set up as a “Scrub-Jack” has a huge mouth, and an 8” radius to the iron…First, I needed to “cut some corners” 2” radius curves….and, si...

Grandson's Coffee Table #5: Drawer done

12-14-2018 01:18 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Going to be a short episode….rest of today’s misadventures will be in another blog…Jigged things up…Stanley 45 set up for 1/4” x 1/4” grooves.. Got the sides and the front grooved. Wide fingers on the front will hide the grooves in the sides… Took three tries to get this cut correctly 1) long enough, not square, nor wide enough, 2) long enough, square, too wide…3) long enough after trimmed, square, just wide enough..Where the back meet...

Grandson's Coffee Table #4: A start on the drawer

12-12-2018 06:06 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Had to haul the last 1×6 x 6’ plank to the shop…5 hours later, swept the shop, called it a day. Dust collector? I let the dust settle out onto the floor, sweep it up into my DUST PAN, and dump that “dust collector” into the shop’s trash can….and, when THAT get full, I empty that into the firepit, light a match…maybe roast some hotdogs.. Anyway…removed the clamps from the glue up….no creaks, no cracking sounds….must have...
