Shop storage projects #23: Chisel dresser: final details done

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Just about wrapped this project up. Had to set it up on the bench.. Had to measure for a kicker for the bottom drawer… Glue and a couple screws to hold it in place. Measured for a plywood back… Again, glue and screws. Started applying cleats to hold the top in place… Then added the top… No glue, just enough screws to hold things still, is all. Couple at each end. added this cleat ( on the wrong side, at that) to hold the shelf support in ...

DIY tablesaw + dust extraction

02-12-2017 06:25 PM by FranksShed | 1 comment »

Hey everybody! My name is frank and I am a hobby craftsman from germany. I already talked about the build of my DIY table saw in my blog. In my youtube channel you can find the video for this build. If you are interested, just click here!But as I completed my table saw, I soon realized that I have to work on the dust extraction. After a lot of setbacks I figured out a very effective solution. The main problem was still being able to reach the saw (for the settings). So I made four removabl...

Honey locust bench. #1: The start of my outdoor bench.

02-08-2017 04:51 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...

Shop storage projects #18: Another drawer, and lessons learned..

01-29-2017 11:39 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, the first drawer needed a pair of handles installed.. Nothing fancy, just something I happened to have five pairs of. Noticed when I removed the drawer from the case, had a couple spots that needed more work, as the drawer was sticking, right at the back.. Plane is just a #4 sized smoother. Had a couple knots that wanted to bow the side out a bit, planed the spots down, and installed the drawer… Not too bad, now. lessons learned? Well, making things the correct si...

Shop storage projects #17: A drawer is made

01-29-2017 04:53 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

One down, four to go…Since I was in the area, I stopped at a Home Depot for a few boards…..At the prices they wanted, it will be just a few boards. I think I have enough to at least build three of the five drawers. So, did a bit of measuring, and a bit of crosscutting after I got home.. Wasn’t in the mood to use a handsaw, so this old, Vintage saw will have to do….went back upstairs for a while… Decided to at least test out a different “dovetail ...

Shop storage projects #16: Top is done....

01-27-2017 12:17 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

So, I am getting close to drawer building time? Ok, decided a 2 hour tour today would be about all this old body could handle….Started to build the frame for the top….had a few things to “finesse” first. One end of the long rail was a bit too thick…..marked out where to remove the excess wood….bandsaw to remove the worst and a plane to smooth things out. The mitre cuts were a bit off, re-did those, and made sure the rails matched each other. I f...

Shop stuff #73: Sally's Coffee Table Part 10

01-26-2017 05:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I finally get to the end of the wood work and start finishing in this one. It is hard to believe there was so much to it. It was a long and challenging build and despite being very ruthless in cutting things out, there is still a ton of video. View on YouTube

Shop storage projects #15: A back for the case, and...

01-26-2017 04:09 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And a frame for the top gets a start. Well, the other night, I snuck back down to the shop, meaning merely take the clamps off, and put the clamps away…...wound up doing a bit more. Once the clamps were off, I flipped the case onto it’s front. I used one pipe clamp to hold it onto the top of the bench. Didn’t want it to fall off onto the floor… Slapped the sheet of plywood in place, and marked out where to try the cuts at. Cordless circular saw was just...
