Ok, last night, I snuck back to the shop…did a bit of chisel work. But wasn’t happy with the results.. And decided to “daylight” the mortise into a dado. I kept the waste piece, added some glue, and a clamp, and let it sit all night.. Then today, I removed the clamp, and worked on a few more dados. Nothing fancy to them, just a lot of chisel work.. laid out to match the tenon that will go here. Last night I had #4 and #3 done. This is for #2. Wide ch...
Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...
Ok, not much for a picture today,maybe later on. Need to move and remove a few things in the shop. Can’t do a whole lot over by the Lathe bench. Too much other junk in place. However.. I can empty out, and clean up Tool Chest #1, and have it taken upstairs as a Hope Chest. I can remove a couple power tools from one spot, place them where the plane til is. Then place the power tools where the til used to be. I may have enough room to move the brace til over beside the pla...
After the coffee table build I took some time to get a bit further along on the shop itself. Doing it a bit at a time is not really the recommended way of doing it, but it is what the budget allows. This is a long term project and I throw a little at a time into it. I never heard of a shop being truly “done” anyway. I didn’t think I had enough footage for a video, but it turns out I had more than enough, so there will be another update in the near future. View on You...
Ok, I worked a bit more on the lid, as it needed a strut installed to correct a bowed in side.. And worked to make the two halves LOOK like they belonged to each other. Planes, spokeshave, sanders. and gave things a coat of BLO to seal things up.. All that work dislodged the friction fitted strut, so I needed to glue it in a bit better.. And gave the underside of the lid a coat. Let that smelly BLO sit a day…. Decided to install the hinges, since things wer dry now...
View on YouTube Hi folks! So this past weekend I turned a bunch of free industrial pallets into a new workbench! I still have to add a vice and some shelving down below, but the main bench is finished!
Since this is supposed to open like a large book. Back page has been finished up. I placed a blank in the clamps this morning for the second page. Added the outsides on the bottom page.. Only need three pieces, this time. Page one did need some slots made, though.. Because there needed to be a way to lift a bit up out of the holder. Backsaw to define the slot. chisel to chop it out.. Then marked the side pieces for height, and saw them to size. Had to keep track of which se...
Not too sure I like how it is going. Played hooky today, tomorrow I find out about my version of Big Ben’s Knee. Got pretty worn out trying to get ONE holder done. Block was short in length by..~1/8-1/4”....have that fixed. These are the bits I am trying to build a holder for….and, These are the drills I thought I’d use to make the holder.. First hole wasn’t that great. I tried holding the block at a 45 degree angle in the vise. Bit followed th...
I was using a Kreg R3 pocket jig while building a shelf when the bit stopped drilling into the wood. Reyes it out on some pieces of scrap wood still nothing. Is it the bit? The Jig? Any help would be great.
Hey all, just wanted to share with you my NASA inspired toolbox! I’ve weathered it (separate post coming on that) and am really happy with how it turned out! View on YouTube
