My Garage/Work Shop Makeover #2: Cabinets for the Alcove

301 days ago by MT_Stringer | 4 comments »

Finally, I am making some progress. The first two cabinets are being made from A/B Sanded pine plywood. Since I am painting them, they should look OK when I get through. I forgot to mention in the first entry that I am using pocket hole construction to build the cabinets. No glue is used except where I attach the French cleat to the back of the cabinet. I glued and screwed it. I used this series of Kreg videos as my inspiration and I sorta followed the guys path of construction. I have ...

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

348 days ago by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

Roubo #8: It's Done!

367 days ago by bondogaposis | 13 comments »

This is the grand finale. Here I’m doing the final leveling of the top. It was a ton of hand planing and sanding. It’s not perfect but not too bad either. I only sanded to 100 grit, I don’t want a slick surface. Now onto applying finish. I used a simple mixture of 1/3 MS, 1/3 BLO and 1/3 spar varnish. Next up is to apply suede to the vise chop and wagon vise and dogs. I used contact cement. That was the last step and here is the final product. ...

Roubo #7: Details, Details

370 days ago by bondogaposis | 6 comments »

Time to get back to the Roubo build. I took a vacation to Mexico for 10 days and so my progress took a nose dive. I’m back at it now though. First thing I needed was to make a board jack. I wanted it to be 1 1/4” thick, I only have 8/4 stock that is 1 7/8” thick. So in order to rip it down I had rip both sides on the table saw and finish it off w/ a handsaw. If you want to know if your handsaw is dull try ripping through three inches of 1/4 sawn white oak. The rest ...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #9: Making an Attached Top Box

401 days ago by Boxguy | 12 comments »

I make two kinds of box tops. Boxes with inset tops (above) where the the top floats in a dadoed groove that runs around the sides, and attached tops where the top is glued directly onto the sides of the box. This tutorial will feature the attached top method, and a press design to help with this process. Of course you can use clamps to hold the top on until the glue sets. But I prefer this press. The press features 8 all-thread sections with a compression spring an...

Roubo #6: Assembly

405 days ago by bondogaposis | 9 comments »

I was able to get the assembly done today. It was big day. I can see the tunnel at the end of the light! I have been working on the leg vise chop and all of the mortises and holes that have to be cut into the leg as well. This was much easier to do prior to assembling the bench. Here is the finished chop and parallel glide.On to the rest of the bench. I cut the pins for drawboring first and set them on the heater. I was thinking that this would make them a bit more pliable. Buy the ti...
