That OddLots Ad #21: Panels are done, glue up made, next?

09-27-2018 03:41 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

There are two things that making a raised panel with hand planes produces…...lots of sweat, and.. This is about average for one panel….heart monitor was having trouble staying stuck to me. Managed to get the last of the panels made, and fitted….then spread some glue around.. While this in not going to be a new workbench….I can get some use out of it. Frees up space on the bench.. Hmmm…in theory? Rather than do 1/2 blind dovetails on the drawer f...

• Eighteenth-Century Frame Saw #4: Side Rails and a Test Drive

04-15-2018 11:28 PM by Ron Aylor | 14 comments »

Side Rails and a Test Drive –  After reorienting the horse and the cart, I used my tenoning clamp & chairmarker's tenon saw ...   … to create a tenon at one end of each of the two 3/4” x 1” cherry side rails.   I then cut 3/8” x 3/4” x 1-3/8” through mortises in the handles …  ... to accept the side rails.                 After a quick check for squareness …  I assembled one end of the saw and attached the blade …  … It was then that I was able to determine the len...

• Eighteenth-Century Frame Saw #3: Cart Before the Horse

04-14-2018 08:09 PM by Ron Aylor | 18 comments »

Cart Before the Horse –  I know I said I was going to attach the side rails next, but as I was ripping these parts …  … it dawned on me that I didn’t know how long they needed to be. I wouldn’t know the length until the blade attachment pieces were in place. So, once I laid out their shape on a cherry board, I drilled holes for the blade pins …                 … cut mortises for the handles to pass through …  … making sure everything stayed square …  … and tight.            ...

• Eighteenth-Century Frame Saw #2: Handles

04-13-2018 06:59 PM by Ron Aylor | 10 comments »

Handles - Having cut out the first handle with a coping saw, I used files and rasps to further define the shape.                 I then transferred the shape to another cherry board and started all over again.  I think these two handles are pretty close …  ... especially when viewed at three feet apart … LOL!  Overall this saw will be approximately 40” long and 20” wide. Next I need to cut the 3/4” x 1” side rails, and joint them, via through mortise and tenon, to the handles before tac...

• Eighteenth-Century Frame Saw #1: The Want

04-13-2018 03:01 PM by Ron Aylor | 15 comments »

The Want - For years I have been resawing stock with a rip cut handsaw … both hardwoods …  … and softwoods.  Although this has proven successful, I have always wanted to add a frame saw to my arsenal, for this purpose. I have hesitated, up to now, for the sole reason of blade attachment. I have seen many different methods using tubular steel with inset bolts for blade tension, but I do not have the capacity to work with metal.  I recently obtained a copy of TOOLS: Working Wood in Eight...

frame saws #1: sawing logs with a frame saw

01-28-2018 09:34 PM by Lazy_K | 0 comments »

There has been a surge in the popularity of frame saws in woodworking recently, especially in saws intended for resawing planks and slabs. a Few years ago I made a frame saw from the Gramercy tools 12” bow saw kit. it came out really well, and inspired me to make one that holds a coping saw blade. My first home made frame saw was back in the early 1980’s and I have added one bought and one more handmade in the interim. but I think I am going to want a saw to rip...

Frame Saw #1: Building a frame saw

11-08-2017 12:39 AM by Schade | 4 comments »

Now that i have a proper Work Bench I decided to build a frame saw so I have something to use to build future projects, such as a tool chest.I watched several videos online and also bought a video about making frame saws by Isaac from Blackburn tools.I liked the looks of Isaac’s but I didn’t like the way the blade mounted. So I decided to mount the blade in the handles like Paul Sellers did in his design. I used a bunch of scrap wood from other projects I’ve done over...
