Japanese Tool Box #5: Handles

04-11-2015 04:09 AM by ruddhess | 5 comments »

New saw cuts SO very smooth – glue-up quality! I’m very pleased! Gluing the second “handle” to the end. Handles are clamped and waiting for glue to dry. Bottom still has screws in place and will come out tomorrow some time when the glue has dried more. Starting to look really nice! I love this design – traditional Japanese carpenter tool box. Uh oh! I am such a nongerhead! The handle on one end was sticking up just a tad so I went to shave it down a b...

Japanese Tool Box #4: Glue-Up Bottom

04-09-2015 04:23 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

I actually resorted to using my new HF power planer to get the edges of these two boards flat and smooth enough to glue up. But I am most interested in making and constructing right now. I actually love all those dark knots against the lighter colored white pine boards! I did find a relatively good crosscut saw at local GW this evening. Only 8$ (within my price range!) A juxtaposition of saws: I got this saw today while on lunch. I used it tonight to trim the edges of the bottom...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #21: Finishing Up Saw Bench/Saw Horse No. 2

03-23-2015 02:39 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Making up a bunch of oak dowel pegs. I use my old Delta belt/disc sander to clean-up the splinters and chamfer the ends of the dowels. Those oak splinters are a big pain! Oak dowels come in all colors! I keep the sets together and use them on the same joints as much as possible. Second upright on Saw Bench/Saw Horse No. 2 was out of square by 1/4” (diagonal measurements) – after removing the 48” pipe clamps, this is the resulting diagonal measurements: I c...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #18: Gluing Up The Feet

03-17-2015 04:36 AM by ruddhess | 3 comments »

Here is a shot of the upright posts in their “sandwich” mortises. Left side: C-clamps do the job. Right side: Pittsburgh bar clamps and one C-clamp. Almost complete. Front and back upright assemblies are skewed by about 3/16”. It’s beautiful wood though! And the top rails are dead even in height.

Bailey No.4 revival

03-01-2014 12:06 AM by harum | 1 comment »

Finished cleaning and sharpening Stanley hand plane, Type 19, 1948-61, bought a couple of weeks ago. Here are before pictures: With helpful suggestions from LJ-ers, removed the rust and tuned whatever I could and sharpened the original blade. I have tried it in a real project: flattening and squaring a rather sloppy glue-up for a cutting board. A sugar maple glue-up. Looks like this is the best plane I have put my hands on (except, maybe, for that one in “Woodcraft”...

Walnut kitchen countertop #5: glue-ups trimmed

02-05-2014 04:02 AM by harum | 0 comments »

The glue-ups were trimmed a bit to fit the space above the base cabinets. The walls around the cabs don’t meet at right angles though, so the right glue-up had to be cut accordingly. What is left before finishing is sanding with an ROS, grits 100 through 400. I also want to treat the edge with either a 1/8” round over, or a 1/8” bevel bits. Have to try on a scrap piece first to see which works better. Have yet to find one joint connector to bridge the left and r...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #3: Case Construction and Glue-Up

05-02-2013 12:18 PM by DustyMark | 4 comments »

Design Considerations Watch this video to explore design considerations. Solid wood case construction must take into account wood movement. Wood expands and contracts across the grain and does not along the length of the grain. When wood is glued across grain over a long span, it will split when it contracts. NOTE: The drawer frames and the back are all pre-assembled. The back is a mortise and tenon frame which contains six floating solid-wood panels. Clamping rehearsal withou...

How-To Make Log Furniture #5: Waterfall Side Table

02-18-2013 06:23 PM by ScottShaeffer | 3 comments »

I had a butcher block glue up that I decided to not use for what I made it for (bar stool seats) so instead, I conceived an artistic idea for some side tables. Let me show you how I made them!

Video Quick Tip

02-13-2013 07:32 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 22 comments »

I ran into a situation where my clamping needs exceeded my clamp capacities. I did a quick video to share my solution because it might help someone else in their shop. This video is “quick & dirty” because I wanted to try recording it on my iPhone. I don’t see myself doing that again, but the information is still good and clear. I hope you find it helpful.

A Guitar for Daniel #2: Physical manifestations of thinking things through

12-12-2012 06:03 PM by Dan Lyke | 0 comments »

This project has a huge mix of frustration and reward because I’m trying to be a facilitator and enable Daniel to build the guitar. It’s way too ambitious a project to simply be a teacher for, to walk him through the steps of every tool set-up and every element of design (especially when I’m learning much of this myself), and yet it’s not my guitar. So I try to encourage him to set up and do a design or a cut by himself, and then take a deep breath and accept the outco...
