Another simple little box? #1: A start up, and some finger joints

05-01-2016 03:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Again. Well, a trip to Lowes produced a couple of boards….3/8 by 5-1/2 wide. One was 2’ long, the other was 3’. Laid out the two planes that will go into the box. Needed a length and a width..But, before too much got done, decided to clear the deck, and clean it up a bit…. Seems it has been abused lately.. Anyway, once I got a length, I could grab a crosscut saw and saw to a line.. Just barely leaving the line.. Hey, the original “Cordless...

Conference Room Table #1: Table top help

04-29-2016 11:24 PM by RPG | 0 comments »

Hello lumber jock community. I’d love some advise and pics if possible on this. I’ve been asked to build a conference room table for a small company. I’m on a low budget but want to obviously make a quality top. I made the pedestals already but struggling with the top and budget. My thoughts are to either join oak 3/4” 6X8’s together or a sheet of oak ply and join butter board ends. I was going to pocket hole and glue everything together and case it with 1X3 o...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...

Just a simple little box... #4: Getting close to a finish line, now

04-23-2016 02:56 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

But, had quite a bit of work to do first.. Lid came out of the clamps..voids on the ends filled. Gaps filled and sanded. Had one filler piece pop out, back into the clamps it went. Got set up for the bottom rebate, used a Wards 78 to mill it. Had to milled a few grooves to add the cutter storage dividers. Needed two narrow dados. Thought I’d try the 45 to cut them…. Couldn’t get the skates close enough. Could only get one of the spurs to move. Square and...

End Table #4: Rails, supports, kickers

04-22-2016 03:11 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

Today I installed the rails by cutting 2 17inch beams of oak for the front page part of my chore. I also made kickers for the top entry where the chore goes in. I made holes and screwed them on each side. As you can see in the picture above. I also made 45 degree triangle supports for my top and legs. I cut holes for them and screwed them in on each side.

Just a simple little box... #3: Grooves, a top, and more grooves

04-22-2016 12:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, was able to sneak downstairs to the shop for a few minutes this morning….figured out how to make a skinny board get wide enough to make the top of this box. Lengthwise, was twice as long as I needed, no biggie. Mark a line at the mid point, square it (almost) across, and cut the line. Then, I need to know how wide the panel needed to be…..a few marks later, a rip cut, and I had two pieces ready to glue up. Spread a bit of glue, rub the joint back and forth a couple t...

Just a simple little box... #2: The other corners get their turn..

04-21-2016 03:53 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, had a heart monitor on for a few days ( taped the electrodes on, and they got ripped off…OW!) Did a short rust hunt. Couple of coping saws needed new blades…spent $2 on each saw. Already had the blades. Stopped at the Green Borg ( Menards) and got a few pieces of hardware. new brass hinges, a new “Olde Brass” Latch, and a few bags of brass screws…..NOT phillips headed ones, either. I got the ones with the slotted, oval heads. Anyway…..got b...

Just a simple little box... #1: start up.

04-20-2016 01:23 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Although the Stanley 45 is just about all cleaned and shiny, that box is just about a lost cause….way too many cracks, a repair used the wrong wood. Sooo, I went out and bought some 1/2” x 5-1/2” Poplar. about 5’ of it. Laid out a few crosscuts. two to make the sides of a new box, and two for the ends. An older Sears Craftsman ” Special saw” was taken down from the hook, a little wax of the teeth, cuts were done. I clamped up the two matching ...

Curved Front End Table #4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer

04-09-2016 10:29 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...

Just a basic sitting bench

04-05-2016 01:30 PM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

here is a link to my bench video: https://youtu.be/29BgWjv5n6A In this Video, I’m building a bench with my daughter’s assistance for our BBQ area. My influence was Izzy Swan’s video “Pay it forward bench.” Basic construction grade lumber was used with glue and pocket screws. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paf4H...Lizzy’s Video
