A Box of Fancy Pine #3: Moldings from scratch?

05-08-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

OK….Moldings. Still had some of that fancy grained pine…and I wanted to add a molded bottom edge to the box… Drew a “pattern” of sorts….to lay out where each cut will go. Decided to use the Stanley 45 for the first two cuts.. Step 1 was a bead. This board was to make a pattern, for the actual molding…so I could reset the planes.. Step 2 was this “cove” cut. I had ground a profile on an old cutter, to make a trough for auge...

My first post and my first recent project....

03-04-2009 07:27 AM by Matthew Archibald | 3 comments »

So right now I am just doing a little easy 6×6x6 box for my girlfriend. I’m using poplar and I am going to paint it and maybe felt the inside of it. She’s in college and recently joined a sorority and i thought I would cobble together a little box and paint with Tri-Sigma Greek lettering, colors and symbol. In this case I’ve chosen the sail boat over the skull and cross bones. More to come….

Workbench Build #19: Clean up and Reset.. Laminating the top Part 1

03-05-2013 05:23 PM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Not much “Progress” over the last couple days unless you consider a good cleaning of the shop progress (which I kinda do). The place had become a safety hazard and I just wasn’t able to focus on anything with all the clutter and dust about so it had to be delt with before moving forward with anything else. I started out like this.. And after a full day of cleaning and re organizing some tools I got it to a working condition.. As a side note.. the wi...

legacy veneer / glue press

02-09-2015 01:28 PM by gohei82 | 3 comments »

After my grandmother passed away this fall her children decided to sell her property, including my grandfathers old workshop. He and his brother built boats and furniture there, and although most of the tools are gone, there was an old massive glue press up on the attic. I guess the sheer size have scared anyone from taking it. It was six wooden frames of 4×4 timber, with 4 screws in each frame. Luckily I discovered that the frames was not attached to each other, as I always assumed (as ...

GrandBRATS screaming, and a-fightin….too much noise upstairs, time to retreat to the Dungeon Shop, and LOCK the door behind me…. Weeeelll now. Decided to build that drawer. Cut the sides to size. Then set up the router table to cut some grooves. Had to clear all the junk off of it first. Set a 1/4” straight bit. Set up the fence with a pair of clamps holding it in place. Tried a piece of scrap, first, just in case… Ok, that is set up and waiting…a...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #7: The box joint drawers

09-12-2010 12:37 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Continuing my progress I decided that the box joint, per the plan, was the way to go. Instead of 5 drawers I did four. I had all 5 cut, but figured one extra big drawer would be more useful than 3 smaller, so I used the biscuit joiner to combine one of the two big ones with one of the small. It saved me from buying more wood and gave me more practice with the joiner. I checked around for plans for a box joint jig and decided that the one from Shopnotes.com (PlansNow) was the better of the ...
