Time to do some glue ups. Took the clamps off of the dry fit. Plan was to start as small as I could, and work my way out from there. Last night, just two clamps, and some Elmers. Center divider got clamped into the front board. Let it sit overnight. Next morning, got a few items done. A router tabel set up to make pencil grooves, start and stop marks and locator marks for the round nosed coce bit. Had those same marks on the oak 2×2…..well they helped at first. One...

Bought a 1×6 x 8’ pine board the other day. It does get a bit crowded in the shop when them longer boards show up.. Was still a bit shaky after bringing the board down the steps to the shop. It was in the back of the van, long walk, and a few turns to get it down here. My sliding bevel gauge is elsewhere, of course, so I brought out the spare. Good tape measure is with the good bevel gauge, so the tape I have will have to do. Set a length of around 30” or so. ...
Well, at least it is now in a few clamps. Started off the day checking over the two side panels, now that they are out of the clamps….One was a bit wider at the bottom? Ok, scribed a line to match the other panel. Saw the extra stuff off. Rail was too long at the bottom. 1/4” down to 0” along one side. Dressed the saw marks with a plane. leveled the glue joints up. with a plane, and a sander with 60 grit pad. Got both looking spiffy, compared to last night...

If I have a RT with a porter cable 690 can I buy a variable speed control for it
I’m hoping to get a medicine cabinet built in very near future. I have the design in my head. Bought an old medicine cabinet with a really nice etched mirror & beveled glass. Then found another one, bigger.Anyway, I’m thinking I’ll build the door around the mirror size, & the cabinet to fit the door size. It will be built flush against wall above sink, with simple moulding that matches the woodwork throughout the house. I wish I knew Sketchup better. It’...
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...
I’m in the middle of this project, using walnut that I helped my dad cut some 30 years ago and has been in a barn drying ever since. I’m making this full size bed for my one twin daughter, as she asked me to do it. This is really my first major furniture project ever and has been quit the learning experience. I’ll post pix ASAP. All pieces are cut and sanded, now I’m going to fill the pores with orange shellac and sanding and then do a French polish finish on the m...
