Mission Style Bed #3: Head and Footboard Assembly

04-11-2012 11:50 PM by Fraser Gandy | 2 comments »

Alright, did a lot of work the past while, even though it seems like I haven’t. I’ve been busy working!I started with the footboard, I first lined all the slats up in between the rails. This was probably one of the most frustrating parts of this whole project. Once I got them all pretty well in there, I attached the rails to the legs and that sorted out the slats for the most part. Once I did that, I noticed that my mortises and slats and stuff didn’t quite look as nice a...

Shooting Boards #1: 45 Degree Bevel Shooting Board

11-08-2009 04:41 PM by IkeandBerry | 2 comments »

I am working on a project for my wife and found that I have to mitre the ends of the box for the project. I can cut these on my RAS or my table saw but they will not be exactly right, so I went off on an adventure to find plans for a shooting board that will allow me to shoot a 45 degree bevel across a 13 board edge. Needless to say I did not find any large format shooting board plans that would work for what I need to do. Some of the boards that I am working with are just over five feet l...

Compound dovetail joints

12-05-2012 01:27 AM by DouginVa | 2 comments »

Can anybody recommend a good site with instruction on cutting compound miter joints. I found a rather corny video on YouTube that wasn’t all that helpful. I’m looking for some good detailed instruction.

tote for tools #1: tote for tools, part two....

11-05-2015 04:03 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, back is giving me fits tonight. I tried to get at least one corner test fitted. Soooo, here we go.. had the lines all marked out, but needed a decent saw to cut the pins for the dovetails…..had a panel saw, 10 ppi, seemed to be sharp. tried it out, just splitting some lines.. Saw isn’t all that big, maybe 20” or less. Came from a hardware company up in Cleveland,OH. Seemed to do a decent enough job.. Well, after all the lines were sawn….I clam...

tote for tools #3: Last two sets of dovetails...

11-08-2015 09:51 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, the lower back settled down for a while…..set with a HOT heating pad on it for a day and a half. Could finally walk more than 10’ without going OUCH! Got bored sitting around, didn’t have anything to “baste” the back with while it was baking.. meandered SLOWLY down the steps to the Dungeon Shop…..stairs and my back are NOT are speaking terms to each other. Had the correct tools back from the Loft Bed Project in one hand, and a pine 1×6 in ...

tote for tools #6: Clamps came off, but the cussing remains

11-11-2015 05:59 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well. After letting the glue cure for a couple hours, went down to remove the clamps. Another fight broke out, as the longer clamps wanted to fall onto the floor, taking everything they could with them…..didn’t work. Clamped the case upside down to the bench, was going to level some edges.. Nice, thin shaving…..but, I wasn’t in the mood for things this slow. Got out the cambered Jack planes. Got the bottom almost leveled out, I figured I could install the b...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...

Picture Frames #2: progress

09-22-2010 09:02 PM by Camper | 2 comments »

I had a little more time to work on the picture frames. Now cut to final dimensions and mitered. The pictures are below. I think the miters turned out pretty decent (better than I expected for a first timer). I used a miter cutting jig by Niki which is fairly easy to make. I had my suspicions that the jig was not built well but proved myself wrong. The frame clamping strap from woodcraft for $1.75 works great!! :) I also applied some danish oil on half of a scrap piece and there is a...

Balanced Work Bench #1: Building a Semi-Classic workbench without taking a 2nd out on your house

07-16-2013 05:32 PM by Jeremiah | 2 comments »

Here goes…. Traditional work benches (roubo for example) are out dated. I know, heresy. But it’s true The reason they made those crazy over sized legs and joints was because they didnt have sheetgoods back then and they needed to over build them to deal with the lateral and horizontal force they experienced. It is my opinion that pine 2×6’s and 3/4 ply MORE than cover any of the structural needs of a work bench. So the next big argument FOR traditional w...

My experience with Hal Taylor at "Rocking Chair U"

04-11-2011 01:23 AM by Gator | 2 comments »

From the first time I saw a sculpted rocking chair, I loved the look, but never dreamed I would have the skill or patients to build one. The more I looked at the different chairs, the more I realized that there are a lot of rocking chair builders out there. The most frequent names that kept coming up were Sam Maloof, Hal Taylor, and Scott Morrison. The more I looked at the different designs, the more I was drawn to Hal Taylor’s chairs. Paul & Joel from Canadian...
