From cut-offs to.... #3: top is done, tenons as well

06-15-2018 01:59 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still sore today, decided to try to get something done Like a few bevels?The other end grain bevel was done like the first one….also used a different #4.. A #4c model….Made in England.. Cuts a might deeper than the other Stanley #4 I have….Used the Millers Falls to get things close, then the final work done with the #4. Ok, ends are done, next was the long sides… This time, it was more of holding the plane at a”skew” and going along un...

Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

06-03-2018 05:34 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had the tenons on the aprons done… And ran the Stanley 45 along two edges, to form a bead. One side, then stand it up on edge, to complete the bead. Outside corner on each leg also got a bead detail…Laid out for the mortise..Gather up the tools to chop the hole.. test fit the tenon.. Until all parts could be dry fitted together. Top got “rounded” And set aside….after a glue up.. Found the flattest spot in the shop’s floor, and go...

Dutchy Excavator Build #3: Tracks complete.. moving on..

06-03-2018 09:25 AM by darkmyble | 8 comments »

Hi folks… well I eventually got the tracks finished. I’ve not been doing so well with my health so had to take a few days ‘rest’ urghhhh.. The one thing I like about this plan is it’s easy to follow and concise. More so than any others. Despite being a relative newcomer to the world of model building I’ve amassed hundreds of plans. I have to say these plans are far superior in every way. Right so finishing up the tracks was a fairly straightforward pr...

Simple Bedside Table #1: Started up

05-31-2018 07:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Wanted something to do, while I was waiting on parts for that bedframe project…While picking up lumber for the bed, I also picked a 1×10 x 4’, and a couple 1×4 x 4’ boards….just Pine, cheap ones from Menard’s….had to dig through and find the best in the bin…. Which left the problem of legs for the table….table didn’t NEED to be all that tall…..had a chunk of 2×10, about 29” long…..nasty mess in the cente...

Had to go out and buy a pair of folding saw horses…and do a paint job.. More of...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #7: Friday's Follies

05-26-2018 04:03 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was a mean, old, LONG day….Yard sale had these two clamps.. $4..one pad was missing, oh well. Fabric was bought… Hey, the Boss picked it out…2 yards worth….and a can of “finish” We’ll see. Plywood panel needed a rebate around the edges.. Wards 78 was able, despite my sore left thumb, to peel off one layer…1/2” or so wide. This way, the panel AND the fabric will fit in the grooves…Stapler…was a POS..three tries ...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #6: Headboard work, test fits

05-24-2018 09:00 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took the footboard upstairs to the bedroom, to see IF it fits….the way things were going, I wanted to make sure.. Looks like it will fit…went back to the shop, and took the headboard apart….rails needed a bead.. They needed sanded and I even ran a roundover bit down the edges… Tenons on the ends,needed fine tuned.. Mainly the endgrain…was a bit out of square…chin powered the chisel, not a hammer.. Rails were done, sanded to 180 grit, and set...

Decided to at least do the footboard ones…and work out any “kinks” First off, wanted a bead detail….Stanley 45 was still set up from doing those grooves, changed out the cutters to use a bead cutter about the same width….yep, it was quite sharp…never felt a thing, but there was fresh DNA appearing on the pine. Plan was to do just the o...
