African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #7: Assembling base

01-14-2018 04:32 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Due to the 8/4 material I used for the legs, the 4/4 aprons needed to be rebated to maintain their proportion to the legs and the integrity of the leg mortises. Machining the rebates in the long aprons was part of the reason I built the miter gauge extension, the other being the notches for the cross lap between the aprons. I completed the machining after work yesterday and fit the parts together; the fitting was minor a few swipes of a chisel and light sanding and I had a good tight fit. ...

A Stepback Cupboard build #7: Door is done....

01-11-2018 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, I did get a panel glued up this week.. And let it sit a day…..today, it came out of the clamps. Marked for final width, and a rip cut made on the bandsaw. Then face planed to remove some high spots.. Along with jointing the sawn edge. Width was now set, length was about as close as I could get it. Marked a line along one end, to do a bevel across the grain….. Panel raising. This panel is a bit on the thick side. (more on that in a bit) Paul Selle...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #5: Fitting and installing breadboard end

01-07-2018 01:44 PM by Reinan | 1 comment »

Made some progress last night on the top, I got one of the breadboard ends installed. Having done this once before, things seemed better and went more smoothly than the previous time. This end took me about 2 hours to fit and install. After cleaning up the tongue and drilling the holes: I used a small fine cut square file to remove the nubs left over after drilling the 2 holes for each elongated slot. Turns out I didn’t offset one hole as much as I should have and it didn’t suck the ...

A Stepback Cupboard build #5: A drawer building day

01-07-2018 12:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I got the clamps off, and things laid out… Drawer front fits…I removed the rest of the clamps, and moved the case so I could have a bit more elbow room… Hauled the Pine 1×6 to the shop. Set up to cut a pair of drawer sides. A Disston D-7, 10ppi crosscut. That green can was also needed, today One end was a tad off, used the mitre box to trim it down to match the first one. You would think, that both parts coming from the same board, would be the s...

Shop Notes #2: Beetle Kill Pine

01-06-2018 06:25 PM by Steve | 1 comment »

I finished up my year-end inventory yesterday after counting almost 180 different sticks of wood, from full-sized logs to tiny sticks of exotic scraps I can’t bear to burn. Counting meant cleaning and organizing, so I took advantage of the suddenly clutter-free benchtop and built up some cabinet doors for my new lathe stand. Out here in the Western U.S. there’s been an ongoing infestation of bark beetles in our softwood forests. I’ve seen areas where the dead trees we...

A Stepback Cupboard build #4: Face frame installed, and other mishaps

01-06-2018 02:13 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, tried to fit the face frame to the front of the case…..wasn’t going to fit….Frame was a hair narrower than the case, and threw the alignment stuff off. Decided to expand the grooves outward a hair, both of them. had to reset the cutter on the Stanley #45,....took out the #12 cutter, and replaced it with the #13… That was all I was going to do..last night…one thing lead to another…tried different ways to hold the frame still, long enough to use th...

A Stepback Cupboard build #3: A face frame gets built

01-04-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok. I need to build a “face frame” to cover the front edges of the case..ripped down another plank of Ash Bandsaw to rip a couple stiles, about 1-1/2” wide. Jointer plane to remove saw marks, and make the two match each other. Needed three rails.. Mitersaw to cut those to length….ganged all three up.. Shorter boards = shorter planes. Then I needed tenons on both ends of these three.. Didn’t like these wide tenons, so they were trimmed down a...

A Stepback Cupboard build #2: Shelves and webframes

01-04-2018 10:25 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, grooves were milled, needed some shelves made.. Used this vintage Skil saw 6” to cut down a small panel of 3/4” plywood. Router was reset. Needed this fence, set about half way into the bit. I clamped each shelf blank on end, and added a backer board. Plywood was the normal “Borg” stuff…and bowed a bit.. No problem, clamps to take the curves out, long enough for the router to work….also gave a wider area for it to ride on. The place the...

A Stepback Cupboard build #1: A start up..

01-04-2018 09:47 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, been quite busy lately, Holidays, and such. Spent a bit of cash to get about 32bf of Ash, from a friend of mine.. Hauled a few of the 4/4×6” planks to the shop….needed to cut a couple to length, joint the edges, and make a couple panels Hmmm, thought these were flat sawn..until I found the end grain. Quarter sawn Ash.. Used this old saw, to cut a few blanks to length.. Jointed the edges, and checked for any gaps.. Got one side into the clamps̷...
