NOT your average screen door: Raised Panel work

10-14-2014 06:56 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, last episode, I was getting a center stile made. Well, after measuring three times, the dang thing still was short. Yanked it out of the door frame, used it to mark another board. THIS time, I held the new blank to it’s new home, and marked things out, and cut leaving the lines. I needed to cut a groove on both edges of the now center stile. Clamped it into the bench vise, and gave this old boy a work out First a little hammer work to center the cutter. Might have had ...

NOT your average screen door#2

10-09-2014 06:30 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, after much cussing and fighting, got all the rails fitted to their mortises. This being the last on this side of the door. Wound up making it an open ended affair. The lock rail took the longest, and I think I traced it’s ancestry back about ten generations… Ok, when I go to assemble the door for the final time, I will install a few wedges into each tenon, then pin the joint with a couple of dowel pins. Managed to measure for the center stile, and get the measu...

Furniture Making Tutorials #7: Attaching Face Frames

10-09-2014 12:23 AM by BigRedKnothead | 21 comments »

I’ve tried all sorts of methods fro attaching face frames to furniture and cabinetry. In this little blog I will list the various methods I know of, along with my 2 cents on each method. Most of these example show a plywood case, but the principle is the same when working with a solid case. Disclaimer- I realize pictures are helpful, and I don’t have picture for every method…...so many are borrowed from the interwebz. I’ll be sure to pass on some of my royalties to ...

NOT your average Screen Door?

10-08-2014 04:24 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Back door has a nasty looking, white, metal screen door. Seen way better days. Have been told by the BOSS to make a new screen door. Trip to Menards, picked out a few 1×4 x8’ Pine boards (3) a couple 1×6s and a couple 1×8s. Maybe $26+tax? Got things down into the Dungeon Shop to lay stuff out Hmm, might get a little bit crowded down here. Laid out the parts to locate a few joints And somehow managed to open the tool chests, to drag out a few tools ...

The Masters Slave #2: Plan & Design

10-06-2014 08:12 PM by Obed | 1 comment »

Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...

Glue-up Blocks for Panels

09-28-2014 01:49 PM by Ken90712 | 10 comments »

I recieved a email from Woodpeckers tool sale for some Glue-up Panel Blocks. I thought thats a cool idea and a quick way to keep boards flat while gluing them up. While the price seemed fair, I have a close friend thats has a machine shop and we always like hanging out and working together. He has alot of materaial stocked up over the years as well. So this is what we came up with. Size is 7” x 3” x 1 1/2” Aluminum. We machined them on the Brigeport...

Just for Fun... #86: The Work continues...

09-17-2014 12:32 AM by littlecope | 14 comments »

After a busy week of work and life, last weekend allowed me a few hours to devote to this latest “Mystery Project”...Though it only took 3 1/2- 4 hours, the sides were finally joined sometime Saturday morning… The last side is the most work, as it requires two corners to be filed to fit… These larger sides don’t help, they’re harder to handle, so the sides were clamped to the router table to facilitate the fiing… I might have saved mys...
