Another one of “them” days in the shop. Clamps getting flying lessons, because they just kept falling to the floor when I tried to use them. Got the lid angle done ( almost) with an old handplane I had refurbbed up A Stanley No.28. Seemed to be a little lighter than my Stanley #6c…..Left index finger served as a “fence” to keep things going. Tried to match things up with the non-moving part of the lid….even tried hinges, to se what was going on&...
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...
Well, last time, I had the four sides about together. Clamped them up into a box like shape As I needed some more layout work done. Had a 2’ x2’ sheet of 1/4” Oak plywood to try to cut into a bottom And, in theory, I could just measure the two directions and mark things out…..in theory yes, in this shop….Nope. Measured three times, laid out the lines, cut leaving the lines….1” off on the front to back measure? Ok, We’ll deal with th...
Hello Everyone,We finally started to build our much needed hanging tool cabinet. This one is going to be big. It measures in at 4 ft. x 4 ft. and around 20” deep. This build should be a lot of fun. Here is a link to part 1 of the video series. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5xU57c6BDw
Ok, maybe today will go a bit better than the last one? Had an Auction to go to Saturday, and refurbbed a couple items I picked up at it. Bench is cleared off, time to do a few dovetails? When last seen, i had these sawn. I picked up a candle the other day, waxed the saw blade, and made a couple more cuts. Then the chisels took over. That chisel came from the set I picked up at Aldis. It is about 5/16-3/8” wide. I’m banging through curly Maple with this chisel....
My latest tools are these tiny trim planes. Again thanks Mads Felding for the inspiration.They are made from Jarrah and a really lovely figured piece of Banksia; all wood came from the scrap bin. I made two to use up all the timber.The blade is cut from an old 2nd hand Stanley plane using a Dremel. I still have to make another blade, insert the brass pin and design a wedge.I will post pics of the finished articles as soon as I have them finished.
