Went out and bought some brass hinges, well, at least they were brass PLATED. Picked up a latch as well.. A 3/4” x 3/4” aluminnum angle about 2’ long wound up in the cart as well.. measured for length, bandsaw to cut, had to metal blanks. Clamped them together. Chucked a bit bit in the drill press. Drilled a few holes along one side of the angles. Used the bandsaw to convert the holes into slots. Dug up some mesh drawer liner. Cut it to width, plus a bit ...
This story starts on a Saturday morning when I got a Facebook message from my friend Rob. “We are having a yard sale and there are a ton of old tools” Rob said. So ofcourse I got in my car and headed over there. I found a lot of great old tools but this week we will focus on the Level I found, It’s a Stanley No. 104 Level 18” long. This will make a great restoration project I thought… I made a video of the restoration as well, you can see it here: View on Yo...
Ok, started off checking the layouts.. All four sides together and square? Check! Motivator in place? Check. trimmed the bottom panel. Trimmed two pieces of JEFF’S Maple, jointed the edges, and clamped them up in the now empty clamps. Then stowed them out of the way for awhile… Ok, back to the Oak stuff. Got the bottom panel all nice and square. Clamped it down to the bench, time to cut a rebate or four… Numbah Wun! took a bit to set it just right. ...
Well, the brace till is done, now I need a place to stash all the bits in…. There are a few more upstairs, in hiding I think. Had some thin Oak scraps. Chose four of them to makes a few sides to a box. Threw some tools out on the bench, to cut some through dovetails with. had an old, single fluted dovetail router bit. Used than as a pattern. The big red clamp to hold the pieces still while I chop away. Saw work was by a Disston No.5 backsaw, and the bandsaw from Te...
just a quick little blog here… Had some leftovers from a couple projects. Had a notched “keeper from a project that got side-lined somewhere down the line….Maybe spend a little time today. Had some 1×4 Oak blanks….well one was, the other was a might bigger. Used the bandsaw to cut them to almost the same size, including an angle cut on the end. Clamped them up and a jack plane to make sure that they did indeed match each other. Set out the notched keeper ...

Got to get this thing done! Spent the whole day, fixing the door with a handplane. Added cleats to hold a floor Then cut and install a couple floor boards Didn’t have enough plywood. Planks are 1/2”. Screwed in place,but no glue. Got the corner blocks all installedI can then cut slotted holes. Just drill a hole in center of the block, then rock the drill back and forth towards the sides. This allows the top to expand and contract as it wants. A single screw in ...
Moving right along, now. I checked the narrow panel end for square…..zero to 1/4” along one side, zero to 1/16” along the other side. Circular saw to rough the wider one back to square, not going to worry about the barely there one. Clamped the panel into the leg vise, added a clamp out in front, #5-1/2 jack plane to joint the edge. I think I can try a test fit of all the built-so-far parts.. As for that top laying under everything?, well, the #5-1/2 went to town...
