Stepback Cupboard in Pine #16: Catching up,2....case done, door start

03-19-2018 02:47 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, face frame out of the clamps. Stuck against the case, to mark out where to put a few screw holes at… These two came out, once the frame was laying on the bench.. Scratch awl to make a starter hole for the 3/8” forstner bit. Then drill a pilot hole.. Once all the holes were done, I moved the frame off the bench, and placed the case on the bench…Had an extra hole to fill. It just gets a counter sink. Bead of glue run around where the frame meets the case...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #15: Bookcase, face frame and top

03-19-2018 02:01 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to get caught up here…Face frame: Stanley 45 and a #22 bead cutter.. Two cuts to make the outside corner, a single for the inside edges…The top rail only got one bead. Fancy cuts, to produce a tenon, once I got sizes figured out.. Then made a few cuts into the stiles… And made a few mortises.. Top one was easy. the one for the bottom rail? I had to get things fine tuned, for the beads to line up just right Spread some glue, add some clamps.. ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #14: Bookcase started

03-15-2018 10:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, Those two longer sides, needed a rebate added to them. Once I figured out which was the “inside” “top”, Back and bottom and have both match….Clamped one side into the vise on the bench.. Checked the Wards 78 to see how it was set up.. Might be about right? full length shaving. Got both rebates done.. This will “house” the plywood back panel… Time to lay out for a few sliding dovetails… Used a book to set the sp...

Octave Mandolin #20: Custom Octave Mandolin

03-15-2018 03:10 AM by Tomy Hovington | 1 comment »

This project was commissioned and was quite the undertaking. My customer wanted a Octave Mandolin with a archtop and flat backboard. Since there was no blueprints to make such an instrument I had to do research, compile information and sketch my own drawing to even start the project. This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer. Maho...

Workshop redo #1: I Have a Terrible Habit

03-14-2018 11:38 PM by DJL1031 | 0 comments »

I am away from my home today. Away from the sawdust, smell of fresh cut cherry and paper thin ribbons of excess wood on my shop floor. I will not be dusting off my pants and shirt at 130 or 200AM. I will make no progress on the several projects that I have going on, both in and out of the shop. The time away has given me a chance to reflect on this short week and plan for my homecoming. That is when I plan on finishing my workbench replacement….. for about the third time in as many quar...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #13: Drawer installed, plugs and other adventures

03-13-2018 11:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got the clamps off the drawer….needed to clean up the dovetails a bit. One place I could not get to when all those clamps were in the way..was along the back edge of the drawer’s bottom. Large square to mark a line, roughly centered on the drawer’s back….added a few screws.. Should hold things in place. Drawer front had a huge knot in it… Drilled a hole for a bolt. Then laid out the same location at the other end of the drawer front, so these match...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #12: Build-a-drawer, 101

03-11-2018 08:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

two days to build one drawer? I am getting slow in my old age… Anyway, this may be a bit long, better get settled in…. Cut this to size..goal being to build a drawer around it. Had a couple “left-overs” for the sides, they needed to match in width and length…Length was at the bandsaw, later the mitre box. width was the easy part. Then “shot” the end grain straight..Set the sides aside for a bit. Corner joints will be through dovetails&...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #11: Top is done, case assembled

Worked in two separate sessions yesterday….had a morning “shift”, a trip to get a CT Scan on the head, then when we got back home, an evening shift….Morning stuff:Top was removed from the clamps, set aside for a while. Ripped a few 1×1s from the leftovers…needed to build out the drawer runners, for the drawer to slide on….also needed guides to keep the drawer centered in the opening… A bead of glue and a screw. Both are attached to the webf...

Shop Notes #11: A Productive Week

03-09-2018 08:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Getting my resaw blade in place really opened the floodgates this week. I finished gluing up and planing my mid-century modern boards. I also finished up some leftover chaotic pattern boards that were still hanging around from the holiday rush. By mid week, I was looking at a stack of some 17 cutting boards, ready for sanding. The chaotic boards were made 1 1/2” thick and haven’t sold well in that size. As a test, I sawed one into two 3/4” boards and ran them through ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #9: Catching things up, face frame installed

03-08-2018 11:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Amongst other “chores”....Doctor Visits, VA paperwork, the usual distractions… Anyway, I got the mortise and tenons done this week on the face frame…even did a glue up.. Had to cut a bit away, so the beads can wrap around the openings.. Will need a little clean up. Let the frame sit a day….then started an install.. Test fit to mark where the counter-bored screw holes would go….then drilled both the counter-bores and a pilot hole at each mark....
