At least. Spend some time getting five slats resawn out of a 4×4.. Found of of these had a shortage of knots. Cut it down to 26” long. Then, marked a line just over 2” wide, and resawed the excess off. Set that aside with the other two.. As I can make seat slats, or armrests out of them. Set the main event so I could slice off 1/2” thick slabs, 2”wide.. Since I already had the side on the bench, I could lay out the slats as they came off the ban...
been a few days? A couple of glue ups did indded happen…. Second one was also done. Set them aside for now… And started to work on the seat parts… Sawn a curve where the slats for the seat will attach. Each one of these is just a hair longer than the other. Front one being the widest, and the back one the narrowest. There is a middle one. set up with 1” long tenons on the ends. This will do for now. Had resaw work to do, twice.. Used one of the...
Side #1 was completed today.. The tenons go into “housed’ joints, where I trim the area around the stretcher, where it meets the post. I just saw a bit on either side, chisel a flat spot, ajust the tenon for length. Clamped the other rocker to the completed side. had some marks to transfer over to the next set of posts. After messing up the notches in the rocker the last time by doing the posts first. This time around, I made the notches first. Set the square to...
This really helped me. Hope it helps you guys. I just screwed 2 pieces of wood together to form a right angle that my plane could rest and ride on while jointing. The result was 90 degrees dead on. Watch the video here.!https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/o7i91zj.jpg!
Well, after rehabbing a few other items from the Birthday Rust Hunt…..time to resume that rocking Chair project? Figured i’d need some 4/4×4 stock to make a few things for the back and seat. Been using the bandsaw…it was making a lot of racket, got to looking around…and wound up tearing it down. Lower thrust bearing was out too far. rubbing on the frame. Got it back, the tracking reset, so i had to work on the upper guides as well. Might get a new b...
This is the final video in this series. Before final assembly, I finish the piece with shellac and Waterlox for the cherry, and water based poly for the maple parts. I also show how I made the custom pulls for the doors and the drawer from ebony and maple. I show how I hide the magnetic catches for the doors so they are almost invisible. Then it’s on to the task of installing them correctly on the curved surfaces. The rest of the interior pieces get installed, the top and back get...
Well, sanded down some of the fingers that were sticking up.. After which, I ran a small combo square and a pencil around Trying to land somewhere besides right on a pin. Plane was to saw the lid part from the box’s bottom. Handsaw would be a bit too rough on things, and get into a bind. Bandsaw? A bit hard to do, and see where I was cutting. Yard sale item might just work… I cut one end first, to get the hang of using this heavy saw. Then cut the long side...
Some went nicely…some resulted in clamps flying across the shop….Ever try to clamp up a thin panel? Finally, to stop all the hijinks going on, used the vise to hold the two flat, and then added the clamps. Had rebates to mill along the bottom edges of all four sides.. The 78 to mill it, the shoulder plane did the clean up…except for my floor, though. No longer have Igor for broom work, I guess I get to do that. laid out the recess for the shoulder plane to sit ...
Again. Well, a trip to Lowes produced a couple of boards….3/8 by 5-1/2 wide. One was 2’ long, the other was 3’. Laid out the two planes that will go into the box. Needed a length and a width..But, before too much got done, decided to clear the deck, and clean it up a bit…. Seems it has been abused lately.. Anyway, once I got a length, I could grab a crosscut saw and saw to a line.. Just barely leaving the line.. Hey, the original “Cordless...
