Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #4: Door Success!

09-03-2015 02:56 PM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

Got up this morning eager to test my theory on what was going wrong with my door. Just as I had thought last night, I wasn’t going deep enough into the bit. Moved the fence back to line up with the nut above the bearing and, BAM, it went together like a champ!

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #3: Raised Panel Door Fabrication

09-03-2015 01:48 AM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

It has been a while since there has been an update on this cabinet. I have gotten a little side-tracked with other projects. I will be working on a torsion box assembly / outfeed table this weekend. As you can see in the pictures, I don’t have a space big enough to put this door together. I am using a Freud raised panel bit set to make these doors. It is my first attempt at raised panel doors. All the pictures were taken during dry fitting. In the first picture you can see the rails ...

My first big build, and what a journey it's been. Yet another workbench. #3: The legs, the frame and a whole bunch of joinery

08-31-2015 10:27 PM by Lind | 0 comments »

The top felt really solid and I was starting to get a feeling for the weight I’d eventually end up with. I wanted to fix my mistake with the tenon walls I’d sawn prior to the assembly so I could fit the breadboards: I decided to just chop it out with a sharp chisel. I enjoyed this process a lot, which was fortunate considering that I spent the better part of a weekend putting the bottom together and attaching it to the top. Safe to say I got to hone both my chiseling and my...

Screw advance box joint jig

08-24-2015 01:24 PM by Elyasaf Shweka | 5 comments »

Matthias Wandell is a genius, and his Screw advance box joint jig is a marvel. I made this finger joint with the jig built by his plans (I upgraded it recently).The ruller is Metric, not Inch. every finger is 2.5mm thick ׂ(=0.09 inch) The stock is 6mm thick, maple. came up perfect with no gaps at all in first try. Making all the finger joints for the box took less than 2 min.

08-19-2015 12:25 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

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 ...

Stanley No. 104 Wood Level Restoration

08-16-2015 03:59 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

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...

The drill box #2: Working on a bottom for the box

08-15-2015 07:53 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

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. ...

08-15-2015 07:35 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

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...
