Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...
Grooves for planes cut, dividers and inserts dry fit with planes….... Glued and clamped…. Insetting hinges.
I recieved a email from Woodpeckers tool sale for some Glue-up Panel Blocks. I thought thats a cool idea and a quick way to keep boards flat while gluing them up. While the price seemed fair, I have a close friend thats has a machine shop and we always like hanging out and working together. He has alot of materaial stocked up over the years as well. So this is what we came up with. Size is 7” x 3” x 1 1/2” Aluminum. We machined them on the Brigeport...
Tops done, all Dados cut for dividers, and the box body is glued and clamped…..
Double lidded box for housing two planes, 1/4” cherry, 2 3/8”x 4”x 8 3/4”. Small plane is a 3” Stanley, U.S. make circa 1930’s. Larger plane is a 6 1/2” Stanley, Sheffield, UK, circa 1960’s, both found on Ebay. Clamping covers…...
After a busy week of work and life, last weekend allowed me a few hours to devote to this latest “Mystery Project”...Though it only took 3 1/2- 4 hours, the sides were finally joined sometime Saturday morning… The last side is the most work, as it requires two corners to be filed to fit… These larger sides don’t help, they’re harder to handle, so the sides were clamped to the router table to facilitate the fiing… I might have saved mys...
Some planes from the flea market.http://youtu.be/B8o0w020X84?list=UUd5zJvEvBsWALUYaChpNX8Q
So after two weeks of work and experimenting I have finally finished the parquet. All the 120 pieces are dead square and equal in size, down to a error of .01mm.So we made a total of 1200 pieces and only about 360-400 was usable. Than the best work begun, laying the pieces and gluing edge to edge: So after about 4 hours of intense concentration I was done. And a close-up: Tomorrow I will glue this up on a fibre board with a back of Brazilian Rosewood; got to have a nice und...
I just started the two end tables to go with the entertainment center in my last project posting, working on the larger of the two at 24” X 21”, and determining the top’s appearance.All of my boards are about 7” wide, with one board at 9 1/2” & is flat sawn. I would like to make a one board top, not possible obviously, so I am stretching two 9 1/2” side by side to 21” wide:In so doing, I decided to add one additional board(s) in the middle of thes...
