Cherry Box of squares #5: Lid work

11-17-2016 10:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, just to get caught up a bit. Sized the lid’s frame parts for length, and started to dovetail the corners.. Four pieces, all nice and smoothed up, and then checked to make sure they would fit the box.. Then start with the dovetails. While normally I start with the pins…for some reason I wound up doing the tails first.. Not the best looking ones, pins looked better.. Hardest part for me is to remember which side of the lines to saw on.. Otherwise, I get loos...

Cherry Box of squares #2: Maybe a glue-up?

11-08-2016 02:21 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I had a stash of lighter coloured wood to milled into a panel for a lid.. Got most of these resawn down to around..1/2” thick. Had to surface a few to get close to that size. Jointed all the edges. Those beads on the boards? I ripped those off, as I can always make a new bead. Crosscut to almost the same length…..width was coming up a bit too narrow. Found a piece of cherryand jointed it to fit. Might as well put it into the center of the panel? Ok, Nor...

Pine Auger bit box #6: Page #3 in the clamps....finally

10-25-2016 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, some fellow named Gumption finally found where I was hiding out, so, off to the shop I went. I had that Stanley #45 set up as a “Hollows” plane. Yes, Stanley made cutters like this…...IF you can find, and even afford them. Anyway, started milling the rest of the grooves… Groove #2…fighting the grain, still Groove #3….I needed the cam rest, as I was out in the middle of nowhere. I was also no longer fighting the grain. Had to turn the bl...

Hot Hide Glue Experimentation #1: Prep and First Try

10-18-2016 01:17 PM by Lazyman | 2 comments »

I posted a forum topic recently asking about the best way to attach some veneer to a project I am planning and one of the recommendations was to use hot hide glue (HHG). I’ve seen posts before from fellow LJs about how much they like using HHG and have been meaning to to give it a try so I decided this was a good excuse. I will share my journey in this blog. Step 1: Research. I spent a couple of days understanding the history, uses, pros and cons, tools and techniques. Of course...

Pine Auger bit box #2: Finger Joints!

10-13-2016 11:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

GrandBRATS were being just that ….BRATS. Decided to try to hide in the shop for most of the day…...would have worked, too…..but I got “ratted out” by the Shop Cat. He kept banging on the door to the Dungeon Shop, until somebody let him in…....Drat. Well, I checked the four sides, found one was a bit out of flat. Not from warping, just the dummy running the bandsaw. Clamped the offending part to the bench, and plane things flatter.. Corners w...

Cheap wood 101

10-10-2016 02:27 PM by Fatherlewis | 5 comments »

Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...
