Split Top Roubo Bench Build #9: Finishing up the tail vise

03-19-2015 12:57 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Yesterday the last thing I did was cut up that big walnut board and laminate two pieces for the leg vise. Took it out of the clamps this morning and I think I’ll wait for this Sunday before going forward with it. After I was done yesterday, I was in the house and heard this big crash. I never did find out what it was until this morning I saw the walnut glue up had fallen off my table saw and bent one of my hand screw clamps. Oops. In the meantime, I worked on the d...

Wedding Clock #9: Sides

06-17-2011 03:21 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

Now that the front and back have been assembled, I’m on to making the sides and the shelves that will sit in dados cut into the sides. Today’s blog is getting thoses sides made and ready for the dado process. That means basic milling. So I start with rough lumber, layed out for the best match I think. I check the direction the grain is running by planing a bit on each piece. This will allow the grain to be running the same when the whole piece is glued up and, hopefully, make...

Tool chest update #1: Beginning the plan

02-02-2013 11:54 PM by Dan Krager | 0 comments »

I’ve decided to update (slowly) the tool chests that I use to keep things handy, as in within arms reach of bench. No tools are allowed on bench (usually) so with each use things get put back where they are stored. This sketch is a design thought. It does not fully meet the modularity requirement. I also want to put doors on the chests, but just how is still unanswered. I’m considering tambour, pushing up to open. Suggestions and comments are welcome.DanK

This is my first exercise in mortise and tenon and its been alot of fun. I hope to get better...

Tool chest update #5: 1 of 3 almost complete

07-19-2013 01:55 AM by Dan Krager | 13 comments »

The first of three chests is almost complete. I can’t afford to put doors on it yet, so I plan to use it as is. There are five more planes to house, and trunk corners to put on (still looking for them…they’re a little special because the three corner ones don’t work on an open front). I’ve settled on magnets to secure the planes below, the upper ones need more, so cleats look promising.Thanks for your interest.DanK

Box jointed box

06-28-2010 02:20 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

In conjunction with a bunch of other guys on another forum, we are putting together a group build of a tube guitar amp. My contribution will be a raw, unfinished, rough sanded cabinet for the amp. We finally got the dimensions nailed down to where I could make a prototype. The project gave me a chance to use my new TS box joint jig (Shop Notes version). I have a bunch of 16’ rough cut pine 1×12’s. So I lopped off 2 lengths long enough to do 1 long side and 1 short side...

Experiment: Table top grain matching - gone wrong.

09-08-2014 07:03 PM by Oldtool | 9 comments »

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...

Tool Box #2: case work

08-12-2014 11:01 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

Work Shop Organization #2: Power Tool Storage Update

01-02-2015 11:14 AM by Nate66 | 3 comments »

After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.
