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...

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...

Why Chris Schwarz is so skinny.

07-24-2009 06:22 PM by Ben | 9 comments »

I’m currently building a work bench and I’m trying to use as many hand tools in the building process as possible. I’ve been planing the legs for the past couple days, and after each leg I feel like I need to down a bottle of water, and I have. My muscles are sore and I’m out of breath. Now I’m 24 years old and in pretty good shape, but this is a hard task. I still have the top to plane as well. So to get to the point of the title. We all know “The Sch...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #12: Living with old tools

05-12-2011 12:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Late last year, before I put the saw away for the winter, a piece of the casting on the tablesaw broke. It was causing some vibration and the blade to move side to side a bit when adjusting height. Not good in conjunction with zero clearance inserts. Anyway, it is getting warm again and time to get the saw ready for what I hope will be a productive summer. The “key” as I am calling it had to be fixed. There are 2 parts that mount on a shaft and are keyed together you can see ...

Chicken Coop #1: Gathering tools and supplies

05-10-2010 04:56 PM by fiddlebanshee | 6 comments »

The 7×8 lean-to shed is going to be delivered tonight. This is a simple but sturdy Amish built shed with a roof that is about 6’ at one side and 5’ at the other. We plan on having between 10 and 15 chickens to free range and rid our yard of ticks, since my husband has been afflicted with lyme disease. The structure does not have any windows or ventilation, nor any “chicken-furniture”, so I’ll have to modify it. This is my first big remodeling/woodworki...

Tool Box #2: lid building

08-17-2014 01:47 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

and panel raisin’ Got the Pine panel out of the clamps. Hand planed to as flat as I could get in. Time to raise a panel. Same way as the side panels. Mark out a “stop line” about 1” in from the edge. Take a #4 sized handplane, set it a bit deep. Go at a diagonal to the grain. Plane until you reach the stop line, check the remainder of the edge for straightness. As you get close to the finish line, back off the depth of cut. I do the end grain ...

Clamp Cart #1: Quick Frameup

10-27-2014 02:58 AM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

I keep hearing you can never have too many clamps. I expect that’s because I always misplace these or are left in a pile to be sorted out. I was watching several videos on YouTube on clamp storage. Steve Ramsey redid his storage putting clamp racks behind a door. No such luck in my shop. Someone had made the “ultimate” clamp and wood storage cart, however, a 30” x 96” cart is out of the question also. However, several of the ideas from that build and a ...
