A Stepback Cupboard build #13: Build a door?

01-28-2018 01:21 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Not sure IF this is the hard way, or the easy way, to build a door….About 11:00 am started down to the shop…going to be a LONG day.Got the panel out of the clamps..wasn’t too bad, really…..set up to square the ends. Little 6” circular saw to make the cuts…..then tried to flatten the faces of the panel a little bit better.. Meh…work in progress, was also trying to decide which face looked the best…..coin flip?Set up one other power tool.. ...

A Stepback Cupboard build #12: Bookcase needs a door

01-27-2018 03:30 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, I snuck back down to the shop later that night…..fought with the bandsaw to rip a few boards.. Plan was to rip two stiles, and two rails, to build a frame to house a raised panel door…..1/2” blade was duller than…. Threw it away, the only sharp blade left in the shop was a 1/4” wide one. Somehow managed to rip the four pieces to width….the two in the picture are the rails. Wavy as an old county road. Had to use a jointer plane to level ...

A Stepback Cupboard build #10: Shelves, and a top shelf

01-23-2018 05:40 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Won’t be quite as long winded, this time around…..Had three blanks for shelves…..they needed to fit into the sliding dovetails I milled into the sides. Had the router set up.. With a fence. Needed a way to support it, while making a cut…..decided to gang all three blanks up.. And do a few test runs.. They were a bit ragged, but a small file soon cleaned them up.. Had a few errands to run…came back and made a few more cuts..Got all six pins done,...

A Stepback Cupboard build #9: The Upper case/Bookcase started

01-22-2018 04:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Been a bit busy, will try to get things up to date. Ripped one of the new planks down, and jointed a few edges… Got things so any gaps went away.. Glue and clamps.. then repeat for the other two boards.. Let this sit a day, or so…..I laid out for a few shelves. Borrowed one of the books that will be housed in this bookcase, to get the spacings I needed.. And cut three blanks for the shelves….Will have to add a bit to the blanks, to get them deep enough&#...

Japanese Inspired Picture Frame Greene&Greene / Shou Sugi Ban.

01-15-2018 10:10 PM by Gbluee | 3 comments »

I worked for 22 years in the steel manufacturing sector. 11 of those years were for a trailer manufacturing company. When I left I asked them for a picture file they had of the whole crew of one of the biggest project I was involved in while working there.I decided to make a Greene&Greene mixed with Shou Sugi Ban for the finish.I also made a video of the build and it is on my You Tube Channel. I’ll leave a link to it below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFcQnPI5OqM&t=27s

A Stepback Cupboard build #7: Door is done....

01-11-2018 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, I did get a panel glued up this week.. And let it sit a day…..today, it came out of the clamps. Marked for final width, and a rip cut made on the bandsaw. Then face planed to remove some high spots.. Along with jointing the sawn edge. Width was now set, length was about as close as I could get it. Marked a line along one end, to do a bevel across the grain….. Panel raising. This panel is a bit on the thick side. (more on that in a bit) Paul Selle...

A Stepback Cupboard build #6: Drawer fitted, door started

01-09-2018 01:33 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, got the drawer fine tuned, once it came out of the clamps.. Dovetails now look a bit better…..Installed two strips of scrap onto the runners in the case, where the drawer will slide. Added a pair of shiny knobs…. So I can pull the drawer back out. Knob details? Nothing real fancy.. Drawer was sticking a bit…easy fix. I let the case sit over night, to let the glue holding the guides strip in place cure. Pulled the drawer out, and ran a #4 plane along t...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leaver up right.
