Chest of Pine Drawers #10: Plugging along

07-18-2018 02:26 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was a very busy day, yesterday…..so I’ll post this in a couple episodes today. First off, needed to get the case off the bench. To do that, I needed to make a bunch of plugs, install them…and then trim them all flush…. Veritas 3/8” Tapered Plug Cutter.. It does have a bad habit of biting off a plug, now and then. I try to avoid any knots, as well….a pin knot got “plugged”, anyway…Cutter ate 2, chewed up a third, and that pi...

Big cabinet for the new home #5: Working on the doors: Need opinion on reinforcements.

07-06-2018 12:13 PM by Lalen | 4 comments »

Changed the design back to bigger windows, and boy am I glad. Making 12 doors required 72 parts. Here is a dry fit of one upper and lower door. I used the Glass Panel Door router set from Sommerfeld’s Tools. I found his videos on youtube and found it very helpful and so I ordered his set and followed his process. Here is my question. Because my lower doors are fairly large (47”x16”) I am wondering if I may need to reinforce the corner joints. Here is a couple ...

Meandered back to the shop, yesterday….had a few things to mill up… Side #1 still had two of these sockets to do… While that light comes in handy to see lines..camera hates it…Set this side over in the leg vise.. I knew there was a reason that shelf stuck out a bit…set up the Wards #78… Scratch awl is to pick stuck shavings out….also had a scrap of 1/4” plywood handy..to check the depth of cut.. Thumb was getting a bit sore. On...

Spring Bench #1: Building a bench around an 1800's wagon spring

06-30-2018 03:26 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

My friend Leon Kytle in Idaho Falls gave me this old spring from a wagon seat from the 1800’s and asked me to design a bench around it and give him the plans so he could build one too around the other spring. I drew it up in Arizona with the bend up and down and decided it looked better with it bent down. I made us templates of the spring curve and gave him a drawing of how I was going to make it. But when I got home he called and said he thought the spring should be wider for stabil...

Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

Bedframe is completed, installed, posted….Boss approved…soooo, I can get back to that little table? Since this thing was still out, I cut the bad sections out of the 1×4s..enough “good” was left..

That 2×10 under them? may have a used for it, on another project…right now it is in the way…clamps came off the top…ran a plane along all four edges.. Which...

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdgtdxMRqok

Coffee table #1: Some pics of my daughters coffee table

05-13-2018 12:47 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi all, I was asked by daughter #2 to build a coffee table of her and her partners design. I had some Tasmanian Blackwood floating around in the shed which I thought would be nice for the frame and had some beautiful 1/4 sawn tasmanian Oak at the wood club that was free (old church pews) which I thought I could use for the top. Although the original intension was a live edge piece. This can be changed easily at a later time if she still wants the slab top. The Oak for the top, while ...
