Looking at a Challenge Jointer Plane

08-31-2017 05:44 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 2 comments »

The video is here https://youtu.be/iKMRu4B2D_k This plane recently came into my possession and I found it to be petty unique and cool. When I first got it I didn’t realize how rare they are, and if you’re a tool collector you will probably know what I’m talking about. Just did a little video showing the design (neat looking but very poorly thought out), thought some of you folks who are into neat vintage tools would enjoy seeing it. Enjoy!

Shop stuff #103: Photo frame

08-30-2017 02:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Perhaps the longest title of any video I have made. It started out as a simple build, but, as is my habit, I complicate it a bit. There is also joinery that I was not completely satisfied with, although it did come out OK for my first attempt at a half lap mitre,so I did a “fix” to it. Sometimes accidents are a benefit. Lots of hand work, which I love doing, but sometimes the machines just have to come out. View on YouTube

Maple Chest of Drawers #15: Last drawer, and a PIP

08-24-2017 07:48 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok….needed to get the last drawer DONE.. Wasn’t happy with the sides I had stash back for this drawer. Cut two sides from the maple plank the front and back came from. Atkins crosscutsaw’s turn, as I try to rotate the saws through a job. Jointer planes to get things all the same width. Drawer front and both sides need ripped to width. Marked a few lines around, got out the usual suspects, as I had ran a saw on the ends.. As usual, pins get done first, then t...

Maple Chest of Drawers #11: Top is done..

08-10-2017 02:34 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With a surprise ending, too….Got bored, decided to try the plank for the top…4/4×13-1/8” x 49” long…..heavier than it looked, awkward going down the steps to the shop…. After cutting off a chunk to get to a length for the case…..I thought I could not only flatten the slab out a bit, but get it close to 3/4” thick…...wasn’t happening on the thickness part, but I at least got it almost flat.. Width-wise, was too narrow. Wal...

Maple Chest of Drawers #10: Face frame follies

08-08-2017 06:12 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Sunday was a Road Trip….thought I would try Monday to do a little work in the shop.. Got three parts for face frame rails dovetailed. Needed to run the jointer over them to get them all to match each other…Fighting clamps while doing this, is not fun… Thought I’d get a bit fancy with the wider top rail…. But, when I went the chop out the matching pins….they merely broke off….Grrrr Tried the sockets for the main rails.. Which meant lif...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #8: One door done..

06-23-2017 12:36 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And one to go. Last weekend, I was away from the shop for a while. Had some tools to rehab. I went and got a few supplies for this Pantry Project. Turned out I needed a couple more items, more on that later. Ok, plan was to rip one of the 1×10s right down the middle. Not enough room in the shop….6’ board…cut it down to 5’1”.....much better. Bandsaw to do the rip. Needed to cut another 1×10 to that 61” length. Joint an edge, appl...
