A computer desk #10: Been busy, need to get caught up

01-18-2019 01:00 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Where was I? Had some mortises to chop? Well, I set up the router table, to mill grooves to hold all those pencils/pens Needed a few of these chopped out. Backer strip for the pencil holder..Was going to use the thin Ash strips…..went out and bought a 1/4” thin strip of Poplar, instead.. Rather than a full width hole, I made them to accept a notched end….drawer shelf is now full depth….dry fitted Had to trim the poplar a few times…kept wanting ...

A computer desk #5: Sunday's Workout

01-07-2019 08:38 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Needed to change to a cove bit on the router….legs, aprons and stretchers needed their moldings done, before any glue ups could be done. “Router lift” to adjust the depth of cut… I was going to clamp the parts to the bench, and mill the coves…bench was still set up for the mortises I needed to chop….clamped the parts to the tablesaw’s wing.. I’d run the router up to the clamp, then move the clamp to the far end, then finish the cutsR...

Shop stuff #143: A table for the TV

12-22-2018 03:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

My neighbour asked me if I could build a table for her TV to sit on. Originally, she wanted it painted, I talked her out of that after I milled up the stock for the legs. A lot of work using re claimed and left over wood but it turned out pretty decent in the end. I made this one a longer format as the holidays are upon us and I thought something to settle in and watch would be the way to go. This may depend on how well you get along with the rest of the family and how much alcohol is con...

Grandson's Coffee Table #6: Worked on the top

12-14-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Drawer works….time to work on the top.. Edges needed jointed….but…there was something else needing worked on.. If it is this bad on one face, imagine what the other face is like….calls for a different kind of jack plane.. So, what is so special about this old Corsair C-5? Set up as a “Scrub-Jack” has a huge mouth, and an 8” radius to the iron…First, I needed to “cut some corners” 2” radius curves….and, si...

Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 2 comments »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...
