That OddLots Ad #9: Face frames, a start is made

09-13-2018 12:34 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

While waiting on this computer to wake up, and repair itself (never did….) decided to haul the rest of the Ash 1×6s on hand to the shop…. Would have been nice to just glue these three up into the top of the case….like everything else this morning, there were “issues” going on. Issue #1 Issue #2.. Kind of hard to glue up a panel with these involved. Third plank had a couple knots along one edge…Well, I could cut these down into parts fo...

How to dimension lumber with handtools #2: Reference Face

09-11-2018 01:56 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

In this video, I establish the reference face. The reference face will determine all other dimensions of the board. I begin by placing the board cup side down for stability then I determine which direction of the grain. Once the board is positioned on the workbench I chamfer the opposing edge and begin to plane the board perpendicular to the grain along the length of the board. Once the board is relatively flat side to side, I test for twist with my winding sticks. If twist exists, I plane d...

That OddLots Ad #5: Side panels are done

09-09-2018 12:07 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Panel #2 came out of the clamps today. Jointed one edge straight…then got the idea to clamp panel #1 to Panel #2 And joint the edges til they matched…that was the plan….however.. With the other sides even..had this much to remove…more than “Just a little off the top”...wasn’t ready to push the No.7c THAT much… out an older jack plane, and roughed things down a bit.. Just to get things close.. For the other two planes to finish ...

That OddLots Ad #2: Starting up

09-07-2018 11:47 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, these were hauled to the shop…took a couple trips.. All five needed to be cut down to around 41” long..leaves a bit to trim on the ends when done.. Marked out a cut line, trying to get the “best” of the board IN the 41”...the rest will be on stand-by for smaller parts Worked my way down the stack…each board was set up on a pair of scrap pine boards, and the a clamp to hold them all still, while I cut the excess wood off…. As much ...

Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 2 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #6: Assembled....and a forest of clamps

08-07-2018 02:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ends came out of the clamps…..test fits….weren’t that great. Decided not to cut a groove across the ends, just a notch in the bottom panel will do. Had to use a bunch of clamps, to get this thing together….one corner wasn’t going to line up….either the groove was off, or the tongue was… This was just the start of the follies…needed to add a couple cauls, to pull the ends into square…. More clamps. one on each end..Then, no...

Big cabinet for the new home #6: Its done! Wrap up, "Once you go black......"

08-03-2018 04:51 PM by Lalen | 6 comments »

Spread over three months, this thing is finally done. Quite the adventure and I learned a lot. Just wanted to share some final in-use pictures and thank those who gave input. One bit of feedback early on led me to the change of the doors from 6 top to bottom to 12 with a small upper and a lower door. I also put 3 hinges on the lower door to ensure it is well supported over time. (middle one is off center so it won’t interfere with the shelf.) For those who expressed interest in ...

Chest of Pine Drawers #12: one drawer fitted, another begun

07-19-2018 02:08 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got the first drawer out of the clamps yesterday…..planes and the beltsander to clean things up. Had to keep working on the sides…drawer was binding a bit….finally got it to almost close….wax on the moving parts helped with that last inch….added a pair of knobs, so I could at least pull the drawer back out… Hauled both 1×8 planks to the shop. Circular saw to cut out the very bad spots…. A regular Knot Farm. Somehow managed to get en...

Chest of Pine Drawers #11: Dovetails?

07-18-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ah yes, the old debate….Tails first..vs..Pins first…...Dungeon Shop goes Pins first. So.. My bevel square. There is a small combo square laying there as well. bevel is set to the angle I use for dovetails(need to write it down, sometime..) Where the groove comes through, one side of the pin is straight. Covers the groove. Then I work from each edge towards the center, laying out a few pins. had two backsaws to use, one was the “Veteran” and the other was...
