In this one I get the carcass of the chest finished up and assembled. Turns out bigger than I thought, and that is a good thing. View on YouTube
I need to clear a spot in my shop to continue insulating and sheathing the walls. I want to get rid of my tool chest, so I am making a built in unit to replace it. I start with making the sides of the chest. View on YouTube
Beginning to dislike hand cut half blind Dovetails…...PITA to do.. This is the second one I’ve ever done, without using an electric router and jig…..Maybe after a few more, I might get decent at these? Second side is out of the clamps, legs have their beads milled And stashed over with the first side. Dovetails are passable.. Ok, besides cleaning up a new plane I traded for, I did manage to make a drawer today. First, since I am done with the bead cutter, I cou...
In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs
well a little progress has been made unfortunately i’m hesitant to do too much because i may lose the place with the recent employment termination and lack of resources in new state. <div></div> But anyway i was going to move my 4×8 work bench in as a alt. out-feed table, but instead i added on a 18”x40” removable leaf for now. I did get the base and stationary fence done on my cross cut sled, next is assembling the adjustable miter fence and attaching it. got...
Tired of coffee table videos yet? I took a break from editing it and put this one together. Yes, a complete build in one video! My niece needed a key and mail organiser for her new home. View on YouTube
I needed a way to move my jointer from its present location at one end of my shop to the other end so it would be closer to the table saw. I also wanted a way to move it out when I need it and then move it back into a corner when not in use (I don’t use it all that much). I had this HTC mobile base that I bought for my table saw years ago – I don’t have the saw anymore – so I wanted to use the mobile base for the jointer. the problem was that although the base w...
First blog post! I’ve been making shavings for about two years now using this monstrosity vaguely resembling a bench: It’s the most incredible bench ever, measuring in at a roomy 11’ long and 36” high. Has two shelves and even supports a kitchen sink attachment, however the previous owner either didn’t spring for it or took it with them. EVERY surface is curved (great for setting planes bottom-down, no need to worry about the blade dulling) and it rocks...
In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...
I have finally started on the marimba. I am following the plans I got from makeamarimba.com. They are a good plans although some times you have to translate from oz to usa english. I did a lot of searching on line on commercial marimbas and settled on padauk for the keyboard and cherry for the frame. The preferred wood for concert keyboards is rosewood. I called my hardwood supplier to get a price on rosewood when I was able to breath again I decided padauk was a good keyboard wood (most...
