Stepback Cupboard in Pine #17: Build a door

03-21-2018 09:57 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trip to the Blue Borg….wound up with a pair of CLEAR 1×6 x 4’ boards….Got those cut to length….had to rip the fancy boards to remove a couple bad knots.. Both boards had a knot like this….Figured out how wide I needed for the panel…made a couple rip cuts. Has more waves than the N. Korean Cheer Squad….We have ways.. Also cleaned up the edges on the “new” boards, was finally able to glue up a panel.. I also cut grooves i...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #16: Catching up,2....case done, door start

03-19-2018 02:47 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, face frame out of the clamps. Stuck against the case, to mark out where to put a few screw holes at… These two came out, once the frame was laying on the bench.. Scratch awl to make a starter hole for the 3/8” forstner bit. Then drill a pilot hole.. Once all the holes were done, I moved the frame off the bench, and placed the case on the bench…Had an extra hole to fill. It just gets a counter sink. Bead of glue run around where the frame meets the case...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #15: Bookcase, face frame and top

03-19-2018 02:01 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to get caught up here…Face frame: Stanley 45 and a #22 bead cutter.. Two cuts to make the outside corner, a single for the inside edges…The top rail only got one bead. Fancy cuts, to produce a tenon, once I got sizes figured out.. Then made a few cuts into the stiles… And made a few mortises.. Top one was easy. the one for the bottom rail? I had to get things fine tuned, for the beads to line up just right Spread some glue, add some clamps.. ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #14: Bookcase started

03-15-2018 10:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, Those two longer sides, needed a rebate added to them. Once I figured out which was the “inside” “top”, Back and bottom and have both match….Clamped one side into the vise on the bench.. Checked the Wards 78 to see how it was set up.. Might be about right? full length shaving. Got both rebates done.. This will “house” the plywood back panel… Time to lay out for a few sliding dovetails… Used a book to set the sp...

03-15-2018 03:10 AM by Tomy Hovington | 1 comment »

This project was commissioned and was quite the undertaking. My customer wanted a Octave Mandolin with a archtop and flat backboard.

This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer. Maho...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #13: Drawer installed, plugs and other adventures

03-13-2018 11:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got the clamps off the drawer….needed to clean up the dovetails a bit. One place I could not get to when all those clamps were in the way..was along the back edge of the drawer’s bottom. Large square to mark a line, roughly centered on the drawer’s back….added a few screws.. Should hold things in place. Drawer front had a huge knot in it… Drilled a hole for a bolt. Then laid out the same location at the other end of the drawer front, so these match...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #12: Build-a-drawer, 101

03-11-2018 08:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

two days to build one drawer? I am getting slow in my old age… Anyway, this may be a bit long, better get settled in…. Cut this to size..goal being to build a drawer around it. Had a couple “left-overs” for the sides, they needed to match in width and length…Length was at the bandsaw, later the mitre box. width was the easy part. Then “shot” the end grain straight..Set the sides aside for a bit. Corner joints will be through dovetails&...

Shop Notes #11: A Productive Week

03-09-2018 08:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Getting my resaw blade in place really opened the floodgates this week. I finished gluing up and planing my mid-century modern boards. I also finished up some leftover chaotic pattern boards that were still hanging around from the holiday rush. By mid week, I was looking at a stack of some 17 cutting boards, ready for sanding. The chaotic boards were made 1 1/2” thick and haven’t sold well in that size. As a test, I sawed one into two 3/4” boards and ran them through ...

Ok, got the 1×8 x 8’ plank to the shop, somehow….had the bench cleared off, and ready to do a bit of work… Saw was needed to make a few cuts….needed three pieces 27” long…lay out a cut line.. Making sure the line was hanging over the end far enough to miss the bench vise…. Was trying NOT to include this into one of the pieces.. But, to get rid of this ugly thing, I had to use it’s little brother.. We have ways…..the fir...

Hammer A3-41 #2: Moving an 800 pound jointer/planer into my basement shop

03-06-2018 08:34 PM by CharlieK | 4 comments »

View on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h2sW8dLpO4 I was a little concerned about the initial delivery of the new combo machine, especially since I have a long driveway it’s wintertime here in Minnesota. When my bandsaw was delivered several years ago the driver wouldn’t back into my driveway. He just parked on the street and we wheeled it up to the garage on a pallet jack. As you can see by my first post, those concerns were unnecessary. NOW, I had to get th...
