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 ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #10: Catching up, part 2,making a top panel

03-09-2018 12:16 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

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...

More tools in the shop #2: New Additions and Wiring for new machinery

03-02-2018 11:30 PM by Plasmon360 | 0 comments »

Before reading some of the electrical work I wrote in this article, please note that I am not an electrician and have no suggestions to anyone. This post is to document my experience and is not a “how to” post. As stated in my last post, I acquired a table saw (unisaw) which turned out to be a great deal. Following that I also got a heavy duty chisel mortiser, planer, and jointer from the same seller (they seem to be a good deal). I will write about them in detail in later post...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #3: side panels worked on

02-25-2018 03:28 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got both panels done, for now….one of the rare days I could spend an afternoon IN the shop.. Once I figured which face goes to which face, I stacked the two panels together, clamped them up. Then used the saw /router guide to square both ends. Then, since the panels were still clamped up, I jointed the edges… Had to use the jack plane on a couple knotty spots, then the big guy could finish up.. Less time hauling the 10 pounder around, that way. Left the panels cl...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #2: Second Panel done, and a clean up..

02-24-2018 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Second panel was glued up…. Used the old jointer again….This time around, the clamps were a bit different. Started with the middle clamp. Got all three boards in the same “plane” and made sure they stayed put. then worked my way towards the ends….the cauls were doubled up….Less marks in the good wood. Far end used a pair of Visegrip Finger clamps to hold the pair…got a little crowded. Good thing the clamp was already tightened down...

Ok, seems I did so well making the last one out of Ash…now my Daughter wants one….and, since she usually PAINTS ( grrrrrr) her furniture items…..hers will get made from Pine….then I’ll hand her a brush…. There was a few design changes, as well…..the raised panel door on the lower cabinet? No longer there, open shelves (2) with a face frame around them. I still get to build the two drawers, though. upper cabinet will stay the same…..fo...

Not sure IF this is the hard way, or the easy way, to build a door….About 11:00 am started down to the shop…going to be a LONG day.Got the panel out of the clamps..wasn’t too bad, really…..set up to square the ends. Little 6” circular saw to make the cuts…..then tried to flatten the faces of the panel a little bit better.. Meh…work in progress, was also trying to decide which face looked the best…..coin flip?Set up one other power tool.. ...

A Stepback Cupboard build #12: Bookcase needs a door

01-27-2018 03:30 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, I snuck back down to the shop later that night…..fought with the bandsaw to rip a few boards.. Plan was to rip two stiles, and two rails, to build a frame to house a raised panel door…..1/2” blade was duller than…. Threw it away, the only sharp blade left in the shop was a 1/4” wide one. Somehow managed to rip the four pieces to width….the two in the picture are the rails. Wavy as an old county road. Had to use a jointer plane to level ...
