Shop stuff #135: Roubo build Pt 6

09-02-2018 03:23 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

There really is a lot of work gets done in the 12 minutes this video runs. Not a lot to show for it but a nice, fairly square slab top for the Roubo bench. A bit of a treat at the end to show what is in the future of this build. Naturally while this work goes on there is also a heat wave with high humidity going on. That makes it short days in the shop, as soon as the sweat starts pooling in my glasses I can’t see and I call it a day….lol. View on YouTube

De plane! de plane!

08-19-2018 10:45 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

I wanted to try making a small-ish hand plane with a spare cheap chisel that I had around. The body is maple and the bar is brass rod. The blade is from a 1” chisel with the handle cut off. The wedge is also maple. The finish is linseed oil. Mandatory glueup photo:

Maple Frame & Panel Box #8: Handles installed, case is varnished

08-12-2018 08:57 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And about ready to post as a Project. Handles went on…using the same Yankee #41 push drill to do pilot holes.. Big handles on the ends.. Went with this for the lid. Shellac applied to the lid, and a few spots that I missed earlier…. Needed a way to hold this lid opened, like this….without using something to prop it open.. Some black chain, cut to length, and a pair of the smallest cup hooks I could dig up… Once I got the final length ( missed it by ...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #7: Lid installed, handle options...

08-10-2018 10:57 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Before I left for the hospital stay…and knowing no stairs would be allowed….I brought the box and the lid up stairs. Lid had been sanded, front corners were cut round. Block plane to ease a few edges….then let it sit a while… Until that hole in the leg heals up, this is going to be my shop….working as I can…lid? Not much was done yesterday..once I got back home…was a tad “loopy”. Hinges are a small item I can do, today. Yep...

“Roman” saw

08-10-2018 08:44 PM by Dave Rutan | 15 comments »

I started making this about a year ago, but just finished it this week. It is my version of a Roman Empire era hand saw. I made the blade from flat steel from the hardware store and cut the teeth with a triangular file. The handle is maple treated with flame and the ferrule is copper with a brass rivet. I finished it with linseed oil. I’m amazed at how well it cuts. It’s very aggressive. I rusted the blade to give it an ancient artifact look.

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...

Building a booKshelf with an Art Deco Pattern Carved in The Side

This build was for a client earlier this year. She had this pattern on some wallpaper and loved it so we incorporated the pattern into the bookshelf sides and carved it out with a V bit If you are interested in its creation feel free to watch the video Project Recap Once I got the design approved by the client a made a print to scale pattern and used a little spray adhesive to attach it to a piece of plywood so I could turn it into a template.I didn’t fuss around with trying to...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #5: Ends are made

08-05-2018 02:18 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first..the front and back frames came out of the clamps…..not quite perfectly matched…we have ways Clamped together, back to back. Ran the #3c plane around, until they are matched up.. Set these aside, for now. Have the four corner blocks for the end frames to do….cut them all to the final length on the mite box. Gang them up into the vise, and try to get them all the same size.. One of them was having “issues”. Had a bit of trouble with i...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #4: Time for a little assembly?

08-04-2018 04:40 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Got both panels out of the clamps….needed to bevel the edges, to make them into Raised Panels… First, they needed trimmed and jointed, so they will fit into the frames….then a jig was made up So I could bevel the end grain ends first, and check for fit… Bevel extends about 3/4” back from the edge..once both ends were beveled, the the long grain edges were done.. Once both edges were done, and the frame for the back of the box was ready…glue and ...
