Maple/oak project/desk #5: Clamps, I need CLAMPS

07-03-2015 02:19 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to do some glue ups. Took the clamps off of the dry fit. Plan was to start as small as I could, and work my way out from there. Last night, just two clamps, and some Elmers. Center divider got clamped into the front board. Let it sit overnight. Next morning, got a few items done. A router tabel set up to make pencil grooves, start and stop marks and locator marks for the round nosed coce bit. Had those same marks on the oak 2×2…..well they helped at first. One...

07-21-2014 08:40 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

today i got the chest cover routed. This is a simple chest so I did a simple edge. A plain cove. .. . I braced the underside of the cover with maple cross pieces. Four recessed screws and glue. .tapered plugs will fill the screw head holes. I’ll chisel them off and sand them tomorrow after the glue dries. .I picked up a couple of boxes of aromatic cedar at home depot. Pretty expensive stuff I might add. It’s glued and pin nailed in. the pin nails of course are l...

Revonoc 28" Restoration

06-07-2015 07:51 PM by Mambrax | 3 comments »

Over view of a Revonoc 28” Restoration. Got it a rummage sale for $20. probably paid to much, but i never saw a other one like that before.So step 1 : removing all part. Be-ward of dead bugs !!! As seen it was in rough shape. Most all those get wrap all possible way, which make them unusable. It’s very important to square them out before any think. Now a plane that size is almost impossible to sand for the normal man like me. The only way is that I personally can u...

Tool thoughts #7: Lumber Rack

09-01-2008 03:34 AM by NedB | 3 comments »

Looted my storage unit today. I had this pile of wood in there… plus just a bit more ‘shorts’ and ‘cutoffs’ but they’ll come home tomorrow. I had to clear out the rack just above the mitersaw, so I put up a couple more arms on the wall and moved the short stock over there. I won’t need to buy too much wood for awhile.. who am I kidding anyway? Mostly cherry, (middle section), plus some maple and butternut (bottom and top sections) ...
