Not moving the best, this week, forced to take things a bit easy…..Ok, to get caught up with this project…. Got the fourth panel all glued up….and even did a test fit… Which left the problem of the glue joints at the corners….took yesterday off…wasn’t feeling too good.. Today, after a decent rest, went SLOWLY to the shop…trying to keep the trips up and down the stairs as low as I can…..Set up an end panel in the vise… I...

A project in Maple #4: Much better day

09-25-2017 12:12 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Even got a few things done! Right after this morning’s Blog post, went to the shop. Had the panel to be raised.. Once that was done….started on the frames to hold the raised panels….Had some “leftovers” took those to the existing panels…..marked for length. Marked for width at 1-1/8” wide. Set up the resaw jig. Ran all four stiles through. Then ganged them up, after cutting a foot detail on one end.. #4 smooth plane was still out, u...

A project in Maple #3: Another glue up, with problems

09-24-2017 02:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Thought I could get another glue up done….. Like before, I milled a few tenons. Shoulder cuts on the mitre box, cheek cuts on the bandsaw. That shoulder plane helped tune a couple tenons… Got out the old mortise jig….It was set up for these 3/4” thick rails. Chopped the center mortises in the rails…stiles are 4/4 thick, had to re-adjust the jig…..to chop a few mortises… BTW, Dog holes are an excellent way to keep chisels from rolling of...

A project in Maple #2: Hey, glue ups!

09-21-2017 01:28 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Today, was much better. Even remembered to turn the shop light and the fan on! Goal was to get at least the front assembly glued up, and a start on the back assembly.. Last two mortises were chopped…did a few fittings with the rest of the parts. There was another panel glued up….took it out of the clamps, and used the two completed raised panels to mark out for size…..blank was an inch shorter than I wanted…..decided a wider center stile would work….set...

A project in Maple #1: start ups

09-21-2017 01:02 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still had a stack of Maple “scraps” sitting around, needed a project to use them up on…...maybe a small blanket chest? Let’s see… This is most of the wood supply….I also went and bought a 1×4 x 8’ Maple plank, as I might need a few pieces to cover ..oops items…. I had this glued up panel from Charles Neil….and there was a 5/4 slab in the stack.. It did have a crack that finally gave way. Not sure why it was stained, eith...

Works in progress #1: Coffee table #1

09-16-2017 08:43 PM by Stephen2017 | 0 comments »

I acquired some rough cut slabs down by Coos Bay OR. I started levelling/planing the first one and after seeing the grain and a little consultation looks like I have a beautiful slab of big leaf maple with all sorts of figure going on everywhere. I think this will make a great coffee table. So I’m planning on just smoothing it out, using turquoise inlay, and making the tables out of black walnut.

I refused to shell out 4k for a snap-On hutch for my tool box at work so I decided to make one just how I wanted it.

Shop stuff #103: Photo frame

08-30-2017 02:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Perhaps the longest title of any video I have made. It started out as a simple build, but, as is my habit, I complicate it a bit. There is also joinery that I was not completely satisfied with, although it did come out OK for my first attempt at a half lap mitre,so I did a “fix” to it. Sometimes accidents are a benefit. Lots of hand work, which I love doing, but sometimes the machines just have to come out. View on YouTube
