Shop stuff #108: Pencil box in walnut and maple

11-02-2017 09:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

A rainy day today and finally some time to edit video. This is a small pencil box I made for my daughter in law who is going back to school to learn how to help people. My first grand child was born to her 6 months ago and I wanted to make her something that was a bit more common in my time, yet still practical now. View on YouTube

Moravian Workbench #1: building myself a bench

10-26-2017 01:46 PM by Schade | 14 comments »

I’m finishing up a work bench I started about 8 months ago and thought I’d share my progress here, since I’ve learned and got inspired by the group here.The Tool Tray is Tiger Maple boxed by Sapele. The wedges in the stretchers are walnut. Since I’m a hobbyist, I worked on the bench when I got the time, or when I saved up for more materials. It’s a Moravian Work Bench with a leg and tail vise. The legs are made from Sapele and Hard Maple. The stretchers ar...

A little time off #1: Drills and things

10-26-2017 12:50 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Usually after most large projects, I take a day or two off from the shop. I may take about a week, this time around…. Rust Hunting around, finding a few extras for the shop…..a drill here, a saw there, maybe a couple planes…Drills? well, there are a few “eggbeaters” in the shop….may have to re-arrange things a bit, to get these all put away.. From a HUGE Millers Falls No. 2-01 down to a “Granite” single speeder…. Will try to h...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #3: Cleaning up main panel and distractions

10-22-2017 01:35 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Pulled the panel out of clamps yesterday after spending most of the day running around. Part of that time was spent picking up with stock which will become the legs. I had found a very rough piece of walnut, which I had a friend offer to clean up for me. When I stopped by to pick it up, he hadn’t gotten to it yet but was willing to take care of it then. So we blanked the pieces to ~20” and started jointing 2 sides perpendicular so we could square it up on the planer. Think a jointer migh...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #1: Dimensioning the panel pieces

10-19-2017 02:49 PM by Reinan | 2 comments »

Starting a new project for my recently married cousin and his lovely bride, who just got their first house. Figured a nice table as a Christmas/House-Warming present would be we received, as they are young and just starting out in life. I have the main panel/top pieces dimensioned to width, though not final length. The plan is to draw bore breadboard ends in walnut to frame the maple. Next step is making a few clamping caul sets to hold the panel flat while gluing. While I am worki...

A project in Maple #10: A chain and a brace for the lid

10-12-2017 05:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

A trip to Walmart…..bought a packet of chain & hooks…16’. Was the shortest they had. More for hanging a flower pot, but….I only needed a wee bit. Rest can still go to hang a flower pot…. Set the id opened to where it looked about right…eyeballed the length needed, and grabbed the bolt cutters to trim the chain to length. Two screws, set into pilot holes, to hold the chain….that was the “easy part”... So, how to hold th...

A project in Maple #9: Tray completed

10-10-2017 08:44 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Monday….got the sides glued up…..Traced the bottom panel, after the sides came back out of the clamps,,,bandsaw to remove the excess. Press fit into place. helped square the sides up…then just some nails, no glue, to hold the bottom in place.. Then used the tray to mark how far down to install the rails. Three screws each, no glue…then a tes drive.. Then the important part…does the lid close, without hitting the tray? Got to thinking, dangero...

A project in Maple #8: Hinges, rails, and dovetails

10-08-2017 08:12 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hinges I had bought for this project…looked a bit wimpy….needed something a bit …different. Some yard sale finds gave me a few hinges to try. One “leaf” was a bit too long, though. Grinder to remove the “excess” metal.. One is a before, the other three are after the grinder work. Sat the lid in the vise, laid out the locations for the hinges, drilled a few pilot holes…. Once all three were done, I set the lid aside, cleared a sp...

A project in Maple #7: a PIP, and a tray?

10-06-2017 11:18 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, catching up….trying to get this project done..sometime… Got this all sanded down to 120 grit…and added a coat of amber shellac…. Still needs to have the hinges installed…. All squared edges were rounded over, using a spokeshave, a block plane, and smoothed out with the sander..Hinges? Well…they did make it ON to the chest…in a way. The Maple 1×1 and the 1×4? The skinny one is to be a rail. The one by is to supply a...

A project in Maple #6: A bottom framed, a puppy died, a lid done...

10-01-2017 04:22 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Had a little 3 month old puppy in the house…..she came down sick the other day….the next morning she passed away, before we could even get her to the vet…..thinking something poisoned her out in the yard…. Ok, I wasn’t in a very good mood when I returned to the shop… Hammer and chisel to shape the feet a bit, to at least blend them together….Ripped a bunch of maple scraps into 1×1s…and made a frame of sorts.. To support the plywood...
