Pine Pantry Cupboard #2: Webframes....

05-24-2017 07:33 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, part 2. Those 1xs with the sawn edges, they were smoothed out and jointed this morning….made a bit of a mess on the floor.. Wanted to get the parts as close to matching each other as i could. Laid out for some tenons to be cut on the ends of the short parts.. Again, I wanted all of these to match each other. Set up a jig on the bandsaw, and then reset for the rest of the cuts. That “thing” sitting beside the tenons? Is a mortise jig I use. Attached t...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #1: start up

05-23-2017 10:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, been awhile. Rescued some old 2×4s from the backyard, cut out the bad parts, and then resaw the rest.Was a few boards, but not what I needed for this project. Seems the Boss wants a larger Pantry cupboard….. Trip to Menards for a few boards. 4 1 x 8 x 6', 3 1×4 x 6’, and a pair of 1×10s by 6’. atched up the 1×8s and glued them up into two panels.. These will be the sides of the cupboard. The two skinny boards used to be one of th...

Hand Tool Shootout | Preparing Rough Sawn Lumber by Hand vs. the Machines

05-20-2017 06:06 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

My usual routine is somewhat hybrid, I typically do the bulk of the removal of material with the jointer and planer, then square it up at my cross cut sled, and finally remove the scallops from the planer with a smoothing plane, and shoot the ends to final dimensions to fit. But for the purpose of demonstration, I prepared these two overly dry (20 years in a barn) air dried Walnut by hand and then with my machines to see how long each process took. End of the day 7 minutes with the machin...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Venues #2: Video Interview with local reporter

04-24-2017 07:27 PM by Jerry | 37 comments »

As mentioned in my previous post, I had an interview with a local reporter, here’s the video, and for those of you wondering what I really look like now as opposed to my profile picture that was taken 33 years ago, here’s the sad truth. I forgot to mention earlier when I first posted this that all of the music playing in the background was done by me. View on YouTube

To Give is better than to Receive

04-24-2017 01:53 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...

Saw Til #2: Moving day, crosscutting parts

04-11-2017 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Found a spot for the til to call “home” ....right on the end of the lathe bench…..first, a few things have to move out of the way. A B&D WorkMate was sitting in that spot, with a huge sander sitting on it…..got the sander moved elsewhere.. To the Power Tool Bench. Table is merely stowed for now, can place it where it is needed, later. Almost cleaned off workmate is in it’s new home…might even be able to USE it, now. Swept the floor a bit...

Saw Til #1: From scraps to a til

04-10-2017 01:42 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well at least the start of one. Inventory after the Table build, showed a few decent enough boards sitting around.. Got to looking at all the saws in the shop, mostly hanging overheard from the Dungeon’s ceiling joists. Figured I could cobble a til out of some of the scraps. Had a 1×6 that seemed long enough for two sides, but it wasn’t quite wide enough….had a couple 1×4s. One of them needed jointed to make a glue joint. Offset the two 1×...
