A “Smart Phone” goes stupid…Computer goes on a brain fart trip ( computer LSD??) Order and PAY for a single heater insert, and two show up at the house?

Took a couple trips to the shop, to get set up, and do a bit of assembly…..Couple drills needed to go downstairs, a E-Cord reel needed to go along with them. And the Camera.. Cord reel, b...

Shop stuff #136: Roubo build part 7

09-22-2018 02:44 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Although I am spending all my time renovating the bathroom, I still have footage to edit of the Roubo bench build. This short one is getting the top built up to a thicker dimension because, well, that’s what I want. A bit of work and a lot of clamps. I really need more clamps, and better ones too. What a strange thing for a woodworker to say….lol. View on YouTube

That OddLots Ad #16: a top gets glued up

09-21-2018 10:34 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Going to be a big one, tooHad the three blanks about the right size..edges needed some work, though.. Plane is a Stanley No. 8….10 pounds..24” long…planks are 57-3/4” long. Far end is jammed into the bench’s Crochet..there is barely enough room between the near end, and the washer behind me. One edge jointed, then another, check for gaps.. Wider of these two will be the “front” edge of the top…had both edges to joint…made a lot o...

Managed to get it over to the case…and clamped it to one end…case is a hair out of square…. Plan now is to screw one end into place where it is supposed to go….and work towards t...

Couple hours here, a couple there….Left side of the frame needed tuned up…to match the right side.. Got these joints fitting a little better….. Takes most of these tools, to fit the joints up….lot of flattening to do… The next trip to the shop..left side was tuned up. Both of the middle rails/stiles were also done…which left the curved center piece to do. Three nails, and a thin piece of plywood, mark out a fair curve…then cut that on the...

Coffee Table With Storage For Puzzles And Board Games

09-14-2018 02:48 AM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I built this coffee table for my wife. She likes to put together puzzles and usually takes over the dining room table for a week or so. Now she can take the top off the coffee table, work on the puzzle for a while and put the lid on until she has time to come back to it. I made the table out of poplar and used General Finishes Java gel stain and Arm-R-Seal to finish it up. I am pretty happy with the results although I might buff out the top with steel wool in a couple weeks after it fully har...

That OddLots Ad #10: A tale of three tasks to do

09-14-2018 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I set myself three jobs to do today…the second end panel needed a rebate made, to house the plywood back. Once that was done ( task #1) I could install both end panels onto the “mainframes”, and get rid of the clamps holding things together. (Task #2) and finally, needed to build a pair of frames to use with a drawer, and install those (task#3)........Got the rebate milled.. Unclamped the panel, set it in the leg vise, use the Wards (Stanley)#78 to plane the rebate&...
