Stepback Cupboard in Pine #18: Last drawer and aPIP

03-26-2018 02:02 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just getting caught up….had a few health issues over the weekend… Had a blank for the skinny drawer’s front, cut and fitted to the opening..needed to rip a board down to make it, and these three parts… And, with my usual luck..the two side pieces were 3/4” too short….made do, anyway… Front gets through dovetails, to match the other drawer. Saw a few lines.. Chop about half of one side’s pins, flip the board over, and pop the rest ou...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #17: Build a door

03-21-2018 09:57 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trip to the Blue Borg….wound up with a pair of CLEAR 1×6 x 4’ boards….Got those cut to length….had to rip the fancy boards to remove a couple bad knots.. Both boards had a knot like this….Figured out how wide I needed for the panel…made a couple rip cuts. Has more waves than the N. Korean Cheer Squad….We have ways.. Also cleaned up the edges on the “new” boards, was finally able to glue up a panel.. I also cut grooves i...

Shaker Style Table

03-20-2018 12:58 AM by wrenchhead | 4 comments »

I made this tapered leg table to have a place to work, study and edit. The top is made of Sapele and the base is maple finished with milk paint. It was a fun project using a variety of machines and hand tools. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNId8i-sS3o

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #16: Catching up,2....case done, door start

03-19-2018 02:47 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, face frame out of the clamps. Stuck against the case, to mark out where to put a few screw holes at… These two came out, once the frame was laying on the bench.. Scratch awl to make a starter hole for the 3/8” forstner bit. Then drill a pilot hole.. Once all the holes were done, I moved the frame off the bench, and placed the case on the bench…Had an extra hole to fill. It just gets a counter sink. Bead of glue run around where the frame meets the case...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #15: Bookcase, face frame and top

03-19-2018 02:01 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to get caught up here…Face frame: Stanley 45 and a #22 bead cutter.. Two cuts to make the outside corner, a single for the inside edges…The top rail only got one bead. Fancy cuts, to produce a tenon, once I got sizes figured out.. Then made a few cuts into the stiles… And made a few mortises.. Top one was easy. the one for the bottom rail? I had to get things fine tuned, for the beads to line up just right Spread some glue, add some clamps.. ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #14: Bookcase started

03-15-2018 10:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, Those two longer sides, needed a rebate added to them. Once I figured out which was the “inside” “top”, Back and bottom and have both match….Clamped one side into the vise on the bench.. Checked the Wards 78 to see how it was set up.. Might be about right? full length shaving. Got both rebates done.. This will “house” the plywood back panel… Time to lay out for a few sliding dovetails… Used a book to set the sp...

Workshop redo #1: I Have a Terrible Habit

03-14-2018 11:38 PM by DJL1031 | 0 comments »

I am away from my home today. Away from the sawdust, smell of fresh cut cherry and paper thin ribbons of excess wood on my shop floor. I will not be dusting off my pants and shirt at 130 or 200AM. I will make no progress on the several projects that I have going on, both in and out of the shop. The time away has given me a chance to reflect on this short week and plan for my homecoming. That is when I plan on finishing my workbench replacement….. for about the third time in as many quar...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #13: Drawer installed, plugs and other adventures

03-13-2018 11:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got the clamps off the drawer….needed to clean up the dovetails a bit. One place I could not get to when all those clamps were in the way..was along the back edge of the drawer’s bottom. Large square to mark a line, roughly centered on the drawer’s back….added a few screws.. Should hold things in place. Drawer front had a huge knot in it… Drilled a hole for a bolt. Then laid out the same location at the other end of the drawer front, so these match...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #12: Build-a-drawer, 101

03-11-2018 08:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

two days to build one drawer? I am getting slow in my old age… Anyway, this may be a bit long, better get settled in…. Cut this to size..goal being to build a drawer around it. Had a couple “left-overs” for the sides, they needed to match in width and length…Length was at the bandsaw, later the mitre box. width was the easy part. Then “shot” the end grain straight..Set the sides aside for a bit. Corner joints will be through dovetails&...
