Shop stuff #106: No Lathe Chisel Handles

10-06-2017 01:17 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My first time ever using a draw knife. These are the first chisels I ever bought and the handles have given up on them. I don’t have a lathe, so you work with what you have and learn and have fun at the same time. My son has recently shown an interest in woodworking so these will be his first set of chisels.

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...

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...

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...

The first installment in this series of videos, cutting down and milling my own logs for lumber. I wanted to document the process from tree to finished product. Step one is complete, soon I will be making the second video on milling the log into rough cut boards. Stay tuned to the channel for the next videos in the series and watch on my journey to turn logs to lumber. https://youtu.be/c7ahlC_8H8s

Walnut & Cherry, new project #4: Lid work, and a sealcoat

09-12-2017 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Box is out of the clamps. Decided to build the lid as a frame & raised panel.. Did a bit of trading for a stick of Black Walnut. Crosscut to get a few parts. These for the raised panel.. needed this for a pair of long rails, and.. These two for the short rails.. Long rails were ripped into a matching pair….needed saw marks removed.. Next day. got the blank out of the clamps, and planed them flat.. Made a jig to hold the panel still.. While a pair of #4 plan...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #3: Stanley 45 time...

09-09-2017 01:53 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I have the Stanley 45 all set up….need to mill a few tongues on the end pieces.. Called a “Match” cutter, cuts a 3/16” wide tongue, for a tongue and groove joint… Fence sits below the cutter. As this were designed to mill up to 4/4 stock, a 3/4” thick piece will have a bit of overhang. I raised the depth stop up, out of the way, as the cutter has it’s own. I used this set up, to hold the end pieces still, long enough to mill the edg...
