Finger Joints, my way #1: Making finger joints....

03-09-2017 06:50 PM by bandit571 | 7 comments »

Also known as Box Joints. Not saying this is the “perfect” way to do these, but, this is how I do them. First off, I get the four sides all milled to size. Nice when they are the same width and thickness So, for this little “How to”, I have these Pine boards. I made them about 3/8” thick, and all are about 3-1/2” wide.Boards can be about any size, but they need to be close to the same size no matter how thick or wide they are. I start with t...

New Machine

03-01-2017 01:55 PM by mikeacg | 6 comments »

Got a new toy for the shop and have been spending my spare time learning how to use it so haven’t been as active on the forum as I’d like. The new machine is called SideWinder and was designed and built by a friend of mine, Gary Campbell, over in Marquette. (He’s quite active on CNC forums). It is a CNC machine that uses a Jet lathe and has 2 functions. It can be used a a CNC lathe or as a recoil (or the combination of both). This gives me the ability to turn stuff reall...

100 foot cabinet shop #3: Dust collection!? We don't need no steenkin' dust collection!

03-01-2017 02:50 AM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

Was cleaning out the saw and was impressed with how much dust accumulated even with a 4” line. The dust collector was not clogged but the saw dust simply doesn’t self cascade into the vac hole. So I had a thought that since the saw cabinet was filling anyway (and it holds a lot of dust), that perhaps I was wasting time/energy cycling the DC for every little saw cut. So I now don’t bother turning on the DC for the saw until I’m doing a cleanout. Discuss! M

Shop storage projects #22: Frame works, false fronts, and other mishaps.....

02-17-2017 02:11 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, trying to get caught up here. Had the sides done, and the drawer ready to be glued up. Needed to build some webframes to make this into a case to hold two drawers… First I set aside a blank to make a false front for the bottom drawer, to ensure it didn’t get resawn down to make a the frames… Caption says this is a tenon cutter. That is only half right, as I have to move the jig one more time.. To make these “dominoes”. When all were cut, I wou...

Shop storage projects #21: Need a dresser for chisels, starting up

02-13-2017 03:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Main dresser is done, and almost loaded up. A drawer I had found on the curb during Trash Day provides the start for the next little project. I had that old box of chisels, that needed a better place to hang out in.. This is the drawer I found. I separated the chisels into two groups. The Plastic handle crowd was laid out in the drawer, and some scrap pine was added as dividers.. I’ll finish nailing the dividers in place later. There is a place to stash a small chest of...

Honey locust bench. #1: The start of my outdoor bench.

02-08-2017 04:51 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...

Shop storage projects #19: Drawer #5, and a bit of Olde School

02-03-2017 02:59 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Didn’t want to bore anyone with the rest of the drawer building. Right now, there are 4 drawers sitting in the case, with a coat of Witch’s Brew as a finish of sorts.. Witch’s Brew is nothing more than an old quart can, into which any leftover stains and varnishes wind up. Instead of a shelf full of almost empty cans, I have just the one. Went i am ready to use the Brew, I top it off with enough BLO to mix things together. anyway, I worked off and on today, tryin...
