Ok, time to get caught up with this thing.. Had two of these to do for the back apron Had two of these to chop out for the bottom rail of the drawer opening..

Pine Table Project #3: Some assembly required..

03-30-2017 05:17 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, the cussing has begun…... Decided to mill a few tenons on the ends of the aprons…..Discovered I NEED the spur installed as soon as it gets here on my Stanley #45…..as I “Fired” the Wards #78 today. First off, I laid out for a tenon Didn’t want a tenon the full width of the 1×6, so.. Cut off a 3/4” x 3/4” square on each corner. At least there is less to work on….Got the Stanley made Wards #78 out of storage and star...

Pine Table Project #2: Rest of the legs and some aprons

03-29-2017 04:29 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...

Hidden figers joints? #4: Getting about done

03-21-2017 11:39 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Spent most of the day working on this box. When I removed the clamps, I found one corner that hadn’t glued up… So, got out the glue, and a couple big clamps. Trickle the glue into the open joint, and crank the thing tight.. I also took a bit of time to clean the other end of the box up.. Block plane to level things a bit. Since this is the bottom of the box, it would be nice if it would sit flat.. Set up the Stanley 45… With a bead cutter….I think it...

Hidden figers joints? #2: Last two corners..

03-20-2017 12:35 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Might as well make a box out of this… Worked on finding better ways of doing this…bandsaw was used for a bit on some areas, to hog off some of the waste. I also used the 358 mitre box for some of the crosscuts. Laid out the fingers.. This was after I had cut the mitred ends. More of the handsaw work at a 45 degree cut. Marked out where the ends of the fingers would be, and cut the excess off. SHARP chisels to remove the waste to form “pockets” The b...

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...
