End Table project #3: Frame and panel work

07-26-2015 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, last time, I had a couple frames almost done. I went down to the shop a couple times today. Got the second large frame all joinered up. Then worked on the narrow end frame.. This is from laying out where the rails would go. First I had to trim them to length. Got out a mitresaw.. A little old school, but it works. Had a plain candle handy, and before most cuts, I’d rub the saw with the candle. Made sawing thos oak a breeze. Cut a few tenons with that same saw. h...

End Table project #2: Mortise and tenon time

07-24-2015 03:41 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, at least enough to put ONE frame together. Had the five parts for the one side laid out. “Plan” was to mill a few tenons, then chop a few mortises to match. Got a few tenons done, before the insurance guys showed up. Spent maybe an hour talking things over with them, and the landlord. Anyway, about them tenons.. Needed a few tools. laid out 1” wide tenons. Simple to do, as the blade on the square is 1” wide. Marked all the way around the ends....

End Table project #1: End Table Project: Start up

07-22-2015 07:33 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Have a stack of White Oak planks to molest. Boss said she wants a new end table. Bottom is enclosed Has a doorTop squared off So, with that set points and a couple trips with the tape measure, it is off to the Dungeon shop:Took along ONE plank for this trip. Me and stairs are not on the best of speaking terms right now, so minimum loads going down the steps works best. Plank was 9” wide, by 63” long, by 7/8” thick. Figured I could get the top out of it. Cro...

TABLESAW RESAWING JIG ADAPTED FROM CHARLES NEIL’S RESAWING DVD. I am in the process of preparing lumber that I’m getting from nature!

Charles demonstrated resawing techniques using a tablesaw and the bandsaw.The jig presented here is made up of available shop materials. I used MDF because I had it as well as three-quarter inch, fir plywood. What you see is the assembled jig. The ji...

Getting my tools ready #22: ROUGH CUT STRAIGHTEDGE CUTTING JIG WITH KNOBS II (THE NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION!)

07-06-2015 05:40 PM by DocSavage45 | 27 comments »

ROUGH CUT STRAIGHTEDGE CUTTING JIG WITH KNOBS II (THE NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION!) This is the bottom of the straightedge cutting jig. It is made from the material available on the shop, half-inch plywood. You can see the hardwood rail for tracking the jig. It is smaller than the last one because that’s all I had. LOL! This board is wider than the last to accommodate wider slabs of wood. The original version was not able to handle more than 8 inches in width. The wider hol...

Well, last time, I had the four sides about together. Clamped them up into a box like shape As I needed some more layout work done. Had a 2’ x2’ sheet of 1/4” Oak plywood to try to cut into a bottom And, in theory, I could just measure the two directions and mark things out…..in theory yes, in this shop….Nope. Measured three times, laid out the lines, cut leaving the lines….1” off on the front to back measure? Ok, We’ll deal with th...
