Cherry Box of squares #4: Glue-ups

11-14-2016 10:52 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Dryfit came out decent enough…. Somehow missed that one side was a hair shorter than the opposite side. Will just have to deal with that. Got to the point I could spread some Elmer’s around… Somewhere, in the midst of that forest of clamps is a box…...let it side for a day….. Ok, today the clamps came off, wore me out just doing that…..Decided to clean things up a t bit.. Set the box in the vise. Any holes got a dribble of glue, and a pi...

Cherry Box of squares #3: Dovetails and grooves

11-09-2016 07:47 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, camera issues, and a knee acting up. Might as well sit here and blog a bit? Laid out a few toys… Normal stuff for doing dovetails around here. That dovetail bit? I use that to set the angles, and then the spacings. There is a Disston #4 backsaw, filed rip, a couple chisels, that Kobalt knife ( needs a new blade) a few sharp pencils. Layouts. I set up a few boards, label the ends to match each other. Since all marks are to be on the INSIDE of the box. I also marked...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #3: Bandsaw Jig to Cut Log Slices / Christmas Ornaments

11-08-2016 10:44 AM by Humus Workshop | 2 comments »

Hi everyone, a few weeks ago a friend asked me these slices to use as Christmas ornaments and I took the opportunity to release the laser machine. So far I had cut the logs by freehand but this jig is very handy and works very well. Hope make more jigs for the bandsaw in the future because is very handy to save money in blades. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/dKV1M2XVJ2s Thanks for watching and be loving!

Cherry Box of squares #2: Maybe a glue-up?

11-08-2016 02:21 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I had a stash of lighter coloured wood to milled into a panel for a lid.. Got most of these resawn down to around..1/2” thick. Had to surface a few to get close to that size. Jointed all the edges. Those beads on the boards? I ripped those off, as I can always make a new bead. Crosscut to almost the same length…..width was coming up a bit too narrow. Found a piece of cherryand jointed it to fit. Might as well put it into the center of the panel? Ok, Nor...

Cherry Box of squares #1: Starting up, resaws

11-08-2016 01:52 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Have an older box. Until recently, it held some of the auger bits in the shop. Box has seen better days, though. I had thought to store some squares and bevel gauges in it, but.. The bottom panel had blown out the sides. The lid had shrunk. Just wasn’t enough room for these to fit in there… Well, I could see about building a new box. Had some leftovers from another box build.. Mainly Cherry, there is some sap wood-like stuff there as well, whether it is Cherry,...

Pine Auger bit box #7: Lid work

10-28-2016 12:06 AM by bandit571 | 11 comments »

The blank came out of the clamps today. Marked it for the size of the box, trying to get as much of an old knot cut off as I could. One part of the blank was a bit fatter than the other.. Sanding that down would have taken too much time and sandpaper.. we have ways.. After drilling a pair of new dog holes, on a center line from the vise…I used a Stanley #5c with a cambered iron. Going across the grain, didn’t take all that long to get close to flat. Then turn the bla...

Pine Auger bit box #6: Page #3 in the clamps....finally

10-25-2016 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, some fellow named Gumption finally found where I was hiding out, so, off to the shop I went. I had that Stanley #45 set up as a “Hollows” plane. Yes, Stanley made cutters like this…...IF you can find, and even afford them. Anyway, started milling the rest of the grooves… Groove #2…fighting the grain, still Groove #3….I needed the cam rest, as I was out in the middle of nowhere. I was also no longer fighting the grain. Had to turn the bl...

Pine Auger bit box #5: Updates..

10-24-2016 02:24 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Been busy at times, other times I been playing Hooky from the shop. Just to catch up as to where I’m at on this project… Holder #2 was glued up, and the blanks for two others as well… Have those out of the clamps now. Sanded down, and hinges installed.. Next holder has been cut to size, and flattened out. But when I got the rest of the bits out, I found I had a few more than I thought. Both holders are full, and I still have all of those bit? The BIG a...

Pine Auger bit box #4: Page two.

10-20-2016 01:56 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Since this is supposed to open like a large book. Back page has been finished up. I placed a blank in the clamps this morning for the second page. Added the outsides on the bottom page.. Only need three pieces, this time. Page one did need some slots made, though.. Because there needed to be a way to lift a bit up out of the holder. Backsaw to define the slot. chisel to chop it out.. Then marked the side pieces for height, and saw them to size. Had to keep track of which se...

Pine Auger bit box #3: Holder #1, test drive

10-18-2016 12:04 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Not too sure I like how it is going. Played hooky today, tomorrow I find out about my version of Big Ben’s Knee. Got pretty worn out trying to get ONE holder done. Block was short in length by..~1/8-1/4”....have that fixed. These are the bits I am trying to build a holder for….and, These are the drills I thought I’d use to make the holder.. First hole wasn’t that great. I tried holding the block at a 45 degree angle in the vise. Bit followed th...
