From cut-offs to.... #3: top is done, tenons as well

Still sore today, decided to try to get something done Like a few bevels?The other end grain bevel was done like the first one….also used a different #4.. A #4c model….Made in England.. Cuts a might deeper than the other Stanley #4 I have….Used the Millers Falls to get things close, then the final work done with the #4. Ok, ends are done, next was the long sides… This time, it was more of holding the plane at a”skew” and going along un...

From cut-offs to.... #1: Legs

06-13-2018 03:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, everyone has a bin for cut-offs and other scraps….never really find a use for them, right? From the Bed Frame Project…I was left with a lot of little pieces,,,and a bunch of shavings…most went out to the burn pit, to smoke away the skeeters…..I was left with these three things, way too big to burn.. 2×10 x 18” and one a tad longer. Was big enough, I had to clean the bench completely off… Amazing how fast a tool well fills up…I even...

Daves Workshop #24: Filling a hole in a medicine cabinet and refinishing it.

06-10-2018 01:41 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

I was trying to protect the wallpaper in the bathroom, so I opted to remove the medicine cabinets. One came out easy, the other had a screw the installer had stripped the head, and honestly, it just wasn’t coming out. I had to use a plug cutter to get the cabinet out of the wall…. So I went ahead and plugged it as the cabinet iwas to be painted… https://youtu.be/2FWZdVOvJNM

Outside corner on each leg also got a bead detail…Laid out for the mortise..Gather up the tools to chop the hole.. test fit the tenon.. Until all parts could be dry fitted together. Top got “rounded” And set aside….after a glue up.. Found the flattest spot in the shop’s floor, and go...

05-31-2018 07:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Bedframe is completed, installed, posted….Boss approved…soooo, I can get back to that little table? Since this thing was still out, I cut the bad sections out of the 1×4s..enough “good” was left.. To make two short and two long blanks….set these out of the way, for now. That 2×10 under them? may have a used for it, on another project…right now it is in the way…clamps came off the top…ran a plane along all four edges.. Which...

Simple Bedside Table #1: Started up

05-31-2018 07:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Wanted something to do, while I was waiting on parts for that bedframe project…While picking up lumber for the bed, I also picked a 1×10 x 4’, and a couple 1×4 x 4’ boards….just Pine, cheap ones from Menard’s….had to dig through and find the best in the bin…. Which left the problem of legs for the table….table didn’t NEED to be all that tall…..had a chunk of 2×10, about 29” long…..nasty mess in the cente...

Bottled sawdust

05-29-2018 10:02 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 6 comments »

Boys and girls, I just finished watching another one of those videos where the author advises the use of sawdust in the glue squeeze out to create that seamless join especially when you finish up using a zig saw instead of the zag saw… GREAT TIP! Now if you are like me, there is never enough time to finish clamping before the glue starts to set, let alone go foraging for enough sawdust to mix into the squeeze out/gaps… and sometimes I have craters. If you are a clean freak… OOPS, the s...

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdgtdxMRqok
