Maple Frame & Panel Box #6: Assembled....and a forest of clamps

08-07-2018 02:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ends came out of the clamps…..test fits….weren’t that great. Decided not to cut a groove across the ends, just a notch in the bottom panel will do. Had to use a bunch of clamps, to get this thing together….one corner wasn’t going to line up….either the groove was off, or the tongue was… This was just the start of the follies…needed to add a couple cauls, to pull the ends into square…. More clamps. one on each end..Then, no...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #5: Ends are made

08-05-2018 02:18 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first..the front and back frames came out of the clamps…..not quite perfectly matched…we have ways Clamped together, back to back. Ran the #3c plane around, until they are matched up.. Set these aside, for now. Have the four corner blocks for the end frames to do….cut them all to the final length on the mite box. Gang them up into the vise, and try to get them all the same size.. One of them was having “issues”. Had a bit of trouble with i...

Big cabinet for the new home #6: Its done! Wrap up, "Once you go black......"

08-03-2018 04:51 PM by Lalen | 6 comments »

Spread over three months, this thing is finally done. Quite the adventure and I learned a lot. Just wanted to share some final in-use pictures and thank those who gave input. One bit of feedback early on led me to the change of the doors from 6 top to bottom to 12 with a small upper and a lower door. I also put 3 hinges on the lower door to ensure it is well supported over time. (middle one is off center so it won’t interfere with the shelf.) For those who expressed interest in ...

Mainly than #12 groove cutter. The 1/4” Tongue cutter will come later….had to make sure they matched each other.. Don’t need the spurs….going with the grain….rotated these up, out of the way….long rods are held in the vise… Alw...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #2: Cutting parts for the frames

08-02-2018 10:16 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got that panel up of the clamps…and out of my way…. This is what the “Plan” looks like…but nothing is set in stone….have to adapt to what sizes I have on hand.. Made a “cut list” of sorts…it said I needed 4 pieces @ 3/4×1-1/2×8-1/2” so those were milled.. It also said I needed 4 pieces @ 3/4” x 1” x 8-1/2”.....so milled those up…..then things got….changed..List called for 4 pieces, t...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #1: A start up

08-01-2018 04:36 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Have a large pile of Maple, and other hardwood scraps in the shop. Don’t really want to burn them….maybe a bit of resaw work….and wind up with a Frame & Panel Box/ Mini Chest? May make it similar to a Walnut & Cherry box I made a long while back. First, need to resaw some of the chunks down a bit.. Part of the stash. Bandsaw has a 1/4” blade on it.. While it is less stress on the saw, with the replacement motor, at least it is sharper than this ...

Chest of Pine Drawers #14: Last of the dovetails are done

07-21-2018 03:09 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still need to buy a board for the back of the drawer. Needed to clear off the bench, first.. The shavings are from sizing the front of the drawer. Still needed a couple more “swipes” for the final fit..laterEven cleaned the floor, BEFORE I got started….still had to clean it a few more times. Got moving around just after 2pm in the shop. First, the drawer front needed a groove milled. Benchdog at one end.. A jig to keep the board from sliding around...

Chest of Pine Drawers #13: A second drawer is done

07-20-2018 03:36 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just one more to do.Got busy yesterday….rest of the dovetails for the (NOW) top drawer were done. Had an issue with a knot right where the dado was going through… Was a bit rough on the Stanley #39. Mitre saw wasn’t cutting the walls level..was hard to see the far side.Got out a panel saw, to level the cuts.. The knot didn’t bother this saw a bit. First drawer seemed to like the middle opening better.. So the second drawer made is now the Top Drawer. ...

Chest of Pine Drawers #12: one drawer fitted, another begun

07-19-2018 02:08 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got the first drawer out of the clamps yesterday…..planes and the beltsander to clean things up. Had to keep working on the sides…drawer was binding a bit….finally got it to almost close….wax on the moving parts helped with that last inch….added a pair of knobs, so I could at least pull the drawer back out… Hauled both 1×8 planks to the shop. Circular saw to cut out the very bad spots…. A regular Knot Farm. Somehow managed to get en...

Chest of Pine Drawers #11: Dovetails?

07-18-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ah yes, the old debate….Tails first..vs..Pins first…...Dungeon Shop goes Pins first. So.. My bevel square. There is a small combo square laying there as well. bevel is set to the angle I use for dovetails(need to write it down, sometime..) Where the groove comes through, one side of the pin is straight. Covers the groove. Then I work from each edge towards the center, laying out a few pins. had two backsaws to use, one was the “Veteran” and the other was...
