Underway again...finally #11: Pro Football day - some progress in wood and football

11-20-2017 12:51 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Let’s get the “big deal” out of the way first. After a shaky first 3 quarters, we pulled it out in the last couple of minutes. My team now has 8 wins in a row! Geaux Saints! Whew. With that taken care of, I did a bit of work both before and after the game. Before the game, I worked on strengthening the table saw stand and raising its height to what it should have been yesterday. Nothing major skill-wise. Just the usual “do and re-do” process for me as I futz m...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Aprons and Legs

11-16-2017 02:15 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Guess I forgot to post this one, my progress last week on the table base. Using my shop made taper jig, I tapered the insides of all 4 legs and started cutting the cross laps in the aprons where they meet in the legs, everything went very well, aprons squared up nicely and fit the legs well. I’m happy with how sturdy everything ended up, almost no movement in any direction even in dry fit. I am waiting to glue it until I decide how I will slot the inside face of the apron for the table top...

Underway again...finally #8: Actually made cuts today

11-08-2017 01:13 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Yes, you read the title correctly. I actually made cuts today. After examining the smallest/shortest of 4 palletized plywood pieces, I decided to experiment with it – why gamble with the biggest, right? We’ll jump to the end of day pic first to provide context for the rest of the entry.Okay, so that’s where I wound up…the mockup is upside down though. The red arrows show fork lift tine cutouts in 2×4’s that I decided to “salvage” by filling th...

A little time off #4: Dovetails cleaned up, lid is done..

11-07-2017 04:31 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And even a PIP!Dovetails were planed down flush with the sides… Once all the corners and edges looked good, I could set up the Stanley 45 as a bead cutter.. As I wanted a pair of beads run all the way around… Started on the ends first, then the sides, reset the fence a bit, and go around again.. Beads had to be low enough for a sliding lid..saw cuts were made.. Down to the top of the bead. mitre cuts on one end, then a plunge cut the split off a “handle̶...

A little time off #2: Back to work, a box from Poplar scraps

11-03-2017 05:24 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, had a few scraps of Poplar, just sitting around, getting in the way Trimmed a few down, to see IF I could make a box out of them… Laid out some tools, to make a few dovetails.. Just the Usual Suspects….Laid out some pins, since I do pins first.. Went to set up the Shop Stool, so I could sit while I work… This is where it normally sits at, when I am running a saw.. This time, the welds on the stool decided to gave way…..had to saw the first set sta...

Shop stuff #108: Pencil box in walnut and maple

11-02-2017 09:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

A rainy day today and finally some time to edit video. This is a small pencil box I made for my daughter in law who is going back to school to learn how to help people. My first grand child was born to her 6 months ago and I wanted to make her something that was a bit more common in my time, yet still practical now. View on YouTube

A project in Maple #3: Another glue up, with problems

09-24-2017 02:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Thought I could get another glue up done….. Like before, I milled a few tenons. Shoulder cuts on the mitre box, cheek cuts on the bandsaw. That shoulder plane helped tune a couple tenons… Got out the old mortise jig….It was set up for these 3/4” thick rails. Chopped the center mortises in the rails…stiles are 4/4 thick, had to re-adjust the jig…..to chop a few mortises… BTW, Dog holes are an excellent way to keep chisels from rolling of...

Charging Station for my Cordless Tools

09-18-2017 02:48 PM by Thumper2004 | 0 comments »

So I started a while back in designing a new charging station/Tool Storage for my various cordless tools. I was able to continue work on this as I had already cut and assembled the hanger portions. There is still quite a bit to go so it may take a while with life happening. Thanks for checking it out. I can post plans for this if requested.

Walnut & Cherry, new project #4: Lid work, and a sealcoat

09-12-2017 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Box is out of the clamps. Decided to build the lid as a frame & raised panel.. Did a bit of trading for a stick of Black Walnut. Crosscut to get a few parts. These for the raised panel.. needed this for a pair of long rails, and.. These two for the short rails.. Long rails were ripped into a matching pair….needed saw marks removed.. Next day. got the blank out of the clamps, and planed them flat.. Made a jig to hold the panel still.. While a pair of #4 plan...
