Saw Til #2: Moving day, crosscutting parts

04-11-2017 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Found a spot for the til to call “home” ....right on the end of the lathe bench…..first, a few things have to move out of the way. A B&D WorkMate was sitting in that spot, with a huge sander sitting on it…..got the sander moved elsewhere.. To the Power Tool Bench. Table is merely stowed for now, can place it where it is needed, later. Almost cleaned off workmate is in it’s new home…might even be able to USE it, now. Swept the floor a bit...

Trefoil How-to

04-10-2017 03:20 PM by BanjoBen | 9 comments »

I posted this project over the weekend and got several questions from people about it, so I thought I’d share some of the process in case anyone’s interested. You can find out more about where the object comes from here: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.314.4240and here:https://arxiv.org/abs/0811.0225Be warned….there’s math in them thar links! The process is pretty straightforward. To begin, I cut bars 1 inch x 1 inch, making sure they ...

Pine Table Project #4: Catching up, and a drawer made

04-02-2017 02:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Beginning to dislike hand cut half blind Dovetails…...PITA to do.. This is the second one I’ve ever done, without using an electric router and jig…..Maybe after a few more, I might get decent at these? Second side is out of the clamps, legs have their beads milled And stashed over with the first side. Dovetails are passable.. Ok, besides cleaning up a new plane I traded for, I did manage to make a drawer today. First, since I am done with the bead cutter, I cou...

Pine Table Project #3: Some assembly required..

03-30-2017 05:17 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, the cussing has begun…... Decided to mill a few tenons on the ends of the aprons…..Discovered I NEED the spur installed as soon as it gets here on my Stanley #45…..as I “Fired” the Wards #78 today. First off, I laid out for a tenon Didn’t want a tenon the full width of the 1×6, so.. Cut off a 3/4” x 3/4” square on each corner. At least there is less to work on….Got the Stanley made Wards #78 out of storage and star...

Pine Table Project #2: Rest of the legs and some aprons

03-29-2017 04:29 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...

Hidden figers joints? #2: Last two corners..

03-20-2017 12:35 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Might as well make a box out of this… Worked on finding better ways of doing this…bandsaw was used for a bit on some areas, to hog off some of the waste. I also used the 358 mitre box for some of the crosscuts. Laid out the fingers.. This was after I had cut the mitred ends. More of the handsaw work at a 45 degree cut. Marked out where the ends of the fingers would be, and cut the excess off. SHARP chisels to remove the waste to form “pockets” The b...

Hidden figers joints? #1: Have the first and second done..

03-17-2017 08:04 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

A friend decided that he wanted to see full blind finger joints done. So, I walked out of Lowes with a pair of Poplar 1×4 x 24” boards. Figured it would be a little easier than using my supply of 3/8” thick pine…. I cut one of the boards into a pair of 6” long “Ends” ( yep, making yet another box) and a 12” side. laid out for the end joints.. I do have just the saw to cut these to length.. This works better than the bandsaw, for...
