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...

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

Ran all four stiles through. Then ganged them up, after cutting a foot detail on one end.. #4 smooth plane was still out, u...

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...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #2: Out of the clamps..

09-08-2017 04:20 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, where was I? Got the two sides out of the clamps.. Side One.. Was trying to see IF I like the “flat” panel look….not..Side two. I think a Raised Panel look will just have to do… Which leaves the ends to make. Collection of planes were the ones being used. They need smaller stiles….made it a bit rough to use the 45….still had a 1×4 slab…I could make the grooves first, rip the part off the slab, and keep making parts. Too...

08-21-2017 01:19 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Again, more of a catching up…. Decided to try to add the plywood back to the case…..on a Monday? Usual stuff went on… I was just going to get a measurement on what size of a panel I needed to cut out of the 4’ x 4’ panel….was.. One thing led to another,,,,,had to lay the panel ON the dinning room table to mark out two lines needing cut….wound up outside on the patio, using a roll-around cooler as a bench, to saw the panel out….grrrrr ...

08-16-2017 04:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Always seem to be a fight during the first drawer build…..if it has been a while between builds… Ok, more of a catch up on how things are going….both on the thumb, and the project X-rays this morning show thumb has healed….been in the splint a bit too long….NOW I get to loosen it up to where it will bend like new, again….to do that, it was back to the shop today.. Ok, Drawers: Laid out a few drawer fronts… These were the “easy ones...
