Shop stuff #73: Sally's Coffee Table Part 10

01-26-2017 05:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I finally get to the end of the wood work and start finishing in this one. It is hard to believe there was so much to it. It was a long and challenging build and despite being very ruthless in cutting things out, there is still a ton of video. View on YouTube

Shop storage projects #15: A back for the case, and...

And a frame for the top gets a start. Well, the other night, I snuck back down to the shop, meaning merely take the clamps off, and put the clamps away…...wound up doing a bit more. Once the clamps were off, I flipped the case onto it’s front. I used one pipe clamp to hold it onto the top of the bench. Didn’t want it to fall off onto the floor… Slapped the sheet of plywood in place, and marked out where to try the cuts at. Cordless circular saw was just...

Miter Saw Stand from Reclaimed Wood

01-22-2017 12:21 AM by ShaunMeighan | 1 comment »

Hello all! So for this weekend’s project, I decided to make a handy stand for my miter saw. It’s very simple construction but it’s solid and does the job. I also added a trash bag on the inside to give the stand a second function. A third function is that the rails on the side can be used for clamp storage!In the future I will probably add castors to the base so that it can be easily moved around my small shop.Thanks!View on YouTube YouTube

Shop storage projects #12: Web-Frames, part 1

01-20-2017 02:51 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Mainly setting up jigs and stops..and more jigs. Had a lot of parts to make, and half of them had to look like this, on one end. The trick was how to get them all done…quickly.. This is what I needed to make…times 24. I had 12 short rails that needed a tenon on both ends. This one was done the old, slow way. Needed something a little bit faster, and..have them all match each other. I used the “prototype” to help set a couple stops on the mitre box.. mainly...

Shop storage projects #11: Dresser build: side #2 is done..

01-19-2017 04:35 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Plus a few other chores were started. Corner posts were hit with the stanley 45’s sash cutter.. First I needed to joint and edge, and flatten the sawn face. Then run the sash cutter a bit. Then some lay-out work I transferred rail locations from side #1 to these posts, I also found the angle to cut the bottom foot detail.. One was a hair off, took care of that later, time for a LOT of chisel work.. tools used, amongst of things. Square, a mallet, and a bandaid..Got...

Shop storage projects #10: That dresser build, side 2 rails are done...

01-17-2017 01:19 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, spent a bit over 2 hours in the shop today. Since the rails were all ready to go, might as well get them done. Still had the stanley 45 set up, so a lot of this type of work was done.. But, being a Monday, has having a problem with this set up. Not with the plane, but how I was holding the part to be planed….too many screw holes. Decided to address that problem.. Piece of 1×6 scrap, held flush with the top of the bench. Two screws to attach. Now, it doesnR...

After a few other items were taken care of. Got an early wake up call this morning. Seems one of the Shop Cats caught a small Black Bat. She even brought it upstairs to show off her catch….squeaking all the time….of course, the bat got away from her. Finally trapped the little critter under a broom. And with the help of the dust pan to hold the critter, I did a Catch & Release, right out the back door of the house. Last seen, the bat was flying west, as fast as it...

Shop storage projects #7: Working on the rails....

01-12-2017 11:40 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, last night, I snuck back to the shop…did a bit of chisel work. But wasn’t happy with the results.. And decided to “daylight” the mortise into a dado. I kept the waste piece, added some glue, and a clamp, and let it sit all night.. Then today, I removed the clamp, and worked on a few more dados. Nothing fancy to them, just a lot of chisel work.. laid out to match the tenon that will go here. Last night I had #4 and #3 done. This is for #2. Wide ch...

Shop storage projects #6: Working on the storage dresser

01-10-2017 07:58 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Muddle through a bit more with that Stanley #45…..wasn’t quite right. But.. I had these four to get done, somehow. Came up with the idea that IF I drilled a hole where the tenons will be, I could then attach the part to the side of the bench, so the fence wouldn’t hit anything along the way… needed to countersink for the screws. Tried a few more times with the 45… Things still weren’t quite right. Tenons were cut on the few blanks I did get ...

Shop storage projects #5: Dungeon Shop Remodel, Stage 3, and....

01-08-2017 10:24 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

A bit of woodworking, too. Was at a standstill on moving things around, decided to at least start on the chest of drawers build. I had an old pine 4×4 in the shop. Decided I could resaw it down for a few parts. Trying to get a few 4/4 by 2” wide blanks made up. Once those were resawn, I had to plane them smooth and square, well, at least ONE was done. I also set up a fancy plane, to do a bit of molding work on the now squared up blank… A Stanley No.45, with tha...
