Miter Saw / Multi Use Station #3: Tying the Cabinets together

447 days ago by izod | 3 comments »

A few weeks have passed since i initially glued up the counter tops. Now it was time to start building the base and tying the cabinets together. My dad offered to come over for a day and help with anything i needed and i couldn’t say no to that! We planed and ripped all the boards to give it a new fresh edge and dress things up a little. First we attached a cleat to each side of the cabinet and used some lag bolts for a secure hold.We initially thought about using plywood to tether ...

Miter Saw / Multi Use Station #2: Table Top

447 days ago by izod | 0 comments »

The weekend of the 16th my dad and uncle came through as we all were heading up to the Twin Cities to hang out with my brother for weekend and take on a Timber wolves game. The timing was pretty much perfect and I had them help me glue up the 3/4” industrial grade particle board. The counter top on the left was glued up at 8’ and the right side was 4’ long, both 30.5” wide . I didn’t use any clamps, just screws about every foot along the sides and then down th...

Stanley Miter Box Restoration #2: Rust be Gone

448 days ago by ToddMKS | 1 comment »

I have taken the handle off the saw, hit it with a wire brush to remove any loose rust, and coated it with Navel Jelly. This is the first time I have used it and I have to say I like it alot. I have to give the saw one more coat to remove any stubborn rust left. Then I will start wet sanding it. Thanks for looking and please leave a comment with any advice you my have since this is my first saw rehab. Thanks again.

Stanley Miter Box Restoration #1: The Project Start

449 days ago by ToddMKS | 2 comments »

I picked up a Stanley Miter Box no. 346 at a swap meet this past weekend for $15. As you can see it is in pretty bad shape. The saw blade is completely rusted, the handle is in good shape. I can see some markings on the blade but cannot make them out. I will be taking the saw apart and coating it with Navel Jelly to remove the rust. I will be leaving the handle as is, I like the look. More to follow.

Vermont Lap Desk, part two

450 days ago by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, hand is healed up, for now. Got out a handsaw and trimmed things to length. Someone asked about making dovetails for the corners? Had to rearrange the bench a bit, first. That yellow Miter Box was moved around to the front of the corner of the bench. Cleaned off an area in front of it, as well. Laid out for a few cuts Had to add some bits of scrap wood to the miter box, to get rid of any flex. C-clamp to hold things in place. Tried a coping saw at first. Hurt ...

Base cabinet for pipe smoking cabinet #1: Putting plans together

456 days ago by BobInMidland | 1 comment »

My first project that I have posted is a 24×6x24 pipe smoking cabinet that holds (36) pipes. As shown below: Now its time to start on the base unit. I need storage for my pipe tobacco which is stored in a number of different sized and shaped containers. Mason jars of different sizes, round or square metal tins, gasket-lid jars, etc… That can be accomplished rather easily, I would think, with standard fixed or adjustable shelving. I also need storage for pipe cleaners, li...

Lamps for the living room #2: Coming together

458 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

It has been a bit of a bother to find time for woodworking. I found some today and managed to put in a few hours. Today was about fitting the sides of the lamps to the side edges. Although I got all the I made progress on both lamps but I only got one assembled up to this point. I am going very slow on this so I can enjoy what I’m making. For starters, I added one coat of tung oil before starting the glue up. The glue joints don’t have any tung oil on them so thery are good...

Lamps for the living room #1: Decent Start

475 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

I have been building some lamps for the Living room. I discovered an issue. My small miter saw used to be as accurate as anything else I could manage. I didn’t realize that the fence had warped until I started assembling. My 45 angles wer more like 45.75. It threw a wrench in things and gave me a little firewood but I recovered most of the cuts. I’m ready to move on. I was able to straigten the fence on the small saw but now I’m marking my cuts and disregardng the presets...
