Workbench Build #24: Getting Ready To Cut Some Dovetails..

450 days ago by Airframer | 12 comments »

Ok, so I got a little distracted with getting my hand plane assortment ready for work. I still have a couple more to go and another on the way but as it sits now I have a fully functional selection of old Stanleys that should get me wherever I need to go with them. Now as I sit here preparing to cut my first ever dovetails (seriously have never done this before) I need to get my saws in order. I have been putting off sharpening these for a while now and it is time I gave them some a...

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

454 days ago by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

From log to box in less than a month #1: The kickoff

458 days ago by sras | 12 comments »

A friend at my church made me an offer: ”I’ll give you some wood if you’ll build something with it for the youth auction at the church” He made the offer several weeks ago, but I didn’t get around to picking up the wood until last Sunday! That gives me just under 4 weeks to take the wood, figure out a project, build it and finish it. That should be plenty of time, but my projects typically take months or years ! After pondering my choices, I picked these...

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

468 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

468 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

468 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

469 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

471 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

477 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...
