Next Kitchen Project #6: face frame and a back

10-23-2018 05:32 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

had some time to kill, waiting on the Boss. Decided to fix the tablesaw, and see what I could get done…Hauled a plank to the shop….will be cut into parts for the face frame…first, the saw needed some work. Mitre guage isn’t the biggest…at least it doesn’t rattle around in the slot. Found a STRAIGHT scrap…attached it to the mitre gauge.. It has a pair of slots for screws. Strip was a bit long, so I ran the mitre gauge down both slots.. ...

Next Kitchen Project #5: A little assembly?

10-22-2018 09:45 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Needed to mill some rebates, get the second frame done….and buy some screws..Second frame, the one the drawer will be sliding on… Was glued up, spent most of the day waiting on the glue to cure…rebates? Set up the Stanley 45. Once I figured out which were the backs of the two side panels, I could mark where to put the rebate,,clamp each side panel to the side of the bench.. Mr. Stanley does NOT like knots, had to chisel a couple out of the way… Decided t...

10-21-2018 05:20 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

But, got a few things done. Had a Barn Sale to go check out….not so much for the old tools, but maybe get enough old Pine to help the build along…..1×10 x 8’ and a pair of 1×3 x 8’ pine boards…$15…. So..first task for today..after lunch, was to plop the sides onto the bench….and do a trim.. Almost just a slab….edge back by the tool well, was close enough of a match, that just a jointer plane would be needed….the edges cl...

10-19-2018 10:46 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok..side #1 came out of the clamps, today.. This may be the outside of the case..And this goes to the inside….Plan right now is to have both panels done, clamped together inside to inside face, and trim to final size….and a rebate for the back panel to sit in… Had three more boards to glue up….to make Panel #2.. Kind of gappy….We have ways.. Clamped to the bench….run a jack plane down the edge. I had a straight edge line drawn , so I could joi...

10-18-2018 11:34 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Was looking through the stash of Oak i brought home….this might be interesting… Maybe.. Hmmm? Not all was this fancy-schmanzy, though.. Good thing I’ll need some narrow parts…hauled a few to the shop.. These were for side panel #2..already had parts for #1 cut to length.. Already stashing cut-offs, for smaller parts.. Well, today..after tests at the local Hospital…and a nap….did a cardio workout.. This is about an hour’s worth&...

Built 26 years ago..started out as a 4 drawer chest of drawers….that got changed to a changing table, when our son was born….Instead of drawers, they became shelves…with doors…..later it was a Pantry….now just a catch-all….open those doors at your own risk…. Boss found a catalog ( uh-oh…) that had a p...

Ukulele #2: Binding and catchup

10-16-2018 07:51 AM by Fchilly | 5 comments »

After a cider or two I decided I had enough confidence for an attempt at the binding. I set up the trim router to cut about an 1/8×1/16 step for a Koa binding. I relied entirely on CA glue to attach this, and it turned out very nice. I havent decided what to use for the backside binding, but i’m considering a maple/koa/maple contrasting strip. I’ll keep my options wide open. The saddle and nut just arrived from amazon, this means I can continue on the neck and the bridge which I’m ...

Treadle Lathe #3: Cutting Joinery

10-11-2018 12:52 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Making progress on the lathe. In the last post, I laid out the ways (the horizontal boards that the head stock, tail stock and tool rest sit on) and in this episode I cut four tenons and two housing dados! This project is definitely taking longer than expected but I’m happy with the current progress and I’m confident it will be worth the effort. Working with oak has been a learning curve in comparison to pine. I can’t wait to be turning wood with a foot powered tool! I...
