Hand Tool Journey #23: Carvers Vise #2

243 days ago by Airframer | 6 comments »

Late last night I ended with some small boards getting glued into larger boards. Well this morning while the little guy was sleeping I was able to get those out of the clamps and start getting them to final dimensions. I purposefully made the glue ups larger than needed to I can trim them to size and make up for any irregularities encountered during the glueup. First order was to simply clean them up 4 square.. Then I ripped the sides to get to final width (did a little of...

Hand Tool Journey #22: Carvers Vise #1

243 days ago by Airframer | 11 comments »

This is something I have been planning on building for a few months now. I have been putting it to the side until today when I realized I could really use it right now for my layout swap item. While I was building my workbench I was searching the net for vises just to get some ideas and inspiration for the ones on the bench and I came across the Benchcrafted Carvers Vise. It looked pretty nifty but like many of their products I simply cannot justify the price when it can be made fr...

Shoe Shine Box #3: A Few Additions

244 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 1 comment »

Slow progress today. I had to do emergency surgery on the Shopsmith Mark V – the lower gear ratio mechanism decided to start grinding on the motor. So I was only able to finish cutting the dovetails on the side panels and the rabbets for the top and bottom. The stopped dados will have to wait until later. Oh … and I finished the removable shelf.

Shuffling (Everyday I'm) #3: Short amount

244 days ago by T. D. Reid | 0 comments »

I got about an hour in the shop today; enough time square of the bottom ends of the legs, drawer backs and sides as well as cut out six drawer fronts to the night stands. The really big thing that I did was get down of the shelf the Leigh Dove tail jig where it has been collecting dust. I have never used it and for some reason I am scared to death of that thing. The unknown sucks! I brought the whole damn thing into the house and tomorrow morning while I’m waiting for the family to wake...

Shuffling (Everyday I'm) #2: Its as easy to build three at one time as it is to build one

245 days ago by T. D. Reid | 1 comment »

Today I found the time to cut the tops and shelves for all three night stands to size as well as glue up all 12 legs. I will try to get into the shop tomorrow afternoon and cut the legs to length and lay out the joint locations. Here are the pictures that I promised in my blog. Cheers

Shuffling (Everyday I'm) #1: Hoarders of cut offs

246 days ago by T. D. Reid | 0 comments »

Well I took the day off yesterday from the three A&C style night stands I’m building to do a little clean up of cut offs I had laying around (two bins 15”W x 36”L x 24”T). I cut them all off at 12” long and not more than 3” wide so I can use them in the wood stove at the cabin. I also needing to organize the bigger pieces of scraps that are usable. You know the stuff that if it was in our house it we would be on that hoarders show. Its tuff to throw out...

Shoe Shine Box #1: Glue-Up and Dimensioning

250 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 3 comments »

Time to see if I can do two projects at once. I started work on a shoe shine box today. Sometimes I am thankful that I can have awesome wood with which to work. I threw a little denatured alcohol on it to get an idea of what it will look like. I glued up the panels and dimensioned the external pieces.

Texas Tech Pool Cue Rack #1: Design

252 days ago by ConstructionBoss | 2 comments »

My Brother-in-Law has a pool table in his condo and every time we go over there, the pool cues are laying on a table or on the bar chairs. He also has a table top to convert it to a ping pong, or in their case beer pong table, so the accessories need a place to go. After our last visit, I told my wife maybe I should make him a pool cue rack for Christmas. She liked the idea, but as with anything, I needed to make sure I had her buy in before pumping something out that she might not like. ...

Easy made Router Plane from a pallet

255 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have been looking at getting a router plane for some time now. Ebay has great deals, but if you know me you know I like making my own tools. In this video I make my own router plane using a piece of oak pallet, a thumbscrew, wing nut, and an old cheap hex wrench. I opted out of installing handles on this (like most do that are this version) because i liked the feel. I could use my hole hand instead of holding onto some knobs. Hope you enjoy and view the video HERE!
