Maple/oak project/desk #5: Clamps, I need CLAMPS

07-03-2015 02:19 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to do some glue ups. Took the clamps off of the dry fit. Plan was to start as small as I could, and work my way out from there. Last night, just two clamps, and some Elmers. Center divider got clamped into the front board. Let it sit overnight. Next morning, got a few items done. A router tabel set up to make pencil grooves, start and stop marks and locator marks for the round nosed coce bit. Had those same marks on the oak 2×2…..well they helped at first. One...

What to do with mistakes?

07-14-2008 05:29 AM by Benomatic | 10 comments »

I’ve been working on a small hanging shelf that is suppose to be testing out my new table saw: in reality it is my table saw testing me out. I made the mistake of cutting my dados with a wobble blade instead of waiting to buy an actual set of Freud dado blades- but at the time it seemed like I could get away with it. Its b/c these dados turned out so bad that I went out and bought the right kind of blade for the job I was doing. Why- WHY! So my mistake is now having dados which re...

Sewing Center #9

04-13-2009 03:53 PM by robbi | 19 comments »

Progress….yadahooty! Got the top on, the hole cut, the lift put in and the doors hung…this will be the last post until I put the finish on. I still have to put the second top on, the one that folds out and covers the open top, but I set it on top so you could see how it will look when it’s done…sort of. I still have about 10% left to do…and you know what they say about that… I didn’t run into any real problems except that the entire thing is not e...

Oak 6 Panel Door Swap out

03-23-2011 04:45 AM by Grandson_Of_Rue | 2 comments »

My home was built with white 6 panel hollow core interior doors. I have long hated them. Thus this project was born. I also hate cheap brass lock sets and hinges. (On a side note I hate my builder – no one takes pride in their work anymore) I know that my doors are all Mastercraft. I started by purchasing a Mastercraft 6-panel Oak door. I scrapped the frame, finished the door and hung it. I did this to avoid the need to drill the lock set hole and mortise the hinges. I considered ...

Two boards, and some tools: working down some rough sawn wood

04-09-2013 06:09 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

I have two planks. One is a Black Walnut 4/4 by 6” by 30” long. There other? Well, here is a clue Lovely, ain’t it? More on that one in a bit. I went after the Walnut plank, looking to smooth the faces of it first. A little time with a #6 small jointer, and a #5 Jack plane, and one face was ready for a smooth plane Bandsawn from a log awhile ago. Saw marks were easy to clean off. The edges were a little more work. One was almost done, just had a l...

That Hole in the Floor #1: The Trap door framing and mechanism

10-20-2014 09:52 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

I’ve remodeled the entire house. Always a work in progress but mostly done. Ripped out walls, replaced paneling with sheetrock/paint, replaced carpets with hardwood floors, I made new kitchen cabinets, all moldings… etc. I’ve blogged most of it as I went along. The hole in the ground:We have a cellar that takes up about half the floor area of the house. The rest is a slab. It is a washroom, storage, houses the hot water tank, pump tank, etc. It’s finished off pretty...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #4: Base is built!!

10-08-2012 12:58 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 16 comments »

I built the base over the weekend. I kinda wish I had gone a little thicker on the wood. Be that as it may, I like it. I cut all the wood 1.25 square. Of course when I tried the cross braces up against the legs I found an error in the thickness. I knew that ! ;) I have no idea why I didn’t think of it. Glue up was a nightmare. I leaned a huge lessons including this one: “Sometimes you have to make a jig!!! I am mostly out of the odd ball shapes business for a while but in the f...

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

04-09-2013 06:14 PM by BobInMidland | 2 comments »

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...
