That OddLots Ad #29: Final PIP..

10-09-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Before this thing is brought upstairs, insert and backs installed, and posted as a Project… Sanding was done. Then a coat of this stain was brushed on…I thought about using these latches for the doors.. As they match the rest of the hardware…. Was then informed by a Design Guru, that such latches are CHEAP, and the look sucks? One on every corner…..Let the stain dry a while…..happened to remember I had a wee bit of Walnut scrap sitting around. Firs...

Pulled up to the house today…van load of groceries, and a replacement TV…soon as we started to unload the van..it started to rain..hard. Finally get everything into the house, and THEN the sun comes out…grrr Decided to see IF the door was ready to install….carefully removed the clamps…no creaks, no loud cracking noises..Placed the door in the leg vise...

Wooden Shackles #4: Accents Not Going as Planned

10-03-2018 12:55 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I had a thought (this is normally where my projects go wrong) and wondered if I could put some nice accents on my shackles like the real woodworkers do. Maybe some peg caps, or at least fake ones that make it look like less bland. I bought a selection of plug cutting bits and tried the 3/8” one to make small circles. I used a 3/8” inch forsner bit to make the holes … The problem came when I discovered the 3/8” plug cutter doesn’t in fact cut 3/8” ...

Wooden Shackles #3: Production and Practice

09-30-2018 01:28 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I decided to move forward with the styles and designs I’ve made up so far, stained them and I’m letting them dry at the moment. I chose to experiment and stain one set with PVC primer which is purple, I was surprised how well it worked! As a choice to try and do something a little more complicated I drew out a rounded set and cut them on the bandsaw, a tool I was always nervous about. But after sanding and tinkering I’m happy with the result. The plan...

That OddLots Ad #22: Door hung, drawer started..

09-28-2018 03:24 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, spent 3 hours of shop time yesterday. Seems to be about average amount of time I can spend in the shop at a stretch. Long time ago, an 8-12 hour stertch was being done. Them days are long gone. Anyway, the door glue up came out of the clamps yesterday…needed a bit of trimming to fit.. Both edges had a slight bow to them…Stanley #6c flattened that out. one end was a bit out of square, trimmed that , as well. Hinges…was having issues with the cordless dr...

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...

Wooden Shackles #1: Rough Shaping

09-24-2018 12:54 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

I decided to get back into woodworking with something simple. I don’t have much experience or practice with woodworking but I thought I’d do something to go along with the themes of a pirate group I’m part of in Oregon. This was the start of the wood I chose, a 2×6 that was part of an old fence we had in the back yard, still good. I cut it up to 12 inches long and used a hole saw to cut two 2” holes three inches to center from each end. The smaller h...

Hmmmm..One ( after the layouts) Need to remember to cut on the waste side of the lines..Two.. Same saw, just a rip cut, this time…and, IF things we...
