From cut-offs to.... #3: top is done, tenons as well

06-15-2018 01:59 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still sore today, decided to try to get something done Like a few bevels?The other end grain bevel was done like the first one….also used a different #4.. A #4c model….Made in England.. Cuts a might deeper than the other Stanley #4 I have….Used the Millers Falls to get things close, then the final work done with the #4. Ok, ends are done, next was the long sides… This time, it was more of holding the plane at a”skew” and going along un...

From cut-offs to.... #2: A day of planes, handplanes that is

06-14-2018 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Coughing jag last night, pulled a few things under the right shoulder blade…..might be a little limited today… Kept the size of the planes small…nothing bigger than a jack plane… Leg blanks were a mixed lot….needed planed to remove the saw marks, and try to get them all the same size…around 1” square. Beltsanding center to smooth the curved sections….finally got all four to match each other.. Not perfect, but they will do….even ...

From cut-offs to.... #1: Legs

06-13-2018 03:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, everyone has a bin for cut-offs and other scraps….never really find a use for them, right? From the Bed Frame Project…I was left with a lot of little pieces,,,and a bunch of shavings…most went out to the burn pit, to smoke away the skeeters…..I was left with these three things, way too big to burn.. 2×10 x 18” and one a tad longer. Was big enough, I had to clean the bench completely off… Amazing how fast a tool well fills up…I even...

Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

Had to go to the basement, and check the clothes dryer…..half the load needed to go through again…checked on the Quart can of Poly Gloss Varnish…to see IF I needed to by a new can… Opened the lid…looked like new, only 1/2 of a pint missing…had a brush handy..and since I was going to be down here anyway, waiting on the dryer… How about a PIP? View from the right side….that is not “blotch” it is grain.. View from the center...

06-03-2018 05:34 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had the tenons on the aprons done… And ran the Stanley 45 along two edges, to form a bead. One side, then stand it up on edge, to complete the bead. Outside corner on each leg also got a bead detail…Laid out for the mortise..Gather up the tools to chop the hole.. test fit the tenon.. Until all parts could be dry fitted together. Top got “rounded” And set aside….after a glue up.. Found the flattest spot in the shop’s floor, and go...

Simple Bedside Table #2: Leg work, and other jobs

05-31-2018 07:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Bedframe is completed, installed, posted….Boss approved…soooo, I can get back to that little table? Since this thing was still out, I cut the bad sections out of the 1×4s..enough “good” was left.. To make two short and two long blanks….set these out of the way, for now. That 2×10 under them? may have a used for it, on another project…right now it is in the way…clamps came off the top…ran a plane along all four edges.. Which...

05-31-2018 07:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Wanted something to do, while I was waiting on parts for that bedframe project…While picking up lumber for the bed, I also picked a 1×10 x 4’, and a couple 1×4 x 4’ boards….just Pine, cheap ones from Menard’s….had to dig through and find the best in the bin…. Which left the problem of legs for the table….table didn’t NEED to be all that tall…..had a chunk of 2×10, about 29” long…..nasty mess in the cente...
