Stanley 45 box #7: Flushing off the Reinforcements

10-13-2015 01:42 PM by Mitch Peacock | 0 comments »

Last time I installed reinforcements to the plain mitred corners of my Stanley no.45 Box, and left them to cure. Now came the time to flush of the excess material, and knock the sharp edges off. The initial work was done with my small pull saw, after which I turned to a sharp chisel, and then smooth plane and card scraper. Supporting the box over boards clamped to the bench top works really well, and this method is often used when making drawers. Once the surfaces were satisfacto...

Stanley 45 box #4: Groovy

10-12-2015 05:37 PM by Mitch Peacock | 0 comments »

Having mitred the corners, the temptation is to glue the box sides together – a mistake I made once, but never again! Of course you need to make provision for the box bottom and lid first. You could just rebate for the bottom, and rely on glue and pins, but I like to float the bottom in a groove. And a sliding lid, with it’s lack of hardware, makes an ideal choice and also requires a groove. Therefore it seemed only fitting to use the no.45 to make the grooves, which is what I ...

Episode 3 - Hydro-Painting Finish

10-12-2015 07:07 AM by Mike | 1 comment »

Hi All; This week I was very busy so I didn’t have time for a more traditional project video. I did want to try a new finishing technique I had come across called Hydro-Painting. It involves spray paint and a bucket of water. The resulting box is from one of my first attempts. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks, Mike View on YouTube

Stanley 45 box #2: Sizing for the Plane

10-06-2015 09:40 PM by Mitch Peacock | 1 comment »

After getting excited about the new project, it suddenly dawned on me “what if the reclaimed pine I had wasn’t big enough”. Of course I knew I had sufficient wood – after all I had two sizeable drawer boxes. But what if the drawer sides weren’t deep enough to cover both the height of the plane plus allowance for the bottom and lid. Original boxes for the #45 were undoubtedly made without using glued up panels, and I wanted to do the same. It was with some trepida...

Stanley 45 box #1: The Prologue

10-04-2015 09:04 PM by Mitch Peacock | 2 comments »

My Stanley 45 had lost it’s home when I acquired it. A sad but frequent story. I planned to rectify this when I had the opportunity, and recent events brought that closer. As far as I can determine, my 45 would have originally been supplied in a simple pine box with a sliding lid. Of course, any number of more sophisticated alternatives have been built by owners, and so my first task was to decide on my design. Out of the blue, I stumbled upon an old chest of drawers that had been...

I needed a miter saw station and wanted it to be good but simple. I need it to be mobile and have wood storage on the back. This is what I came up with. I can not say enough good stuff about the Best Fence by Fastcap. It is great. thanks for watching. View on YouTube

Screened Porch Corner Cupboard

09-29-2015 03:41 PM by redtail | 0 comments »

I had a few requests for more details on the corner cupboard so I thought I would post this series of photos I took during the project. As the pictures are installed into the blog it chopped off the right side. Sorry. The face frame and the doors are joined using pocket screws. The top is made using 1/2” plywood for a base and then applying the alternating pallet wood and barn board. I used the thickness planer to get both down to about 1/2” so that the total thickness of ...

Building For The Wife #8: Quick knot inlay, because the basketballs got bounced

09-26-2015 12:13 AM by fatman51 | 4 comments »

When I was fixing the knot blowouts in yesterday’s project, “Strip veneering kitchen cabinet doors”, I wanted to finish quickly and I made the classic mistake of hurrying. I know better, “fast” should be way lower on a woodworker’s list than quality, and patience. My impatience resulted in these two ugly basketballs. I wanted to keep the knots, but I did two things wrong. I planed where I should have sanded and I did not keep the knots. When I went i...

Building For The Wife #7: Strip veneering kitchen cabinet doors.

09-25-2015 09:48 AM by fatman51 | 6 comments »

I wanted to take a picture of my wife’s new kitchen bureau, spice rack, and utensil hanger so that I colud post the finished work here on my blog. I wanted people to see what I was talking about. When she caught me taking pictures of her kitchen, however, my wife stopped me. She refused to let me post pictures that included the crummy cabinets above the counter. At the very least, she wanted to replace the forty five year old formica veneered cabinet doors. Wanting both to please my...

Super workbench (at least for me)

09-24-2015 09:08 PM by woodworkerguyca | 4 comments »

For about a month I have been working on a new workbench. I’ve spent a little time researching what others have done to integrate the 3 tools I use the most, table saw, miter saw, router. The miter saw is held in place by sliding it over 4 aluminum pins so it can quickly moved to under the surface when I need more space. I kept the cutout so I can place the table cutout back when I remove the saw. I’m still working out how to mount the router to the table...
