Bed Frame, out of Pine #4: Grooves & Dry Fits

05-21-2018 01:59 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

The 2×4 rails need all the tenons done, and a groove ploughed… Rail that had the first set of tenons done…Stanley 45 was still set up….fence needed tweaked a bit, to better center the groove…plane was still set tad tad too deep.. Nice thick curls look nice, but the plane is a bear to push…lightened the cut a bit, added a bit of candle wax,,,pushed along much better. Unlike the posts, I can run the plane all the way through.. Then laid out the set ...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #2: Joinery work, part 1

05-20-2018 04:10 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Yep, part one….otherwise this episode will be too long of a read….Need to chop/mill/ cuss places for the rails to sit.. Once I knew where the “top and bottom” of the joint was…mitre boxes made the square cuts….then this vintage saw .. Was set to the required depth of cut, and made a lot of cuts… Ever wonder why some chisels are called “Beaters”? Old wide chisel, drive it down, the beat on the side of the handle…to pop all...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #1: A start up

05-20-2018 03:35 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Have to start somewhere, right…The Boss wanted a bedframe, to enclose that metal frame thingy the mattress sits on….and the dogs keeping pushing the mattress off of….she also wants a Head Board….that she intends to add a padded fabric to a flat panel…..( and a small table to sit beside the new bed….after this is done… For once, a “Plan” was drawn out….at least as far as I do such things.. Well, for me. this is a Plan. Needed...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

A Box of Fancy Pine #3: Moldings from scratch?

05-08-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

OK….Moldings. Still had some of that fancy grained pine…and I wanted to add a molded bottom edge to the box… Drew a “pattern” of sorts….to lay out where each cut will go. Decided to use the Stanley 45 for the first two cuts.. Step 1 was a bead. This board was to make a pattern, for the actual molding…so I could reset the planes.. Step 2 was this “cove” cut. I had ground a profile on an old cutter, to make a trough for auge...

A Box of Fancy Pine #2: Almost assembly time

05-08-2018 11:14 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, plan was to have a divider in the middle of the box…so, mark out for a dado to be milled.. Then more work with the backsaw…. Then a chisel to clean it out….. Hand plane to smooth the divider up….was a tad rough from the bandsaw…and you can see the planning stop. Then, this is where the cussing began in earnest….Kept trying to dry fit all the parts at once….got fed up, and then just spread the glue, added the clamps, and a couple cauls...

A Box of Fancy Pine #1: Start up

05-08-2018 10:51 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Been getting lazy about writing these Blogs, lately. Finished up box project a while back, and forgot to Blog about it…Oooops. Well, I’ll see IF I can find all the stuff about this Fancy box build, and see how it turns out… After the Pine Stepback Cupboard Project was done, I had a bunch of leftovers to use up..or burn. Ran the bandsaw a lot, to resaw them down to about 3/8” thick…that WAS the plan. Picture shows one of the “plainer” bo...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #3: almost done, sidetracked a bit

04-09-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Getting an update, here. Lots of trash hauled out of the shop…took a few days… One of the first items cleaned out. Made a nasty mess on the floor.. All the hammers were set aside…. I think they will stay here, for now. Found a lot of stuff in that drawer…clamps, drill bits, a second mallet.. A speed square….a few bits of hardware…about a dozen files.. And a slick. Handled files went back into the drawer…non-handled ones went to...
