cornhole boards #1: Connecting pieces, drilling

04-24-2017 01:39 PM by Tony19 | 1 comment »

So a couple weeks ago I decided to make cornhole boards so I gathered all the materials and wood I would need, cut my pieces to size and here I am now. I just put together one board and I’m getting ready to start on the second. After I’m done attaching the ply wood I will connect my legs and drill the hole in the middle with a circular saw.

04-24-2017 11:43 AM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

Hey guys i just thought I’d talk about the importance of networking with each other in the woodworking/maker community. Social media is a HUGE platform to show your work and meet other woodworkers all over the world( i think we all know this) but i just wanted to share my usernames for my platforms in hopes you guys could give me a follow and ill return the favor. Its all about growth and i have a dream of making this my way of living and you wouldn’t know how much it would help m...

Work Around the House #1: New Screen Door

04-21-2017 02:28 PM by b1v1r | 4 comments »

We recently bought a ~22 year old house that needs some work and updating. As one of my first real projects around the house, I needed a new screen door to enjoy our screened in porch. The old door had decayed to the point of falling apart. I thought this would be a great place to start with a new found hobby of woodworking. The finished project is here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/313826 I won’t go into too much detail here – just wanted to go through my steps. As I ...

Saw Til #3: Dovetails, lots of dovetails

04-13-2017 04:43 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Lets see, first thing today….rebate plane work.. Needed a place to attach the plywood back to…Then, some layout work.. Then a saw got put to work.. Usual suspects.. Chop from one face.. Flip over and repeat. Finally try a test fit.. Meh. Got the top of the til done, a set up for a glue up.. But needed a way to clamp this up, and not be in the way.. Works for me..Got the top fitted, now for the bottom… Wider board means more dovetails to do…...

Saw Til #2: Moving day, crosscutting parts

04-11-2017 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Found a spot for the til to call “home” ....right on the end of the lathe bench…..first, a few things have to move out of the way. A B&D WorkMate was sitting in that spot, with a huge sander sitting on it…..got the sander moved elsewhere.. To the Power Tool Bench. Table is merely stowed for now, can place it where it is needed, later. Almost cleaned off workmate is in it’s new home…might even be able to USE it, now. Swept the floor a bit...

Saw Til #1: From scraps to a til

04-10-2017 01:42 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well at least the start of one. Inventory after the Table build, showed a few decent enough boards sitting around.. Got to looking at all the saws in the shop, mostly hanging overheard from the Dungeon’s ceiling joists. Figured I could cobble a til out of some of the scraps. Had a 1×6 that seemed long enough for two sides, but it wasn’t quite wide enough….had a couple 1×4s. One of them needed jointed to make a glue joint. Offset the two 1×...

Checked the drawer, again…needed the front planed flat.. Works for me.. Corner blocks…were ...

Pine Table Project #4: Catching up, and a drawer made

04-02-2017 02:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Beginning to dislike hand cut half blind Dovetails…...PITA to do.. This is the second one I’ve ever done, without using an electric router and jig…..Maybe after a few more, I might get decent at these? Second side is out of the clamps, legs have their beads milled And stashed over with the first side. Dovetails are passable.. Ok, besides cleaning up a new plane I traded for, I did manage to make a drawer today. First, since I am done with the bead cutter, I cou...

03-30-2017 05:17 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, the cussing has begun…... Decided to mill a few tenons on the ends of the aprons…..Discovered I NEED the spur installed as soon as it gets here on my Stanley #45…..as I “Fired” the Wards #78 today. First off, I laid out for a tenon Didn’t want a tenon the full width of the 1×6, so.. Cut off a 3/4” x 3/4” square on each corner. At least there is less to work on….Got the Stanley made Wards #78 out of storage and star...

Pine Table Project #2: Rest of the legs and some aprons

03-29-2017 04:29 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...
