Underway again...finally #8: Actually made cuts today

11-08-2017 01:13 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Yes, you read the title correctly. I actually made cuts today. After examining the smallest/shortest of 4 palletized plywood pieces, I decided to experiment with it – why gamble with the biggest, right? We’ll jump to the end of day pic first to provide context for the rest of the entry.Okay, so that’s where I wound up…the mockup is upside down though. The red arrows show fork lift tine cutouts in 2×4’s that I decided to “salvage” by filling th...

Daves Workshop #20: Prepping pine bead board wainscotting.

11-07-2017 04:35 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

For my bathroom remodel, we are prepping pine bead board wainscotting to be painted bright white. I set up a makeshift production stop using pretty much any old scrap I could cobble together in the shop and went to town at it. Take a look at the video and let me know what you think! And again, sorry about using external links, but the embed code from Youtube doesn’t seem to work here, and the embed generator previously shown here that I have used in the past relies on Adobe Fla...

Underway again...finally #6: College Football Day freebie haul

11-04-2017 06:48 PM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

Today being college football day and the area experiencing record setting heat for November as well as early morning fog making humidity uncharacteristically uncomfortable outside between 7-and-11 this morning, I don’t plan to do any work on the workbench today. Instead, I took a ride out to my “favorite”/go-to free pallet place and picked up some goodies – even made 2 runs as the Prius can only hold so much.I got plywood! 3 sheets somewhere between 3’x6’ a...

Making a home for my 45 plane #5: Finishing the exterior, and DONE!

10-08-2017 02:54 AM by CO_Goose | 2 comments »

Now that everything had a home, I removed it all so that the exterior could be finished. After a light sanding to round over the sharp edges, I applied a coat of Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO) for a minor amount of protection. The corners were also reinforced with 1/4” walnut dowels for a nice contrast to the pine. Remember that board for the base and lid? Well after the BLO hit it, it was obvious that it was not pine, but cherry, so that is providing another contrast to the box as well. ...

Making a home for my 45 plane #4: The interior, giving everything a home.

10-08-2017 02:35 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

Once the box was assembled, all of the little braces for the interior were next on the agenda. The interior was done by TLAR (That Looks About Right), no measurements, just grabbing scraps of wood at hand and making them fit where I wanted them to. This first picture shows one of the long rod holders, and the blade box hole. the long rods lean up against the end of the box, and two 3/4” square pieces capture them in place there. They do not go to the top of the box since that would...

Making a home for my 45 plane #3: Making the box

10-08-2017 02:19 AM by CO_Goose | 1 comment »

Making the Box itself is pretty straightforward. The Japanese style is basically a really big box joint, only three pins per joint. First the sides were cut to size, then the joints were formed using the table saw, sorry, no hand tools here. the pins were fine tuned with a chisel and the ends were chamfered using a small block plane. The sides used up most of the wide board that I had made, so I went off the the leftover pile of lumber and found a another board that I had picked up ...

Making a home for my 45 plane #2: Ideas for a Box

10-08-2017 01:33 AM by CO_Goose | 0 comments »

So after putzing around on the computer for a while I settled on the Japanese style toolbox. There are many articles on them, but I settled on the style that Christopher Schwarz had a drawing for here: https://blog.lostartpress.com/2013/03/24/japanese-tool-chest-measured-drawings/And then made a box here:https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/326395 I also liked the box that Brad made here on Lumber Jocks http://lumberjocks.com/projects/196978I wanted the plane to stand upri...

Maple Chest of Drawers #11: Top is done..

08-10-2017 02:34 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With a surprise ending, too….Got bored, decided to try the plank for the top…4/4×13-1/8” x 49” long…..heavier than it looked, awkward going down the steps to the shop…. After cutting off a chunk to get to a length for the case…..I thought I could not only flatten the slab out a bit, but get it close to 3/4” thick…...wasn’t happening on the thickness part, but I at least got it almost flat.. Width-wise, was too narrow. Wal...
