Stepback Cupboard in Pine #11: Top is done, case assembled

03-10-2018 03:07 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Worked in two separate sessions yesterday….had a morning “shift”, a trip to get a CT Scan on the head, then when we got back home, an evening shift….Morning stuff:Top was removed from the clamps, set aside for a while. Ripped a few 1×1s from the leftovers…needed to build out the drawer runners, for the drawer to slide on….also needed guides to keep the drawer centered in the opening… A bead of glue and a screw. Both are attached to the webf...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #10: Catching up, part 2,making a top panel

03-09-2018 12:16 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, got the 1×8 x 8’ plank to the shop, somehow….had the bench cleared off, and ready to do a bit of work… Saw was needed to make a few cuts….needed three pieces 27” long…lay out a cut line.. Making sure the line was hanging over the end far enough to miss the bench vise…. Was trying NOT to include this into one of the pieces.. But, to get rid of this ugly thing, I had to use it’s little brother.. We have ways…..the fir...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #9: Catching things up, face frame installed

03-08-2018 11:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Amongst other “chores”....Doctor Visits, VA paperwork, the usual distractions… Anyway, I got the mortise and tenons done this week on the face frame…even did a glue up.. Had to cut a bit away, so the beads can wrap around the openings.. Will need a little clean up. Let the frame sit a day….then started an install.. Test fit to mark where the counter-bored screw holes would go….then drilled both the counter-bores and a pilot hole at each mark....

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #8: Part 2, the Sunday Follies

03-05-2018 04:25 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hand tremors…PITA to do woodworking with. New meds may be the cause, will find out Monday. Anyway, this morning, I was still house, and puppy sitting….once they were done with their business outside, and laying down for their all-morning naps…I could head to the shop for a bit…had to rearrange a little bit.. Moved the case a bit ( those pipe clamps are nice, but a detriment to knee caps) so I could use the mitresaw.. Swung it over to the “45” st...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #7: Face Frame, part 1

03-05-2018 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Rough day in the shop….first trip did not go well, was making mistakes, could not concentrate on things…ran the Stanley 45 along the wrong edge…..hands were getting too close to sharp objects….closed the shop. Went back upstairs until the mind could focus on the jobs being done. Much safer that way. Did not leave any “Fresh DNA” on stuff in the shop. Kept stewing about it all day long..it kind of got me irish up…...was finally able to calm...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #6: plywood day..meh

03-03-2018 02:11 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

House sitting and Puppy sitting today and tomorrow…and trying to get a little shop time in…Hauled two plywood panels to the shop…one for shelf panels, and one for the back of the case..thinking that would be it, for the day…not. had trouble marking the one panel for the size of the shelf….a sign of things to come.. Thought I could use either the 6” Skil saw, or the cordless one…..could not get past the case to get either..decided to use a handsaw...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #5: Mortise work..

03-02-2018 01:22 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, mortises to house all them tenons. I used a tenon to do a layout for each mortise… I left the stile sit out a bit from the jig, for a reason.. The little Disston No.4 backsaw was used to saw the waste….open ended mortise ( they blow out anyway in Pine) but I could only saw at this angle. I tried to either stay inside of the lines, or at least split them… Then a mortise chisel to dig a hole where the saw couldn’t reach….then come in from the end...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #4: Frames, part 1

03-02-2018 12:50 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, trying to get caught up here…A while back, I was able to haul the 1×2s to the shop, and make a few cuts with the “small” mitresaw.. Should be enough parts…I hope. Set up the Larger Mitresaw’s depth stops…. Found the stock holders.. Now you know why there are those slots in the mitre box’s deck. Since I was done with the other mitre box, I put it’s saw away… That little saw will get used a bit later, I folded up t...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #3: side panels worked on

02-25-2018 03:28 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got both panels done, for now….one of the rare days I could spend an afternoon IN the shop.. Once I figured which face goes to which face, I stacked the two panels together, clamped them up. Then used the saw /router guide to square both ends. Then, since the panels were still clamped up, I jointed the edges… Had to use the jack plane on a couple knotty spots, then the big guy could finish up.. Less time hauling the 10 pounder around, that way. Left the panels cl...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #2: Second Panel done, and a clean up..

02-24-2018 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Second panel was glued up…. Used the old jointer again….This time around, the clamps were a bit different. Started with the middle clamp. Got all three boards in the same “plane” and made sure they stayed put. then worked my way towards the ends….the cauls were doubled up….Less marks in the good wood. Far end used a pair of Visegrip Finger clamps to hold the pair…got a little crowded. Good thing the clamp was already tightened down...
