Maple Frame & Panel Box #6: Assembled....and a forest of clamps

08-07-2018 02:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ends came out of the clamps…..test fits….weren’t that great. Decided not to cut a groove across the ends, just a notch in the bottom panel will do. Had to use a bunch of clamps, to get this thing together….one corner wasn’t going to line up….either the groove was off, or the tongue was… This was just the start of the follies…needed to add a couple cauls, to pull the ends into square…. More clamps. one on each end..Then, no...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #5: Ends are made

08-05-2018 02:18 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first..the front and back frames came out of the clamps…..not quite perfectly matched…we have ways Clamped together, back to back. Ran the #3c plane around, until they are matched up.. Set these aside, for now. Have the four corner blocks for the end frames to do….cut them all to the final length on the mite box. Gang them up into the vise, and try to get them all the same size.. One of them was having “issues”. Had a bit of trouble with i...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #4: Time for a little assembly?

08-04-2018 04:40 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Got both panels out of the clamps….needed to bevel the edges, to make them into Raised Panels… First, they needed trimmed and jointed, so they will fit into the frames….then a jig was made up So I could bevel the end grain ends first, and check for fit… Bevel extends about 3/4” back from the edge..once both ends were beveled, the the long grain edges were done.. Once both edges were done, and the frame for the back of the box was ready…glue and ...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #2: Cutting parts for the frames

08-02-2018 10:16 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got that panel up of the clamps…and out of my way…. This is what the “Plan” looks like…but nothing is set in stone….have to adapt to what sizes I have on hand.. Made a “cut list” of sorts…it said I needed 4 pieces @ 3/4×1-1/2×8-1/2” so those were milled.. It also said I needed 4 pieces @ 3/4” x 1” x 8-1/2”.....so milled those up…..then things got….changed..List called for 4 pieces, t...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #1: A start up

08-01-2018 04:36 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Have a large pile of Maple, and other hardwood scraps in the shop. Don’t really want to burn them….maybe a bit of resaw work….and wind up with a Frame & Panel Box/ Mini Chest? May make it similar to a Walnut & Cherry box I made a long while back. First, need to resaw some of the chunks down a bit.. Part of the stash. Bandsaw has a 1/4” blade on it.. While it is less stress on the saw, with the replacement motor, at least it is sharper than this ...

Shop stuff #131: Roubo build part 3

07-25-2018 10:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Facing the consequences of inexperience with working with slabs this big and a bit of carelessness I carry on and get the slabs ready to join them edge to edge. I decided by the end of it that since I have no real “plan” other than a picture in my head I will push on through and fix things a bit later. Long hot work but they finally get to the point where I can start joining the slabs in the next video. View on YouTube

Shaker Style Cupboard Using Only Hand Tools

07-25-2018 10:22 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this shaker style country cupboard using only hand tools. It has been a while since i did some traditional woodworking and wanted to improve my hand tool skills.This is also the first big project with my new workbench and was a good way to put it through it’s paces. This was a fun project and it gave me the opportunity to make a lot of different joinery (and gave me a good work out). Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnlrl-T2diY&t=1s

Chest of Pine Drawers #15: Last drawer done, and a PIP

07-22-2018 02:59 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Board was brought to the shop, yesterday… Two cuts were needed to be done, to get this done to size… Once those were done, and the back set aside for a bit….I knocked the other three parts back apart, had grooves to mill for the drawer’s bottom to go into… Since these were the last of the grooves I needed milled, I could do something different for the dados Made a new jig…..set up the Stanley 45 as a dado plane.. Turns out that a #18 cutter...
