Grandson's Coffee Table #4: A start on the drawer

12-12-2018 06:06 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Had to haul the last 1×6 x 6’ plank to the shop…5 hours later, swept the shop, called it a day. Dust collector? I let the dust settle out onto the floor, sweep it up into my DUST PAN, and dump that “dust collector” into the shop’s trash can….and, when THAT get full, I empty that into the firepit, light a match…maybe roast some hotdogs.. Anyway…removed the clamps from the glue up….no creaks, no cracking sounds….must have...

Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

Grandson's Coffee Table #2: Mortises, Beads, and other stuff..

12-11-2018 02:54 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Mortises…Jig was set up… I use the tenon to lay out the mortise…roughly centered on the leg… Easy way was to just trace around the tenon, but that leads to twisted holes, IF the boards more…so, I make two marks where the top and bottom of the mortise will be…go up to the top, mark to spots showing how wide, and where the tenon will be…squares to mark across the leg…used a marking gauge to mark the side walls.. Usual suspects as to chis...

Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 2 comments »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...

Outdoor table #5: Finishing the table top

12-07-2018 08:42 AM by icemanhank | 9 comments »

My first attempt at bread board ends by hand. It was tougher than I thought and I would give one end a 9.5/10 and the other sadly an 8/10 but I can’t fix it now it is together. Putting it down to a learning experience and more skills and sharper tools needed.

End Table, out of Ash #6: Rails getting done

11-29-2018 06:17 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Cussing was at Marine Boot Camp Day #1 level….by the end of the day…..anyway, cleared off the tablesaw..had work for it to do. Those ugly, wavy blanks for the rails? Took two fence settings to rip the rails down to 1-1/4” width..or, about the same height as the saw blade can be raised to… Ripped the worst off one edge of each, to get an almost straight edge. Reset the fence to the final width, “straight edge” against the fence, rip to final width. ...

Random Shop Jigs and Projects #1: Slab Flattening Router Jig Using Kreg Universal Bench Rails

11-26-2018 03:10 AM by BoilerUp21 | 2 comments »

I had an extra set of Kreg Universal Bench Rails laying around and decided they might make good rails for a slab flattening jig that i have been intending to make for larger pieces that won’t fit in my planer. I don’t want to spend $700 for the woodpeckers slab flattening mill, although it looks like a great setup. The sturdy rails lend themselves well to both the main rails and the trough guides for the router. Clamps through the existing dog holes in my 48...
