Workbench Build #19: Clean up and Reset.. Laminating the top Part 1

03-05-2013 05:23 PM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Not much “Progress” over the last couple days unless you consider a good cleaning of the shop progress (which I kinda do). The place had become a safety hazard and I just wasn’t able to focus on anything with all the clutter and dust about so it had to be delt with before moving forward with anything else. I started out like this.. And after a full day of cleaning and re organizing some tools I got it to a working condition.. As a side note.. the wi...

Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber)

01-04-2014 04:16 AM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single prop Cessna. The shed is now used to house the small tractor and slasher that we use to keep our grass airstrip cut. The other side has two small 8’x8’ offices for me and my co-worker that we use for language study as we...

It was a good week-end. I made a small amount of progress on my computer table/desk. Still not finished but an getting closer. I can’t wait to share some pictures. A friend of mine did find me a new (axtually used)...new to me, hand plane at a garage sale over the week end. I will probably clean and sharpen it tonight, (there goes progress on the computer table)...oh well.Everyone have a good week.

A Peruvian Walnut Cradle #2: Now we are Rocking and Rolling!

10-26-2011 06:20 PM by jusfine | 3 comments »

After a number of failed attempts on the table saw to match the angles perfectly, I realized I could make the cuts simpler and more accurate with the track saw, and so I set the angle at 10 degrees for each piece, with the blade tilted at 1.5 degrees (which was needed to keep the shape square). I still do not fully understand why, but more about that in the final chapter. Next I set the fingers on the jig and marked the center and proceeded to cut the pins. With a 24̶...

Tool chest or blanket chest? #1: Tool chest, the corners get shaped

02-04-2014 12:28 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to cut some items into parts for the corners. Need four skinny, and four wider pieces. The “skinny” ones will gain the thickness of the parts they mate into, at the corner. Measured how much room i needed before making the foot cut out. Hmm, about 15” or so. The i found something round to layout a curve for the foot. Ah, an old dust port for a router. Then drew a line down from the circle, about 1” from the outside edge. Then continued the ...

Shop #6: Hand Tool Till

02-24-2011 10:54 PM by Big Ben | 3 comments »

My next shop project was suppose to be my Band Saw but that was pretty boring to talk about. I did the basic tuning, new cooling block, adjusted guides. I have yet to make the mobile base but that will happen when I need to move it around. What have been working on is a hand tool till. I decided I wanted to do more advanced joinery and having my tool spread out was a real pain. I will be adding more at time goes on but here it is at this point.The till holds my #8, #7, #6, #5, # 4 and LA...

SYP Spilt-Top Roubo Workbench #6: Plane Cabinet

11-25-2013 09:49 PM by grfrazee | 3 comments »

After getting tired of cleaning sawdust out of the nooks and crannies of my planes, I decided to build a little cabinet for them. It’s just a basic scrap plywood box with plywood drawers. I got a couple pairs of 100# full-extension drawer slides off Amazon for the drawers. I’m not the greatest at building carcasses (i.e., making them square), so I had to do some trial and error getting the fit right. For the drawer backs I just screwed on a couple pieces of scrap O...

Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

10-19-2012 10:57 PM by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

My first hand planes

08-05-2014 03:15 AM by MNclone | 3 comments »

After lurking on this site for a while, I stumbled across the Before and After tool restoration thread and thought it looked like fun. So a few weeks back I came across an estate sale that had some old planes for what I thought were reasonable prices so I picked a few up. I grabbed this $4 Craftsman “Sargent 408” and a $3 Stanley 118 block plane. I was pleased with the purchase and talked the wife into going back the next day. Everything was a bit cheaper then so the wards...
