Create a very smart and simple template

06-23-2018 10:27 AM by Project of the day | 0 comments »

Yesterday I wrote about how to build storage boxes in a very fast and efficient way. Important tools to creating these boxes so incredibly fast are my planer/moulder witch is planing the box sides. To make it easy and quick to set up the planer I create this style templates for my molding. To explain how I do, I made a video about it.Always make the template after the steel holder instead of the steel, leaving problems with round edges on the steel and obtaining a straight and fine edge for r...

Mission-style mahogany desk #3: Front apron mortises done, and an assembly of the frame

06-20-2018 02:41 AM by Woodbutchery | 6 comments »

The front apron mortises are complete, and then a fit of the whole frame. I have a few tenons to adjust, some research and eventual installation of drawer frames, and a lot of practice on dovetail joinery before I make the drawers. Really happy with the way this is coming together. Happy to hear comments, as always. Thanks for looking.

From cut-offs to.... #3: top is done, tenons as well

06-15-2018 01:59 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still sore today, decided to try to get something done Like a few bevels?The other end grain bevel was done like the first one….also used a different #4.. A #4c model….Made in England.. Cuts a might deeper than the other Stanley #4 I have….Used the Millers Falls to get things close, then the final work done with the #4. Ok, ends are done, next was the long sides… This time, it was more of holding the plane at a”skew” and going along un...

From cut-offs to.... #2: A day of planes, handplanes that is

06-14-2018 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Coughing jag last night, pulled a few things under the right shoulder blade…..might be a little limited today… Kept the size of the planes small…nothing bigger than a jack plane… Leg blanks were a mixed lot….needed planed to remove the saw marks, and try to get them all the same size…around 1” square. Beltsanding center to smooth the curved sections….finally got all four to match each other.. Not perfect, but they will do….even ...

From cut-offs to.... #1: Legs

06-13-2018 03:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, everyone has a bin for cut-offs and other scraps….never really find a use for them, right? From the Bed Frame Project…I was left with a lot of little pieces,,,and a bunch of shavings…most went out to the burn pit, to smoke away the skeeters…..I was left with these three things, way too big to burn.. 2×10 x 18” and one a tad longer. Was big enough, I had to clean the bench completely off… Amazing how fast a tool well fills up…I even...

Vintage Tools #1: Stanley and Wards Smoothing Planes

06-07-2018 07:07 PM by DJL1031 | 0 comments »

I was on a quest to acquire a couple of brass shoulder planes I had spotted a while back at an antique place (huge). And, of course, they were gone. I asked one of the dealer/ attendants about them and he remembered selling the last one. I wanted to give him an eye poke, but resisted. Instead, I found a Stanley “Bailey” No 5 smoothing plane and a Wards “Master ”, probably a No 7. I’ve begun the restoration process. The pic shows one that is nearly flattened...

Simple Bedside Table #3: Connecting the legs

06-03-2018 05:34 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had the tenons on the aprons done… And ran the Stanley 45 along two edges, to form a bead. One side, then stand it up on edge, to complete the bead. Outside corner on each leg also got a bead detail…Laid out for the mortise..Gather up the tools to chop the hole.. test fit the tenon.. Until all parts could be dry fitted together. Top got “rounded” And set aside….after a glue up.. Found the flattest spot in the shop’s floor, and go...

Simple Bedside Table #2: Leg work, and other jobs

05-31-2018 07:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Bedframe is completed, installed, posted….Boss approved…soooo, I can get back to that little table? Since this thing was still out, I cut the bad sections out of the 1×4s..enough “good” was left.. To make two short and two long blanks….set these out of the way, for now. That 2×10 under them? may have a used for it, on another project…right now it is in the way…clamps came off the top…ran a plane along all four edges.. Which...

Simple Bedside Table #1: Started up

05-31-2018 07:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Wanted something to do, while I was waiting on parts for that bedframe project…While picking up lumber for the bed, I also picked a 1×10 x 4’, and a couple 1×4 x 4’ boards….just Pine, cheap ones from Menard’s….had to dig through and find the best in the bin…. Which left the problem of legs for the table….table didn’t NEED to be all that tall…..had a chunk of 2×10, about 29” long…..nasty mess in the cente...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #7: Friday's Follies

05-26-2018 04:03 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was a mean, old, LONG day….Yard sale had these two clamps.. $4..one pad was missing, oh well. Fabric was bought… Hey, the Boss picked it out…2 yards worth….and a can of “finish” We’ll see. Plywood panel needed a rebate around the edges.. Wards 78 was able, despite my sore left thumb, to peel off one layer…1/2” or so wide. This way, the panel AND the fabric will fit in the grooves…Stapler…was a POS..three tries ...
