A Stepback Cupboard build #8: Updates: getting the lower unit about finished

01-20-2018 02:55 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Fighting a chest cold all week long….I was able to sand a few places, and add a seal coat or two.. I tipped the case onto it’s back, just a bit, so I could trim the plugs flush and do some sanding…. The Trimmers. Use the chisel with the bevel down, a couple taps with the hammer to pop the waste off. I try to follow the grain to keep from going too deep….8 out of 9? not too bad. Then sand the remains flush, sand the door and anywhere else that needed i...

Shop Notes #5: Sharpening

01-19-2018 05:01 PM by Steve | 5 comments »

Sharpening day yesterday. I don’t do this often enough, especially with my planes. Not sure why I procrastinate; it’s not an unpleasant job and the results are worth the effort. The chisels on the bench are new—a gift last year. Some sharpened up right away, others took some scrubbing. Today I’ll be cleaning and inspecting my table saw blades. I did take some time to do some actual work, though, tightening up some antique chairs. I don’t do furnitur...

Just Plane Old #3: after refurb

01-17-2018 04:01 AM by socrbent | 2 comments »

Six years later I finally got around to it. Started with 2 more turpentine baths, removed remainder of broken tote, clamped and glued crack on base of the smaller plane, created new totes from some aged cherry, cleaned metal parts with Evaporust, applied some rust preventative, made a new wedge for larger plane from oak, applied two coats of BLO, and buffed out with Beal system. Both planes appear to have been used bevel down. Is that usual? Started like this: Ended like this: ...

Hand Plane Restoration #1: Stanley No4

01-12-2018 03:59 AM by icemanhank | 2 comments »

In the old days in the UK a carpenter’s tools used to passed on via a trade scheme to a young apprentice just starting out. Sadly this sort of thing seems to have gone in this day and age of throw away.I found this old hand plane in an old wares store in Wauchope in poor condition and restored it for my nephew who is starting out in the trade. It’s a beauty and has miles of shavings left in it!It has a new Hock blade and chip breaker and works a treat.

A Stepback Cupboard build #7: Door is done....

01-11-2018 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, I did get a panel glued up this week.. And let it sit a day…..today, it came out of the clamps. Marked for final width, and a rip cut made on the bandsaw. Then face planed to remove some high spots.. Along with jointing the sawn edge. Width was now set, length was about as close as I could get it. Marked a line along one end, to do a bevel across the grain….. Panel raising. This panel is a bit on the thick side. (more on that in a bit) Paul Selle...

Roubo-inspired Workbench ... with construction lumber. #2: The Second Slab

01-09-2018 04:48 PM by kr580 | 2 comments »

The Second Slab Here’s the second batch of boards squared up. I was able to fix the jointer knives over Christmas time so these are all dead square now. Oh, how much easier everything was. Second slab all glued up. I maybe got a little excited with the glue. I didn’t have a second set of hands for this one so I smothered it a bit to make up for lost time. Oops. With the boards now straight and square I didn’t have to hock off 3/32” from the whole thing like be...

A Stepback Cupboard build #6: Drawer fitted, door started

01-09-2018 01:33 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, got the drawer fine tuned, once it came out of the clamps.. Dovetails now look a bit better…..Installed two strips of scrap onto the runners in the case, where the drawer will slide. Added a pair of shiny knobs…. So I can pull the drawer back out. Knob details? Nothing real fancy.. Drawer was sticking a bit…easy fix. I let the case sit over night, to let the glue holding the guides strip in place cure. Pulled the drawer out, and ran a #4 plane along t...

Roubo-inspired Workbench ... with construction lumber. #1: The First Slab

01-08-2018 01:48 PM by kr580 | 4 comments »

Hello. First project here. Long time lurker, long time LJ enjoyer, woodworking noob. I want a Roubo-inspired workbench. (I’m yet another Schwarz sheep I guess.) I can’t afford a legit Roubo workbench with decent wood so I chose to make it out of 2×4 kiln-dried Douglas Fir studs milled up to (hopefully) a good standard. Here goes nothing! I apologize for the crappy pictures, they’ve been an afterthought so far. The Plan Here’s my sketchup design. It will b...

A Stepback Cupboard build #5: A drawer building day

01-07-2018 12:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I got the clamps off, and things laid out… Drawer front fits…I removed the rest of the clamps, and moved the case so I could have a bit more elbow room… Hauled the Pine 1×6 to the shop. Set up to cut a pair of drawer sides. A Disston D-7, 10ppi crosscut. That green can was also needed, today One end was a tad off, used the mitre box to trim it down to match the first one. You would think, that both parts coming from the same board, would be the s...
