Cussing has been about….Marine D.I. first day level….but, we getting a few things done.Top of the posts. Decided to at least do the footboard ones…and work out any “kinks” First off, wanted a bead detail….Stanley 45 was still set up from doing those grooves, changed out the cutters to use a bead cutter about the same width….yep, it was quite sharp…never felt a thing, but there was fresh DNA appearing on the pine. Plan was to do just the o...

2 Car Garage Wood Shop Tour

05-21-2018 10:26 PM by wrenchhead | 7 comments »

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdgtdxMRqok

Bed Frame, out of Pine #4: Grooves & Dry Fits

05-21-2018 01:59 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

The 2×4 rails need all the tenons done, and a groove ploughed… Rail that had the first set of tenons done…Stanley 45 was still set up….fence needed tweaked a bit, to better center the groove…plane was still set tad tad too deep.. Nice thick curls look nice, but the plane is a bear to push…lightened the cut a bit, added a bit of candle wax,,,pushed along much better. Unlike the posts, I can run the plane all the way through.. Then laid out the set ...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #2: Joinery work, part 1

05-20-2018 04:10 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Yep, part one….otherwise this episode will be too long of a read….Need to chop/mill/ cuss places for the rails to sit.. Once I knew where the “top and bottom” of the joint was…mitre boxes made the square cuts….then this vintage saw .. Was set to the required depth of cut, and made a lot of cuts… Ever wonder why some chisels are called “Beaters”? Old wide chisel, drive it down, the beat on the side of the handle…to pop all...

Coffee table #1: Some pics of my daughters coffee table

05-13-2018 12:47 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi all, I was asked by daughter #2 to build a coffee table of her and her partners design. I had some Tasmanian Blackwood floating around in the shed which I thought would be nice for the frame and had some beautiful 1/4 sawn tasmanian Oak at the wood club that was free (old church pews) which I thought I could use for the top. Although the original intension was a live edge piece. This can be changed easily at a later time if she still wants the slab top. The Oak for the top, while ...

I know there are a lot of different methods and ways to restore a plane so I thought I would share how I do it. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZV0DfQRPxIs

A Box of Fancy Pine #3: Moldings from scratch?

05-08-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

OK….Moldings. Still had some of that fancy grained pine…and I wanted to add a molded bottom edge to the box… Drew a “pattern” of sorts….to lay out where each cut will go. Decided to use the Stanley 45 for the first two cuts.. Step 1 was a bead. This board was to make a pattern, for the actual molding…so I could reset the planes.. Step 2 was this “cove” cut. I had ground a profile on an old cutter, to make a trough for auge...

A Box of Fancy Pine #2: Almost assembly time

05-08-2018 11:14 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, plan was to have a divider in the middle of the box…so, mark out for a dado to be milled.. Then more work with the backsaw…. Then a chisel to clean it out….. Hand plane to smooth the divider up….was a tad rough from the bandsaw…and you can see the planning stop. Then, this is where the cussing began in earnest….Kept trying to dry fit all the parts at once….got fed up, and then just spread the glue, added the clamps, and a couple cauls...
