More working with Pine #3: Posts and rockers done

05-12-2016 04:00 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, been a day or two, i did get the second long post done. I also got the first short (front) post done. Drawknife and spokeshave work, then a lot of sanding. i did make one seat rail, as a pattern for the other two. Just a simple curve on the bandsaw. Spokeshave to clean up. Went to menards the other day, and bought a 5/4 thick piece of pine 5/4×4 x 8’. Figured I could use this for the rockers. Board is clear, straight and flat sawn. Turn it up on edge t...

More working with Pine #1: Little rust hunt, and some saw work

05-08-2016 01:59 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Today, went out on a rust hunt of sorts…..usual luck this week. Found ONE place that had a few hand tools.. Stickers said $0.75 each…offered the gal a dollar bill for the lot…..”sold!” Ok, there was a bit of saw work to do, other the last few days…. Got the saw bench cleared off, as I wanted to turn this pile of boards Into something a bit easier to move around. Had four of those 4×4s to move around, and a 1×8x 10’ to cut do...

choosing what is right for you #6: Jigs. Jigs, and more Jigs.

05-04-2016 09:36 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 4 comments »

There is no question about it, ‘at some point during our trek into the world of wood working we are going to need some sort of jig, whether it is a temporary one or a permanent go to Jig. Of course if you google it, you no doubt will get flooded with every type of jig imaginable, go to you tube and you find find countless video’s to build all sorts of nifty jigs. In my wood working most of my jigs are temporary jigs. Pending on what you your self are doing you may need more than o...

Another simple little box? #2: Glue ups, just glue ups

05-03-2016 04:06 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Some went nicely…some resulted in clamps flying across the shop….Ever try to clamp up a thin panel? Finally, to stop all the hijinks going on, used the vise to hold the two flat, and then added the clamps. Had rebates to mill along the bottom edges of all four sides.. The 78 to mill it, the shoulder plane did the clean up…except for my floor, though. No longer have Igor for broom work, I guess I get to do that. laid out the recess for the shoulder plane to sit ...

Another simple little box? #1: A start up, and some finger joints

05-01-2016 03:26 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Again. Well, a trip to Lowes produced a couple of boards….3/8 by 5-1/2 wide. One was 2’ long, the other was 3’. Laid out the two planes that will go into the box. Needed a length and a width..But, before too much got done, decided to clear the deck, and clean it up a bit…. Seems it has been abused lately.. Anyway, once I got a length, I could grab a crosscut saw and saw to a line.. Just barely leaving the line.. Hey, the original “Cordless...

Hand Tool Driven Lowboy Build

04-28-2016 01:15 PM by OrangeElk | 4 comments »

The following is intended to document my process for building a lowboy. The build is primarily done with hand tools but I did end up using power tools as the project got going. This build was for a independent study so I had access to the university lab’s machines. The lowboy I chose looks like a transition piece between William and Mary to Queen Anne. This low boy was featured in PWM by Glen Huey, but I never ended up reading the issue, I made the plans from pictures. Starting the p...

Slow Days at the Shop. #8: My Version of the Chisel Plane

04-24-2016 08:13 AM by fatman51 | 4 comments »

Admittedly, Tow Mater chairs and well executed portable work benches are both more interesting and practical than my fancy decoration but I am always happy when I build a tool that is received well by my woodworking peers. This chisel plane project is particularly special to me because where I have had several occasions to want one, I have never been willing to purchase one, nor had it occurred to make one until I saw that several other Lumberjocks have made their own and done a nice job o...

Just a simple little box... #4: Getting close to a finish line, now

04-23-2016 02:56 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

But, had quite a bit of work to do first.. Lid came out of the clamps..voids on the ends filled. Gaps filled and sanded. Had one filler piece pop out, back into the clamps it went. Got set up for the bottom rebate, used a Wards 78 to mill it. Had to milled a few grooves to add the cutter storage dividers. Needed two narrow dados. Thought I’d try the 45 to cut them…. Couldn’t get the skates close enough. Could only get one of the spurs to move. Square and...

Just a simple little box... #3: Grooves, a top, and more grooves

04-22-2016 12:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, was able to sneak downstairs to the shop for a few minutes this morning….figured out how to make a skinny board get wide enough to make the top of this box. Lengthwise, was twice as long as I needed, no biggie. Mark a line at the mid point, square it (almost) across, and cut the line. Then, I need to know how wide the panel needed to be…..a few marks later, a rip cut, and I had two pieces ready to glue up. Spread a bit of glue, rub the joint back and forth a couple t...
