After a loft bed build, I had four 4×4s left over. Boss finally told me to get them out of the Dinning Room! OK, Laid some lines out, and tried the bandsaw Cuts seemed to go which everyway they wanted. Tried to get them close to the lines….Figured I could at least plane them close to flat.. A Corsair #5 Scrub Jack got things almost flat, then a longer plane tried it’s luck… Stanley No. 7c…...Got three boards planed close to flat, and had a few mor...
Happy New Year! I spent the day editing more video and got part 3 of the essential oil rack done. Designing on the fly and making changes as I go. Still more video to edit so stay tuned! View on YouTube
This time I mark the layout for how the butterfly hinge is going to be installed. Then I use a steel rod and bushings to create the hinge mechanism. This all gets installed into the support system of the table so the leaf will store under the table when it is not in use. I also show how I add the splines to the edges, and a cool way to hide the end grain of the splines. Then I level the table halves, then the leaf to the rest of the top. Almost complete! As always, I welcome your questio...
I have startide to build a hand plane and saw storage.
With the holidays over and the house starting to return to normal I took the time to edit some more video on the essential oil cabinet I made for my son for Christmas. A lot of hand work over a lot of days, and a long time to edit it too. View on YouTube
The start of building a Christmas present. Getting thing roughed out and thinking about sizes. I opt for hand tool work many aspects and use machines for things I don’t want to take a chance on. There are certain places that the machines are still required. I don’t think I will ever get rid of them and go totally hand tool, but I keep experimenting to build my skills. Also, trying to embed the video for the first time, we will see if it works. View on YouTube
In this video, I cut the three pieces that make up the top that totals 8’ when fully expanded. I also show how to install the butterfly hinges for the folding extension.Then I cut corners off and prepare the lumber for the solid wood frame along with making a solid “inlay” detail around the entire top. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Instagram – https://instagram.com/guyswoodshop...
Before I got tired of fighting things. IF I got too angry in the shop…..time to quit for the day. better luck the next day, right? Anyway, I had the aprons to mill into something usable….I hope. Ends needed cut at an angle ~@ 15 or so degrees…closer to 10, maybe. I used the bandsaw to cut the ends…..too much stuff in the way to use the mitrebox…plan so far is to splay the legs out a bit, almost like a Tavern table. Was trying to figure out how ...
Table n;eeds legs, right? Didn’t have enough walnut to make any decent ones…..I did have a slab of white oak, though…..Had to haul it to the shop, first. Today, did a couple crosscuts. Used the Vintage saw for this job….going to be a power tool day.. This is set up for the second cut. First cut was to trim the end as square as I could…left this piece as a cutoff.. Second cut, I had a clamp back at the rear, to keep things from moving too far. This...
Ok, when last seen, the top was sitting in a bunch of clamps…... Got rid of the clamps today. Underside of the top needed some work… This was after hitting the blank with a cambered jack plane, going straight across the grain. Used the #4 to finesse the flat spots. Even tried the #4 on some end grain.. wasn’t too worried bout the ends at the corners. had something in mind for them. Used another “Dose Cap) to draw curves at all four corners. Then ov...
