Shop storage projects #10: That dresser build, side 2 rails are done...

01-17-2017 01:19 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, spent a bit over 2 hours in the shop today. Since the rails were all ready to go, might as well get them done. Still had the stanley 45 set up, so a lot of this type of work was done.. But, being a Monday, has having a problem with this set up. Not with the plane, but how I was holding the part to be planed….too many screw holes. Decided to address that problem.. Piece of 1×6 scrap, held flush with the top of the bench. Two screws to attach. Now, it doesnR...

Shop storage projects #9: The dresser build, side #2 is started...

01-16-2017 04:42 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

After a few other items were taken care of. Got an early wake up call this morning. Seems one of the Shop Cats caught a small Black Bat. She even brought it upstairs to show off her catch….squeaking all the time….of course, the bat got away from her. Finally trapped the little critter under a broom. And with the help of the dust pan to hold the critter, I did a Catch & Release, right out the back door of the house. Last seen, the bat was flying west, as fast as it...

Shop storage projects #8: Dresser build, side 1 is complete,almost

01-15-2017 01:18 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well spent one hour getting some things caught up….the second corner post was jack planed to remove all the saw marks, and the a Stanely#7c was run around a while..Until it was all flat and smooth. Clamped the new post to the old post, to do a bit of lay out work.. So I could transfer the dados’ locations better While I was down in the shop, and laying out parts.. I tried out the “new” bandsaw jig. Been having troubles doing resaws, so figured this could ...

Shop storage projects #7: Working on the rails....

01-12-2017 11:40 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, last night, I snuck back to the shop…did a bit of chisel work. But wasn’t happy with the results.. And decided to “daylight” the mortise into a dado. I kept the waste piece, added some glue, and a clamp, and let it sit all night.. Then today, I removed the clamp, and worked on a few more dados. Nothing fancy to them, just a lot of chisel work.. laid out to match the tenon that will go here. Last night I had #4 and #3 done. This is for #2. Wide ch...

Shop storage projects #6: Working on the storage dresser

01-10-2017 07:58 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Muddle through a bit more with that Stanley #45…..wasn’t quite right. But.. I had these four to get done, somehow. Came up with the idea that IF I drilled a hole where the tenons will be, I could then attach the part to the side of the bench, so the fence wouldn’t hit anything along the way… needed to countersink for the screws. Tried a few more times with the 45… Things still weren’t quite right. Tenons were cut on the few blanks I did get ...

The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!

The Zen of Woodworking #8: The tyranny of numbers

01-04-2017 10:41 PM by BigAxe | 0 comments »

I have decided to build a simple dovetail box to store a set of Narex mortising chisels. I am retiring these chisels from service and decided they needed a proper resting spot.In addition my dust collection system just died so I decided to build the box using all hand tools.Now a simple box has 6 sides. This means I have to dimension 6 pieces of wood. Each piece of wood has 6 sides. Simple math tells me I have to true up 6×6 or 36 sides.Now a box has 12 edges. and each edge has 2 matchin...

Roubo-ish work bench #1: Laminating the Top

01-02-2017 05:37 PM by galooticus | 1 comment »

First blog post! I’ve been making shavings for about two years now using this monstrosity vaguely resembling a bench: It’s the most incredible bench ever, measuring in at a roomy 11’ long and 36” high. Has two shelves and even supports a kitchen sink attachment, however the previous owner either didn’t spring for it or took it with them. EVERY surface is curved (great for setting planes bottom-down, no need to worry about the blade dulling) and it rocks...
