#0 Sicar woodworking 5 in 1 machine

04-21-2013 06:21 PM by Dutchy | 1 comment »

Hello, Many years i did my sawing work on a festool table saw. I loved the machine but a heavier one was welcome. I also had a small chinees planing machine. I solded both and for the money i got i could almost buy an old europeen SICAR 5 in 1 machine. I considerd buying a new chinees combi but the sicar is an italian build machine from 1995. It has three motors each 3 KW (380 Volt) The machine was/is in bad conditon. Weight 495 Kg. From time to time I will tell my progression. When I ...

Vermont Lap Desk, almost done:

04-20-2013 05:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With the sides all nice and coplanar, time to mill a rabbet for a bottom. Set up a router with a 3/8” rabbetting bit, and ran it around the edges. Squared the corners with a chisel. Now, I get told there is to be a divider in this desk. Hunt around for a piece of scrap wood to make the divider. I also needed a dado for it to be installed. So, I laid one out, about three inches from the front. handsawn, and then chiseled to remove the waste And repeat for the other s...

Roubo #8: It's Done!

04-14-2013 09:49 PM by bondogaposis | 13 comments »

This is the grand finale. Here I’m doing the final leveling of the top. It was a ton of hand planing and sanding. It’s not perfect but not too bad either. I only sanded to 100 grit, I don’t want a slick surface. Now onto applying finish. I used a simple mixture of 1/3 MS, 1/3 BLO and 1/3 spar varnish. Next up is to apply suede to the vise chop and wagon vise and dogs. I used contact cement. That was the last step and here is the final product. ...

My Kids wanted me to make a tree swing for them. So, here is what I came up with. It’s 16” in diameter and about 1 1/4” thick. I made out of 2×10 construction lumber. I also put some clear plastic tubing around the rope for grip and comfort. Here is the process I went through tho make it. Enjoy! Don’t forget to like and subscribe. :) Thanks for watching.

Vermont Lap Desk: Starting up

04-13-2013 08:02 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Let’s see, already had a plank that could be a lid for the desk project. And I still had some lumber left over. Not the prettiest stuff, though The smaller plank looked about the same. Smaller one was just enough to make one side piece with a sloped edge, and a flat area on one end. Used this as a pattern for the other side piece There was a few items there that i had to work around. There was a crack running the length of the board, and a bid, old knot Hand saw...

How Nice Ash Planes are made: A Big Ash load

04-11-2013 06:46 PM by rhett | 4 comments »

It starts with wood, ash to be exact, grown and logged here in Kentucky. This is one of the rare occassions you go out looking for a big ash.Here we see Holger, the logger, cutting lengths of ash down to size. His crew drops marked trees and drags them out to stage. After they are seperated by species, they are cut to the sizes ordered.With the help of a CAT, logs are carefully loaded. Chech out that fat ash on the trailer! Next stop, the sawmill…..

two boards, and some hand tools, part two

04-11-2013 05:37 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

I have a pair of rough sawn boards. These were cut offs from a longer plank. Thinking about a writing desk. So, these two will be milled down into the sides. A look at what I started with Board number one. And Board number two. The really bad edges were taken down to smooth with a cambered jack plane It is a Red Plane because it is a Corsair #C-5 Jack plane. Got the edges down to almost cleaned off, time for something a little bigger? Like a #6c Small Jointer. ...

Two boards, and some tools: working down some rough sawn wood

I have two planks. One is a Black Walnut 4/4 by 6” by 30” long. There other? Well, here is a clue Lovely, ain’t it? More on that one in a bit. I went after the Walnut plank, looking to smooth the faces of it first. A little time with a #6 small jointer, and a #5 Jack plane, and one face was ready for a smooth plane Bandsawn from a log awhile ago. Saw marks were easy to clean off. The edges were a little more work. One was almost done, just had a l...
