Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #7: Dulling Planes and Scraper Shaves

05-12-2011 05:12 AM by RGtools | 4 comments »

It’s been awhile since I have made any sort of update here so I wanted to say a bit of what I was up to. But first and ode to one of the unsung heroes in my shop. !https://s3.amazonaws.com/lumberjocks.com/ll2ang9.jpg! This lovely little plane just does not get enough credit. The mouth is wide, it has no chip breaker, the sole is almost flat, the sides are dented beyond all repair and yet without this little guy I could not work the way I do. As you can see I have never used this ...

Projects in process. . . #3: Pen states cyclone dust collector

05-11-2011 01:53 AM by need2boat | 0 comments »

I’ve added these entries not in order of how they were installed rather as I’ve had time. As soon as I decided to convert my old garage into a shop, space was top of the list. When looking at how best to deal with things I decided to go with a cyclone and Pen state is within driving distance and they offered free layout. The close distance really helped as like most projects of this type it required a few returns and exchanges as I changed routing of duct a bit. If anyone i...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #3: Surface Planing

05-08-2011 08:54 PM by Will Stokes | 4 comments »

In the past I’ve tried to do something new in every project, a new type of joinery, using a new tool, pattern routing, etc. This is probably one of the first real projects in a while that I’ve made a conscious decision not to do that (because this way the project will be easier and go more smoothy, right? :-) ) That said, I can’t help but try out a few new techniques to better accomplish the same steps I’m familiar with along the way. Last time it was using the jig-saw...

$40 Trestle Table #1: Rachael Ray type planning

05-05-2011 08:30 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

If you ever want to get a group of women to take notice then roll their eyes and leave. As they are talking about cooking interrupt and say “Well, according to Rachael Ray….”. Or don’t try it. They usually don’t like it. So, what does this have to do with a trestle table? Rachael does her “eat on $40 dollars a day” program. Or at least she used to. My niece is moving into a new apartment and mentioned that she would like a new kitchen table. She&#...

Roubo Cabinet #5: Panel Glue-Ups

05-05-2011 08:22 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 9 comments »

Laid out the pieces to get panels that will be the top and two sides of the cabinet / carcase, paying some attention to grain pattern as well as grain direction, to get pieces that would be visually appealing and that would (hopefully) smooth well at final finish. Here’s the walnut all laid out: I’m gluing up a total of four total panels – two walnut and two pine. Not rocket science – apply glue to both edges: Brush out, then squeeze. Walnuts were first, and one of those needed ...

Roubo Cabinet #4: Resurfacing Material

05-02-2011 09:59 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 4 comments »

With plan and materials in hand it’s time to build panels that will become the Roubo Cabinet (with pictures!) Not for the faint at heart, this entry contains extensive hand plane use that many would consider exhausting and (essentially) pointless in the modern workshop. I, of course, see things differently. Up to this point, I’d not had a project that required solid wood panels that had to be joined / assembled to this extent. So ‘gluing up panels’ had meant rail and style stuff, not what ...

My first homemade rebate plane, Thanks Div

05-02-2011 06:15 PM by lilredweldingrod | 28 comments »

Well, with all the wood planes being made and refurbished, I decided to try my hand on a little rebate plane. I chose the rebate plane to do first because I am learning Mortise and Tenon joinery and some of my tenons needed tuning. My first step was to make the blade. I picked a 1 inch spade bit after checking the prices on some A2 steel. It took a lot of grinding to flatten out the shaft and grind off the shaped drill section. I had some cocobolo that I planned to use but it was just too ...

Roubo Cabinet #1: Why and What?

04-26-2011 09:26 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 7 comments »

Twenty-five months ago I built my Roubo workbench based on plans in C. Schwarz’ first Workbenches book. I read the cautions to keep the underside of the benchtop clear of anything that would impede clamping, protruding holdfasts, etc. and finished the base with a simple shelf. I did add a small, single drawer to the underside about six months later, based on examples in Roubo illustrations, but nothing else. About a year ago I was fortunate to come across a traditional cabinetmaker’s workb...

Some upgrades for the tiny shop

04-25-2011 07:39 PM by FreddyS | 8 comments »

Hi everyone, now some small updates on the tiny shop setup: Chisel and hand planes rack: Push block for my diy jointer, also useful for the table saw and router table Sanding block made with some scrap wood, cut so I can use a 1/4 of a sheet without wasted material The router bit rack mounted on the wall next to the clamp rack If anyone is wondering why I take the extra effort for the look and finish on the racks, which are supposed to be more functional than decorative...

Wedding Clock #3: Making Panels

04-25-2011 12:31 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

It’s time to glue up the panels that are needed. I’m making a frame and panel as the back of the clock that will consist of 2 panels stacked on top of each other, held in place by the 3 horizontal rails and 2 vertical stiles. So I’ll need 2 panels for the back. Here’s one of those. Note the carpenter’s triangle that I use to keep the parts aligned. I have already glued the bottom two pieces together but we’ll walk through the rest of making this one. ...
