Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #6: Some More Carcase Joinery

04-15-2012 04:21 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 18 comments »

So there’s a bit more that has to be done before finishing the overall carcase of this wall hung tool cabinet to be, and it’s all about dados and stopped dados. Quite simply, the cabinet will be divided into two distinct parts: a lower section that has a tambor door and storage for two jack planes (cambered #5 and #62), then an upper section that has a pair of doors with ‘depth’ storage inside. So the first thing to do is create the joints for the divider as well as...

Mission Style Bed #3: Head and Footboard Assembly

04-11-2012 11:50 PM by Fraser Gandy | 2 comments »

Alright, did a lot of work the past while, even though it seems like I haven’t. I’ve been busy working!I started with the footboard, I first lined all the slats up in between the rails. This was probably one of the most frustrating parts of this whole project. Once I got them all pretty well in there, I attached the rails to the legs and that sorted out the slats for the most part. Once I did that, I noticed that my mortises and slats and stuff didn’t quite look as nice a...

Split Roubo Workbench #4: Milling, gluing and clamping - The Slabs

04-11-2012 03:54 AM by lysdexic | 32 comments »

I took my lumber for the top to Rick’s at The Woodworking Source to mill it up. What is taking my better part of 2 days we knocked out in about an hour and a half. These are some pics of Rick’s place. Its interesting that Rick does not do woodworking outside of work. He golfs because it is what he does to forget about what he does when he needs to forget about what he does. He is a professional and a great asset. ———————...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #4: Some Carcase Joinery

04-01-2012 03:23 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 18 comments »

Top joins the sides with half-blinds, so let’s clamp up and get started. Mark and cut the tails. No dovetail jigs… It’s for strength, doesn’t have to be perfect as a shop joint. Chop the waste. Gauge setting for the ‘inset’ of the pinboard, then balance the tail board to tranfer tail lines: I did place a straightedge alongside the setup to ensure the layoit ot the two pieces stayed ‘square.’ Sawing pins...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #3: Jointing the carcase stock

03-31-2012 03:06 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 11 comments »

Used the #8 to get one good edge, ‘cause the boards needed help: Measured set (max) width to repeat on each board, 10 7/8”, tranferred it to the panel panel gauge, and marked the other edges of each board… Fasten the stuff to the bench and joint it for staight and width to the scored line. #5 jack goes to town. NOW we’re good to move forward… From jointing to joinery!

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #2: Last night was a good night

03-30-2012 01:49 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 4 comments »

After a very early morning and a good day working away from my normal 40 hour a week job. I was able to spend the latter half of yesterday working on my bench. I managed to get the skirts cut, and installed. I did not glue the sides on or the top on. Here is the results…. How do you guys like that Japanese angle guide. It was worth the $55 I paid for it, and will never leave my toolbox. The bottom picture shows how my bench is different from Mr. Sellers’...

Transitional restores #2: Transitional restore the dw way.

03-27-2012 01:57 PM by Don W | 11 comments »

A transitional bench plane can be a pleasure to use and they just look really cool. I’ve restored several, and each one tends to bring on a new challenge. Its a restore of wood and metal parts. Its not that hard to transform these into fine performing tools that are pleasing to the eye. First thing I typically do is take everything apart and place the parts in a container. I will often be restoring more than one plane at a time, and it is easy to start forgetting what part goes w...

Stanley 45 Restoration

03-25-2012 02:42 AM by Buyerboy | 1 comment »

I have several Stanleys…45s and 55s. Currently working on the restoration of my Type 7B, 45 from 1897. I have the original chestnut box.. the original 20 cutters, the plane and other attachments. The blades were easy.. a brass brush on my drill took off the light surface rust and left the patina… I’m more concerned with the plane body and other attachments that appear to have been nickel plated but are quite dirty. Did not want to use the wire brush on those items. Does anyo...

Planner marathon or Saw dust-a-palooza

03-24-2012 12:20 AM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

The last three days I have been doing nothing but running the planner and joiner creating eight 30 gallon bags of saw dust and I still have another days’ worth left. The big question is what to do with all of that saw dust? My father told me to ask the high school baseball coach if he wants it. I guess that they used to put it on the in-field to absorb the water after it rained. I will let you know what I find out because I know that we all have problems getting rid of saw dust. I have 95% of...
