Life as an Amateur Woodworker #28: Carport

10-14-2014 12:41 AM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

I recently decided that I would retire gracefully from motorcycling, I bought a new bike in March and have only done 500km due in part to the weather, and probably more importantly due to the horrendous standard of driving in Colombia, there isn’t a day when I am out in the car that I don’t pass at least two accidents involving motorcycles. So the bike is being sold, and I have purchased a 1982 Suzuki SJ, which I am more than happy with, but it came with it’s own problem...

I started working on my sheet good storage system. For a small shop, this is ideal! When you don’t want to use it, you just fold it up and get it out of the way! See the first video in the series on how I made it!

The Masters Slave #2: Plan & Design

10-06-2014 08:12 PM by Obed | 1 comment »

Not being the most creative and obviously skilled I have taken up a huge project that I am hoping will make things functional and smooth for every project to come. I recently acquired a Dewalt planer DW 733 and a DW 745 for 350.00 in great condition from a close friend. My hope and plan is to do right by him and use them until they die or I die. The goal a large “L” shaped work station that will house a table saw area, compound miter station, planing section, router station and ...

Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #1: Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #1

10-02-2014 08:05 PM by exelectrician | 3 comments »

I received a set of Stanley 750 chisels for my birthday months ago and decided that they and my planes needed a place that was easy to get to and easy on the eye.Pictures are worth more than a thousand words. I started with the plane till so I could get a general idea of the size of the cabinet.Then using No3 (third grade cherry) boards planed down to 820 thou I edge joined using biscuits narrow boards to get up to over 9 1/2” wide, after joining the boards I planed the joined boards...

Hand planes...found for a bargain, learning how to refurbish them... #2: Stanley #255 ?

09-17-2014 10:52 PM by MadJester | 13 comments »

Today I cleaned up the smaller plane from yesterday…still not completely satisfied, but it will do. I then tackled a vintage Stanley7”. Inside it is marked “C 255” and has an “x” and a “2” below that (it’s covered by the iron). Back has “Made in USA”. The blade is marked “Stanley No. 220 (13-220A) Made in USA”. Not sure if it’s actually a Stanley plane, but no matter…I have several this size that I...

Hand planes...found for a bargain, learning how to refurbish them... #1: Small unmarked hand plane refurb

09-16-2014 09:00 PM by MadJester | 12 comments »

I’m just beginning to appreciate the uses I have for hand planes now that I’m doing more projects that are not refinishing in nature…over the past nine months I’ve been collecting an assortment of different ones at yard/estate sales and clean outs…here’s the smallest one and I’m using it to practice with…I’m getting very small shavings, so I’ll have to figure out if it’s the position of the blade, whether I have it sharp enough...

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #3: Making the back rail and clamping frame together

09-08-2014 12:28 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

Turns out the next step is making the back rail, clamping it to the glued up sides, and then clamping in a spacer in order to cut out the dovetails for the top, front rail. The back rail was relatively straightforward. I joint with a plane. It is a great feeling when you get those long shavings at the end of the process. I also like the impossibly thin shavings you get when using the smoother on the face. Clamped together and ready for the next step.

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #2: SLOWLY finishing the legs, first glue-up

09-07-2014 01:13 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

This build is going slow because each piece is complicated and because the steps are a bit different than the usual fair. I also ran into some complications with my mortiser bits. But the first step of the build is now done. I marked the mortises carefully And then cut them on the mortiser. Cleaned up the mortises with a chisel—done with the mortises. I cut the double curves on the front legs (back legs were already done) on the bandsaw. With this build, the instructions ...

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #1: Design Down, Getting Legs Right

09-01-2014 05:24 PM by CharlesA | 5 comments »

This is my second project progress blog. I am a hobbyist who likes to try to build things beyond my skill set. I started this desk in the spring, then got waylaid by the live edge table I needed to finish. Today I started again. I am making a Curved-Front Desk from the Fine Woodworking plan. The first step is to do the legs. I got ahead of myself in the spring and did the shaping of the legs before I did the mortises. By the end of the week, I will have 8-10 double-curved cherry leg...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #25: Main Project on hold!

08-28-2014 02:10 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

It appears that our beloved President Santos has given us duff information, a couple of months ago, we were warned to expect El NiƱo, nine months of dry arrid weather, the last week has seen the return of the rainy season, and that is not just the odd shower, so I think our second winter of the year has arrived, which is not what I need at the moment. Unless the weather breaks and we have a decent spell, I am going to have to put the kiosko roof replacement on hold, I haven’t got suf...
