Chest of Pine Drawers #15: Last drawer done, and a PIP

07-22-2018 02:59 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Board was brought to the shop, yesterday… Two cuts were needed to be done, to get this done to size… Once those were done, and the back set aside for a bit….I knocked the other three parts back apart, had grooves to mill for the drawer’s bottom to go into… Since these were the last of the grooves I needed milled, I could do something different for the dados Made a new jig…..set up the Stanley 45 as a dado plane.. Turns out that a #18 cutter...

07-21-2018 03:09 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Still need to buy a board for the back of the drawer. Needed to clear off the bench, first.. The shavings are from sizing the front of the drawer. Still needed a couple more “swipes” for the final fit..laterEven cleaned the floor, BEFORE I got started….still had to clean it a few more times. Got moving around just after 2pm in the shop. First, the drawer front needed a groove milled. Benchdog at one end.. A jig to keep the board from sliding around...

Princess Daybed for Daughter #7: Shaping and Glueup

07-21-2018 01:09 PM by JohnMcClure | 0 comments »

When we left off, everything fit together but the legs were still blocky and square, and overly long: I decided to taper the legs toward the outside corner, bringing the foot down from 3” to 2” square, and chamfer the inside corner of each post.Rough out the taper on the bandsaw: Then plane down to the line: Finished taper: All that planing makes a pile of shavings: Crosscut the posts to length too. Cut them 3/4” above the top of the mortise. Time now to glue ...

Chest of Pine Drawers #13: A second drawer is done

07-20-2018 03:36 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just one more to do.Got busy yesterday….rest of the dovetails for the (NOW) top drawer were done. Had an issue with a knot right where the dado was going through… Was a bit rough on the Stanley #39. Mitre saw wasn’t cutting the walls level..was hard to see the far side.Got out a panel saw, to level the cuts.. The knot didn’t bother this saw a bit. First drawer seemed to like the middle opening better.. So the second drawer made is now the Top Drawer. ...

Got the first drawer out of the clamps yesterday…..planes and the beltsander to clean things up. Had to keep working on the sides…drawer was binding a bit….finally got it to almost close….wax on the moving parts helped with that last inch….added a pair of knobs, so I could at least pull the drawer back out… Hauled both 1×8 planks to the shop. Circular saw to cut out the very bad spots…. A regular Knot Farm. Somehow managed to get en...

Chest of Pine Drawers #11: Dovetails?

07-18-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ah yes, the old debate….Tails first..vs..Pins first…...Dungeon Shop goes Pins first. So.. My bevel square. There is a small combo square laying there as well. bevel is set to the angle I use for dovetails(need to write it down, sometime..) Where the groove comes through, one side of the pin is straight. Covers the groove. Then I work from each edge towards the center, laying out a few pins. had two backsaws to use, one was the “Veteran” and the other was...

Chest of Pine Drawers #10: Plugging along

07-18-2018 02:26 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Was a very busy day, yesterday… I’ll post this in a couple episodes today. First off, needed to get the case off the bench. To do that, I needed to make a bunch of plugs, install them…and then trim them all flush…. Veritas 3/8” Tapered Plug Cutter.. It does have a bad habit of biting off a plug, now and then. I try to avoid any knots, as well….a pin knot got “plugged”, anyway…Cutter ate 2, chewed up a third, and that pi...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #8: Seeing the difference

07-17-2018 03:47 PM by PoohBaah | 6 comments »

This last weekend I was able to put a solid 4 hours into the project and it is kind of nice to be able to actually see a noticeable difference. I removed the entire lover level of siding on the back side of the barn. I started slow trying to salvage what I could and damn is that frustrating. I have no idea how those guys on TV make it look so easy. I am trying to salvage enough of the good siding from the exterior to line my wood shop with then all is said and done. Yet it is a monumental tas...

Shop stuff #130: Work on the shop finished.

07-16-2018 08:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Picking up where we left off last time. I build a torsion top to replace the old table and make some improvements to the function of the mitre saw. It also gives me a place for some future drawers. Then I get everything put back in place and the shop functional again. View on YouTube
