Sept 4 2010I have started a pair of night stands for our bedroom after they are done I will make the bed head board and a foot board with a TV lift inside so here is the start of the project I tend to get caught up in building and not take the time to document and take photos. I have a bit of free time on my hands because my wife is out of town for thee weeks on business. Let the project begin. As I’m sure you can see this is the stock I am using to get started. The other picture is te...
i posted my cutting board that I made to practice edge gluing with
So here is my start of the restoration of the Stanley #3 and #4. I picked these up after going to pick up an air filter from a guy on Craigslist and low and behold he had a few planes he didn’t mind selling me for $15 for both. I’m going to try and include some videos on here as well since I know we all love seeing those! My goals are to bring these beauties back to life bright and shinning and creating some paper thin shavings. The blades look decent still and after cleaning w...
I have a fully joined carcase with partitions for five drawers, but it’s only got two sides, a top and a bottom. ie: it needs a backside! Options I’ve thought about include a series of half-lap boards nailed into a rabbet at all four edges, and a floating frame and panel. Because one of these is necessarily more difficult to do than the other, you can likely guess which one I’ve chosen… I started work with material selection. For the frame I’ve used a pretty non-descript (re: crappy) piece...
I spent the morning at the drill press working my way up 1/16” at a time from 1/4” up to 1” for the screw to feed through into the hand wheel. The larger the bit got the more difficult it became but if you go slow and don’t try to force the press it goes pretty smoothly. Make sure you have your pilot hole absolutely centered before you drill. Mine was oh so slightly off and it became very noticeable the larger the hole got and that took some doing to mill it close...
Thought you might like to see the progress tonight over at my blog.
My Dad came and visited me back in June and he helped me get started on this. I bought the porter cable router 7518 and a nice big raised panel bit to go with it. I thought I would start by building the panel first and then the frame around it. The reason I did it this way was because I didn’t want to go and buy more and more wood without using what I had so I took two of my more wider boards, cut them in half lengthwise, and edge jointed them to make two panels. I don’t have any ...
Yo whats up everybody so I got a call from my grand mother in Detroit and she asked me if I could make some crosses for her. My grand father is a priest in Detroit and she needed some for sunday school so I said ok how many you need and she was like 150 now it takes me about 5 minutes to make 2 crosses because I cut it in half. That includes cutting out the pattern and sanding it and staining it now I have already finished about 50 and they need them by September so I hurry up. I get about 3...
I don’t know why, but I think the long, cold winter has me longing for spring. Today is the first day of the week that the sun is shining, and there is not a cloud in the sky. While there is still a touch of frost on the grass, I find myself being grateful for each day that passes with no snow. It may seem funny to be thinking like that in April, but for most people this year has been particularly brutal. I personally love the snow, but I think that even I have had my fill and am ...
