Maple Chest of Drawers #4: Stile number two

07-28-2017 02:38 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Finally caught up…..I wanted to at least get Stile number 2 done…..or close to it, before the thumb called a halt. This one did have a decent edge, just needed the saw marks removed.. But,,,the other edge needed a lot of work, which made a lot of shavings. I tried to use the Stanley No.8 , could not get a decent grip on it. Went with the 0-7 again. The good edge barely needed any work.. So I decided to use that for the groove. Tried it while still in the crochet...

Maple Chest of Drawers #3: Stiles,aka corner posts

07-28-2017 12:00 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, earlier, I had resawn a 4/4 plank into four “posts” ......not the best looking ones on the block…lots of saw marks, and wavy cut lines. I used these items to correct a few things….the metal yard stick is a Tinner’s Rule. Nice if you made tin cans for a living. Calls out every size needed to make whatever container you’d need….also makes a nice straightedge.. Has more waves than the Navy….the other edge was quite as bad.. Ther...

Maple Chest of Drawers #2: Rails and things

07-27-2017 11:33 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Still playing catch-up…...rails.. First, needed to plane away the saw marks, and get them all about the same size.. As it turned out, the plank the main rails came from, was almost a 1/16” thicker than the stiles. Back into the vise they went. The Stanley No.4c was able to remove the unwanted stuff, fairly easily. And no tear out, even across a knot.. The top rail will wait for a bit. The bottom rail will need a single groove milled, the other three main rails ge...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #18: Clamping Cauls, Finger Joints and Square Plug Stock

07-24-2017 03:39 AM by TungOil | 8 comments »

In preparation for the glue up of the angled joints in the two bases, I make up some special clamping cauls. The cauls allow me to position clamps to pull the mortise and tenon joints together parallel to the tenons. The cauls have a 60 degree block glued to them to complement the 30 degree angle of the joints. Each has a piece of sandpaper glued to the back to prevent slipping. There are 6 large cauls for the lower stretchers and two small ones for the top stretcher. To check ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1846: Catching Up

07-20-2017 12:25 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

The longer I am away from blogging, the more projects keep piling up and the more overwhelmed I feel about writing again. It is funny how that works, isn't it?I didn't realize how long my break from writing was until I received several emails from some of you who were somewhat concerned about my absence. I very much appreciate being missed, and I promise I will do my best to try to post more regularly. It is just that sometimes getting back into a routine can be tough. I certainl...

Simple box to hold candy #4: Lid fixed, and fitted...PIP?

07-19-2017 01:54 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

At least until the BLO cures. Then the hinges and a latch get installed Rather a thin fix, but seems to work, also used the same wood to fill in the square holes where the grooves came through,,a look from above? Maybe a look at the end? Showing how the “patch” looks And.maybe a “front” view.. Maybe…trying to decide on which face will be the front…. Or maybe this one? I also gave the box a second coat of BLO, the first was just soaki...

Simple box to hold candy #3: Lid is cut...grooves and such

07-18-2017 04:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, I had gone out to buy a few supplies for the shop, Monday…. And, I finally found the parts for the Langdon Mitre Box’s stock holders…. Figured I could just slip down to the shop, and at least install them….something was calling … The box wanted out of the clamps….took a while to remove all of them… Looking like something the cat dragged in…top wasn’t much better.. Well, since I did buy a new 80grit belt for the sander&...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #17: Completing the remaining mortise and tenon joints

07-17-2017 04:04 AM by TungOil | 7 comments »

With the first set of mortise and tenon joints finished its now time to complete the remaining mortise and tenon joinery. To maximize strength, I cut a double 2” tenon in my stretchers and aprons. The tenons are offset to the outside to maximize the tenon size on the 30 degree angle. The Leigh FMT Pro handles angled tenons up to 30 degrees easily. There are six angled joints on each pedestal base. Any error in the angle of the setup will be multiplied across the...
