Mission-style mahogany desk #3: Front apron mortises done, and an assembly of the frame

06-20-2018 02:41 AM by Woodbutchery | 1 comment »

The front apron mortises are complete, and then a fit of the whole frame. I have a few tenons to adjust, some research and eventual installation of drawer frames, and a lot of practice on dovetail joinery before I make the drawers. Really happy with the way this is coming together. Happy to hear comments, as always. Thanks for looking.

Across the Bench from Charles #2: Devil's in the details

06-18-2018 03:30 AM by Monte Pittman | 14 comments »

Many things that I will probably cover are things that Charles has covered in videos on YouTube and his site. Always remember that he loves answering questions from folks and you can email him directly with them. So when I came, I wanted to dive in and learn how he does various things. So I bought a bunch of wood to build some simple projects to practice with. Boxes I always consider a good choice. You should always focus on every aspect of every project, but small projects like boxes emph...

Still sore today, decided to try to get something done Like a few bevels?The other end grain bevel was done like the first one….also used a different #4.. A #4c model….Made in England.. Cuts a might deeper than the other Stanley #4 I have….Used the Millers Falls to get things close, then the final work done with the #4. Ok, ends are done, next was the long sides… This time, it was more of holding the plane at a”skew” and going along un...

From cut-offs to.... #2: A day of planes, handplanes that is

06-14-2018 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Coughing jag last night, pulled a few things under the right shoulder blade…..might be a little limited today… Kept the size of the planes small…nothing bigger than a jack plane… Leg blanks were a mixed lot….needed planed to remove the saw marks, and try to get them all the same size…around 1” square. Beltsanding center to smooth the curved sections….finally got all four to match each other.. Not perfect, but they will do….even ...

From cut-offs to.... #1: Legs

06-13-2018 03:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, everyone has a bin for cut-offs and other scraps….never really find a use for them, right? From the Bed Frame Project…I was left with a lot of little pieces,,,and a bunch of shavings…most went out to the burn pit, to smoke away the skeeters…..I was left with these three things, way too big to burn.. 2×10 x 18” and one a tad longer. Was big enough, I had to clean the bench completely off… Amazing how fast a tool well fills up…I even...

Shop stuff #126: Fixing up my wind chimes.

06-13-2018 12:27 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

A couple of years ago my favourite set of wind chimes bit the dust. I grabbed some pressure treated fence boards I re claimed and with that, a bit of good string, a few knots and time I brought them back in a video titled “The one where I show my Ding Dong”....that’s not too much into click bait territory is it?

Pole Barn Workshop Remodel #5: Small Steps Forward

06-12-2018 04:03 PM by PoohBaah | 12 comments »

There has been slow but somewhat steady progress the last two weeks in the barn. I have been able to allot a couple hours each week to try and work on the daunting task of trash removal and demolition. It took 3 separate sessions but I have finally gotten the old feed bunk removed. You can see from previous posts the strides that have been made. It is really starting to open up the space. There is still a lot of debris, dust and garbage to clean up but all these small steps are startin...

Daves Workshop #24: Filling a hole in a medicine cabinet and refinishing it.

06-10-2018 01:41 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

I was trying to protect the wallpaper in the bathroom, so I opted to remove the medicine cabinets. One came out easy, the other had a screw the installer had stripped the head, and honestly, it just wasn’t coming out. I had to use a plug cutter to get the cabinet out of the wall…. So I went ahead and plugged it as the cabinet iwas to be painted… https://youtu.be/2FWZdVOvJNM
