Dice Mallets #1: Get a handle on it

08-29-2018 12:15 AM by EarlS | 9 comments »

For the 2018 Summer Mallet Swap I made a “dice” mallet which was well received. Since I wasn’t doing much this summer I decided to make a batch of mallets and write a blog detailing the process. These are the original set. The heads were made from African Blackwood, with cherry pips, and accent strips of Bloodwood and Bubinga. One handle is Zircote and the other is Brown Ebony. Since I didn’t expect to make more of these I didn’t keep the scribbles I ...

A simple Pine Stool #3: Day #4, glue ups, clean ups, and a PIP?

08-26-2018 04:57 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

4 days to build a simple, little stool? getting slow?Ok, wasn’t too happy with the surface left by the spokeshave…..ran this router around, with the smallest round-over bit I had.. Even rounded over both the top and bottom edges of the top… And, each part was sanded to 180 grit….then the glue….discovered later that one wedge was too fat…as I hammered in the two to connect the stretcher to the legs…..OOoooops. I did get all 6 wedges in place...

A simple Pine Stool #2: Day 2 and three

08-24-2018 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Both trips to the shop were a bit short….one was governed by how long the dryer needed to run…the other was until the back said STOP. Got the panel out of the clamps…and planed flat. .Still using that same old plane…Stretcher got some lines drawn on it, and sent to the bandsaw…came back like this.. Used it to lay out for two mortises.. Note to self: LEAVE the lines…better fit that way… Dry fit…also marked which way the wedges will g...

A simple Pine Stool #1: start up with some scraps

08-23-2018 04:19 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok. Had a few Pine scraps…too large for the fire pit, might as well build something…one plank was a might too narrow, and a bit too thin…..and had a big old knot.. Knot had to go…cut the “good” ends at 8” long….The other boards? A 1×10,,,had a few issues….a pitch pocket, and a knot just waiting to fall out….board #3? Also had those two issues, plus a wany edge…the 1×4 will be used as a stretcher….marked...

Shop stuff #133: Roubo build part 5

Reaching and recognising my skill limitations with hand tools, I resort to the tried and true. You have to know how to pick your battles sometimes. I thought I was beat, turns out I just needed a break to rethink the situation. Not everything turns out as hoped, but success is where you take it. View on YouTube

Maple Frame & Panel Box #8: Handles installed, case is varnished

08-12-2018 08:57 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And about ready to post as a Project. Handles went on…using the same Yankee #41 push drill to do pilot holes.. Big handles on the ends.. Went with this for the lid. Shellac applied to the lid, and a few spots that I missed earlier…. Needed a way to hold this lid opened, like this….without using something to prop it open.. Some black chain, cut to length, and a pair of the smallest cup hooks I could dig up… Once I got the final length ( missed it by ...

Princess Daybed for Daughter #9: Project Complete!

08-11-2018 04:09 PM by JohnMcClure | 2 comments »

After the last entry, we took some time to weigh our options. We decided to keep the bed for now; if I make a smaller, regular-style bed in the future, we’ll sell this one if possible. My mom is making some bumper cushions to fill in the gap around the mattress. All we needed were the ball finials, and touchup paint. But the ball finials needed a transition piece – wouldn’t look right screwed into end grain. So I made these: And realized they looked so good, the ba...
