Bed Frame, out of Pine #6: Headboard work, test fits

05-24-2018 09:00 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took the footboard upstairs to the bedroom, to see IF it fits….the way things were going, I wanted to make sure.. Looks like it will fit…went back to the shop, and took the headboard apart….rails needed a bead.. They needed sanded and I even ran a roundover bit down the edges… Tenons on the ends,needed fine tuned.. Mainly the endgrain…was a bit out of square…chin powered the chisel, not a hammer.. Rails were done, sanded to 180 grit, and set...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #23: Rounding Parts and Establishing Plug Locations- Part 1

05-24-2018 01:37 AM by TungOil | 2 comments »

With the lower stretchers rough cut and the cloud lifts formed, I move on to some of the detail work. First, I round over the edges of the lower stretcher parts with a 1/8” round over bit in the router table. With the rounding complete, I compare 3/16” and 1/4” square ebony plugs for size on the lower stretcher. The 3/16” plug looks better to my eye so I cut 3/16” square holes in all of the stretcher parts using the Lee Valley square punch. Except f...

Moravian Workbench Build #2: Bench Top

05-23-2018 03:53 PM by ElroyD | 3 comments »

Those who read the first entry in my Moravian Workbench Build may recall that I had been working in our laundry room till the weather warmed up enough outside. Unfortunately, it didn’t. Winter had a hard time letting go of the northeast this year, and I was eventually forced out of my small laundry room workspace. I didn’t want to stop work on the bench though, so I retreated to our very dark, very dusty, very musty, very in need of repair basement where I began work on my be...

2 Car Garage Wood Shop Tour

05-21-2018 10:26 PM by wrenchhead | 7 comments »

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdgtdxMRqok

Bed Frame, out of Pine #4: Grooves & Dry Fits

05-21-2018 01:59 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

The 2×4 rails need all the tenons done, and a groove ploughed… Rail that had the first set of tenons done…Stanley 45 was still set up….fence needed tweaked a bit, to better center the groove…plane was still set tad tad too deep.. Nice thick curls look nice, but the plane is a bear to push…lightened the cut a bit, added a bit of candle wax,,,pushed along much better. Unlike the posts, I can run the plane all the way through.. Then laid out the set ...

This is a re edit of a video I did last year. The original was over 45 minutes long and I wasn’t happy with it at all. This one is only about 10 minutes and covers milling the slabs out of the tree with the chain saw…...freehand. View on YouTube
