Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #17: Center Back Slat- Part 2

03-06-2018 03:25 AM by TungOil | 10 comments »

With all of the stock cut to length, I’m ready to move to the next step, cutting the mortises and curves. I lay out the center marks for the mortises needed by the Leigh FMT on the ends of one piece. Since the ends of the slats are angled slightly, I adjust the Leigh FMT to hold the parts at the appropriate angle. Once the Leigh FMT is set up correctly for the first piece, the rest of the parts are run without any layout work which is a real time saver when making multiple part...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #8: Part 2, the Sunday Follies

03-05-2018 04:25 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Hand tremors…PITA to do woodworking with. New meds may be the cause, will find out Monday. Anyway, this morning, I was still house, and puppy sitting….once they were done with their business outside, and laying down for their all-morning naps…I could head to the shop for a bit…had to rearrange a little bit.. Moved the case a bit ( those pipe clamps are nice, but a detriment to knee caps) so I could use the mitresaw.. Swung it over to the “45” st...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #7: Face Frame, part 1

03-05-2018 03:48 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Rough day in the shop….first trip did not go well, was making mistakes, could not concentrate on things…ran the Stanley 45 along the wrong edge…..hands were getting too close to sharp objects….closed the shop. Went back upstairs until the mind could focus on the jobs being done. Much safer that way. Did not leave any “Fresh DNA” on stuff in the shop. Kept stewing about it all day kind of got me irish up…...was finally able to calm...

Three drawer hall cerdenza #2: Determining how to detail the legs

03-04-2018 09:54 PM by Oldtool | 9 comments »

For the better part of the last two weeks I’ve been attempting to determine how to apply a bead & set-back plane to the front legs, to look something like this: My first thought was to create the side beads the length of the leg, using a simple scratch stock. This proved to be feasible, as shown here: This proved easy when referencing the tool on the side of the practice leg, but then came the semicircular portion I wanted to use. Multiple attempts failed, as follows:First ...

More tools in the shop #2: New Additions and Wiring for new machinery

03-02-2018 11:30 PM by Plasmon360 | 0 comments »

Before reading some of the electrical work I wrote in this article, please note that I am not an electrician and have no suggestions to anyone. This post is to document my experience and is not a “how to” post. As stated in my last post, I acquired a table saw (unisaw) which turned out to be a great deal. Following that I also got a heavy duty chisel mortiser, planer, and jointer from the same seller (they seem to be a good deal). I will write about them in detail in later post...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #5: Mortise work..

03-02-2018 01:22 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, mortises to house all them tenons. I used a tenon to do a layout for each mortise… I left the stile sit out a bit from the jig, for a reason.. The little Disston No.4 backsaw was used to saw the waste….open ended mortise ( they blow out anyway in Pine) but I could only saw at this angle. I tried to either stay inside of the lines, or at least split them… Then a mortise chisel to dig a hole where the saw couldn’t reach….then come in from the end...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #4: Frames, part 1

03-02-2018 12:50 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, trying to get caught up here…A while back, I was able to haul the 1×2s to the shop, and make a few cuts with the “small” mitresaw.. Should be enough parts…I hope. Set up the Larger Mitresaw’s depth stops…. Found the stock holders.. Now you know why there are those slots in the mitre box’s deck. Since I was done with the other mitre box, I put it’s saw away… That little saw will get used a bit later, I folded up t...

02-28-2018 05:59 PM by BenhamDesign | 1 comment »

Read about the play by play for the lumber rack being built below or watch it on YouTube Video recountWell my lumber storage is out of control so todays project is going to be a little different. I am going to get organized and weld up a lumber rack So what I came up with is a rack that has a maximum of 6” spacing between the shelves. This way I will never have to dig more than a few boards down to get the one I am after. I’m building the rack out of 1” sq tuning. Since I’m p...
