Bed Frame, out of Pine #2: Joinery work, part 1

05-20-2018 04:10 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Yep, part one….otherwise this episode will be too long of a read….Need to chop/mill/ cuss places for the rails to sit.. Once I knew where the “top and bottom” of the joint was…mitre boxes made the square cuts….then this vintage saw .. Was set to the required depth of cut, and made a lot of cuts… Ever wonder why some chisels are called “Beaters”? Old wide chisel, drive it down, the beat on the side of the handle…to pop all...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #1: A start up

05-20-2018 03:35 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Have to start somewhere, right…The Boss wanted a bedframe, to enclose that metal frame thingy the mattress sits on….and the dogs keeping pushing the mattress off of….she also wants a Head Board….that she intends to add a padded fabric to a flat panel…..( and a small table to sit beside the new bed….after this is done… For once, a “Plan” was drawn out….at least as far as I do such things.. Well, for me. this is a Plan. Needed...

Dutchy Excavator Build #1: Tracks...

05-18-2018 08:22 AM by darkmyble | 13 comments »

Hi folks.. I have been challenged to build the Dutchy Excavator. This will really test my skills and equipment to the max. The level of detail and precision is immense. So i thought id tackle the most tedious part first. I spent yesterday afternoon cutting and prepping some Sapele which i’ll use for the track parts. This species of mahogany is lovely and it was a great find amongst the other window frames that are thrown away after being replaced with UPVC. I have access to a loca...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #22: Lower Stretchers

05-17-2018 02:40 AM by TungOil | 2 comments »

I start by cutting the mortises in the legs for the lower side stretchers. I then cut the mitered ends on the side stretchers and fit the length. With the side stretchers fit I move on to cutting the mortises for the center stretcher. The center stretcher has a through tenon on each end. I set up the Leigh FMT to cut the mortises in the side stretchers, then square up the ends with a chisel. I miter the ends of the center stretcher with the miter saw, then cut the square teno...

The One Minute Workbench 3.0 #1: The design

05-16-2018 06:46 AM by Sanderguy777 | 1 comment »

To paint or not to paint? So I am wanting to build a version of the one minute work bench 2.0. If you look that up on, YouTube you can see a video of what I’m talking about but basically, it holds a table saw, air compressor and a mitre saw in the table saw out feed table. My version will be only be about 4 feet long and 3 feet wide to fit my available space. I want the table saw to be the main thing but I also need space for my miter saw and since I have a tiny air compressor, wh...

Shop stuff #123: A Cute Sander Jig

05-11-2018 09:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have been meaning to make this for quite a while now. I saw a video from Chris Cute that reminded me to get it done. I have use for it coming up and it ought to come in handy. I had fun putting this together. Not much measuring involved and made from left overs. I just found what fit and put it together. The plan has been in my head for a while. I wanted something that was sturdy, yet easy to remove the sander from it. The ability to clamp it to the bench was thought of as I built ...

A Box of Fancy Pine #3: Moldings from scratch?

05-08-2018 11:51 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

OK….Moldings. Still had some of that fancy grained pine…and I wanted to add a molded bottom edge to the box… Drew a “pattern” of sorts….to lay out where each cut will go. Decided to use the Stanley 45 for the first two cuts.. Step 1 was a bead. This board was to make a pattern, for the actual molding…so I could reset the planes.. Step 2 was this “cove” cut. I had ground a profile on an old cutter, to make a trough for auge...
