Stepback Cupboard in Pine #13: Drawer installed, plugs and other adventures

03-13-2018 11:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got the clamps off the drawer….needed to clean up the dovetails a bit. One place I could not get to when all those clamps were in the way..was along the back edge of the drawer’s bottom. Large square to mark a line, roughly centered on the drawer’s back….added a few screws.. Should hold things in place. Drawer front had a huge knot in it… Drilled a hole for a bolt. Then laid out the same location at the other end of the drawer front, so these match...

Shop Notes #12: Box Joints and Jewelry Cabinets

03-13-2018 04:08 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I have a chance to exhibit at a local winery in about two weeks, so I put myself on a plan to get some jewelry cabinets finished in time for the event. These cabinets were based on plans for a hanging Shaker cabinet in Fine Woodworking a few years back. I’m on my fourth generation of design iteration. These are now taller than the original and have two doors instead of one. In this go around, I’ve changed from lap joints for the carcass to box joints, which should give a cleane...

Antique Tool Box #1: Is this a joiner's Tool Box?

03-13-2018 05:52 AM by CaptainKlutz | 12 comments »

#1 Dislike blogs. This is a documentary.This series of posts was created to document a recent estate find and hopefully gather some information from the antique tool collectors that troll LJ for entertainment. Did not want to pollute the HPOYD thread and potentially lose information. Back story: I have been working wood for 40 years as a hobby. As I become more senile and slow down from my impetuous youth, have learned I like the “FEEL” of working wood and started using hand...

Small Shop Adventures #13: Hand Planing Trim Boards.

03-13-2018 01:55 AM by BrockF | 1 comment »

For the ceiling trim in my parents place I am going with 1×4 boards with a 1/2 inch square strip along the upper edge, all painted white. I am using poplar because it paints great and is such a pleasure to work with. One of the challenges I face is that the ceilings have a few spots where they are not exactly flat, either because of time or because of muddling, paint, repairs or both. This would be essentially invisible except when you try to put a trim board up. I can’t do...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #12: Build-a-drawer, 101

03-11-2018 08:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

two days to build one drawer? I am getting slow in my old age… Anyway, this may be a bit long, better get settled in…. Cut this to size..goal being to build a drawer around it. Had a couple “left-overs” for the sides, they needed to match in width and length…Length was at the bandsaw, later the mitre box. width was the easy part. Then “shot” the end grain straight..Set the sides aside for a bit. Corner joints will be through dovetails&...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #11: Top is done, case assembled

03-10-2018 03:07 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Worked in two separate sessions yesterday….had a morning “shift”, a trip to get a CT Scan on the head, then when we got back home, an evening shift….Morning stuff:Top was removed from the clamps, set aside for a while. Ripped a few 1×1s from the leftovers…needed to build out the drawer runners, for the drawer to slide on….also needed guides to keep the drawer centered in the opening… A bead of glue and a screw. Both are attached to the webf...

Shop Notes #11: A Productive Week

03-09-2018 08:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Getting my resaw blade in place really opened the floodgates this week. I finished gluing up and planing my mid-century modern boards. I also finished up some leftover chaotic pattern boards that were still hanging around from the holiday rush. By mid week, I was looking at a stack of some 17 cutting boards, ready for sanding. The chaotic boards were made 1 1/2” thick and haven’t sold well in that size. As a test, I sawed one into two 3/4” boards and ran them through ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #10: Catching up, part 2,making a top panel

Ok, got the 1×8 x 8’ plank to the shop, somehow….had the bench cleared off, and ready to do a bit of work… Saw was needed to make a few cuts….needed three pieces 27” long…lay out a cut line.. Making sure the line was hanging over the end far enough to miss the bench vise…. Was trying NOT to include this into one of the pieces.. But, to get rid of this ugly thing, I had to use it’s little brother.. We have ways…..the fir...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #9: Catching things up, face frame installed

03-08-2018 11:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Amongst other “chores”....Doctor Visits, VA paperwork, the usual distractions… Anyway, I got the mortise and tenons done this week on the face frame…even did a glue up.. Had to cut a bit away, so the beads can wrap around the openings.. Will need a little clean up. Let the frame sit a day….then started an install.. Test fit to mark where the counter-bored screw holes would go….then drilled both the counter-bores and a pilot hole at each mark....
