Hello. Today I’ve been working on endcaps for the shoulder vise. I started by routing the grooves in the spacer block and in the doghole strip for the spacer block. I then squared up the end of each end cap for the shoulder vise and laid out and cut the tail on the long end cap with the bandsaw. I then transfered the tail and cut the pins with a jig on the bandsaw. And after a little fitting… I then put the rod through the top and clamped the spacer bl...
Here is so more construction and the finished product of the separating coffee table.
In the following post, you will be able to witness the birth of a Blue Gum Jolly Roger Board… I picked up this rough bit of Blue Gum from a mate… It needed to be dressed and thicknessed and would not fit through the 15 in model I have… So out came the TWC… It was to be 25 mm [1 inch] thick but I think something like this should be a little thicker.. 37 mm [1 1/2 inch] Ripped it on the table saw… actually it was a cross cut… but ripped it ag...
Yesterday – as most days – were filled with fun and adventure. I would say too, but my definition and your definition of the word ‘excitement’ are probably a bit different and what I would consider exciting, probably would even register on your radar. Yes, I live a life that is a bit unusual it seems. I spent the better part of the morning picking around the new software on the site Once again my theory that change, no matter how uncomfortable it may seem at th...
Hello. This morning I took the clamps off the glue up assembly and scraped the glue squeeze-out off. The joint turned out nice and the top surfaces are all within a 1/32” of being flush. I then chamfered the dog holes and laid out were I wanted the holdfast holes to be. I placed all but the first and last holes, flush to the front of the dogholes, so I can place a batten across a bench dog and holdfast. They are also positioned so the holdfasts reach the edge of the b...
Still working away on this, but I try to go slowly at times to make sure I see things that need to be changed. I sometimes rush through things and don’t always pick up on mistakes until after they are finished and sitting on a shelf. Some people recommend looking at your work in a mirror to help pick up on problem areas, but I often see things in photos of my work that I don’t always see when holding it in my hand. So I am trying to correct a few details. Someone may have mentione...
I am not really big on surprises. Not that I am a party pooper or anything like that. I just like things in order and organized and surprises usually blow even the best laid plans out of the water. Little things I don’t mind. But for the most part I like to see what is coming and be able to plan for it. Maybe it is because I am so careful at how I allot my time. There is always so much to do and it is sometimes quite a challenge to accomplish everything. Throwing even a small c...
Hello. I have just finished joining and glueing up the two doghole strips and the top slab. First I milled the 8 3/8” wide slab top to length by crosscutting it roughly and using a router with a straight bit and straight edge to square it up nicely. With the two doghole strips I crosscut them on the table saw. I was impressed to find the saw made an almost perfect finish on the endgrain. I then marked where the threaded rod will go and marked out the position of the dog holes which a...
