Pine Table Project #4: Catching up, and a drawer made

04-02-2017 02:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Beginning to dislike hand cut half blind Dovetails…...PITA to do.. This is the second one I’ve ever done, without using an electric router and jig…..Maybe after a few more, I might get decent at these? Second side is out of the clamps, legs have their beads milled And stashed over with the first side. Dovetails are passable.. Ok, besides cleaning up a new plane I traded for, I did manage to make a drawer today. First, since I am done with the bead cutter, I cou...

Mongo: my first real workbench #3: A look at joinery

03-30-2017 04:41 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 7 comments »

As I mentioned before I’m planning to assemble Mongo without fasteners. I’m not exactly schooled in the fine art of joinery but I do watch a fair number of YouTube videos and I’ve been following Chris Hall's excellent work for some time. I appreciate his unique blend of traditional joinery design and modern manufacturing methods. With the top completely laminated and glued to the tool tray, my first bit of joinery will be the ribs that support the top from underneath. The...

Pine Table Project #2: Rest of the legs and some aprons

03-29-2017 04:29 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...

Shop stool part 2

03-24-2017 02:51 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 4 comments »

Here the second and last part of the “stool in concert”. It’s just another shop stool, but was made with a lot of love. If you have not yet seen the first part, see it first to get in the right mood! (You can see and hear the complete concert on my videos). In this second part I dedicated to elaborate the seat, the final assembly and the finish. Here the wedges of the seat ! Thinking of finishes, and that this stool will be used in the workshop, I decided on wat...
