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...

Welding up a new lumber storage rack

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...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #3: side panels worked on

02-25-2018 03:28 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got both panels done, for now….one of the rare days I could spend an afternoon IN the shop.. Once I figured which face goes to which face, I stacked the two panels together, clamped them up. Then used the saw /router guide to square both ends. Then, since the panels were still clamped up, I jointed the edges… Had to use the jack plane on a couple knotty spots, then the big guy could finish up.. Less time hauling the 10 pounder around, that way. Left the panels cl...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #2: Second Panel done, and a clean up..

02-24-2018 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Second panel was glued up…. Used the old jointer again….This time around, the clamps were a bit different. Started with the middle clamp. Got all three boards in the same “plane” and made sure they stayed put. then worked my way towards the ends….the cauls were doubled up….Less marks in the good wood. Far end used a pair of Visegrip Finger clamps to hold the pair…got a little crowded. Good thing the clamp was already tightened down...

Shop Notes #9: Back to Work, Finally

02-22-2018 04:35 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

My personal projects are winding down, and I’m (almost) through the maintenance process for my shop tools. So, for the first time in a while, I was able to get down to work. Earlier this week I was finishing up the last few bits of trim for my wainscoting when my three year old DeWalt miter saw began to screech. After just replacing the lathe, I had a sinking feeling that a new saw was also in my future. However, with some help from forum members and a morning of exploratory surgery,...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #1: A start up

02-22-2018 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, seems I did so well making the last one out of Ash…now my Daughter wants one….and, since she usually PAINTS ( grrrrrr) her furniture items…..hers will get made from Pine….then I’ll hand her a brush…. There was a few design changes, as well…..the raised panel door on the lower cabinet? No longer there, open shelves (2) with a face frame around them. I still get to build the two drawers, though. upper cabinet will stay the same…

One piece furniture #1: Willow Oak wing back chair....

02-20-2018 04:56 PM by Humanbackhoe | 4 comments »

Hi all….I started cutting on an 800 pound log in October and then let it rest and re-equalize the moisture for 3 1/2 months. The last 3 days have been a concerted effort to finish, and it is shaped down to about 275 pounds. A chainsaw with a 16” bar did most of the initial shaping. Since then, a host of tools from the dark corners of my shop came into play… Thanks for seeing…Andrew
