That OddLots Ad #10: A tale of three tasks to do

09-14-2018 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I set myself three jobs to do today…the second end panel needed a rebate made, to house the plywood back. Once that was done ( task #1) I could install both end panels onto the “mainframes”, and get rid of the clamps holding things together. (Task #2) and finally, needed to build a pair of frames to use with a drawer, and install those (task#3)........Got the rebate milled.. Unclamped the panel, set it in the leg vise, use the Wards (Stanley)#78 to plane the rebate&...

Treasure Box III - Post #3: New Marquetry Workshop

09-13-2018 11:23 PM by Patricelejeune | 3 comments »

One of the reason it has been difficult to keep this blog updated is that my life has slightly changed in the past months. My wife is now manager of a 19th century french painting gallery in LA.For years she has been living between LA and San Diego for her research and work, we have to switch and I am now the traveling spouse. For this reason one part of the workshop that I can easily bring with me is the marquetry workshop. I had my chevalet in my first apartment living room in France,...

Treasure Box III - Post #2: Inspiration

09-13-2018 10:43 PM by Patricelejeune | 4 comments »

I have been pretty busy working without much time for updating my blog. Like many cabinet maker I have a special love affair with a particular piece of furniture. Couple of pieces in fact, but one of them is a coffer attributed to Andre-Charles Boulle at the J.P. Getty museum. I always wanted to do a copy of it, I still will but we decided that our Treasure Box III was going to be inspired by it. The original coffer is a “simple” box with a lid, but as we like, in our...

My Dust Collector Mod #4: A little paint, a few screws...

09-13-2018 06:28 PM by BrettLuna | 0 comments »

Progress has been slow thanks to various distractions but I now have the caster base painted with Krylon “Hammered” spray paint, in black to give it a textured, industrial look. I also got the initial assembly of the chassis done: Assembly was good ol’ glue and pocket screws. Once the paint on the base has cured completely, I’ll set the chassis and dust separator in place to dial in where to mount the cone support. A complication with that is that cones are rou...

That OddLots Ad #9: Face frames, a start is made

09-13-2018 12:34 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

While waiting on this computer to wake up, and repair itself (never did….) decided to haul the rest of the Ash 1×6s on hand to the shop…. Would have been nice to just glue these three up into the top of the case….like everything else this morning, there were “issues” going on. Issue #1 Issue #2.. Kind of hard to glue up a panel with these involved. Third plank had a couple knots along one edge…Well, I could cut these down into parts fo...

Life happenings #12: The bathroom disaster.

09-12-2018 11:36 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I was debating on weather I ought to put this in here, but there is a lot of working with wood in it, along with a lot of other things, so why not. A couple of weeks ago we had a fitting fail in our master bathroom. We had to pull everything out of the room to gain access to the leak. Well, my wife has been wanting to remodel the bathroom for the last 16 years, so while everything is out of it, why not? Other than it’s a ton of work and expense. I am posting the first 3 videos, d...

That OddLots Ad #5: Side panels are done

09-09-2018 12:07 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Panel #2 came out of the clamps today. Jointed one edge straight…then got the idea to clamp panel #1 to Panel #2 And joint the edges til they matched…that was the plan….however.. With the other sides even..had this much to remove…more than “Just a little off the top”...wasn’t ready to push the No.7c THAT much…..got out an older jack plane, and roughed things down a bit.. Just to get things close.. For the other two planes to finish ...
