Coffee Table With Storage For Puzzles And Board Games

09-14-2018 02:48 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this coffee table for my wife. She likes to put together puzzles and usually takes over the dining room table for a week or so. Now she can take the top off the coffee table, work on the puzzle for a while and put the lid on until she has time to come back to it. I made the table out of poplar and used General Finishes Java gel stain and Arm-R-Seal to finish it up. I am pretty happy with the results although I might buff out the top with steel wool in a couple weeks after it fully har...

Calif. Prop 65, sanding pads, Amazon

09-11-2018 09:21 PM by cabbie | 7 comments »

Just tried to purchase a replacement pad for my DeWalt RO sander from Amazon. Got a notice telling me that they can’t ship it in to California due to a problem with prop 65 warnings that the dust from sanding can cause various cancers and health problems. I had to drop ship it to a relative out of state and have him send it to me via USPS.Amazon is perfectly happy to allow you to buy a new sander from lots of suppliers, as well as sanding discs of various grits, but replacement pads ...

A simple Pine Stool #3: Day #4, glue ups, clean ups, and a PIP?

08-26-2018 04:57 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

4 days to build a simple, little stool? getting slow?Ok, wasn’t too happy with the surface left by the spokeshave…..ran this router around, with the smallest round-over bit I had.. Even rounded over both the top and bottom edges of the top… And, each part was sanded to 180 grit….then the glue….discovered later that one wedge was too fat…as I hammered in the two to connect the stretcher to the legs…..OOoooops. I did get all 6 wedges in place...

Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 2 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #6: Assembled....and a forest of clamps

08-07-2018 02:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ends came out of the clamps…..test fits….weren’t that great. Decided not to cut a groove across the ends, just a notch in the bottom panel will do. Had to use a bunch of clamps, to get this thing together….one corner wasn’t going to line up….either the groove was off, or the tongue was… This was just the start of the follies…needed to add a couple cauls, to pull the ends into square…. More clamps. one on each end..Then, no...

Maple Frame & Panel Box #5: Ends are made

08-05-2018 02:18 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first..the front and back frames came out of the clamps…..not quite perfectly matched…we have ways Clamped together, back to back. Ran the #3c plane around, until they are matched up.. Set these aside, for now. Have the four corner blocks for the end frames to do….cut them all to the final length on the mite box. Gang them up into the vise, and try to get them all the same size.. One of them was having “issues”. Had a bit of trouble with i...

Chest of Pine Drawers #15: Last drawer done, and a PIP

07-22-2018 02:59 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Board was brought to the shop, yesterday… Two cuts were needed to be done, to get this done to size… Once those were done, and the back set aside for a bit….I knocked the other three parts back apart, had grooves to mill for the drawer’s bottom to go into… Since these were the last of the grooves I needed milled, I could do something different for the dados Made a new jig…..set up the Stanley 45 as a dado plane.. Turns out that a #18 cutter...

Chest of Pine Drawers #13: A second drawer is done

07-20-2018 03:36 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just one more to do.Got busy yesterday….rest of the dovetails for the (NOW) top drawer were done. Had an issue with a knot right where the dado was going through… Was a bit rough on the Stanley #39. Mitre saw wasn’t cutting the walls level..was hard to see the far side.Got out a panel saw, to level the cuts.. The knot didn’t bother this saw a bit. First drawer seemed to like the middle opening better.. So the second drawer made is now the Top Drawer. ...
