Simple box to hold candy #4: Lid fixed, and fitted...PIP?

07-19-2017 01:54 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

At least until the BLO cures. Then the hinges and a latch get installed Rather a thin fix, but seems to work, also used the same wood to fill in the square holes where the grooves came through,,a look from above? Maybe a look at the end? Showing how the “patch” looks And.maybe a “front” view.. Maybe…trying to decide on which face will be the front…. Or maybe this one? I also gave the box a second coat of BLO, the first was just soaki...

Simple box to hold candy #3: Lid is cut...grooves and such

07-18-2017 04:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, I had gone out to buy a few supplies for the shop, Monday…. And, I finally found the parts for the Langdon Mitre Box’s stock holders…. Figured I could just slip down to the shop, and at least install them….something was calling … The box wanted out of the clamps….took a while to remove all of them… Looking like something the cat dragged in…top wasn’t much better.. Well, since I did buy a new 80grit belt for the sander&...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Table Saw Station #4: Casters and Base

07-08-2017 06:55 PM by Brazz04 | 2 comments »

I got some time to finish up the casters and base over the last few days. The base is now complete so when the station is lowered, it sits on a very solid base. The casters are mounted to three laminated sheets of plywood, and raised using a 5” bolt that was threaded into the plywood. The bolt then pushes on a wooden rod that extends the caster down on the floor. It seems to work well and only takes a few minutes to raise the station, move it to a new location, and lower back onto t...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #4: Top installed

05-30-2017 02:51 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just a quick catch-up…Got the blank for the top out of the clamps. Laid it up on top of the case. Marked how much to trim off. Set up the jig on the bandsaw, and cut for width. Framing square to mark the ends square, bandsaw to trim. Cleared a BIG spot on the bench,, And used the Jumbo Jack to flatten both faces. Block plane for the end grain, and make a slight bevel to the edges. Took a quarter out of my pocket, and laid out a curve on the front two corners.. Then u...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #13: Final Table Edge Routing

05-29-2017 10:55 PM by TungOil | 3 comments »

With the table edges assembled, the next step is the final pattern routing of the outside profile. I route the final shape after the edges are assembled to be sure the ellipse is smooth and continuous. I start by leveling any minor misalignment between the edges with an 80 grit disk on the random orbit sander. The assembled table top is about 1/16” larger than the outside pattern to allow for the final shaping. I use a solid carbide spiral upcut bit to get the smoothest finis...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...
