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. ...

Chest of Pine Drawers #12: one drawer fitted, another begun

07-19-2018 02:08 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got the first drawer out of the clamps yesterday…..planes and the beltsander to clean things up. Had to keep working on the sides…drawer was binding a bit….finally got it to almost close….wax on the moving parts helped with that last inch….added a pair of knobs, so I could at least pull the drawer back out… Hauled both 1×8 planks to the shop. Circular saw to cut out the very bad spots…. A regular Knot Farm. Somehow managed to get en...

Chest of Pine Drawers #10: Plugging along

07-18-2018 02:26 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Was a very busy day, yesterday…..so I’ll post this in a couple episodes today. First off, needed to get the case off the bench. To do that, I needed to make a bunch of plugs, install them…and then trim them all flush…. Veritas 3/8” Tapered Plug Cutter.. It does have a bad habit of biting off a plug, now and then. I try to avoid any knots, as well….a pin knot got “plugged”, anyway…Cutter ate 2, chewed up a third, and that pi...

07-17-2018 04:43 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Trying to get caught up….from a “Lost Weekend” and a VERY BAD Monday…..somehow managed to get a back installed… The way the case was…26” wide..vs..24” wide panel…..laid the panel sideways ( 48” wide?) and cut one panel to fit. Will get the other section in a moment….you will notice I have the face frame installed. Just 6 sticks of pine.. Glued and screwed in place. I used counter-bored holes, and will fill them wit...

Shop stuff #130: Work on the shop finished.

07-16-2018 08:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Picking up where we left off last time. I build a torsion top to replace the old table and make some improvements to the function of the mitre saw. It also gives me a place for some future drawers. Then I get everything put back in place and the shop functional again. View on YouTube

OK, today…hauled any and all clamps that were upstairs to the shop ( yardsale finds) and a few other goodies…Got the panel for the top of the case, cut to size….once al...

Chest of Pine Drawers #3: Frames are done, 1/2 the dovetails, too

07-03-2018 02:51 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Got home, took the new box of screws to the shop…looked around, found the almost full old box sitting in plain sight…gotta be Gremlins down here. Maybe it is them huge spiders? I worked for a while, before I remembered ...

Spring Bench #1: Building a bench around an 1800's wagon spring

06-30-2018 03:26 PM by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

My friend Leon Kytle in Idaho Falls gave me this old spring from a wagon seat from the 1800’s and asked me to design a bench around it and give him the plans so he could build one too around the other spring. I drew it up in Arizona with the bend up and down and decided it looked better with it bent down. I made us templates of the spring curve and gave him a drawing of how I was going to make it. But when I got home he called and said he thought the spring should be wider for stabil...
