A computer desk #12: Lid installed, PIP

2 hour shop time last night, 4pm to 6pm….parts for the lid were taken out of the clamps, sanded clean, and squared up. Bread board ends needed trim a bit. Found a strip of scrap that I could use to set the “meeting angles” of the lid Short section is for the top shelf. Once the angles looked decent, I could use these to set the bevel on the tablesaw The long section needed a bit of clean up, bandsaw did a wavy cut….once that was where it matched the top shel...

A computer desk #10: Been busy, need to get caught up

01-18-2019 01:00 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Where was I? Had some mortises to chop? Well, I set up the router table, to mill grooves to hold all those pencils/pens Needed a few of these chopped out. Backer strip for the pencil holder..Was going to use the thin Ash strips…..went out and bought a 1/4” thin strip of Poplar, instead.. Rather than a full width hole, I made them to accept a notched end….drawer shelf is now full depth….dry fitted Had to trim the poplar a few times…kept wanting ...

Handmade wooden kazoos!

01-07-2019 01:16 AM by TomGrin | 4 comments »

I start with a blank ¾” x ¾” x 5”. I made a little jig to drill them in the drill press. I use a 5/16” brad point bit. It’s not long enough to drill all the way through, so I have to flip them. I switch to a forsner bit and drill the hole in the body. I drill it about 1 ¾” from one end. I cut the top piece on the bandsaw with the aid of a fence. I cut them ¼” thick and 2” long and ¾” wide to match the body of the kazoo. I sand the top pieces on some sticky backed sandpap...

12-28-2018 05:32 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Finally got a day to finish the vise rehab…had to tear out the old. First, the moving part was removed… And set aside…which left this.. Layer of Pine. I had chopped out a place for the vise to sit behind….screws holding it in place were all buggered up..Chisel to split off the “veneer”, and a pair of Visegrips to remove the screws…right into a trashcan. Was able to remove the two lags from under the vise…and set them aside…with ...
