Coughing jag last night, pulled a few things under the right shoulder blade…..might be a little limited today… Kept the size of the planes small…nothing bigger than a jack plane… Leg blanks were a mixed lot….needed planed to remove the saw marks, and try to get them all the same size…around 1” square. Beltsanding center to smooth the curved sections….finally got all four to match each other.. Not perfect, but they will do….even ...

Simple Bedside Table #3: Connecting the legs

06-03-2018 05:34 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had the tenons on the aprons done… And ran the Stanley 45 along two edges, to form a bead. One side, then stand it up on edge, to complete the bead. Outside corner on each leg also got a bead detail…Laid out for the mortise..Gather up the tools to chop the hole.. test fit the tenon.. Until all parts could be dry fitted together. Top got “rounded” And set aside….after a glue up.. Found the flattest spot in the shop’s floor, and go...

Bed Frame, out of Pine #6: Headboard work, test fits

05-24-2018 09:00 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took the footboard upstairs to the bedroom, to see IF it fits….the way things were going, I wanted to make sure.. Looks like it will fit…went back to the shop, and took the headboard apart….rails needed a bead.. They needed sanded and I even ran a roundover bit down the edges… Tenons on the ends,needed fine tuned.. Mainly the endgrain…was a bit out of square…chin powered the chisel, not a hammer.. Rails were done, sanded to 180 grit, and set...

Dutchy Excavator Build #2: Adding uniformed rounded ends to track parts...

05-22-2018 03:01 PM by darkmyble | 9 comments »

Hi folks.. I’m cracking on with the Dutchy Excavator and been working on the tracks. Parts B & C are exactly the same except that part B has a 2mm hole and parts C has a 2.5mm hole. The issue I was having was making the rounded edges to both parts B and C. I was knocking off the corners with the bench sander and then sanding them round with my proxxon pen sander.. it wasnt brilliant to be honest. Uniformity is the key.. and for me this is a huge build, and if i’m goi...

2 Car Garage Wood Shop Tour

05-21-2018 10:26 PM by wrenchhead | 7 comments »

I recently looked at the pics of my shop from a few years ago and thought it would be fun to document the layout of my shop now. Here is a tour and layout of my 2 car garage woodshop. I go over my woodworking equipment, what i like, don’t like and what I want to upgrade to in the future. It’s a little long so there are time marks when I talk about each tool in the description. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdgtdxMRqok

Dutchy Excavator Build #1: Tracks...

05-18-2018 08:22 AM by darkmyble | 13 comments »

Hi folks.. I have been challenged to build the Dutchy Excavator. This will really test my skills and equipment to the max. The level of detail and precision is immense. So i thought id tackle the most tedious part first. I spent yesterday afternoon cutting and prepping some Sapele which i’ll use for the track parts. This species of mahogany is lovely and it was a great find amongst the other window frames that are thrown away after being replaced with UPVC. I have access to a loca...

Gift Projects #2: Making Cutting Boards Out Of a Single Peice of Solid Wood

05-17-2018 06:05 PM by ScottBelleri | 0 comments »

I made these paddle-style cutting boards out of solid 6/4” maple. This is thick enough that they shouldn’t warp, and they can be sanded down a number of times. It is called a paddle-style cutting board because its handle makes it look a bit like a paddle. The handle makes it easy to carry and hang, and also gives it a unique character. Sugar maple is an ideal wood for cutting boards because it is hard, but not so hard that it will dull your knives. Really, the only import...
