Pine tool box, Stanley Style #3: In and out of the clamps

01-20-2016 04:23 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Busy day….busy,busy,...busy…had a bunch of clamps lined up, Elmer’s was awaiting to go. had a small “acid” brush to spread the stuff around, and a BIG hammer to assist. One would think that the glue would let the parts slide together better…..nope. After banging things into place, and making even a Squid blush….Finally got it glued up. I did check for square….just wasn’t any room to add THAT diagonal clamp… Now, about tha...

Humidors #4: Humidor # 2 - Learning from my mistakes (Bubinga and Walnut)

01-18-2016 04:08 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

So after being so careful with my first humidor only to screw it up on the hinge install, I tried a few different techniques on some scrap for installing the hinges than decided to build another box. This time I decided I would do mitered corners with veneer splines for strength, since I didn’t want to mess around with edging. I had a beautiful piece of quarter sawn Bubinga that had been sitting on my rack for a few months now, begging to be turned into something. I decided it wanted...

Few years back, salvaged parts from an old Meersman Coffee Table I found on a trash pile. had some black Walnut, and basically rebuilt it. Aprons were saved to be patterns, Legs cleaned up and reused. Let the GrandBRATS us it up in their room…....finally got the table back to my house… Yeah….Base was loose, missing a few screws. Will fix that after a bit. Markings in my finish!!! Crayola finish?? Well, decided that that mess just had to leave….Coarse ...

And that is about it. wasted half a day with a Migraine…..kind of hard to work with half the body going numb. About evening or so….dug out some toys…saws? Front one is a rip, back one is crosscut. I even put a NEW blade in the old Atkins No. 50 coping saw! other tools? Well there is a Ohio Tool Co. hand plane there, a chisel or two, a mallet. Somewhere back there is a square or two, and a Stanley No.90 shoulder plane. Still trying to get that one tuned up just...

Butterfly Dining Table #7: Cutting, Sizing and Framing the Top

12-18-2015 12:21 AM by Guy Dunlap | 9 comments »

In this video, I cut the three pieces that make up the top that totals 8’ when fully expanded. I also show how to install the butterfly hinges for the folding extension.Then I cut corners off and prepare the lumber for the solid wood frame along with making a solid “inlay” detail around the entire top. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Instagram – https://instagram.com/guyswoodshop...

Walnut slab leftovers? #2: Making a top, and other parts...

12-14-2015 03:33 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, when last seen, the top was sitting in a bunch of clamps…... Got rid of the clamps today. Underside of the top needed some work… This was after hitting the blank with a cambered jack plane, going straight across the grain. Used the #4 to finesse the flat spots. Even tried the #4 on some end grain.. wasn’t too worried bout the ends at the corners. had something in mind for them. Used another “Dose Cap) to draw curves at all four corners. Then ov...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #65: Solitaire

12-13-2015 06:17 PM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

After the successful completion of Chinese Checkers it was time to get on with Solitaire, then I will be able to play when I am ‘Billy No Mates’! We played the Chinese Checkers yesterday, and it went down well, I thoroughly enjoyed it. For some reason since moving from Spain where I watched TV all the time, we very rarely watch it here in Colombia, so games are a good way to fill spare time. In the same way as the previous game, I downloaded a template and printed it off to siz...

maintence maintece and more maintence #1: My preferred rust removal.

12-11-2015 09:35 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

If you own any tools, you inevitable will run into rust at some point, or if you by a used rusty tool, removing rust can be difficult in some cases. Of course there are countless ways to remove the rust, all of them requiring some form or another of good ole fashioned elbow grease. I found in most cases what works well, is Wd40, 60 grit Aluminum Oxide sand paper, and a good palm sander. On my drill press this is all I used, these are the steps1st I took some disposable shop towels and wiped o...
