A Stepback Cupboard build #8: Updates: getting the lower unit about finished

01-20-2018 02:55 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Fighting a chest cold all week long….I was able to sand a few places, and add a seal coat or two.. I tipped the case onto it’s back, just a bit, so I could trim the plugs flush and do some sanding…. The Trimmers. Use the chisel with the bevel down, a couple taps with the hammer to pop the waste off. I try to follow the grain to keep from going too deep….8 out of 9? not too bad. Then sand the remains flush, sand the door and anywhere else that needed i...

Japanese Inspired Picture Frame Greene&Greene / Shou Sugi Ban.

01-15-2018 10:10 PM by Tomy Hovington | 3 comments »

I worked for 22 years in the steel manufacturing sector. 11 of those years were for a trailer manufacturing company. When I left I asked them for a picture file they had of the whole crew of one of the biggest project I was involved in while working there.I decided to make a Greene&Greene mixed with Shou Sugi Ban for the finish.I also made a video of the build and it is on my You Tube Channel. I’ll leave a link to it below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFcQnPI5OqM&t=27s

My Mobile Assembly/Outfeed Table and First Video

01-15-2018 04:11 AM by YesHaveSome | 2 comments »

I had always wanted to get into woodworking and video. For woodworking, space/time/money was always the big roadblocks for me. For video, I didnt really know have anything I wanted to shoot. When I got into woodworking in the beginning of 2017 I figured the two paired nicely. I’ve been in the website/digital industry for the past 10 years and also have a background as a CAD jockey. Woodworking, plans, video and website all seem to go together quite nicely so I figured I’d start a ...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #7: Assembling base

01-14-2018 04:32 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Due to the 8/4 material I used for the legs, the 4/4 aprons needed to be rebated to maintain their proportion to the legs and the integrity of the leg mortises. Machining the rebates in the long aprons was part of the reason I built the miter gauge extension, the other being the notches for the cross lap between the aprons. I completed the machining after work yesterday and fit the parts together; the fitting was minor a few swipes of a chisel and light sanding and I had a good tight fit. ...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #6: Top edge profiling, sanding, and oil

01-10-2018 05:36 AM by Reinan | 1 comment »

Sanded the breadboards in tonight, and used a 1/8 roundover bit to break the top and bottom edges of the top panel. Then added some BLO mixed 50/50 with MS to brighten it up and show it off a little. I like the way the mahogany grain aligns with the curl in the maple and I really love the quarter-sawn curly maple on the edges.

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #5: Fitting and installing breadboard end

01-07-2018 01:44 PM by Reinan | 1 comment »

Made some progress last night on the top, I got one of the breadboard ends installed. Having done this once before, things seemed better and went more smoothly than the previous time. This end took me about 2 hours to fit and install. After cleaning up the tongue and drilling the holes: I used a small fine cut square file to remove the nubs left over after drilling the 2 holes for each elongated slot. Turns out I didn’t offset one hole as much as I should have and it didn’t suck the ...

A Stepback Cupboard build #3: A face frame gets built

01-04-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok. I need to build a “face frame” to cover the front edges of the case..ripped down another plank of Ash Bandsaw to rip a couple stiles, about 1-1/2” wide. Jointer plane to remove saw marks, and make the two match each other. Needed three rails.. Mitersaw to cut those to length….ganged all three up.. Shorter boards = shorter planes. Then I needed tenons on both ends of these three.. Didn’t like these wide tenons, so they were trimmed down a...
