Big cabinet for the new home #6: Its done! Wrap up, "Once you go black......"

08-03-2018 04:51 PM by Lalen | 6 comments »

Spread over three months, this thing is finally done. Quite the adventure and I learned a lot. Just wanted to share some final in-use pictures and thank those who gave input. One bit of feedback early on led me to the change of the doors from 6 top to bottom to 12 with a small upper and a lower door. I also put 3 hinges on the lower door to ensure it is well supported over time. (middle one is off center so it won’t interfere with the shelf.) For those who expressed interest in ...

Chest of Pine Drawers #15: Last drawer done, and a PIP

07-22-2018 02:59 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Board was brought to the shop, yesterday… Two cuts were needed to be done, to get this done to size… Once those were done, and the back set aside for a bit….I knocked the other three parts back apart, had grooves to mill for the drawer’s bottom to go into… Since these were the last of the grooves I needed milled, I could do something different for the dados Made a new jig…..set up the Stanley 45 as a dado plane.. Turns out that a #18 cutter...

DIY Marking Knife

06-27-2018 04:35 PM by wrenchhead | 4 comments »

My 14 year old son has been wanting to do some blacksmithing and make a knife for a while now so before i go and build a forge and buy an expensive anvil I thought a marking knife would be a good beginner project to teach him what little bits I know about metal working and some woodworking. This project required minimal tools and my son got to learn a few new skills. I had a blast spending the weekend with him in the woodshop and I think he had a good time too. Thanks for watching https://...

From cut-offs to.... #2: A day of planes, handplanes that is

06-14-2018 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

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 ...

Dutchy Excavator Build #3: Tracks complete.. moving on..

06-03-2018 09:25 AM by darkmyble | 9 comments »

Hi folks… well I eventually got the tracks finished. I’ve not been doing so well with my health so had to take a few days ‘rest’ urghhhh.. The one thing I like about this plan is it’s easy to follow and concise. More so than any others. Despite being a relative newcomer to the world of model building I’ve amassed hundreds of plans. I have to say these plans are far superior in every way. Right so finishing up the tracks was a fairly straightforward pr...

Sharing shop vacs between power tools.

05-30-2018 09:10 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 16 comments »

Boys and Girls, While this may be old hat to most, I’ve had enough friends (another one today/yesterday) saying that it’s a good idea, so I thought it might be worth a shout out. If you have a shop vac with an automatic outlet and share it amongst a number of tools during the one session, bridge the two with a power outlet plugged into the dusty. You can then plug each of the power tools into a spare outlet and give them all access to the dusty without dancing the power point shuffl...

Bottled sawdust

05-29-2018 10:02 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 6 comments »

Boys and girls, I just finished watching another one of those videos where the author advises the use of sawdust in the glue squeeze out to create that seamless join especially when you finish up using a zig saw instead of the zag saw… GREAT TIP! Now if you are like me, there is never enough time to finish clamping before the glue starts to set, let alone go foraging for enough sawdust to mix into the squeeze out/gaps… and sometimes I have craters. If you are a clean freak… OOPS, the s...

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...
