Grandson's Coffee Table #4: A start on the drawer

12-12-2018 06:06 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Had to haul the last 1×6 x 6’ plank to the shop…5 hours later, swept the shop, called it a day. Dust collector? I let the dust settle out onto the floor, sweep it up into my DUST PAN, and dump that “dust collector” into the shop’s trash can….and, when THAT get full, I empty that into the firepit, light a match…maybe roast some hotdogs.. Anyway…removed the clamps from the glue up….no creaks, no cracking sounds….must have...

Grandson's Coffee Table #3: just a glue up

12-12-2018 05:37 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

By Monday standards, it was more than enough…screws were bought….glue was spread…nothing got broke..this time Used a staged approach…ends were glued up and clamped first. Set down onto the floor…then the long aprons were added with more glue and clamps. Then these things were added, try to get things squared up Finally just set everything up onto the tops….top of the table, because the top of the tablesaw was too small.. Added a few more cla...

Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

End Table, out of Ash #6: Rails getting done

11-29-2018 06:17 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Cussing was at Marine Boot Camp Day #1 level….by the end of the day…..anyway, cleared off the tablesaw..had work for it to do. Those ugly, wavy blanks for the rails? Took two fence settings to rip the rails down to 1-1/4” width..or, about the same height as the saw blade can be raised to… Ripped the worst off one edge of each, to get an almost straight edge. Reset the fence to the final width, “straight edge” against the fence, rip to final width. ...

Managed to get about 1.5 hours in the shop, Saturday….Aprons needed to be S4S, a bead run, tenons laid out…Surfaced 4 Sides…I was going to gang things up, and joint the edges in the vise.. Nice, fluffy shavings….but, this does not get the work done… This plane like to tilt a bit, does not leave a square edge…we have ways.. Stanley No.7c, Type 9 I removed the jig parts from the benchtop…and reset a couple.. I tried the #62 on the face gra...

Shop stuff #141: Roubo bench build part 9

11-24-2018 06:50 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

A huge amount of work gets done in this one. It’s worth it though. This is how I made the legs for the Roubo bench. It also brings everything on the build up to date. I am finally caught up with editing video on it. Not sure when the next bit of work will get done. Other projects and the weather will be in control of that. Still working on the bathroom reno!

11-24-2018 06:23 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Got to looking Thursday night ( stuff in the dryer duty, again) angle of the taper didn’t look quite right…was coming out way too low….maybe IF the blanks were a bit thinner? Took about a saw blade width off the two “inside” faces..and redrew the taper….at least it will come out at the 5” mark…..bandsaw to trim the worst off….needed to build a jig to plane the tapers smooth.. This afternoon…finally was able to get a bit of shop...
