Even got a few things done! Right after this morning’s Blog post, went to the shop. Had the panel to be raised.. Once that was done….started on the frames to hold the raised panels….Had some “leftovers” took those to the existing panels…..marked for length. Marked for width at 1-1/8” wide. Set up the resaw jig. Ran all four stiles through. Then ganged them up, after cutting a foot detail on one end.. #4 smooth plane was still out, u...

Cedar Entertainment Unit #9: Shoji screens coming together finally haha

I still have a bit of work to do on them but I can see the end of the road. I have used all traditional methods to do the joints etc on these and have learnt a hell of a lot about accurate marking and cutting, a long and quite difficult but very enjoyable task!

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

08-24-2017 07:48 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok….needed to get the last drawer DONE.. Wasn’t happy with the sides I had stash back for this drawer. Cut two sides from the maple plank the front and back came from. Atkins crosscutsaw’s turn, as I try to rotate the saws through a job. Jointer planes to get things all the same width. Drawer front and both sides need ripped to width. Marked a few lines around, got out the usual suspects, as I had ran a saw on the ends.. As usual, pins get done first, then t...

Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...

Maple Chest of Drawers #14: More drawers....almost done

Well, I was only going to go to the shop, to remove those three pipe clamps…...Yeah…right…Monday, or no Monday…things were going to get done…. Pipe clamps came off….wrestled with the drawer for awhile….Walnut strips were added, and the two knobs installed…drawer is back in some clamps.. Just slightly different ones. Got the Drawer #2 all cleaned up, since those clamps came off of it….and stashed it in the case.. Which left Draw...

Maple Chest of Drawers #13: More drawer, and other follies...

08-21-2017 01:19 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Again, more of a catching up…. Decided to try to add the plywood back to the case…..on a Monday? Usual stuff went on… I was just going to get a measurement on what size of a panel I needed to cut out of the 4’ x 4’ panel….was.. One thing led to another,,,,,had to lay the panel ON the dinning room table to mark out two lines needing cut….wound up outside on the patio, using a roll-around cooler as a bench, to saw the panel out….grrrrr ...

08-16-2017 04:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Always seem to be a fight during the first drawer build…..if it has been a while between builds… Ok, more of a catch up on how things are going….both on the thumb, and the project X-rays this morning show thumb has healed….been in the splint a bit too long….NOW I get to loosen it up to where it will bend like new, again….to do that, it was back to the shop today.. Ok, Drawers: Laid out a few drawer fronts… These were the “easy ones...

Maple Chest of Drawers #11: Top is done..

08-10-2017 02:34 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

With a surprise ending, too….Got bored, decided to try the plank for the top…4/4×13-1/8” x 49” long…..heavier than it looked, awkward going down the steps to the shop…. After cutting off a chunk to get to a length for the case…..I thought I could not only flatten the slab out a bit, but get it close to 3/4” thick…...wasn’t happening on the thickness part, but I at least got it almost flat.. Width-wise, was too narrow. Wal...
