A plane reborn #1: Plough plane, rehab,

04-19-2018 02:16 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

A few years back, picked an old plough plane at a Garage sale.. Wasn’t much to look at…needed a few things done….was in a hurry, needed a way to make grooves besides a electric router….Tried to fix it up….never did hold a setting..wedges were too worn..the one I made for the cutter was a hair too small….cutter was made from a 1/4” chisel…..was ploughing grooves to build a screen door…plane was having issues…...finally, it was ju...

I made a couple simple end grain cutting boards to use up some scrap maple and walnut I had in the shop and put my new drum sander through it’s paces. Thanks for watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6tYldscRZY

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

Shop Notes #15: Four Done, Three . . . for Later

04-03-2018 03:59 PM by Steve | 3 comments »

The weather cleared last week, and I was pleased to be able to field four completed cabinets at the spring opening of a local winery. Sales weren’t terribly brisk, but March is normally completely dead. Any sales at all are an improvement. Of the cabinets I completed, three were in walnut, the other in sapele. I finished this first cabinet in amber shellac. I have a lot to learn yet about this finish, I’ve looked at a few videos for guidance, and they tend to show an app...

Shop stuff #120: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 2

03-29-2018 10:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

Starting to tackle the base of the guitar stand. The piece of walnut came from the firewood pile. This is a recurring role for this piece as it is the one I used in the video checking out the 6” Bosch 1250 DEVS sander. But since you’re subscribed, you know that, right?...lol. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #119: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash

03-24-2018 01:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

You just have to keep trying new things. I thought I would try making a bent lamination for the first time, and, since my son in law plays guitar, a guitar stand seems to be a logical place to try. Here in part one, I prep the stock and get the bent lamination done up. It was a fairly straight forward process. I was expecting some spring back when I took it out of the clamps, but that assumption was incorrect as it held shape great. I am also trying out some new things with my videos. S...

Shop Notes #14: Postponed

03-23-2018 03:52 PM by Steve | 3 comments »

My planned weekend show was postponed a week due to heavy rains. (It’s an outdoor event, and apparently ducks have taken up residence on the lawn where my table is supposed to sit.) The postponement was a bit of a blessing, as it relieves the pressure to get items done on a tight timeline—there’s a impulse to cut corners that I have to resist. Shortly before the cancellation was announced, I had resolved to focus on two cabinets, one sapele, the other walnut—get the...

Shop Notes #13: Really Lousy Estimating

03-19-2018 03:51 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I started out with a goal to produce seven jewelry cabinets by the end of this week, three in sapele and four in walnut. Along the way last week, I had to set three aside—to be finished later. Milling up the door frame elements, I only made enough for one (and a half!) sapele unit. I thought I would have lots of extra walnut, but it was just enough for four. I normally mill these with an up cut straight bit, but changed things up this time. This setup produced pretty good results...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #14: Legs and internal assembly

03-15-2018 03:03 AM by cowboyup3371 | 0 comments »

I need a bigger workbench after events of this week – one of the main carcass boards fell and broke while I was trying to size and fit the legs before assembly. I chose not to use clamps as I needed full access to the sides and wasn’t ready to assemble it as it was still too cold. However, I did not lose as much time as I feared and am now set to finish this project up by the middle of next week with delivery scheduled for the end of the month. I still need to make a door to hi...
