09-14-2021 11:53 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

To complete the cut…left the plywood spacer in place….what was the top is now the bottom. Start here….the saw is about..100+ years old….Disston No. D8…where the “8” is inside of the “D”...5-1/2 ppi, 28” long…big saw… Once it gets going, a spray of sawdust shoots out, all over the place. At about the 3 minute mark.. A nice steady…not too fast, not too slow ….had to stop for a bit, switched the hands a...

Laundry hamper #10: First door: Gluing it up

09-08-2021 04:27 PM by Dave Polaschek | 9 comments »

Between the Monday holiday and my sweetie having some friends of hers over yesterday, I haven’t had a lot of shop time the past few days. But I’ve sorta completed the first door. I started by gluing together opposite corners of the frame, making sure they were square and level. The wasn’t too bad, but that was all I got done on Sunday evening. Monday, I did the big glue-up of the door. The lattice is “loose” in the frame (not glued in, anyhow), but that still left a lot of parts to get ...

Laundry hamper #8: Door frame mitered half-lap joints

09-04-2021 04:15 PM by Dave Polaschek | 13 comments »

Many errands yesterday. We had eight stops on our trip to town, so shop time was… sparse. But I picked up cutting the half-lap joints for the frame and then finished them up this morning. The joints required a bit of fine tuning, both in the miter angles, as well as in the thickness of the half-lap. I got two of them good last night and two this morning. Now I need to figure and mark the half-laps for the slats, and then grow about a dozen extra hands in order hold it togeth...

Laundry hamper #3: Slats and frame pieces for another door

08-28-2021 07:28 PM by Dave Polaschek | 3 comments »

No pictures today, but I made pretty good progress. First up, I used the bandsaw to cut the ash pieces for the frame of the second door. My chunk of 4/4 ash board had a knot in it, which I craftily placed near the 15” mark on the shorter (side) pieces, and if I cut the miter the right direction (or rather, if I put the grooves in the stick the right way), the knot will be in the waste. With those cut, I put in the bead first, then beveled the inner edge, since I had those planes set up and...

Laundry hamper #2: Beads

08-27-2021 04:56 PM by Dave Polaschek | 14 comments »

Not a lot of progress today. I cut beads on the frame pieces for the door using the combination plane. Spent most of the morning fixing my sticking board so it could handle me beading ash. But I got the first stick done and am happy with it. The next three went pretty quickly after that. With those four done, I think I’ll smooth and cut the pieces for the second door next, while I still have the same beading setup in my combination plane. Guess I may need to get a second one if ...

Then the entire outside, other than the plywood back, was given a coat of st...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #15: Plan B? Maybe...

08-19-2021 05:05 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Chapter should be titled “The Lid” Not much of anything went right….the plan to use a router to mill a tongue around all 4 edges of the panel? Looked good on paper…but only IF the panel is square to begin with…the 4 skirt boards? How. after squaring up the panel and needing the long skirt to fit the new size…and NOT cut them…do they turn out to be 1/2” too short? To the point I had to go back and make two new long skirt boards from scr...

I had a couple tasks to get done today…one..Haul a plank to the shop, so I can cut it into 3 pieces to make the panel for the lid…standing in at 3/4” x 5-3/4” x 6’4”...it seemed go out of it’s way to bump into, catch on, and otherwise bang into everything on the way…. can’t use the bench and a handsaw for the cutting, this time around…had to try with the tablesaw….wanted 3 pieces about 24-3/4” long…trying to cut ...
