Vermont Lap Desk, part two

04-15-2013 10:15 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, hand is healed up, for now. Got out a handsaw and trimmed things to length. Someone asked about making dovetails for the corners? Had to rearrange the bench a bit, first. That yellow Miter Box was moved around to the front of the corner of the bench. Cleaned off an area in front of it, as well. Laid out for a few cuts Had to add some bits of scrap wood to the miter box, to get rid of any flex. C-clamp to hold things in place. Tried a coping saw at first. Hurt ...

I’ve been working on this bench for more than a year and am finally almost finished. The base is ash and is from a plan I got from and the top is 2×6 lumber from Home Depot and is loosely based on the Stumpy Nubs 2×6 Roubo bench. The top is 36” x 59” and 5” thick. I made it wider than both of the plans called for because I wanted to use it for assembly. I haven’t had a chance to seal it yet because as soon as the top was flat I started...

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #10: I had to make some parquet tiles yesterday.

05-28-2009 02:49 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 9 comments »

I misjudged the amount of tiles I had, so I manufactured some more yesterday. I guess I miscounted the bundles I had made up. I couldn’t find any to buy, so I made some. I made about 60 more tiles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the area I have left to do in one corner of the main shop area. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Here’s some views of the tiles I made. I used some Black Ash instead of Oak, bu...

A Paul Sellers' Box build #2: Thinning the stock

01-15-2020 02:00 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, let the Lid/Base sit a while…other parts can be worked on. One of the 2 longer parts will make the front of the box….bottom half is to be the drawer’s front, yet match the upper half. Then they also have to match the “height” of the back, and the ends. First, the better looking edge on each board was jointed straight…at least enough to go along the fence of the tablesaw…Boards are just under 6” wide….I need them down to 3-1/2&#...

New desk for my computer #22: hutch done, finish is on, almost done

08-02-2019 03:42 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

except for hauling this thing out of the shop to where it will call “home”...Hutch came out of the clamps, sanded things down, added screws in the top… Just in case someone wants to pick up the desk by the top of the hutch….ran the round-over bit around a bit, and set the hutch on the desk… While I figure out how to get everything stained…everything that will show… Took a while, let this sit until the stain dried. Got to thinking..( dangero...

Tuesday morning, figured I could check on the varnish, to see how it turned out…..lid was s...

• Two-Tier Side Table #1: Realization

04-04-2018 12:25 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

Realization -  It was brought to my attention this morning that we need a side table.  A few months ago I picked up some really nice cherry and ash from Suwanee Lumber. I’m sure the stock has had enough time to get used to my shop. So, perhaps it’s time to start working on a two-tier side table. It might take me a few days to determine what this table should look like … so, stay tuned to see what I come up with. Thanks for looking, more to come! Follow my progress with the l...

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...
