Small Projects #23: Purpleheart Gun Box

04-03-2020 02:42 AM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

Been burning thru my purpleheart inventory making pipes. So I just ordered more from Craftsmen Supply in Ybor City (Tampa) Fl. They have a great selection of exotics and are good folx to deal with. One of the pieces was calling to me to make a box out of it. Looking around I found the better half’s hawgleg 1873 .45 Colt revolver and a project began.It’s 2-3/8” X 5-1/2” X 12” of 1/4” purpleheart The piece of purpleheart started out as 15/16” x 7-...

04-02-2020 04:00 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got to the point I just had to get out of the house..can only stay cooped up so long. So, mail a box out, then head to Lowes for a bit…even had the van’s window down a bit….enjoyed the fresh air, as it were…. Anyway, bought 2 hinges. 30” long. With TINY screws…We have ways… Had some 1” screws I could add in, about every 4th screw. Had the driver for the screws, another with a VIX bit… Needed a way to set the doors open, while...

Small Projects #22: *4* Black Limba Dugouts *4*

04-01-2020 10:39 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

For those following this blog you know I have a Smoke Shop for a client. Last time I was there she asked if I could make a dugout with a sliding, not rotating, lid. I told her I’d give it a shot and here are the results. I just recently bought some 2×2x12 wood turning blanks and one that I bought on a flyer was black limba, a wood I’ve never used. Turns out it’s very light and soft and not at all suitable for pipe making. However it is just right for dugout making. ...

Shop Cabinet build #9: rack for some chisels, door#2 started..

03-30-2020 04:34 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Taking things a bit slow, lately….taking it easy on the right hand….so had a stash of extra chisels.. Along with a few everyday users….some of the “extras” can go back in the rack along the back of the tool well…about 7 needed a new home, though. Dug around in the scrap pile….wanting a couple strips. 2 that were a bit on the thicker side, and one thin one. One of the thicker strips was cut down to about the right length, to fit inside a d...

Spokeshave and Riving Knife Holder for Tool Cabinet

03-28-2020 07:06 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

I’m starting to make the tool holders in my new tool cabinet. I made a video showing how I laid out the spokeshave and riving knife holder. It was a balance of function and making it look nice for displaying my tools. If you have questions, feel free to add a comment and I’ll respond to you. What do you think? https://youtu.be/kbKzc1-A-gw

Shop Cabinet build #8: Build a door

03-28-2020 07:01 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

First, I need a glue up done…two 1×10s hauled to the shop. trimmed down from 4’ to 36-1/8” long, then clamped up and the edges jointed. Then glue the two together, into a panel… needed a few cauls… Should have seen the knots on the ends I cut off.. Let this mess sit a day…had to go out and buy some new 1×4s, anyway…last two were a bit too bowed up…So, took the clamps off.. 2 of the 3 new 1×4 x 6’ boards were hau...

Small Projects #20: Jigsaw Stand

03-23-2020 11:51 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Bought a jigsaw to cut out for a dog bowl five or six years ago. Have only used it once since (interestingly enough to cut another dog bowl). Jigsaws have that stupid blade sticking out and I know for a fact if I remove the blade the next time I go to use it (in another five or six years) I’ll never find the blade. I know I have a blade assortment that I bought when I bought the jigsaw but I have no clue where they might be. The blade means you can’t stand the jig saw up and...

Shop Cabinet build #5: 1 out of the clamps, 2 back in..

03-23-2020 02:16 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Almost like the “1 step forward, 2 steps back?”? Not quite…At least the back panel came out decently… Hmmm, left a pile of c clamps on my bench…Ok, put these away, for now…need the bench space. There was a problem with the two 1×4s I WAS going to use Worse.. Also needed a better 1×10….off to Lowes, and pick out a decent 1×4 x 6’, and a 1×10 x 6’ Then set layout work.. Top and bottom panels but into ...

Shop Cabinet build #4: A solid, glued up back, for a start..

03-22-2020 03:43 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Went through the stack of ten 1×10 x 4’ planks…trying to get 4 “pick of the litters” and haul them to the shop. Goal was to joint the edges, and glue up a panel for the back of the case…..nned to attach racks and things to hold tools in….a 1/4” thick plywood panel just wouldn’t do…. Happen to stand one 4 footer straightup, in the location the new Tool “shed” will go…....something didn’t look quite right&#...
