Wood is 5/16” thick Ash. A bit of backsaw work, a bit of chisel work… We have pins….used these to lay out the matching tails….then try to stay on the wast...

A tray from those Ash scraps #2: A glue up..

04-09-2019 04:53 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First, decided to add a couple dividers, to make 6 compartments….stock was a bit too thick…we have ways.. Next, lay out where they will go…and notch the handle…about 3/8” deep.. Then mark the dividers for their notches, and notch them to fit.. Then, stand this mess up onto the end piece, and mark for fingers….fingers at the corners were the easy part But, I needed that old Sash chisel to chop two through mortises for the handle’s finger t...

A tray from those Ash scraps #1: Started up

04-05-2019 08:38 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Since I still had a big stack of that Ash scrap pile… And boxes were getting ‘boring” to make…thought I could try building a tray, or tote out of this mess.. A few of the boards need thinned down a bit….and got a second kickback…homemade pushstick hit the saw blade, then the palm of the hand, again….Found a few scraps about the right length.. 5 pieces…edges needed jointed, then a glue up…to make a panel for the tray’s botto...

Pedestal Table Leg Repair with Vector Clamping

04-05-2019 09:29 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

Have you ever used “vector clamping”? In a recent table leg repair, I didn’t have anywhere to secure the clamps because the table legs were curved. I made up a caul to apply even clamping pressure exactly where I needed it. I cover this in a video showing the repair process. Let me know what you think with a comment. Thanks, Scott.

The part with the split was sent to the clamps, and glued back up….last pins were chopped.. Used those to mark out the tails…and chop those&...

Marked and cut out a lid from the glued up panel….marked out, and cut a 1/4” plywood panel for a bottom and glued that in place…using the bench’s vise to hold things tight, while the glue dried, and I had some Lunch&...

Curiosity made me do it #1: Grizzly Paint Colors

03-25-2019 02:00 AM by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

Was curious if I could find a Grizzly touch up paint color that would match a Geetech jointer I own. Since site does catalog information on non-US made wood working tools, touch up colors can be hard to find for off brand, now antique Taiwan made wood working tools. Ended up digging out this paint color summary in Grizzly parts catalog that I thought might be nice to share: Grizzly PPAINT-1 – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023SGrizzly PPAINT-1A – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023S AE...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #1: The Chassis

03-25-2019 12:09 AM by Jason1974 | 18 comments »

Gents, so I decided to start another project. I had a huge chuck of cherry on my wood carts so I decided to mill it down and make something with it. Haven’t decided what other woods to use but I think I’m going to make the wheels out of walnut for the tyres and maple for the rims. I also have a small chunk of bloodwood I would like to incorporate into the build. Maybe I’ll use it for the seats. ............. Thanks for watching!!!.

Where was I? Been busy cutting box joints, by hand… the 2 longer side panels to match each other, with things all nice and squared up….clamped them together for the next few steps….made a line showing where the ends will go…carried that all around..Have a 6mm chisel to use, to get the spacing about right…then used a small square.. square a line across both panels, and down the sides a bit….need these lines to guide the saw.. had to lower the...
