Mitre Box, a rehab story #4: Finally...done

08-07-2019 01:38 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Ok..turned the frame over, cleaned out around where the King bolt’s threads come up through….and soaked those for a day….Knee rehab was rough…came home and took a nap…..Next morning,,,tried again….hmmm,getting fed up….grabbed the hammer, and hit right on the head of that bolt, 6-8 times. Had to drive the tip of the BIG screwdriver into the slot, added a pair of visegrips to assist…Uuuuummpf With a loud ” Creeack” bolt came loose...

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...

New desk for my computer #20: dado work...and some assembly

07-29-2019 02:29 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, for some dumb reason, I skipped lunch today…hauled a few items to the shop…set up that router…was a bit too deep….wanted it closer to 3/8”. Can’t do these dado on the bench, needed a way to hold things just long enough for one dado, slide the board a bit, and do the next….so.. Pine “pad” under the clamp. Gives me room to lay out and run the router…Layout. dado is narrower than the board using it. Also needed to know whe...

New desk for my computer #16: More drawers to do

07-22-2019 12:38 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Got the clamps off of Drawer #3 and #4, this morning while the shop was still cool…Had to clean the sides up a bit.. Jack plane to get it close….then.. A #3 sized smooth plane to smooth things out…worked on both drawers…had an issue as to what one goes where… Got that straightened out. All edges got sanded, then the fronts got a coat of stain, and their handles installed.. Will do, for now..( I marked the inside of each drawer, as to which went where...

New desk for my computer #14: Build a drawer

07-18-2019 05:05 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, most of the parts are ready? Well, the sides needed just a few more things done..Cleaned the dados, so the backs fit all the way in… Just happened to have the right width chisel, for that. Pilot holes for screws to attach the sides to the back.. Even the drill was “Vintage”....then flip the sides over, and do a countersink… Why change bits, just change drill and all…there is a bevel to the bottom corner.. Makes inserting a drawer into it’...

Couple of chisels for clean up….then use the pins to layout the tails…bandsaw to make a few cuts… ...

Make your own - shop aids, tools, jigs #4: New 10" bandsaw

07-17-2019 10:40 PM by curliejones | 0 comments »

I’m just finishing up a bathroom re-model that turned out to be much more work than I imagined. Keeping up with this six-acre homestead, gardens, and a forty-year-old house are about enough to keep me busy, but I still love woodworking and spending time in the shop. So other than materials for the bathroom, the “labor cost” involved anew 10” bandsaw. I shopped and compared, I read reviews and ended up buying the Rikon 10-306. There are some quirks that Rikon needs to w...

New desk for my computer #12: Drawer start up..

07-15-2019 01:33 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took 2 people to get the desk down off my tablesaw, yesterday. Took a couple trips up and down the stairs, hauling planks of 1×6 pine (3) and an Ash 1×6 ( best looking one of the lot) and other items…. Had work for the saw…cut enough blanks for the 4 main drawers…. Yes, there are 6 blanks of Ash sitting there….I picked out the 4 best… As for the other two? They had an issue with a knot… I doubt IF I want this in a drawer front. ...

New desk for my computer #6: Side #3 clamped up, start of the webframes

07-05-2019 04:30 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Lets see, was a bit jumbled up, yesterday….too many errands to be run, right when I am trying to work…but needed 10 mortises chopped, and a pair of feet milled… Check for fit as I went along.. Since 2 raised panels were already done. Panel #3 had issues.. A knot and some splits going on….use this for the rebate side, other side? I think this will bevel well enough… Some of the rails were a bit …rough….planed those smooth….dry...

New desk for my computer #5: Mortises, glue ups...side #1 done..

07-03-2019 05:28 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

6 panels were raised…should be enough for a little bit….need to chop 20 mortises, into 4 stiles…and fit things to fit first layout didn’t go as planned….used two rails and one panel, to work my way done one stile…test fit the entire side looks good, right? Not… “Mission-creep”? 2 marks are where the tenon was supposed to go….grabbed a second stile.. And re-marked where the tenons actually are….set the mis-marked st...
