Maple Chest of Drawers #3: Stiles,aka corner posts

07-28-2017 12:00 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, earlier, I had resawn a 4/4 plank into four “posts” ......not the best looking ones on the block…lots of saw marks, and wavy cut lines. I used these items to correct a few things….the metal yard stick is a Tinner’s Rule. Nice if you made tin cans for a living. Calls out every size needed to make whatever container you’d need….also makes a nice straightedge.. Has more waves than the Navy….the other edge was quite as bad.. Ther...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #14: Bookcase started

03-15-2018 10:47 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, Those two longer sides, needed a rebate added to them. Once I figured out which was the “inside” “top”, Back and bottom and have both match….Clamped one side into the vise on the bench.. Checked the Wards 78 to see how it was set up.. Might be about right? full length shaving. Got both rebates done.. This will “house” the plywood back panel… Time to lay out for a few sliding dovetails… Used a book to set the sp...

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...

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...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #18: Top flattening, parts 1 and 2

04-13-2015 03:49 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I didn’t write the final post last week as I was pretty busy with my 20th wedding anniversary. Last weekend I had planned on flattening the tops on my last day off but only got half of it done. I had decided to use the router to flatten it, using a sled and rails. I saw the technique on the Wood Whisperer video and thought it was a good idea. So I went to the big box and got two 2×6 kiln dried 8’ long boards for the rails. The first thing it to make the edges straight and ...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #1: The design

04-30-2014 09:29 AM by GCM | 0 comments »

Here is my attempt to build an affordable wooden 4 drawer filing cabinet. I rule out: Plwood, as it is way too expensive in Australia for anything but the most expensive style of furniture.MDF, I built a single draw prototype and, even when using frame construction, it was way too heavy.Melamine, may be a good choice but for this project I don’t think it looks good enough.Solid wood, as it is too expensive. My current choice is to go with premium (knot free) pine and pine panel...

Dust Separator #1: Cutting the top disks

07-13-2012 05:13 AM by Drifter | 0 comments »

I got a little distracted this evening – from working on my Bathroom Vanity project. After seeing the many posts and watching some of the videos that demonstrate the use and advantages of having a dust separator I decided to make one for myself. I already had the shopvac and the bucket – 5 gallon for now – so I stopped by the local tool store the other day and picked up some dust collector parts and swung by the plumbing supply store as well. This evening I thought it w...

Block plane box #1: Why a box?

05-12-2020 01:42 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well….I do have a couple block planes still with their oem boxes…Not sure I’d do something like that one. The other box is a bit ratty… And it will only hold one plane…but…Thought I could resaw the scrap Pine boards in the shop, down to 1/4” thick, and make a few boxes to store some of my block plane “collection” in….have 14 ( last count) but maybe just the better ones will get their own little box… Some of the resaws&#...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #4: Last corner done, dry fit, then the glue and Clamp Flash Mob

06-15-2021 01:11 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, rest of the corners at done… This was Corner #3…but it was the last of the corners milled…same as before…Enough that I could put all four corners together into a dry fit… So, how did the last corner turn out? The one on the right. Not too hateful? While I had this all set up, had a stack of clamps stop by….needed to get preset, as to which sized clamp can be used… Just 8 clamps? Hmm….we’ll see….noted I would need...

Tap & Die Box build #4: Feeling "Groovy"?

09-23-2020 03:36 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well….played around in the shop this morning…had 3 grooves to finish up… Seemed to be making a lot of “noodles”... To where the Stanley 45 was filled up… And I’d have to stop to clear the plane….test fit, to see how the grooves would line up.. Close enough….Ok, change the 45 over to hold a wider cutter… Goal was to plough a groove to hold a 1/2” thick “shelf” in which to hold 10 dies..will stash #11 a...
