A Project for August, Tool Chest #13: Drawer #5 needs to be glued up, today..

Had Laundry Detail this morning (Saturday) which means I get to hang around waiting for the machines to get done…also means a bit of shop time, while I am standing there… Drawer sides….both are a bit rough..how rough? And NO, that is not “curl” showing up…plane in use? Wood River #62..for now…results? Hmm, looks a bit better, don’t it?Next? Time to get “Groovy” The other one seems to have thought I said something abo...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #11: Thursday in the shop, a dovetail tutorial....

08-13-2021 04:56 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Hybrid Shop….I use what will get a task done….doesn’t always involve hand tools, nor always power tools…usually a blend of the two..so…when building these drawers, I have been using both a router table and hand chopped ways.. Thursday was about a 3 hour tour…to get ONE drawer into the clamps…and another to get it’s handle installed.. Drawer #3 would like a handle, please. Laid out the locations for the 2 bolts ( in pencil) and then drill...

Drawer #1 came out of the clamps, and didn’t fly apart…good start. Test fit into the case.. And..that was as far as it went in…we have ways.. Planed the high points down a bit…try again.. While I was at it..I added a screw to the back corners… Counter sunk, of course…last of the first stash of Ash was hauled to the shop…after which Old Murphy was fired..Drawer #5 needed two sides milled for length and width.. Done. Drawer #3…ne...

Lumber run to start off the day..two planks at 3/4” x 6” x 48”, and two at 3/4” x 6” x 75”, about 10 bft? Price?Total was $7….about the only luck for the day…as Old Man Murphy decided to join in…Drawer #2 came out of the clamps….test fit showed some sticky spots…plane to clean those up,,try again.. Well, I could maintain that little gap with the rest of the drawers…we’ll see…Drawer #1…was a fighte...

08-11-2021 02:30 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Going to be a few of these Drawer Building blogs….each has it’s own set of issues….First off, need a few parts milled up….to see how far I can get….with what is left of the lumber stash…so.. We have a few blanks for drawer fronts….need a few sides.. 7 out of the 10 I needed…still a couple fronts short… Bring another plank to the shop. Even milled backs for the top 2 drawers….that need to be quite a bit thinner than the sid...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #6: We have glue up!

08-09-2021 01:03 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

One thing lead to another…was almost as bad as herding cats…not quite, but close…Drawer dividers kept sliding in and out usually when I was adding a clamp to that exact spot…..kept the mallet handy, to “resolve” any disputes That thin section of sliding dovetail? both front ones had cracked, and needed glued back in place..more clamp Then, along the front, where the floor board resides in the rebate….bead of glue was added in the rebate, then...

Laying out for sockets to house sliding dovetails in…need 4 per side….goal is to run a guided router across…need to mark where the bit̵...

I have been away from this site for awhile – shame on me – for I enjoy this site a lot – but signing on a day or two ago I saw a request from a member – several years old – looking for a manual for the Makita bandsaw model 2116 – I have that bandsaw and it is in pristine shape – I bought it new – can’t remember the year – I enjoy using it at least once a week – well the reason I am writing this that I have the manual and I will...

Luann?) make 2 marks…one for length, one for width…then connect the 2 with a framer’s square…then over to the bandsaw.. Not only follow the straight lines….I was even splitting them!...then a test fit into the box… Oooooh, we got lucky…Pop this back out, bead of glue brushed around on the slips…and set the panel down into the glue…but, ...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #4: Got one end done..

07-09-2021 07:34 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And trying to get #1: End done…. There is a dry fit to fine tune. Had to mill tenons on the ends of the rails. Make sure the panel would fit.

It was getting glued up, whether it liked it, or not…..like trying to herd cats… Meanwhile… #2 End: Dry fit wasn’t quite right…panel was the hold up…was too fat, a hair too wide in the beam, and a hair too lon...
