July, Frame & Panel Box Project #3: Out of the clamps, 2 sides get together

07-08-2021 03:23 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to match the 2 up… With side #1 having “issues” was a hair LONGER than Side #2, and one leg was sticking it’s foot out…Tablesaw to correct both ends, rather than all from one end…Clamped the two sides together…. Ok…Not sure if it is #1 or #2….need to fix that edge….beltsander AND a plane.. getting close….had to work on both ends, BTW. Finally got that chore done….removed ONE clamp, carefully rotated t...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #2: trying for one glue-up

07-06-2021 10:01 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Need to mill a few tenons…so the rails will fit into the stiles….and match the length of the panel.. Set this to the thickness of the panels, to help size the tenons..Wanted a snug, but not too snug fit… Close.. Tried a dry fit….fine tuned a couple spots…then the glue up could commence ( herding of cats, comes to mind..) Creaks a bit, but no “CRACKS”...must be a good sign? Let this sit a day…repeat for Side #2 Fitting the panel t...

Another new shop - third time's the charm? #8: Dust Collection

06-28-2021 05:19 PM by DrPuk2U | 0 comments »

This is the eighth in a series of posts. I intended to post as I went but the work was HARD and it was often all I could do to get the work on the shop done. Documenting? Sure, later… So now the shop is largely done so I’ll try to document how the last couple of steps. In the journey. Dust collection is currently very much a work in progress. Ultimately I will put the dust collector (a Delta collector that used to be mobile but is now mounted on a plaque on a French cleat) and the pancake...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #7: Lid re-worked, hinges installed...maybe a PIP

06-19-2021 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first things first…clamps came off of the box…decided the top edges needed to all match each other, so the lid will indeed sit flat when I close it…we have ways.. Since this Millers Falls No.9 was sitting out on the bench….might as well use it. 2 corners were a bit higher than the other two….not any more…..same with the slips, and the bottom edges of the box…. Same plane….keep checking until things will sit flat….like the lid...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #6: Slips are showing, round-overs done

06-16-2021 07:42 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

So…started up the mitersaw…and cut four slips for length. Each gets a bead of glue, and a couple clamps….started on the longer sides, attempting to pull the bowed in side back out to straight…then work my way around from there… Some joints were better.. But, always seems to be That One… Oh well…going to be covered with a plywood floor above, and a brass foot below. Set this aside for a day..Removed the 3 main clamps from the lid blank.. ...

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...

A Table for the Gazebo #8: Time for a PIP

05-31-2021 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Once things were sanded and planed smooth..was time for a coat of stain to be brushed on…. Some spots needed a bit more than others…..wasn’t just a plane, or a sander used.. I also gave the Stanley No. 80 a little work. Each of these 3 tools were used where they fit best. Had to clean out the shop a bit….so I could set the table up on the tablesaw, rather a towel sitting on the tablesaw’s top. Wanted to be able to rotate the table, without scratching ...

A Table for the Gazebo #7: Bread board ends, drawer building

05-28-2021 11:26 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Clamps came off the panel for the top of the table…..ends need to be flat and squared up. Too awkward to do the square up with the tablesaw….not really wanting to handsaw it, either….set to work with the panel clamped to the top of the tablesaw….and let a jack plane and the beltsander go to work ( new belt, too) With the grain with the sander, along the glue lines….jack plane does it’s thing going across the grain…worked over one face, then flip...
