Small Projects #47: Walnut and Spanish Humidor with Hydrometer & C° gauge

05-24-2021 02:39 AM by Madmark2 | 7 comments »

Used to smoke cigars, but after my 3rd MI, 4th stent & pacemaker its mostly a memory. Never smoked enough to make buying a box of cigars worthwhile but have always wanted a humidor. Completed project. Design:I found hydrometer’s for cheap at Walmart and bought a couple. 1-3/4” x 1” LCD hydrometer with C° indicator. I bought some Spanish cedar and I have some walnut on hand and so a plan was born. I smoked Panatellas and they’re 7” to 7”-1...

Saw Till #3: Finished the carcass

05-18-2021 01:26 PM by controlfreak | 5 comments »

I must say that I am enjoying doing my dovetails “pins first” now. They look a little dirty with the pencil lead but that will clean up with a smoother. The lead used to mark the tail lines is also on the sides off the pins. On a test fit the pencil marks leave smudges where they are too tight and make it easy to trim to fit. I used dovetails on the top and bottom and through tenons for the middle shelf , top of drawer box, just to play around with things. Main reason for the d...

A Table for the Gazebo #3: Taper the legs?

05-17-2021 10:37 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Legs came out of the clamps. Reset the rip fence, and ran each leg through. Goal being to have a square blank.. Glue lines needed taken down a bit. Aprons will be at 5” width….so, the taper will start below that. Trying to neck things down to a 3/4” x 3/4” square foot…have a 3’ steel ruler, to do the lay out with. Trying to remove the worst of the sides, and leave a nice grained side…bandsaw has a brand new, 1/4” blade in itR...

Saw Till #1: Panel glue up and dovetail side panels to bottom

05-04-2021 04:30 PM by controlfreak | 1 comment »

So I decided to make a saw till to gather up saws that live in random places around my shop. This is an ongoing shop organizing and skill building endeavor. Lots of thought has gone into the size and joinery and I have a rough sketch but it is mostly without dimensions so I am pretty much letting form be my guide. It will have one wide drawer or two narrower drawers on the bottom for saw files and blade replacements. Larger saws one one side smaller back saws on the other and maybe room to h...

Small Projects #45: Cat proof screen porch

05-04-2021 02:41 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

The screen porch screens have seen better days. They’re at least 15 years old and showing their age. Where we live in fla development is displacing natural habitat of all sorts of critters — including what appears to be Florida panthers. Big tawny cats are regularly spotted in this area and last fall one of our kitties got out and met an untimely end. Since then the porch has been off limits for both kitties and puppies. Seeing the cats longing for the outside got me thinkin...

Ladder for Towels? #3: Started on the sides

04-18-2021 12:26 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Foot ends were laid out.. Turns out I’ll have to come back and make a second cut… Anyway, top ends were sanded to match each other’s curves…which left the edges to joint so they also matched.. Hmm, I don’t think that little smooth plane will do this job…..so Time to bring out the real jointer….sides are 49-1/2” long…Stanley No. 8 is 24” long….should work.. However, it is not much of a smooth plane….and I wa...

Recycle a few scraps #1: Getting to a glue up...

03-20-2021 11:55 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

One of the chores in the last few projects, is ripping a panel, or just a plank, to get to a certain width. usually results in a strip of scrap…..that for some reason or other, I just can’t throw out. After a while, there is a pile of the strips of scraps…too small to do much more than a few cauls….which get tossed away once the clamps are done with them… So…some thinking was done, dangerous I know…about gluing up a panel of those scraps…t...

03-14-2021 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laundry Detail this afternoon…meant about 3 hours in the shop, while the Laundry got done… Last glue up was removed from the clamps… Not too bad? Means I can better size the parts to the drawer. Front needed a trim on the ends, and a swipe or two along an edge….same with the 2 sides. Already had one corner dovetailed… So, now I needed to get the other end dovetailed…Same as before..Lay out the pins, first.. Saw the lines… Cut a k...
