A Project for March #8: Build a drawer

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...

Shop stuff #200: Part 10 of the potato bin series...finally

12-05-2020 12:28 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, I actually took the time to get back at editing and putting together a video. It is not my best performing series, but this episode uses some pretty special wood that really makes the unit pop! Thanks for tuning in and commenting. https://youtu.be/5gNjbmTjjHA Oh, and I’ve given up on how to figure out how to embed video. Lumberjocks just seems to want to make it impossible.

11-10-2020 03:29 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Not a fan of working on Mondays….had a couple road trips to do, anyway…panel for the lid…had 3 planks left…by the time I get them ready to glue up….I’d be at least 2” too narrow…so, quick trip to pick up one more plank of 3/4” x 6” x 6’ Ash….spent a whopping $3 for it, too…. Second trip of the day….harbor Freight for some sanding belts ( the red ones, do NOT get the blue one) as the ones I have were getting...

Blanket Chest Project #4: Day #4

11-07-2020 03:30 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

another 2 hours worth….sharpened the mortise chisel…and put it back to work.. The bevel had become rounded a bit,,,,flattened that back out… Seems to work much better, now….I also changed the bandsaw blade..old one was getting a bit too dull, was burning the wood, more than just making a cut..cuts better, now Only had 3 mortises to do… Then I could stash the last frame over by the first 3 frames.. 2 end frames, a front and a back frame…time t...

A box for chisels #5: Flipping a lid

10-14-2020 04:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok….box came out of the clamps looking a bit rough around the edges, on a Monday ( so did I, for that matter) Sander and a #4 handplane to smooth things out. Square pegs were cut and glued into the square holes…had to go back and look at a photo..to see where the marks were…so I can saw the lid off…found it! Then looked for that spot on the box, hoping I didn’t plane it off…then got out a few toys..Marking gauge set to the distance between the top o...

I had fun making this shoulder plane video, I used curly maple and air dried black walnut, I’m not a metal worker, but i had a go at making the blade in a home made forge, it turned out great and I saved a bundle on this much needed tool,enjoy. https://youtu.be/dg1CDpOOCk4

Little work sessions this past week….was having better luck at the yard sales…Tuesday…glue was spread…clamps and cauls applied… More like a clamp convention.. The next day…slowly removed the clamps….and hope for the best.. halfway…nothing flew apart…always a good sign…clamps came back later… As the last of the storage box’s sides were glued in place…and a bit of the face frame parts… That also h...

Shop stuff #194: Fancy root veggie bin part 7...Wanna see my drawers?

07-31-2020 08:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I always find drawers challenging. I don’t know what it is. Lack of experience? Overthinking perhaps? After all, they’re just boxes right? Well, boxes that have to fit within the confines of a prescribed space. Maybe that’s it. I take the last of my sheet goods and get 3 of them knocked out. Not a typical drawer as it needs an open front and venting to live in a veggie bin. That ups the parts count and puts a bit more challenge in assembly. Sure, I make a couple of...

Shop stuff #193: Fancy root veggie bin part 5

07-19-2020 03:12 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, it’s been a while, but I finally got up to publishing a video. In this one I put a nice skirting trim on the bottom of the potato bin. From milling up rough stock to a bit of detail work, mitering the corners and getting some preliminary finish work done. The basic carcass is now complete on the exterior and ready to have the interior work done. https://youtu.be/jG-vyni2OOU

Shop stuff #192: Part 5 of the potato bin build

06-28-2020 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have not had a lot of time for editing. The project has been done and delivered for a while now, it’s just finding the time to get the videos out. This one goes through milling up a few parts and getting the main carcass put together. There are a few tips on keeping things square and easing the glue up. Sit back and enjoy! https://youtu.be/heIxxFWf5EQ
