Stickley Coat Rack #3: More Shaping and More Joinery

06-06-2020 06:39 PM by WirelessWoodworker | 3 comments »

Last time I worked on the base and post, now I turn my attention to the 4 support pieces around the bottom of the post. Here’s a video of the process (if the embed doesn’t work – here’s the link: https://youtu.be/2e4x0aqVreI) The first step was to mortise the post into the base. I started by drilling out most of the waste, then chopped away the rest of the bulk: Finally, because I had already rounded the corners...

Stickley Coat Rack #2: Starting Joinery and Tapering

05-30-2020 01:31 AM by WirelessWoodworker | 2 comments »

This next part is a bit on the short side, but I should have another one in a few days, so stay tuned! Picking up where we left off last time, I start tackling the joinery for the base, taper the main post, and add some chamfers. Here’s a link to the Youtube video: https://youtu.be/ww_bf0vKYZU The first step was to cut the half-lap (cross-lap? Box-lap? Finger joint??, I’m not sure what that joint is called, but you get the idea!) joint in the base. I cut this by making ...

Stickley Coat Rack #1: Rough Cut, Milling, and Shaping

05-17-2020 05:09 PM by WirelessWoodworker | 2 comments »

My next project is going to be a fairly simple Stickley style coat rack or coat tree maybe it’s called. We enter our house via the garage door probably 90% of the time and our coat closet it by the front door, which is through our dining room from the garage, sooo… obviously most of our coats don’t actually make it to the closet – they end up draped over the backs of the dining room chairs. I wanted to tidy this up a bit, so thought I’d just go out and buy a cheap free-standing coat r...

Workbench #4: Finishing touches

04-08-2020 07:23 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

I’m on forced vacation this week, so I’ve been able to get a lot done, between bike riding with my daughter and the honey do list, and I’m basically finished with the workbench. The stock for the deadman guide Needed to be straightened out, so I used my tail vise again, and glued it in place. The slot for the deadman was routed in the top, and I flipped the shape of the chop to make the deadman. Next everything was disassembled and given a quick coat of ...

Workbench #3: Top and Chop

04-04-2020 01:11 PM by JimYoung | 2 comments »

With the Michigan shelter in place order, I’m making good progress on the work bench. The mortises for the legs are cut. I had to borrow a T50 Torx bit to install the knock down hardware to hop the top in place. These bolts are top quality and no issues with them. Hardest part about this step was crawling around on the floor. Next up was final shaping the Chop/Leg Vise. I didn’t have a thick enough piece of maple, so I laminated a piece of cherry to the front and cut t...

Workbench #2: Dovetail and tail vise

03-30-2020 11:25 AM by JimYoung | 8 comments »

While being in lockdown in Michigan, I’ve had some time to continue with my work bench build. I finished gluing up the two slabs for the top and took them to Armstrong Millworks to have them jointed and planed to thickness. I just don’t have the tools or skills yet to tackle this job. While I was there I picked up a few more boards to finish up the bench. Next up was to hog out the bottom of the front top slab for the tail vise and glue the dog hole board in place. I̵...

Spokeshave and Draw Knife Holder for Tool Cabinet

03-28-2020 07:06 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

I’m starting to make the tool holders in my new tool cabinet. I made a video showing how I laid out the spokeshave and draw knife holder. It was a balance of function and making it look nice for displaying my tools. If you have questions, feel free to add a comment and I’ll respond to you. What do you think? https://youtu.be/zjwv_NBTaR8

03-16-2020 01:36 AM by Jeff100 | 8 comments »

So is it just me or when I hear the words “self quarantine”, I also hear “Perfect time for a big shop project!!” I am in deperate need of a new tool wall. The last one was just a pallet hung up on the wall with screws and nails hanging what all i could fit. Well, as the collection of hand tools grows, the wall needed to get bigger and better organized. And so it begins, Here’s roughly what needs to get hung up, all in specially designated holders ...

Finishing and Hanging the Hand Tool Storage Cabinet

02-01-2020 02:42 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

Well, it’s really coming along. In this video, I show applying a linseed oil finish, installing the door hinges, and hanging the cabinet on the wall. I also show how I disguised the mistake I made when I glued up the doors… we all make mistakes, but it’s important how well you disguise them! I’d love to know your thoughts.
