Ash Scraps = remote tote #2: Design change, then a PIP

04-22-2019 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had to get this thing done…didn’t have any trouble cutting pins… Same as before…spaces for 4 tails.. Was even trying out a new chisel… Even ran a plane across the side… to flatten a bit of cup going on.. Problem arose with cutting the tails…. Grain direction…tails were snapping off, during the dry fits…finally decided to just buzz the dovetails off,,,and get out the nails and glue.. Cut a 5mm plywood panel to rough size, ...

04-17-2019 10:17 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

had more than enough scraps left over….made 2 glued panels….then got them to match each other…then a bit of bandsaw work, to do a few curves.. laying off the the left…had two others that seem wide enough to use as sides, without any glue ups…laid out for some dovetail pins.. Wood is 5/16” thick Ash. A bit of backsaw work, a bit of chisel work… We have pins….used these to lay out the matching tails….then try to stay on the wast...

Shop stuff #155: Part 11 of the Roubo bench build

04-14-2019 11:24 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I tackle the short stretcher in this on. A lot of work but they came out very nice. It may be called soft maple, but it is not at all soft. Spring being here brings some other chores, so wood work and shop time has slowed down. Although I can’t see how it is slower than the winter was. Maybe I’m just slow…lol. Anyway, I really enjoyed this process and the results from it. View on YouTube

A tray from those Ash scraps #2: A glue up..

04-09-2019 04:53 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First, decided to add a couple dividers, to make 6 compartments….stock was a bit too thick…we have ways.. Next, lay out where they will go…and notch the handle…about 3/8” deep.. Then mark the dividers for their notches, and notch them to fit.. Then, stand this mess up onto the end piece, and mark for fingers….fingers at the corners were the easy part But, I needed that old Sash chisel to chop two through mortises for the handle’s finger t...

A tray from those Ash scraps #1: Started up

04-05-2019 08:38 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Since I still had a big stack of that Ash scrap pile… And boxes were getting ‘boring” to make…thought I could try building a tray, or tote out of this mess.. A few of the boards need thinned down a bit….and got a second kickback…homemade pushstick hit the saw blade, then the palm of the hand, again….Found a few scraps about the right length.. 5 pieces…edges needed jointed, then a glue up…to make a panel for the tray’s botto...

Box from Ash scraps #7: Box #2 glue up

03-31-2019 05:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

got the rest of the corners done….had an issue with the big backsaw not wanting to start a cut….found a saw that would as long as I keep the blade waxed The one end had split along the glue line….still got the tails marked and chopped Once the dry fit was done, and I took things apart to work on the last corner.. The part with the split was sent to the clamps, and glued back up….last pins were chopped.. Used those to mark out the tails…and chop those&...

Shop stuff #154: Roubo bench Part 10...Legs and top joinery

03-30-2019 03:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Perhaps the toughest, most challenging joint I have ever cut. But, that’s why I did it. For the challenge. It took me a long time to do it too. Working less than an hour at a time in an unheated shop in the winter. But I finally get all 4 done up and the legs in place. They are far from perfect, but they will be functional and with wedging they will look OK. Heck, even Schwarz wedges these joints on his, and he’s has a lot of experience at it. Next will be the stretchers...

Box from Ash scraps #6: Box #2 started up

03-28-2019 02:05 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, the Boss has already claimed Box #1 as a Recipe Box…..going to wait on any varnishing, until after this next one is done. Used that zero clearance tablesaw for bit…..until a kickback sent my pushstick flying backwards to the wall behind me….Sorted through the stack of thin parts, found two that matched each other, and were about the right size for a lid…managed to get them glued up.. Then set this aside, for now….Cleaned up the two treasures from the M...

Box from Ash scraps #3: Box joint 101 ?

03-22-2019 10:34 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Where was I? Been busy cutting box joints, by hand….so..got the 2 longer side panels to match each other, with things all nice and squared up….clamped them together for the next few steps….made a line showing where the ends will go…carried that all around..Have a 6mm chisel to use, to get the spacing about right…then used a small square.. square a line across both panels, and down the sides a bit….need these lines to guide the saw.. had to lower the...
