Workbench #3: Top and Chop

04-04-2020 01:11 PM by JimYoung | 1 comment »

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...

Shop Cabinet build #12: Plugs done, latches installed, stain applied

04-04-2020 01:09 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Update on that plug cutter, needed sharpened…and a skinny board for the vise on the drill press. was having trouble cutting the plugs.. Once they were made, a small screwdriver could pop them out, dab of glue on the narrow end, and tap into place.. let the glue set a bit. Chisel and a tap with the hammer to trim the plugs down…block plane to smooth things out.Sharpened the cutter, today.. And made the last 11 plugs. made a road trip to Lowes, and picked up the latche...

04-02-2020 04:00 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got to the point I just had to get out of the house..can only stay cooped up so long. So, mail a box out, then head to Lowes for a bit…even had the van’s window down a bit….enjoyed the fresh air, as it were…. Anyway, bought 2 hinges. 30” long. With TINY screws…We have ways… Had some 1” screws I could add in, about every 4th screw. Had the driver for the screws, another with a VIX bit… Needed a way to set the doors open, while...

Shop Cabinet build #10: Clamps came off, build-a-door #2, and other stuff

03-31-2020 08:27 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

All clamps came off. 1×4s hauled to the shop…supplies laid out, even found a full box of 2” long, coarse thread screws…. So, laid the 1×4 x 6’ down on the mitre box…find the center…should leave 2 pieces at 36” long…in theory I can’t hold the saw in a “death grip”...makes sawing go better…also use the entire length…not just more teeth, it keeps the wear on just the middle section of the saw to a min...

Workbench #2: Dovetail and tail vise

03-30-2020 11:25 AM by JimYoung | 7 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...

Shop Cabinet build #9: rack for some chisels, door#2 started..

03-30-2020 04:34 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Taking things a bit slow, lately….taking it easy on the right hand….so had a stash of extra chisels.. Along with a few everyday users….some of the “extras” can go back in the rack along the back of the tool well…about 7 needed a new home, though. Dug around in the scrap pile….wanting a couple strips. 2 that were a bit on the thicker side, and one thin one. One of the thicker strips was cut down to about the right length, to fit inside a d...

Tool tote - success!

03-24-2020 06:09 PM by shawnSK | 4 comments »

The tool tote so far – the joints are cut, the sides are set and one end has been shaped. .I score a handle opening with a marking knife, (I’m really beginning to love this thing) and chisel the opening out with a mallet. The registration is good, the cut is square. I may be getting the hang of this after all. .I fit the handle into the slot and it fits snugly. It even gets kind of stuck. Wonderful!...I trace my finished end onto the other and this time I drill a hole in each corner of ...

Tool rehab part 1: piles of chisels #3: First night of rehab for Stanley

03-22-2020 04:20 PM by garethmontreal | 6 comments »

This 1 3/4” Stanley everlasting “Sweethart” chisel is the first to go to rehab. There are two reasons its going first. The first reason is that is very rough shape I dont expect things to go smoothly rehabbing 20 odd rusty antique chisels for the first time. Starting with the roughest one hopefully means confronting the various problems im going to encounter sooner rather then later. Second Reason is that it is probably the most robust feeling chisel im going to work...

Tool rehab part 1: piles of chisels #2: pairing done to paring chisels

03-22-2020 02:50 PM by garethmontreal | 0 comments »

All right the first thing to do is figure where to start. I’m never going need all these chisels and ill never have enough to sharpen them all so I’m going start by picking the the chisels with the most potential and start with them. These are the chisels that made the first cut They lean heavily in the direction of longer, socketed, and bevel edge so the most like pairing chisels in general. Their exceptions to these tendencies like flat sided mortise chisels but firme...
