New desk for my computer #22: hutch done, finish is on, almost done

except for hauling this thing out of the shop to where it will call “home”...Hutch came out of the clamps, sanded things down, added screws in the top… Just in case someone wants to pick up the desk by the top of the hutch….ran the round-over bit around a bit, and set the hutch on the desk… While I figure out how to get everything stained…everything that will show… Took a while, let this sit until the stain dried. Got to thinking..( dangero...

New desk for my computer #20: dado work...and some assembly

07-29-2019 02:29 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, for some dumb reason, I skipped lunch today…hauled a few items to the shop…set up that router…was a bit too deep….wanted it closer to 3/8”. Can’t do these dado on the bench, needed a way to hold things just long enough for one dado, slide the board a bit, and do the next….so.. Pine “pad” under the clamp. Gives me room to lay out and run the router…Layout. dado is narrower than the board using it. Also needed to know whe...

New desk for my computer #16: More drawers to do

07-22-2019 12:38 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Got the clamps off of Drawer #3 and #4, this morning while the shop was still cool…Had to clean the sides up a bit.. Jack plane to get it close….then.. A #3 sized smooth plane to smooth things out…worked on both drawers…had an issue as to what one goes where… Got that straightened out. All edges got sanded, then the fronts got a coat of stain, and their handles installed.. Will do, for now..( I marked the inside of each drawer, as to which went where...

Foot Stool #5: Cutting the mortices in the legs

07-21-2019 07:42 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

The Turpentine is such beautiful timber but it was very brittle and hard which made this job a bit difficult but the tenons on the longitudinal stay fitted quite well. The angle I made 10 degrees.

New desk for my computer #14: Build a drawer

07-18-2019 05:05 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, most of the parts are ready? Well, the sides needed just a few more things done..Cleaned the dados, so the backs fit all the way in… Just happened to have the right width chisel, for that. Pilot holes for screws to attach the sides to the back.. Even the drill was “Vintage”....then flip the sides over, and do a countersink… Why change bits, just change drill and all…there is a bevel to the bottom corner.. Makes inserting a drawer into it’...

Took 2 people to get the desk down off my tablesaw, yesterday. Took a couple trips up and down the stairs, hauling planks of 1×6 pine (3) and an Ash 1×6 ( best looking one of the lot) and other items…. Had work for the saw…cut enough blanks for the 4 main drawers…. Yes, there are 6 blanks of Ash sitting there….I picked out the 4 best… As for the other two? They had an issue with a knot… I doubt IF I want this in a drawer front. ...

Hi all, I have been asked by my wife to make her a small foot stool and I had some hardwood offcuts floating around so here it is.The off cuts were in the shape of a triangle so I used a gum leaf as a template to make a cut out design before joining the two pieces and carved in a section for some gum nuts which I will fill with epoxy.I just brought some Record carving tools so I thought I would it would be nice give the edges a bit of scolloping so I tried my hand at that, I like the look ...
