A tray from those Ash scraps #3: Another glue up, and a PIP

04-12-2019 10:33 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Have about one more week to get all that Ash scrap wood used up…then a deck project takes over. But.. This time, I remembered the dividers….had to, as the bottom gets glued on over them..let it sit for a day…the a clean up was done.. Bottom was a tad too wide…we have ways… Millers Falls No. 11….seemed to do the job.. The ends were a bit long, too…sanded them smooth, rather than mess with end grain and planes… Aslo tried to improv...

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...

Pedestal Table Leg Repair with Vector Clamping

04-05-2019 09:29 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

Have you ever used “vector clamping”? In a recent table leg repair, I didn’t have anywhere to secure the clamps because the table legs were curved. I made up a caul to apply even clamping pressure exactly where I needed it. I cover this in a video showing the repair process. Let me know what you think with a comment. Thanks, Scott.

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...

Was finally able to get some shop time Sunday….first part was before Lunch…Box was removed from the forest of clamps….long fingers were sanded down flush….and a few high spots were also lowered a bit….right before Lunch.. Marked and cut out a lid from the glued up panel….marked out, and cut a 1/4” plywood panel for a bottom and glued that in place…using the bench’s vise to hold things tight, while the glue dried, and I had some Lunch&...
