Scrap Bin Refugees #5: From one glue up to the next

03-07-2022 02:58 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Box came out of the clamps the other day….pins that were proud,,aren’t any more Top and bottom edges were planed level…a panel for the bottom of the box was rough cut to size, and glued on…let this sit a while…. Today, clamps finally came off….needed to plane the bottom to better match the sides of the box.. Ends were sanded to match… That”end grain” thing….then the bottom wanted to rock a bit, so.. It now sits flat..a...

Scrap Bin Refugees #4: Corners 2 and 3

03-04-2022 05:48 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Got about an hours worth of work in the shop….Re-did the #2 corner.. Triple checked to make sure the pins were indeed facing the correct direction… Chopped about halfway down on the show side..mainly to stop any blowouts from chopping from the Inside face.. As with Corner #1, I used the coping saw like a rasp, to clean out the corners…and level to the baseline..used these pins, once I was happy with how they looked, to lay out the tails… This time, a bandsa...

Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #10: Drawerbuilder , part 2

02-11-2022 01:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok….the back needs to get attached to the sides of the drawer,next…thought I’d at least check how well the drawer will fit into the box…. Not sure I’d want to close this up any further…might not get it back out… Question here is….a single knob, or two knobs? For right now, though, I need the drawer sides…. Using through dovetails, as according to the Sellers plan…except, here I’ll go back to doing the Pins first̷...

Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #5: Heading for a glue up

02-06-2022 03:20 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Need to get Corners #3 and #4 dovetailed, and cut the plywood panel to size, first.. Where I left off, the other day…. And what was actually sawn and chopped… Chop 1/2 way down on the outside face, THEN chop from the inside face. Coping saw to help clean things up..then use these pins to lay out the tails.. And, try a dry fit… And mark the plywood for length and width…As for Corner #4..I use #4 to help with the lay outs… Then saw, chop and clea...

So…at least I can do some of the work sitting down on the shop stool.. Like using the Dovetail saw to cut ...

Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #3: Started the dovetail connection

02-04-2022 05:52 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

And..even got one corner done! Started off with some layout, so rounded up the Usual Suspects.. But, in order to hide that groove…needed something extra done Something like this? Leaving a tab behind, that will fill and cover the groove…a bit rough to saw and chop.. This is the outside face. Doing Pins first, as I seem to be better at that way of doing this joint..You can try tails first IF you are so inclined… Not too hateful? I chop out all the waste. Tha...

Baby bow saw #6: Kolrosing

01-02-2021 08:38 PM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

Once the saw was “done” I still wasn’t quite happy with it. I decided it needed decoration. With the light yellow of the citrus wood, the dark brown of coffee grounds made a very pretty contrast. Kolrosing (or kohlrosing) it is! I decided to do a more linear pattern on one side, and a more curvy, or floral pattern on the other, mostly to get more experience and figure out what I like better. I started with the lines. That was yesterday morning. This morning, I made curves. In...

Baby bow saw #3: Wrapping it up

12-27-2020 09:37 PM by Dave Polaschek | 11 comments »

I got the bow saw completed today. I still want to decorate it, but it’s together and functional now. First on today’s menu was getting the arms shaped. They don’t really need to be thinner, but making them a little thinner will make the saw more comfortable to use. I used a drawknife to get the other dimension thinned down and smoothed. With that done, I mixed up some epoxy and glued the pins into the handles. Then some quick chamfering on the corners of the arms, mostly...

Woodworking in America #1: GREAT!!

09-28-2016 12:45 AM by CharlieK | 6 comments »

View on YouTubeI had an amazing time at Woodworking in America. This was my first time there and I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect. As always, one of my biggest concerns was meeting and hanging out with new people and that was NO PROBLEM! Everyone I met was not just friendly, but downright welcoming. I wrote a complete blog article on my website with LOTS of pictures if you want to know more. I hope you don’t mind that I didn’t post all the pictures here. I figured si...
