A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #8: Mortises, lots of them

05-04-2022 08:57 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I guess the socket a dovetail’s tail goes into could also be called mortise? Lunch was going to be way late, DoorDash foul-up….spent 2 hours in the shop, today….mainly beating on chisels, and trying to get saws to work… Had 2 sticks to work on….once they were cut down to the correct length… One will get stubby little tenons on each end…the other will get dovetail “tails” on each end After trying the bandsaw to see how well it cut...

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 #11: Drawer is done..PIP?

02-12-2022 05:40 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Clamps came off, today…nothing flew apart….always a good sign. There was an issue, with the back of the drawer.. 2 square holes, where the groove for the bottom panel is showing through….Although this IS the back of a drawer, decided to cut a couple Rosewood plugs to fit….and see how that fixes things.. What holes? Drawer front got a light pass or two from a smooth plane. Ends didn’t look too bad… Just gave them a sanding. sanded the top an...

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...

Well, first a Plan was looked over, then Episode #4 was watched,,then some time in the shop..The Plan.. Was to start building the drawer for this little box…Sounds simple, enough….Noticed when Sellers get the front all dovetailed up…the Episode ended…Ok… So, headed to the shop, had drawer parts to size….figure out which will be the drawer’s Front, which will be the back. Marked the Front as to the “inside”. made sure it fit the ope...

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...
