Small Projects #24: Purpleheart "no leaks" Dugout

04-06-2020 05:43 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

My smoke shop client commissioned some “non swivel” dugouts last week. The problem, she explained, was that the tops come loose and they spill their contents. I made some sliding top dugouts that seemed to work well but the sliders also work loose and may spill (albeit less often). Turning my engineering brain loose on the need I came up with a solution, the two screw top. One screw acts as a pivot, the other is removable as a lock.Who knows what lurks inside? The top is...

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...

Been burning thru my purpleheart inventory making pipes. So I just ordered more from Craftsmen Supply in Ybor City (Tampa) Fl. They have a great selection of exotics and are good folx to deal with.

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...

Spokeshave and Riving Knife Holder for Tool Cabinet

03-28-2020 07:06 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

I’m starting to make the tool holders in my new tool cabinet. I made a video showing how I laid out the spokeshave and riving knife holder. It was a balance of function and making it look nice for displaying my tools. If you have questions, feel free to add a comment and I’ll respond to you. What do you think? https://youtu.be/kbKzc1-A-gw

Shop Cabinet build #6: A little assembly

03-24-2020 04:02 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, last two glued up panels are out of the clamps.. These will be the top and bottom of the case. Decided to go ahead with the assembly. Needed a way to keep the back panel from falling over.. Had to spin the back around, as I’ll be working from the “outside” of the case….a big, old c clamp did the trick…Then figure out which panel to attach first…and how to do it…. First I drilled a bunch of pilot holes. The “fun” was holdi...

I recently repaired a hutch with dozens of wood plugs to remove. I put a video together all about wood plugs, or Bungs as they’re referred to in the shipbuilding industry. I show how to make your own wood plugs and how to properly trim them down. https://youtu.be/BeKOu7ng-HE
