A Table for the Gazebo #8: Time for a PIP

05-31-2021 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Once things were sanded and planed smooth..was time for a coat of stain to be brushed on…. Some spots needed a bit more than others…..wasn’t just a plane, or a sander used.. I also gave the Stanley No. 80 a little work. Each of these 3 tools were used where they fit best. Had to clean out the shop a bit….so I could set the table up on the tablesaw, rather a towel sitting on the tablesaw’s top. Wanted to be able to rotate the table, without scratching ...

A Table for the Gazebo #7: Bread board ends, drawer building

05-28-2021 11:26 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Clamps came off the panel for the top of the table…..ends need to be flat and squared up. Too awkward to do the square up with the tablesaw….not really wanting to handsaw it, either….set to work with the panel clamped to the top of the tablesaw….and let a jack plane and the beltsander go to work ( new belt, too) With the grain with the sander, along the glue lines….jack plane does it’s thing going across the grain…worked over one face, then flip...

Got all 4 square holes chopped, test fitted…decided to glue things together.. Then…feeling good…decided to glue the other end up..Then…the 2 long sides were glued up.. So far so good? Wait for it….I notched and glued in the runners...

Ladder for Towels? #2: Beads....just...beads

04-16-2021 10:10 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

A late night return to the shop, I was just going to see about setting things up, and have it ready to go, this morning Best laid plans….. I figured a way to hold the treads/rungs safely to the bench…at least so two types of planes could work…solution? Was to drill a hole through each tenon. Hole will not show once the ladder is glued up..Gave things a trial run, as the underside needed a few swipes with the smooth plane, anyway. Might as well get things smoothe...

A Project for March #9: Almost done

03-16-2021 01:47 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Set up a sander, to remove burn marks, and overlong dovetails… Made sure this table was square to the platten,,,, Burn marks on the lid are gone. Clamps on the drawer are too. Sanded the corners smooth, all four of them, and tried a dry fit into the case… Didn’t want to shove it all the way in…in case it gets stuck….there was an issue, though….bottom of the drawer was a bit too long…needed trimmed down a bit…we have ways.. Juni...

Load up the washer, unload the clamps.. Work on cleaning up the corner joints…will address the front of the plywo...

Dealing with a blank wall #10: Almost done,handles, latches, and and a stain

02-21-2021 02:24 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a series of tasks to do….remove the clamps from the doors…drill 2 holes for the two knobs… Glue and clamp into place…and let sit a while. In order to install these mounting brackets… I had a problem, again… Bracket at the bottom was easy enough to do…pilot holes, even. Towel rod was a bit in the way, mehBut to do the top bracket…inside the case, underneath the top of the case… The drill will not fit here. So, while t...

Dealing with a blank wall #9: Door #2 done...problems arise

02-20-2021 02:34 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Yep, Door #2 came out of the clamps looking great… Even the inside looked better… Figured I could set both doors on the case, just to see how things would look… Hmmm…something wasn’t quite right…tried to set both doors..but they would not line up with either the top or bottom shelves AND the sides of the case….got to checking the case itself…..1/4” out of square…grrr. Decided to at least install one door…Hinge tools...

Dealing with a blank wall #5: Beads and Grooves..

02-14-2021 01:49 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

ran the parts through the saw…to thin them down to 3/4” thick….means a thin push stick was needed.. Nothing fancy…but it keep my fingers away from that spinning blade…After letting these sit a day, came back and sorted through the mess.. Think I found two nice long ones, to cut into rails… And 4 that should be good enough for the stiles….they did need trimmed a bit, and to where they matched each other….one way would be.. gang them u...

Box for a Combo Plane #6: Lid installed, and a PIP ?

02-03-2021 11:45 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, first…those two packages…..one has the Long Rods… Still not quite as long as the later models, but these are almost double the length I had. Yes, they do thread into the main stock’s body….later models, the rods just slid on through. The other package? Contained the Main Body Depth Stop…..I can live with the threaded version just fine….the OEM Non-threaded ones are a bit hard to fine….and $$$ to get….These two packages gave me...
