Shop stuff #170: Some drawers for the vanity.

09-08-2019 12:50 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

One of those projects that got put to the side while other things were going on. The bathroom renovation I started last year is still not complete, but every now and then I get a bit of time to do a bit more on it. Earlier this summer I found a few days to get the drawers done for the vanity build. I milled up the wood from maple for the sides, used plywood for the bottom, and of course, used cedar for the fronts to go with the cedar cabinet. I also cut the centre panel from the same boar...

Mitre Box, a rehab story #4: Finally...done

08-07-2019 01:38 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Ok..turned the frame over, cleaned out around where the King bolt’s threads come up through….and soaked those for a day….Knee rehab was rough…came home and took a nap…..Next morning,,,tried again….hmmm,getting fed up….grabbed the hammer, and hit right on the head of that bolt, 6-8 times. Had to drive the tip of the BIG screwdriver into the slot, added a pair of visegrips to assist…Uuuuummpf With a loud ” Creeack” bolt came loose...

Mitre Box, a rehab story #3: New wheel, still soaking

08-05-2019 11:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

New wheel was installed, and put to work.. PITA to change out. Plastic tub for parts was brought down to the shop.. got the stock rests all cleaned up, and shiny…which left two pointy screws to do.. Called stock holders, they have a pointy end, that will grip a board into place, while you saw away..Into the tub these go. The 2 catches from the tops of the guide assemblies, are cleaned up, and re-installed, they also have a patent date stamped into them “10-5-09”...

New desk for my computer #22: hutch done, finish is on, almost done

08-02-2019 03:42 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

except for hauling this thing out of the shop to where it will call “home”...Hutch came out of the clamps, sanded things down, added screws in the top… Just in case someone wants to pick up the desk by the top of the hutch….ran the round-over bit around a bit, and set the hutch on the desk… While I figure out how to get everything stained…everything that will show… Took a while, let this sit until the stain dried. Got to thinking..( dangero...

New desk for my computer #21: we have a glue up

07-30-2019 04:02 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

First,clamps came off everything ( and nothing fell apart…)I bought a package of brass screws…among other items goal here was to add a couple screw into each glue joint. Drill a few pilot holes, countersink the holes a bit, wax the screws and drive them home, then sand each side…. As I don’t trust just glue for these joints. ( and I only snapped one screw head off..) Cubby Hole Assembly was then clamped in place…this is where that hammer came in…...

New desk for my computer #17: Last drawer, top worked on, stain...

07-23-2019 04:42 PM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Ok, bought the last bit of plywood for the last drawer. Was looking to buy just a 2’x2’ square of 1/4” plywood….looked at the stuff Lowes had….more like a pinup picture, not a flat one in the lot. looked at the 5mm Luann 2’ x 4’ panels,,,,dollar more, but at least it was flat….got it home.. Shame to use this for a drawer bottom? used the bottom right corner…will save the rest for something that shows..Right hand drawer is out of t...

New desk for my computer #16: More drawers to do

07-22-2019 12:38 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Got the clamps off of Drawer #3 and #4, this morning while the shop was still cool…Had to clean the sides up a bit.. Jack plane to get it close….then.. A #3 sized smooth plane to smooth things out…worked on both drawers…had an issue as to what one goes where… Got that straightened out. All edges got sanded, then the fronts got a coat of stain, and their handles installed.. Will do, for now..( I marked the inside of each drawer, as to which went where...

New desk for my computer #14: Build a drawer

07-18-2019 05:05 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, most of the parts are ready? Well, the sides needed just a few more things done..Cleaned the dados, so the backs fit all the way in… Just happened to have the right width chisel, for that. Pilot holes for screws to attach the sides to the back.. Even the drill was “Vintage”....then flip the sides over, and do a countersink… Why change bits, just change drill and all…there is a bevel to the bottom corner.. Makes inserting a drawer into it’...

New desk for my computer #12: Drawer start up..

07-15-2019 01:33 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took 2 people to get the desk down off my tablesaw, yesterday. Took a couple trips up and down the stairs, hauling planks of 1×6 pine (3) and an Ash 1×6 ( best looking one of the lot) and other items…. Had work for the saw…cut enough blanks for the 4 main drawers…. Yes, there are 6 blanks of Ash sitting there….I picked out the 4 best… As for the other two? They had an issue with a knot… I doubt IF I want this in a drawer front. ...

New desk for my computer #11: Top cleaned up, and installed

07-14-2019 01:10 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Sounds simple and easy enough to do? Remove the clamps from the glued up top….only sounds was from a couple of the cawls…creak. Laid the top onto the desk….and scraped away the dried glue….we have ways.. Stanley #70 scraper. Was made to remove painted on shipping labels, from wooden crates. Works great for dried glue, price tags, bar codes they print onto the wood…. Couple of clamps to keep things from walking away….between a beltsander, and a ...
