Shop Cabinet build #8: Build a door

03-28-2020 07:01 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

First, I need a glue up done…two 1×10s hauled to the shop. trimmed down from 4’ to 36-1/8” long, then clamped up and the edges jointed. Then glue the two together, into a panel… needed a few cauls… Should have seen the knots on the ends I cut off.. Let this mess sit a day…had to go out and buy some new 1×4s, anyway…last two were a bit too bowed up…So, took the clamps off.. 2 of the 3 new 1×4 x 6’ boards were hau...

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...

Small Projects #20: Jigsaw Stand

03-23-2020 11:51 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Bought a jigsaw to cut out for a dog bowl five or six years ago. Have only used it once since (interestingly enough to cut another dog bowl). Jigsaws have that stupid blade sticking out and I know for a fact if I remove the blade the next time I go to use it (in another five or six years) I’ll never find the blade. I know I have a blade assortment that I bought when I bought the jigsaw but I have no clue where they might be. The blade means you can’t stand the jig saw up and...

Shop Cabinet build #5: 1 out of the clamps, 2 back in..

03-23-2020 02:16 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Almost like the “1 step forward, 2 steps back?”? Not quite…At least the back panel came out decently… Hmmm, left a pile of c clamps on my bench…Ok, put these away, for now…need the bench space. There was a problem with the two 1×4s I WAS going to use Worse.. Also needed a better 1×10….off to Lowes, and pick out a decent 1×4 x 6’, and a 1×10 x 6’ Then set layout work.. Top and bottom panels but into ...

Shop Cabinet build #4: A solid, glued up back, for a start..

03-22-2020 03:43 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Went through the stack of ten 1×10 x 4’ planks…trying to get 4 “pick of the litters” and haul them to the shop. Goal was to joint the edges, and glue up a panel for the back of the case…..nned to attach racks and things to hold tools in….a 1/4” thick plywood panel just wouldn’t do…. Happen to stand one 4 footer straightup, in the location the new Tool “shed” will go…....something didn’t look quite right&#...

Road Trip today, just had to get out of the house for a bit…..went to Menard’s….and bought a bit of Pine Lumber Might not be enough..but 10pc @ 1×10 x 4’.....should be a start. There are a few 1×4s under that stack.. Couple of 3 footers, and a couple...

Until the test fits showed it would slide in, without getting stuck….Finally happened….so Dug around to find an exact fit drill bit. Turns out that brace can hold normal twist drill bits…center marks on the drawer front, 2-1/4” in from the edge…used a pointy tool to start the bit exactly where I wanted the...

2 drawer chest #9: Monday, monday

03-03-2020 04:39 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Decided to press my luck..normally the Shop is closed on Mondays….Decided to see what I could get done… Removed a bunch of clamps, for one.. Which, with any luck, will get used again, shortly…. Means this drawer is out of the clamps. This is the Bottom of the 2 drawers. It needed the joints cleaned up, leveled, the plywood bottom planed and sanded to match the drawer better…then a few test fits…until it slid in without binding in the case….then ...
