This beam bore was really crooked. I’m putting it back on the straight and narrow.

A NEW, Improved Saw Til #7: a door for the til, part 1

05-01-2020 02:15 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

A 3 hour shop time, yesterday. Cut a wedge shaped side, to match the one already cut. Then clamp the two together, and joint the sawn edges so they are the same.. Jointer being the Stanley No. 6 Then set these two aside. Next, rip the parts needed to build a frame around a plywood panel. 1-3/4” wide…joint the saw marks smooth. Then set up the cleaned up Stanley #45 with a #14 cutter.. Because it matched the thickness of the plywood panel. Clamp a stile or rai...

A new til for the hand planes #6: First drawer in the clamps

04-13-2020 05:24 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Took most of Sunday afternoon…but, didn’t have anything else going on…was “safer” in the shop, anyway.. First off…all those parts for 3 drawers needed fitted to the opening they were going to reside in…Sides needed their ends squared up better…and each pair had to match…they also needed the edges jointed to match each other, and still fit into the space they were to call home.. Like these two. Wound up clamping each pair in the vis...

Laguna 8" Parallelogram Jointer co-planer table adjustments

04-10-2020 12:20 PM by whope | 3 comments »

I’ve had my Laguna 8” parallelogram jointer for 3 1/2 years and decided that I should see if it needed adjusting. I’ve been mostly happy with the performance (my review), even though I man-handled it getting it off the pallet. I ordered a Veritas 38” straightedge. The 50” would have been nicer, but for more than double the price for an extra 12” (and I just spent a lot of $ on ordering a new table saw), I decided 38” would be fine. I also picked up a...

Shop Cabinet build #10: Clamps came off, build-a-door #2, and other stuff

03-31-2020 08:27 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

All clamps came off. 1×4s hauled to the shop…supplies laid out, even found a full box of 2” long, coarse thread screws…. So, laid the 1×4 x 6’ down on the mitre box…find the center…should leave 2 pieces at 36” long…in theory I can’t hold the saw in a “death grip”...makes sawing go better…also use the entire length…not just more teeth, it keeps the wear on just the middle section of the saw to a min...

Workbench #2: Dovetail and tail vise

03-30-2020 11:25 AM by JimYoung | 8 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...

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 #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 ...
