A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #12: Monday, busy Monday

05-10-2022 02:31 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Normally, the shop is closed on Mondays…but..decided to take a chance, anyway..first, I figure IF I merely cleaned the place up a bit…that wouldn’t count as “work”. Bench was getting a bit messy… Hmmm, took a bit… but a lot of this stuff needed to be put away, as I wasn’t using these things, anyway…so I did have to get out a couple items.. Because the drawer sides needed drilled and counter sinks done...3 screws to hold the drawe...

A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #10: Drawer build, part 1

05-08-2022 05:28 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Had aGulley-washer roll through…which sometimes means… That the Dungeon Creek will rise…this is also where the table base was sitting. Yep, Got it’s feet wet. Removed all the clamps, set the top and the base on the tablesaw, for now..Tried the drawer front for size…not quite…needed jointed down a bit.. As there was a “high spot” in the middle… High spot is now on the floor…test the fit, again.. I think that will do....

Chippendale Style Chairs #1: Making Cabriole Legs

05-07-2022 11:06 PM by Dennis Zongker | 11 comments »

I’m making two Chippendale style side chairs, to go with the hallway table that I have already designed and made. The design of these chairs are similar in style with the same grape & leaf carvings with scrolls. Both the chairs and hallway table are made out of American black walnut. I’ve been working on the Back splat and crest rail, it sure is a lot of fun and a challenge so far. Thank you for looking and happy woodworking! Gluing up the four legs. Jointing the...

A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #4: taper the legs

04-30-2022 02:05 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

I guess to be considered “Shaker Style”....legs need to have tapers done…so Lay out a cut line. Trying for a 1” square foot….then line up with the stop line at the top…Next…remove the waste. Norm Abram made a jig for his tablesaw….older way was with a powered jointer…still older would be to use a hand plane, start at the foot, and work back towards the top….. I don’t have the jig anymore, and do not have a jointer ...

A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #3: Legs, just..legs

04-29-2022 02:10 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First, I need to rip some blanks about 20” or so long. I had the 2 cut-offs from the top’s planks,,, Yep, 20” just missed the split ends….one fell apart while I sawed the scrap off…and, just in case…I cut a 20” long section out of plank #3,,,again, just missing the bad end….Had to use the D-100 again….hadn’t moved the table top just yet… Was easier with the handsaw, anyway. Now that the tablesaw is cleared off…...

A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #2: Top needs jointed and glued up

04-28-2022 02:00 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Clamped the first board into the leg vise,,,,add a clamp.. So things stay put. Since everybody is always saying how good one of these planes is… And since the board is only 24” long…I’d thought I would give it a try….It has issues, with wanting to lean….and is hard to balance. Cuts find. That steel yardstick? makes a nice straight edge to check for gaps…or high spots…Set this plane aside, and got out a real Jointer plane… ...

A Shaker Table, 2022 version #2: Jointer work, glue up, that sort of thing

04-09-2022 12:29 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Edges needed jointed.. Boards are 33”..plane is 24”...Leg vise to hold one end, a c clamp for the other… IF this rocks…there is a high spot in the middle, somewhere….I can also look for any gaps…goal is to get one full shaving the length of the board.. Get one edge done, mark it and set aside…repeat for the edge that will get glued to the first edge… Board on top has a bit of a bow, otherwise, no gaps….keep working through all ...

Better Shop Series #5: Easy Jointer Tune Up and Set Up

02-11-2022 04:01 PM by TimberBiscuit | 0 comments »

To round out the week we have the Jointer! In this video, I’ll show you how to do a quick basic tune-up on your jointer. I’ll go over the basics of how to check and adjust the blades, how to test the infeed and outfeed tables for coplanar, and how to get the fence square so your jointer can make quick work of milling those boards. Every few months, these adjustments should be made to keep your jointer running smoothly and accurately. I hope this video helps you get your join...
