A Table for the Gazebo #2: Glue up the top

05-16-2021 06:48 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Need to joint the edges, first.. Had a choice between Jointer planes….settled on the smaller Millers Falls No.15…..instead of the heavier Stanley No.7c…... Watching how the grain is running….first edge done. Get a couple more edges done. I can use one edge to check another… Top one has a slight bow to it….might be able to caul that out? Kept laying the boards out, trying for best grain matches.. Even used line up marks…. Finally,...

Saw Till #1: Panel glue up and dovetail side panels to bottom

05-04-2021 04:30 PM by controlfreak | 1 comment »

So I decided to make a saw till to gather up saws that live in random places around my shop. This is an ongoing shop organizing and skill building endeavor. Lots of thought has gone into the size and joinery and I have a rough sketch but it is mostly without dimensions so I am pretty much letting form be my guide. It will have one wide drawer or two narrower drawers on the bottom for saw files and blade replacements. Larger saws one one side smaller back saws on the other and maybe room to h...

MaFe hand jointer - for small parts (blog)

04-24-2021 03:42 PM by mafe | 10 comments »

MaFe hand jointerfor small parts. The other day I were buying some tools from the, I saw Veritas had made a jig, that made it possible to use their rabbet plane, as a small hand jointer. I don’t have a Veritas rabbet plane, but I do have a beautiful old Record 311, so the rest was just two hours at the workshop, making up a MaFe version for this. I often make small boxes and especially on these projects, I could use a way to make some perfectly squared up adjustments, on ...

Ladder for Towels? #3: Started on the sides

04-18-2021 12:26 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Foot ends were laid out.. Turns out I’ll have to come back and make a second cut… Anyway, top ends were sanded to match each other’s curves…which left the edges to joint so they also matched.. Hmm, I don’t think that little smooth plane will do this job… Time to bring out the real jointer….sides are 49-1/2” long…Stanley No. 8 is 24” long….should work.. However, it is not much of a smooth plane….and I wa...

The beginning... #1: New tablesaw (to me)

04-02-2021 09:10 PM by Busy_dad | 0 comments »

Recently I was checking out Craigslist and I’m always looking for tablesaws. Usually hoping for that once in a lifetime deal on a nice cabinet saw. But I came across an old craftsman that had a few extras that caught my eye. I already have an old craftsman that I inherited from my dad, so I wasn’t really interested in the saw, but it came with: a biesemeyer fence, a hitachi TR12 router, incra jig ultra (not the LS), a speed controller for the router, and a shop fox mobile base. ...

Recycle a few scraps #1: Getting to a glue up...

03-20-2021 11:55 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

One of the chores in the last few projects, is ripping a panel, or just a plank, to get to a certain width. usually results in a strip of scrap…..that for some reason or other, I just can’t throw out. After a while, there is a pile of the strips of scraps…too small to do much more than a few cauls….which get tossed away once the clamps are done with them… So…some thinking was done, dangerous I know…about gluing up a panel of those scraps…t...

A Project for March #8: Build a drawer

03-14-2021 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laundry Detail this afternoon…meant about 3 hours in the shop, while the Laundry got done… Last glue up was removed from the clamps… Not too bad? Means I can better size the parts to the drawer. Front needed a trim on the ends, and a swipe or two along an edge….same with the 2 sides. Already had one corner dovetailed… So, now I needed to get the other end dovetailed…Same as before..Lay out the pins, first.. Saw the lines… Cut a k...

A Project for March #4: Last sides done, things trimmed for size

03-08-2021 08:58 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

These two.. Are out of the clamps… Handsome, ain’t they? Checked to see IF they match up to each other… of course, they don’t….we have ways… Place them in the vise together, Millers Falls No. 11 Junior Jack to plane until they DO match….so, how do the match up with the back panel? As usual….Mark a line, joint down to that line, check with a straight edge.. Ok…need to trim the back and sides…and for square.. Firs...
