Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 2 comments »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...

End Table, out of Ash #3: worked on the aprons

11-25-2018 05:27 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Managed to get about 1.5 hours in the shop, Saturday….Aprons needed to be S4S, a bead run, tenons laid out…Surfaced 4 Sides…I was going to gang things up, and joint the edges in the vise.. Nice, fluffy shavings….but, this does not get the work done… This plane like to tilt a bit, does not leave a square edge…we have ways.. Stanley No.7c, Type 9 I removed the jig parts from the benchtop…and reset a couple.. I tried the #62 on the face gra...

Got to looking Thursday night ( stuff in the dryer duty, again) angle of the taper didn’t look quite right…was coming out way too low….maybe IF the blanks were a bit thinner? Took about a saw blade width off the two “inside” faces..and redrew the taper….at least it will come out at the 5” mark…..bandsaw to trim the worst off….needed to build a jig to plane the tapers smooth.. This afternoon…finally was able to get a bit of shop...

Wasn’t much better…but I was getting something done… Woke up to this….and it got worse as the day puttered along… Got all the clamps removed…and promptly recycled some….the unclamped end panel made a popping sound when the clamps came off…..Screw I used was too short….. Replaced this 1-1/8” with a 2” long screw..had to wax the threads…Pulled things back together with a clamp, then added the screw to keep thin...

Another box build #2: panels and grooves

11-13-2018 05:13 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Took Sunday off. Was feeling under the weather, and it was Veterans’ Day. Today? Monday or not….things needed to get done….at least something besides all them trips to the bathroom..Finally was able to head to the shop….and, get those two panels out of the clamps. One was a tad narrower than the other. Used that one to get the other sized for width. The blank for the two end panels was also roughly trimmed for width. Then, time to remove the “rou...

Ok, Sunday….nasty, dreary, rainy outside the windows…..even a Hail Storm came through….seems when we get a lot of rain…the Dungeon gets a small creek running across the floor to the floor drain….. Life in a basement….of course, the creek HAS to go through, right where I’m working…. And each rain shower, a new wave would come downstream. Ok…had a door to repair.. I had went ahead and drilled corner for a deep counter bored hole&#...

So..first task for today..after lunch, was to plop the sides onto the bench….and do a trim.. Almost just a slab….edge back by the tool well, was close enough of a match, that just a jointer plane would be needed….the edges cl...
