Kitchen Island Project #3: 1st panel trimmed up, and a cut list

06-06-2020 04:19 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Managed to draw up a cut list, of sorts… Ink was barely dry…when I had to make a change. Glad Fred Flintstone didn’t carve the list in stone…list is more of a guide….Case in point. After the 1st panel had been squared up….the size did a few changes…Per the list: 3/4” x 23-1/2” x 39” As glued up: 3/4” x 24” x 40” As trimmed square: 3/4” x 21-5/8” x 38-5/8” Because of a new, roll-around...

Kitchen Island Project #2: 1st panel glued up

06-05-2020 04:29 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Cut list says I need a 23” x 39” panel for the top of the Island…Hauled 4 planks to the shop, about 4’ long….By the time I had trimmed them to about 40”....and did a straight-line rip…..to 5-7/8” width….was coming up a bit short of the 23” width…..Hauled another plank to the shop…this one had a large split on one end….figured I could do a couple rips, to get a decent strip as a filler….will keep the other 2 st...

Block Plane Box, version 2 #2: A sliding lid

05-28-2020 04:09 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

So, on to the other end of this box…. Needed to know where the groove for the lid will be, height-wise….so I could cut the end to size… Only needed dovetails to go this far up. Just to the bottom of the groove. first corner came out great..but “Concentration..slip away..” Notice where the groove is….and how the pins go? WRONG WAY…Not only did the dummy mark things out wrong, he went and cut them wrong, too….only to discover when c...

Block Plane Box, version 2 #1: Starting up

05-27-2020 03:32 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was getting tired of box joints…so…decided on through dovetails, as a change…laid out more of the Pine resaw stock Hmmm, resaw was a little “off”....we have ways.. Stanley No. 110 Bottlecap. Named because the cap iron wheel to tighten things down, looks like a bottle cap…Laid out the usual suspects…with a few newer faces.. Instead of the big Kobalt Utility knife…a slim Xacto knife. Instead of the big Disston No.4 backsaw…a sma...

Shop stuff #189: Fancy root veggie bin part 3

05-23-2020 12:57 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Oh my! A lot of work to get very little done. Mistakes are made and not for the last time. Oh well, we work our way through them. This series contains measurements and descriptions and suggestions of alternate methods so you can build this thing yourself. It is a pretty long and detailed series, but I hope I am editing enough to make it entertaining. I think every woodworker will have experienced some errors in their work. I wanted to convey the same situation and not have this series ...

Block plane box #4: Box #2, lid completed

05-21-2020 08:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Not working as fast or as long as I used to…but…had the parts all cross cut to size…time to start making box joints Used this 1/4” chisel, to lay out the fingers….then a bandsaw to make a lot of cuts…seems to help when I chop the waste out…. Got these two corners done…then the Boss needed to go to the store…came back and tried the last two corners… When I laid out the fingers for the #3 corner….somehow the part got fli...

Block plane box #3: Box #2

05-20-2020 03:21 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Not moving too well….the face plant on my sidewalk ( sober, BTW) seems to have messed a few parts I need to move..in order to build a box or two..Fingers on the box were a bit wider, than before….less chopping required. Managed to get the 4 sides to where I could glue them up…and add the bottom to the box…. May have had too many clamps..as the sides bowed in a bit… Got the box all sanded square and smooth…and did a test fit…to see which plane ...

Stickley Coat Rack #1: Rough Cut, Milling, and Shaping

05-17-2020 05:09 PM by WirelessWoodworker | 2 comments »

My next project is going to be a fairly simple Stickley style coat rack or coat tree maybe it’s called. We enter our house via the garage door probably 90% of the time and our coat closet it by the front door, which is through our dining room from the garage, sooo… obviously most of our coats don’t actually make it to the closet – they end up draped over the backs of the dining room chairs. I wanted to tidy this up a bit, so thought I’d just go out and buy a cheap free-standing coat r...

Block plane box #2: Lid is done, first box done..

05-14-2020 03:33 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

At this rate, it might be Labor Day when the last one is done…..IF I don’t buy any more of the little things.. Went with a wider chisel, fewer fingers to do. Instead of 1/8”, now about 1/4” wide…..matches the thickness of the Pine boards… Bandsaw to make a lot of short cuts, easier to chop out. I can control the cuts better, and see how they look better. All 4 corners were done, so a glue up was made, without the “topper”...then, on...

Block plane box #1: Why a box?

05-12-2020 01:42 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well….I do have a couple block planes still with their oem boxes…Not sure I’d do something like that one. The other box is a bit ratty… And it will only hold one plane…but…Thought I could resaw the scrap Pine boards in the shop, down to 1/4” thick, and make a few boxes to store some of my block plane “collection” in….have 14 ( last count) but maybe just the better ones will get their own little box… Some of the resaws&#...
