Box from Ash scraps #5: Out of the clamps, and a PIP

03-25-2019 09:08 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was finally able to get some shop time Sunday….first part was before Lunch…Box was removed from the forest of clamps….long fingers were sanded down flush….and a few high spots were also lowered a bit….right before Lunch.. Marked and cut out a lid from the glued up panel….marked out, and cut a 1/4” plywood panel for a bottom and glued that in place…using the bench’s vise to hold things tight, while the glue dried, and I had some Lunch&...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #1: Part 1 : The Chassis

03-25-2019 12:09 AM by Jason1974 | 10 comments »

Gents, so I decided to start another project. I had a huge chuck of cherry on my wood carts so I decided to mill it down and make something with it. Haven’t decided what other woods to use but I think I’m going to make the wheels out of walnut for the tyres and maple for the rims. I also have a small chunk of bloodwood I would like to incorporate into the build. Maybe I’ll use it for the seats. ............. Thanks for watching!!!.

Box from Ash scraps #3: Box joint 101 ?

03-22-2019 10:34 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Where was I? Been busy cutting box joints, by hand….so..got the 2 longer side panels to match each other, with things all nice and squared up….clamped them together for the next few steps….made a line showing where the ends will go…carried that all around..Have a 6mm chisel to use, to get the spacing about right…then used a small square.. square a line across both panels, and down the sides a bit….need these lines to guide the saw.. had to lower the...

Box from Ash scraps #2: In and out of the clamps

03-20-2019 06:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Getting panels made, then cleaned up out of the clamps.. Started with this, and cleaned it up.. Sander and planes to get things flat and almost smooth…reused the clamps.. And a third panel was glued up….came back the next day… Removed all of these, and cleaned this long panel up..along with #3 #4 was jointed and clamped up.. And set aside…next day, got #4 cleaned up, box was looking a little odd…decided I could build two boxes by cross cutting a...

Box from Ash scraps #1: Start up

03-20-2019 07:03 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, a little background on this one….just before all those trips to the Hospital happened…I had a bunch of leftovers from the Desk project….even had the better looking pieces all resawn down to 3/8” stuff….then, once I was allowed to work IN the shop, Chester Drawers Project started up…. So…now I have the time to putter around with the Ash boards.. Picked out 4 that almost matched each other…jointed the ends, trimmed a couple for length&#...

Chester Drawers build #13: Drawers done, and a PIP

03-04-2019 02:58 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok…issues with the drawer not wanting to close all the way…..seems the back of the drawer was a hair too wide…was finally able to repair the beltsander’s plug, so the beltsander was used to narrow the back of the drawer…drawer slid right in.. So…the other two drawer backs got an 1/8” removed in length. Plywood panels had been bought…and cut to size, almost…had to remove that 1/8” off of them as well…new box of 1-5/8”...

Chester Drawers build #12: milled 3 drawers, assembled one

03-03-2019 04:56 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Bright and early this morning…at least for me….Switched out router bits, and set the depth…where to clamp three drawer fronts at, to run the router? Hmmm….might work…will have to switch ends to get the clamped areas done.. Didn’t take that long, and I had three drawer fronts ready for the next steps… Plan was to get everything done on the fronts, all three of them, before doing the sides…so made a jig….can hold the fronts in pl...

Two Big Burls

03-02-2019 11:58 PM by Grumpy | 6 comments »

I have had these two burls for 3-4 years or more, so they were nice and hard and seasoned by the time I got around to giving them the chop. One is iron bark & not sure about the other.The problem was I liked the look of them the way they were so it took all that time to think about what was inside. .The iron bark one was too tough for one chainsaw, it threw in the towel. Had to buy a new electric one which did the job well. The electric saw is good for keeping the noise down for the ne...

Chester Drawers build #11: 3 drawer prep, and a jig

03-02-2019 03:21 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was house sitting for most of the day….until about Suppertime. Started to haul a few 1×8s to the shop…one at a time…and cross cut the good, from the bad spots, and the ugly spots….Bad ones were large knots, causing a board to warp…cut those out….the ugly ones? Just no way I can trust or use something like this….First two 1×8 x 8’ boards were cut up,, left me with a few blanks for the drawer fronts… A few blanks for drawer...

Chester Drawers build #10: Drawer Building 101, first drawer

02-27-2019 07:37 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

rather than use a saw to do these dovetails….went with a router….but, with a slight twist….as I do NOT have a dovetail jig anymore, don’t even have the collar. So..I measured a “stop line”.. This is where the router base needs to stop…have tried a batten…battens move, however.. Vise doesn’t. Router is set up for depth.. From here, everything is freehanded…spacings are by eye.. Then remove from the vise, and make a kni...
