Building Closet Doors, Appliques, HVLP Spraying, Installing...

There’s a lot of work packed into this 21 minute video I just published. This was a custom closet door project and I’m showing the process starting at the lumber yard to the end where you see the customer reaction. It’s almost the perfect length of video to make a 30 minute TV show… if HGTV would be interested in some craftsmanship. Here’s what’s covered if you’re interested in a part or all of it:- selecting lumber in the lumber yard- rail and s...

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 #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 ...

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...

Getting the side panels finished up. Also giving suggestions on alternative things you may want to do as I go along. Yup, it’s fancier than need be for its intended purpose, but hey, why not? I’m enjoying the process. https://youtu.be/MBg7jzwOMgU

Small Projects #31: Rolling Printer Stand

05-08-2020 05:06 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Most of the “stands” I create are simple 2X4 & ply creations and this is no exception. However this is one is for our home office and needed to be a little less Spartan. Its the exact height of the computer table – and rolls! The printer is an hp all-in-one with scanner and such. Because of this it needs a minimum 18” height when the scan lid is open. I mad the shelf 20” to give some clearance. The raw 2×4s were planed down to 1-1/4 to remove th...

A NEW, Improved Saw Til #9: Door for the til, part 3

05-05-2020 05:11 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, discovered I had glued the frame/collar to the wrong face of the door….not a biggie…I can make a picture frame and cover the problem. First stick. I also reinforced most of the glue joints with screws, sitting in counter-bores. Big red circle is one of 2 blow-outs from hitting knots in the grooves.. Worked my way around. Bought two 8’ sections of Chair Rail molding…Glue and nails to install.. Mitersaw in use? Stanley #358. I had a strip of thi...

A NEW, Improved Saw Til #8: a door for the til, part 2

05-04-2020 03:51 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Not getting as much shoptime, right now…other things keep getting in the way. Needed a top and bottom for the door, once the door was out of the clamps. They needed to go between the side pieces I cut out, earlier. Needed a square cut, and cut to fit Swung this back to 90 degrees. The bottom was just a 1×1…the top was a 1×4. The 1×4 needed a bevel, to match the sides…..we have ways.. Stanley No. 12-004, Made in England…aka No. 4c. made...
