Small Projects #34: Cat Can Corral

01-08-2021 11:36 PM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

The better half asked for a corral for the cat food cans on the kitchen counter. The design was to be as simple as possible and leave no hiding spots for any potential miniature livestock. Because of the size of the cans the corner support space was limited. To maximize both internal space and strength the side slats are dado’d into the 45° corner posts instead of overlaying as in a normal crate. The carton the cans come in is 7”x14” and allows 1-7/8” vertical space...

Handy tools #13: Quick mortar & pestle

12-27-2020 09:24 PM by Dave Polaschek | 6 comments »

I wanted to do some kolrosing (or kohlrosing) on my baby bow saw but the coffee grounds I got from my sweetie were far too coarse. So I whipped up this quick mortar and pestle from a piece of ash and a pine board. The pine board is awfully soft for a mortar, but it did the trick today. The pestle works pretty well, and I expect the end grain to get awfully brown since I’ll only be using it to grind coffee grounds to powder. It’s pretty handy having a lathe around to knock out other...

Old Projects #7: Super Strong Bookcase

12-21-2020 09:20 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This was a bookcase that was to support heavy loads without sagging. The front of the shelves was trimmed with a piece of 1×2 that acts both as a decoration and a stiffener. The back shelf support is hidden. Each shelf has a tongue milled into the back edge. The back (1/4” ply) is made in consecutive pieces so the back looks like one piece but is really three. The tongue and the separate pieces form a stressed web structure to support the back side. End View of Shelf Support ...

Old Projects #6: Slant Top Desk

12-21-2020 08:34 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This is a desk I built. The legs are store bought and biscuited into the frame. The trim on top prevents things from falling off and adds a nice visua; touhc. The open slots are big enough to hold 8-1/2” x 11” sheets. Its built from cheap pine stained with … some dark color stain. Slant top opens with piano hinge. Top detail shows pencil groove. Apron bead is sorta my style mark. I put it on lots of projects just because. Picture stand to left is another pr...

Blanket Chest Project #10: Day #10/11

11-14-2020 12:55 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Kind of combining the two sessions…neither were all that long…. Decided to go ahead and glue the chest up….had all the clamps ready..I thought…Started by taking the dry fit apart…except, I left one end in place. Applied to to the other end’s tongue, and clamped that in place with just a c clamp…..then the other end could be removed, glued, and installed…. Then a bead of glue along the remaining two tongues….and then the Brigade of...

Blanket Chest Project #8: Day 8, 2 steps forward, one step back

11-11-2020 05:15 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, the projected Start time was 1300hrs….was. Trip to the store for grocery items….came back home, and tried to get a jig built… I had just got that piece of Pine scrap ripped for width, the 1/2” plywood was cut for length (to match the pine piece’s length) and was trying to joint a decent edge …..A roofing contractor, sent by the Landlord, was here to “measure” my roof, and get an estimate for a new metal roof for the house….wait...

Blind Dovetails? #4: Make it into a box?

10-31-2020 04:42 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, the whole point of this little project, was to learn HOW to make a “Double Lap Blind Dovetail Joint” or however you want to label it… Made a few mistakes along the way….part of the process, I guess. Each corner seemed to get better as I went merrily along…. So….maybe a few grooves to house a lid panel, and a bottom panel….had other tasks for the Stanley 45 in mind, so This old woodie will do. Was at one time part of a Tongue & G...

Blind Dovetails? #3: Day #4

10-29-2020 03:37 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

About the same as the last two days…I skipped Day #3, because I was too tired to go to the shop….even with hand tools, sometimes brain farts will happen….better to show up all rested up….with the brain fully engaged… had the lay out line wrong…moved it forward and try again….Sawing….careful, otherwise you’ll saw too far….better just to barely nick things, then come in with the “Kerf Knife” You can see a couple spo...

Blind Dovetails? #2: day 2...a little better

10-28-2020 04:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Found out a couple items….on the end of most bevel gauges, the blade ends at an angle… Which also matches the angles I use for my dovetails. I can simply leave the blade locked out straight with the handle. I can lay that blade along the rebate….and lay out the pins.. So, if I start with a half pin on each edge, and work towards the center…. I even gained another pin! Then, while using the No. 68 Dovetail saw….IF I also used the putty knife as a ke...
