Small Projects #49: 5 minute camera stand

07-05-2021 01:04 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Got a WiFi cam that came with a metal bracket that wouldn’t stand on its own. Made this small hex stand out of some 4” wide scrap. I set my miter gauge to 30° & stop block so the blade cuts just past the rough centerline. Flip & repeat and I’ve got a point. Set rip fence to board width and run thru with each of the bevels. Total of four cuts and perfect hex. WiFi Cam Stand. A quick pass with an ogee bit on the table router and the edges are profiled. You can...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #6: Slips are showing, round-overs done

06-16-2021 07:42 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

So…started up the mitersaw…and cut four slips for length. Each gets a bead of glue, and a couple clamps….started on the longer sides, attempting to pull the bowed in side back out to straight…then work my way around from there… Some joints were better.. But, always seems to be That One… Oh well…going to be covered with a plywood floor above, and a brass foot below. Set this aside for a day..Removed the 3 main clamps from the lid blank.. ...

Workshop build out #4: Tablesaw and router table cart

06-16-2021 01:14 PM by Savlaka | 0 comments »

So in setting up my shop the way I want to, I am putting most of the major tools that take up floor space onto carts. This time it is my tablesaw and an extension for the router to act as a router table.I am making the extension to more or less work with the tablesaw’s existing fence, both to extend my cut capacity on the saw, and to not have another tool table to have to make space for. The main cart is basic pine, cheap furring strips from the local Lowes, cut square there needed. ...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #5: Out of the clamps, lid work

06-15-2021 06:25 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, clamps can come back off…SLOWLY.. First 8..only leaves.. The 4 longer ones. I left the spacers inside…as one side wanted to bow in a bit..still, clean up began… Beltsander to trim down any longer fingertips…smooth plane to level the rest…worked my way all around the outside of the box….also, checked on how well the grain flowed around the corners…I hope..Corner #1… #2 (note the fat finger?) I THINK this is #3 corner… ...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #4: Last corner done, dry fit, then the glue and Clamp Flash Mob

06-15-2021 01:11 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, rest of the corners at done… This was Corner #3…but it was the last of the corners milled…same as before…Enough that I could put all four corners together into a dry fit… So, how did the last corner turn out? The one on the right. Not too hateful? While I had this all set up, had a stack of clamps stop by….needed to get preset, as to which sized clamp can be used… Just 8 clamps? Hmm….we’ll see….noted I would need...

Small Projects #48: Jatoba Strong Box Finished!

06-14-2021 05:25 AM by Madmark2 | 6 comments »

Friend asked me to build a cash box. Something small enough to fit under a bed but still capable of holding significant amounts of cash in a neat and orderly fashion. Strong boxes have a long history. They are often metal banded and reinforced and are designed to resist attack. Being wood, fire can breach the structure. However, being a paper money storage strong box, fire will destroy the contents, defeating the purpose. Completed Strong Box. Build details below … I tried t...

A Table for the Gazebo #8: Time for a PIP

05-31-2021 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Once things were sanded and planed smooth..was time for a coat of stain to be brushed on…. Some spots needed a bit more than others…..wasn’t just a plane, or a sander used.. I also gave the Stanley No. 80 a little work. Each of these 3 tools were used where they fit best. Had to clean out the shop a bit….so I could set the table up on the tablesaw, rather a towel sitting on the tablesaw’s top. Wanted to be able to rotate the table, without scratching ...

A Table for the Gazebo #7: Bread board ends, drawer building

05-28-2021 11:26 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Clamps came off the panel for the top of the table…..ends need to be flat and squared up. Too awkward to do the square up with the tablesaw….not really wanting to handsaw it, either….set to work with the panel clamped to the top of the tablesaw….and let a jack plane and the beltsander go to work ( new belt, too) With the grain with the sander, along the glue lines….jack plane does it’s thing going across the grain…worked over one face, then flip...

Rest of the mortises..went something like this.. Lay out was simple….however,,Father Murphy decided that he would pay a visit..today…. Ooops…not a biggie, hole will get covered by the table’s top. Got all 4 square holes chopped, test fitted…decided to glue things together.. Then…feeling good…decided to glue the other end up..Then…the 2 long sides were glued up.. So far so good? Wait for it….I notched and glued in the runners...
