A Table for the Gazebo #5: Mortises, two ways

05-21-2021 07:03 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I was going to do Olde School and chisel/chop them out.. Was taking way too long…Thought there MIGHT be a quicker way….Seems the tenons are 3/8” thick….hmmm I do have a decently sharp 3/8” Forstner bit….I’d still have to lay out the mortises the same way….then clean the mortise out with a chisel.. Seemed to go a little quicker… about 3 this way, to 1 the other way….able to get a few dry fits, too… Even t...

Saw Till #3: Finished the carcass

05-18-2021 01:26 PM by controlfreak | 5 comments »

I must say that I am enjoying doing my dovetails “pins first” now. They look a little dirty with the pencil lead but that will clean up with a smoother. The lead used to mark the tail lines is also on the sides off the pins. On a test fit the pencil marks leave smudges where they are too tight and make it easy to trim to fit. I used dovetails on the top and bottom and through tenons for the middle shelf , top of drawer box, just to play around with things. Main reason for the d...

Saw Till #2: Sides, bottom and drawer box done.

05-12-2021 05:55 PM by controlfreak | 0 comments »

The bottom was dovetailed to the sides. The shelf or top of drawer box was done with three through tenons mostly because I wanted to try doing them. It worked out okay but they were not as tight as I would have liked. I guess it was because I used a knife wall when marking but that is not the same as “leaving the line”. I think next time I will try to under cut the tenon a bit or come back with a square and move the line in a bit.I still need to dovetail the top on to the sides. I...

Saw Till #1: Panel glue up and dovetail side panels to bottom

05-04-2021 04:30 PM by controlfreak | 1 comment »

So I decided to make a saw till to gather up saws that live in random places around my shop. This is an ongoing shop organizing and skill building endeavor. Lots of thought has gone into the size and joinery and I have a rough sketch but it is mostly without dimensions so I am pretty much letting form be my guide. It will have one wide drawer or two narrower drawers on the bottom for saw files and blade replacements. Larger saws one one side smaller back saws on the other and maybe room to h...

Small Projects #43: Kitchen drawer & front replacement

04-11-2021 11:30 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Fall 2019 I replaced the old, black slab, kitchen doors with nicer farmhouse doors with bead board inserts. Before. Then Jan 2020 had a MI and then C19 hit and the drawers got put on hold. SWMBO wanted “farmhouse”. Just now (Apr 2021) trying to update the drawers. They’re black slabs with cheap white plastic pulls and the fronts are inseparably attached to the cheap 1/2” plastic coated MDF boxes. Old “bottom dollar” non-wood, stapled draw...

Great find in ATL

04-08-2021 11:35 PM by bladedust | 0 comments »

If anyone in the Atlanta area needs some lumber, I found this post on Craigslist. Sorry, but it looks like it’s been claimed pretty quick. I hope it was a LumberJock that claimed it.

Recycle a few scraps #1: Getting to a glue up...

03-20-2021 11:55 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

One of the chores in the last few projects, is ripping a panel, or just a plank, to get to a certain width. usually results in a strip of scrap…..that for some reason or other, I just can’t throw out. After a while, there is a pile of the strips of scraps…too small to do much more than a few cauls….which get tossed away once the clamps are done with them… So…some thinking was done, dangerous I know…about gluing up a panel of those scraps…t...

Moravian workbench build #12: Tool tray

02-28-2021 11:55 AM by controlfreak | 6 comments »

Other than some minor tweaks the tool tray came together yesterday. It was drying (glue) so it is still the only feature of the bench that is still unused but will be a welcome addition. I used 3/4” pine for the bottom and sides. I edge jointed two pieces to make the bottom. Used some ripped 2×4’s for cauls after adding a minor taper or crown. The glue up was dead flat so it was the right call.I was finally able to put my Stanley 45 into service to plough the 1/4” groov...
