Dealing with a blank wall #5: Beads and Grooves..

02-14-2021 01:49 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

ran the parts through the saw…to thin them down to 3/4” thick….means a thin push stick was needed.. Nothing fancy…but it keep my fingers away from that spinning blade…After letting these sit a day, came back and sorted through the mess.. Think I found two nice long ones, to cut into rails… And 4 that should be good enough for the stiles….they did need trimmed a bit, and to where they matched each other….one way would be.. gang them u...

Dealing with a blank wall #2: Dados!

02-08-2021 02:57 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Seems to be the way to put parts together? Could have done the Dados with the latest Stanley 45…..waiting on cutters for it, though. Tried and true way? Lay out where they are to go… Then, set the blade height on the tablesaw. Check the mitre gauge that it is square to the blade….and then make a bunch of cuts ( my tablesaw can’t use dado blade sets) trying to leave the lines.. Was about here, I found out mitre gauge was 1 degree out of square…fix...

Small Projects #37: First Fast-Joint Mini - jig storage box.

02-07-2021 04:04 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

I got the Fast-Joint Mini jig (review HERE ) in and working the other day and thought what better first project than a storage box for all of the jigs bits and bobs? The complete, assembled jig consists of the following: Lots of oddly shaped bits. By stacking I was able to reduce the interior space required down to 8-1/4” L x 4-5/8” W x 4-1/8” H. With the sides 1/2” thick and the ends 3/4” the outside dimensions for the sides is 9-3/4” and 5-5/8”...

Making a little bench for a mountain house in CO. Simple…just a 2 in. plank of blue stain pine over carbon steel legs. Legs are bar stock – 2.0 in. wide x 1/4 thick. I’ll attach via two lag screws dipped in wood glue. Sanded via hand. 80/120/150. Applied two coats Watco Danish Oil (Natural) about 2h apart.24h after 2nd coat:48h after 2nd coat. I’ll apply Watco Wipe-On Oil-based poly next.

Box for a Combo Plane #6: Lid installed, and a PIP ?

02-03-2021 11:45 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, first…those two packages… has the Long Rods… Still not quite as long as the later models, but these are almost double the length I had. Yes, they do thread into the main stock’s body….later models, the rods just slid on through. The other package? Contained the Main Body Depth Stop…..I can live with the threaded version just fine….the OEM Non-threaded ones are a bit hard to fine….and $$$ to get….These two packages gave me...

My Woodworking Journey #4: My First Table From Two Years Ago

02-03-2021 01:49 PM by Gerald Etto | 2 comments »

Throwback to September 2018, when I made my first table after enrolling in Steve Ramsey’s The Weekend Woodworker course. There are 101 flaws with this table, but I remember feeling good at the moment. I made something, instead of consuming something. That meant a lot. I have since recycled this table into a cyclone dust collector cart, but I did use it for over a year. My daughter did her artwork on it when she was 7 and got paint all over it. I cherish those memories and perh...

Box for a Combo Plane #5: Build a lid

02-02-2021 05:09 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

got tired of waiting around on a mail delivery that wasn’t going to happen, today….apparently 4” of snow is too deep? Sunday night, got bored sitting around…decided to try out an idea. Arrange a few saw cuts just so….that the holes from those grooves and rebates don’t show…and there be a bunch to hide.. Plane was….start with a miter cut… For one “finger”width….next a few other cuts were laid out.. But, not ...

Milling Lumber from Arizona Residental Trees #1: Afghan Pine or Aleppo Pine thoughts on milling and use.

02-01-2021 10:30 AM by azwoodworker | 0 comments »

Hi, was doing some research on the slabs and boards on the trees I have been milling over the last few years and came across a post on Aleppo or Afghan pine that I remember seeing when I milled my first Afghan Pine but did not have much to add. Not much else was added since so I thought I’d give some conclusions after drying and building with it. I know Aleppo Pine and Afghan Pine are different, but many people use the names interchangeably. I’ve milled and dried Afghan pine over the last 4 y...

Box for a Combo Plane #4: Joinery stuff

02-01-2021 12:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Mainly getting ready for some….Box came out of the clamps, today….had to whack a couple cauls, to get them to let go…not a biggie… Had to sand and plane the corners, anyway. Fill in any gaps ( there’s always some..)and then try to get the top edge straight and leveled… Then tried the plane IN the box.. So I could cut and fit a “pad” for the plane to rest on….and not rattle around in there…had one other task before I could ...
