A Shaker Table, 2022 version #1: Start up

04-07-2022 05:43 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Still had 4 planks of Ash….7/8” x 5-1/2” x 6’5” There is a plant stand in the front window of the house…cats seem to think it is a great place to make U-turns during “Kitty Hour”, and always seem to knock it over, plants and all. Stand is just a cheap pile of sticks, anyway, sooooo Plan is to use just these 4 planks, make a table to sit in the window…and place planters on..something even the fat cat can’t tip over… ...

A Stand for a Drill Press #6: Drawers need bottoms...

03-29-2022 07:28 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Went down to Lowes the other day…picked up a 1/2” x 24” x 48” plywood panel…. Problems came when it was time to cut it into bottoms for the drawers.. Not a whole lot of room in the shop…needed to pull the tablesaw out a bit… Until the 4’ long panel just cleared the saw blade…and still give me enough room for my fat body to push the panel through.. Rip fence was set to rip a 10” wide strip off of the panel…..fence ne...

A Stand for a Drill Press #5: Backs and runners...

03-28-2022 09:39 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Hauled another plank to the shop…needed to mill 5 backs, for 5 drawers…and see about 10 runners….Plank had a few issues, wavy edges…placed the less wavy against the rip fence…then flip over and reset the fence to about 4” or so..and run through, with the first edge against the fence…mainly to get the 2 edges parallel to each other….so I can crosscut for length….of about 12” or so….figured I can finish the sizes to what I needed...

A Stand for a Drill Press #3: Midnight follies

03-08-2022 04:44 PM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Was just sitting around, nothing worth watching…decided to try one or two assemblies….maybe just the ends? Located a supply of screws…laid out a few c clamps…drill some counter-sunk holes…and see how bad this will be, to put together….can’t be any worse than the “Flat-Pack” stuff? By the time I was down in the shop, and ready to start…it was already past Midnight….had to stop, somewhere..Countersink bit is an adjustable #12...

A Stand for a Drill Press #2: We have a plan?

03-08-2022 03:34 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

All in me head, in seems. Letting the lumber guide a few things. First off….those rounded corners they put on a 2×4? They will have to go..tablesaw’s rip fence was set up to peel one edge free of roundedness..reset to peel the other edge square… And, since all the pine parts were already cut to length..made things a bit easier to do…than pushing through an 8’ long board…must have got things square enough..as I could stack some of the legs.. ...

A Stand for a Drill Press #1: Start up, back story

03-08-2022 03:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Where the drill press used to sit…was way too crowded to do much work with it..With a grinder to it’s front, and a sanding center beside it…..plus, when the tool cabinet door swings open….it hits the drill press…not the best set-up..so Last fall, Landlord had a roofing crew put a new roof on my house…there was a sheet of 3/4” plywood in the backyard from my old Queen sized bed..which they could use for any patches in the roof….there was also ...

Scrap Bin Refugees #1: start of 2 boxes

02-28-2022 04:56 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Scrap bin was filling up, again….time to thin the herd. Went through several stacks, and piles…all around the shop. Found these 5 that might be of some use..as is.. Found a square ( almost) block that can be resawn.. There was a lot of bits and pieces…some had splits, some with big knots, some that were just plain junk…others were way to short or thin…narrowed things down to.. I figured IF I could resaw these down to around 1/2” thick….I...

Modern Woodworking Project #6: Modern Bar Stools

02-18-2022 06:59 PM by TimberBiscuit | 2 comments »

I had a ton of fun building these barstools and learned a lot along the way. A big part of this build had to do with the order of operations. And, in the end, these barstools got a lot of manual love from hand sanding and shaping—the result of that decision made for a beautifully hand-crafted look. I haven’t decided if this is the approach I would take in the future, but it works well with this design. I plan to build two additional complimentary bar stools in the near future (so stay t...
