Chair woodworking plans #3: Work in progress day one

03-21-2021 02:41 AM by Tony Slattery | 0 comments »

Decided to use recycled timber so you may see the odd hole or patch here and there. Dry fit of the frame so far. The armrests are not fixed in place yet. Cutting the half lap joints for the backrest. Not as difficult as I thought it may be. Probably because I am a bit more relaxed about the fact that I am not potentially wasting any precious wood. Question What kind of gap filling glue to use for furniture making? I read somewhere in the dim and distant past that furnit...

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...

Shop stuff #206: The huge project is done.

03-19-2021 06:58 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After months of work we finally got the lower level of our new home ready. This project is for my wife and she will be running the show. We are both exhausted. The bookings are coming in. Most of them forest fire workers coming up for the season, which is cool, long term is nice security. Anyway, here is the 25 cent tour of the place as it is. There may be odds and ends added or adjusted over time. We shall see. https://youtu.be/OBv_Vrx8HyA

WIP: Outfeed Table #1: Build One to Throw It Away

03-19-2021 06:02 PM by mawilsonWCR | 3 comments »

In 40 years of writing code, I’ve applied the practice of “build one to throw it away” an extraordinary number of times. It works because you learn a great deal about the problem as you build that first version. If you do it right, the second version is much cleaner code. This week I applied the same principle to a Fusion 360 design. As I was attempting to create drawings for the outfeed table, I discovered a few things that really needed to be changed. Back in the desig...

Chair woodworking plans #2: Mission Chair Joint Detail

03-11-2021 04:52 AM by Tony Slattery | 1 comment »

This is the proposed joint between the stretchers and the legs. The legs are shown translucent so we can see inside. The screw is one of those socket heads popular with the builders around here. Shaft diameter is 6mm, and the pointy end seems to have some kind of ability to drill a hole for itself. The thread is also very sharp, and I imagine that is designed to cut through the timber. I have used this kind of screw for furniture repair and it has been very effective. I thought i...

A Project for March #5: Dovetail time

03-10-2021 05:57 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

First, I needed to lay out all the parts as to what goes where…. 2 sides, a back, a front and a drawer front….was trying to wrap the grain around all four sides, and even the front of the drawer…right side? Close? Left Side? A bit better….Single Brain Cell Sketch Up Plane decided there will be through dovetails on the corners, needed to get the toys out for that sort of thing.. Things to do layouts with, a saw, and a mallet to drive a few chisels… ...

Chair woodworking plans #1: Sketchup model of a mission chair

03-10-2021 06:20 AM by Tony Slattery | 3 comments »

This is a SketchUp model of an image and a sketch I found on the Gutenberg project. The image shown without the cushions. The sketch with dimensions. There is enough detail here to make this chair, if I had a fully equipped workshop it would be a lot easier. To make it with only hand tools is a bit more of a challenge. So I made the model using the dimensions shown in the sketch. You can have a look and download the models in 3DWarehouse. I am given to understand...

A Project for March #2: Panel building, 2 done, 2 to go

03-06-2021 11:59 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, that stack of 1 xs..got sorted out…worst of the batch went into the scrap can….the better looking ones were all trimmed to the same length… Then a bit of jointer work, to get the edges ready for glue… Set this aside for a few days….selected 2 more boards… Longest 2 I could find. I did a little work on them, to get them ready for a glue up…edges jointed.. Kept checking for any gaps. Finally.. This will become the back panel of ...

A Project for March #1: Back story, and a start up.

03-06-2021 02:09 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a stack of “Leftovers” from the last project….mainly Ash.. Thought about resawing all this down….keeping the better parts at 1/2” thick….but.. Not going to be easy… Figured I could set the rip fence to 2-1/2”.. And avoid the worst of the defects… (Firewood) The 1×2s ? Hmmm, may take some careful cutting….Reset the tablesaw….Zero Clearance Overly, fence 1/2” away from the blade…..blade a...

Dealing with a blank wall #6: A Mitered what?

02-14-2021 06:28 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

half lap joint…that also involves a mitered corner…Tools.. Lay out work… These 2 miter saws,,, But, that miter cut only goes down half way….then another saw takes over.. At least with the rails…some needed a chisel for clean up.. Once the 4 rails were done, time for the stiles to get halfed… On the non-beaded face…. Tablesaw this time around….I could creep upwards, until these matched the rails Then the mitre gauge on the...
