A Resaw Adventure #2: Rotate

09-14-2021 11:53 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

To complete the cut…left the plywood spacer in place….what was the top is now the bottom. Start here….the saw is about..100+ years old….Disston No. D8…where the “8” is inside of the “D”...5-1/2 ppi, 28” long…big saw… Once it gets going, a spray of sawdust shoots out, all over the place. At about the 3 minute mark.. A nice steady…not too fast, not too slow ….had to stop for a bit, switched the hands a...

Another Hand Plane Rehab #4: Some Hardware Stuff

09-13-2021 01:26 PM by HokieKen | 20 comments »

Man, it’s been a while! I’ve had so little shop time lately and none of it has been unspoken for, so rehabbing this plane hasn’t been on the agenda. But, I had a couple of hours yesterday and I started to clean and straighten the shop up. The bench grinder that I use for wire brushing and buffing was sitting out and I was about to put it up. Then the little cup that was holding all the hardware for this plane caught my eye… So I figured it made sense to do a little...

A Resaw Adventure #1: A back story

09-13-2021 12:45 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Getting bored, just sitting around, resting up a messed up knee….one experiment today, was to try the steps down to the Dungeon Wood Shop…and see how I manage….just me, not carrying anything in my hands…camera went along, sitting in my pants pocket….at least until I arrived in the shop…..had to brush a few cob webs away….spiders were trying a take-over? Moved a few things off of the tablesaw….there is a 1×6 plank I want to try to resaw&#...

Getting serious about dovetails #2: Second attempt

09-11-2021 04:08 PM by controlfreak | 2 comments »

Well I made all the boards the same thickness and proceeded with layout. I was determined to identify the faces and letter the joining pieces to avoid making any mistakes. I woke up at 3:00 AM and after laying awake for an hour decided to hit the shop at 4:00 AM. There is a positive to having a shop in an outbuilding separate from the house. Started marking the pin board and ended up with the tail board being face in, argh. Because I am into using knife walls (channeling Paul Sellers) I had...

Laundry hamper #7: Slats, length and thickness

09-02-2021 06:02 PM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

After yesterday’s fiasco with the frames for the doors I decided to go back to working on the slats today. First, I marked them all for length and cut them appropriately. 12⅛ inches for the short walnut slats, and 18⅛ inches for the longer oak slats. Then after inspecting see which side would be the show side, I marked a line across the end 1/4” from the non-show side, then pared off the corner with a knife. Then I set the slat down and planed the corner off. And c...

Laundry hamper #5: Slats, part 2

08-31-2021 05:26 PM by Dave Polaschek | 11 comments »

Today was another short day. I had to dig out a chamisa root before I got started in the shop so I got a late start and was already tired. But I cut a dozen more walnut slats (only 10 survived, due to an internal check in the wood) and a half dozen more oak slats. That should be enough for both doors, and maybe enough to put slats in the bottom of the cabinet, if I decide to do that. Prepping wood with mostly hand tools, I tend to make spares…. Anyway, after ripping them on the bandsaw, it...

Laundry hamper #3: Slats and frame pieces for another door

08-28-2021 07:28 PM by Dave Polaschek | 3 comments »

No pictures today, but I made pretty good progress. First up, I used the bandsaw to cut the ash pieces for the frame of the second door. My chunk of 4/4 ash board had a knot in it, which I craftily placed near the 15” mark on the shorter (side) pieces, and if I cut the miter the right direction (or rather, if I put the grooves in the stick the right way), the knot will be in the waste. With those cut, I put in the bead first, then beveled the inner edge, since I had those planes set up and...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #16: Lid attached, other hardware, and a PIP?

08-21-2021 07:42 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok…getting caught up…Thursday was a wasted day….Friday was errands and yard sales…this morning? Before setting out on the road…got a few things done.. The sides meet the lid with a bevel…router bit got close…needed the WR #62 to adjust the bevel to meet up with the lid…once THAT was done…then the Piano hinge was surfaced mounted ..And..the lid opens nicely! Then the entire outside, other than the plywood back, was given a coat of st...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #15: Plan B? Maybe...

08-19-2021 05:05 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Chapter should be titled “The Lid” Not much of anything went right….the plan to use a router to mill a tongue around all 4 edges of the panel? Looked good on paper…but only IF the panel is square to begin with…the 4 skirt boards? How. after squaring up the panel and needing the long skirt to fit the new size…and NOT cut them…do they turn out to be 1/2” too short? To the point I had to go back and make two new long skirt boards from scr...

A Project for August, Tool Chest #14: The Sunday Funnies?

08-16-2021 04:33 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I had a couple tasks to get done today…one..Haul a plank to the shop, so I can cut it into 3 pieces to make the panel for the lid…standing in at 3/4” x 5-3/4” x 6’4”...it seemed go out of it’s way to bump into, catch on, and otherwise bang into everything on the way…. can’t use the bench and a handsaw for the cutting, this time around…had to try with the tablesaw….wanted 3 pieces about 24-3/4” long…trying to cut ...
