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...

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...

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 ...

Acorn No 4 - refurb #2: No 4 Acorn - Chapman Tools by Stanley- restore

08-15-2021 09:48 PM by Brodan | 0 comments »

Following the refurb of the original Chapman No4 made by Chapman Ltd in Sheffield England, I finally had some time to clean up, and derust the No 4 Chapman Acorn build by Stanley. Since Stanley’s purchased the Chapman facility in 1936 and built this plane as a lower tier item until sometime in the 70s I have no idea of its age. The iron is stamped Acorn Made in England. After removing the rust I flattened the back and stoned, lapped and stropped the the 35° to a razor edge. The body st...

Hybrid Shop….I use what will get a task done….doesn’t always involve hand tools, nor always power tools…usually a blend of the two..so…when building these drawers, I have been using both a router table and hand chopped ways.. Thursday was about a 3 hour tour…to get ONE drawer into the clamps…and another to get it’s handle installed.. Drawer #3 would like a handle, please. Laid out the locations for the 2 bolts ( in pencil) and then drill...

Needed to sharpen a few items, too….spurs on the Stanley 45 were bad...This one needed sharpened up….the other one? Only reached to be flush with the edge of the skate….replaced it with a spare from the Stanley 45’s case…and sharpened one of the un-sharpened lobes….NOW the plane can score 2 lines across, so I can plough a dado, or two.. One other item needing work…I have a WR #62…was getting DULL, area under the blade had filled up with &#...
