July, Frame & Panel Box Project #8: Lid attached, started on a finish (no stain, this time..)

07-18-2021 02:38 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok..Box first…front and back bottom rails sit lower then the ends do…one is really low down…got out 2 routers.. The Craftsman has a round-over bit…the DeWalt #610 has a edge trimmer…because the bit has a 1/2” shank. Between the two… Was able to match the ends to the front and back bottom rails…next, needed to round that lid a bit.. Along the ends… and.. Along the front and back of the lid’s top edges..and any spots I m...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #7: Bottom installed, lid into the clamps

07-13-2021 05:51 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok..Removed the clamps holding the slips in place….grab a piece of 1/4” plywood ( 5mm? Luann?) make 2 marks…one for length, one for width…then connect the 2 with a framer’s square…then over to the bandsaw.. Not only follow the straight lines….I was even splitting them!...then a test fit into the box… Oooooh, we got lucky…Pop this back out, bead of glue brushed around on the slips…and set the panel down into the glue…but, ...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #6: Clamps removed, panel cleaned up, slips installed

07-11-2021 02:15 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Was a wee bit busy, yesterday…Filled up with some “cheap” gas ( $2.92/gal.!) then walked through a Community Garage Sale event….didn’t buy a thing…came back home for Lunch…...then head for the shop..for a couple hours (2) First off, clamps needed to be removed…slowly. listening for any creaks, groans, and cracking sounds, NOT coming from me…had to flip the box over, to get to the last few clamps… Then back up onto it̵...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #5: 2nd End glued up...

07-10-2021 04:08 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And then cleaned up and….and….another glue up? Remember this thing? Gaps have been addressed…Panel does fit a bit better ( saw blade width too long, was causing that gap)...Decided to try me luck gluing it all together… One c clamp was thrown away…chased a couple parts across the bench…one even “escaped” to the floor….like it or not, this WAS getting glued up! Let this thing sit overnight…... Next day…clamps came o...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #4: Got one end done..

07-09-2021 07:34 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And trying to get #1: End done…. There is a dry fit to fine tune. Had to mill tenons on the ends of the rails. Make sure the panel would fit. Shows where the tenons will be….then spread some glue, and chase some parts.. It was getting glued up, whether it liked it, or not…..like trying to herd cats… Meanwhile… #2 End: Dry fit wasn’t quite right…panel was the hold up…was too fat, a hair too wide in the beam, and a hair too lon...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #3: Out of the clamps, 2 sides get together

07-08-2021 03:23 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Trying to match the 2 up… With side #1 having “issues” was a hair LONGER than Side #2, and one leg was sticking it’s foot out…Tablesaw to correct both ends, rather than all from one end…Clamped the two sides together…. Ok…Not sure if it is #1 or #2….need to fix that edge….beltsander AND a plane.. getting close….had to work on both ends, BTW. Finally got that chore done….removed ONE clamp, carefully rotated t...

July, Frame & Panel Box Project #2: trying for one glue-up

07-06-2021 10:01 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Need to mill a few tenons…so the rails will fit into the stiles….and match the length of the panel.. Set this to the thickness of the panels, to help size the tenons..Wanted a snug, but not too snug fit… Close.. Tried a dry fit….fine tuned a couple spots…then the glue up could commence ( herding of cats, comes to mind..) Creaks a bit, but no “CRACKS”...must be a good sign? Let this sit a day…repeat for Side #2 Fitting the panel t...

Spalted Beech Plough Plane

06-26-2021 05:33 PM by MikeB_UK | 11 comments »

Screw stem plough plane made out of beech & spalted beech More of a step-by-step ramble than a blog but here we go. Lay out the shape for the main body and cut to rough size. Drill a couple of holes as the starter for the handle. Chisel out the bed for the irons & test fit. Flatten the board, testing out the £6 Aldi plane, works surprisingly well as a smoother, tight mouth, needed some reshaping of the handles but a lot better than I expected. Cut the rebate for the ...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #7: Lid re-worked, hinges installed...maybe a PIP

06-19-2021 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, first things first…clamps came off of the box…decided the top edges needed to all match each other, so the lid will indeed sit flat when I close it…we have ways.. Since this Millers Falls No.9 was sitting out on the bench….might as well use it. 2 corners were a bit higher than the other two….not any more…..same with the slips, and the bottom edges of the box…. Same plane….keep checking until things will sit flat….like the lid...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #6: Slips are showing, round-overs done

06-16-2021 07:42 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

So…started up the mitersaw…and cut four slips for length. Each gets a bead of glue, and a couple clamps….started on the longer sides, attempting to pull the bowed in side back out to straight…then work my way around from there… Some joints were better.. But, always seems to be That One… Oh well…going to be covered with a plywood floor above, and a brass foot below. Set this aside for a day..Removed the 3 main clamps from the lid blank.. ...
