Box from Ash scraps #1: Start up

03-20-2019 07:03 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, a little background on this one….just before all those trips to the Hospital happened…I had a bunch of leftovers from the Desk project….even had the better looking pieces all resawn down to 3/8” stuff….then, once I was allowed to work IN the shop, Chester Drawers Project started up…. So…now I have the time to putter around with the Ash boards.. Picked out 4 that almost matched each other…jointed the ends, trimmed a couple for length&#...

Arts and Crafts Dresser #9: Slow Drawer Dance

03-17-2019 12:53 AM by BlueRidgeDog | 3 comments »

I wanted to finish the drawers this week, but life (and my back) had other plans. Three to go, but no rush. The first nine are done, fitted and the insides are scraped and sanded. I used a trick to fit them a bit easier that I will share. The issue is if you have a half a degree of out of square in the carcass, and make a perfectly square drawer, you have a bit more hand work to fit it (or if you think your drawer is perfectly square and it is off a small amount). To accelerate thi...

Shop stuff #152: A Telecoustic with problems

03-16-2019 06:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

It’s not a Telecaster. It’s not an acoustic. It’s some weird hybrid that doesn’t really fill the shoes of either. Regardless, someone likes it but not the way it plays, and no wonder. With a neck shaped like a banana and really high action that make it hard to play it needs some attention and TLC. A big adjustment on the truss rod and shaving down the saddle seemed to do the trick nicely. Naturally, I give it some cleaning and maintenance in the process like I al...

Morris style glider #18: Done!

Finally finished! My wife helped make the cushions, which really add to the comfort! Wasn’t the best chair to sit in without them. I have been enjoying rocking in it and hope to for years to come. Feels so good to have it finally done after nearly 5 years…

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #11: A home for my Stanley 45 Irons

03-11-2019 11:56 AM by Bill Berklich | 0 comments »

When we last saw our hero… (oops wrong story). Well still no substantive progress on the tool cabinet – waylaid by surgery/recovery and weather. Unheated garage is not conducive to cutting/fitting/gluing/finishing at 10F. I do need to get busy soon ‘cuz the house is going up for sale in a couple more weeks and packing has already started. But that is a another story. I have managed a few smaller projects over the past month or so on warmer days and with the heater going...

Shop stuff #151: A Fender acoustic with nut issues.

03-09-2019 04:09 AM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

This guitar came to me and it was not nice to play. I went through the routine of setting it up and correcting the relief in the neck exposed why. Someone thought that to correct one problem they put another thing out of spec. Not a good idea. Setting it up properly and fixing the actual issues makes it nice to play now. View on YouTube

Lounge Chair #5: Upright Legs

03-05-2019 03:44 AM by Kaelin Quigley | 1 comment »

Cut from 8/4 cherry. Cut to a width of about I want to say four inches and about 22 inches long. With a flexible ruler, I traced the two curves. In the middle, it is almost straight for about 3 or so inches. I then took it to the bandsaw and later cleaned up the curves on an oscillating spindle sander. The first picture shows how the arm will look with a leg and the second is the two legs together. .

I’m really glad this step is now behind me.. I must admit… I was very apprehensive about it! But I’m sure glad I took my time with it because the joint is perfect. check out the process here..
