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

A Project for March #9: Almost done

03-16-2021 01:47 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Set up a sander, to remove burn marks, and overlong dovetails… Made sure this table was square to the platten,,,, Burn marks on the lid are gone. Clamps on the drawer are too. Sanded the corners smooth, all four of them, and tried a dry fit into the case… Didn’t want to shove it all the way in…in case it gets stuck….there was an issue, though….bottom of the drawer was a bit too long…needed trimmed down a bit…we have ways.. Juni...

Have had this idea about building a home stereo (glorified AM/FM) out of a “one DIN” car stereo. Saw someone make a beautiful zebrawood case for an old Marantz receiver and got the bug to make a wooden stereo of my own. Continue reading for build details … 2nd set for SWMBO I’ve got a beautiful piece of wenge that I’m going to use for the front and top. The plan was to use cherry for the ends but things change. The wenge is very dark and the cherry was t...

A Project for March #8: Build a drawer

03-14-2021 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Laundry Detail this afternoon…meant about 3 hours in the shop, while the Laundry got done… Last glue up was removed from the clamps… Not too bad? Means I can better size the parts to the drawer. Front needed a trim on the ends, and a swipe or two along an edge….same with the 2 sides. Already had one corner dovetailed… So, now I needed to get the other end dovetailed…Same as before..Lay out the pins, first.. Saw the lines… Cut a k...
