03-11-2021 04:26 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Floor of the compartment sits in a rebate in front of the box..set up the Stanley 45 for that job… Took longer to set up, than to actually do this….next…reset the 45 again.As the other 3 sides need a groove to match….longer rods, to reach over into the middle….use the just ploughed rebate to set the distance… Set the jig up.Plough a 1/4” wide groove… The router plane is there, to level the bottom of the groove. had issues with the two...

A Project for March #5: Dovetail time

03-10-2021 05:57 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

First, I needed to lay out all the parts as to what goes where…. 2 sides, a back, a front and a drawer front….was trying to wrap the grain around all four sides, and even the front of the drawer…right side? Close? Left Side? A bit better….Single Brain Cell Sketch Up Plane decided there will be through dovetails on the corners, needed to get the toys out for that sort of thing.. Things to do layouts with, a saw, and a mallet to drive a few chisels… ...

Milling Lumber from Arizona Residental Trees #2: Started on my 50 log project. Not the best production but still some good boards.

03-09-2021 09:56 AM by azwoodworker | 0 comments »

After three days of starting the milling of the 50 logs this week got some good boards but pretty low production. Switched off the ladder system to using plates at the end of the logs and 2 1/2 1/8 inch square tube for the first cut. I then do a second cut to make a partial cant. I produced about 12 11 inch average 1 in ruff boards of chinse elm and 5 boards of Indian Rosewood. Nice colors on the Indian Rosewood. Had to do clean up trim out a large root ball for later use. I go...

A Project for March #4: Last sides done, things trimmed for size

03-08-2021 08:58 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

These two.. Are out of the clamps… Handsome, ain’t they? Checked to see IF they match up to each other… of course, they don’t….we have ways… Place them in the vise together, Millers Falls No. 11 Junior Jack to plane until they DO match….so, how do the match up with the back panel? As usual….Mark a line, joint down to that line, check with a straight edge.. Ok…need to trim the back and sides…and for square.. Firs...

A Project for March #3: Sides are done..

03-07-2021 04:32 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Even found enough for a single drawer front. Got the sides glued up… Side #1 and.. Side #2….while these waited on the glue to get dried…Lid was cleaned up.. From this mess to… Same face. Same with the panel for the back of the box… Was even able to use a smooth plane on it… Just waiting on the glue to cure, on these 2 sides.. While looking through the rest of the stock, to find a piece for above the drawer front(s)... I found the...

A Project for March #2: Panel building, 2 done, 2 to go

Well, that stack of 1 xs..got sorted out…worst of the batch went into the scrap can….the better looking ones were all trimmed to the same length… Then a bit of jointer work, to get the edges ready for glue… Set this aside for a few days….selected 2 more boards… Longest 2 I could find. I did a little work on them, to get them ready for a glue up…edges jointed.. Kept checking for any gaps. Finally.. This will become the back panel of ...

A Project for March #1: Back story, and a start up.

03-06-2021 02:09 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Had a stack of “Leftovers” from the last project….mainly Ash.. Thought about resawing all this down….keeping the better parts at 1/2” thick….but.. Not going to be easy… Figured I could set the rip fence to 2-1/2”.. And avoid the worst of the defects… (Firewood) The 1×2s ? Hmmm, may take some careful cutting….Reset the tablesaw….Zero Clearance Overly, fence 1/2” away from the blade…..blade a...

Moravian workbench build #13: The Finish

03-04-2021 03:21 PM by controlfreak | 9 comments »

I started the week with the plan to use natural tint Danish Oil but found that the national supply had been depleted. After seeking input here I decided to fall back to my original plan of using BLO. I am pleased with the end result and like the color.Sorry for the sideways but I had my phone turned to make it fit. I had been worrying about the leg vise. It had an enormous amount of chatter and felt generally bad on travel. The parallel guide was not entirely effective either but I wasn’...

Moravian workbench build #12: Tool tray

02-28-2021 11:55 AM by controlfreak | 6 comments »

Other than some minor tweaks the tool tray came together yesterday. It was drying (glue) so it is still the only feature of the bench that is still unused but will be a welcome addition. I used 3/4” pine for the bottom and sides. I edge jointed two pieces to make the bottom. Used some ripped 2×4’s for cauls after adding a minor taper or crown. The glue up was dead flat so it was the right call.I was finally able to put my Stanley 45 into service to plough the 1/4” groov...
