Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #11: Drawer is done..PIP?

02-12-2022 05:40 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Clamps came off, today…nothing flew apart….always a good sign. There was an issue, with the back of the drawer.. 2 square holes, where the groove for the bottom panel is showing through….Although this IS the back of a drawer, decided to cut a couple Rosewood plugs to fit….and see how that fixes things.. What holes? Drawer front got a light pass or two from a smooth plane. Ends didn’t look too bad… Just gave them a sanding. sanded the top an...

Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #10: Drawerbuilder , part 2

02-11-2022 01:48 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok….the back needs to get attached to the sides of the drawer,next…thought I’d at least check how well the drawer will fit into the box…. Not sure I’d want to close this up any further…might not get it back out… Question here is….a single knob, or two knobs? For right now, though, I need the drawer sides…. Using through dovetails, as according to the Sellers plan…except, here I’ll go back to doing the Pins first̷...

Well, first a Plan was looked over, then Episode #4 was watched,,then some time in the shop..The Plan.. Was to start building the drawer for this little box…Sounds simple, enough….Noticed when Sellers get the front all dovetailed up…the Episode ended…Ok… So, headed to the shop, had drawer parts to size….figure out which will be the drawer’s Front, which will be the back. Marked the Front as to the “inside”. made sure it fit the ope...

Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #8: Lid installed

02-09-2022 02:56 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Most of that prep work the other day, was to get ready to install the lid onto this little box..I think I am up to Episode #4 of the Masterclasses series…so, here we go… I set the box onto the lid blank. trying to get the same overhang all the way round….length was a tad long…about a tablesaw blade and a half cut….Check the fit, again.. Mark a line all the way round, this is the line the rebate is to stop at. I had a rebate plane set up. Was unable...

Needed a plane set up… Set up the fence for width, and For depth. Tried to free up the bolt for the spur, was unable to….that is ok..we do have the Stanley?Wards No.78, IF I need to run the spur…May just go with a knife wall, anyway. Box lost it’s clamps, and was set aside, for now…need the bench space…those 2 hinges needed work.. Kind of too gappy….we have ways. Got out the Monarch metal vise ( better eat your Wheaties, first) and set...

02-07-2022 07:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, clamps came off slowly …listening for any strange noises. Half of them…no strange creaks, nor groans…other than the ones I was making….Clean up began… Ends first..had a few spots to fill… Then cleaned up the back….between a plane, and the sanders.. This is the back of the case…had some detail work round in front.. Leveled the joint…large plane..Got things cleaned up all around…so set the box onto the Base/Bottom.....

Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #5: Heading for a glue up

02-06-2022 03:20 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Need to get Corners #3 and #4 dovetailed, and cut the plywood panel to size, first.. Where I left off, the other day…. And what was actually sawn and chopped… Chop 1/2 way down on the outside face, THEN chop from the inside face. Coping saw to help clean things up..then use these pins to lay out the tails.. And, try a dry fit… And mark the plywood for length and width…As for Corner #4..I use #4 to help with the lay outs… Then saw, chop and clea...

After having to work on a Honey-do Project…and Supper settled….trudged to the shop. was to try and get 3 tasks done.. The “other” corner around in back needed it’s dovetails done….Then cut the plywood panel for length..then MAYBE start on corner #3 out in front….well, what was that song by the Late Meatloaf, about 2 out of 3…. So…at least I can do some of the work sitting down on the shop stool.. Like using the Dovetail saw to cut ...

Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #3: Started the dovetail connection

02-04-2022 05:52 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

And..even got one corner done! Started off with some layout, so rounded up the Usual Suspects.. But, in order to hide that groove…needed something extra done Something like this? Leaving a tab behind, that will fill and cover the groove…a bit rough to saw and chop.. This is the outside face. Doing Pins first, as I seem to be better at that way of doing this joint..You can try tails first IF you are so inclined… Not too hateful? I chop out all the waste. Tha...

Red Oak Leftovers, desktop organizer #2: Feeling groovy?

02-03-2022 08:50 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Or wanting a rebate? First thing, was to find a 1/4” plywood panel about the right size.. That had a good face…as the other face would only be seen by the drawer…My plan is to house this panel for the compartments floor in grooves on the back and 2 ends….and line them up to a 1/4” x 1/4” rebate along the front… This would be along the inside face, along the bottom edge…then layout the grooves to match.. Sides and back are labeled as t...
