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...

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...

Small Projects #42: Indoor Car Stereo

03-14-2021 03:22 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

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 … 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 to be a light contrast...

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...

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...

03-08-2021 03:09 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

This was an Easter gift for a nice little old Italian widow I know. It came out so well I had to make another one for SWMBO. Then another for a neighbor and another … six so far! Rosewood and zebrawood The “standard” proportions are that the cross bar is half the height, centered 1/4 of the way down. The material was ripped to 1-1/2”, resawn on the TS to 3/4” thick and then cut to length, 15” and 7-1/2”. This used over 22-3/4” of a 24&#...

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 ...

Had a series of tasks to do….remove the clamps from the doors…drill 2 holes for the two knobs… Glue and clamp into place…and let sit a while. In order to install these mounting brackets… I had a problem, again… Bracket at the bottom was easy enough to do…pilot holes, even. Towel rod was a bit in the way, mehBut to do the top bracket…inside the case, underneath the top of the case… The drill will not fit here. So, while t...
