New desk for my computer #22: hutch done, finish is on, almost done

08-02-2019 03:42 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

except for hauling this thing out of the shop to where it will call “home”...Hutch came out of the clamps, sanded things down, added screws in the top… Just in case someone wants to pick up the desk by the top of the hutch….ran the round-over bit around a bit, and set the hutch on the desk… While I figure out how to get everything stained…everything that will show… Took a while, let this sit until the stain dried. Got to thinking..( dangero...

New desk for my computer #20: dado work...and some assembly

07-29-2019 02:29 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, for some dumb reason, I skipped lunch today…hauled a few items to the shop…set up that router…was a bit too deep….wanted it closer to 3/8”. Can’t do these dado on the bench, needed a way to hold things just long enough for one dado, slide the board a bit, and do the next….so.. Pine “pad” under the clamp. Gives me room to lay out and run the router…Layout. dado is narrower than the board using it. Also needed to know whe...

New desk for my computer #17: Last drawer, top worked on, stain...

07-23-2019 04:42 PM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

Ok, bought the last bit of plywood for the last drawer. Was looking to buy just a 2’x2’ square of 1/4” plywood….looked at the stuff Lowes had….more like a pinup picture, not a flat one in the lot. looked at the 5mm Luann 2’ x 4’ panels,,,,dollar more, but at least it was flat….got it home.. Shame to use this for a drawer bottom? used the bottom right corner…will save the rest for something that shows..Right hand drawer is out of t...

New desk for my computer #16: More drawers to do

07-22-2019 12:38 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Got the clamps off of Drawer #3 and #4, this morning while the shop was still cool…Had to clean the sides up a bit.. Jack plane to get it close….then.. A #3 sized smooth plane to smooth things out…worked on both drawers…had an issue as to what one goes where… Got that straightened out. All edges got sanded, then the fronts got a coat of stain, and their handles installed.. Will do, for now..( I marked the inside of each drawer, as to which went where...

New desk for my computer #15: Fit a drawer

07-20-2019 04:31 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, stained the fronts of 2 drawers. and a test fit of the handles… The way the desk was sitting, made it hard to fit drawers…so I slid it over here…drawers now fit…but. There was an issue with the raised panels intruding into the drawer’s space..can’t remove any of it, so..I planed the sides of the drawers down, until they fit…weapon of choice? Until I got too close to the screws at the back…then a beltsander finished up…Make a ...

New desk for my computer #14: Build a drawer

07-18-2019 05:05 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, most of the parts are ready? Well, the sides needed just a few more things done..Cleaned the dados, so the backs fit all the way in… Just happened to have the right width chisel, for that. Pilot holes for screws to attach the sides to the back.. Even the drill was “Vintage”....then flip the sides over, and do a countersink… Why change bits, just change drill and all…there is a bevel to the bottom corner.. Makes inserting a drawer into it’...

New desk for my computer #11: Top cleaned up, and installed

07-14-2019 01:10 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Sounds simple and easy enough to do? Remove the clamps from the glued up top….only sounds was from a couple of the cawls…creak. Laid the top onto the desk….and scraped away the dried glue….we have ways.. Stanley #70 scraper. Was made to remove painted on shipping labels, from wooden crates. Works great for dried glue, price tags, bar codes they print onto the wood…. Couple of clamps to keep things from walking away….between a beltsander, and a ...

Foot Stool #1: The Top

07-10-2019 08:34 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

Hi all, I have been asked by my wife to make her a small foot stool and I had some hardwood offcuts floating around so here it is.The off cuts were in the shape of a triangle so I used a gum leaf as a template to make a cut out design before joining the two pieces and carved in a section for some gum nuts which I will fill with epoxy.I just brought some Record carving tools so I thought I would it would be nice give the edges a bit of scolloping so I tried my hand at that, I like the look ...

New desk for my computer #9: Knee well unit build

07-09-2019 06:21 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

I did get a stash of parts milled up.. 2 front stiles, two rear stiles (one of Pine), 4 rails, and the pieces for the center divider….I also got an ugly 4/4×4 plank to the shop.. rough sawn, had a large knot. Needed this cut into a couple parts, 28” long, for now… They also need to be 2” wide…set the rip fence for 2-1/4” width…run both blanks through, reset the fence to 2”, more of less…and run each through, with the freshly...

New desk for my computer #8: A little assembly, another design change

07-07-2019 02:42 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Spent a little time in the shop….had kickers to get ready to install..Since the screws I had on hand were only 1” long, used a counter bore with a pilot hole. Then glue and screws.. Had also sanded the glue joints on the frames. kicker does not “guide” anything, merely keeps a drawer from tipping down, if you pull the drawer out a bit too far. I try to center them, and even check that they are straight with a square….but, location is by MK1 Eyeball. 4...
