A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #6: Working on that top,part 2

05-03-2022 01:02 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok…Top is back out of the clamps…needs the glue joints cleaned and leveled up.. Areas with the big dried glue lines got sanded down….other high spot got the No. 6c treatment…on both faces. Once the underside was reasonably flat and smooth….added a little something extra…. Seems I do have a Branding iron, to mark my Projects with….takes a while to heat the BIG brass up… Comes in it’s own fancy box, too.. Once that is done, an...

A Shaker Style Table, 2022 version #5: Working on that top

05-02-2022 02:32 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

When last seen, it was just 4 planks glued up.. Time has come to clean it up…and trim it down to size… Between a coarse belt on the sander, and this Stanley No. 6c….goal was to clean off the dried glue lines, and level a few ridges…Then trim one end square.. If I can’t take this to the tablesaw….a vintage saw and the rip fence can be used, instead…..next, the other end Had a blank for the bread board ends…was too short, but will help...

A Shaker Table, 2022 version #7: Time to glue things up

04-13-2022 03:43 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

The pine corners got glue and screws… A mallet to assist the assembly, and a pair of BIG clamps…let that sit a day… Top came out of the caul & clamps…needed a trim on the ends… The guide is the same one I use on the tablesaw and router table…about 20 years old, now…Circular saw to make a cut on the ends….18v by Ridgid… Then reset the guid...

A Shaker Table, 2022 version #4: Back to using planes, again

04-09-2022 01:39 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Since I am done with the tablesaw, for now. Removed the bigger clamps from the table top panel.. And set this thing over on the tablesaw, for now….can use it for a “Staging area”.. And it is amazing how fast a flat area in a shop can get filled up…the other face of the panel? Meh…make this the under side of the top. Needed the bench cleared…as the leg blanks need their faces (4 each) planed smooth.. Tapers with a Jack plane I am pushing ...

Small Projects #59: Arduino Clock with Temp/Humidity

04-02-2022 11:34 PM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

This is another in a continuing series of weather stations. This one was built around Arduino CPU core and a scrolling red LED display. The entire unit was built with a Lexan front and rear panel and wrapped with walnut and black limba. It does other things too. It does AM/PM or 24 Hr, F or C temp, It chimes on the hour (hours can be set). It has an alarm clock with everything backed up so it doesn’t lose any setting after a power blip,. It has a “coffee pot” relay that c...
