Kitchen Island Project #12: Build a shelf, add a top..

06-21-2020 02:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

And, maybe a PIP? Page 4 of The Plan:Had to cut the 3/4” x 2’ x 4’ plywood panel down to size…even have a nice bit for “leftovers”.. Had to allow for the Ash edge pieces along 3 sides…and notch for the legs… And cut the Ash parts to length….then a bead of glue, and a few clamps.. Let this sit overnight….clamps then could be removed…and a cleat made.. Notches to fit around the legs… Other end will be atta...

Kitchen Island Project #10: A door and a start on a drawer

06-18-2020 02:43 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Had the blank for the door…needed it sized to fit the opening…ends squared, both faces flattened, and a rebate done… So the edge wraps around the divider. Will get a set of better hinges today, maybe. Went out and bought a bit of lumber, the other day….a 1×6 x 8’ Pine board ( sorted through 1/2 the rack to find a good one) a 1/4” x 2’ x 4’ Luann panel for a drawer bottom. The Middle shelf gets a 3/4” x 2’ x 4’ pin...

Kitchen Island Project #9: Monday?

06-16-2020 05:12 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Sunday was too busy elsewhere, to go to the shop…and, even though the shop is closed on Mondays…had to get things moving….Had three panels, sitting around all clamped up, and doing nothing but taking up floor space..so… Largest of the 3 was still sitting on my tablesaw…removed to clamps, trimmed the ends square, width was a hair too wide. Surfaced the better looking of the 2 faces flat, and as smooth as I could get it. Then a bit of glue, and some clamps.....

Kitchen Island Project #6: Curves and things

06-12-2020 02:41 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Letting the new lumber sit a few days….that divider panel is out of the clamps. Ends squared up, one edge trimmed for width..both faces flattened and smooth…set aside for a bit. Long aprons needed a curve to them… Laid it out, just 3 nails and a scrap of bendy Ash. Bandsaw to try to cut to the line….got close, laid out the second one, and cut it. Blade is getting dull…..so, clamp the 2 aprons together in the vise, and give a spokeshave a try Trying...

Building Closet Doors, Appliques, HVLP Spraying, Installing...

06-07-2020 02:40 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 2 comments »

There’s a lot of work packed into this 21 minute video I just published. This was a custom closet door project and I’m showing the process starting at the lumber yard to the end where you see the customer reaction. It’s almost the perfect length of video to make a 30 minute TV show… if HGTV would be interested in some craftsmanship. Here’s what’s covered if you’re interested in a part or all of it:- selecting lumber in the lumber yard- rail and s...

Kitchen Island Project #3: 1st panel trimmed up, and a cut list

06-06-2020 04:19 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Managed to draw up a cut list, of sorts… Ink was barely dry…when I had to make a change. Glad Fred Flintstone didn’t carve the list in stone…list is more of a guide….Case in point. After the 1st panel had been squared up….the size did a few changes…Per the list: 3/4” x 23-1/2” x 39” As glued up: 3/4” x 24” x 40” As trimmed square: 3/4” x 21-5/8” x 38-5/8” Because of a new, roll-around...

Block Plane Box, version 2 #2: A sliding lid

05-28-2020 04:09 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

So, on to the other end of this box…. Needed to know where the groove for the lid will be, height-wise….so I could cut the end to size… Only needed dovetails to go this far up. Just to the bottom of the groove. first corner came out great..but “Concentration..slip away..” Notice where the groove is….and how the pins go? WRONG WAY…Not only did the dummy mark things out wrong, he went and cut them wrong, too….only to discover when c...

Block plane box #4: Box #2, lid completed

05-21-2020 08:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Not working as fast or as long as I used to…but…had the parts all cross cut to size…time to start making box joints Used this 1/4” chisel, to lay out the fingers….then a bandsaw to make a lot of cuts…seems to help when I chop the waste out…. Got these two corners done…then the Boss needed to go to the store…came back and tried the last two corners… When I laid out the fingers for the #3 corner….somehow the part got fli...

Block plane box #3: Box #2

05-20-2020 03:21 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Not moving too well….the face plant on my sidewalk ( sober, BTW) seems to have messed a few parts I need to move..in order to build a box or two..Fingers on the box were a bit wider, than before….less chopping required. Managed to get the 4 sides to where I could glue them up…and add the bottom to the box…. May have had too many clamps..as the sides bowed in a bit… Got the box all sanded square and smooth…and did a test fit…to see which plane ...
