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...

Small Projects #40: Easter Shrine

02-28-2021 03:31 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Friend of SWMBO is nice older lady who is quite devout. Thought this would make a nice gift for Easter. Bought a nice 9” tall statue of Jesus and wanted to put it in a fancy box suitable for table display. I just got the Fast-Joint Mini set up and dialed in. This was going to be a test of the jig. 9” H x 3” W x 2” D statuette with customized engraved plate. Easter colors are purple and yellow and it just so happens I just got some yellow heart and I inventory ...

Yin Yang centerpiece / serving boards #3: flush trim success

01-19-2021 04:24 AM by BillGo | 0 comments »

I set out today to use the spare glue ups to try and address as many of the four issues identified in the last post. Because I was starting with the glue ups I already had, I could not address the grain orientation issue, but i could try to address the other three issues: the router bit, the prioritization of lines to flush trim approach, and the direction of cut. The bit: This is the Whiteside UDC9112 compression flush trim bit. I kept the “bite size” about the same to be c...

Yin Yang centerpiece / serving boards #2: flush trim failures

01-18-2021 05:28 AM by BillGo | 3 comments »

Overnight, I glued up two panels I would use for the yin/yang pieces. I made one of maple and one of walnut, both 21” square. This would give me enough wood to make two of the centerpieces… When I looked at the pattern to make one, there was so much waste, it was only slightly more wood to make two. I took the squares and using the templates, traced them out on the bg squares with a little space around them so I could cut them apart with the band saw. I should have taken more p...

Small Projects #35: Bill Press

01-10-2021 10:12 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

SWMBO ask for place to keep monies flat and orderly ahead of bank day. Had a chunk of purpleheart kicking around and made this box. Purpleheart cash keeper The box is 1/4” stock except for the weight which is full 15/16”. The full width stock was sanded to make the finger curve so both sides would be exact copies after resawing. I have about a 5/32” thick center cut with an odd semicircle cutout. The half moon grip was cut from a piece of scrap mahogany using my pla...

Hand tool project in progress

01-09-2021 11:45 PM by Oldtool | 2 comments »

I started a new project directly after the holidays, a dining room buffet for my daughter, to be made in the same design as my previous project – her dining room table, a weathered country look. Same wood, silver maple, and this time I wanted to do as much hand tool work as possible. I started with the top, 60” X 17”, with breadboard ends. First, after milling the two boards, I jointed by hand, using a fence on my No. 7 Stanley which provides a pretty square edge. However...

Baby bow saw #3: Wrapping it up

12-27-2020 09:37 PM by Dave Polaschek | 11 comments »

I got the bow saw completed today. I still want to decorate it, but it’s together and functional now. First on today’s menu was getting the arms shaped. They don’t really need to be thinner, but making them a little thinner will make the saw more comfortable to use. I used a drawknife to get the other dimension thinned down and smoothed. With that done, I mixed up some epoxy and glued the pins into the handles. Then some quick chamfering on the corners of the arms, mostly...
