Secret Door

01-11-2021 08:38 PM by BuildItYourself | 6 comments »

Hello Metamorphosis of my workshop. Today we are making a secret door to the second workshop. The door is invisible against the whole wall made of old boards. To open the door, simply turn the plane clockwise. The whole wall has its own atmosphere and looks very nice. Watch the full video tutorial:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGxXnATCbWU&feature=youtu.be Thanks for looking.-BIY

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...

Small Projects #34: Cat Can Corral

01-08-2021 11:36 PM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

The better half asked for a corral for the cat food cans on the kitchen counter. The design was to be as simple as possible and leave no hiding spots for any potential miniature livestock. Because of the size of the cans the corner support space was limited. To maximize both internal space and strength the side slats are dado’d into the 45° corner posts instead of overlaying as in a normal crate. The carton the cans come in is 7”x14” and allows 1-7/8” vertical space...

Boxes from Red Cedar #12: Dividers, and some work on the lids

01-04-2021 08:58 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

OK, clamps are removed…for a little bit…There will be gussets added to the “break-away” spots…just a triangle of 1/4” plywood… That Cedar scrap will come in handy in a moment … As it is the same thickness as the lids….lids can fit down flush with the “gable” ends…One was notched..the other was not. Instead I notched that end of the top bar….leaves more gusset to hold the breaky spot.test fit… Not t...

Boxes from Red Cedar #11: Slips and a floor

01-04-2021 03:18 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Doesn’t sound like woodworking, does it? Well..”slips” are those thin wood strips, to use instead of ploughing a groove. The wood in this project is barely 1/4” thick….so, that strip of Ash was made into 4 strips of 3/8” by 1/4” last episode, I used the Stanley No. 2246 Mitre box, to cut the 45 degree ends… next strip/slip ready…then an end slip…each are getting glued and clamped in place… Looking for a tight fit in...

Boxes from Red Cedar #10: working towards a glue up

01-02-2021 07:32 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Note to self: NEVER get in a hurry to get a task done, tends to go badly….. Ok, Corners # 3 and #4….figured I could get those done… These dovetails were not too hateful….however… Had to figure a way to cut out the notch…..I even used that backer board….other end of which is clamped into the bench vise….saw wanted to wander a bit…and then the skinniest chisel I had, to pop the waste out….also popped both sides of the notch o...

Sorted through all the leftovers….found a couple to make a lid from…but, they wanted to be Hunting Bows instead…We have ways… Just let them “chill” in there, for a day or three….each closed the others curve down flat….more sorting..all the large ugly knots are now gone….needed a pair of long and a pair of shorts…to do a couple glue-ups.. And, set these aside for a day.. After a day or so…they came out of the clampsR...

Boxes from Red Cedar #5: While waiting on the laundry..

12-24-2020 05:58 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Shavings happened…. The thing about these Cedar planks…one side is already smooth, but the other was left rough….since both faces will show, I needed to smooth the rough face down…used the heads of 2 screws, to hold the ends still long enough. Good thing these were both too long….I can cut off the “bad” end….as soon as I know how much…Handles were about the same..Even that knot seemed to plane nicely….sharp enough plane? Bot...

Boxes from Red Cedar #4: From scraps to a tray

12-23-2020 03:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

As I guess the sides of this tray make it a box…sort of? Sorted through the leftovers….managed to find three decent looking ones….none were bowed…just the T&G edges were not the best looking..or ..locking. Tablesaw to rip those off. Was trying for a 9” x 12” panel… This was so much fun to do…..first blue clamp wanted to pop the 3 slats up into a curvy thingy….started to add the cauls, to keep things close to flat….....
