09-23-2018 05:12 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Twas a time, long ago..when I could put in 8-12 hour days in the shop on a Saturday. methinks those days are behind me…..now it seems 4 hours at a stretch is pushing it…6 hours and I have to rest a day. Oh well, here we go Flattened the top a bit. Worked my way “down”..from a No. 8 jointer plane….through the No. 7c…to.. This little guy. A No. 3c…to clean up places the other big guys missed….or tore out. Once that was done… ...

Couple hours here, a couple there….Left side of the frame needed tuned up…to match the right side.. Got these joints fitting a little better….. Takes most of these tools, to fit the joints up….lot of flattening to do… The next trip to the shop..left side was tuned up. Both of the middle rails/stiles were also done…which left the curved center piece to do. Three nails, and a thin piece of plywood, mark out a fair curve…then cut that on the...

That OddLots Ad #10: A tale of three tasks to do

09-14-2018 02:35 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I set myself three jobs to do today…the second end panel needed a rebate made, to house the plywood back. Once that was done ( task #1) I could install both end panels onto the “mainframes”, and get rid of the clamps holding things together. (Task #2) and finally, needed to build a pair of frames to use with a drawer, and install those (task#3)........Got the rebate milled.. Unclamped the panel, set it in the leg vise, use the Wards (Stanley)#78 to plane the rebate&...

That OddLots Ad #7: Bottom frame and the dividers

09-11-2018 03:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Monday..normally the shop is closed. However, sitting around the house doing nothing gets BORING…makes a great motivator to get something done. Too wet for yard work….might as well head to the shop..Bottom frame needed built. I have a way of cutting mortises on the ends of a board..I use the tenon to lay out for the mortise Then I use a backsaw at an angle, to saw as much as I can….even dragging the toe back out of the cut a few times Then a mortise chisel tha...

Hauled the Pine 1×2s to the shop…and set up the smaller mitresaw.. To cut four long stiles, and 9 rails.. Then cut tenons on the rails.. Had some s...

That OddLots Ad #2: Starting up

09-07-2018 11:47 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, these were hauled to the shop…took a couple trips.. All five needed to be cut down to around 41” long..leaves a bit to trim on the ends when done.. Marked out a cut line, trying to get the “best” of the board IN the 41”...the rest will be on stand-by for smaller parts Worked my way down the stack…each board was set up on a pair of scrap pine boards, and the a clamp to hold them all still, while I cut the excess wood off…. As much ...

A simple Pine Stool #2: Day 2 and three

08-24-2018 03:07 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Both trips to the shop were a bit short….one was governed by how long the dryer needed to run…the other was until the back said STOP. Got the panel out of the clamps…and planed flat. .Still using that same old plane…Stretcher got some lines drawn on it, and sent to the bandsaw…came back like this.. Used it to lay out for two mortises.. Note to self: LEAVE the lines…better fit that way… Dry fit…also marked which way the wedges will g...

A simple Pine Stool #1: start up with some scraps

08-23-2018 04:19 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok. Had a few Pine scraps…too large for the fire pit, might as well build something…one plank was a might too narrow, and a bit too thin…..and had a big old knot.. Knot had to go…cut the “good” ends at 8” long….The other boards? A 1×10,,,had a few issues….a pitch pocket, and a knot just waiting to fall out….board #3? Also had those two issues, plus a wany edge…the 1×4 will be used as a stretcher….marked...
