Chest of Pine Drawers #11: Dovetails?

07-18-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ah yes, the old debate….Tails first..vs..Pins first…...Dungeon Shop goes Pins first. So.. My bevel square. There is a small combo square laying there as well. bevel is set to the angle I use for dovetails(need to write it down, sometime..) Where the groove comes through, one side of the pin is straight. Covers the groove. Then I work from each edge towards the center, laying out a few pins. had two backsaws to use, one was the “Veteran” and the other was...

Chest of Pine Drawers #10: Plugging along

07-18-2018 02:26 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Was a very busy day, yesterday… I’ll post this in a couple episodes today. First off, needed to get the case off the bench. To do that, I needed to make a bunch of plugs, install them…and then trim them all flush…. Veritas 3/8” Tapered Plug Cutter.. It does have a bad habit of biting off a plug, now and then. I try to avoid any knots, as well….a pin knot got “plugged”, anyway…Cutter ate 2, chewed up a third, and that pi...

Chest of Pine Drawers #7: A little assembly...

07-09-2018 04:06 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well…the cussing wasn’t quite at Drill Instructor level…..more like Squid level…..I made sure that fan was hauled to the shop, this time… And set on “HIGH”...goal was to get the case up onto the empty bench. Slide the loose side off the frames. Figures, had to turn the case around, had one frame that wanted to stick….with the frames still sitting there, I could attach the kickers…with a spot of glue and a screw at each end. I th...

More tools in the shop #5: Bandsaw scrap box on outfeed

07-08-2018 06:31 AM by Plasmon360 | 2 comments »

I have a wall behind my grizzly bandsaw and as I cut wood on it (primarily small pieces and such) the scraps fall behind the band saw and it is hard to reach to clean up the mess on the floor. So I built a box that attaches to the the back of the table. I drilled a hole on the cast iron (hopefully this is ok) and made a quick box from scrap pieces and attached at the outfeed of the band saw using piece of steel with holes drilled in it. I made sure the fence can still move back and forth. ...

Chest of Pine Drawers #6: Dry fits, top done, and other follies

07-08-2018 04:32 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Sides were trying to cup a bit…Let this set a day….while I did some figuring…. OK, today…hauled any and all clamps that were upstairs to the shop ( yardsale finds) and a few other goodies…Got the panel for the top of the case, cut to size….once al...

I have been asked to make an ancient Lap Harp and given a few photos to go by, not much really so it’s a bit experimental. Here are some pics so far.

More tools in the shop #4: Bandsaw storage

07-05-2018 05:22 PM by Plasmon360 | 2 comments »

My garage workshop has been getting very crowded. I am spending good amount of time trying to find things. I have been searching for places where I can store stuff near a particular tool. In this pursuit, I saw unutilized space inside my grizzly G0555LX 14 inch bandsaw tool stand. I thought I could make a drawer and put some of the tools and accessories that go with the bandsaw in it. The accessories include a crappy miter gauge that I rarely use, extra bearings, hex keys, wrench and blade...

Chest of Pine Drawers #1: Starting up

07-03-2018 01:59 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok..just can’t seem to sit around all day…gets boring. Daughter asked about building a smallish, 3 drawer Chest of Drawers for GrandBRAT #5……Mean Old Grandpa gets to do the build. Trying to keep things rugged, but simple….9 yr olds are a bit rough on things. After being told that Menard’s was too far of a drive, and to go to Lowes…the Boss got sticker shocked….1×2 x 6’ that cost 3 times what a 1×2 x 8’ did &...

Sooo… this happened this weekend:Hopefully I can get the Dust Collector assembled soon. I’m already planning a trashcan separator. :D Then, in a stunning turn of fortune, this ALSO happened:BD It’s a older generic 14” bandsaw. it needs some TLC, but it works and I only paid… wait for it,,, $25.00 for it. I’m still stunned I got it. Usually I’m the guy where the guy in front of me gets the thing and I JUST miss.Looking forward to cutting some thi...

Spring Bench #1: Building a bench around an 1800's wagon spring

06-30-2018 03:26 PM by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

My friend Leon Kytle in Idaho Falls gave me this old spring from a wagon seat from the 1800’s and asked me to design a bench around it and give him the plans so he could build one too around the other spring. I drew it up in Arizona with the bend up and down and decided it looked better with it bent down. I made us templates of the spring curve and gave him a drawing of how I was going to make it. But when I got home he called and said he thought the spring should be wider for stabil...
