Project Build #1: Barn Door Console with Plans

07-20-2018 05:30 PM by TimberAndAshDesigns | 0 comments »

With the Farmhouse fad and the number of DIYers at its peak I found myself in a unique situation of serving multiple clients while only building one piece of furniture. I rarely build the same item twice so having a detailed sketch or plan is not the norm in my shop. Usually I will have several sketches, sometimes rough CAD style drawings but never a full blueprint of what I will be building. For this project I decided to take the design aspect one step further and create reproducible plan...

Chest of Pine Drawers #13: A second drawer is done

07-20-2018 03:36 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just one more to do.Got busy yesterday….rest of the dovetails for the (NOW) top drawer were done. Had an issue with a knot right where the dado was going through… Was a bit rough on the Stanley #39. Mitre saw wasn’t cutting the walls level..was hard to see the far side.Got out a panel saw, to level the cuts.. The knot didn’t bother this saw a bit. First drawer seemed to like the middle opening better.. So the second drawer made is now the Top Drawer. ...

My Dust Collector Mod #2: Minor Update

07-20-2018 03:19 PM by BrettLuna | 0 comments »

I took yesterday off to be home for the replacement of my well pump and took some of that time to tinker with the dust collector. I added some foam tape the filter cap and to the outside bottom of the tub, where the clamp secures the dust bag. Much better seal there, now. While I was emptying the dust bag, I tossed a few handfuls on the floor for an impromptu test. This thing sucks more than it ever has. My guess is the old filter bag had about 25 ft² of surface area. With about 10 ti...

Grandsons in the workshop:: Continued.. #6: build #5

07-20-2018 12:46 AM by oldguy2 | 2 comments »

And the box is looking good. The top has beveled edges and we tried the block plane but the end grain went better with the belt sander. we did a little then checked progress. On the bottom we had drawn the box outline and allowed for an extra almost 3/16 projection. and I had him sand the extra to the line for the projection. Hardwood made this slow but that helped with not removing too much and checking the progress. We also did a practice piece. I keep telling him th...

Got the first drawer out of the clamps yesterday…..planes and the beltsander to clean things up. Had to keep working on the sides…drawer was binding a bit….finally got it to almost close….wax on the moving parts helped with that last inch….added a pair of knobs, so I could at least pull the drawer back out… Hauled both 1×8 planks to the shop. Circular saw to cut out the very bad spots…. A regular Knot Farm. Somehow managed to get en...

Chest of Pine Drawers #11: Dovetails?

07-18-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 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...
