  1. Simple enough title. Thinking maybe build a box from the results? For right now, this will be about turning thick scraps into thin scraps..and the steps I use.. First, rounded up a few likely suspects.. Then set up the tablesaw. Wanted to saw a kerf all around each piece....helps with the handsaw part. had to check the blade.. Run the blade all the way up, use a square to check for any tilt...no gaps seen. That red plate sit lower than the surrounding top, and has a wide opening..too wide. So. I use a "Zero Clearance Overlay" of 5mm plywood. Sl
  2. Well, still had a plank of Walnut sitting around in the shop. 6/4 by 10" by 4' long. Decided (for some strange reason) to try to resaw the plank to something a bit thinner..... Clamped it up on the bench. Ran a jointer plane along the edges. End closest to the camera? I wasn't about top plane THAT much off. Found a stick of Oak, and a couple c clamps. Plan was to go as deep and straight as I could, and work my way around all four edges.....that WAS the plan... Saw didn't like this kind of work. Either bogged down, or pulled to one side. Tried an end cu
  3. Yesterday I walked into the shop with little time to do anything because we just had a full day, and it was late afternoon and I was really itching to do something, anything! So while LOML was getting ready for us to head out to our Anniversary dinner, I jumped out to the wood pile and just grabbed a log, any log, and cut it down to a block on my band saw. I am horrible at identifying logs based on bark, so I did not know what I was cutting into till I cut into it, as soon as the blade hit the end of the log I smelled the Pine, so that is what I had, was pine. When I originally grabbed t
  4. Other WIP was getting a bit long-winded, so might as well do one about the other side of the dresser build. First, a bit of glue up had to go on.. each panel was "popped out", a bead of glue run around on the rebates. Panel back in, and nailed down. I also trimmed the top of the corner posts flush with the top rail.. was going to handsaw this....decided the cordless saw was quicker....Set this mess aside, and clear the deck... The shiny end? I ran a plane around, to level the top a bit, was getting a might beat up, lately. Time to process six parts....
  5. That are too big for the burn pile? Got three 2 x 10 x 18" scraps.....will try to build a plant stand of some sort out of them. Will take quite a bit of resaw/rip cutting...we'll see Single Brain Cell Sketch Up is right now working on the details......waiting on the results. One of the three will get made into a set of legs.....may be a bit different style than the last batch.....other two MAY be a glue up....maybe. Stay tuned.....
  6. A friend is making some Japanese tool boxes for his grandkids (I did a show and tell of these at the May club meeting). I suggested he use wood 1/2-5/8" thick to keep them from getting two heavy. I also suggested the following method that I've used before to get good wood. I buy 2x10 or 2x12 Southern Yellow Pine (SYP) meant for joists. It is relatively knot free. And if you get some with the pith down the middle you can saw out an inch or so and get perfect quarter-sawn lumber. Then you re-saw and you get wood just a fraction less than 3/4" that you plane down to desire dimension.
  7. For a lid for the latest rifle case, mesquite was selected. Love that stuff but, it can be challenging. All my mesquite of the required length and width is milled at a full 8/4. Nice for tables and such but not for box lids. So, it was resaw time. My Shopsmith band saw is limited to 6" of resaw capacity and the lid needs to be 6.75" ( I ripped it to 7.5") so, I used the table saw and got most of it cut. Had about 1.5" left in the middle. No problem. It's only 48" long. Whipped out the Disston and went to work. At about the sawblade's depth, internal stresses grabbed it and everything stopped.
  8. I gotta get me some maple boards. I have this little wood rail that I fasten to one side. it gives me a two sided reference to get my forst teo sort of square and sort of flat surfaces.
  9. As this one needs to be tossed out.. Bottom has broken out the sides. and the back. May salvage the hinges. Unsure about the lid, just yet. Still need a new home for these toys.. Rosewood, Brass & Steel. needs a better home. Old box has had a cat pee on it a couple times....time to toss it out. Found some chunks of Cherry... Mostly 4/4 rough sawn Cherry, left over from a Candy Box build. Figured I could resaw them down to 1/2" thick stock, and built a new box? Marked a center line, and made a resaw cut on the bandsaw. Roughly 1/2" thic
  10. Measured out an 18" long section, and proceeded to crosscut a chunk off.. Took a lot of wax on the blade. I didn't feel like dragging the circular saw down the stairs... 18" was a bit too much to crosscut on the bandsaw, Finally Set the one section aside, needed to joint one edge square... The plane has a walnut fence, to help stay square, Plane is a Stanley No.7c, type 9 Shavings seem to be walnut, also... A little sap wood. Needed this board to have a square corner, to make it easier to resaw.. This is from the second board, first one
  11. At least it looks like, smells like Cherry. A look at the bark? Two pieces with bark, sitting on some pine I had earlier resawn. Not all the Cherry came off the bandsaw... Not the prettiest ones. Some of the others were a bit...worse.. Had a tilt going on too. Will scrub plane these two flat this weekend. Now, about that box? I figure I can get all four sides out of these two boards. I might be able to get at least a top out of the other two.. Might get both the top and bottom? Cut in half, and glue two panels. Laid out some t

    4x4 on bandsaw

    From the album: Pine 4x4 Table

    Looking at the side of this little table. This is how it started out. Four non-treated 4x4x30" cut-offs, resawn into a table.
  13. Seems there were 4 Pine (non-treated) 4x4s in the Dining Room.....Boss is in clean up mode.....Soooo Used a brand new toy for some Layout work Christmas present..Squanson 6" combo square. Set it at just over an inch. Mark a line down each side of a 4x4.....prepare to resaw! Bandsaw has a fairly new 1/2" wide blade. First couple cuts....not that great. needed some adjustments before the second 4x4 was cut. Still wanted to wiggle around the lines. Got the first slab onto the bench, and went to flatteb a side or two, used a scrub jack plane...
