  1. I have been asked about the Bow Sanders I was using in the Wooden Block Plane Post. I went back and found the tutorial I did on another forum an 2016. Quote:(2016) This year I made all the members of the woodworking group a bow sander for the spirit of the holidays. I will let the pictures tell the story. they were made from maple and an old poplar plank I had laying around. the first picture is what was left of the plank. The sandingbelts were from WoodWorkers Supply, Kingspor. Herb
  2. Rather than keep going on a too long of a post, maybe a "part 3" would work better? Box was set free of the clamps.....needed a bit of clean up Yeah...gaps, pins sticking up....Ve haft vays.... The #3 plane needed sharpened, good thing I have others on standby... A little "detail work" with the 60-1/2, mainly the edges and the pins. Top edges needed a little bit, too.. Looking a bit better. Got all four sides planed smooth, pins no longer gap. Time for the lid's panel? Hmmm, might need a little bit of work.....well, this much...I use a machine... Just to get itall leveled out, still needs a bit of plane work ( in more ways then one..) Starting to look a bit better? Ends needed to be planed straight, as well Mouth on the plane is set nice and tight. Seems to work better than the #4. Panel still needs to be cut to final size, and a tongue milled on the edges. Frame pieces needed some work, as they were still wavy. And they need to be at least close to the same size. Millers Falls #14 ....square to check thickness. There is a screw at each end, both barely above the surface. One in the top, the other in the vise. Then I can tighten the vise to hold the slat in place. I can also stand each on an edge, and joint the edge.. I also had to make sure all four were the same width. You can see the screws. The back one was moved towards the vise, when the shorter parts were done. So...what is next? Well, I laid out a few toys... Which means I'll be doing more finger joints. Couple counties west of here now have Tornado "watches" going on....might need the shop for something other than woodworking?
  3. Well, took a few tries to get things done today......after fighting those brass corner plates and their tiny screws....laid the pattern rocker on it's side, clamped the pine 5/4 x4 in place to make a tracing......ooops, should have bought the 5/4 x 6 instead.. oh well, we do adapt in this shop. Adjusted things a bit. There is a way to prevent one from over-rocking. You add a recurve to the end of the rocker.. Oh, and meet my new beltsander that replaced the old B&D Dragster. Soo, I made one of these, took a break for awhile. Came back, traced a second one out, and bandsawed it to shape... not too bad. Well, according to the floor.. Twould appear that the HMS Pegleg has launched. Fit for John Silver himself......but, I needed to keep flipping this around, until.. Short leg #2 appeared. Both of the long posts, and the front short posts are now done. There is still enough of that 5/4 pine to make a crest or back rail. That sould finish up the drawknife work, Mortise and tenon jobs for a few days/weeks? Intend to cut a slot on the end of the posts, to fit over those rockers, And then add a pin through both. might work?
  4. Well, went done to take that thing out of the forest of clamps...then clamped it to the bench to work on the corners a bit.. Meh, could have been better, close up of the other corner? Once I got all the corners looking like this (well, almost) I could start on the base/bottom for the box. Laid out the length Nice part of this set up/ The off cut just drops straight down, and lays against the jaw of the vise. Dug out that corded router thingy. ran it around the edges.. then set the box on it, for a test fit.. Hmmm, base IS square, box isn't? Ve haft vays.....First off, I marked where a bunch of pilot holes were needed. Drilled the holes, flipped the base over, and got out another strange contraption.. The dang thing kept falling out of the chuck. Finally got the countersinks done.. Now about that box being out of square? Well, first I clamped the box into the vise. Laid the base onto the box. ran a few screws in on the far side, keeping things close. Then a clamp does the hard part.. Once it became square, by pulling that corner back a bit, I screwed the base all the way round. Only had one "miss" and go off into the inside...oh well. Next, needed a way to carry this box around, while I make the lids. Got out anout strange contraption... says Goodell-Pratt, used it to drill more pilot holes. Then attached the handle. Set this thing aside for the night. I did start a lid.....will need to do bread board ends.....meh. Bad enough this get two beveled edges, and two hinges each, now a bread board on the ends? Might take a full day to do just two lids...stay tuned...
  5. Well, lots of problems to fight through today. Door has been fine tuned to fit it's new home. Involved a lot of handplane work, I centered the panel to get rid of the gaps, then pinned it place. Was going to use the router to edge the sides and top with.....Could not get that #$@#$ collar out of the fixed base. Ok, we have ways.... Since I had bought this as a kit, I had a plunge base with it. Look right below the left handle, there are two plugs there. Matched the grain exactly between the plugs and the spot where they went. Pared off flat, sanded smooth( dried glue is a bear to get off planes) Got some cleats installed, and installed a floor, of sorts.. Didn't have enough plywood, so I hope this will do? Last two corner blocks were installed, with glue & screws.. And I cut some slots in all four of them. Easy enough to do, just drill a through hole, then rock the drill back and forth until a slot shows up. Reaching inside to screw the backtwo corner blocks in place was...interesting. Good thing the screw held on to my driverbit. Got the door hung, adjusted, and a handle on board. Rounded the corners of the top with a beltsander. Could have used the sabresaw, but the blade would deflect too much. Installed the handle on the door. Set this thing up on the bench, run the router around the sides I could get to, lift the beast up, roatae 180* and do what was missed. And ( drum roll, if you please) a PIP of this Enad Table in Oak I even made a sample, for the Boss to lok at, of a coat of BLO....it looks a bit on the light side. Up to her. Have it sitting beside her chair right now. Kind of leaves an empty feeling... Been awhile since I've seen that much open space.... Awaiting Boss' orders on what to finish it with, then I might post as a Project, IF anyone wants...
