  1. Spent most of the day "screwing around." #8 x 2.75" w/ #2 Robertson needing countersink, #6 x 5/8 w/ #2 Squipps, #1 Squipps, or #1 Robertson, #6 x 1.25" w/ #2 Robertson. Full extension 12" & 14" side glides with 1/2" extra clearance on hinge side, 3.5" from top, 2.75" from bottom, with width +0 to -1/16". 1/2" dovetails 2" on center, 3/4" dovetails 3" on center. Cup hinges, face frame, 3/8" overlay, self closing, w/ one set of four 35mm holes, 22.5 mm from edge 16" on center, 4" from ends, the other 35mm holes, 22.5 mm from edge set so side glides did not hit on the way out and miss face frame on bottom. 🤔 My head hurts. Last week, I did 140 1/4" shelf pin holes, 32mm apart on the top half of this unit.
  2. Another Mike Peace Tip-
  3. Maybe getting old , maybe tired , maybe it just is not that important. Oh you say what am I referring to. One I used wood and find jointery to make shop cabinets and fixtures. Having accumulated a fair amount of counter tops and divider panels from drugstores (MDF and particle board) it is time to use it. Started some cabinets with all screws, not much that could be glued. Various colors and even some covered in Formica. So you be the judge......,.lazy, tired, thrifty, or just don’t care. more later as this is the best materials I had.
  4. I plan to install 1/4" sheet rock over a wall of wood paneling. About 7 panels of sheet rock. Is there an attachment available to use with my drill driver to drive and set the screws to the proper depth? If so, what is the attachment called ? With 1/4" sheetrock I'm concerned about driving the screws too deep.I'm guessing that thin sheets will be a bit fragile. I know this will require a bit of framing modifications around windows and the entrance door. This will be a better aesthetic choice than painting the paneling.
  5. I've been trying to orgranize my fastener collections. I found that 12 oz juice containers really work well, roughly accommodating a box of screws (100 or so, I think). Anyway, when the dust settled I found myself the proud puzzled possessor of 6 bottles of fine thread DW screws, 1" through 2.5". What would these be for? Maple studs? I don't unnderstan. Looks nice tho.
  6. Went and bought the latch today. And even some holders. The holders had bolts,, need to go and buy some screws for them. About like the "tabs" you turn to replace a screen in the screen door. Will adapt them.. So, I got out that little No.6 eggbeater, and drilled some pilot holes. Had to use the smallest #1 Phillips screwdriver I had handy to drive four screws... I think this will just have to do. i did try to get a better picture of that lid. Camera kept trying to say it is yellow.....adjusted photo to show it more like what it really is in colour.. The only sap wood I had in the shop was either Cherry or Walnut. Might have gotten a little of each. Cherry heartwood for the center stripe.
  7. So far, so good (Shhhhh!) so, without much further ado Toys I though would be needed...after all, I did clean the bench off Well, close enough for today...got the parts out of hiding.. Yep, that scrap of pine was stuck to the glued up stuff. Wide chisel to pop it off. This thing had a problem...needed one more leg....Did NOT feel like going through all of THAT again. Made the fourth leg to sit on the surface, with some glue, and a couple screws....and use it as a back leg A steel plate for a keeper. Used to be a junky saw plate. Grinder and beltsander to round it up. Masonary bit to drill the hole for the screw. Sand the plate free of any burrs... Next item.. That counter bore made 8 holes. Then I can back with a normal drill bit and slotted the holes a bit, Brass screws are installed, and the slots are clocked.. And, even match the one in the steel plate. A little more sanding, a bit of filler in two holes.. Standing up on it's own FOUR feet. Will need to trim a "toe nail" or two. bench top leans a bit as well...Got out the BLO/Varnish blend and a cheapo brush. And gave everything a seal coat, from the feet.. To the underside of the top.. Just a seal coat. Will rub this mess down tomorrow, and add a second coat...as for the top? Meh.....it is a start. Need to rearrange a light or two, to get a better looking picture? Or maybe just take it upstairs? I think this will be enough for one day, don't want to push Me Irish Luck any further that need be...stay tuned, the "Finish" line is in sight. I hope...
  8. That to thr GrandBRATS being here and wanting to go places.....work on the Cherry Box has ground to a halt...almost. Needed to give the brain a rest for a day or two, anyway.... Jig? Well, I needed a way to plough a groove into the frame's skinny and thin parts. Hard to hold onto them AND the Stanley #45......router table? Nah, I'd have to dig it out, set it up and listen to it scream....not. Laid down a scrap of pine. Two screws, countersunk to fix it in place on the bench. Some small brads to add a couple little piece to make a square corner. Used one of the frame's parts to make sure I had clearence along the outside edge... Something like this. The screw sticking up "in the way"? Well, it helps hold things in place... I think I can run a plane along the edge to dress it up a bit. All set up for the short ends. Then I can move the screw a bit, and set up for the longer sides. Should be able to run the 45 along the edge a few times. Not talking a lot of plane effort needed to plough these grooves, Maybe 3-4 swipes per piece. I have to double check to make sure I am grooving the TOP of each piece. When I get back to the shop, we'll see how this goes. Jig is a one time use thing. I will need to build a different one when I am working on the lid's panel. Might take as long to plough four grooves as it did to make the jig. Not that I'm cheap, or anything.....I intend to re-use the jig's parts for the panel work...
