Jointer plane all done….kinda. I’m gonna put a chamfer on the bottom edges, and at some point in the future i’ll make fence to attach to the side for perfect square jointing.
Maple body with a wedge of black walnut and an African blackwood cross pin.
In a tradition that dates back to this morning, Sunday’s are when i work on stuff for me. There’s lots of things for the workshop i want to build and unless i put time aside for them i’ll end up rushing them and doing a poor job.
This is some more work being done on a wooden jointer plane. I’ve got plans (and a blade and some wood) to make a smoother once i’ve finished this one.
Carcass glue up step by step.
In a random moment of childishness i started using Port and Starboard to mark the parts for the left and right.
Some clean up is needed, but at long last this looks like a cabinet.
Hooray, glue ups all round.
These can then be cut to size, and we’re almost ready to glue this thing together. Pretty soon it’s going to start looking like a cabinet, i promise.
Shelves for the vanity unit are in. Doors and a shelf will be added to the unit once the plumbing/tiling/decorating have been finished.
The side panels for a wine cabinet are going together.
Seems today is new toy day. G cramps, bench cookies (not as tasty as they sound) and a couple of samples from Button Fix. They’re a fixing system for panels, though all i can think is ‘secret compartment’ will have to have a play with these.
Setting up the router table to put curves into the sides of a frame and panel cabinet. Hardest part was trying to draw a curve with only one hand holding the stick in place. Two G cramps to the rescue.
My friend Owl Shield does metal plate printing. I’ve been after one of his prints for ages, and as a present/card he gave me one for my birthday. To say i’m pleased would be an understatement. Time to frame it.
A simple walnut frame, chamfered on the inside and outside edges. Add in a cardboard mount made from a colour that works well with both the wood and the print and we’re getting some where.
I’ll get the glass for it on monday, and put in up on the wall where it belongs.
