Will certainly be filling the space up smile.gif

Got another idea that I think can fill the space up a good amount wink.gif

Bruce one of the pet lambs thought he would come up and see what's up. Was more interested in sticking his head in boxes around the shed though lol
20121019133454.jpg

Since the thicknesser I used at school had a few chips in the blade (GRRR) spent about an hour belt sanding the sides to make all the imperfections go away, belt was a 'used' 120 grit piece
20121019140026.jpg

Time to smoothen the sides up and then further make sure there are no ridges because you can certainly feel if there is anything wrong with a certain spot if the rest is smooth! This was I think around a 80 grit on a circular sander
20121019144414.jpg

After happy with the piece of timber, it was time to move to the 240 grit wet/dry. After 5 minutes of nice, slow and steady sanding. I can assure you that there was much pleasure in rubbing my hand around the timber... my GOD it is smooth.
20121019150505.jpg

So this is what it looked like before sanding
20121019181153.jpg

And this is what a few minutes of 240 grit wet/dry does biggrin.gif
20121019181141.jpg

All the pieces have now been sanded down to get rid of all imperfections that I could
20121019191235.jpg

Sam and I discussing what to do next.
20121019192722.jpg

GOOD MAN SAM! That's right, have to have the aluminium rods for the 'files' to sit on
20121019192242.jpg

All cut to length and the ends filed down
20121019192654.jpg

All is well
20121019193039.jpg

both ends in, and the file fits. Looks like my measuring was correct biggrin.gif
20121019193800.jpg

Sam now bored and reflecting on life as it is tongue.gif
20121019193154.jpg

Predrilling holes for the sides to be nailed to the Side of the FRONT/BACK
20121019194153.jpg

Both sides done
20121019194311.jpg

Add a line of glue for extra support
20121019194812.jpg

Straightened it up and nailed em all in!
20121019194910.jpg

Now to do the next side smile.gif
20121019194743.jpg

Can't forget to add the rails in when putting the other side on!!
20121019195456.jpg

Predrilled the holes and put the nails in ready to smack em along the bottom.
20121019200647.jpg

Will get the front and handle put on tomorrow and put some pics up, got too dark to take a good pic of the box assembled! But here is the "dark pic" in the link
http://imageshack.us/a/img255/6959/20121019202147.jpg

Until the next draw smile.gif
post #63 of 194

Here is the draw unit in some decent light smile.gif Still have to get the draw front on too.
img5162x.jpg

Time to screw the rail sliders for the draw on. Firstly I pre drilled the hole with a very small drill bit, just to prevent any cracking of the MDF then in the screw goes!
img5163gi.jpg

Here is the bottom draw front, and after some 360 wet/dry. You can see the shiny'ness, it is so smooth biggrin.gif
img5169vf.jpg

Since I cannot do any more draws till I get some more custom wood, thought I would be useful and get the other sides legs sorted. So found some nice pieces of more Rimu, which will be thicknessed down a bit, and will router the edges too
img5173j.jpg

Ran them through the thicknesser, got hit in the face by a few flying chips. Lucky my safety glasses protected my eyes wink.gif
20121020135721.jpg
20121020135726.jpg
20121020140208.jpg
20121020140156.jpg

So now both pieces are lovely and square/flat/straight
img5179a.jpg

img5187p.jpg

Time to clean up the mess made by thicknessing...

A small update!

Clamping a bead across the front piece and the draw, to make sure that everything is lined up smile.gif
20121107142659.jpg

20121107142712.jpg

20121107142803.jpg


All lined up, happy with it. Now let us screw it on!
20121107143807.jpg


The final result
20121107145933.jpg


Time to sort out the spacing between each draw, found the right packers.
20121107153322.jpg

20121107153246.jpg


Everything has been cut up to length and sanded down for the middle draw unit.
20121112103902.jpg


Let us commence the building!
20121112110513.jpg

20121112111149.jpg


Time to get the runners aligned and sorted too...
20121112100725.jpg

20121112112147.jpg


Getting the spacing sorted with the new packer, and then clamping and screwing again
20121112132017.jpg

20121112132806.jpg


So, One draw left which I shall finish tomorrow. That will be the main nitty gritty part over, then the rest of the build should be able to fly together in a very short period of time!

Will update again tomorrow night depending on the work achieved tomorrow smile.gif

A smallish update, but they are progressively getting more major.

Same as before of how to do the attach the front piece to the box
img5315qi.jpg

img5317x.jpg


Only one left to do!
img5318e.jpg


Here is my beast and the box of bits
img5322v.jpg


Time to router the edges of the legs! Here are the two bits that I will be using (note: the big one is for the legs, the small one is for a bevel around the outside of the draws)
img5364s.jpg

img5353edit.jpg


I hadn't used a router before, so got mum to show me how to do it,
20121114090227.jpg


We were left with a good result, nice smooth. lovely.
img5324n.jpg


Now time to sand the edges down so that there isn't a "step" from the flat piece to the curve (above pic)
img5340bw.jpg



Routered the edge of the LEFT and RIGHT side of all the draws and the BOTTOM of the bottom draw.
img5347f.jpg


Once I finished sanding the saw marks, the curve had kinda disappeared, no problems. Will re-router it again smile.gif
img5350g.jpg


The timber I am using is recycled stuff, so there are a few nail holes here and there. Clever trick, use the saw dust of the rimu that has been collected in the table saw bin and mix with PVA glue to make a nice formula that will fill in the holes, dry hard. and then be the most unnoticeable filler!
img5327ic.jpg


After the pva had dried, this is what we were left with
img5331.jpg

img5337e.jpg


The chisel then got it off to a nice smooth finish that will get sanded down, it might not look perfect, but you can notice a hole in a timber from a mile away
img5332nf.jpg

img5338qp.jpg


Now it's time to get a piece of wood sorted for the side rail connecting the two legs together
20121114101336.jpg

20121114101422.jpg


Might as well get the back runner cut while I am here!
20121114101514.jpg

Thats it for now, time to do some sanding and finishing touches to the draw unit ( - oil'd) so that we can move onto the lid!
post #69 of 194
Looking good! Keep up the good work! Can't wait to own my own house... that B will have a garage or barn for me to splurge on wood working tools and have the room to utilize em!

All right then, small updates seem to be tickling along.

Had to do a quick check that everything was flush/square, and also the right length before proceeding
img5406wa.jpg


Had to mark some squared lines so I knew where to drill my holes for the dowels.
20121120172629.jpg

Also had to do some measuring for the legs dowel holes too
20121120173426.jpg


And shavings be flying everywhere!
img5421am.jpg

Time to get Drilling dem leeeegs!!
20121120174801.jpg


After some glue, good to see everything lines up!
20121120175725.jpg


Now let us clamp it together, also making sure that it has still remained square!
img5423ml.jpg


The next day, I opened the shed up.. to find my cat -_-
img5430k.jpg


Anywho, after the cat had been vacated to somewhere else. I tacked on the back rimu sheet on. Though it looks a bit 'odd' After everything has been stained it'll look better, and besides. Who sees the back? Note; the other side of it is unstained smile.gif
20121121152859.jpg


It is now time to plan everything out and make final adjustments, eg shortening the width of the desk by about 200mm because I will be using the Extended mouse mat by Razer, and want the mat to look "in place" when it is on the keyboard tray, also makes less "dead space" in the lid smile.gif
