Compound dovetail joints

12-05-2012 01:27 AM by DouginVa | 2 comments »

Can anybody recommend a good site with instruction on cutting compound miter joints. I found a rather corny video on YouTube that wasn’t all that helpful. I’m looking for some good detailed instruction.

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #5: Drawers, Drawers and More Drawers

09-02-2013 08:29 PM by scarpenter002 | 2 comments »

After a number of weekends working around other commitments, I have finally been able to finish the drawers for my new cabinets. Below are a number of progress pictures from my drawer making adventures. Next up, the torsion box tops. I am planning to use 3/4” plywood for the interior supports sandwiched between sheets of 1/2” plywood. Between work and personal commitments, I will probably not be able to start on the tops until the last weekend in Sept...

Trying new woodworking skills #14: Table top miter problem

11-23-2013 02:50 AM by BJODay | 2 comments »

The plans I’m following call for table tops made up of glued-up boards. I have some very nice Qsawn oak boards with very straight grain. I thought it would look better if I mitered and rotated pieces along the board so the grain would “follow” around the perimeter of the tops. I like my miter saw so I cut the boards for the smallest table using it. Well for some reason I got some flex in my blade so the cut is not perfectly straight. I’m using a thin kerf 12” ...

CNC Woodworking G-Code Creator #1: Introduction and Jointer Module

02-17-2014 04:07 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 2 comments »

I have a cnc router and have used it heavily in my shop because it is an extremely useful tool. However, it is not really the quickest and easiest tool to use. To make a simple cut, I have to go through as many as 3 programs, make a few calculations, set up the workholding, etc, etc. It was getting old for simple work. I was just about ready to go out and buy a sawstop and a router table, but then I thought, why not make a simple program that will make the router into a very easy tool to ...

2040 Makita Planer

05-01-2014 09:10 AM by recycle1943 | 2 comments »

I can’t find any recent info here about the 2040 and was wondering if anybody still has one in their shop ? In the next few days I’m going to look at one that was supposed to have been rebuilt a couple years ago. Since rebuild it hasn’t had more than 2 or 3 boards thru it so it should be as new.My question is – just how long would I expect the rollers to last and is there a maintenance procedure to follow ?

Matt's Long Awaited Workshop Renovation #1: In the Beginning

03-18-2009 09:55 PM by Matt | 2 comments »

In the beginning, there was a workshop. It was very cold. Especially in the winter. It was also messy. The owner had not mounted anything permanently, on the walls, because he hoped that, some day, he would be able to add insulation and wall covering and provide a place for the efficient warming of this desolate space. Ok, enough of that. In case you didn’t read the title or deduce from my workshop page that I’m talking about my shop, it’s me. Honestly, I had p...

Chair back joinery almost done

11-25-2009 01:45 AM by John | 2 comments »

Put in a good days work in the shop and man did it feel good. You know those days where it just flows. Today was one of those. I had an HVAC contractor come over today to look at the furnace so I just started chopping out mortises for the spindles while he worked. I used a mortise chisel for the first time and really liked the way it performed versus a bench chisel for that task. I finished the mortise and tenons for the chair back rails and stiles. In the picture its just standing upright on...

Coffee and cake, anyone, or pumpkin pie?

Grretings guys: Just thought I’d throw in my Christmas gifts, too. How about some mug holders, and a few cutting boards.Seems like everyone got on the cutting board kick this year—me included. You guys are a bad influence.But this time I deceided to go with coffee mug holders. I ‘ve made several in the past, and they seem to go over good with folks. These are going to some of my wifes customers in her beauty salon. I call her a barber(she says different, tho)! So far IR...
