Dovetail Drawers

In the process of building my Torque cabinet, I decided to try some dovetail drawers for the first time.I figure even if I screw them up…they are for me, so no cares about messing them up.

This is the set hereThey had a show special and the system came with nine template sets, six were a bonus, and the show price was I think $...

Work table progress #2: Work table with finish and essentially done, well for now anyway

09-13-2010 12:03 AM by Cato | 5 comments »

Here are pics of my work table. I figured now was good, because it is probably as clean as its going to get while the Danish oil is finishing drying. I put the Danish oil on the ash top which has finished out at 1 1/8 thick by 71 1/2 L x 35 wide. Base is finished in BLO, and for dimensional lumber it too has some nice grain and will be a good sturdy base for this table. It turned out larger than it looked when I ran a tape measure out from the wall deciding what size to make it! ...

Holtzapffel Workbench #2: Next Mortising Session

09-12-2010 08:46 PM by jcontract | 7 comments »

Completed the second mortise this weekend. It seems to be getting faster, but I have many more to go. It’s a slow process still cutting them by hand. The first mortise pictured below fits well, hoever I noticed a small hump in the middle of the shoulder which created a slight gap, so I cleaned it up with some light sandpaper. And a shoulder plane goes on the wish list. So one side stretcher in place. And then the next. I’m happy that they they fit pretty well. I th...
