Hand cutting dovetails #2: My Technique

03-12-2010 02:34 AM by DrewM | 18 comments »

Today I thought it would be a good idea to show you guys how I cut my dovetails. I don’t have all the proper tools for the job or the best of the tools that I do own. So far I have been able to get by with what is seen here. I had some scrap oak laying around in the shop so I decided to use some of it for practice. I start by laying out the “tails” first. First step is to find the center of the board and divide it how ever you see fit. I find the center of the board by j...

A Flag Display Box #9: The Final Details Begin...

03-12-2010 02:29 AM by littlecope | 12 comments »

The finish line is in sight, but there’s still a few details to cross off the list. I left off here a few days ago, sides up and pinned, “Glass” in place: Yesterday, I took a few minutes to cut off the excess finger joint material. Some people wondered why I left them over-long… They helped me out through out this build and now are helping me one last time. I cut half-way through one side…Then cut all the way through the second side…Then complete the first ...

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #6: The Top: part 2

03-11-2010 10:38 PM by DoctorDan | 4 comments »

After the glue up of the bench top I moved onto some initial hand flattening. With the top in two halves and then again as a single piece; I took to the number 5 and number 7 stanleys (and a lot of sharpening). My new veritas straight end came into it’s own at this point. Recognizing that it might be some time until i’m up to ‘finishing’ the top, I gave it a quick sand and a thin layer of shellac. (The father-in-law inspecting the progress.)

Spindles #5: It's raining, but I'm still finishing

03-11-2010 07:05 PM by Lisa Chan | 2 comments »

It’s been a great week for getting caught up on spindle production. The weather in North Seattle is gray and wet. That means that shop time won’t be that pleasant. That’s OK. I have a handful of orders to sand, polish, and finish. I’m looking for a good source for Birdseye Maple and Tulipwood. Later today, I’m meeting up with a new client and we’re going to spin some yarn together.

Going Pro as a Woodworker Part 3 - Developing Your Brand

03-11-2010 06:27 PM by Charles Brock | 10 comments »

Some of the most talented people in the world work in complete anonymity. If they are lucky after death somebody discovers their work and it becomes something of value. A professional should receive re numeration for their work and money too! Ha! How do you make the necessary connections with a qualified customer? What Is Your Brand? For years I was a general furniture maker. I built a large number of beds, tables and cupboards. I was a furniture maker with very little identity in a tow...
