A Strategy for Woodworking #13: A Neatness and Precision

2 days ago by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

In Pete Dexter’s book Deadwood, Wild Bill Hickok’s partner, Charley Utter, is thinking to himself, “He liked having a drawer, it was a neatness you could see just sliding it open.” Making drawers requires a precision and calm missing from some other jobs around the shop. Cleaning out the dust collector comes to mind. Or hand planing some misbegotten wood like a rowed grain khaya. Drawer building on the other hand needs careful measuring, straight parts, and clear thinking to do a good job....

How to mortise a long rail.

2 days ago by Julian | 1 comment »

I am in the process of building another side gate for the house. I had two rails that were 55” long.Too long to fit in the mortising jig which I normally clamp to the workbench. I needed to raise the mortising jig approximately 9”. Instead of building something which would have taken more time and material; I looked around the garage and noticed the bottom drawer of my router cabinet was the size I needed. After emptying the drawer and removing the false front, it ...

2 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Another busy weekend has come and gone. The speed that time passes continues to amaze me. I must be busy.It is cool here this morning, with just a bit of rain. After the past few days which were rather warm and sticky, I am happy for the change. Although our weather here in Nova Scotia seems very mild in when I hear about how hot it has been in other places. I feel very fortunate.I made some progress on my "Nevermore" plaque yesterday. I didn't quite complete it, but it will be ...

So, lots of progress. Where did we leave off? Something like this… (its getting better in terms of organization) Finally it was time to call in the big guns.

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #5: Finishing off the bark, Marking the Cut

3 days ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I don’t usually sand with 60 grit, but I went through disc after disk getting the last of the bark off the sides and getting it rough sanded. I’ve left a tiny bit of the inner layer of bark here and there because it is quite difficult to get all of it off. I will apply a bit of finish over a section at some point to see how it looks before deciding if I need to go the extra mile. Because of the sharp angle on most of the edge, it will not be particularly visible day to day. He...

Why buy it when you can make it! #9: First turning project - Cherry Pepper Mill [Part 2]

3 days ago by paxorion | 0 comments »

I picked up some Arm-R-Seal on Friday during the Woodcraft anniversary sale and I am definitely a believer in the product’s quality. For starters, it is so easy to use, and levels itself off very nicely. I have finished four coats so far, and plan on putting 1 more coat on tonight, before I let the mill cure for a few days. Looking forward to a grind come next weekend! (My wife can’t wait)

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #4: Thinking through the Full Blind Miter Jig

3 days ago by CharlesA | 0 comments »

For the waterfall leg, I’m using Full Blind Multiple Splined joinery as described by Tage Frid. I discovered this method by asking a question in a forum post here on LJ. Thanks to Woodendeavor and Randy-ATX for directing me this way. I purchased three of his books. This description is found on pp. 102ff of Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking, Book 1: Joinery The joint looks like this: The two biggest keys will be to cut the slab correctly and building the jig so the miters line up...
