Mortise & Tenon question............need some advise

1961 days ago by Al | 6 comments »

As I embarked on my new addiction of woodworking, I spent the winter months orginizing my small workshop and built some jigs for future use. From plans, I built a pretty cool tenonning jig from PlansNow and put it to the test this past weekend with good results. However, when reviewing the plans, the mortise dimensions are a bit longer than the tenons. Is that a technical reason to help with the fit or am I doing somthing wrong? Since the tenons are already cut, I sure would like to use...

Jellyfish Table #4: Making The Oval

1882 days ago by Blake | 18 comments »

THE OVAL The apron for this table is going to be a bent-laminated oval: I found a great tutorial on how to draw a simple oval on a website called In the Woodshop with Howard Ruttan. Here are some of the simple drawings on his page: And here is mine: MAKING THE FORM So I cut it out with the jigsaw: Then I used the first oval as a router template to cut its clone: (I broke my favorite spiral router bit in the process) The two MDF form ha...

Spray Booth #4: Fan Unit

1827 days ago by VerteramoFurniture7 | 3 comments »

The spray booth fan system is finished. Just like the dry rack I built this out of scrap wood. If you remember the pictures of the spray booth when I started the blog you can see that the right side of the spray booth was away from the wall. That was because I had an old bench there that I was just using to hold junk. After spraying some larger items I realized that I needed more room in the booth. Since the bench was old and just holding junk I decided to take it apart. After taking it...

Tablesaw Workstation #5: Some progress on the drawers and tops

1777 days ago by JohninSD | 2 comments »

Made a little more progress – building the drawers, squaring up the tops. This workstation is already a pleasure to use, as the saw is much more stable and at a much more convenient height. It is also a breeze to move around on the casters. Although it was on casters before, it was so off balance that moving it was almost as difficult as moving it without casters. I squared up the top blanks using a Skilsaw and the second straightedge guide I’d made. I left out the screws on the g...

Iron-on edgebanding, the woodworking equivalent of the microwave meal

1761 days ago by bunkie | 4 comments »

Yes, we’ve all been there, falling for the instant product whose convenience makes it irresistable, but which always delivers less than it promises. I’m currently mid-way through a major project to build a full set of kitchen cabinets. Being a modern Scandinavian-American sort of guy, I like the stark look of clean lines so I went with a European frameless design for the cabinets. I’m using maple plywood (with veneer so thin that it’s more like “essence of map...

Parquet Floor Blocks

1744 days ago by PG_Zac | 3 comments »

Several years ago my step-dad gave me a few dozen 9” X 3” floor blocks when he ripped them out of his home. They are really grungy with decades of polish, varnish, dirt, scratches (patina lol) on the upper side, and solidified bitumen on the underside and sides. During a short lull in my work last night, I decided to put a few through the bandsaw and sander to see what I had in the box. I already had an old blade in the saw for splitting tar poles (and that’s a whole di...
