Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the blog boards comes another episode in the misadventures known as Dynablue’s woodworking projects. I’ve got no pictures this time but will post them on the next one. Mainly I hadn’t blogged because there wasn’t much going on with the table that was of really any interest. Gluing up tabletop blanks, sanding, oiling, gluing parts, having nearly ruinous experiences routing bandsaw marks off the edge of the top, etc.....
The final fitting of the tenon in the mortise. Once I achieve the perfect fit it is time to make the Box joint within the mortise. Note that the mortise pocket is about 1/8th in. deeper than normal as is the tenon, I believe this simple modification goes along way to help strengthen this type of joint. With the aid of a simple jig the box joint is made. Accuracy and close tolerance work is the key to a box joint’s strength, A machinists caliper is probably the easy way to se...

I scoped out a couple more new job prospects and I have enough work to carry me through the next couple of months.

Although, it is beautiful.

The LumberJocks Woodworking Awards Winter 2010 is just a month away. This year we are focusing on just one category. The goal is to highlight the creativity of all of our members (regardless of skill level) through the use of materials that are available to all woodworkers. And here it is: Yin Yang – the dark and the light. Where would one be without the other? Create a project that uses colour (dark and light wood, stains, etc.) to convey how contrasts work together to make the whole....
