Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #9: The Assembly/Outfeed Table

131 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

I’ve been using the assembly table in the shop for a little while now. I made the murphy bed and a couple other items and it came in handy. I like it.Please realize that my idea of an outfeed table as a combo assembly/outfeed table is a preference of mine and not necessarily of others. I downgraded from a woodworking bench with vices and such to this after I found that I needed outfeed and assembly capabilities more than a workbench. I use a combination of hand and power tools. I use po...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #4: Face Frame

486 days ago by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Complicated Face Frame The Dr. White’s chest is a combination wardrobe/chest of drawers and has a complicated face frame. There are eight mortise and tenon joints, ten dovetail joints, and one half-lap joint in the frame. I cut the dovetail joints with my Leigh dovetail jig. Watch this video to see how I cut the female portion of the face frame dovetail joints. I cut the male portion of the joint using the same jig in the vertical mode and the bit set at the same depth. NOTE: Chip out...

Hand tool tips and tricks #8: Waste Removal on a Through Mortise.

544 days ago by RGtools | 14 comments »

This one is almost stupid, but it happens to still be helpful. On a through mortise you can center your work on a dog hole and some of the random chips will fall through it rather than get jammed into the bottom, where you will have to extricate them later. And Now…a bonus tip!!! When test fitting a mortise and tenon joint take care not to snag anything important… You have been warned and so have I. Cheers, Ryan

Roubo-ish Workbench #6: draw-BORING is anything but

568 days ago by John | 9 comments »

my first adventure into the wonderful world of DRAWBORING was a great experience. it was not difficult and the results are amazing. drawboring is pegging a tenon into a mortise with the peg-hole in the tenon shifted slightly toward the shoulder causing the peg to tighten up the joint I used red oak 1/2” dowels from lowes. I took my time going through all their stock to choose the straightest grain dowels. the ideal would be to make my own from riven white oak, but the red oak work...

Do you own a Harbor Frieght 7" rabbeting jointer? I Need some help?

581 days ago by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

I purchased the Harbor Frieght 7” Rabbeting jointer as I thought it would be a good choice for a beginner to practice and make mistakes. Many things have blocked my path to assemling it. It’s got to be 7 years since I bought it. This winter I had finished many maintenance projects and commited myself to assembly of my workshop tools. I own and have assembled the HF Lathe with no difficulty. The jointer? !!! The manual I have is dated 2003. The assembly steps??? The ...

632 days ago by tyskkvinna | 1 comment »

We got a fantastic Jet lathe in the workshop recently and decided to make a video of the assembly process. It’s pretty straightforward, but could be handy for reference before you try to put yours together. :)

My First Workbench #19: Day 19: Assembling the base!

731 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

To see the version with pictures, please click here. Finally, the day I’ve been working towards for the last three weeks or so has arrived! I was able to successfully glue up the base and insert the oak pegs. It is no longer a collection of parts and sawdust…it is now a collection of glued together parts and sawdust! I started by making 4” pegs out of the 3 ft long oak dowels that I had purchased with the initial lumber investment. I haven’t really worked with...

Mission Style Bed #4: Knockdown Fasteners, Assembly, Transport

847 days ago by Fraser Gandy | 1 comment »

So, this past while I’ve been busy with finishing up school, packing to get ready to move, and starting my work term/summer job at Added Touch Stairs and Floors. The final step and the work I did on the last day at school, was milling the lumber for the side rails, and mounting the hardware. My teachers were exclaiming “Are we ever gonna get to see this thing put together! C’mon c’mon!”. Sure enough about an hour later I was getting help putting it together, my f...
