Hi everyone, thank you for adding me to the group. I made a video about what I believe to be a new design for a box-joint (or finger-joint) jig and deposited it on YouTube for public viewing. If I’m working things properly, this should be the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dr2mpwzUgEM I hope you find it worthwhile.
I built a single blade box joint jig as designed by Mario Capellano. Here’s a build video about the clamping fence I made for it. Watch video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVXuM_-mQIs In the video I walk through my fine wood working shop while discussing the projects I have on the go. I’m typically building dining chairs, bar stools or rocking chairs. I also teach a 1 on 1 course where we both build a beautiful rocking chair! Happy new year!
Ok, so the carcass (correct term?) of the file cabinet is all glued up and came out really nice. I have a few touch ups with a sanding block to do. I set off this morning in search of decent 1/2” plywood to make the two drawers. I ended up driving 1/2 an hour into town to Rockler to pickup a sheet of 1/2” Baltic Birch and some 1/4” for the bottoms, along with some satin Arm R Seal. Made a side trip on the way home to Lowes to spend the gift cards that were burning a ho...
Well, I finally worked up the nerve to finish preparing the panels I glued up in the last entry. I was worried that removing any residual twist/cup/bow from the panel glue-ups would result in very thin panels. I discovered that once I ripped the panels in half (one half for each of the door and wall-mounted component of the cabinet) that there was very little flattening to do on the narrower boards. A bit of hand planing on one face, followed by thickness planing (same method as shown in this...
I have always wanted to make Finger/Box Joints on the table saw, But as it is only a little saw, I am unable to fit a Dado Set, or Multiple Blades. Along came LumberJocks. I was reading through the Projects everyone has posted, “Fantastic work” when if came across ADJUSTEBLE INDEX BOX JOINT JIG by Kiefer. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/100105 . Anyway I knew this was the jig to allow me to make my long wanted box Joints. I contacted Kiefer and he very kindly sent me some extra ...
Recently I posted a video covering common woodworking joinery ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqXLYe783qw ) with the help of a few friends. In that video I talked to you all about making finger joints on the table saw and showed you a finger joint jig in the process. Well as I promised, here is the complete build process of that Jig. Table Saw Finger Joint Jig Also a little reminder about the 2nd Annual Whirligig Wars. It is almost here!! The event Runs from July 10 –...

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step…Lao Tzu After writing the initial blog I could hardly wait to get started. Took care of few things around the house, re-read the first chapter a few times, checked my lumber supply, kissed the baby and retreated to my shop for the day. The book opens with some initial information about types of saws and tools a woodworker needs, an overview of the fundamental joinery and some other basic terminology. Great information, ...
Among my hobbies is playing fiddle at acoustic jams. What I have noticed when a bunch of fiddlers gather is that everyone “ohhs” and “ahhs” over the cases. I think this is because all of the fiddles look the same. Sure some have a prettier finish or grain than others, but none really jump out at you. There is always someone with a crocodile vintage case that wins the show. Those are hard to come by, so I thought I would try building a wooden case to try and keep ...
