Cherry Refreshment Table #2: Drawer and Hardware

186 days ago by pintodeluxe | 4 comments »

This is where we left things last time…-----I built the small single drawer with half blind dovetails at all four corners. -----I installed a 9” full extension undermount drawer slide. I use a hardwood shim between the drawer bottom and the slide. I plane the shim to fine tune the fit of the drawer in its opening. -----Drawer installed.-----The drawer bottom is aromatic cedar.-----Here you can see the blocking that was added to receive the drawer slide, and the figure 8 fasten...

Cherry Refreshment Table #1: Breadboard Ends and Tusk Tenons

207 days ago by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

Here is my cherry refreshment table which will feature a single drawer and breadboard ends.-----I started by making breadboard mortises at the router table. The mortises are 1-1/4” deep and cut in multiple shallow passes. -----I used a 1/4” spiral bit to center a 3/8” groove in the breadboard ends. I made an initial pass in the standard right to left direction. Then I flipped the board end for end and made a pass from left to right to avoid a climb cut.-----I set up my t...

Dutch Tool Chest #3: The Lid, Handles, and Casters

506 days ago by Brandon | 20 comments »

I wanted to make the lid a breadboard to keep it nice and flat. I started with two boards of eastern white pine boards which I glued together, then added a stub tenons on each side. And here are the end pieces with the mortises already in place. I cut the mortises on my TS. Glued together: I planed the whole thing flat then squared it up. To square it up, I planed down the protruding breadboard end pieces, then ran the opposite side through the TS. I drilled a 3/8&...

Twin Tenon Arts and Crafts Dining Table #3: Breadboard Ends

730 days ago by pintodeluxe | 0 comments »

Cutting the tenon with a router and edge guide jig. This is the setup described by Gregory Paolini. It works well, the only trouble is you have to flip the table several times while sneaking up on the final depth of cut. I recommend cutting only the first pass, then flip and check the fit. Cutting all the way to the shoulder will make it difficult to support the router. The jig is clamped in place, and stays put while you flip the top. Double sided jig helps align the shoulders of t...

Barnwood Countertops #3: Dimensions & The Tongue

972 days ago by spunwood | 1 comment »

DIMENSIONS Okay, so how big should the battons (breadboards) be?How big should the tongue, the tenons….? Well, I am not sure if there is a hard and fast rule. I went with a mixture of necessity, imitation, and inspiration: 1. I calculated the length of each coutertop section which I wanted to end up with, including space at the wall for movement. 2. I calculated how much each breadboard (-loss of tenons) would add to what I already had. 3. Then I made a decision on th...

Barnwood Countertops #2: Breadboards: Resources

973 days ago by spunwood | 1 comment »

I decided a while back to add breadboard ends to each of the four sections. These will add beauty and stability to the countertops. What will follow in my blog is almost nothing original. It is mainly just a walk along. Here are my main resources which I highly reccomend. Having never done this before, I got some great information from: -our own GaryLhttp://lumberjocks.com/Maggiepic -an excellent how to video on making the breadboard ends from Popular Woodworkinghttp://www...

Barnwood Countertops #1: Introduction

973 days ago by spunwood | 2 comments »

At the beginning of August, with the discovery of mold in my kitchen, I began building new countertops. The wood for this work all came from my inlaws barnwood. After getting the countertops glued up, I was interupted by life (teaching, UPS, kids, divorce, and more). Where I left off, I had just gotten the sections back from a local cabinetshop where it was run through a drum sander….. Well, FOUR MONTHS LATER, what a thrill to get back into the shop three days ago. I am tryi...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #17: Table Top Post Mortem

1589 days ago by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

We’ve been using the new top on top of our old table until I can finish the base. Over the last few months, the top has warped a bit, and was obviously out of alignment with the breadboard ends. While watching an old New Yankee Workshop online, I realized one of the things I did to cause this. I selected the boards for their aesthetic value, trying to match the grain to make it look like one solid piece of wood 38” wide. I neglected to alternate the boards’ growth rings,...

Dovetail Bible Box #6: It's A Wrap

1637 days ago by OutPutter | 3 comments »

Well, it’s been over three weeks since I put the finish on my box and contemplated putting on the hinges. Since then several things have happened. The weather was cold in Houston for a while and I moved the box inside the house for a while. Over that time, I noticed the bottom had bowed slightly and two small cracks formed in one end. Even though my sliding dovetail construction allowed the sides to move as the bottom contracted and expanded, it didn’t prevent the bottom from ...
