The Splined Mitre Joint

07-08-2010 03:51 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com.........

Dying Maple to a Cherry Finish

09-21-2009 02:38 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

Today I’ll be staining some maple. The customer want a cherry finish. Not a new cherry wood look, but the old antique look with years patina. More like the stuff you’d find on the a showroom floor call “cherry finish”. As most of you know, maple doesn’t absorb stain very good, so to achieve a dark, rich finish is impossible with stain only. Several years ago, I standardize this finish for my customers and make to sample piece with the steps that need to be...

Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

"Carving Acanthus Leaves into, Lathed Fluted Columns"

04-01-2010 03:44 PM by Dennis Zongker | 37 comments »

There are 8 fluted columns to this bedroom set. The columns were turned on our “Legacy” Ornamental Milling Machine, by one of our shop craftsman, Dennis Nygard. I’m carving the 64 acanthus leaf’s by hand with “Pfeil” carving knifes and a small brass mallet. It’s easer to cut the solid cherry by lightly taping with a small mallet. Each leaf takes about 3 hours per leaf. Plus set up time and drawing time, which takes about 2 hours. So, each spindl...

Construction Steps for Kevin Rodel Arts and Craft Chairs #1: Crest Rail Construction

05-03-2013 04:16 AM by kbiniowa | 2 comments »

Quartersawn oak blanks are cut to 14” long and 1 5/8” thick. The upper crest rails are 3” wide and the lower rails are 2 ½” wide. I chose to construct the chair with floating tenons so that I could mill and cut all of the rails to the exact same length. A bench-top mortising machine is used to make the mortises for the upper and lower crest rails. The 3/8” chisel is set exactly parallel to the machine’s fence, then an auxiliary fence is installed and shimmed to the proper angle required. Sto...

Fall Sketchup Challenge Entry - Backwards Bridge

09-11-2007 05:48 AM by ThreeJs | 14 comments »

This bridge fell during a tropical storm a few years ago. Now it servers as a dam, and the river flows over it rather than under. Today cars do not use the bridge to travel the forest road, but that doesn’t stop a few adventurous hikers. The bridge. Wire frame showing the construction of the table The woods depicted in the table design are primarily cherry and maple, with walnut accents.Front View Left View The table.

Built-in bookcases and mantel for fireplace surround in a Tudor Revival

01-28-2010 04:46 AM by Jonathan | 4 comments »

(Please note: I originally posted this earlier today as a forum topic, but then decided to put it in as a blog entry in order to keep all of my entries together. I have also added more information to this posting here.) A year ago Christmas, Santa promised my wife that he’d build built-in bookcases with doors, as well as an adjoining mantel. Well, Santa got busy over the course of that year landscaping most of the yard by laying brick pavers, constructing a couple of raised brick planter b...

Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests #2: Leigh FMT Jig - Part 1

05-16-2007 08:37 AM by David | 11 comments »

Had a great day today working in the shop. I have gotten behind on my schedule for the cherry quilt chests because of some family isuues and increased work load. Today was a warm and sunny day in Portland and it was a pleasure to get out in the shop and make some cherry sawdust! I thought it would be fun to make a small video to share the experience. The original video was too long so I made a two part episode. I figured you guys would be the only ones that could actually sit and watch a rout...

Lumber #2: Shorts, and a T

02-09-2009 06:28 PM by PurpLev | 18 comments »

I’ve got the shorts sorted out, but still don’t have a T ruler… one step at a time. So I took the table saw, shop vac, outfeed roller, and everything else that was in the way out of the garage and started organizing the stack of shorts I got. to the ordinary person passing by, I might have looked like a psycho – cleaning board by board with compressed air to clean the wood – from the wood dust on it (these all came from a manufacturing shop and were covered...
