Hand-cut dovetails #1: Graduation day: Hand-cut dovetails 101

2051 days ago by Al Navas | 8 comments »

From my blog: I started my hand-cut dovetail journey this past September. In this post I share my graduation from Hand-Cut Dovetails-101. What a terrific day! As I have mentioned in those previous posts , I have been hand-cutting dovetails every chance I get. I prepared sycamore stock so that it would be at the ready when I have a little (or a lot…) of time to practice. Today I cut dovetails in three little practice boxes, with minimal paring on the pins. Oh – I almost forgo...

Making a valet #2: Shaping and fitting the base

823 days ago by Chelios | 2 comments »

The mortises were done so the next step was to shape the base. I cut the outline of the curves first with a saw then shaped with the spokeshave. It is so nice on endgraing when it is sharp. The end result is very smooth and the shavings chocolate shavings from a cake. It feels great when it is properly set up, it makes quick work of the curves, even on end grain Then I cleaned the parts a bit with the number 6. Does a great job. Next I cut the notches for the 2 c...

Hand Tool Ramblings #3: The Anarchists Bug Out Box

212 days ago by rustythebailiff | 4 comments »

Living here in sunny FLA, we don’t have to worry about ice and snow. But, we do get the occasional tornado. And hurricanes are not unheard of. So, as my hand tool collection has grown over the years, it suddenly occurred to me that if I had to flee from impending natural disaster, it would take me a good hour to gather up my precious hand tools. Now, not to downplay the importance of my power tools, but they are easier to replace than some of my vintage hand tools. So, after watc...

Headed to Class #2: Cutting dovetails

1570 days ago by MickeyD | 4 comments »

I have been busy practicing dovetails. If there is a way to do it wrong I have done it, but last night I was able to make several “right”. I have developed “tennis elbow” with all the hammering with the mallet. It will be a good story to tell the doctor when I get home. We just bought a lathe and Kindlingmaker is having fun making lots of shavings, but I won’t touch it until I get back from class. The poplar practice table is put together and looks very presentab...

mahogony/ironwood writing desk #1: my writing desk

1787 days ago by Jeremy Hill | 12 comments »

Can I put pics in the blog? I’d like to share my project with you guys, but it would be better if you can see it. Let me know please.We were given an overflowing truckload of scrap hardwood a fellow woodworker who was moving to south america. A lot of it was t and g floor cut offs and most of the ironwood planks were stained half way down the length and most all of it was stock rejected due to imperfections. So I thought it was a great opportunity to hone my joinery skills and do someth...

“The English Plane” -by Brian Meeks In a tiny shop north of London townAt a maple bench stood young man proud.Off cobble stone road sat a flower girlA comb in her hair from mother of pearl He’d returned from the war a scar on his faceHe’d flown a camel; they’d called him an Ace.At the museum she’d once spent a dayThe artist she saw was named Claude Monet On way to his shop, each day he passed byHe oft thought of how, he might catch her eyeShe noticed his walk and his hat pulle...

Twins! #5: I've done a lot. With Photos!

858 days ago by Andy123 | 8 comments »

Well… Where to start? Well I haven’t posted at all about the crib, because this is the first time I could feel like I could. There was a lot of complications with the pregnancy. My wife had to have enutero surgery on her placenta before the girls were born. And they were born pretty early. The girls are still in the NICU, but doing great! The doctors could not be happier about their progress. Their names are Emma and Lily. On my last blog, I finished the the tenons. Then I mov...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #2: sharpening markers

344 days ago by Tugboater78 | 1 comment »

Was work in in shop today when I get a call from my girlfriend. Her 3yr old boy was in daycare with a fever and an apparent massive headache. She couldn’t find anyone else to get him and asked if I could. So shop time got cut out, no real biggie, I brought the shop to the coffee table while we watched Wall-E. Been meaning to make some of these for consistent bevels on my planes and Chisels , but kept putting it off. I use a cheap sharpening guide just like I seen the Schwarz. For chi...

Book Bench #1: The Project & The Legs (profiles)

1345 days ago by spunwood | 4 comments »

The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...
