Small Secretary With Tambour Door #6: Turned Legs and Base Joinery

02-01-2015 05:50 AM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

I start out with some 12/4 walnut, and cut 4 legs, making sure I use rift sawn lumber. Using a turning that I made for a template, I turn all 4 legs. Then I start on the joinery. This is traditional mortise and tenon joinery throughout, and I show an easy way to get nice tight fitting tenons. The front bottom rail uses a double tenon while the top uses a dovetail to hold everything together. The most unusual thing in this video is that there a shot where you can almost see me smile! Almost…. ...

Making a valet #2: Shaping and fitting the base

04-22-2012 03:45 AM 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...

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

03-18-2012 07:21 AM 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...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Tool Making #1: August 2011 has a couple of tool making related articles

06-07-2011 05:57 PM by WayneC | 6 comments »

Figured I would start a new series related to tool making. I recieved Fine Woodworking yesterday and I noticed that there is an article/video on making and using a simple Scratch stock. This is another one of those items that has been on my build list for a while. Additionally there is an article on how to make a dove tail marker out of brass and some chisels for refining dove tails. The chisels look like they are right up Mads alley. The chisels are made from Hock Marking Knife bl...
