Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #3: First Handcut Dovetails

01-08-2010 07:55 AM by Jimi_C | 11 comments »

After posting my review of the Grizzly T10010 wet grinder, having a set of nice, hair-shaving sharp chisels (and a freshly shaved hand…), I decided to put them to use. I grabbed some scraps out of my wood bin and started marking out some dovetails. I’ve laid them out several times, and gotten them to the point where the majority of the material was removed from the joint, but I never had a sharp enough chisel to pare them down – I was basically butchering the wood… ...

Ukulele No. 1 #2: some progress at home

03-23-2013 01:03 AM by Justin M Schmidt | 0 comments »

When I started this class I knew right away I would have to do a lot of work at home to keep up. Not having a bunch of essential tools slowed me down, but I’m finally getting some work done between classes. I swear there’s a ukulele somewhere in that pile of stuff! Last night I planed the sides down from about 4mm to 2mm. Pretty sloppy, but I’m learning. That was fun… there really is pure joy in a nice plane. (My Wood River V3 #5 is treating me well.) ...

Hand cut Dove Tails, take 2

03-05-2012 06:38 PM by Chuck | 6 comments »

While everyone else at my house was napping yesterday I gave hand cut dove tails another try. This was my 2nd attempt. They aren’t the good, but they aren’t the worse I’ve seen. http://woodchucksworkshop.blogspot.com/2012/03/hand-cut-dove-tails-take-2.html

wood tick tools #2: In the begining

01-07-2014 12:45 AM by woodtickgreg | 4 comments »

This is one of the very first carbide insert tools I ever made. I had purchased a square rougher to try out and I was immediately sold on the concept. The thing that I like about the carbide insert tools was I did not have to concentrate on riding the bevel. Also no catches or very minimal catches, just turn, no trips to the grinder to sharpen, and the tool rest takes all the beating when roughing. I liked the tool so much for roughing that I said hey, I can make tools like these and so the ...

02-02-2008 04:15 AM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

Well, after a brief diversion with the new (old) smoothing plane, I have been back to work on the Queen Anne Side Table. This post covers dovetailing the top rail above the drawer and cutting the Queen Anne style scroll work on the aprons. Next up will be the glue up and drawer runner assembly. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!

My First Workbench #13: Day 13: Dry fit the base!

08-25-2012 01:54 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

As usual, for the pictures, click here. Today was very exciting! I decided to finish the base joinery prep once and for all and powered through the last 3 tenons and mortises. I wrapped up with a dry run of the base and I am very happy with the results (though there are a few minor glitches to take care of tomorrow…more on that below). To begin with, I was not at all thrilled with continuing the tenon cutting. I have been using a makeshift saw horse (2 pieces of offcuts from t...

Southwest end tables #7: Finishing the Border

09-25-2013 01:14 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, I added all of my little U-Turns to the top and here is where I start this Blog. If you have any disparities in your measurements, Here is where they make an appearance. I have to add a 4 inch long piece of Curly Maple here but it’s wider than one inch because the rest of my strips were less than one inch wide. I cut a piece to length then I used a series of stopblocks and clamps to shave it to the exact width. Easy Glue up around all four corners. Once I got back to...
