Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here This phase of the project took on a different pace. it was all hand tools oriented, and I was able to work on it at nights and at quick sessions as there was little setup involved, and not a whole lot of noise. To start. I took my old drill press table that was just hanging around the shop useless after I upgraded it and screwed a straight piece of cherry left over from my milling process to act ...
Episode 75 Clamps from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I talk about clamps. There are a few other types of clamps I didn’t mention and thats just because I don’t use them. Pipe and Aluminum bar clamps are the 2 main types of clamps I didn’t talk about. There basically the same thing the only difference is the type of material the bar is made of. Pipe clamps are used mostly for gluing up panels.Parallel bar clamps work much better than pipe clamps because you have mo...
Once the banding segments are organized we can now focus on creating the interior design. We’ll need a few outer rippings that will sandwich the segments together and keep them in alignment. You’ll notice in the picture that the outer hardwoods are walnut and maple glued together. In this case the walnut will be on the inside with the maple on the outside. The reason for this is to create contrasting colors within the banding and also with the mahogany picture frames that will...

Episode 73 Panels from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I go through how to make a panel. I cut the panels down to size at the router table but there are a lot of other ways to do it. The 4 panels I made are for a curved top chest.
OK we are out of the clamps with our project and we level the legs. Next we do a little more finish sanding and spray our finish. *Note one thing I forgot on the video I buy adhesive backed felt and put on the bottom of the feet to ad that “Pro” touch to it. Enjoy and if any would not mind doing me favor, how about leaving some reviews on iTunes for me. Thanks In Advance, Huck
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.........

We could use a chop saw or a mitre saw for our joinery. We could use a fine handsa...
