Building a Dr. White's Chest #4: Face Frame

05-03-2013 12:55 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Complicated Face Frame The Dr. White’s chest is a combination wardrobe/chest of drawers and has a complicated face frame. There are eight mortise and tenon joints, ten dovetail joints, and one half-lap joint in the frame. I cut the dovetail joints with my Leigh dovetail jig. Watch this video to see how I cut the female portion of the face frame dovetail joints. I cut the male portion of the joint using the same jig in the vertical mode and the bit set at the same depth. NOTE: Chip out...

Medal Chest #10: Router Inlay

04-22-2013 12:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. Today’s task was to fit the completed carving into the front panel of the box.  To do this, I decided to mark out the area I needed and use the router my dad donated to the shop last October.  It felt good to use this o...

Vermont Lap desk, part three

Ok front dovetails are done, just need to be planed true. Next is the back corners. Don’t intend to waste a dovetail back there, so. Laid out for a rabbet/dado joint on the back corner of the sides. Sawn to the lines and then a chisel to remove the waste By driving the chisel in the end grain. Pare smooth, and do the other end Next, I use the actual rabbet to mark out a dado in each side. Try as i like, neither rabbet match exactly to the other, joy of hand wor...

Vermont Lap Desk, part two

04-15-2013 10:15 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, hand is healed up, for now. Got out a handsaw and trimmed things to length. Someone asked about making dovetails for the corners? Had to rearrange the bench a bit, first. That yellow Miter Box was moved around to the front of the corner of the bench. Cleaned off an area in front of it, as well. Laid out for a few cuts Had to add some bits of scrap wood to the miter box, to get rid of any flex. C-clamp to hold things in place. Tried a coping saw at first. Hurt ...

Roubo #8: It's Done!

04-14-2013 09:49 PM by bondogaposis | 13 comments »

This is the grand finale. Here I’m doing the final leveling of the top. It was a ton of hand planing and sanding. It’s not perfect but not too bad either. I only sanded to 100 grit, I don’t want a slick surface. Now onto applying finish. I used a simple mixture of 1/3 MS, 1/3 BLO and 1/3 spar varnish. Next up is to apply suede to the vise chop and wagon vise and dogs. I used contact cement. That was the last step and here is the final product. ...

Building a Tablesaw Base Part 1

04-11-2013 12:15 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 13 comments »

Recently I had a need to build a new table saw base for my saw. Rather than just building a simple replacement base, I opted to build one with lots of storage potential. This new base measures 6 feet long by 2 feet wide, which gave me good reason to move over to the new shop building. I haven’t yet finished the new shop set up ( haven’t even started) but this build is a great start giving me lots of options for storage potential… This build is a 2 part project. So be sure to...

Base cabinet for pipe smoking cabinet #1: Putting plans together

04-09-2013 06:14 PM by BobInMidland | 2 comments »

My first project that I have posted is a 24×6x24 pipe smoking cabinet that holds (36) pipes. As shown below: Now its time to start on the base unit. I need storage for my pipe tobacco which is stored in a number of different sized and shaped containers. Mason jars of different sizes, round or square metal tins, gasket-lid jars, etc… That can be accomplished rather easily, I would think, with standard fixed or adjustable shelving. I also need storage for pipe cleaners, li...

Mortise and Tenon Black Walnut Picture Frame

04-08-2013 02:59 AM by molan | 7 comments »

I had been wanting to learn how to do Mortise and tenon joinery for a while now, but for one reason or another just hadn’t found the time. When my wife said she wanted a custom picture frame for a Disney puzzle she was building that she wanted to put in our daughters room I jumped at the chance. I came up with a simple but unique idea for a black walnut picture frame that was built using mortise and tenon joints instead of more traditional miter joints. I used 4/4 black walnut for the fram...

Lamps for the living room #2: Coming together

04-08-2013 01:42 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

It has been a bit of a bother to find time for woodworking. I found some today and managed to put in a few hours. Today was about fitting the sides of the lamps to the side edges. Although I got all the I made progress on both lamps but I only got one assembled up to this point. I am going very slow on this so I can enjoy what I’m making. For starters, I added one coat of tung oil before starting the glue up. The glue joints don’t have any tung oil on them so thery are good...
