Loose Tenon Jig

10-14-2014 08:37 PM by Mauricio | 9 comments »

I recently made a stone top table with Mortise and Tenon Joinery. I was thinking of making more of these tables, also ~3×3” legs with 1.5” thick aprons would make some pretty sweet work tables out of construction grade pine. Normally I would simply use a router and edge guide to make the mortise, then cut the tenons with a combination of hand tools (to cut shoulders) and bandsaw for the cheeks, then cleaned up with a router plane. However since I want to make multiple tables I figu...

Bathroom Vanity Commision #4: Bottom shelf, medicine cabinet, and spraying the interior

03-24-2014 08:19 PM by emetric | 1 comment »

As I have mentioned in an earlier post, it was decided early on that we would make the bottom shelf slatted instead of flat plywood. This actually turned out to be a little more challenging that I had hoped. It ended up with 12 slats, originally 14 but I dropped the 2 outer slats because I felt the joinery would be too busy, all connected with dominos to the front and rear rails. I also went ahead and pre-finished this shelf in anticipation of access issues while spraying. This piec...

Throw away your portable tool cases

01-07-2013 08:16 AM by Marty Backe | 11 comments »

Many of the portable power tools that I purchase come in a tool case. The tool manufacturers presume that I’ll be taking the tools on the road. A reasonable assumption for many. But my tools are used near 100 percent in my workshop. Sometimes they venture into my house, but I don’t need the case for those instances. In this video I offer a reason for throwing the tool cases away and creating custom workshop storage to better utilize the prize (i.e., limited) shop space....

A Guitar for Daniel #3: Just got real

12-13-2012 06:17 AM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

On the router table, cleaned up the face of the peghead and finished the rest of the truss rod routing, and drilled the hole through the neck for the electronics (totally stoked, I drilled the diagonal by hand and managed to hit with my ¼” pilot hole dead on, then worked up to ½” total). Then with a deep breath and a few carefully placed Dominos, glued the sucker up. Daniel is way stoked.

In the wood shop today #11: Using a Festool Domino XL 700

09-26-2012 12:59 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

We’re using a Festool Domino DF700EQ to help in the glue up of a large table top, for the local fire hall. We decided to add the floating tenons to help keep these large pieces of 2’’ oak and cherry flat during glue up. Hope you enjoy and as always thanks for having a look.

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #28: Making Window Sashes with Loose Tenons (dominos) 1

01-08-2012 07:09 PM by gizmodyne | 4 comments »

Have not been here much in the last year or so. I got a new position at work which has taken up more time in a good way. I have actually built a bunch more of the kitchen cabinets which I will post later. I am finally building some removable sliding windows for the porch. I put some fixed windows in a few years ago, but it was long enough that I completely forgot how to do the job smoothly. So I am going to document it this time. In this blog: How to make the frames. Here are two of the...

Making 'Floor Dominoes'

09-17-2010 07:13 PM by Dave Owen | 9 comments »

After posting my “Floor Dominoes” project, several readers expressed interest in how the dominoes were made. I wrote the following article and, with minor differences, it has now been posted on both Lumberjocks and on Rockler Woodworking’s “Buzz Saw” site...Set size: Mine is a double-nine rather than a double-six set, even though more than twice the work was involved. The additional work is because a double-six set has only 28 pieces and 168 pips, whereas a do...

Storm Door Inserts

06-23-2010 12:28 AM by Troy | 7 comments »

Several days ago, I was asked to rebuild a few storm door inserts destroyed by some overzealous dogs.  Dogs – 1 || Door Insert – 0  I hesitated a bit because it seemed liked a boring production item, but I am not one to usually turn down a woodworking project.  No better softwood  So I got some high-grade Douglass Fir and went to work replicating the screened versions. The mangled model was made with bridal joints in each corner and sep...

Craftsman Bungalow Restoration #27: 165 Mortises (Domino-ed Cabinet Boxes)

01-19-2010 07:20 AM by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

Last time I built cabinets, I used my biscuit joiner. I thought about going with it again, but since I have a Domino I said what the hey: Go for it.Solid panel waiting for mortisesThe cabinets have 5 identical rails: Two at the top for attaching the counters, one to act a a face frame nailer, and two at the back for securing to the wall during installation. There is also a bottom shelf. I start by marking the approximate locations of the rails so that I put them in the right place. The si...

Fold Down Train Layout #1: Prototype/Interim around the tree (with pix)

12-14-2009 06:52 PM by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

Just to give the payoff early, here’s a video, no sound, skip to the last third if you want to see the fold-up action: I like model railroads. When I was a kid, my dad worked with a guy named Bill Kennedy who had the Ramapo Valley Railroad in his basement. It was HO scale, super highly detailed, snaked through several rooms, had walk-around throttles, and was featured in a magazine or two.. Years later I picked up an N scale train to run around the Christmas three, picked up a copy...
