Making and fitting drawers. See it finished.
I need four sides of skirting for dovetailing in a way opposite the main body of the chest. As in, tails are cut into the face board of the main chest, but will get cut into the side boards of the skirt, to counteract each other and increase overall stability. I’m only able to get the bottom skirting entirely from my blue board: - Two long boards, front and back- Two short sides I want the blue and/or weathered edges to be ‘up,’ and cut edge down on these boards, a...
jointing 6’ long 4×4s on a little benchtop jointer is part crazy and part gymnastics, cursing helps, but patience helps more. as tough as trueing the reference face is, squaring the second face is the real challenge. at times nearly all the weight was hanging off the end with all fingertip strength focused on keeping the ref face on the fence. but my little cast iron craftsman continues to impress. felt like i was channeling Rob Cosman as i checked each piece with winding stick...
having just finished reading the Schwarz’s Workbench design book before heading back into my shop to finish my daughter’s Shaker style desk, I am seriously Jonesing for a real bench. rather than go all-out Ruobo for my first real bench, I’m thinking of making a Moxon-ish dovetailing bench. it also needs to be a bench for sharpening with my new Brian Burns double bevel system ( http://www.lessonsinlutherie.com/doublebevelsharpeninghirez.html ). I’m thinkin...
Every project’s layout phase, for me, is like spring training – what happened last season is a foundation to build upon; all things are possible when starting fresh. And it’s also an opportunity to set goals that, upon further review, seem almost unattainable. I find myself in that situation right now on something in the shop that’s been underway for a couple weeks. One specific joinery element I’ve decided to incorporate into the build is the mitered dovetail...
I’m finally back to producing these videos. I have been sitting on these clips for about a month now and was finally able to edit this together. Time to work on the period details of the table and we start to see it take shape. Enjoy the show!
This is the latest video from the series Woodworking in America, in Berea, KY. From my blog: Frank Klausz returns in this episode on Advanced Dovetailing, to share how he makes half-blind and mitered dovetails. He shares tips that are crucial to get excellent joint fit with a minimum set of tools. I filmed this during his wonderful session, at the Woodworking in America hand tool conference in Berea, KY. The session opened with Klausz talking about his background, and his search in ...
With the table carcase complete it was time to build and dovetail the drawer. I have a fairly long and detailed post on my blog with the process that I used to do this. Please take a look and let me know your thoughts. Thanks for reading!
