Finally got started on a box im making for my wifes mother’s ashes, i spent 9 hours on a sunday with spalted maple and my scroll saw and every evening the following week with a set of palm carving chisles and alot of patience, time to break grain on the ziricota, terrifying prospect on account of the price of the lumber, but…. Sooooooo pretty,It was originally my intention to dovetail the corners on it as ive never done them before by hand or otherwise and view this sk...

My Dovetail Jig Buying Journey #1: The first 25 Years.

05-12-2013 03:16 PM by JustJoe | 3 comments »

I spent yesterday playing with my newest joinery jig – the Incra LS-Positioner Super System. Others have already reviewed the Incra and rated it 5-stars (and I agree with them 110%). So instead of a review I thought I’d tell you about the personal journey of 25 years it took to get to the Incra. My dovetail obsession began in the 80’s when I was new to woodworking and hand skills were non-existent. I had plans for a small chest that required half-blind dovetails so I went and b...

Medal Chest #4: More Dovetails...

04-21-2013 08:50 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. Over the past week I have spent all my free time in the shop cutting more dovetails.  I have, I am happy to report, improved my abilities and speed.  The first joint, from the last post, took about 2.5 hours.  The next one on...

It was nice using some harder timber for a change. Tasmanian Blackwood that I found on our river bank after a strong wind in 2009. I also changed from my usual 1:6 angle for softwoods to the preferred 1:8 for hardwoods.Very pleased with the results!!!

[Dovetail Box] Adding chip carving...

03-13-2013 12:07 AM by RaggedKerf | 5 comments »

Flush with my modest progress in the last post, I decided to jazz up the little box some before attaching the bottom (which I have already cut and have waiting for installation). I drew out some lines and squares on the front of the box and made a nice little border on the top and bottom. Here’s the first shot, after I had already completed the top border. It went surprisingly fast. Took about 10 minutes to lay it out and 5 minutes to carve it. Then I drew the pattern for the bot...

Learning Dovetails!

10-05-2012 09:13 PM by Tyler Hicken | 5 comments »

Here is my first attempt at hand cut dovetails. Having never used a handsaw or chisels much I am not disappointed. I need give my chisels a good sharpening, remember to cut in the waste, and use some wood that doesn’t just fall apart on me. Thanks for looking and any advice is welcome!
