Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #12: Dovetail Saga - Dovetail Number Three

03-13-2015 01:10 AM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

Tails of dovetail number three. Middle is humped up, but at least it’s not cut past the mark like the ends are. Starting to look sloppy. I’m not sure if I was getting tired or what here. Good picture though – the camera decided to focus on the boxes and stuff in the background. Dovetail number three I think – Whoa! Little bit of a gap there dude! And the view from the end – Wow, too much space in between the parts. I know what happened though. The first ...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #11: Dovetail Saga - Dovetail Number Two

03-13-2015 01:01 AM by ruddhess | 4 comments »

Went a little past the mark on the tails on this one. Yikes! Looks a little bit jagged on the back side – that’s the side it’s more difficult to keep an eye on. Uh oh! Big mistake – back to the lumber yard to fetch more wood to fix this mistake. Just a teeny bit discouraging.

Pine Toy Chest #1: Design and Milling the Wood

02-26-2015 05:15 AM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

I am making a Toy Chest for my daughter Candace. Well, it is actually for her two girls Lola and LuLu. This project has been an adventure. This toy chest I am making it after a blanket chest that was featured on a cover of Fine Woodworking. I have modified the magazine’s plan somewhat; for instance I am going to add a base to my chest. Since this will be a toy chest I am also looking to purchase a nice hinge that will make the lid safe for small children’s use. On my lumbe...

A Strategy for Woodworking #37: The Right Saw for the Job

12-01-2014 04:30 PM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

Choose your tools wisely for the job. For a plumber, the sawz-all is king because demo can be fast and messy. Not so much for dovetailing. That requires a different touch. I have many tools at hand. Which one I grab depends upon many factors. When I cut dovetails, how picky do I want to be? How do I want the joints to look? How much noise and dust can I stand that day? And for me most of all, how late is the project? I have many options to use from my Japanese dozuki to my Lie-Nielsen back...

Dye and Dovetails

11-13-2014 02:23 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

This was a fun experimental project. I attempted to use a clothing dye as a stain to see what different colors I could create while still being able to see the grain pattern. I also laminated plywood pieces together to see what effect could be made with the different layers being visible. Check out the video to see the end results!
