Workbench #11: Tail Vise Has Begun

1006 days ago by CartersWhittling | 10 comments »

Hello. Since my 7th workbench post I got the shoulder vise done and started work on the tailvise. This is a picture of the vise from underneath. I have the bench top upside down while I am working on the tailvise. I first tapped the nut in the endcap for the vise. If you look at blog post #10 you can see me making the nut for the tail vise at the end of the video. You can see the 1 inch deep notch cut above the nut which allows for the covering of the tailvise to slide over. A...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #2: Cutting the side joints

1008 days ago by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

First step of a double dovetail is to cut a through dovetail on each side piece and then attach a trim piece. This blog entry will cover that process. So starting with the end pieces and a 6” piece of trim stock (same width as the side piece, thickness doesn’t matter). Install the two template strips into the positioning system (1 dovetail strip and 1 double dovetail strip). The dovetail strip consists of an A side which lets you cut pins at 7/8” intervals and ...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #1: Prep Work - creating the laminated stock

1010 days ago by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

I have gotten a few questions (actually 3) from folk about to how create the Incra Double Dovetails Joints such as the one in this project: I will not be making a box in this blog. But a really good friend saw this box and asked if I could make a 14” x 19” serving tray in the same style. Maureen has been a huge help to my wife and I so I was happy to get a chance to make something for her. Obviously, first place to start is to get an Incra Jig System. I have the old 1...

LJ’s, Last week I spend some time on some new joints. I want to build a build with dovetails but not the standard kind. What kind of joint do you like the most ? Thanks

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #13: Hey, Now That Almost Looks Like a Workbench.

1161 days ago by Eric | 4 comments »

Today I lopped off the extra 1” or so from the tops of the leg tenons (are those called horns?), which was harder than I expected. Then I chopped the dovetails on the outer leg tenons, which was easier than I expected. In case you’re wondering, I started the cut with my dozuki and then when the back of the saw started hitting the top of the tenon, I switched to the rip side of my ryoba. Piece of cake, quite honestly. I’m going to glue up the last four boards (two on e...

Another Woodworking Class = More Dovetails

1166 days ago by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

Well, it has been quite a while sense I posted, Christmas has come and gone as well as the whole winter. I was in the ranks of the unemployed for about 4 1/2 months at the end of last year, and spent a fair amount of that time taking care of my mother who diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in August. She ended her fight on April 14th, rest in peace mom. For my birthday my let me sign up for another woodworking class. This one was at McLaughlin Woods, which is I found is only about 3 miles...

1199 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 22 comments »

Okay, if mitered dovetails are the objective and three tries is what it takes to make it happen, then here is number two… In pictures: First, set gauge: Mark tailboard w/ miter: Mark, knifeline and cut mitered edge: Using coping saw to clear the pin ‘waste’ between the tails: All Clean! Now for the challenge. Hard to scribe cutlines on the pinboard because of the miter cut: Cutting the pin board miters: Clearing pin was...

Dovetail Journey

1207 days ago by RLindberry | 8 comments »

Well, due to a posting about first dovetails by mikeswoodshop, I decided to (somewhat) chronicle my journey with hand cut dovetails over the last year or so. My first attempts were far worse than anything here, but have been thrown away, so I don’t have pictures. I think the most heinous ones went into the wood stove. I figured that if I could get some heat out of them, they would at least be good for something. It wasn’t until my fifth or sixth joint that it occurred to me ...
