A shop made jig for making face frames with the JessEm 08350 doweling jig

05-25-2017 10:58 PM by Rich | 0 comments »

NOTE: The small face frame shown here is what I keep near the jig for reference. It has notes, etc, written on it and is not intended to represent a finished face frame that would be used on a cabinet. I was just going to post a few pictures of the jig with the JessEm mounted in it, but since it’s not really intuitive how it’s used, I thought a story through pictures would help. This blog entry will basically be photos with captions that briefly describe what’s being s...

Videos by HuckD #17: Dowel Jigs 1 and 2

01-14-2016 06:37 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

I’ve made a couple of dowel jigs to use on a table and bench project that I’m making from 2×12 Southern Yellow Pine. One is useful for joining two pieces of 2 by # lumber and the other is for 4×4 lumber. They’re very inexpensive as they are made from a scrap piece of 1” oak and some “steel spacers” from Lowes. Both have proven to be accurate and easy to use. https://youtu.be/lZRZTXYKiJE

Cookbook Shelf Units #3: Drilling the Dowel Holes

05-26-2014 04:01 AM by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

It went very quickly: That was the very first one and it took a little under a minute. 32 of them took a little under a half hour. Next I had to drill the mating holes in the stiles. I rebuilt the jig from the same parts, marked up the pieces, and started drilling: With some trepidation, I dry fit tw...

Chess pieces and board #3: Finishing Off Lathe

02-12-2014 04:59 PM by Luke | 0 comments »

I usually just finish the chess pieces one at a time. I wanted to be able to get a good smooth finish on them like you do on the lathe but still be able to turn another piece without having to wait for them to dry in between coats.This is what I came up with. I drilled a 1/4” hole into 3/4” dowel and inserted a 1/4” dowel to chuck in the drill. I drilled a 3/4” hole in the holder and used a round file to ream it out so there is enough play to let it spin freely. After ...
