Hi everyone, thank you for adding me to the group. I made a video about what I believe to be a new design for a box-joint (or finger-joint) jig and deposited it on YouTube for public viewing. If I’m working things properly, this should be the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dr2mpwzUgEM I hope you find it worthwhile.
Young woodworker here looking for some advice. I’m working on a 34” x 34” frame for squeegeeing film photographs after they have been developed in a darkroom. The design is fairly simple I’m using 5/4 white oak for the frame connected with finger joints and then cutting a dado in the middle of the pieces to allow for a piece of plywood and plexiglass to rest in. This will be inside a school and will be exposed (not submerged) to water for about half of the year. I am making this to replace a ...

Well, I finally worked up the nerve to finish preparing the panels I glued up in the last entry. I was worried that removing any residual twist/cup/bow from the panel glue-ups would result in very thin panels. I discovered that once I ripped the panels in half (one half for each of the door and wall-mounted component of the cabinet) that there was very little flattening to do on the narrower boards. A bit of hand planing on one face, followed by thickness planing (same method as shown in this...
I have always wanted to make Finger/Box Joints on the table saw, But as it is only a little saw, I am unable to fit a Dado Set, or Multiple Blades. Along came LumberJocks. I was reading through the Projects everyone has posted, “Fantastic work” when if came across ADJUSTEBLE INDEX BOX JOINT JIG by Kiefer. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/100105 . Anyway I knew this was the jig to allow me to make my long wanted box Joints. I contacted Kiefer and he very kindly sent me some extra ...

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step…Lao Tzu After writing the initial blog I could hardly wait to get started. Took care of few things around the house, re-read the first chapter a few times, checked my lumber supply, kissed the baby and retreated to my shop for the day. The book opens with some initial information about types of saws and tools a woodworker needs, an overview of the fundamental joinery and some other basic terminology. Great information, ...
