How to Cut Half-Lap Dovetails with Hand Tools - at Roy Underhill's Woodwright's School

05-15-2014 12:46 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I shot the above detailed Video of master joiner Bill Anderson at Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School in Pittsboro, North Carolina. Bill shows how to cut a half-lap dovetail joint that covers the bottom groove in dovetail boxes. This excellent joint not only looks amazing, but it hides your grooves! BTW, he used mahogany wood on this joint. View the original blog post here. Yes, this video is longer than my typical videos, but i...

Barnwood Countertops #4: Still Breadboarding: The Main Groove

01-05-2012 04:39 AM by spunwood | 3 comments »

I’m so excited, and already very covered in saw dust and wood shavings. Naturally, I tried to just jump in, I mean I’ve used my itty bitty Dremmel lathe before. I made a HUGE mess of a scrap of 2×4.

Fold Down Outfeed Table

10-11-2009 06:22 AM by davidroberts | 9 comments »

I built this fold down outfeed talbe about two years ago and it still going strong. I give the design credit to Jim Becker at http://sawsndust.com/p-outfeed.htm He provides a plan sheet on his website. I did modify his design a bit to suite my needs. This is what I had in mind when I started to think about the project. I just happened upon Jim’s site, and I’m glad I did. He attached the OFT using 45 degree supports attached to the back of his TS, to eliminate those pesk...
