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

106 days ago 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...

Super Simple Shoji Frame #1: Video 1

552 days ago by JSB | 1 comment »

This turned out to be a super simple Shoji frame. Typically a shoji frame will have several divisions. The person this is going to is into crochet crafts. It will be used as a creative template of sorts. I will show how to make accurate half lap joints both on the ends of the workpiece as well as in the middle and also how to cut a precise mortise for a hinge. 24 half lap joints total. Super simple, super strong, super easy. This will be a 3 part series. Hope you enjoy! Video 2 is ready. C...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #1: My Interpretation of Thos. Moser's Design

486 days ago by DustyMark | 8 comments »

What to Expect This blog series will highlight some of the techniques I use in solid wood case construction. My previous blog, about building the New Gloucester rocker, covered nearly every step in photographs with an occasional video. This blog will not detail every step along the way, but will rather explore key details of case construction using primarily videos. The videos are “rough takes” since I’m not going to spend the extra time to edit them. In those situati...

vine trellis for neighbors

46 days ago by harum | 2 comments »

A few days ago, our neighbors asked to make a simple trellis for their passion flower vine which had collapsed under its weight. I’ve come up with what I think would fit their backyard. It is 6’6” tall, 38” wide. Today I finished cutting the parts with notches and dados for joinery and started gluing them with polyurethane glue. I want to use joinery and glue to avoid a lot of screws as fasteners because the lattice is made of thin stock to keep the whole thing ligh...

Poplar shoe rack #5: The final stages

39 days ago by JSOvens | 4 comments »

Well, it’s been a bit of a drawn out project, more so than I originally thought it would be. I began this project with much enthusiasm, quickly got all the parts milled and most of the joinery cut, but then BAM! Ph. D. thesis writing time! No, I am not done writing yet, but I’m in the final stages and on track to finish and have it submitted some time in August. I was able to finish this shoe rack build mostly because whenever I got frustrated or tired of writing I would spend ...

Testing: Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint

877 days ago by Joe Lyddon | 7 comments »

Testing: Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint I cut a piece of good hardwood scrap to about 3/4” x 4” x 11” I measured 5” from one end & marked with knife. I measured 10” from same end & marked with knife. Knife-cut lines all the way around the board at each 5” point. Labeled things to make it look nice. I had cutoffs from the same piece of hardwood for testing the cuts. ============================================= Proceeded t...

Poplar shoe rack #3: Cutting the joinery

163 days ago by JSOvens | 6 comments »

Welcome back everyone! It is now time to begin the exciting part of the project. In the first post of this series, I showed my plan for this project, which contains a total of 82 half-lap joints. I don’t have a dado stack at this time (and I am not so sure I would want to put one on my current saw), and my router table is too small to realistically cut the half-laps on the larger pieces. So what I have decided to do is to ‘gang’ several like pieces together and cut the half-...
