On the Workbench #2: Jig for Batch Cutting Mortises

10-16-2014 06:49 AM by ontheworkbench | 0 comments »

In the process of building a crib, I ended up needed an efficient way to cut 76 perfectly aligned mortises for vertical slats. I designed the slats to be 1/2” thick and then rounded over both edges of the slat witha 1/4” round over bit to create the shape of the slat. Then using a 1/2” upsprial router bit and homemade jig I was able cut 1/2” wide mortise to fit the 1/2 thick slats and then the rounded over slat edges would fit perfectly into the rounded ends of these ...

Loose Tenon Jig

10-14-2014 08:37 PM by Mauricio | 9 comments »

I recently made a stone top table with Mortise and Tenon Joinery. I was thinking of making more of these tables, also ~3×3” legs with 1.5” thick aprons would make some pretty sweet work tables out of construction grade pine. Normally I would simply use a router and edge guide to make the mortise, then cut the tenons with a combination of hand tools (to cut shoulders) and bandsaw for the cheeks, then cleaned up with a router plane. However since I want to make multiple tables I figu...

Jig made of Legos for making clamp rack

10-11-2014 04:15 PM by keith204 | 4 comments »

I woke up early this morning with an idea of using Legos to quickly build an incremental table saw jig. This jig helped me quickly produce a new clamp rack that incorporates my new parallel clamps. The 1×8 line pieces acted as stop blocks for crosscutting dadoes. (in the future, I’ll use 2×8 pieces to reduce play). When one cut was complete, I removed that line, scooted the board to the next line, and cut another. For my parallel clamps, a line every 6 circles was perfec...

Glue-up Blocks for Panels

09-28-2014 01:49 PM by Ken90712 | 10 comments »

I recieved a email from Woodpeckers tool sale for some Glue-up Panel Blocks. I thought thats a cool idea and a quick way to keep boards flat while gluing them up. While the price seemed fair, I have a close friend thats has a machine shop and we always like hanging out and working together. He has alot of materaial stocked up over the years as well. So this is what we came up with. Size is 7” x 3” x 1 1/2” Aluminum. We machined them on the Brigeport...

Wegner inspired dining chair #4: Much more prototyping

09-02-2014 10:16 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 10 comments »

Summer is over and work, my business and life in gerneral have taken almost all my time. And my chair project have slowed down considerable. But in shorter periods i have had time in the workshop and done as much as possible. This is a compilation of 6 weeks: Last time we left about here: This looked cool but i was not totally satisfied. Things i wanted to improve was:- The back rest. It is too low and somehow just not´right´ - The general feel of the chair. Is it a little too static?-...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #4: Thinking through the Full Blind Miter Jig

07-27-2014 11:11 PM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

For the waterfall leg, I’m using Full Blind Multiple Splined joinery as described by Tage Frid. I discovered this method by asking a question in a forum post here on LJ. Thanks to Woodendeavor and Randy-ATX for directing me this way. I purchased three of his books. This description is found on pp. 102ff of Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking, Book 1: Joinery The joint looks like this: The two biggest keys will be to cut the slab correctly and building the jig so the miters line up...

Cookbook Shelf Units #3: Drilling the Dowel Holes

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

They’re done. All 256 of them. I rethought and then reconfigured the jig a bit so I could keep the same reference surface when drilling both ends of the “rungs”. 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...
