Marc Adams School of Woodworking 2018 Review

11-09-2018 07:56 PM by Matt887 | 2 comments »

My inaugural year of attending classes at The Marc Adams School of Woodworking was an experience like none other. I was unsure what to expect as I found the school after a recommendation from the guys at the Against The Grain podcast not from a trusted friend or colleague. So when I arrived in April for Zane Powell’s Basic Cabinet Making course I was a bit apprehensive. As I entered the building I was surprised to find 20 high quality benches in the classroom and a machine room full of top of...

From wood butchery to wood workery #4: My first attempt at a tutorial - half lap miter joinery

07-14-2018 10:21 PM by Woodbutchery | 2 comments »

While working on another project, I needed to re-familiarize myself with working with my half-lap miter sled. While doing that, I realized I need to make something more stable than what I had originally come up with. The new sled was made out of a piece of mahogany plywood. The board was 26” x 10”. I ripped two strips along the length, each 1 1/2” wide, glued the strips together for the fence, and glued and screwed the fence to the board. I used my square to get th...

Gift Projects #1: Need a Gift? Make This Elegant Keepsake/Jewelery Box

02-01-2018 09:48 PM by ScottBelleri | 4 comments »

View on YouTube I made this box as a gift for my friend Linn from the Darbin Orvar channel. We made plans to drive down to Corvallis to meet with Linn and her husband Matt, and I decided to make this wooden box for them as a gift. I used some tropical hardwood for the sides (I think it was Ipe), and cherry wood for the top and bottom. The liner was Paduk. I only had a few days to make it, so I worked up until the last minute. I did what I could to save time, and ran into trouble figh...

Handtool Basics #5: Who is the KING of the Butt Joint?

01-22-2018 07:58 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Hey Guys, I did a quick little deep dive into the ins and outs of common butt joint techniques. I looked at biscuits, Mortise and Tenons (both hand cut and machine cut) Festool Domino Floating Tenons, and the Kreg Jig. I broke down how long it takes to make these joints, how consistent they come out, how easy and repeatable they are, and how strong each joint is. I break down (with lots of data) how much they cost in both money and time invested into each joint from the perspective of a...

Wood Glue Tests and Information #1: EIGHT Wood Glues TESTED with Unexpected Results

01-11-2018 08:41 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

View on YouTube I started wondering about wood glue recently and the more I thought about it, the more I thought that I should do my own set of tests. I am interested in Working Time, how well different glues will work with veneer, and how well they will work with bent laminations. I did not test for strength because Fine Woodworking did a great article on glue strength and their results were that most all glues are plenty strong enough. I also limited this to only PVA glues. I still ...

The Overhang Chair in Walnut

08-09-2017 11:37 PM by LeOmkr | 3 comments »

The basic structure of this chair draws Inspiration from the design of the iconic ‘Conoid Chair’ by the great japanese-american woodworker George Nakashima. Through progressive scaled models, design critique and study of human ergonomics the design of this chair is evolved from the basic concept of the nakashima chair. Made entirely in one slab of 4” thick walnut (type of a hardwood), I have also tried to stay true to nakashima’s philosophy of creating mini...
