Roy's Mystery Mallet #2: Mallet - 1, Glen - 1

Dear Saint Roy, I like you a lot more this week. Lots. Sincerely, Mallet Boy in PA ———————If you haven’t gotten a copy of the April 2012 issue of Popular Woodworking, do it today. That’s where this insanity all got started. But I’m telling you, I never could have launched into this if it weren’t for that article. They do a great job. Check them out. The second attempt with the hardwood turned out to be much ...

Dear “Saint” Roy, I hate you. Sincerely, Mallet Muttering in Pennsylvania ——— Actually, I don’t hate Roy. And I’m not that disappointed as to this first attempt. If you haven’t gotten the April 2012 issue of Popular Woodworkinghttp://www.popularwoodworking.com/apr12, you need to get it… now. They’ve got a great article by Roy Underhill on making the Mystery Mallet that you’ve been seeing around. ...

Cleaning a tenon up

01-31-2012 04:51 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 10 comments »

Well after going almost 2 months without doing a video and almost 2 weeks not being in the shop, I figured I would get some work done and while in the process shoot a short video. Well sadly my shop light burnt out and I have no bulbs for it, but I did get the video filmed before the light went out. Enjoy it and as always, all comments (good, bad, or terrible), tips, and tricks are welcome. Thanks!

Shop builds #1: work bench

11-30-2011 04:51 AM by SamuelP | 2 comments »

One day this workbench may be done. It is made from construction lumber. 4×4s, 2×6s and 2×4s. Other than being a functional piece for my “shop”. I wanted this to be a learning process for joinery I have not attempted. The size is about 4’x2’x35”. The small size has been depicted by my small space, the front portion of a 1 car garage. My one goal was to complete the structure of this workbench using no hardware, i.e., nails, screws, bo...

Work In Progress #5: Canasta Final Part

11-22-2011 07:31 PM by Byron | 2 comments »

So heres the finished thing. You can see it open in the pictures on the bottom. Better pictures soon to come. The drawers are an important part of my design because of my mother. When I was younger she taught my older brother and myself how to play canasta, and always had two nice decks of cards to play, unfortunately we were not the cleanest while playing and the cards almost always got ruined. Eventually she started to hide the cards. It came to the point where she would burry the c...

Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

11-22-2011 07:29 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...

Tuesday Tool Time #6: Gettin' my Kreg on

11-15-2011 04:06 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 9 comments »

This week I go in and explore the Kreg Jig Jr. I think this ended up being kind of an instructional video as well. I hope you all enjoy it. Also please let me know what you guys think about these. This is the 5th video review I’ve done. How do you lumberjockers like these? Anything need to be changed?

Skill Building #1: Mitered Dovetails Anyone?

03-29-2011 06:58 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 1 comment »

Every project’s layout phase, for me, is like spring training – what happened last season is a foundation to build upon; all things are possible when starting fresh. And it’s also an opportunity to set goals that, upon further review, seem almost unattainable. I find myself in that situation right now on something in the shop that’s been underway for a couple weeks. One specific joinery element I’ve decided to incorporate into the build is the mitered dovetail...

Dovetail Journey

03-23-2011 05:25 AM by RLindberry | 8 comments »

Well, due to a posting about first dovetails by mikeswoodshop, I decided to (somewhat) chronicle my journey with hand cut dovetails over the last year or so. My first attempts were far worse than anything here, but have been thrown away, so I don’t have pictures. I think the most heinous ones went into the wood stove. I figured that if I could get some heat out of them, they would at least be good for something. It wasn’t until my fifth or sixth joint that it occurred to me ...
