Dovetail Journey

1217 days ago 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 ...

Tool Cabinet

1285 days ago by pastorglen | 5 comments »

A friend of mine works for a lumber company that trims the ends of their kiln dried wood. The scrap pile is periodically burned, so employees are permitted to take home whatever they want from the scrap pile. My friend uses this wood to heat his house. Last year he shared a good load with me, and from those scraps I built this tool cabinet. Hand-cut joinery, hand-planed raised panel. Working on a pair of drawers and the finish. My only problem is trying to figure out how to ...

Machinist Toolbox #5: Carcass Joinery

1313 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Yesterday I was able to cut the tails on the carcass side parts. I used the bandsaw to cut the tails because the blade cuts straight and is narrow, although I did get some rough cut surface this time because I have a kink in the blade. I’m thinking in the future to use the Table saw with the blade tilted at ~10 degrees and the part passed vertically much like cutting box joints, but that will have to wait for future projects as for the time being -these tails are cut already. Once th...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #18: A Little Progress...

1524 days ago by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I finally had a day off, so I chopped up the messed up lock-mitered legs by setting the blade right up against the fence at a 45 degree angle. I was able to push the legs through with the help of a featherboard to be as safe as possible. I chopped a bit off each side, but I think the next version will be much better, even if they’re up to 1/2” smaller on each face. I started to run the freshly liberated faces through the table saw to reestablish fresh mitered edges to prepare f...

Walnut Beds #2: Joinery, Dry Fit Assembly and Some Details

1657 days ago by Andy Brownell | 2 comments »

So I made some pretty good progress over the last few weeks on one of the beds. The headboard and footboard combined have about 40 mortise and tenon joints, and some pretty precise geometry. The smaller mortises were made with a forstner bit and squared them up with a chisel. All of the smaller pieces in the headboard are flush with one another.Everything is so tight in the dry-fit stage that it probably could survive without a glue-up. With all of the pieces, I’m probably going to use ...
