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

05-20-2010 05:55 AM 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

01-06-2010 07:45 PM 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 ...

Router Table #7: Drawers Under the Weather

01-04-2010 04:27 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

and I mean literally – we’ve had a snow storm here, and the garage is covered with more than a foot of snow. It was blazing outside and the high winds were blowing snow all over the place. my garage is unheated, but neither of those stopped me from making the most I could with an open window of time I got this weekend. I caved in, and ordered an Incra router plate for the top when they just posted the phenolic version on sale for $35 (they had a 10% off last week). I really ...

Mind-Blowing Japanese Dovetails

12-20-2009 07:47 PM by Blake | 12 comments »

I came across this eBay listing today. Its a book Traditional Japanese Carpentry Ornate Miter Dovetails. I wish it weren’t $100 because it looks amazing. I would love to own it (hint hint, Santa). Anyway, here is a sample from the eBay posting I thought you might like to see it: It just goes to show what a big world it is out there. There are so many different cultures, philosophies, methods, etc. out there that westerners don’t usually come in contac...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #53: Barn Cat in Training and More....

08-10-2009 04:06 AM by frank | 12 comments »

Barn Cat in Training and More…. I might as well introduce a new member in my barn and tell you some of her history. To start out with it might also help if I was to explain that the barn you are seeing here is an English Barn dated from around 1780. My wife and I started gutting this barn back in 2000 and then while I was on the road most of that winter, she along with a crew took the barn down in about a weeks time after numbering all the bents. Next after taking a year to get o...

Building Hand Tool Skills: A Dovetail a Day. Make that a week.

07-20-2009 08:33 PM by Jon3 | 11 comments »

While I would like to believe that I could dedicate enough time each day to run to the shop and chop a set of tails, I know that I’m kidding myself. But I’m determined to give myself the practice necessary to improve my sawing and chiseling skills, in the hopes that I can develop the kind of muscle memory I see in some of the really good woodworkers. To give you some context, I started this hobby around early 2006. I am, by no means, an excellent woodworker, but I strive to c...
