Machinist Toolbox #5: Carcass Joinery

12-17-2010 03:49 AM 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...

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?

Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #2: Continuing with the construction

07-28-2007 04:59 AM by Karson | 6 comments »

One thing nice about not being allowed to use glue, No glue clean up and you can pre-finish all of the parts before assembly. On my finishing blog I wrote about using Pumice and Rottenstone as a wood filler, I thought I’d try something different on this cabinet. I used my private blend Danish Oil (1/3 Boiled Linseed Oil BLO, 1/3 varnish, and 1/3 Mineral Spirits). I squirted it on the boards and used a 120 grit Random Orbital Sander (ROS) to sand the oil and sanding dust. In doing that I wa...

Roy's Mystery Mallet #4: How Small Can You Go?

03-16-2012 02:27 AM by pastorglen | 3 comments »

So I had some extra time on my hands… and I wondered, just how small can you go with this rising dovetail mystery mallet? So I pulled out a piece of 3/4” oak that was sitting around, cut it in half, and started laying out the cuts for a very thin “mallet.” I used a blue pen, which is part of the dark line you see along the joints. (They actually are very tight—tighter than I expected.) I didn’t take a lot of time to in laying it out, and my entire tim...

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...

Zhuhai and Meixi village #1: In search of the perfect handcut dovetail

06-14-2007 09:29 PM by chscholz | 9 comments »

So what is it, the ultimate handcut joint? The ultimate joint will require precision, flawless execution and many years of training. Many of us Western woodworkers would probably say the dovetail. Two weeks ago I had the chance to see one of the best executed examples of handcut dovetails I have ever encountered. It was in a side-area of the flower room of the Meixi village museum. Meixi was a small village in the Pearl river delta, today it is a suburb of Zhuhai, essentially the Northern ...

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...

Joinery for the Beginner

12-02-2007 08:07 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 36 comments »

Gwurst Started IT! Gwurst started a forum about a tv cabinet that he is designing and building. Here is a fine example for all the newbies to see open source woodworking knowledge in action. His ideas of construction have changed dramatically. You can check it out here. What I really want to feature here is joinery. One intimidating factor of construction is the joinery. The thought of tackling all that traditional old world joinery can be a bit overwhelming. It’s Pocke...

Beads Box #3: Handcut Dovetail Carcass

04-19-2009 06:49 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Finally after getting the table saw and tuning it, I’m able to get back on track with woodworking projects… I still dont have my router table, so using the incra fence wouldn’t be possible to get the dovetails done. I read “The Bandsaw Book”, and it had a really nice Jig for making dovetails on the bandsaw with handcut look and fit, but with the automation of a machine and jig. I really liked the idea, and figured I’d use that technique. unfortunatel...
