Table Saw Splined Miter Jig

625 days ago by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

Watch how to use a spline miter jig on the table saw. Two simple and easy to make table saw spline miter jigs are demonstrated in this woodworking video presentation. Watch how the woodworker cuts accurate spline slots into the miter joints of picture frames. The two splined miter jigs are of differing sizes because the picture frames very in size. Notice how easy it is to cut the slots for the splines. Simply secure the picture frames to the jigs by using spring clamps. Adjust the heig...

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

2582 days ago 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?

889 days ago 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...

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

2625 days ago 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 #5: Canasta Final Part

1003 days ago 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

1004 days ago 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...

Beads Box #3: Handcut Dovetail Carcass

1951 days ago 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...

Joinery for the Beginner

2455 days ago 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...

Router Table #7: Drawers Under the Weather

1691 days ago 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 ...
