Woodworking Books to add to your collection #2: Woodwork Joints - Charles H. Hayward

01-01-2008 04:52 AM by daiku1 | 1 comment »

I found this book by accident, and I would urge you to do the same. If you are a joinery junkie like me, this is a must have. I love the hand drawn illustrations in the book. You will learn about alot of techniques that will never show up in your average woodworking magazine article. Very much oriented toward handtool users.I have the hard cover from 1972, published by Drake, ISBN 87749-042-2. Great examples of jigs for improved hand work. Also, where else can you find pictures of peo...

"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...

A Strategy for Woodworking #4: Forgiveness

06-26-2014 08:06 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

Human all too human to quote Fred N. Yes we makers are too human. We’re too ready to find error in our work. The voice in our head keeps repeating: Not good enough, not perfect enough. We are always so ready to point out our mistakes, to find the tiniest of errors. When our client never sees them. When another maker doesn’t see them nor care. They see the whole, the entire piece and they’re delighted. So I say, keep your standards high but learn to forgive yourself for your errors that no ...

Tool Cabinet

01-14-2011 04:35 AM 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 ...

Handtool Basics #5: Who is the KING of the Butt Joint?

01-22-2018 07:58 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Hey Guys, I did a quick little deep dive into the ins and outs of common butt joint techniques. I looked at biscuits, Mortise and Tenons (both hand cut and machine cut) Festool Domino Floating Tenons, and the Kreg Jig. I broke down how long it takes to make these joints, how consistent they come out, how easy and repeatable they are, and how strong each joint is. I break down (with lots of data) how much they cost in both money and time invested into each joint from the perspective of a...

Next Project - Music Box

06-20-2007 06:19 PM by che | 1 comment »

I’m going to try and enter my next project into the wood joinery contest. I’m going to try and modify the Rockler music box plan to satisfy the wood joinery requirements. I think the challenge is going to be the sides. So I’m looking for ideas on how to joint the sides. They call for simple miter joints but that won’t work for the wood joinery contest. Please comment with any ideas. http://images.rockler.com/rockler/images/41898-md.jpg This picture shows a glass ...

A Strategy for Woodworking #5: The Fit Again

07-01-2014 05:40 PM by Gary Rogowski | 1 comment »

In joinery the fit of your pieces is like the fit of your shoes on your feet. If you can toss your shoes off your feet as you hit the couch, too loose. If you shoe horn them in, perfect. A good fitting joint fits snug. No pounding together but it shouldn’t fall apart either. It’s a balance you learn to achieve by sneaking up on it. Learn to use your shoulder plane and you’ll be happy no matter how you cut a tenon joint. Finesse the fit. The Northwest Woodworking Studio
