Medal Chest #5: Fitting It All Together

04-22-2013 10:57 AM by RaggedKerf | 1 comment »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. I spent today doing the tedious work of smoothing out all the dovetails.  I used the 1” chisel, mallet, and the new Moxon mini-bench to make all the dovetails as tight as I could get them.  There are still plenty of gap...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #3: Mortising the old fashioned way and a first panel glue-up

07-19-2014 06:43 PM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

We’ve continue on in the project. After crosscutting his first board by hand—getting him comfortable with hand sawing—He did a some rough crosscuts on the miter saw and some finer ones with the crosscut sled on the table saw. Here is his first cut on the miter saw. His commitment to doing the cuts safely is really comforting. The box has a small divided shelf held in place by mortises in the box. We’re doing them the old-fashioned way so he can learn to use ch...

A Domino Ooopppsss....

08-30-2014 03:08 PM by Huckleberry | 1 comment »

Here is where those seasoned veterans of the Festool Domino can point and laugh at some rookie mistakes. I am making a new cabinet to house my air compressor because the dawgone thing is soooo loud. So I thought it would be a great project to put my new Domino through some paces. As I was trying to understand some things on this machine I plunged into the face of some scrap 3/4” plywood I would be using to make the carcass. Well I created a through Domino, so back to the instruction...

Miter-jointed display case WIP

09-14-2011 01:12 PM by TimmyP | 1 comment »

I’m re-building a glass display case for a model of the USS Constitution. The top of the case is being a bit of a challenge, but I think I’m on top of it. Currently, I’m working on trying to get the new top to fit together using miter joints. So after I cut my miters, and reading the forum postings about trying to get a better miter cut, I realized I have a store-bought device to help cut miters (of any angle) with a circular saw. The thing was bought probably over 10 ...

Taiko Drums

11-10-2012 12:20 AM by TerryDowning | 1 comment »

I do a lot of volunteering for our local High School Marching Band. The theme of our 2012 show is “Samurai, The Way Of The Warrior” Last spring it was decided we really needed some traditional Japanese Taiko Drums to really make the effect. Taiko Drums typically cost thousands of dollars each. So, some of our parents started doing some research http://www.stanford.edu/group/stanfordtaiko/manual/index.html and we built them ourselves (only hundreds each now). Here is a ...

Guitar Rack #1: My next project

06-04-2012 12:01 AM by paullymac | 1 comment »

I decided to make a guitar rack to hold up my guitar off the floor. It has spent several years on a cheap metal stand on the floor. I got some sapele outs to use for the short parts, but the backbone of the rack will be made with maple. So far I made the bottom supports (with the general guideline/plan to the left of the supports) I plan to dovetail the supports onto a plank across the back. This first one is hand done with a hand saw and chisels (I’ve used a handsaw and ro...

Learning to Cut Dovetails by hand

02-13-2010 12:40 AM by scottwpaul02 | 1 comment »

Hey all, First of all I wanted to thank all of you guys and gals that have commented and given me hints or inspiration on my projects. I have loved woodworking my entire life, but only recently have I started to pursue it more diligently. My first goal was to learn how to cut dovetails by hand. I know it is a random goal, but I figured that the tools involved to get started…and the skill required would give me a good foundation or starting block to other things. So my first sto...

Two sources were… - plans I’d bought from Woodmagazine.com for a “Mission Dining Table”. It shows great info on making the octagonal top...
