1439 days ago by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

The following is an addition to The Apprentice and The Journeyman woodworking video series, Let’s Build. The dedicated dado sled for the table saw is a highly versatile woodworking shop fixture that can expand the woodworking approaches used by many woodworkers. Dado blades are used on the table saw instead of a typical saw blade and the dado blades are often said to be “stacked.” This term implies that the dado blades, chippers, and shims are combined to create a cert...

1440 days ago by Dez | 2 comments »

I realize I am a picky little sucker but am I over the line on this or am I wrong in the way I see this?From the http://www.garymkatz.com/trimtechniques/hiddenpivotbookcaseinstall.htm Edgebanding plywood shelvingI’ve done a lot of edgebanding and always hated the hair-line crack that develops between the plywood and the solid stock. That gap is caused by the inner plywood endgrain_ swelling from the glue, which puts a little belly in the edge and forces the banding away from top and bottom...

Project SC #4: Its like that and thats the way it is

1442 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

So 1st fallback reached yesterday. I have to border the pattern. For the pattern glue-ups I used a traditional glue, PVA. This is good for this purpose but if I had mitred all edges (and the top) the tiny 1mm squares at each corner might not have held on at all. Worse still is the possibility that they would chip off over time. So bordered it is. Using 7mm strips of Purpleheart I set out the patterns to give me an overall idea of what it would look like. I then labelled everything s...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

1449 days ago by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

Phase 1 of my new kitchen completed. This is another in the endless list of projects I’ve embarked on since starting my new home construction back in 2007 with the focus on providing all the labor, or as close to it as possible. The kitchen has been a long time coming, a lot of time spent in designing, drawing models and finally arriving at what I think I want;) Construction materials: Base cabinet boxes: V.C. Pre-lacquered 5/8” sheet stock.Door/Drawer faces: Curly sugar ma...

Joinery #2: Don't get your drawers in a twist

1464 days ago by Rob Bois | 3 comments »

I have done videos in the past about how I handle hand cut dovetails for drawers, so for this current project I decided it didn’t make much sense to just highlight the same techniques. Instead, I focused on several challenges I faced with this most recent set of drawers, ranging from some tricky grain to sharpening fatigue. This won’t teach you how to build a drawer, but you might find a few tips you can apply in your shop.
