Dovetail Information #1: Introduction

08-21-2012 04:02 AM by Mike Ogden | 0 comments »

View the full blog with photos here! When someone, woodworkers and non-woodworkers alike, hear the term ‘dovetail’ they usually do not imagine a dove’s tail. The picture something similar to the photo on the right. Dovetails are generally either what can be called ‘half-blind’, or ‘through’. In the furniture my classmates, myself, and other artisans create, you can see this joint used very routinely. Drawers, especially, are a dovetail gold min...

My First Workbench #5: Day 5: Slugging it out

08-17-2012 12:11 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today was all about slugging it out. I ended up smashing my knuckles against the wall stud I’m using as a brace when I was thinking ahead to the glue-up and not paying attention to how far I was reaching with the plane…then, I promptly sliced another finger on the sharp corner (how did that happen?) of the plank I was working on. Just a flesh wound… So, got a little bloody today, but, well, these things won’t plane themselves… Great thing about today th...

Tool thoughts #31: Happy Birthday - the report

08-15-2012 10:00 AM by NedB | 11 comments »

Morning all, Well yesterday was my birthday, and my loving wife and kids gave me two tools, plus some clothes. Since I doubt you LJ’s would care about the clothes, here are the new tools: Just an 18v Jigsaw (with laser sight) and a countersink/driver bit set. Not earth shattering, but they’ll be well used out in the shop. I have a relatively complete kit of Ryobi One+ tools, so I’m well stocked with two chargers and several batteries already. Now I just need something ...

Exercises in Artisanship #23: Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table: Part 6 THE FINAL

08-14-2012 07:28 PM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

This table is special I suppose because it is my first. My shop being set in all natural conditions sure made this a spread out project, there were some truly brutal hot and humid days that let this sit and wait for a better time to work with it. I wanted a piece that had touches of rustic warmth supported with lines of a Renaissance rhythm. To stand back and see the entire composition in it’s thought out form, from some ragged sketches to this on my living room floor is a nice reward for ...

A Special Shadowbox

08-14-2012 12:48 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 6 comments »

Not too long ago I was contacted by a young viewer on the A Simple Design of Ocala Facebook Page. Ryan Dellucky of Ponchatoula, Louisiana reached out and asked if I would be willing to donate a badge case or display case. When I asked him what it was for he told me about his grandfather.As Ryan stated, “My Grandfather at age 80 sadly passed away monday night and he was in a vol. fire dept. and he worked for The Times Picayune. He also climbed last year a 110 story building at the ag...

Table saw tenon jig

08-13-2012 03:45 PM by AJswoodshop | 5 comments »

Tenon joints are one of the strongest woodworking joints. They fit into a mortise, and make a very tight joint. There are many ways to cut a tenon. The most common way is to use a tenon jig on a table saw. I want a easy jig that will slide on my table saws fence. I don’t want something to complicated, just something that will get the job done. If anyone has any ideas. Please leave a comment below. Thanks AJ

First joint other than butt joint - mitered half-lap

08-11-2012 02:46 PM by Chris McDowell | 5 comments »

First, here’s the outcome: Not perfect, but better than I expected on my first try. I hand cut it with a Stanley miter saw that I found for $5 a few weeks ago. Not the best saw for this, I know, but I want to make a picture frame and don’t have a band clamp or anything, so I figured I would practice this type of joint, which I recently saw in a book, since it would give a better glue bond with the long-grain to long-grain surface area. I’m showing my mistakes a...

Restoration Of Table, Completed!!!!!

08-05-2012 06:23 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 11 comments »

When my grandad was a carpenter he worked in Aras an Uachtairain (the irish presidents house), he brought this table home from there one day when he was in his 20’s because it was going to be thrown out, he did some repairs and salvaged it. But after being used for 60 years (which the first governor of ireland wrote on the table) and then being used another 40 years when my grandad got it, it was in pretty bad shape. My granny said i could do what i wanted to do with it, because she had...
