Refreshing basic skills #1: Remembering how to cut dovetails

04-01-2011 05:56 AM by David Kirtley | 5 comments »

I have been reading other people’s posts on hand cut dovetails and I thought about it and realized that I have not actually hand cut a dovetail in a long time. For those that don’t know, I have been getting myself set up again for woodworking and it has been nearly 20 years since I had a workshop. Most of my time and effort has been getting tooled up again and I can say now that I have what I want to work with. The last phase of acquisition was getting saws. To start with, I g...

Skill Building #2: Mitered Dovetails, Part Two

03-31-2011 04:09 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 22 comments »

Okay, if mitered dovetails are the objective and three tries is what it takes to make it happen, then here is number two… In pictures: First, set gauge: Mark tailboard w/ miter: Mark, knifeline and cut mitered edge: Using coping saw to clear the pin ‘waste’ between the tails: All Clean! Now for the challenge. Hard to scribe cutlines on the pinboard because of the miter cut: Cutting the pin board miters: Clearing pin was...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #1: Basic construction

03-30-2011 10:39 PM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...

First Attempt at Hand Cutting Dovetails

03-29-2011 07:08 PM by Brian024 | 12 comments »

I have never tried hand cutting dovetails before so I thought I would take a swing at it, I wasn’t going to film it at first but I figured, if I made a mistake you guys would get to see it. I did have a good time though, next step is half blinds.

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #3: Building the frames...

03-27-2011 07:43 AM by Lockwatcher | 2 comments »

Well, I’m back from the big box store – and have the screws I need to finish the table. I also picked up my MDF for the top and the bottom shelf. I’m using 3/4” MDF as I will be supporting a heavy planer (I don’t have it yet, but I am going to get a Dewalt 735). I scraped off the excess glue off the sides of the leg assemblies, then ran each side on my jointer with two passes on each side. This put me back to 3” x 3” legs (and my glue line was ...

Saddle / Tack Caddy #1: Saddle / Tack Caddy Design

03-27-2011 03:32 AM by RandyMorter | 12 comments »

My wife sent me an email at work on 3/25/2011, asking if I didn’t think I should build her a saddle / tack caddy. Even though she’s had a couple of horses in the almost 25 years we’ve been together, I had no idea what she was talking about. Knowing that, the email contained a picture of an example of what she was talking about from “for the barn”. I found another one or two examples online to compare. This looked like a good project for me – it’...

A Custom Bathroom Wall Cabinet with Raised Panel Doors

03-26-2011 09:01 PM by Bob Simmons | 1 comment »

“It’s not that I had a message that was outstanding or unique or anything like that. I just expressed the feelings that a great number of people had … ‘Live the life that you want to live. Don’t be unhappy in your work.’” ...James Krenov (1920-2009) In this woodworking article we study the making of a custom bathroom wall cabinet of beautifully grained black walnut with raised panel doors.
