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

07-21-2010 03:56 AM 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.

Just for Fun... #25: The Trays Begin...

07-14-2010 09:35 PM by littlecope | 11 comments »

In the last episode it was decided that, because this Box is a little bigger than usual, I’d be making some trays for it. I guess I’m still anxious to use the new toy, because I sized the wood I’ll be using last… first!!After Re-sawing another scrap of the Cherry, I thinned it down on the Jointer to about 3/16”. These will be for the bottoms of the two trays…With the Imbuia top, and Cherry sides on the outer Box, I’m going with Imbuia sides and Cherry...

Joinery #1: I've got a haunch about these tenons.....

07-12-2010 03:38 PM by Rob Bois | 12 comments »

This is a recent blog post I did covering the haunched tenons for the cabinet doors for a six-leg sideboard I am building. This is actually episode 9 of probably about a dozen, but this one stands well on its own since it covers a common joint for basic but strong cabinet doors. I have traditionally used cope and stick joinery for most of my cabinet doors, but this particular design does not call for any molding detail on the insides of the rails and stiles, so I figured I might as well use...

The desks are now assembled and I started fabricating the drawer fronts and doors. After realizing I made the doors wrong and couldn’t use the concealed hinges that I wanted, I made another set.These pictures show some in progress shots of what I did to accommodate the hinges I have. The parts are marked and ready for drilling for the hinge cups. I used my General drill guide a lot on this project. Most of the drawer boxes are finished and I am now in the middle...

The Splined Mitre Joint

07-08-2010 03:51 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com.........
