Pensai Table #2: Version -0.75

974 days ago by chscholz | 9 comments »

Here’s another practice version of a “Real Asian Style” table. I tried to use traditional Chinese joinery (or at least what I think would be traditional Chinese joinery). Design is as simple as I could possible think of, not waisted as it really should be, no moldings. Material are a few 2×4’s that probably don’t quite have the right proportions. At this stage for me it is really about learning the joinery so I did not bother preparing the stock. I got...

Simple, fast plater box holder with handtools

697 days ago by tirebob | 2 comments »

My lovely wife was on me to make a simple box to hold a planter, so I went out to the shop today and whipped this up out of some old, unfinished flooring pieces. Dead simple with one DT per side. She wanted it rustic so it was the perfect chance to try and cut them quick and see how it all fit together. For a straight of the saw tail sides and a chop to the base line, with virtually no paring, I was more than pleased! Finished it all off with a bit of BLO and 3 coats of amber shellac and a bi...

Chisel metal strength

505 days ago by DouginVa | 10 comments »

I’ve been practiciing hand cut dovetails recently and before I started out I wanted to make sure my Mifer chisels were at their sharpest. I have a WorkSharp 3000 and have always been happy with it but I thought I’d try to give my chisels a hand sharpened mirror finish and a micor-bevel on some wet stones (8000 grit). I was very pleased with the hand sharpened edges at a 30 degree bevel, except that after chopping out some dovetails on cherry and pine I noticed the nice crisp s...

starting my kitchen cabinets

1695 days ago by woodchic | 78 comments »

Hi everybody…....My husband finally got the floor finished…...he did a fantastic job I might add and now…..I finally sucked up enough courage to get started on my kitchen cabinets. The kitchen and dining area is 14 ft wide x 24.6 ft long. My cabinets are made of plywood and my face frames and doors are made out of hickory. I have never worked on a set of kitchen cabinets before, so I am pretty much learning this on my own. I have a friend on here that gives me advice whe...

Roubo #5: Stretchers

417 days ago by bondogaposis | 2 comments »

I made a little more progress this week. I now have the stretchers cut and fit. The first thing to do is to cut the mortises. It took a lot of fiddling and was pretty slow going with the mortises that are 2 1/2” deep by 3/4”. I could only get away with going about 3/16” w/ each pass that’s a lot of passes to get 2 1/2” deep on eight mortises. Next up was the tenons. These went much faster. Here they are roughed in using a dado on the table saw. I d...

handtool workbench #5: no real progress still...

249 days ago by Tugboater78 | 5 comments »

time, weather, work, other projects, overwhelmed by the dimensioning by hand, who knows the real reason but really haven’t made much progress. Today i used my newly acquired table saw to get things a little closer in size, and my new “outfeed” table to see if it could take it, and it did it like a champ, did have some burning here and there though, due to user error im sure. I mentioned before, the bench will be 2 ~12 inch slabs for the top. It will have a 2BDetermined...

Building an oak dining room table #1: It begins....

521 days ago by albachippie | 1 comment »

At last I have been given the go ahead by the client to manufacture the oak table. This is the sketchup drawing I did about 9months ago It was indicitive and not a final design. This was accepted along with the quote, but put on hold until further notice. Well I was called about 3 weeks ago and told to go ahead with the build, so I repriced, just to make sure that the timber was still within the budget, and ordered the oak. I collected it on Wednesday and quickly realised that there wa...

A secret dovetail?

14 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

been trying my hand at a few of those “Full Blind Dovetails” aka miter, or secret dovetails. From the outside, they look like a regular mitered joint. But, open the joint up, and a few dovetails appear. Anyway, did a little research, watch a bit of Roy Underhill, and made a sketch or two. Down in the Dungeon Shop, I had a few cut-offs of walnut 1×4s. Not very long ones, but something to putter around on. A bit of plane work to get them all about the same w...

Step-back Cupboard Build #1: Lumber prep

1774 days ago by rwyoung | 0 comments »

I decided I need a nice place to keep some china what-not that has started to accumulate around here. My parents keep dropping off stuff that they have stored at their house, now it is getting stored in mine… After much looking around and cogitation on the matter, I decided the first thing to make would be a cupboard, specifically a step-back cupboard. These are open on the top, and a closed cupboard on the bottom. Sometimes two pieces, other times one. Later I’ll look into...
