Refreshing basic skills #1: Remembering how to cut dovetails

1208 days ago 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...

Moving forward with tools in tote!

372 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hello friends! Once again I want to thank you all so much for your comments on my last blog. It was really great to hear from you all again. It was just what I needed to resurrect my soul full of ideas and woodworking spirit. My last project some years ago…lol, well it felt like years ago..lol, was going to be my Country Carving Throne. Well folks because I left that project on the shelf for so long I honestly decided to leave it on hold for for now. A few misfortunes of my mallet bl...

American Hanging Cupboard #3: Cutting the tenons - What NOT to do...

1726 days ago by Mark D. | 3 comments »

So last night I began cutting the tenons on the table saw. Now before everyone tells me I’m lucky to still have my fingers or flames me for posting these pics, here’s a disclaimer. DO NOT use a table saw without the use of a throat plate. Disastrous things CAN and likely WILL happen… (See Also: Standard disclaimer “Blade Guard Removed for Clarity”) That being said… I’ve never had problems making cuts with the dado stack in the tablesaw without ...

My Joinery Journey #1: Lumberjock Style Care Package

221 days ago by CFrye | 17 comments »

These beautiful saws arrived in the mail a few days ago, a Lumberjock care package from TerryR. Terry was the recipient (poor guy) of the plane I made for the 2013 Hand Plane Swap. He found out I didn’t have any (real) hand saws and determined to rectify said deficiency. I was speechless when I saw them (pun not intended). Between work and a fall on the ice I wasn’t able to try them out until today. With my husband instructing and offering needed advice, I cut my first blind m...

Mission Style Pedestal Table #4: Completing the top, putting it all together

429 days ago by Douglas | 6 comments »

I made a lot of progress this past week. After getting the top together and cut to shape, I fitted it onto the sliders, and attached the tabletop levelers, to see how that would work, and to take a look at it all with the leaf pieces in place… success! The table sliders worked smoothly, and the top looks great all together. I then spent some quality time with the smoothing plane, raking light, and card scraper to get the top in final shape… some tearou...

Wine Rack Expedition #4: Result of Monotony

1942 days ago by Demowen | 5 comments »

Well folks, 160 dowel holes later, I’m ready to call it quits. I don’t mind hard work, but repetition drives me crazy! Here is a snapshot of some of those dowel holes…Now, notice the markings on the end grain. This is important to me so that I don’t keep having to second guess myself when I am putting things together. I have those pieces marked ‘L’ or ‘R’ for left or right and numbered from top to bottom. I mark all the pieces on the right ...

Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

1706 days ago by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

Projects #10: Making a new set of adirondack chairs

435 days ago by NedB | 9 comments »

My wife hinted strongly the other day that a new set of adirondack chairs would be a nice addition to the back yard. Wood has a set of pretty easy plans in their most recent issue, so I picked up some 5/4 PT pine and have spent the weekend cutting all of the parts to size and then rounding over all of the parts that will get handled. In this case, that’s a pretty significant pile of pine, about 50-60 parts for the pair of chairs. I Might have enough wood for another chair, but honestly...
