Wedding Clock #9: Sides

06-17-2011 03:21 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

Now that the front and back have been assembled, I’m on to making the sides and the shelves that will sit in dados cut into the sides. Today’s blog is getting thoses sides made and ready for the dado process. That means basic milling. So I start with rough lumber, layed out for the best match I think. I check the direction the grain is running by planing a bit on each piece. This will allow the grain to be running the same when the whole piece is glued up and, hopefully, make...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #4: Thinking through the Full Blind Miter Jig

07-27-2014 11:11 PM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

For the waterfall leg, I’m using Full Blind Multiple Splined joinery as described by Tage Frid. I discovered this method by asking a question in a forum post here on LJ. Thanks to Woodendeavor and Randy-ATX for directing me this way. I purchased three of his books. This description is found on pp. 102ff of Tage Frid Teaches Woodworking, Book 1: Joinery The joint looks like this: The two biggest keys will be to cut the slab correctly and building the jig so the miters line up...

Custom Desk #1: Curved Dovetailed Drawers

04-12-2008 02:57 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

Willie asked yesterday if I could explain how I make dovetails on curved drawers. I may have just made it more confusing than it needs to be. I was able to find a few photos of making a drawer for a desk I built. I hope this helps. Lee

Jewelry Case Build #1: Rough Cutting Parts

04-22-2014 06:45 PM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...

Why Chris Schwarz is so skinny.

07-24-2009 06:22 PM by Ben | 9 comments »

I’m currently building a work bench and I’m trying to use as many hand tools in the building process as possible. I’ve been planing the legs for the past couple days, and after each leg I feel like I need to down a bottle of water, and I have. My muscles are sore and I’m out of breath. Now I’m 24 years old and in pretty good shape, but this is a hard task. I still have the top to plane as well. So to get to the point of the title. We all know “The Sch...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #15: Pretty much done

04-01-2015 11:02 PM by ic3ss | 13 comments »

I put in an eleven hour day yesterday on this thing, the work was really kind of fun compared to the tedious work of digging out mortises of the day before. I’ve never tried the draw bore method of locking a mortise and tenon together. I didn’t even use clamps. Well this morning I just had to get the tops to fit on the tenons, so after trimming back a couple of mortise surfaces they both fit down snugly, a very sweet fit. As a bonus, the sides of the tops ended up flush wit...
