Dovetails #2: Another (Improved) Hacksaw Attempt

04-01-2012 02:08 AM by stroml | 2 comments »

Just thought I’d give y’all an update since my first disaster. I chose to forgo the dull chisel this time and just went with the hacksaw, vise, and pencil. This time was much better as far as fit, but still pretty fugly. I’d give it a 4.5/10 as opposed to a 1/10 I would have given my last adventure. Here are some action shots. Cutting new tails (notice the first ones I did on the opposite end). Now the pins with my new and improved #2 marking device. Why didn’...

Tool Chest #2: Starting The Lid

12-04-2011 04:06 AM by JaLatham | 4 comments »

Ripping stock to size. I really don’t know why I was staying so far from the line. Not that it matters. Apparently my sawing has been getting better. I stayed away from the line to allow for wandering of the saw blade, but it tracked so straight that I think I can stick right next to the line next time. Jointing sawn edges. While I know that the shavings aren’t what is important, seeing the difference in the shavings of my jointer plane(on top), and my fore plane(on ...

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

I have a small shop and a small budget, so as I slowly grow my shop I have finally came to the topic of jointery and furniture making so I have my list narrowed down to purchasing the Incra iBox and a nice dado blade (suggestions on blades gladly appreciated) or a nice router and router table set up or keep saving up for a grizzly bandsaw. any and all suggestions welcomed

Moving forward with tools in tote!

07-15-2013 10:22 PM 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, 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...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #11: A chop is born

03-23-2015 11:21 PM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Today was a light day for me as I’m running out of things I can do until I get more wood, so today I cut out the side profile of the chop. I had this piece of thin ply laying around so I ripped it down to size and put my alignment marks on it, then drew the shoulder using a french curve template. Using the centerline I was able to do both sides. I clamped it on edge and sanded the template profile smooth then traced both sides on the chop. I cut a bunch ...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #1: Starting

11-05-2014 12:51 AM by stevo_wis | 1 comment »

Fine Woodworking Magazine published an article many years ago of a table that Sydney Barnsley built in the 1920’s.The table is now in a museum in Cheltenham England. The article had original drawings that I redrew in Sketchup.I traveled to England last year to see the original and I have just procured some old white oak barn beams that I am going to use for the undercarriage. The table fascinates me and will require a lot of hand work and chip carving.It may take a while, but I wi...

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

10-30-2009 06:25 PM 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 First Workbench #10: Day 10: Glue up finished, starting on joinery

08-21-2012 10:19 PM by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

If you want to see the version with all the pictures, please click here. I got up with the sun today to get a head start on bench before the munchkins got up. First order of business was to unclamp the 2nd half that I glued up last night. Then, after a quick run with the plane to smooth out the mating faces, I glued up the two halves. It’s now one massive slab of wood where a little over a week ago, it was just a collection of 16 2×4s. This thing is gratifyingly heavy as well. ...
