Dovetail a Day #1: Days 1 through 5

125 days ago by iamcliff | 10 comments »

I’ve tried dovetails before with the one back saw I had before – a $5 Stanley cross-cut saw. Results were less than stellar, way less, even disgustingly horrible, so I gave up trying until I got some proper tools. I got a Veritas dovetail saw and some dovetail markers for Christmas (per my specific request). I bought a vise and finally got it installed last week. So, I was ready. I had seen Christopher Schwarz’s article on doing a dovetail a day and I decided to give it ...

Half Lap Joint

579 days ago by bigchopperoo | 3 comments »

I’m going to do a half lap with a cross cut, chisel paring, and followed through with a shoulder plane. Now if you didn’t know better, you might be thinking I’m an Olympic diver getting ready to execute a stunning high dive. But alas, I am not. I’m a woodworker, and this is a structural joint and the tools I will use to make a simple, yet strong woodworking joint. The Half Lap is a joint used to connect two intersecting pieces of wood. Each piece of wood is sawn to half its thickness. Whe...

My Maloof lowback #10: The dark spots are my sweat

731 days ago by Antti | 6 comments »

Except for a small rotary tool I use around the joints, I dont dare to use power tools at this stage. So yes, those dark spots are my sweat. Dripping sweat makes the chairs that much more handmade? Anyway, I can see the form slowly coming together – a glimpse of the hardline here and there, a maloof joint starting to look its part,... I have to pace myself, as if I keep going too tired, I become careless and make mistakes. I hope they sand out…

Joinery #2: "The Ugly Dovetail"

804 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 11 comments »

I’ve always been amazed at the dovetail joint. The way it locks in together and that the dovetail was used to build houses back in the day. Well instead of just staring at them, I decided to give it a go. FWW Disclaimer- I’m not an expert, don’t copy me. (it’s a joke)

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #24: Drawbore, Glue Up, and Starting on the Tabletop

898 days ago by RGtools | 22 comments »

The process of drawboring has been mostly covered but I felt like giving a few tips in case this is in your mind to do on your table. The main thing is to make sure that the holes are spaced so they miss each other and are close to the middle of the tenon (mine could have been closer). Also make sure that the hole you drill is not going to be under the shoulder of one of your rails…simple mistake that makes assembly kind of hard. Your holes should be as close to the rails as they can be witho...

Box with hand cut finger joints #1: Making the cut

978 days ago by Sanman | 5 comments »

I decided I was going to get some free wood from a local retail store that had left over pallets laying around. After getting permission, I borrowed a pick-up truck and got a load of pallets home. Trial and error taught me you can not just hammer them apart and expect to have any usable wood. I finally used a handheld circular saw and carefully missed the nails as I disassembled the pallets. I managed to get four small pieces that looked like they could make a box. I cleaned up the edges o...
