Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #15: Rabbet Joints - Well Underway

03-13-2015 02:57 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Cutting dados for stretchers. I finally sharpened my new Kobalt 5/8” chisel and I am taking my time removing the waste. Also being real careful not to cut below the mark on depth. All cut for one side of one horse and laying on the work surface (uprights are on the wrong side – it fit much better with them switched to the correct side (reversed). Stretchers fit nicely. Gaps aren’t too big or wide. Good for saw bench/saw horse. And it stands up on it’...

Got start whittling it down – just now wants to fit together. About 1/3 of the way. Almost there! Finally! Not too bad for first dovetail ever.

How to Square, Flatten, & Dimension Rough Boards with Hand Tools {10 Steps}

09-27-2014 11:45 PM by WoodAndShop | 5 comments »

In the above video, and in the below 10 steps, I teach one of the most basic and essential skills in traditional woodworking: how to square, flatten, & dimension your own rough lumber into finished boards. To build quality traditional furniture, you need to start with perfectly flat and square lumber. Some people achieve this with power jointers, planers, and table saws. While the electrical power route is more economical for a commercial woodworking workshop, I prefer the safet...

Dovetail a Day #1: Days 1 through 5

04-24-2014 12:47 AM by Chris McDowell | 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 ...

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

08-26-2012 09:46 AM 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…
