How to Cut Half-Lap Dovetails with Hand Tools - at Roy Underhill's Woodwright's School

05-15-2014 12:46 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I shot the above detailed Video of master joiner Bill Anderson at Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School in Pittsboro, North Carolina. Bill shows how to cut a half-lap dovetail joint that covers the bottom groove in dovetail boxes. This excellent joint not only looks amazing, but it hides your grooves! BTW, he used mahogany wood on this joint. View the original blog post here. Yes, this video is longer than my typical videos, but i...

Adirondack Chair #12: Lessons Learned

05-07-2014 02:14 PM by Scott R. Turner | 4 comments »

This is a wrap-up posting to talk about some of the lessons I learned in making the chair. I like to retrospect a little at the finish of a project to understand what worked, what didn’t work, and how to apply those lessons to my craft. This was the first time I’d done a project with steam-bending. For the most part that worked out fine. The actual process of steam-bending is not as daunting as it first seems. There were some challenges in building the forms—they need...

We have been hired to make a dining room table from a 30’s model and slide it on the Biedermeier side.

Wooden Planes #5: A Pair of Pocket Planes

04-14-2014 05:16 AM by Mark Kornell | 2 comments »

Here’s a couple of pocket planes: The one on the left is made from walnut, the right is purpleheart and mahogany. Meant to carry around in an apron pocket for quick accessibility. They definitely show signs of banging around with all the other detritus in apron pockets… The irons came from Lee Valley, replacement irons for small planes. The iron in the walnut 7/8” wide and the other is 1” wide. As long as the irons are kept sharp, they work pretty well for putting quic...

Intarsia Draft Hoarse

03-29-2014 04:39 AM by bfairok | 0 comments »

Yes I did use a pattern gotten out of one of the recent ScrollSaw Magazines. Made 2 copies of overall pattern, one to use as a guide when placing the cut pieces together and keeping them in order, the other to make numerous copies on my home printer to attach to the selected woods by using clear shelf paper with glue on one side found at Home Depot. These then are cut out to match any adjoining piece and placed on my master copy. Once completed with cut outs, creat the different depths you...

"The End!" An office chair rehab nightmare( journey?)

03-26-2014 01:38 AM by DocSavage45 | 30 comments »

I am posting this because I said I would. It has taken much longer than expected, and it is not to my expectations when I started. It’s a nicely designed chair. I hadn’t sat in it…LOL! It’s going to be my desk chair for the desk to be posted when ever I stop screwing up the finish of the desk top. When it was finished today I sat in it. The back is straight and quite uncomfortable. SIGH! This is a chair I picked up many years ago. I liked the style. A poor man&...
