Dovetails aren't the most complicated joinery.

I was browsing Youtube for woodworking and I came across the following series of videos with several methods to joint wood. I thought it might be of interest to some, in particular those that like using hand tools. Enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL07A05F76CA819833

I’m unable to work in my shop right now cause it’s packed up for a move, so I decided to make an animated presentation to briefly describe wood movement on a table top. Watch the video here.

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #19: Done!

04-14-2015 02:15 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

My morning was taken up entirely by straightening out a snafu with my medical insurance co. and the doctor’s office. What a pain. Sometimes I wonder why I have health insurance. Anyway. . . When I did make it out to the shop, I had this cutoff piece of walnut left over from the leg vise chop that was perfect for the deadman. I’m not really done with it at this point, all I did was rip it and cut to length, cut a rabbet at the top and the V groove at the bottom. It fits right...

Another pile of pine #6: Wrapping things up, I hope

04-12-2015 06:21 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, last seen, that Island Project needed a door installed. Boss brought home a pair of oversized hinges of brass plated slendour. Then we went back out and found a magnetic catch to hold the thing closed. First off, the installed door.. Plywood had bowed a bit, in the wrong directions. Block plane to shave a few spots. Tried the catch at the top near the knob….didn’t catch. Ok, we’ll try at the bottom. Got the magnet part on. and the plate on…..F sty...

Another pile of pine #5: Part #6...Drawer Wars!

04-07-2015 05:15 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Every time I go to make drawers, a war breaks out. Mainly fighting a router, a guide bushing that doesn’t want to go together, a too short dovetail bit, and trying to make a jig WORK the way it was supposed to. Had the router apart, figured I could assemblr the guide a little easier…..NOT! Kept wanting to crossthread.. FINALLY got it in place. Router bit is as far out as it is safe to use. Cranked the bit down to almost where it was needed to be. Try drive was VERY n...

Shop Notes #15: Dancing because I made a JIG! Re sawing set up for my band saw

04-06-2015 02:41 AM by DocSavage45 | 22 comments »

Dancing because I made a JIG! I want to give credit to Randy/a.k.a. “Blackie,” Gary Fixler from whom Randy developed his band saw jig, and Gordon Rock who provided a YouTube video showing how to make a band saw jig. I adapted what I saw, especially from Randy’s blog, which included his outfeed tables and supports for the jig itself.Randy used furniture grade plywood to make his jig. I used material acquired over many years looking for purpose in my shop. I had fir plywo...

Another pile of pine #4: Part 5: Top and a shelf

04-05-2015 03:57 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First off….HAPPY EASTER! Well, added some cleats to hold a top in place, and act as “kickers” for the drawers. Cut around to get past the legs, and went to screw them in place…...something was a might off. Well, got the cleats on the ends installed , and a center cleat. Center cleat had to move a bit to line up? Ok, plopped the base onto the top. Placed a screw into each center line hole. Grabbed a LONG pipe clamp, and set it up at a diagonal. The idea...

Another pile of pine #3: Part 4: maybe a glue up?

04-04-2015 05:17 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, mosey back down the steps to the shop, GrandBRATS had showed up, and were acting acting…LOUDLY. Time for me to disappear… Got the rest of the mortises chopped out. Went fairly fast, too. I then set about adding the rebate for the plywood shelf. Nothing too hard about it, at least for the short stretchers Just set the Wards #78 to about 1/2” width, and a 1/4” deep. Checked the depth with a combo square on the plywood itself, too. As for the two lon...

Another pile of pine #2: Part 3: mortise and tenons and dovetails, oh my!

04-03-2015 09:10 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Floated down to the shop this morning. Actually felt like doing….something. Started off by cleaning the workbench off. Toolwell had filled up with who knows what. Couldn’t even stick a finger in there without finding the pointy end of a nail. So.. Looks a bit better? As for the trash.. Somewhere in there, was a plastic foot one nails onto the ends of a leg. My shoe found it, of course. Well after the removal of a nail… Got after the tenons that needed to ...
