Princess Daybed for Daughter #4: Tenons!

07-11-2018 12:56 AM by JohnMcClure | 1 comment »

First, those 3/4” mortises I’d saved for last:Came out much cleaner and easier than the 1/2”. The mortise is wide enough to vacuum chips out easily. Now time for tenons on the straight rails. The easiest ones will be on the front rail, since it is full-width and has no cheeks, just small shoulders. Perfect fit: The 1/2” holes are empty right now, but I’ll use oak dowels to pin this joint together and be able to disassemble it for moving. I like the look of ...

The Great Table #1: Steep Learning Curve...

05-03-2018 12:09 AM by haystack | 0 comments »

Hello All! I’m posting this in order to get some ideas, life expectancy, and general feedback for my first wood project. Anything you can see that would be an issue, may have worked well, or you would have done differently i’d be very interested to read. I’d like to introduce you to my project and a little about myself: I have not previously done any woodworking. This project was brought up by an opportunity and lots of Google… This is an attempt at a ...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #18: Ambitious Endeavor Realized

02-01-2018 10:06 PM by Ron Aylor | 24 comments »

Ambitious Endeavor Realized –  I did it! After 426 hours, my ambition became a reality. Once the eight part door panel came together, all it needed was stiles and rails …                 Sorry for the bad photo … when they say do not shoot photos with the sun in front … I guess they mean it! With the stiles and rails cut, mortises and tenons cut and fitted … it was a quick clamp up to drill for pins …                 … and I had a door … whew! Before inserting the pins, I dyed the walnu...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #17: The Door Panel

01-27-2018 11:01 PM by Ron Aylor | 18 comments »

The Door Panel –  Now for the really hard part … an eight piece door panel. Having measured the rough opening in the upper case I created a full scale drawing …                  … and positioned it inside the opening to double check the proportions. All is well. Now I just have to duplicate the drawing using eight little pieces of wood. Tools don’t fail me now!                 By making this panel first, I can take up any slack within the stiles and rails. By design the stiles and...

Handtool Basics #5: Who is the KING of the Butt Joint?

01-22-2018 07:58 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Hey Guys, I did a quick little deep dive into the ins and outs of common butt joint techniques. I looked at biscuits, Mortise and Tenons (both hand cut and machine cut) Festool Domino Floating Tenons, and the Kreg Jig. I broke down how long it takes to make these joints, how consistent they come out, how easy and repeatable they are, and how strong each joint is. I break down (with lots of data) how much they cost in both money and time invested into each joint from the perspective of a...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #16: The Drawer

01-21-2018 09:45 PM by Ron Aylor | 12 comments »

The Drawer –  Well, today (1-21-18) was a veritable heat wave in Lilburn. Sixty-nine degrees! Can you believe it was below freezing just a few days ago? The awesome weather allowed me to complete the drawer for this Prie Dieu. I got home from church this morning about ten o’clock and immediately started resawing some 3/4” pine for drawer parts.                 I even got to use my newly acquired J. Pearce No. 109 jack plane.   I will need to add a slight camber to the iron … it le...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #15: The Top

01-12-2018 08:41 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

The Top –  I haven’t had much shop time since my last blog post. The weather was not on my side. If it wasn’t dark and rainy, it was just too cold to be in the shop. Besides that I was down with the flu from the day after Christmas until just a few days ago. If it isn’t one thing it’s another. The last few days have been great, though. I was able to glue up and smooth the top …                   … and get the trim pieces and corners ready for gadrooning.        ...

Desk Chairs #3: Spending time with my buddies Mortise and Tenon

12-23-2017 02:38 PM by EarlS | 3 comments »

After getting the FMT Pro mortise and tenon jig as an early Christmas present, I’ve been busy setting it up, figuring out how it works, and making the mortises and tenons for the Kevin Rodel side chairs. There are a total of 5 mortises on each rear leg, 3 on the inner face (crest rail, back rail, seat back rail) and 2 on the front face (seat side rail, side stretcher). The front legs also have 3 mortises, 2 on the rear face (seat side rail, side stretcher) and one on the inner face ...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #14: Click … Swoosh

12-11-2017 08:07 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

Click … Swoosh - Before tackling the eight panel door, I thought I would give my newly made lamb’s tongue template a work out.  After locating the stopped chamfers with chalk, laying out the lamb’s tongue(s) was a breeze.  … not too shabby … if I say so myself!                 Aside from the cocobolo butterflies, these stopped chamfers and lamb’s tongues will serve to reference the Trinity without altering the over-all style.                 As I was thinking about the drawe...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #13: Two Become One

12-06-2017 04:35 PM by Ron Aylor | 5 comments »

Two Become One –  I thought I would take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and glue up the upper case. First I attached the barley twist accent pieces to the front frame with wood screws …                  … these pieces are proud of the frame by 3/8” as they overlap the side pieces.                 I applied the General Finishes Medium Brown Dye/Stain concoction to all the upper case pieces and once dry … glued it up!  The false bottom I mentioned in an earlier post cons...
