My New Workbench #3: Chopping the Leg Mortises

07-08-2015 03:20 PM by mramseyISU | 0 comments »

Time to get on with the part I was dreading the most, chopping mortise for the legs in the benchtop. I was dreading this because they were so big, 1”W x 4”L x 2”D to be exact. I roughed out the tenons on my tablesaw with a dado stack so nothing really to see there, then I finished them with my router plane. Next came the chop chop. These were the first mortises I’ve ever tried to cut completely with hand tools. I’ve done several where I drilled out most of the wa...

2x4 Bunk Bed Build #3: Drawbore mortise and tenon

Well in part 1 I went over cutting a tenon. Part 2 included how to chop the mortise. This time grab your drills and a few dowels as we pin the mortise and tenon joint together. This is as easy as eating cake, without all the calories. View on YouTube

Cherry File Cabinet #1: Milling frame and joinery

12-19-2014 10:34 PM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since my last woodworking project, so I’m easing back into the groove with a new file cabinet. I have a piece of junk tin cabinet in my home office that squeaks every time I open and close it. I did some serving trays in Cherry, and really liked working with it, so my new file cabinet will be Cherry. I found a photo online and liked the style so I sketched it up in Sketchup and AutoCAD. The legs are 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” and the rest of the frame is 1&...

A Sliding Door #6: On the glue

11-08-2014 01:41 AM by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

Started the glue-up yesterday, finished it today. Yesterday: I started by checking the fit for all the pieces. First up, the panels. And they don’t fit, which was expected. The groove has round ends while the panel is square: A few ways to fix this, but I picked up the mortise chisel and mallet to square off the ends of the grooves. The panels fit now The panel was a pretty tight fit, but I can address that later. Glued tenons into the first rail And then the rail into...

A Sliding Door #4: Mortising, part 2

11-04-2014 04:47 AM by Mark Kornell | 0 comments »

Back at it today. When I left the house, Spawn was sleeping on “his” chair. I closed the door quietly :-) Before getting back to mortising, I milled up the loose tenons. I wanted to make sure the paired mortises were going to work and I needed the tenons to check. May as well make them all at the same time: Some 3” wide, some 4”. Often, I’ll round over the edges using the edge sander, but in this case I started with long boards the right thickness and w...

Loose Tenon Jig

10-14-2014 08:37 PM by Mauricio | 9 comments »

I recently made a stone top table with Mortise and Tenon Joinery. I was thinking of making more of these tables, also ~3×3” legs with 1.5” thick aprons would make some pretty sweet work tables out of construction grade pine. Normally I would simply use a router and edge guide to make the mortise, then cut the tenons with a combination of hand tools (to cut shoulders) and bandsaw for the cheeks, then cleaned up with a router plane. However since I want to make multiple tables I figu...

Easy Pine Bookcase

09-17-2014 02:06 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 3 comments »

I created a nice pine bookcase with dovetailed joints on top, 3 thru tenons, and custom made molding. This was done using handtools (except nail gun). Check out the video and comment. Remember to like and share it to support YouTube woodworkers.
