Wood Glue Tests and Information #1: EIGHT Wood Glues TESTED with Unexpected Results

01-11-2018 08:41 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

View on YouTube I started wondering about wood glue recently and the more I thought about it, the more I thought that I should do my own set of tests. I am interested in Working Time, how well different glues will work with veneer, and how well they will work with bent laminations. I did not test for strength because Fine Woodworking did a great article on glue strength and their results were that most all glues are plenty strong enough. I also limited this to only PVA glues. I still ...

Desk Chairs #4: Curvy Chair Backs

01-01-2018 02:54 PM by EarlS | 5 comments »

I never really paid much attention to the curves and angles on our dining room chairs or wondered why, or more importantly, how they were built that way. Building these chairs has given me a new appreciation for the subtle functional details that go into designing a comfortable chair as well as one that is visually appealing. The angles were the main challenge with the legs and seat rails while the back of the chair is a confluence of curves and arches. Once again, the instructional wri...

The Quest for a Better Bench #5: Mortise and Tenon Joinery... Just writing that makes me feel like a SUPER WOODWORKER!!!

11-05-2017 12:56 AM by PlanBWoodworks | 1 comment »

DISCLAIMER!!! THis post only contains a small portion that relates to Mortise and Tenmon Joinery. It just made me feel all tingly to include that in my title. Sorry for misleading you. At the end of my last blog entry, my workbench top was in the glue up stage. I glued up the top in 4 sections that would allow me to combine 2 and BARELY be able to run them through the planer. I was shooting for a top that was 60” long and 25”wide. both 12 1/2” sections maxed out the capacity of my De...

Bed build #1: Catching up

07-16-2017 01:16 PM by Scout989 | 0 comments »

Okay, this is the first project I’m blogging, so please bear with me and drop me a line if you have suggestions for improvements. This is my second major build, and the first I plan to record at all. I am now building a California king bedframe for a couple friends of mine. I have no real idea what the style is called, but I’ve been mentally designating it “farmhouse style.” This bed is being built with poplar, as it was cheap enough that I could afford to replace ...

cypress and walnut dresser build #1: Getting started

09-28-2016 10:14 PM by Floridaboy | 1 comment »

Wanted to build a chest of drawers to replace my old broken one. So I started thinking of what u want it to look like. Came up with using floating cypress panels for the case. With flush mounted walnut drawer fronts for contrast. While I was looking for lumber I came across a live edge cherry slab about 3 inches thick and decided to incorporate it. I wanted legs that were proud of the rest of the case. The dementions were influenced by space available and what seemed right. Here’s a ...

Leg and support joinery

04-21-2016 04:29 PM by Tooch | 2 comments »

After fixing the holes in the legs, it was time to square up the top supports and begin on the large motise and tenon joints on the underbracing. I started by finding the center of the supports and measuring out from there: After that, I carefully marked out what needed to be removed: I used a combination of a 3/8” mortise bit (for the corners), a 2” forstener bit (for the large middle section), and a hand chisel to clean up everything else. A dado bit on th...

biscuits VS mortise and tenon

02-29-2016 05:11 PM by needshave | 3 comments »

I have never been a real believer in the use of biscuits in the glue up of large table tops or wider sections in general. Especially where end grain and long grain must be glued together. However, I have never used them either. I’m very old school and have always defaulted to Mortise and tenon and have often pinned those joints with dowels. It strong, its reliable, if time and proper procedures are used to make the joints properly. That’s the downfall this construction method i...

Kitchen Utensil Box #3: Cutting the joinery

05-31-2015 02:16 AM by JSOvens | 2 comments »

So here comes one of the more exciting parts of the project: the cutting of the joinery. If you saw the first post in this series, you would have seen the interlocking mortise and tenon style joinery I planned to use. Since I accidentally cut the Padauk posts 1/2” too short, I had to redo the sizing for the mortises and tenons. To make the rest easier to follow, I will repost the image of the test run here: I began with the mortises, since they are generally easier. I have not ma...

2x4 Bunk Bed Build #2: Chopping Mortises-How To

04-11-2015 06:17 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Wow it seems like this is going slow. Work has been busy and finding time to work on this bunk bed is hard. However, I have finished up another step in the bunk bed and that is getting all the mortises chopped out on the ends. There were 12 total and they all went smooth. In this video I show what tools you need to mark your mortises as well as which tools you’ll need to chop out the mortises. Enjoy, comment, share, and give it a thumbs up! View on YouTube
