Shaker Night Stand #1: The commitment

1728 days ago by NBeener | 17 comments »

I’ve always heard that—if, for example, you’re going to quit smoking—it helps to tell everybody you know that you’re going to quit, and on what date you’re going to quit. It helps get you committed (something that’s been talked about, in my case, for years!). So … here I go. My next ww project is a Shaker Style night stand. Actually, it’s two: his and hers. I’m going to build mine first, so I can butcher IT, and then tra...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #3: Rationalized Need

1864 days ago by CaptainSkully | 0 comments »

After working in the Valley for a couple of weeks, I decided to spend some of my harder than I thought earned money to get a mortising machine. I settled on the DELTA 14-651 because of its Amazon reviews and price point ($289). I would’ve loved to get the Powermatic, but that would’ve taken another year to justify ($480). I rationalized that with all of the mortises that I’ll need for the dining room table, that this additional expense will pay itself off on this on...

New Tools and Tool Experiences #1: Mortiser

1908 days ago by thiel | 4 comments »

Just ordered me a Powermatic 701 Mortising machine… and I got it for a steal! I’ll let you know when it arrives! Any tips for setting this type of tool up? I’ve seen a million videos on installing and tuning saws, but never a thing on a mortiser. 2009: The Summer of the Tenon!

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #1: Concept

2042 days ago by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

So I had always planned to build Norm’s Miter Bench and Storage project in my workshop, but then I ran into the Ultimate Tool Stand. The more I started thinking about it, the more I liked the idea of combining the two concepts into one unit. I am currently planning to recess the miter saw area into the Norm’s bench. I will make the saw removable so that it may be replaced with a router table, portable planer, pocket hole jig, mortiser, sanding station, and bench top. Since the...

Sewing Table #4: Mortise and Tenons for my Birthday

2269 days ago by Blake | 16 comments »

Time for the Mortise and tenons. First of all, thanks to all who gave me advice about the mortising machine from the last blog. I did hone and tune the chisel and mortise machine and it did cut considerably better. I also turned the chisel so that the open side faces the previously bored section and didn’t have any trouble with chips getting stuck (thanks Betsy!) So I made the layout lines on my legs: And cut the mortises. Notice the stop block for repeatability: I w...

A Beginner's Progress #2: The First Project Begins

2646 days ago by jstewart | 7 comments »

I’ve decided to build a simple nightstand as my first project (or at least my first project since buying a table saw and joining LumberJocks.com). The basic design of the nightstand comes from a fellow LuberJock. Check out the original here. Last weekend I bought the lumber, $65 of Red Oak from the local lumberyard with a great hardwood selection. I highly recommend this place (Schutte Lumber) to anybody in the Kansas City area. I pulled out the mitre saw to chop everything dow...

Thoughts on the Hollow Chisel Mortising Machine (updated 11-14-2007)

2737 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 18 comments »

In a recent Blog by Obi, he discussed using a router to cut mortises, and this started up a discussion, in which Don cautioned against getting a Hollow Chisel Mortiser. I think there are good thoughts on both sides of this debate, and I don’t mean to do anything other than offer some more experience about purchasing and using a Mortiser, and other methods of cutting mortises. As in anything, the more money you spend, the better tool you get. If I were buying just what I wanted, not what ...
