Sewing Table #4: Mortise and Tenons for my Birthday

06-12-2008 12:50 PM 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...

Around the Shop #13: Barnes Foot Powered Mortiser Disassembly

03-13-2017 03:33 AM by Mosquito | 9 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwxObDWgu1U I finally got around to editing and uploading this video. After I got enough of the mortiser cleaned up to get it moving again, I disassembled it to get ready to start cleaning some of the parts up and getting rid of the rust. I haven’t gotten very far on that part yet, but I did get it all disassembled.  Case Mod Portfolio: http://themodsquito.comFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/themodsquitoTwitter: https://twitter.com/TheMod...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #7: Bridle Joints and Mortises

06-14-2011 04:14 AM by Will Stokes | 1 comment »

Before I attack the stepped pattern, it made sense to work on the bridle joints that occur where the top of the posts meet the ends of the top rails. Using my super sled and a small attachment I made for cutting tenons, I made the mortise on the top of the posts using a standard blade by making a pass, rotating the board and taking another, before finally moving the fence and using a 3rd pass to clean up the center. The result is a perfectly centered mortise. The only problem I find I have wi...

Bragging #1: Finally Getting a Mortiser

04-18-2010 03:48 PM by brianl | 10 comments »

When I started woodworking last year I was doing mortising with a cordless drill and a cheap set of chisels. Based on the advice of my fellow lumberjocks I eventually tried using a plunge router with a spiral upcut bit, still cleaning up the edges and corners with a chisel. Then, the other day I was browsing craigslist and saw an ad for a Jet Mortiser for $140. I quickly called and drove out to see it. The mortiser was in pristine condition, only used once and came with three chisel...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #3: Rationalized Need

07-22-2009 06:04 PM 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...

Shaker Night Stand #1: The commitment

12-05-2009 05:40 PM 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...

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #2: SLOWLY finishing the legs, first glue-up

09-07-2014 01:13 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

This build is going slow because each piece is complicated and because the steps are a bit different than the usual fair. I also ran into some complications with my mortiser bits. But the first step of the build is now done. I marked the mortises carefully And then cut them on the mortiser. Cleaned up the mortises with a chisel—done with the mortises. I cut the double curves on the front legs (back legs were already done) on the bandsaw. With this build, the instructions ...
