Trestle Table #17: Mortises and Tenons

10-19-2016 03:38 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I returned to this Trestle Table project today. Actually, I have been doing some items with this project like making a jig or two. The wedge to hold the leg assemblies required a small jig. I also needed to make some templates from the printed plans I got from Fine Woodworking Magazine or Taunton Press. The feet for this table has a curve as well as the cap part at the top of the leg assembly. I made templates for these curves from some 1/4 inch thick MDF. I had cut the mortises ...

Trestle Table #13: Cutting Tenons with Spacer Blocks

09-22-2016 07:22 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I have not received a reply from my three questions sent to Saw Stop’s support. I have concluded that they really do not have a setup where I can use multiple blades as in the twin blade joinery article I was using on my other table saw. Based on this assumptions that Saw Stop can and only will have running solutions that pass their computer checks with their two braking systems, I have moved forward with a spacer block solution for cutting tenons on my Saw Stop table saw. I repl...

Trestle Table #10: Tested Plunge Router JIG

09-16-2016 03:39 AM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

I finally tested the plunge router mortising JIGs I made yesterday. I will need much more experience in using the router to make mortises. I used my digital caliper to measure the depths I was getting. For some reason the depth settings was not reliable, as yet. Went I route my mortises in the trestle table’s leg assemblies I will check the depths I have cut with the calipers. I am still not decided whether I will square the routed mortises or round the tenons.

In Howie's Shop: thoughts and work in progress...

11-20-2015 04:32 PM by HappyHowie | 8 comments »

I have been sending text messages to two of my sons and at times to my two daughters. I would send photos and comments of what I was doing today in my woodshop. I am probably boring them, most of the time. Today I had the thought that I should put my thoughts and updates to work-in-progress in an online blog. So this is what this thread will be. Text in my blog can sit there and bore nobody, or someone who chooses to be. I will simply start with stuff I am working on today, without bac...

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

My First Workbench #12: Day 12: More mortises.

08-24-2012 01:36 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

(Only one picture for this short update today so I decided to post it here too!) Nothing special today, just more working on chopping mortises and 3 more tenons…lots of sawing. Lots. But I have to say I’m seeing a little improvement in my abilities to feel when the wood is telling me I’m going to fast or off angle on the saw strokes. It’s getting easier to saw too—-I’m not putting near as much pressure as I did on the first cut of this project. It f...

A Hanging Wall

05-29-2010 01:34 AM by Troy | 11 comments »

The Commission  About the beginning of May, I met with a friend of a friend at their new photography studio in Fairbanks, Alaska. Heath and his wife Audrey worked the last several months to establish their business in a new location and they had a need for some specialized woodworking. Between the two, it’s obvious that they have a complimentary advanced sense of design and spacial relation. On entering the new studio and office of Focus Unbound Photography, it’s immediately apparen...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #5: Dry Fit!

09-17-2009 01:29 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to plane the stock for the shelves yesterday. I glued up a large enough blank for two shelves, then used the fence to cut them parallel. I then used the cross-cut sled to square the other sides. I got to use my Delta new mortiser to make all of the mortises (3 on each side x 4 sides = 12 total). Luckily, they were all 3/8” and had the same offset from the front/back. This meant that with one setup, I could knock them all out. If I had done them with a chisel, ...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #6: Mortises

07-27-2007 09:59 AM by Dorje | 6 comments »

I spent a few hours today mortising the stiles (of the frame top) for the table. Lots of mortises to do. I drilled the ends of all the mortises first, since it takes turning off the mortiser after every cut to carefully line up the chisel with the score marks at the ends. Then, I could leave the mortiser running and clear out the rest: One down, one to go: There we have it: Next up are the legs – mortises and tapers. I marked them the way shown below, but recalled seeing a po...
