Building a Dr. White's Chest #7: Raised Panel Doors

478 days ago by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Raised Panel DoorsBuilding a set of raised panel doors might seem like a daunting process. However, it’s simply a sequence of steps that, granted, use most of the tools in a serious hobbyist’s wood shop. Wood movement is an issue here since the panel grain runs perpendicular to the grain of the top and bottom rails of the door frame. Watch this video to see how to build a raised panel door in one 25-minute video. This blog entry also includes links to eight individual videos that highligh...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #2: Multiple Mortise and Tenon Joints

483 days ago by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Multiple Mortise and Tenon Joints I’ve owned a Leigh dovetail jig since the early 90’s. I started with the 12” model that I used for drawer construction. I switched to the 24” model so that I could join the top of a case to the sides with a through dovetail joint. I bought the M2 multiple mortise and tenon attachment for the 24” D3 jig prior to building a book case that was to hold a tremendous amount of books. I wanted more glue surface and strength than a rabbet joint could pro...

Routed Sign Making #1: Routed 'Sign Making Class'

988 days ago by 3DBMe | 13 comments »

We’re going to use a Dremel router to make a sign with recessed lettering. I suggest barnwood because of the contrast between the weathered surface texture and ‘fresh cut’ letters. I also have enhanced the letters by burning (pyrography) the edges of the letters for increased readability. Of course you can scale up to larger routers if you chose. Stock: Barnwood 2”x10”x24” Suggested material and dimensions Safety: Goggles, F...

Getting the most from my router #1: About the author

1715 days ago by TemplateTom | 22 comments »

Introducing Template Tom the name I was given by my students when giving lessons on the use of the router at the Association for the Blind woodworking group. I was asked to look after for a year after I had been doing some volunteer work for three years previous. The best Class I have ever taught. Average age of the group was 36-82 years of age. A little back ground to consider as it helps to know ‘Who is making such a post’ I began an apprenticeship in Carpentry and Joinery wa...
