Hand Cut Double Dovetail Experiment

2218 days ago by Woodhacker | 74 comments »

After admiring the double and double-double dovetail joints that are capable with the Incra and other jigs, I started thinking, “Why not try this by hand?” So this box is my first experiment with handcut double dovetails. It took me some time to figure out the joinery process, but once I realized a few things about this type of joint, it seemed do-able. It was quite challenging but also a ton of fun. It also does take some degree of patience and precision…which I’m still working on. In...

Houndstooth Dovetails

2067 days ago by Woodhacker | 27 comments »

Houndstooth dovetails use varying sizes of tails (or varying sizes of pins…depending on your perspective). I’ve wanted to try them for quite a while now. This blog shows most of the process I’m currently going through. To get the effect it seems to me you need more tails/pins per corner than one would normally think about. In this case like a few of my other recent boxes posted, I’m using Caribbean rosewood and curly maple. Most often, (when you see them at all) these are done by alte...

Demilune table tops #1: Making Demilune Tables

2568 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 27 comments »

As you may have guessed, I make many of these tables. The practice is needed, and the combinations of woods make it very interesting. These were all made from the plexiglass templates shown. By using these templates, I can make these tops very quickly. I also have other shapes that are more complicated, which I’ll post at another time. Lee

Wood Source: Is your wood legal?

1068 days ago by BarryW | 23 comments »

I found an article today on the internet how Gibson Guitars was raided by the DOJ. I thought maybe it was illegal workers, income tax, something other than what the article was about. Illegal wood. It was a complete shock for me. If they are raiding guitar makers….and to raid Gibson you know it’s a show raid to make as much publicity as possible….then it won’t be long when woodworkers are going to have to prove where the wood they use for projects will have to b...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #15: Cutting rings for bases.

1665 days ago by degoose | 20 comments »

For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...

Celtic NOT - a journey

950 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 19 comments »

This is the blog of how I built Celtic NOT. The design is one of a recent series of overlapping circle designs. Originally there were two possible patterns These are the original paper models. As you can see the more complicated of the two had an interwoven line on the sides of the box as well. I eventually decided this pattern looked a bit too busy and opted for the simpler of the two. The box was going to be Oak with Sycamore and Walnut stringing. I initially tried making t...

Just a video of me and the wooden beard and hair combs that I make.

38 days ago by BTimmons | 16 comments »

I met a local videographer and had a blast shooting this video! It’s more of a general overview of me and how I got started doing what I do. A step by step tutorial it’s not, but I’m extremely happy with how it came out and I think it’s just really cool to see myself working in the third person! Hopefully you all enjoy this too! Thanks, here’s the link! http://vimeo.com/98821147

Radial Dovetail Box Construction

2110 days ago by Woodhacker | 16 comments »

Some time ago I posted a blog about a dovetail joint I came up with. I call it the radial dovetail. It incorporates handcut dovetails, but rather than using the traditional 1:8 ratio for the dovetail angle for hardwood, each side of each tail varies and is drawn from a perspective point. Then the sides of the box were contoured to blend with the dovetail design. Here’s a picture of the nearly completed box. It is made of curly maple, Carribean rosewood, and hickory.I like to think of t...
