Chest of Pine Drawers #11: Dovetails?

07-18-2018 03:06 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ah yes, the old debate….Tails first..vs..Pins first…...Dungeon Shop goes Pins first. So.. My bevel square. There is a small combo square laying there as well. bevel is set to the angle I use for dovetails(need to write it down, sometime..) Where the groove comes through, one side of the pin is straight. Covers the groove. Then I work from each edge towards the center, laying out a few pins. had two backsaws to use, one was the “Veteran” and the other was...

Bath Stool #8: Rounding and learning

05-07-2018 04:35 PM by Diego Cassels | 4 comments »

Tusk through tenon!! The name is common but its the first for me. I scratch a line to have a reference to drill, then squared it with a chisel. The key was made with the same wood, “quebracho colorado”. Hard to fit but the en result looked good to me! Then I ronded the seat corners with a router and lots of sanding. LOTS!!! I had to do a dry test, the photos don`t do it justice! Here you have a closeup of the tusked tenon. Well a touch there and another over t...

Shop Notes #17: Experimenting with Black Acacia

04-13-2018 04:05 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Some time last year, a local lumberyard cleared out the last of their black acacia for dirt cheap. The lumber wasn’t great—lots of splits and narrow pieces, but for the price, it was worth a gamble. After a few months in the shop, I finally broke out a couple of boards to make some beer flight paddles and a wine rack or two. For the paddles, I wanted to create a flat-bottom surface for the tasting glasses. Boring a partial hole with a forstner bit would leave a score around...

Composer's Desk #1: Composer's Desk - blogging the project

03-07-2018 09:36 PM by nickbatz | 0 comments »

I was having these made by a shop out of solid oak or maple for over a decade, and all along I wanted to develop an affordable version. Then – spurred on by someone actually offering money :) – I figured it out: make it myself, and use nice oak plywood and high-quality Douglass fir dimensional lumber instead of solid oak that brings the materials cost up to about as much as this whole thing sold for! Based on posting pics on Facebook, I now I have two more “commissions...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #6: Ring Tray and Smaller boxes

01-20-2018 02:26 AM by cowboyup3371 | 2 comments »

I have repeatedly said one of the best things of this project is that my eldest daughter and I are spending time together working on it. Unfortunately the extreme cold weather we are having has done a number on her health causing pain in her chest and overall discomfort. As such, she is unable to work in our shop for very long which has created a major damper on that time. So today, I took her out to Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s wood shop so we could build her portion of the pro...
