Jigs and techniques #1: Cheap & Simple Mortise Jig

05-03-2010 04:29 AM by GregD | 2 comments »

What should be the first entry in this series is my really simple table saw panel cutting and edge jointing jig. This is my my take on a mortise jig for a plunge router. I wanted to keep it as simple to build and as inexpensive as possible, but I also wanted it to produce good results for a rookie because I was going to use it for my first attempt and a M&T joint. Now that I’ve verified that it works well, I’ll probably add a toggle clamp or two for holding the work. T...

Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

Start your own woodworking business

04-27-2010 05:12 AM by Hisingwooddesign | 1 comment »

Check this out at www.hisingwooddesign.com I have been woodworking for about ten years as a hobby and recently have been thinking about the idea of starting my own woodworking business. What would you recommend? I have little business experience and have never owned a business of any kind. Do I need to go to college or take a course or some kind of training. Any advise would be appreciated. Well Donald that is a great question. As far as I’m concerned college courses and other higher ...

From wood butchery to wood workery #3: Getting closer without doing as much - that measure twice cut once stuff works!

04-25-2010 03:55 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

So I’m on to the next project for my wife, a set of benches to fit around one nook of the back patio. After some discussion we settled on three benches, two approx. 5 foot and one 7 foot (Hurricanes here in Houston, when we get ‘em we turn the benches over so they present a low profile behind the brick wall). I set up the design on Sketchup, then started the build. A few things to note: First, I replaced my old cross-cut sled with a new version. It’s simpler, sits...

Skills Building #2: Clock Project - Mortise & Tenons galore

04-19-2010 08:59 PM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 3 comments »

They say that there’s nothing like practise to make you better at a skill. My cousin’s wedding is in June, and I decided in my new wood working glory to make a wedding present for them. After consulting my wife, we decided that building a clock would be a nice gift. So I spent some time searching the project archive here on LJ’s, and around the web. Saving pictures to the hard drive so that I could go back and forth to choose without having to bookmark the various pages t...

Work flow and adopting tools

04-18-2010 04:50 AM by sawblade1 | 2 comments »

Hi there fellow lumber jocks This week has been an interesting one for me I spent all week moving my shop around to accommodate two new tools a 1960’s craftsman radial arm saw and a 1977 Delta/Rockwell jointer:) All I can say is well thought out tool placement will keep you safe from falling into the same trap I did after a well thought out plan or so I thought, after doing two Adirondack chairs and a footrest I found out my plan wasn’t going to work to well :( My advice to ...
