Making boxes with dovetailed splines without a Kehoe jig #1: Dovetail spline jig and splines

06-16-2010 11:06 PM by Toolz | 9 comments »

The first thing I did was to make a simple jig for cutting the dovetail in the mitered box sides to receive the splines I tried cutting the splines on my router table with a 1/2” 14 degree dovetail bit I used to cut the dovetail slots in the box side. Too many problems for me doing this plus it was a scary experience even using a “small parts jig” to hold the pieces. After re-reading the responses to my questions posted here yesterday http://lumberjocks.com/topics...

If the vase is going to hold water as well as flowers then an opening is necessary.

Bathroom Vanity Mirror #5: Chopping Mortises

06-12-2010 05:09 AM by mpmitche | 1 comment »

Tonight I finished off my mortises. I have been away from the project for quite a while and watched one of David Charlesworths’ DVD’s from Lie-Nielsen in the downtime. The DVD was about working with chisels and he chops a mortise in there somewhere. After watching the video I tweaked my approach a little and it helped immensley. The first mortise I did took about 40 min. Some in the middle were a little quicker. Tonight I got a more accurate job and it took about fifteen min...
