How to Cut a Dado Joint with Hand Tools

08-22-2014 12:58 AM by WoodAndShop | 1 comment »

How to Reverse a Woodworking Clamp

08-19-2014 03:24 PM by WoodAndShop | 5 comments »

In my above video I share a eureka moment that I had when trying to apply reverse clamping pressure against the walls of my dovetailed tool chest. The original blog post is here.

Last time I posted on that project I was steam bending my mouldings. The columned were veneered in a previous post.

It is uploading at the moment so go see it later if you are interested in learning how to veneer columns, we are pretty proud of it. The columns were turned with groves to allow for black rings.

They look more like fancy sword edges than turning tools – and they u...
