Arts and Crafts Library Desk #2: M & T Frame, and Lapped Dovetails

263 days ago by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

With the legs complete, I milled up some stock for the rails. All joints are deep mortise and tenons, except for the top drawer rail which is a lapped dovetail. -----Test fitting the lower drawer rail.-----The lower side stretchers feature through tenons. -----The upper drawer rail features lapped dovetail joints. With the same dado blade setup used for the other long rails, I cut the dovetail to 1/2” thick, and established the side shoulders. -----After laying out the lines for t...

Arts and Crafts Library Desk #1: Building Legs, Cutting Mortises

268 days ago by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Well after taking second place at the Portland Woodworking Show with the last project, a cherry trundle bed, it was time to start the next project. -----The current project is a small library desk for my son’s room. He helped in the design phase, choosing corbels over spindles for the sides of the desk. We also have a special white oak board with a bullet lodged in it. Caden decided he wanted to incorporate it into the desk. -----I am fortunate to have a stack of 400 b.f. of white...

Router Table Re-do #4: The Table Top

269 days ago by HuckD | 2 comments »

Well, the rain today halted construction of my storage shed so I had time in the shop to make the top for the router table. It couldn’t be much simpler: two thicknesses of 1/2” plywood. They were cut larger than the cabinet base so that I have room to clamp around the edge. I rough cut a rectangular hole in one piece. Then I pinned 4 pieces of scrap to the top around the hole to make a pattern, then used a handheld router with a guide bushing finish cut the rectangle. Afte...

Piper's Folding Table #1: The table, modelled in Sketchup.

277 days ago by pashley | 4 comments »

My friend, Travis Piper, showed me this table he has had since he was a kid; it’s thought to be from the 1930s. It’s very unique the way it folds up when picked up in the middle. I really like the design, shaker-esque in nature. I modeled it in Sketchup. My only change was to the skirt, adding an arch, instead of the mild scallopy profile that is on the original. My rendering’s metal support rails are a bit too slivery; I think I would make them a flat black, if I were to ma...

Radial Arm Saw #1: New Table for my Radial Arm Saw

281 days ago by hjt | 12 comments »

This saw was my dad’s pride and joy. It a B&D DeWalt R1350 built in 1968. The family gave it and many other woodworking tools to me when he died several years ago. I tuned it up and put a simple table on it back then (2009.) I reassembled and built wheels on the stand. Some say don’t use WD40 – use liquid graffite. After I got all done, I read another book the said, never use liquid graffite – ONLY use WD40. The sign “2nd table” I scraped...

Router Table Re-do #1: The Fence

293 days ago by HuckD | 2 comments »

This was supposed to be part #2 but it’s #1. See #2 for the back story on my router table. The first improvement to my router table was the fence. I have a bunch of mdf that’s been in the shop for years so that’s what I used. I know, not the best material for a project like this. But, my fence was a hodgepodge of ideas and I built it with no plans and just guessed at the measurements. IF it doesn’t hold up at least I’ll have a better idea of what I’...

Router Table Re-do #2: What I've been using

293 days ago by HuckD | 0 comments »

Dang, I have parts 1 and 2 reversed in the blog. Sorry, but this was my first time trying to use the blog. I’ve been cleaning, reorganizing and rearranging my shop lately. The latest task has been to update my router table. I thought I’d start this blog with what I’ve been using. This was built approximately 9 years ago and has served reasonably well. I had acquired several metal cabinets from a copy machine company and started with one of those. I mounted it ...
