A while ago I picked up a wonderful 1961 craftsman table saw for a fair price. It came with a bosch router & insert, biesemeyer fence & its pretty much ready to work. I added a pair of link belts & tuned in the blade a bit. I also posted a little video tour the day after I got it home https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqgxtkxpnpwI am going to finish the out feed table & post a pic or another video in a few weeks. I’m happy with it.
I started by my project by opening the book to the materials list. Then grab a board of oak and cut it down to make the rales.
In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...
Got my first table saw this week got it put together right before work havnt had time to play yet but I’m pumped!

Hi all I have purchased some beautiful Red Cedar and am going to try my hand at some larger joinery work. It is really lovely timber and was a very good price as the timber yard sadly is closing. This was a bundelled mixture of boards and pieces; The main piece for the top of the unit The larger boards I have cut in half and put through the thicknesser to get some lovely bookmatched boards to work with; I have sized four pieces for the legs and marked out the sha...
Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...
My woodwork seems to have come to a grinding halt, unfortunately my car needs major work on it, which has bit deeply into my finances, so woodwork is confined to using what wood I have in stock for the time being, not ideal, but I have a string of medical appointments coming up, so maybe it has come at the right time…if there is such a thing! A couple of days ago, I decided that it was time to make a medicine cabinet for the house, I had some plywood sitting about waiting for a proje...
I wanted to add some tapers to the lower portions of the legs. I made a sled to cut the tapers. I know there are adjustable jigs out there. I didn’t have time to research it fully. If I need the same jig later I may have to readjust things. I cut a test piece. All looks good. Here is the first full size leg cut with the jig. Here is a dry fit view. View with taper and bow-tie. Looks like I intentionally placed the bow-tie there. Here is a dry fit of the upper corb...
Here is a video I just finished on Center Keyed Box Joints. One of the harder things about box joints is getting an equal sized key on both the top and the bottom. Here I show how to get equal sized keys regardless of the height of your board or the width of your dado stack. It is a really cool way to do the joints and the result is as decorative as it is functional.
