Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #4: Apron Frame & Front Rail Joinery

02-04-2016 07:51 PM by jeth | 4 comments »

Hello all (echo,o,o,o) several hundred “reads”, no comments, so either you’re all riveted to your seats awaiting the next installment, or that’s several hundred open page, scroll down a bit, go read something more interesting. Not wanting to leave this half way through I shall proceed with the upper aron frames and front rail joinery. The apron panels were to be framed with pieces of leopardwood. Here you can see the top pieces which are grooved to fit onto a rabbe...

Refurbish, Reclaim or Reject!! #1: Picked Up and Old, Early Disston today. Is it too far gone?

02-01-2016 01:50 PM by Dex378 | 4 comments »

So I went to my local salvage/resale store today looking for anything cool they might have up in the tool section. After rummaging through all the junk I found a complete postwar Stanley #4 bench plane for $3.00, some halfway decent rasps for $0.25 each, and few other odds and ends. As I was leaving I decided to dig through all the hand saws they had jammed in an old slop sink. After going through about 30 of them I came across an early Disston. I looked at it for a little while and the handl...

Cutting Tenons with a Router Table Sled [w/bonus DIY dust collection]

06-29-2015 01:42 AM by Greg Guarino | 1 comment »

I don’t have a table saw, nor do I have the skills or tools to cut tenons with a hand saw. So I came up with this idea:... a sled that moves the work over a 3/4” router bit. It’s got a movable stop to set the length of the tenon. It works decently, although I have found that since I need to make several passes, each pass – somehow – ends up the tiniest bit different in depth than the others. The difference is truly tiny, just enough to see the “seamR...

2x4 Bunk Bed Build #3: Drawbore mortise and tenon

Well in part 1 I went over cutting a tenon. Part 2 included how to chop the mortise. This time grab your drills and a few dowels as we pin the mortise and tenon joint together. This is as easy as eating cake, without all the calories. View on YouTube

Cherry File Cabinet #1: Milling frame and joinery

12-19-2014 10:34 PM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since my last woodworking project, so I’m easing back into the groove with a new file cabinet. I have a piece of junk tin cabinet in my home office that squeaks every time I open and close it. I did some serving trays in Cherry, and really liked working with it, so my new file cabinet will be Cherry. I found a photo online and liked the style so I sketched it up in Sketchup and AutoCAD. The legs are 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” and the rest of the frame is 1&...

Mini hand tool cabinet #5: Front and Back Panels

10-17-2014 10:27 PM by JSOvens | 0 comments »

Time for another update on the mini hand tool cabinet. These may start to come less frequently, since I am now involved in multiple Christmas Time projects as well (all of which I will post either in the Blog or at the very least in the Projects area early on in the new year). With all of the cabinet sides made, the next step I took was to make the panels for the back and for the door. My original plan was to find some 1/4” plywood for the panels, but I was enjoying using solid pine ...

Loose Tenon Jig

10-14-2014 08:37 PM by Mauricio | 9 comments »

I recently made a stone top table with Mortise and Tenon Joinery. I was thinking of making more of these tables, also ~3×3” legs with 1.5” thick aprons would make some pretty sweet work tables out of construction grade pine. Normally I would simply use a router and edge guide to make the mortise, then cut the tenons with a combination of hand tools (to cut shoulders) and bandsaw for the cheeks, then cleaned up with a router plane. However since I want to make multiple tables I figu...
