Summer Joinery Entry Shaker Cabinet #3: The quest continues, Were getting close now.

07-28-2007 06:02 AM by Karson | 11 comments »

Time to turn my attention to the back. The locking mortise and tenon had been designed and it was now time to cut the mortises in the sides of the back. They were marked thru the holes in the sides and tape placed on the back to give the ends of the mortises. Using the horizontal router table. A view from the side. All of the wedge key tenons were made long so they are now being cut to the appropriate length minus 1/8” to allow for the back to move. And cut the wedge tenons to the co...

Building The Holtzapffel Workbench #3: Update on the base

02-04-2008 01:52 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 11 comments »

I had a few hours to work in the shop before the Super Bowl started. I was able to hog out all of the mortises. The router and drill press combination worked out really nice. I had time to clean out the mortises in two of legs and fit one of the small stretches into the mortises. So far the fit is working out pretty well. I still have a little more tweaking to do on some of the shoulders, but over all not too bad.

ebay pick: vintage tenon cutters

10-18-2013 04:45 AM by emart | 11 comments »

After having to cut all the tenons by hand on my shaving horse i decided I never want to do that again and when i got paid for a quick welding job I picked these up for $65 including shipping. As far as the age and manufacturer of these tools i have no clue all I can tell is they are most likely cast iron. Here are some photos of them after I spent a couple hours cleaning them up and getting all the stubborn screws free again: I’m half tempted to replace the machine screws ...

Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests #2: Leigh FMT Jig - Part 1

05-16-2007 08:37 AM by David | 11 comments »

Had a great day today working in the shop. I have gotten behind on my schedule for the cherry quilt chests because of some family isuues and increased work load. Today was a warm and sunny day in Portland and it was a pleasure to get out in the shop and make some cherry sawdust! I thought it would be fun to make a small video to share the experience. The original video was too long so I made a two part episode. I figured you guys would be the only ones that could actually sit and watch a rout...

Extremely Average #15: I have just two questions

01-17-2010 12:57 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment” -Jim Rohn I thought I would spend the day continuing to work on my Krenov saw horses, since I didn’t have any new DVDs or books on woodworking. For those that stopped by hoping to see a rant about John Lively’s company The Taunton Press, you will be disappointed to know that I am too happy today to gripe about their inefficiency. Because Monday is a holiday, I won’t get them be...

Cleaning a tenon up

01-31-2012 04:51 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 10 comments »

Well after going almost 2 months without doing a video and almost 2 weeks not being in the shop, I figured I would get some work done and while in the process shoot a short video. Well sadly my shop light burnt out and I have no bulbs for it, but I did get the video filmed before the light went out. Enjoy it and as always, all comments (good, bad, or terrible), tips, and tricks are welcome. Thanks!

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #1: An Ambitious Endeavor

08-07-2017 11:02 AM by Ron Aylor | 10 comments »

An Ambitious Endeavor –  As you may recall I set out two years ago to build Prie Dieux for the four priests at St. Bede’s Episcopal Church in Tucker, Georgia. This fourth Prie Dieu in the series, being built for the Rector of St. Bede’s, may very well prove to be my most ambitious hand tool endeavor to date. I will be attempting a Louis XIII/Elizabethan-ish  style Prie Dieu in walnut and Ambrosia maple. There will be some firsts for me with this project, like the gadrooning,...

My Pegged Joint Experiment

05-27-2007 02:08 AM by David | 10 comments »

I am fascinated with the mortise and tenon joint, as well as, frame and panel construction. The most current issue of Fine Woodworking set me off on a path to add pegged joints to my frame and panel quilt chests. I like the look of the peg and appreciate the extra strength and longevity that a pegged joint will add to my projects. WATCH THIS VIDEO FROM FWWDrawbored Mortise and Tenon - FWW Video - Matthew Teague The Pegged Joint Exposed - FWW #191 pgs 38-45 - Matthew Teague I am still...
