Building a Dr. White's Chest #9: Turning Knobs

05-12-2013 09:37 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

I like to turn the knobs on the cases I build. Dr. White’s chest has a total of twelve knobs. I’m not a skilled turner, but that hasn’t stopped me from building a lot of furniture with turned parts. Turning a batch of knobs that is “identical” could drive a turner to another hobby. However, it’s not too difficult to turn out a batch that matches “close enough.” Remember, this is a handmade project and hand-turned knobs scream craftsmanship. Watch this video to see how I turn out the kno...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #7: Raised Panel Doors

05-06-2013 11:24 AM by DustyMark | 2 comments »

Raised Panel DoorsBuilding a set of raised panel doors might seem like a daunting process. However, it’s simply a sequence of steps that, granted, use most of the tools in a serious hobbyist’s wood shop. Wood movement is an issue here since the panel grain runs perpendicular to the grain of the top and bottom rails of the door frame. Watch this video to see how to build a raised panel door in one 25-minute video. This blog entry also includes links to eight individual videos that highligh...

Hand tool tips and tricks #8: Waste Removal on a Through Mortise.

03-06-2013 02:07 PM by RGtools | 14 comments »

This one is almost stupid, but it happens to still be helpful. On a through mortise you can center your work on a dog hole and some of the random chips will fall through it rather than get jammed into the bottom, where you will have to extricate them later. And Now…a bonus tip!!! When test fitting a mortise and tenon joint take care not to snag anything important… You have been warned and so have I. Cheers, Ryan

How-To Make Log Furniture #1: Carve a Tenon on a Log Clamp

01-30-2013 09:37 AM by ScottShaeffer | 2 comments »

I designed a log clamp to hold logs that are too big for the lathe. My friend, Mitchel Dillman over at Colorado Rock*N Logs fabricated it for me. See how to use it to carve a tenon in this video! Please visit my website and FaceBook Page. Thanks!

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #19: Drawbore Assembly

01-28-2013 09:15 PM by Mauricio | 27 comments »

Hello again folks. Here I am in the home stretch. I say that but I know there are still a bunch of details left. I decided to go with drawbored Mortise and Tenons with no glue. The splayed legs on this bench make it incredibly stable as is so it’s not necessary at all. I also won’t have to worry about glue not curing well in the cold weather. The idea of not watching the clock during glue up is pretty nice to, especially on an assembly his size. The hole stress free thing is true in the...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #20: M&T Work on Panel Doors, with Video

01-23-2013 03:31 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 40 comments »

Began work on the upper doors of the Wall Hung towards the end of Episode 19 by creating a bead detail on the right door while telling you of a rebate needed at the left door. No pics cutting the rabbet, but the center stiles come together just fine. All four stiles for the upper doors were cut to rough length and grooved for floating panels ‘too long ago’ to remember… The rail boards were measured and marked for their rough cuts; those are the pieces t...

Workbench in the Making #1: Making the plans

12-23-2012 02:34 PM by Matt Nudi | 9 comments »

Well, here it goes. I posted in the forum about getting started on some hand tools and thought it was time to get started on the most important tool of the shop, the bench. There are a few design constraints on this project, namely, I have to be able to bring this thing back at least in pieces in my Toyota camry from Raleigh to Charlotte, but I’ve always enjoyed a challenge. Anyway, I’m going with the standard mortise and tenon design. I was sick of constantly looking at my cra...

Split-cutting tenons

09-20-2012 05:09 PM by Paul Sellers | 15 comments »

I thought that this new YouTube video we did on split-cutting and pare-cutting tenons rather than sawing them would help others to experience an alternative that works really well on most any wood type. I have done it this way for decades now and just realised that I hadn’t shared it as widely as I would like to. Try it in any wood you like and see how it works for you. Some woods, Sapele, ebony, mesquite and such, may not always split straight, but it shows how to cross-grain pare as a...
