Horizontal Router Table

06-19-2007 02:10 PM by John Nixon | 19 comments »

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing and making a video for the MLCS horizontal router table. In this video, I show how to make Mortises and Tenons easily on this machine. Also covered in the video is raised panels, crown molding and custom molding. The machine is nice, and definitely as some advantages. Making raised panels or molding is similar to the action of using a jointer. You are passing the work over the bit with downward pressure. It feels much safer than standing it on it...

Radial Dovetail Box Construction

10-18-2008 11:15 PM by Woodhacker | 17 comments »

Some time ago I posted a blog about a dovetail joint I came up with. I call it the radial dovetail. It incorporates handcut dovetails, but rather than using the traditional 1:8 ratio for the dovetail angle for hardwood, each side of each tail varies and is drawn from a perspective point. Then the sides of the box were contoured to blend with the dovetail design. Here’s a picture of the nearly completed box. It is made of curly maple, Carribean rosewood, and hickory.I like to think of t...

Woodworking with Sketchup : Drawing a mortise and tenon

10-01-2010 09:20 PM by smgaines | 10 comments »

I’ve been traveling a lot for work so I haven’t been able to get into the shop much lately. So what better to do when you’re sitting in a hotel room in Altus, OK than create a couple of google sketchup videos. I’ll release them over the next week or two. Thanks for watching.

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #22: Cutting the Joinery for Your Table

01-16-2012 03:57 PM by RGtools | 14 comments »

First off since you are working on furniture…clean up your bench. Sweep it off and put the tools away. This may seem odd since you are going to take the tools out again but it’s not, you are going to pound on your work quite a bit during this process. Chips left on your bench get wedged under your work and dent it. Sweep your bench off and keep it clean. I put all my tools away after each joint is made to fit, this speeds things up because you are not fishing for tools you thought...

A Bed for the Princess #1: Design Concept

06-10-2008 03:25 AM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

So for a very long time I have been planning to build my daughter a bed. I have been reading anything I could get about bed construction (I really liked “Anatomy of a Bed” from Fine Woodworking), checking out different beds for design concepts, and construction methods, and have been mentally practicing building it for the longest time. so I finally came up with the following design. frame is all Maple, joinery is Mortise & Tenon and headboard/footboard panels are planne...

Building My Roubo Bench #8: Attaching the Stretchers to the Legs

02-19-2012 10:16 PM by Andy Panko | 1 comment »

I had thought that I previously finished the legs (except for mortising for the stretchers). However, after visualizing how the top would mate to the legs, I realized I needed to adjust the tenons on the two legs on the left of the bench. I’m going to be putting the left legs flush with the left edge of the top. I don’t want to be able to see the tenons from the side of the top when the project is complete. Using the table saw, I notched the tenons on the top of the legs so th...

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #14: Mortise and Tenon

10-19-2011 04:20 AM by RGtools | 30 comments »

Mortise and Tenon Before we start on our table, we need to take the time to make a few practice joints. The oldest and strongest joint out there is the mortise and tenon. It’s also the only joint used in this occasional table. I wanted to make a set of bents to show you this but the hickory I had on hand developed quite a few cracks that kind of killed that idea for this weekend (a total drag for me because I really wanted an excuse to make the bents). On the other hand it’s...

The Restoration of a 14" Tenon Saw #1: Identification, Historical Evidence and a Vivid Imagination

10-02-2011 04:36 PM by Brit | 27 comments »

In this blog series, I’d like to invite you to join me on a journey of discovery as we look at the history and restoration of an old English back saw. This is where the story starts… I really wanted one of these (Adria Large Tenon Saw 14”x 4”) …but didn’t have enough of this: So over a number of weeks, I trawled through eBay.co.uk, until I finally found and bought this… The saw plate is 14” long and the saw is 18 ½” overall. It has an iron back and is...

How to finish a log bed? No, Really...How do I finish it?

05-02-2011 06:22 PM by robbinscabin | 31 comments »

Since we’ve started a business, North Country Rustics (find me on Facebook) we’ve been very busy but we’ve also tried to take our projects to a new level. We’ve made several log beds (eventually, we even began making the bed frames from log~even though I wimped out on my son’s bed) but we are currently working on our first log bed for sale. The queen sized bed is really our best work yet but we’re stumped when it comes to how we should finish it. We re...
