Bunk Bed Build #3: Hand Cut Tenons for the Head/Foot Boards

411 days ago by Mauricio | 32 comments »

Ok, here are a couple of more evenings of progress behind me. I need to cut 16 tenons total to fit the head board and foot boards on the two beds. This part of the project is going a little slower than the earlier parts. But I’m having fun on this part so its all good. I first scribed a line all the way around the shoulder with a knife, then cut the v groove to guide my saw. Sawed the shoulder, with my dovetail saw. I tried Paul Sellers advise here and used this saw even though it is a...

My First Workbench #14: Day 14: Trimming Tenons and legs...

731 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

For all the pictures, please click here. Note: This was supposed to have been posted Saturday the 25th… I wasn’t sure how much time I’d have today to work on the bench so instead of charging ahead with measuring the height of the legs to get ready for installing the top, I decided to do some more mundane tasks. They still are in general preparation for the top, but I just wasn’t planning on doing them first. Before I get going though, I had mentioned yestrday...

Barnwood Countertops #6: Cutting the Tenons & Repairing a Break

964 days ago by spunwood | 4 comments »

I cut the tenons in two parts, as suggested by the popular woodworking video. A. I cut down the lines. I used my dovetail saw, but I am sure there are many ways to do this, say, even with a tenon saw. B. I inserted a pattern bit into my router. I cut and planed down a piece which was the exact width of the tongue. This piece was also just slightly thinner than the depth of the shoulder of the tongue. These dimensions are important for two reasons.1. Getting the tongue right means the...

Workbench #15: Base Mortise & Tenons

1032 days ago by CartersWhittling | 0 comments »

Hello. I have now finished the mortise and tenons for the base and have them all fit. Here are the two base assemblies put together. The assembly closest to view still needs a thin leg installed on its right side. You can see the tenons on top of each assembly which will be going into mortises in the bench top. Here is a view of the leg assemblies from the Roubo side of the bench, with the front legs that will be flush to the bench top side and the tenons that will be mortised into the ...

Workbench #14: Starting The Base

1037 days ago by CartersWhittling | 1 comment »

Hello. I am now working on the base for my workbench. I have changed some of the design details since my first concept, but not by much. The main difference is that the two legs on the Roubo side of the bench have tenons that will go into the bench top. The base was going to attach to the top the way most trestle bases do with bullet dowels, but then I realized that when I use the leg vise, all the pressure will be placed on the dowels! So I redesigned the front legs so that they have a tenon...

Karen's Table #1: New Saw

1367 days ago by Safetyboy | 4 comments »

My new tenon saw arrived the day before Thanksgiving… just in time to try out on the tenons for my sister’s table. Never had I hand-cut tenons before – I always did them on my tablesaw with a dado blade – but these stretchers were really too long to do that easily for me. So I dived in – and surprisingly, everything went together pretty well: The saw is a 16” Wenzloff & Sons, and I have to say, despite the old “it’s not the arr...

Trestle Table Desks #2: Additional Mortising, air control, mortiser lube, A-Town apron

1384 days ago by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

The second run of mortises is in the legs. The tenoned rails will surround the juniper panels. Rather than squirt the air after each two holes, I looped a hose clamp around the air gun and trigger and used a nut driver to control it. (Nut driver is resting on the screw for the photo only.) It didn’t take much air to keep the work area clean. It was easier to get a bore – slide – bore – stack flow going when there was no interruption to work the air. The mortis...

No electrons were harmed during the building of this table. This was great fun and even more affirmation of the time I spent building my workbench. Enjoy the video.

Extremely Average #13: Dumb Mistake

1685 days ago by Ecocandle | 17 comments »

It just makes me so darn angry. The life I have led has been one of logic. I am the son of a mathematician and much of my adult working years have been spent as an analyst. When I make a dumb mistake it grates on my nerves worse than finger nails on a chalk board. Now I don’t have delusions that I am going to progress in woodworking mistake free. Quite the contrary, I see my mistakes as an opportunity to learn. I have learned a lot. The angst I am feeling come from not only makin...
