Arts & Crafts Night Stands #5: Dry Fit!

1798 days ago by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I was able to plane the stock for the shelves yesterday. I glued up a large enough blank for two shelves, then used the fence to cut them parallel. I then used the cross-cut sled to square the other sides. I got to use my Delta new mortiser to make all of the mortises (3 on each side x 4 sides = 12 total). Luckily, they were all 3/8” and had the same offset from the front/back. This meant that with one setup, I could knock them all out. If I had done them with a chisel, ...

Knitting box #6: Twin through tenons

1912 days ago by Luke | 4 comments »

I started by marking out all the cut lines with a marking gauge. I have one of those simple wood pass through another wood with a thumb screw and a little pin, ones… so….I chiseled out the sections in the maple down to the lines after cutting the shoulders with the dovetail saw. I then transfered the tenons to the backside of the zebrawood with the marking gauge again. Then chiseled around the marks and worked on taking out the material with the chisels. A mortiser would be really...

The Non-Electric Chair #13: Making the Chair (Front Frame)

1996 days ago by lethentymill | 4 comments »

I wish I knew more about mushrooms and toadstools; Inkcaps appear from time to time, and rubbery, orange or brown alien things are there in the short grass some mornings and gone a few days later. Wrens are bobbing about outside the window today looking for insects in the bushes, maybe it’s the “flying school” wrens – they’ll be around all winter as they don’t migrate, and in the spring (RSPB website) the males will build several nests and the female will choose the nest she likes best. “W...

Shop Organization #4: Flip Top Planer Cart Part 2.. Doh!

2404 days ago by gizmodyne | 7 comments »

I started today by gluing up the top. Doh! #1I decided to use Dominos for the project and did not pick the right size so I cut all the way through the case. Fix. I decided to use through Dominos for the project. Actually the shelves are held in by through Dominos and a false dado I created by layering plywood on the outer pieces. Glue and staples hold the second layer on. Left to right = bottom to top of side Case AssemblyAssembly is a snap with the Dominos. They hold the p...

Outdoor "Coffee" Table #7: Tapers and Tenons

2570 days ago by Dorje | 19 comments »

This is a one-handed post tonight; I had a bit of an accident, but I’ll get to that… We’ll keep with the chronology. I was able to get back to work on the table after about ten days away from it. My goals were to taper and mortise the legs and to cut the tenons for all top members. Here’s what I was able to accomplish… Tapers cut on the table saw…very slow going and quite a bit of burning: At the bench – I used the #4 set lightly to get the darkest of the burn marks out, fol...

Kitchen Remodel #4: Cutting the Tenons for the Stiles and Rails

2637 days ago by Karson | 3 comments »

Cutting the tenons and fixing the mortises. In an earlier blog I was talking about story sticks and laying out the mortise cuts for the legs. I further stated that in my reply to Bob that: “The rails at the top and bottom have a 1/4” grove cut in them to allow for plywood for the insert. The top rail ended up with a 1/2” cut for the tenons, where it touched the panel, while the bottom one had still the 1/4” cut. Why the difference. ??” Well I found out why the difference. I miscalculate...

Learning Curve #13: Tenons

2668 days ago by MsDebbieP | 9 comments »

I am in the process of building a second plant stand (I thought that I would be done today but the Universe had other ideas.) One thing that I am pleased with is the aging of the pine legs. Rick brought home some 1×2 pine which worked great for the legs but they were too white for my willow. So, I used some “greying” stuff that I bought at Home Hardware. (I’ll have to go look at the name of it). It turns wood a natural- weathered look. With just one light coat and an...

Thorsen Table Challenge #9: An Ounce of Prevention !

2671 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 7 comments »

I was going to draw bore peg the breadboard to the top today, but I had to do some fixing instead.I made the tenons the same length as the plan showed, they should have been longer, so there wasn’t enough material. I was afraid of the peg holes breaking out. You should have about 3/8”, & I only had 1/4”. To remedy this I epoxied some nails across the ends similar to the torsion bar on a guitar neck . After I was all done I thought I could have glued in a wooden...

"PROVIDERE" --by RusticWoodArt #6: Providere's Leg Update....

2676 days ago by frank | 5 comments »

Providere’s Leg Update…. ....and then some! Well this past week has been a busy one for me around here. Started out with a storm on Monday and then we lost power, so the sump pump in the cellar went down and the water level went up….up….and up. Time to break out the gasoline pump and start pumping, old connected cape houses (1778), old dug cellars and bad grading can sure be a problem at times in the spring. What with water run off from spring rains and mud seaso...
