I have done videos in the past about how I handle hand cut dovetails for drawers, so for this current project I decided it didn’t make much sense to just highlight the same techniques. Instead, I focused on several challenges I faced with this most recent set of drawers, ranging from some tricky grain to sharpening fatigue. This won’t teach you how to build a drawer, but you might find a few tips you can apply in your shop.
<div> Click To Play </div> Yo whats up everybody in this episode I talk about tablesaws and which one to buy this is not a review I am just talking about types like contractor saws.
I don’t know who thought up this one, but I thought I would share it. My house is a 1920’s Craftsman bungalow, and in adding to it, I’ve put a lot of effort into keeping the original feel with 5 panel doors, all stained to match the original architecture, and all the other trim. In staining a full sized 80 inch high door, I drill holes in the top and bottom and put in a lag bolt in the top and bottom and then pivot them on the ends of sawhorses. The lag bolt is kept in ...

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task; but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” – Helen Keller Deadlines are a necessary and driving force in what I do. Whether they are self-imposed or called upon by others, they are the foundation of my business and give it structure and continuity. In a perfect world, deadlines would present themselves in an organized and methodical fashion, one by one with clear starting points and st...
Just pushing a method I have practiced and throwing it out there to see what your feed back is.This is what I do and why in regard to most panel doors I manufacture.To me the doors on a side board, or any cabinet with doors around 600mm x 450mm do not need to be heavy. I try to keep the weight down in the styles and in the panels. My panels sit just under flush with the styles and are 14mm thick. The styles are normally 20mm thick. That way I can sand the panel before assembling the door an...
I’ve been wood working for a few years now and during that time have found enough wood to fill my shelves and bins to their capacity. I have a moderate hobby work shop in my garage with a bit of inventory. I estimate about 1800 bf of wood and 30 different species at present. I’ve purchased lumber from commercial stores specializing in wood working (very expensive) but sometimes you want or need what they have, over the Internet from a lumber wholesaler in Victoria BC (less expensi...
I love my shop. The power tools, the hand tools, the padded luthier workbench, and the integrated dust collection. Especially the dust collection. One point of frustration however, is the relatively limited storage space. And so I’ve had to find spaces in every crevice and corner, and install shelving and hooks around the wood-paneled walls. A particularly frustrating problem was the lack of convenient power and dust collection on my main workbench/tablesaw outfeed table. The rout...
