Alternate Drawer Joinery #2: Routing the drawer front

01-30-2010 05:56 PM by DanW | 2 comments »

Now I have the following items.1. Router table with a 3/4” pattern bit installed in the router.2. Drawer front3. Drawer sides4. Router template/jig Using your template and drawer side stacked, adjust the bit height so that the cut is a 1/64” too deep (if I set it flush I end up unsatisfied with the fit) Set the template on the end of the drawer front with the best grain towards the template fence . Then center the front so that the teeth (for lack of a better term) are even,...

Alternate Drawer Joinery #1: Jig creation

01-30-2010 05:33 PM by DanW | 1 comment »

I was watching PBS one Saturday afternoon when Scott Phillips took a trip to a jig creators workshop. The show left me with the desire to create something different (at least different for me). I had been looking at some furniture in a local “Antiques” store, trying to get ideas for future projects, and had noticed a strange joint used to hold the drawers together. It looked like little half moons with pins in them & I wondered “now how did they do that?” Well,...

Double Dovetail Box #4: Cutting The Remaining Dovetails

01-26-2010 03:23 PM by Don | 4 comments »

I didn’t quite get the box assembled on Sunday but I was close. Next step after gluing the corners is to cut the remaining half blind dovetail joints. I thought I was going to have to do a second setup on my jig to cut these like I had to on my Spalted Mango Box but I didn’t. On this box I’m reversing the joints end for end rather than doing a mirror image. Half blind dovetails are actually always reversed end for end like this when cut on an Omnijig and probobly on most ...

Arizona LJ's Picnic #1: Who wants another Arizona Picnic?

01-26-2010 07:54 AM by scrappy | 4 comments »

Hi everyone. Thought I would put out a feeler and see if anyone was interested in another Arizona Picnic/Get together? This would be shooting for the last weekend in Febuary, Saturday, the 27th. Probably at the WoodWorkers Source in Tempe. The same person owns the north store and they treated us real good last November. If interested please post or send me a PM and I will try and get it all organized again. I know there are several LJ’s in the valley and others here getting away from th...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #16: Dressing a slab.

01-25-2010 01:25 AM by degoose | 11 comments »

Here is a few short videos of the Torque Workcentre making light work of dressing a slab of Eucalyptus.. . . This slab was fairly hard and around 16 inches by 30 inches..even though this is a small slab by any standard the principle is the same and as you can see it only takes minutes.. so if the slab were bigger it would still not take any great amount of time to flatten and smooth it…

I was asked about carving eyes in my last project shown http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26334 and answered with a small lesson, It was after most of the members who are interested see already the project and the comment. I assume that more people are interested in this subject so I send it in the blog.I was asked: “On the first side shown, the side with just the head, how did you do the eyes, if you don’t mind sharing. Mostly on carved eyes, I see them carved inward to use shadow to d...
