Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #7: Mortises Three Ways

08-21-2016 01:41 PM by EarlS | 0 comments »

As I mentioned in the last entry I broke the mortising into 3 groups. The big mortises were made using templates and a router. Most of the smaller mortises were ¾” which were made using a ¾” Forstner bit and squaring up the holes with a corner chisel. Some what tedious, but a sharp chisel makes quick work of it. Any square holes that were ½” or smaller were made with a mortising attachment on my drill press. There are some serious shortcomings in the Delta Morti...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #6: Big Mortises

08-14-2016 01:15 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

All of the leg pieces have been cut to length and marked for the multitude of mortises and tenons. Before I get into the details of what I did, I wanted to talk about options for cutting mortises and tenons. I spent a lot of time researching some of the new options on the market. I really wish I lived near a wood working store that had demonstration tools to look at and maybe even try out. The Festool Domino looks like a biscuit jointer on steroids, with a special router bit mounted h...

Building a quick cheap and easy steam box

08-11-2016 03:37 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

I needed a steam box to steam bend a walnut handle. The last time I, steam bent a handle I just threw it in a contractor bag and pumped it full of steam. This worked OK but by the end of the steaming process the bag had started to melt and it turned into a bit of a mess. This time I decided to build a proper steam box, but lost interest because I hate shop projects, I’d rather be building furniture. Instead, I built a down and dirty steam box. If you would like the deep down detai...

Life happenings #1: What a load

08-04-2016 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Making use of things other people have no use for. There is a sawmill about an hour away from me. It is run by some Mennonites and they work hard making harvesting and milling logs into what we are all here for. Beautiful boards and timbers with which we use to make our projects. But there is a lot of the tree that is just not useful for sale for this purpose. What to do with the waste? Well in this instance, I heat my home with it. All the slab wood and off cuts are offered up for s...

Toy Chest Build #2: Making the curves and glue up of the panels

07-07-2016 09:24 PM by 7Footer | 3 comments » Part 1: Thanks for watching, I hope you like it! Disclaimer: I’m not sure but I’d imagine there will be some Safety Sally comments about the placement of my stop when I’m cutting the tongues. Please trust me, I’m comfortable and know the limits of my saw and I respect it, in this situation it was acceptable because I was taking off such a small amount of material
