Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #1: Convert random scraps into end grain boards (cut first - design later)

1725 days ago by sras | 4 comments »

OK. This blog stuff is new to me. I’ve got a couple projects going where I am forcing myself to leave the large stock alone and work with material that ends up getting burned after I have too much of it. I have been using CBdesigner from jayman7. He posted a project on this here. I have searched through blog entries and I think I am using this in a little different way. Another big resource for me has been dewoodwork’s blog on how to make an end grain cutting board. Clearly,...

First Box #6: Almost ready to glue up!

1726 days ago by Bret | 3 comments »

Today I decided that the lock miter joints just didn’t look good enough, especially since some of each corner will be exposed once I fit the walnut panel for the lid. So I trimmed each at the table saw and am pretty happy with the results. I used a different technique for this cut and it worked well enough to keep everything straight & square, at least as far as my instruments can detect. So I then trimmed the lid panel to fit (“panel” seems an odd name for it—...

Christmas Project 2009 #3: Box joint mortise and tenon

1727 days ago by dryhter | 0 comments »

The final fitting of the tenon in the mortise. Once I achieve the perfect fit it is time to make the Box joint within the mortise. Note that the mortise pocket is about 1/8th in. deeper than normal as is the tenon, I believe this simple modification goes along way to help strengthen this type of joint. With the aid of a simple jig the box joint is made. Accuracy and close tolerance work is the key to a box joint’s strength, A machinists caliper is probably the easy way to se...

Christmas Project 2009 #2: Mortise and Tenon of the Game table legs

1728 days ago by dryhter | 1 comment »

In this video I show how I mortise and tenon the legs and aprons. The first step is to evaluate or critiquing the pieces, I feel each piece on it”s own has positive and negative aspects that need to be addressed. Once evaluated the pieces can be shown for the best possible presentation of the project. If you are just starting out in woodworking it is a good idea to keep tract of your decisions to see how they affected the overall project. Evaluating and critiquing is a valuable ski...

Progress is made on my router table

1730 days ago by ryno101 | 7 comments »

I haven’t posted anything about this yet, I expect to have a finished project to post shortly… I’m very excited about the progress I’ve made on this. This is my first cabinet, my first doors, my first drawers, etc. Cabinet is 3/4” MDF, and has been done for months now. I finished the doors recently, but as woodworking for me is all about budgeting, haven’t pulled the trigger on the Forstner bit I needed to mount the hinges. Hit Rockler the other da...

Game Table the legs

1739 days ago by dryhter | 1 comment »

Hey Everybody, Well, here it is Christmas time, and if you are like me, you are contemplating a special Christmas gift. This year I decided to make a Game Table and this first video will deal with fabricating the table legs. The inspiration for the legs comes from Federal style furniture,the detail that caught my eye is an embellishment at the foot of the leg. I found it was not as easy to duplicate as I had thought and it, became necessary to improvise. A couple of jigs solved the d...
