Boy's Cherry and Walnut Dresser #7: Filling in the Blanks

2115 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 9 comments »

One of my favorite features of the top, is actually technically a defect—a quarter-sized knot hole. While both my wife and I agreed that it added “character” to the top, I couldn’t simply leave it as it was; it was large enough to swallow up small objects whole and naturally not very stable. After some searching, I found a few references to folks filling holes like this using “Pour on” epoxy, of the type you might use to encase small chatchkis in a bar t...

Boy's Cherry and Walnut Dresser #3: Gluing up the Carcass

2153 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 5 comments »

The Day Begins I started the day by marking out and cutting the slots for the biscuits into the inside faces of the sides and back. Following this, I decided to “rehearse” the glue up of the main carcass—the sides, back and bottom front apron. After yesterday's "flip" I have to admit to being a bit apprehensive about this step, but, lessons learned, I was watchful of the sides and never came close to dropping one this time. The green tape you see is there to protect the l...

Boy's Cherry and Walnut Dresser #2: Legs shaped, sides assembled and Ouch!

2155 days ago by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

Construction begins… In between trips to the zoo, the Children’s Museum and backyard “play dates” with the kids, I’ve logged some decent shop time on this project the past couple weekends. Last weekend I dimensioned the lumber and assembled the two cherry and walnut frame-and-panel sides. Due to a misaligned rip fence, I wound up with a mortise and stub-tenon joint that simply wouldn’t close. I decided to lop off the tenons and attach the rails to the st...

Router Table #6: Cast(ers) Away

1658 days ago by PurpLev | 23 comments »

Not much done today, had time to install the casters. had to go the lowes for some lag bolts (5/16) as the casters did not come with it. I found the casters on eBay for a fantastic price. it’s sold by SES Casters which are here in Massachusetts. total price was ~26 including shipping. they may not be red and shiny – but they are soft, heavy duty, and work fantastic! I highly recommend this seller by any means. I installed 2 swivel casters on the front of the table, and 2 non...

Projects #4: John White FWW Workbench - Planning and Milling

2553 days ago by Jeff | 21 comments »

This is my interpretation of this cleverly designed bench by Fine Woodworking’s shop manager, John White. There have been a few mentions of this bench on the site and I have been eagerly anticipating having the time to build my version of the bench. I’ve had the lumber for about a month but had to sacrifice time in the shop to get our condo ready for sale this summer. Those preparations are all behind KT and I now and I can finally work in the shop when I want to. We’ve h...

Joinery #1: I've got a haunch about these tenons.....

1460 days ago by Rob Bois | 12 comments »

This is a recent blog post I did covering the haunched tenons for the cabinet doors for a six-leg sideboard I am building. This is actually episode 9 of probably about a dozen, but this one stands well on its own since it covers a common joint for basic but strong cabinet doors. I have traditionally used cope and stick joinery for most of my cabinet doors, but this particular design does not call for any molding detail on the insides of the rails and stiles, so I figured I might as well use...

Mastering the Mitre Joint

1466 days ago by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

This woodworking tutorial features the mitre joint. If you’ve done carpentry or woodworking there probably was a time or two that the mitre joint was a challenge. This video shows how the mitre joint can be cut and fit with great accuracy, done safely, and with ease by using a mitre sled on the tablesaw. What if you could take your wood projects to another level? Now you can. You can feel comfortable cutting one mitre or hundreds of mitre joints as the mitre sled method ensures ac...
