Hand Chopping A Mortise Tutorial

10-23-2009 09:22 PM by stefang | 67 comments »

I described how to hand chop a mortise in a recent comment. Another LJ member asked if I would do a blog with photos on it. I learned this technique some years ago from an article in Woodworker’s Journal by Ian Kirby a master English woodworker who immigrated to the U.S.A. Some time ago. His method is quick and accurate. I hand chop mortises when I have so few to do that it isn’t worth the effort of setting up my mortiser attachment to my combination woodworking machine and/or ...

Band Saw Sled - 60 Degrees

07-27-2012 10:59 PM by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

The 60 degree band saw sled as seen in the woodworking video is made from scrap. It took 15 minutes to build from scrap material. As you can see, it is used when cutting small wood pieces for wood inlay banding & parquetry. What kind of band saw blade is being used? ...Wood Slicer – 1/2”, skip tooth, 3-4 TPI. It provides an excellent cut. Can a 60 degree sled be used on the table saw? ...Yes, of course. In fact, my shop is equipped with one as well. Why do you use ...

Marie's Table... A Marquetry Adventure #9: A Couple of Chevalet Videos.

07-28-2012 02:22 AM by shipwright | 29 comments »

A couple of segments back Rance asked in a comment if I could do a close up of the chevalet making a cut. I gave it a try today. This is the best I can do with my cheap camera and my cheap tripod but it actually shows the cut reasonably well. The cut itself is not very good because the camera was in my line of sight and in my way. Also I normally cut further down in the vee of the jaws but the camera couldn’t see in there so I’m cutting a little higher. CAUTION: BORING !! u...

Marie's Table... A Marquetry Adventure #6: Oooooh, Nice Legs!

07-25-2012 11:18 PM by shipwright | 33 comments »

Ok, next step is to get some leg blanks out and prepare them to accept the ringed balls. This was just a matter of dimensioning some big leaf maple of which I have a nice stock and routing half holes on center in all the halves before gluing them up. Here are the pieces all ready to glue up. And here they are all glued up and fitted with the balls to check for fit and alignment. In this photo I’m using my Veritas radius-master to create a high precision curve pattern for t...

I Converted !!

08-02-2010 04:28 AM by dustbunny | 10 comments »

From one of my earlier blogs, you may know that I have a Grizzly 24” dual drum sander, an awesome Craigslist score. The original sander comes with felt on the drums an you roll the paper onto it. I have been doing this since I got the machine. I find the paper likes to wander then tear. I have even had assistance in getting the tensioner as tight as I possibly can, the paper still likes to roam. Last May when I went to Grizzly tent sale, I ordered the hook and loop conversion kit for...

Easy. Elegant Wooden Box Hinge #1: I could kick myself

06-23-2011 07:26 AM by shipwright | 61 comments »

A few months ago I spent many many hours trying to perfectly align a set of “box joint hinges” for my project ” A Little Cabinetree” After I finally got them working I installed them on the edges of the MDF sides and doors and then veneered over the whole works. The only good part was that there were enough left over prototype parts that I could make a hinge for my next project from the cast-offs Then this week I was making a tea box for a friend and when...
