Thanks Mr. Neil, pretty slick trick with that mirror. Jig to. My chair making adventures haven’t made it that far yet. Ill save it for future reference though. I’m still perfecting the mule eared side chair process. Rung and post in general. Got a video of that? been looking haven’t found a free one yet. I don’t own a lathe, I use dry wood, a draw knife and a table saw ( I make do and be inventive).

Yes sir got a good router, table is my first home made one needs an up grade but I’m working on that. How do you make them with a router table? While you’re own on here, I’m going down to visit Ed Lebetkin this weekend What’s a price range on a decent dove tail saw?

With out doing a video, you take a square piece of stock, lets say 3/4 sq, then you use a 3/8 round over and run all 4 sides, staying just a slight hair below center, so the bearing has some thing to run on, then you drill a 1/4 piece of plate steel with a 3/4 bit, and drive the rung thru it and you got it .

hey home made is my style, as long as you have a straight fence and a push stick your good to go,

Thanks, you just cant beat the ingenuity of a good ole southern boy can ya, or any American for that matter. I added a question to my previous post. Thanks again sounds a lil bit safer than my ts method and less waste.

Well that depends on whether you want a eastern, ( Japanese) or a western , the eastern saws cut on the pull, the western cut on the push. As to price I really dont know, I just got 3 eastern saws, as a gift, I havent tried them but will .

Daughter reading over my shoulder who likes doing the Facebook and you tubes says i need to do a short video on making the dowels, maybe !!!!

Drop me a pm with your email address, I maybe can help

Do a YouTube search for making dowels. You should find several different ways of making dowels in the home shop.

Charles,

You have the ability to make it simple. You are my main mentor! You mention chairs and I really appreciate the DVD you di on ”Basic chair making” although it is not that basic. I give credit to you on jigs I’ve posted here that I originally observed you make. (With my little twist…LOL)

This is another great jig.

Thanks Big Dog! :<)

Has to be something specific at your end. Works just fine in Chrome for me.
