08-12-2009 12:13 PM by degoose | 58 comments »

Hi guys ,, I had a request to make a tutorial with regards the endgrain Tumbling Block Design.First off,.., You need to decide the size of the blocks…. for this example I used 1” stock… Or something similar.. actually just over .. once dressed. Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

Finishing Process of Interest #1: Chemical Ebonizing

01-07-2015 01:36 PM by pjones46 | 4 comments »

A while back, I put together a set of links of random finishing topics which I posted in my blog, called Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5. One of the links listed coved the topic of Chemical-Ebonizing as I saw an interest from some concerning the procedure, so this is the time to single out that process. This process does not use dye, ink or paint, and can be carried out quite easily. As a matter of formality follow proper safety precautions such as wearing safety glasses, hand prot...

Flat Panel Wainscotingg #3: The Room Goes 'Final'

10-16-2014 04:55 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 21 comments »

I filled the gap at the top of the south wall with MDF scrap to get to the cap rail, then built up a moulding profile as best I could. Not the best work I’ve ever come up with, but I’ll shoulder the responsibility. Had to get it done and stop the analysis. The baseboard was needed as well, but I didn’t take pictures of that prep. Tonight it was installed, as last night was a night of cutting and fitting and painting. One design element my Dad noticed in the inspirati...

Adirondack Chair Class #14: Final arm assembly and putting the chair together

03-16-2012 01:43 AM by Betsy | 6 comments »

So now comes the very fun part the chair is actually coming together. First you have to decide if you are going to use pocket holes to put the arm together to the back rest. I chose to use pocket screws because it’s one less thing you have to make disappear with a plug on the front of the chair. I place my Part F onto the bottom of the back rest and mark one center location on each of the 4 skinny slats and three marks on the center slat (1” from each end and 1 in the middle). You don’t...

Adirondack Chair Class #13: Cutting the laps and shapes.

02-26-2012 11:14 PM by Betsy | 2 comments »

This part is a little out of order, but I found this next little blurb in another class brochure I made and thought it would be good to add in here. A half lap joint is a very basic joint, but it can be a very strong joint to connect two pieces of stock if done properly and in the right situations. The joint makes an intersection of sorts of the two pieces of wood. This intersection can be at the end of a board, in the middle or anywhere in between. I’ve seen half lap joints that are angle...

Adirondack Chair Class #12: A side lesson - My Tenon Jig

02-26-2012 12:53 AM by Betsy | 2 comments »

Before we actually get into cutting the lap joint itself, let’s talk a little about my tenon jig. This jig is a pretty good addition to any shop. It’s quite easy to make from just a few scraps laying around. For this project you’ll need a tall face, and a board the exact width of your table saw’s fence. Here are some shots of my jig. You’ll need a piece of track, a knob and a holding device to act as your securing device. You can buy the track at Rockler or Woodcraf...

Adirondack Chair Class #11: Arm rests part two

02-19-2012 02:54 AM by Betsy | 4 comments »

So now onto the lap joint for the arm assembly. Both part K and F have a 3/8 lap joint. Both together make the assembly. Part K’s lap joint is on the bottom and part F is on the top. That’s an important point to remember. Before I cut my arm to shape I cut the lap joint. Here’s why. As I am sitting in the chair the right arm can be cut against the miter slide. But the left arm, if already cut out must be flipped over to cut the lap joint. To safely cut the left arm i...

Adirondack Chair Class #10: Arms rests

02-11-2012 07:05 PM by Betsy | 2 comments »

This is part one of the arm assembly – it’s picture heavy – so fair warning. This is the pattern for the arm (part K). You’ll notice I have already drilled pilot holes for where the arms will be screwed to the front leg (part I) and arm support (part J). At this point you need to remember that you have both a right and a left arm. You are using one pattern for both arms, therefore you have to flip the pattern over to make the second arm. Here’s a bad idea...
