Houndstooth Dovetails

11-30-2008 03:23 PM by Woodhacker | 27 comments »

Houndstooth dovetails use varying sizes of tails (or varying sizes of pins…depending on your perspective). I’ve wanted to try them for quite a while now. This blog shows most of the process I’m currently going through. To get the effect it seems to me you need more tails/pins per corner than one would normally think about. In this case like a few of my other recent boxes posted, I’m using Caribbean rosewood and curly maple. Most often, (when you see them at all) these are done by alte...

Radial Dovetail Box Construction

10-18-2008 11:15 PM by Woodhacker | 18 comments »

Some time ago I posted a blog about a dovetail joint I came up with. I call it the radial dovetail. It incorporates handcut dovetails, but rather than using the traditional 1:8 ratio for the dovetail angle for hardwood, each side of each tail varies and is drawn from a perspective point. Then the sides of the box were contoured to blend with the dovetail design. Here’s a picture of the nearly completed box. It is made of curly maple, Carribean rosewood, and hickory.I like to think of t...

Handcut "Radial" Dovetail Experiment

07-27-2008 03:40 AM by Woodhacker | 11 comments »

I’ll call this a radial dovetail (for lack of better name). This is a practice handcut joint for a future keepsake box. It’s curly maple and Caribbean rosewood. My initial thought was to have all the sides of the dovetails in the maple point to one common perspective. However, during layout I quickly found out some of the angles would be far too severe, putting the integrity of the joinery at risk. Thus I used two perspective points for this joint. Note there are four tails in the...

My Cockatoo

01-01-2008 10:36 AM by Allison | 4 comments »

**Aaaah My cockatoo, The pattern came from a stained glass pattern book I had once. No credits here however as I know longer have the book. Stain glass patterns are a different place to look for patterns and I have found quite a few interesting ones however it is more like doing segmentation with these patterns instead of intarsia. I love this one though because it is made out of curly maple (not the cheapest wood around) given to me by a neighbor of my fathers. And the brighter yellow actua...
