Christmas Gifts #5: 2018: Oak & Laminate TV Trays

01-25-2019 07:34 PM by HandyHousewife | 1 comment »

So the other project that we attempted at the last possible second for a Christmas gift was a pair of TV trays for my sister in law and her husband.

Doweling made easy

I recently discovered a new and better method for doweling my woodworking projects.

I’m so close! The clamps are holding the oak backer board on … which is holding the mirror in place. The top oak trim cap is just sitting there. The bottom trim cap was a no-show on photo day. It looks suspiciously like the top piece. BUT … I’m almost done! The trim blocks (the four corner pieces that surround the frame) are glued on. I’m going to run the top and bottom edges through my jointer, along with the top and bottom cap pieces … just to ...

01-21-2008 08:47 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

I was considering using dowels to help hold my boards together for my benchtop; specifically, those boards that are a little extra bowed. However, Matt of Matt's Basement Workshop has informed me that due to the considerable strength of face-to-face gluing, that dowels might not be necessary – even for bowed boards. However, just in case, I decided to make a simple jig following Matt’s suggestion, which was:Two pieces of wood, one attached to the top of the other to act as a...
