Handtool Basics #5: Who is the KING of the Butt Joint?

01-22-2018 07:58 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Hey Guys, I did a quick little deep dive into the ins and outs of common butt joint techniques. I looked at biscuits, Mortise and Tenons (both hand cut and machine cut) Festool Domino Floating Tenons, and the Kreg Jig. I broke down how long it takes to make these joints, how consistent they come out, how easy and repeatable they are, and how strong each joint is. I break down (with lots of data) how much they cost in both money and time invested into each joint from the perspective of a...

Behind the scenes of my shop and YouTube channel #8: Special visit by LJ's own Doc Savage!

10-15-2016 01:35 AM by CharlieK | 8 comments »

View on YouTube Last week I was lucky enough to have LJ’s own Doc Savage visit my shop. Of course I put him to work while he was there!! All kidding aside, it was nice of him to stop by and we had a really nice visit. Anyway, I shot some video of him while he was here and included it in my most recent shop update. Among that and other things, I also discuss having a little trouble with a minor upgrade to my Festool Domino. Check it out and...

Shop Made JIGS #8: Slot Mortiser with Toggle Clamp Blocks Completed

05-14-2016 04:34 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

My new shop-made slot mortiser is ready for a test cut. Yesterday, Friday the 13th, the carrier delivered my two new toggle clamps. I drilled the holes for them in the clamping block and installed them. For now I will leave both assemblies on the one large plywood base. I am considering separating or cutting the base so each assembly can be separately clamped to a table when in use. Having the bases separated will make it easier for me to store this large and heavy JIG. I may build a ...

Cabinet of curiosities #4: Face frame

10-08-2013 11:51 PM by Porcupine | 0 comments »

For this blog entry, Amelia asked me (Joe, AKA Daddy) to describe the process. Here goes: The face frame for the cabinet is to be mitered on the corners, which are fastened together with loose tenons placed by the Festool domino. First, I ripped cherry to width on the tablesaw. Second, Amelia got to have some fun. She used my late grandfather’s beautiful craftsman miter box to saw 45 angles on the corners. What a wonderful way to honor his legacy! Third, I used my festool domin...

Festool Domino #1: Working with the Festool Domino

04-09-2012 10:06 PM by MJCD | 3 comments »

I’m hoping this blog is not ‘another run through’ of the Festool Domino. I’ve started a project that is at the far limits of my skills, and am making it more difficult by using my new Domino, rather than either standard biscuit joinery or Pocket Screws – either one of which would be acceptable for a Router Table. For my part, I’m trying to approach each project as if it will be used to define my skill level at some point in time, regardless of whether it is...

Puppet Theater #3: Building the "Wings"

12-13-2010 12:10 AM by Patrick Jaromin | 5 comments »

Now We’re Getting Somewhere The front came out so nice, I’ve updated the design to include frame-and-panel side wings instead of plain edge-banded cherry ply as I had originally envisioned. It’s been a busy couple of weeks and there hasn’t been much shop time available, but I’ve scraped together enough hours — usually after bedtime — to finally cut, shape, and assemble the side panels (the theater’s “wings”) and prop the whole thing up. Now w...
