Popular Woodworking Magazine (who have the rights?) is that really ok?

02-18-2011 09:00 PM by mafe | 67 comments »

Popular Woodworking Magazinebe careful with readers contributions, ‘Tricks of the trade’. Hi LJ’s. I have an experience I want to share with you; unfortunately I can’t say it was a good one, but not the end of the world either… All of you, who know me here on LJ, probably know I’m not a complaining kind of person. Some months ago I was contacted by Popular Woodworking Magazine (PWM), they asked if they could bring one of my posts here on LJ in the magazi...

Trestle Table #46: How Should I Finish This Table Top?

11-24-2016 07:25 PM by HappyHowie | 6 comments »

If I was to start over with selecting the finish coats for this table, I would not use Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO). I do believe that it has gone on okay. I am satisfied that the BLO has done what it can. However, the blotchiness on the table top does bother me. I believe as the cherry ages that the blotchiness will dissipate, if not disappear in time. However, I know there is not a guarantee about that result. My options from here are (1) continue to apply more BLO, (2) spray some Shella...

Hardwood Store

01-12-2016 02:56 PM by HappyHowie | 6 comments »

Yesterday I went shopping for hardwood. In this state I am only aware of two hardwood lumber stores: MacBeath Hardwood and Intermountain Wood Products. At MacBeath’s the customer can walk into the storage area and pick out anything that fits his fancy. It is different at IWP. There you state what you are there to buy, then a fork-lift operator will take your list and will bring out a pallet, one species at a time, so you can select the boards you want. Then he will make another t...

Trestle Table #32: Table Top's Bevels Cut with Circular Saw Cutting Jig

11-03-2016 11:28 PM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

Today I completed making the circular saw cutting jigs. I have one jig that is 60 inches long for cutting the 45 degree bevel of the sides of the table top. The other jig is 36 inches long for cutting the 30 degree bevel on the ends of the table top. After fixing the fence to the top of the jigs with screws, I then cut the bevels with my Rigid circular saw. Once I had the jig trimmed to the saw blade with that angle, I was able to lay the jig on the top side of the table top and alig...

Trestle Table #47: Added Second Coat of Danish Oil

11-30-2016 05:56 AM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

I like how the cherry hardwood is reacting to the coats of Danish Oil I have applied on top of the three coats of Boiled Linseed Oil (BLO). I will check tomorrow if this table needs a fourth coat of Danish Oil. So far what I have applied looks great. If anything else is required it will be a good buffing of Briwax furniture wax.

Roll Around Tool Cabinet #5: My Plan for Tomorrow: Wednesday January 25

01-25-2017 04:27 AM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

What is the plan tomorrow? Well, here is my list which I will report on after the day’s work is done. 1) Sand the face frame then glue, pin and clamp it to the carcase.2) Make hardwood plugs to fill the countersunk screw holes, glue them in place.3) With a scrap piece of poplar test the saw blade height of 3/8 inches for cutting the center grooves on the poplar frame pieces. And, then cut those center grooves. First, centered on all parts and then with the rip fence adjusted, wid...

Rocking Chair: An Online Course #15: Loose Tenons: Festool Domino or Mortising JiGs

04-03-2016 07:11 AM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

While viewing the rocking chair instruction, Tom McLaughlin stated that he used a three-slot router bit to make his mortises on the chair’s back legs and the corresponding rockers and crest rail. That method was used for his first rocking chair. However, when he went to Tommy Mac’s Rough Cut show they used instead Tommy Mac’s Festool Domino mortising machine. They cut the mortises with his machine and then placed Festool’s loose tenons in them. Festool calls these ...

Trestle Table #12: Next Steps: Cut Tenons Using Twin Blade Joinery Method

09-17-2016 09:37 PM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

I began work in my shop this morning by squaring up the corners or ends of these router bit made mortises. As you can see I have an Irwin Marples 3/8” or 10 mm hand chisel as well as a Robert Sorby mortising chisel in the same size 3/8” or 10 mm. For this blog entry I am writing what I plan to do next instead of writing briefly what I did in my shop. Maybe this way I will be more thorough and clear of what my steps will be. I subscribe to Woodcraft Magazine. I lov...

Trestle Table #28: Angled Mortise Cut in Thru Tenon

10-31-2016 03:25 AM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

Today I setup my 8 degree sled up on my drill press so I could drill small 1/4 inch holes in order to make the mortises in which the wedges will hold the legs tightly together. I clamped the stretcher to the sled and then aligned the mortise hole under the drill bit. Then I clamped everything down tightly. The mortise will be made where the XXXs mark the spot. You can notice the 8 degree angle marked on the sides of the tenon for the mortise. Since my drill bit was not very long I had ...
