• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #11: Panel Risen

11-18-2017 10:06 PM by Ron Aylor | 34 comments »

Panel Risen –  To check my math one more time  I did a quick dry fit … I think it’s starting to look like a Prie Dieu!                 Now … time to start raising this panel. First I cut saw kerfs for the various steps in the profile …                 … then using a 1/8” chisel I removed waste to create the first step-down.                                 Readjusting the kerfing plane and repeating the process, I created two  step-downs. I used a bench plane to hog out most ...

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #14: Mortise and Tenon

10-19-2011 04:20 AM by RGtools | 30 comments »

Mortise and Tenon Before we start on our table, we need to take the time to make a few practice joints. The oldest and strongest joint out there is the mortise and tenon. It’s also the only joint used in this occasional table. I wanted to make a set of bents to show you this but the hickory I had on hand developed quite a few cracks that kind of killed that idea for this weekend (a total drag for me because I really wanted an excuse to make the bents). On the other hand it’s...

Building my Workbench #8: Chisels be Cryin'

04-03-2017 11:49 AM by HokieKen | 29 comments »

OMG, I am horrible with this blog huh? Swaps been over for awhile now slacker…..I need an update. - ki7hy Fair enough ;-P I really hadn’t made any progress since the last update other than getting the end vise installed and drilling my dog/holdfast holes until last week. I did have a couple of days last week that I got good time and I got my legs all milled and got the tenons cut. So now I’m marking out and cutting my mortises. At the rate I’m going, I’...

To Domino or not to Domino

05-13-2007 09:42 PM by Bill | 29 comments »

Ok, so I am sitting here weighing the costs of some tools. On the one hand, the Festool Domino set with dominos, guides, and a dust collector for approximately $1300. On the other hand, I need a table saw and a planer. The money for the domino would likely cover these items. Which way do I go? The Domino would allow me to do mortise and tennon joints much more easily than now. It would have the greater flexibility of positions, large sizes, etc. compared to the mortise machine. But ...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #19: Drawbore Assembly

01-28-2013 09:15 PM by Mauricio | 27 comments »

Hello again folks. Here I am in the home stretch. I say that but I know there are still a bunch of details left. I decided to go with drawbored Mortise and Tenons with no glue. The splayed legs on this bench make it incredibly stable as is so it’s not necessary at all. I also won’t have to worry about glue not curing well in the cold weather. The idea of not watching the clock during glue up is pretty nice to, especially on an assembly his size. The hole stress free thing is true in the...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #18: Ambitious Endeavor Realized

02-01-2018 10:06 PM by Ron Aylor | 24 comments »

Ambitious Endeavor Realized –  I did it! After 426 hours, my ambition became a reality. Once the eight part door panel came together, all it needed was stiles and rails …                 Sorry for the bad photo … when they say do not shoot photos with the sun in front … I guess they mean it! With the stiles and rails cut, mortises and tenons cut and fitted … it was a quick clamp up to drill for pins …                 … and I had a door … whew! Before inserting the pins, I dyed the walnu...

Horizontal Router Table

06-19-2007 02:10 PM by John Nixon | 19 comments »

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing and making a video for the MLCS horizontal router table. In this video, I show how to make Mortises and Tenons easily on this machine. Also covered in the video is raised panels, crown molding and custom molding. The machine is nice, and definitely as some advantages. Making raised panels or molding is similar to the action of using a jointer. You are passing the work over the bit with downward pressure. It feels much safer than standing it on it...

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...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #17: The Door Panel

01-27-2018 11:01 PM by Ron Aylor | 18 comments »

The Door Panel –  Now for the really hard part … an eight piece door panel. Having measured the rough opening in the upper case I created a full scale drawing …                  … and positioned it inside the opening to double check the proportions. All is well. Now I just have to duplicate the drawing using eight little pieces of wood. Tools don’t fail me now!                 By making this panel first, I can take up any slack within the stiles and rails. By design the stiles and...
