Furnishing a Sauna Suite #16: Capturing a Shelf Inside Tapered Legs

04-02-2021 09:53 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Lots of Other Projects I set the sauna furniture aside to work on other projects. I built a similar table to this with a drawer for my step daughter as a wedding present, configured my wife’s new fishing kayak, and made some modifications to the fishing configuration for my Wood Duck Double kayak I built last year. With those projects completed, I’m in the home stretch of completing the sauna suite furniture. Cutting Shelf Mortises I’ve made four of these tables a...

Reaperwoodworks #4: Desk Caddie...where did that come from?

Chain mortiser

05-18-2011 01:53 AM by Loren | 4 comments »

Here’s a chain mortiser I picked up recently. These things aren’t too common these days, except for timber framers who use portable ones that clamp to the beam you want to cut a mortise in. This is an older model stationary mortiser with a 2 HP 220 volt motor. It’s very powerful and can hog out these through mortises in a 2×4 in about 20 seconds. The mortise this mortiser cuts is too long for cabinet doors, but it will work well for full-sized doors and for heav...
