Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #18: Clamping Cauls, Finger Joints and Square Plug Stock

07-24-2017 03:39 AM by TungOil | 10 comments »

In preparation for the glue up of the angled joints in the two bases, I make up some special clamping cauls. The cauls allow me to position clamps to pull the mortise and tenon joints together parallel to the tenons. The cauls have a 60 degree block glued to them to complement the 30 degree angle of the joints. Each has a piece of sandpaper glued to the back to prevent slipping. There are 6 large cauls for the lower stretchers and two small ones for the top stretcher. To check ...

Vintage Mission/Arts & Crafts style finishing technique on White Oak

Don’t fear, I worked ...

I’ve been making some gates for my house. Here’s a link to a project I posted a earlier. Here’s the drawing. the gate is roughly 6 ft tall and 4 1/2 ft wide. So it is a rather large gate. While the back gates, made from inland red cedar, came out fine, I wanted a more refined look for the large front gate leading to our house. After calling around, a small lumber dealer “Southwest Lumber” in Albuquerque, NM suggested I consider Spanish cedar. So I h...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #8: Cutting the Corner 45 Degree Angles

03-11-2013 04:58 AM by Boxguy | 22 comments »

A Quick, Accurate Way To 45 Your Corners If you build boxes at all, eventually you tire of cranking your blade from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and back…I did. So I built this simple jig, and now I can cut all 8 ends of a box accurately in about 5 minutes, AND STILL LEAVE MY TABLE SAW SET AT 90 DEGREES. Assumption: I am assuming that you have already laid out the board for your sides and have cut all four sides of your box to length. Short side, long side, short side, long side...
