    Hello, Some friends are interested in a dining table and like the color and character of walnut, but not the price. Any suggestions for a wood that would look good with a walnut stain? And, for that matter, any finishing suggestions? Thanks all.

    Im building a tv console out of thick (1 1/4 inch) Alder. The corners of the cabinet are joined using large through dovetails. The jig I made to cut them left the dovetails rounded on the inside. The original plan was to use a chisel to square them out, but now I'm thinking about leaving them...

    My Incra LS17 super system was delivered yesterday. Assembly does not look to difficult…we shall see. I am confused re which bits will be required. Should I buy the Whiteside 6 bit Incra starter set or am I better off buying one bit at a time. I have numerous straight bits but they are not...

    Ok - I've spent a lot of time trying to learn to cut dovetails by hand. I could probably make a small tree out of all the cutoffs and little socket pieces that I've made. So now its time to dive into it and make a real project, a box, of course. Now here's my problem - I've been cutting and...

    I spent the weekend cutting dovetails for bookends I'm making as Christmas gifts to my kids. As this is only my second attempt at making them (first was for a drawer that is still holding up pretty well), I have some questions. Although none are perfect, I think most turned out okay except for...

    A traditional finger joint is strong because of all the glue surface it creates-but here's a thought. Would it make the joint stronger to drill a hole and run a wooden dowel down through the fingers? or for that matter, what about using a brass rod or a screw? Thought someone out there may have...

They both have poplar sides and maple lids, but one has paduk accents and the other purple heart. With a walnut 'key'. My dovetails could...

    So, after watching Rob Cosman use a saw blade to transfer the tails to the pinboard, I made this appliance to make it easier to get the offsets right. It is designed so that the tail board is offset to the left in relation to the pinboard when transferring one side of the tails. It is then...

    Any thoughts on these kitchen cabinets? I can't tell if the dovetails/finger joints are real, or ornamental on a fake door front and not actually connecting anything. Any thought on how to make this would be appreciated.

    Starting from Scratch Today I had my first real shop time since Mothers Day. I finished my wife's box just in time to give it to her, but I still hadn't put any finish on it. So today I started by putting on the first coat of oil/varnish/mineral spirits. Once I did that, I figured I'd start...

    Hand cut box joint Since I am not able to be in the power tooled shop, I'm twiddling away in my spare bedroom doing hand tool stuff. Having never hand cut a joint, and after trying a dovetail, without really knowing what I was doing - I decided to back track a bit and do a simple box joint...

    The Original Incra Jig while working and designing my router table I noticed that there are no Incra Models on Sketchup 3D Warehouse at all. I do not have any of the LS positioner systems, and would have liked to have a 3D model version to incorporate into my design and see how it would work...
