  1. Marking Gauge Dovetail Practise Box

    Hi guys, Nothing too special. I am still trying to get proficient at hand cutting dovetails so make opportunities to keep cutting them. This box was more dovetail practise - I just decided I may as well build a box while I was at it to hold my marking gauges - there is a spot reserved in the...
  2. Tool box

    I saw this in a magazine and wanted to make it for my step son, he told me he would rather make it with me so we made two. This is mine, I am trying it as a box to hold my carving tool. This is the first time I tried hand cut tails and I learned a lot. We had a great time making them. Hand...
  3. Phase 2 of workbench completed

    Earlier this year I completed a split top roubo style bench. The next step was to make a chest for my tools that I would attach under the bench. I have never dovetailed before so I chose these methods so I could learn some new skills. I loosely based the design on a shaker style chest on FWW...
  4. A set of Night Stands

    I finished these Night Stands a while back, and decided to start a new Bedroom Suite based on them. The night stand is built with Black Walnut with secondary wood being soft maple. I used half blind dovetails for the drawers made with my Leigh Super Jig. My Next Piece will be through dovetails...
  5. My router fence got schizophrenia

    Hi LJs, my workshop has a resident with a serious mental disease… My router fence acts like a dovetail jig. Wait a minute. It is. At least some sort of. OK, I'll play along. I give it a dust hood. (photo 4) Now it sucks. So much that my hands are freezing after using it. Joking aside, I had a...
  6. Cherry and Maple Half Blind Dovetail Box

    This box started life as practice for half blind dovetails for a drawer in a different project. It was my first time doing half blinds but all four sets turned out great so I went on to the actual drawer. The practice box sat around my shop until the day before our family Christmas get together...
  7. First Plane Project, inspired by Mafe!

    This is the first plane I have attempted. I got inspiration from Mafe, and his wonderful work. I had an old and dry piece of oak batten in the store doing nothing, so I thought I would try this. I rushed it, so it is a bit rough around the edges, and elsewhere! I didn't spend enough time...
  8. Fir Dovetail Box

    This is the 2nd box i've made in my life time. The wood is reclaimed from Ballpark bench seating (there was a lot of frustration in the "reclaiming" process). Since i used 1/2 blind dovetails i cut the dados on my table saw. The rough cuts for the box were done on the table/band saw and final...
  9. Walnut/BirdsEye Maple Sliding top dovetail box

    This was another box made of BirdsEye Maple and Walnut. It was made completely with hand tools. Dovetails aren't perfect but it was fun.
  10. Ring Box

    I wanted to make something for my wedding to hold our rings. The thought of using a pillow, like everyone else does, seemed lame to me. In addition, a wooden box will probably live longer than me and maybe my family will appreciate it someday in the distant future. Materials for this project...
  11. The Entry Table

    This was a pretty simple personal project I recently completed for my home from maple, plywood and southern yellow pine. I knew the casework would be painted so I wanted to highlight the maple as much as possible. I selected a board with some figure in it and allowed the grain to run across the...

    Day 3 Assemble the Bench & Install Vises Day 2 The Top Takes Shape Day 1 Building the Base I'm going to try to blog a bench build project over the next 3 days. All the materials, equipment, and supplies have been acclimating in the shop for about a month, and I've lined up friends to help...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am currently looking for a Woodtek flap sander owner to test a product I recently invented and have a patent pending on to align the brushes and flaps prior to reassembly of the flap sander head. It was built and designed for the Grizzly model and the Woodtek model looks nearly identical...

    Half-Blind Dovetails on Curved Parts A few folks have asked me what I have been up to lately in the shop, so I decided to post a quick video blog, that I shot yesterday, before I head out for the long weekend. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving! Here is the video
  15. Jigs & Fixtures
    I have long wanted to get deeper dovetails and a 14 degree angle with my PC 4210 jig. The bit that comes in the kit is 7 degrees, with a 3/8" depth of cut. The standard dovetails have such a shallow angle they almost look like box joints. After consulting the manual, I learned that when...
