  1. FIRST HALF-BLIND DOVETAILS

    I had some drawers to make, and they ended up being a few firsts for me: -First half-blind dovetails (hand-cut) -First traditionally constructed drawers (half-blind dovetails in front, full dovetails in back, drawer bottom in grooves in front and sides, sliding in under the back (see picture)...
  2. Simple walnut end table with drawer

    This is the third walnut end table I've made, the first without epoxy inlay, the figure in the top was nice enough without any added decor. I used my new dovetail jig when I constructed the drawer (sides and back are oak) and gave it half-blind dovetail joints. It's very easy to use, another way...
  3. 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...

  5. Walnut Jewelry Box w/ Monogram Inlay

    This is a project that has been in the works for many months. I started it in April, but it kept getting bumped by other projects as my attention span is brief! I used methods that I haven't used in the past much for the experience. I used half-blinds for the carcass and miters for the trim...
  6. A Box Called "Necessessity"

    Did you catch the misspelling in the title? Just like how the extra "ess" in "Necessessity is extraneously unnecessary, everything about this box is excessively overkill. Look at how thick the teak frame members are. Unnecessary. Look at the dovetails at three corners of the frame...

    I have a Leigh D4 24" dovetail jig and am wondering what bits I can use. The manual is great and has charts showing exactly what Leigh bit should be used for different joints, material thicknesses, etc. Can I only use Leigh bits with the exact dimensions and angles, or can I use off-brand...

    Porter Cable Dovetail Jig Joinery Continuing the Lesson's Learned Theme: I used mitered joints for my Mom's jewelry box that I completed last weekend. Moving on to my wife's box, I decided to up the level of the craftsmanship and use half-blind dovetails to join the box sides. I went to my...

  11. 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...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Good morning: I am thinking about making exterior shutters for my home to replace the louvered shutters that are currently up. My current shutters have seen better days. I would like to make the louvered style of shutters but have been unable to locate plans for free or to purchase which...
