  1. Bar anyone?

    We had a custom house built about 3 years ago and had this space close to the kitchen that was just screaming for a BAR. Looked like a great project for me but the bar would be attached as an extension to the kitchen cabinets. Had to match the stain and make it look like it belonged. Was able to...
  2. Live Edge Walnut Slab Desk

    Hey Guys, I have been working out of that closet for a while now, and it was time to build myself a big boy desk, and I had to "do it big" as they say/ So I grabbed a GIANT American Black Walnut slab and well…waited. I knew I wanted a giant dovetail waterfall side, sort of inspired by Jimmy...

  4. Wall Clock

    The sawmill owner that I used to visit in North West NJ, used to throw me pieces of wood that he likes but he knew that he'd never sell as part of his business. He cut mostly for farm buildings, trucks floors and other types of work. He did have a kiln so some furniture grade lumber was...

    I will be making thru dovetails in 5/8" stock. This is my first time using my Peachtree dovetail tail jig that I purchased many years ago, but never opened until recently. My test joints have gone well in both 3/4 and 5/8" material. I am making tool tray with a very similar design to my Jay...
  7. Woodworking Skill Share
    I was at Jamestown VA this past week and saw this period trunk. The photos are of a dovetail technique I have never seen. It may have been common for the time, but I can't picture how it was done. Anyone ever cut theirs like this? Were they trying to increase glue surface?

    Hi All, Trying to make these Through DT's is going to be the death of me yet. As you can see from the attached, the Tails are too proud and too short, making the Pins appear to proud and too short. How do I get these Tails down to size? Or if making the Pins shorter and longer, how is that...

    Greetings, Hope everyone is well. I am attempting to make some small boxes ( 5" x 5" x 6") using a Porter Cable 4216 Dovetail Jig. Whether making Tails or Pins, after the first pass for the second routing on the same piece is the board only rotated 180 degrees or rotated 180 degrees and...

    The Wood I mentioned recently that I felt like actually making something before working on my bench. What better project for my beginner skills than a simple dovetail box? I haven't waded through the loads of plans online for boxes, so this plan of mine might not work. Let me know what you...

    Sketchup Model I had been planning on entering the LumberJocks Halloween Challenge. Anytime the prizes are given away randomly, instead of based on skill and craftsmanship, I'm all over that! But my wife didn't particularly want me spending a lot of time in the shop merely for the chance at a...

    Hand Cutting Dovetails Hey LJ! Sorry to anyone who got the wrong video first time they viewed, I embeded the wrong video but that has now been rectified. I am by no means what you would call an experienced hand tool user and I tend to use them in conjunction with my powertools. Nevertheless...
