  1. The Simplest Tenon Jig

    You don't need a complex jig to make a simple task. I've come up with a jig that requires only three pieces. It works in conjunction with a crosscut sled (photo #2) or a miter gauge outfitted with an auxiliary fence (photo #6). My shown homemade micro-setting jig is a plus to fine tune the...
  2. White Oak/Sapele chabudai table

    Buddy needed a small table and I had a scrap piece of oak barn wood and some 8/4 sapele scraps. When I ran the oak through the jointer i realized it was white oak, and it was fairly quartersawn/riftsawn. Super simple design, wedged through tenons that I cut with a plug cutter, and two small bow...
  3. More Wood Burning

    I burnt the logos of my parish, St. Philip the Apostle, Lewisville, TX and the logo for the religious retreat organization, ACTS, and their symbol, the crucified Christ, onto this plaque. That's the same image I use on some of my crosses. I took a logo that my brother uses and burnt it for him...
  4. Walnut Bedside Tables

    This pair of bedside tables was commisioned by a friend of my wife. She gave me the outside dimensions and basically turned me loose. I still have the bad habit of designing-as-I-go, so I didn't start out with the idea of doing all of those through tenons. Nothing more therapeutic than hand...
  5. Shoe Rack - Modular

    Modular shoe rack for a friend. Modules can be stacked vertically to add space for more shoes, or whatever fits on the shelves. Through tenons and pins keep the pieces in tension. No glue or hardware is used. The piece can be broken down and transported without taking up too much vertical...
  6. Quilt Rack for Mom

    This is a late posting for my Mothers Quilt Rack that I made for her Christmas present. The upright pieces are Maple, the legs and cross pieces are Walnut. It was made completely by hand and it is joined with my first hand cut tenons. The sides are through tenons with wedges.
  7. How to mill exposed tenons for drawers with a Domino Joiner

    A dovetail alignment jig is used to transfer tails to pins in hand-cut dovetails. The same jig can be used to make dominoed drawers. Here are the basic steps: 1 - Secure mating boards to jig (for 6mm dominoes, set depth to 28mm for 3/4" stock)-pretend no mortises in the image 2 - Plunge to...
  8. Tenoning Jig

    I made this tenoning jig as what I thought could be a solution to the 22.5-degree angle required for a flag display case. I have a right-tilt arbor on my tablesaw which necessitates using the jig in reverse-moving the fence to the left of the blade. Maybe it would work for someone else, but it...
  9. Wood Whisperer Clock - Mexican Parota

    A friend came back from Mexico with a chunk of Mexican Parota. I was stumped for a birthday gift for my mom's 70th because she doesn't need or want anything. I decided to use the Mexican Parota to make a Wood Whisperer clock. I used birch for the turned dowels, splines and the central part that...
  10. Poplar Plugs & Tusks in Walnut

    A good friend wanted a gift for his brother whom he just stayed with for a visit. He suggested using traditional joinery because the brother is into woodworking. I find miters to be much easier than mortise and tenons. It seems I am always getting something out of square or to big or too small...
  11. Table Saw Tenoning Jig

    Having snagged an excellent used Jet Hollow Chisel Mortiser late last year, I needed to acquire a good tenoning jig. I found the plans for one in ShopNotes that seemed to offer all the features of the reasonably expensive, metal jigs sold for table saws. I had all the baltic birch ply laying...
  12. For the new Grandbaby!

    "A Baby is a Little Bit of Heaven on Earth"
  13. Steve Latta Tenoning Jig

    I'm posting this kinda as a public service on Lumberjocks. I was looking through some of the others already posted, and couldn't find Steve Latta's version, which is, IMHO for the time invested and material cost, (sure, you could do better or go overboard) the best. Steve writes for...

  15. Angle (or Compound Angle) Tenon Jig

    Dec 16, 2013 While building my rocker, I needed to make angle tenons. I searched the internet and found one that I thought would work for me so I built it to cut my angle tenons The jig straddles the table saw fence. The piece on which the tenon will be cut was cut long enough to allow for...
  16. exposition stand

    Exposition stand for long-handled prunning saws. I made it for our family business. We import and sell woodworking/gardening tools. It was a usefull practice for working out the joinery principles. All the joints were cut by hand. Surfaces were planed with a handplane and rubbed with beeswax. It...

    Sept 14, 2014 • • (( See addendum at end of post )) • • I was cruising the internet and came across 2 videos that got my attention. One was about a multi-use table saw fence from an article in Fine Woodworking #231. The other one was about an L-Fence from an article in Fine Woodworking...

  20. Mission Nightstands

    Lots of firsts on this project. I couldn't find a good set of plans for exactly what I wanted, so I just sort of set out on my own. Mission-inspired nightstands (to go with a matching headboard, also in my projects) out of white oak, all mortise-and-tenon joinery. The only metal fasteners are...
