  1. QSWO Bench for kitchen island

    My brother-in-law asked if I could make a bench for them to use in place of stools at the kitchen island. He showed me a picture of something he saw at an Amish market and I used similar dimensions. It's about 52" long and 24" high and has a bit of weight to it. Fairly simple design that gave...

    In the Dec FWW, Garrett Hack paraphrases Tage Frid saying don't use 4 shoulders around a tenon. Anyone a follower of that Tage Frid that could help explain how many shoulders he advocates and under what circumstances?

    I am eager to build my first woodworking bench. It'll be used for hand-tool woodworking. I bought a bunch of Fir yesterday for a really good deal. But I am still undecided about the specific design. I want it to be very sturdy so I am making the legs out of 6"x6" stock. The top will be 2 slabs...
  4. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I am currently working out of a one car garage and am looking to make a rolling workbench/table saw combo. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to how I can make this better. I've started with a variation of the Ultimate Tool Stand by Dave Munkittrick. My main requirement is that it can...

    I'll explain the situation and the question will be clear. I have a project in which I need to join frames along their edge to make a box. I can handle the front corners. I intend to simply mitre them and glue them. The back however is the issue. At the back of the box the backpiece will be much...

    How do folk like to cut their tenons ? For my bench I'm thinking of doing the tenons on the bandsaw, while Chris Schwarz does his with a dado blade on the table saw. What are the pros and cons to these two methods? I have a dado blade but because the threads on my arbor aren't flat the cutters...

    This cast iron tenoning jig looks like a Shop Fox but has no brand identification on it. It is heavy….22 pounds and works very well. It is capable of cutting angled tenons and is easily adjustable. The unit is in "like new" condition as you can see from the attached photos. New, heavy duty...

    This question is more of a curiosity one-I'm wondering how many other woodworkers do what I do to cut tenons on the tablesaw. I use two dado blades with spacers in between so that I can cut the tenon in one pass. Generally slightly oversized so a couple of passes with a rabbet plane is all...

    Hi All, My first post here, been reading for quite some years but never been a member. I don't feel really comfortable with my first post linking to my own video, but I really think (and hope) the common interest in this jig can be slight big and the swedish forum where I normally hang out is...

    My Second Scrollwork Project Well, the skills are progressing. I'm not sure how long it took me to complete the Treble Clef but today I ventured into more difficult work and decided to make a "dolphin napkin holder". It looked simple enough but was served a purpose. This is good. Down I went...

    Just an idea We need a low outdoor table for drinks and food, etc., Something that would tie into the design of the chairs that we already have. My first inclination is to do this table in Western Red cedar (it's sort of the default everything-outdoor-wood around here), but I keep thinking it...

    Getting the rough shape of the box So I started with 8/4 zebra wood that I bought off my brother. He builds bass guitars for a living and had some left over wood. I resawed the wood down to about 5/8" on my craftsman 12"(given to me by my father in law) with a Woodslicer 3-4, 1/2" blade from...

    Ripping the Legs As you may or may not know, last year I cut off my middle finger while ripping the legs out of the glued up blanks. I didn't have a splitter, riving knife, pawls, or blade guard on the table saw and was then surprised when my finger was gone. This year, I put a Uniguard...
