  2. Dowel Splice Joint

    I've got a closet in my spare bedroom (storage room) that I wanted to add another clothes hanger rod to. Among my scrap pieces I had two 1.25" diameter closet rod sections that together would be long enough, but neither was long enough on their own. The distance to span is roughly 22". This is a CNC-cut splice joint I came up with to solve the problem. Test cut on smaller scraps shown in the photos. I'm calling it my radial finger joint. Finished spliced rod now loaded with clothes and seems to be able to handle the weight with no complaint. If it does fail eventually I'll report back. 4D
  3. "Fingered" As for the shop... "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here" So, I crosscut a few chunks of cherry this morning. The longer sides were stacked together and jointed When a board is this short, you don't need a #7 jointer plane....then the got trimmed on the end..grain.. Stanley #60-1/2 Cordovan, no less. Ok, I also had the end pieces trimmed up this same way, stacked the mess togther, for now And that should do it for the planes, for now. Laid out the fingers, with a high tech gauge This is also the chisel I will be chopping with. Start at one end, and walk to the over end. Here, I am laying out both pieces at one end, I'll saw and chop this end, then repeat for the other ends. Saw? Just a backsaw....helps to wax the blade every now and then, too. Got all the ends of these sides sawn.. I took the time now, to mark not only the "Top" but marked out the ends as #1 through #4 on the insides. Time to get to chopping.. I chop about halfway through.. Flip the board over and complete the fingers. Repeat until I have both sides done (take note of that time stamp) And a look at the toys in use. I set one side aside for now, need to mark and chop the end piece, and get a test fit.. Needs some fine tuning. Lunch break going on right now. Later I wander back down and chop the other end.... But, I think this will do for one morning's work? Need to haul the Stanley #45 down to the shop later. Need to glue up a panel or two, cherry panel for the top...pine for a bottom. Lid details are still being worked out... Stay tuned, this might get complicated......
