  1. So..sitting around, half awake, watching the Woodwright's Shop re-runs....came upon one was Chris Schwarz showing off how the old sty;e "Campaign Furniture" was made....there was a corner joint he was demonstrating how to make....Didn't look like much on the outside.. Just a half lap joint? Until he showed the inside of the corner... Mine is in Pine, had a bit of some chip out....out the joint up just a bit... Dovetails?...could be... Yep, a bit of chip out going on there...May try the other 3 corners, and do a bit of Pract-izing...
  2. Lew suggested: This would probably make a great thread. Tips, jigs, processes, etc. on hand cut dovetails. Well, here it is. Let's see some postings. Here are some of my trials and errors. Let's start the meeting. Hi, I'm Keith and I have a hand cut dovetail problem. (all) "Hi, Keith." I have read about the "blue masking tape technique." I tried that last week once and (stupid me) I pulled off the wrong part prior to cutting the pins. I few years ago, I practiced a joint-a-day prior to making some boxes for coasters for Christmas pres
  3. Not much else going on in the shop....thought I'd try a few ideas out. Was getting boring doing finger joints, anyway.. Laid out some more blanks, to make a box for a Stanley No. 18.. Should be enough. A little bit rough.... We have ways... Takes awhile, when you get see-through shavings..Then rounded up the Usual Suspects... Toys? Seems to fit the scale of the parts, better..pins first.. Yes, I used that toy knife. Was getting ready to trim to the baseline....then used these pins to lay out the tails.. And cut and chop them...
  4. I was going through my computer today, trying to organize the photos and came across these photos of a project that I had done awhile back. There's more photos somewhere but these were the ones that I can found/share. This project started with a view of a "Chippendale Bible Box" in Yale's American Furniture collection. I has some smaller pieces of walnut and though that I could use them to duplicate this chest(photo #1). Here's the results...... my only regret is that I didn't match the front board very well! Everything was hand planed down during the assembly and the dovetails are all hand cu
  5. I don't care how old this chest is, it's been refinished, retrofitted with non original hardware, and it has no legacy, nothing, nada. This guy is kidding right? That being said, you don't need lineage or legacy for a historical piece to be of value, furniture can be graded by other means, but this piece has no other means, not even the original finish. This chest is nearly 300 years old, pine would have a much deeper amber patina to it with that amount of time behind it. So either two things are happening here: He sanded it down before refinishing, in which case the piece is worthless.
  6. Many of my projects involve bow fronts, which result in compound angle dovetails ... I do enjoy building furniture with dovetailing challenges. Between furniture pieces, I find time to build a new tool. This time it is the Moxon dovetail vise I have been promising myself for a while. My first and only one was built in early 2011, after Chris Schwarz helped put it on the map. I immediately modified this design, and have been making modifications since. (Link: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ShopMadeTools/MoxonDovetailVise.html This new Moxon incorporates the be
  7. In July, I posted a router-based method I used to remove the waste from hand cut hand-blind sockets (link). This involved orientating the boards vertically and routing into the end grain. This necessitated a rather clumsy piece of work-holding - which, as I explained at the time, was difficult to avoid as the end grain was not square to the sides, as is usual with drawer front. The bow fronted drawers created ends which were angled. With the usual square drawer fronts, both Bill and Roger on the forum preferred to place their boards flat on the bench and rest the route
  8. Ok..box #2 is started...double and triple checked the saw set up... Trying to cut both boards at the same time, and getting them both in the middle usual luck.. "Missed it by that much, Chief" needed a tad off of one end...then over to the vise.. That #3 was made about 1905, or so..still works. Jointed all the edges until they matched, then Then shoot the end grain until they matched...that is two boards sitting there...laid out all four parts.. And found bar code stickers on a few boards...33 planed those off. Set all but one side p
  9. Hmmm...do mine a bit differently.....no fancy jigs to build, nor fancy router bases to make... Did have to buy some goggles. I guess the vise could be called a jig... two lines, one for the dovetails themselves (base line?) the other sets where the base of the router is to stop....clamp the drawer front with the second line right at the top of the jaws.. I can either mark out the layout of the pins, or..just use the MK 1 eyeball, sighting down. Remove this from the vise, clamp to the bench top.. Hammer and chisel to clean up...use these pins t
  10. I guess it is overdue that I posted some pictures of my builds. Critique is always welcomed, as I like to learn from experience. The most recent piece is this, The Harlequin Table, which is a side table I built for my wife ... The case is Hard Maple from the USA. The drawer fronts are Black Walnut, figured Hard Maple, and pink Jarrah (hence the name, Harlequin). The drawer sides are quartersawn Tasmanian Oak, and the drawer bottoms/slips were made from Tasmanian Blue Gum. Finish was, initially, two coats of dewaxed UBeaut Hard White Shellac (the very faint

  12. Interesting article on cutting through dovetails. Tails first process. https://www.popularwoodworking.com/editors-blog/how-to-make-through-dovetails/?k=O5aSyEQDrOJ71MtJucCkmub0UnqR%2BIUKrY3UU4gftQ8%3D&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&utm_campaign=pww-rfa-nl-190106&cid=DM95690&bid=956688930

  16. Ok, Vacay is over, time to make a bit of sawdust....maybe. Had a few Poplar boards sitting around, taking up space in the shop.. Not quite all the same sizes...little rough around the edges, too. Bandsaw to remove some of the excess stuff.. Will need a bit more done to these, to make something like this.. Maybe square the ends, thin board for a bottom panel....maybe some dovetails to connect things.... Yes, I do pins first. Just easier for me that way. I had to use the mitre box to square the ends, first. And a #4 plane to smooth the edges.
  17. Trying to get a drawer box together today. My dovetail jig is so frustratingly complex, I'm ready to toss it. Finally figured it out with the help of the manual, class notes, personal notes based on the three days it took me to figure it out. So I decided, what the heck, I should just brush off and hand cut the dovetails. Figured out the dimensions and got the wood cut. Got all 4 corners done (last one went a lot faster and better than the first). Then I realized I did not allow enough height allowance. No problem, trim 1/8" off the top and bottom of each side. D'oh, er,
