I ran across these pictures of a room divider screen frame I made for a friend of the family awhile back. She wanted to cover with fabric and have the top and bottom rails removable to slide into the loop in the fabric top and bottom. So I used a dovetail joint on the ends of the rails. I thought this might be of interest to someone. Herb
Ok got a few things done. One stile is now completed. Grooves and mortise cut, cut outs for the rails to snuggle into. GGrooves were cut with a Plough Plane From about 1860 or so. makes some nice curlies Got some mortises finshed up One for the bottom rail Top rail's mortise. Note a 45 degree cut? The rail will match this, will look like a mitered joint. The center Lock rail was a bit different Double tenons. Double 45s. Grooved on one side, will have a rebate on the other when things get put together. Checked the joint for square, then marked out for the tenons. Not too bad, so far. Need to cut a few tenons next. Then locate WHERE a middle stile will go. Make that part, and measure for a couple raised panels. Might do one big panel, rip it to size, and have a book-matched panel for the bottomof the door. So far, mainly hand tools...LOTS of them. List of "Toys" so far: Mortise Chisels 3/16" and 1/4" Firmer chisels BIG hammer, as the wood mallet just won't drive the Mortise chisels Couple of squares Marking/cutting guage Plough plane, 1/4' x 1/4" grooves Low angle Block plane, #1455 Gents Saw, crosscut/miter cuts Backsaw, filed rip. For rip cuts Full sized handsaw, 8ppi crosscut, cut the boards to length. ( cheated on some, got out the Craftsman 7-1/4 circular saw) Tape measure, of course. Might come in handy? Stay tuned, the CUSSING is just beginning...
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
