When making through-mortises by hand, one of the occasional problems is that you get a little mallet happy, you drive the mortise chisel a little too deep and you blow out a piece of grain on the exit side.

I like how easy the saws are to start. As a result I almost always get the stink eye from the others in the shop. What are horns? This is when you make your stiles longer than they need to be, usually….

While teaching a class on handsawing a couple years ago, one student lost his cool.

The classroom got real…. When I glue up panels from several narrow boards, I use my jointer plane to dress all the mating edges. So I find it easier to dress my edges by hand than to fuss with the powered jointer….

This morning I decided to do something about it. Conventional wisdom is that the head works loose because of the shock that the tool is….

Blacksmith David Maydole was the SawStop of the 19th century. Sometimes hammerheads would fly loose from their handles on the job site. This could be troublesome or deadly because occasionally the steel head would strike a fleshy one the steel usually wins this competition. Some of the best workholding ideas rely on simple wedging action. This weekend I stumbled onto one more great wedging trick using cut nails. This might be old hat for you. If so, forgive my waste of bandwidth which should be the motto of my blog.

The most stressful glue-up of my life was assembling my tool chest in The main carcase had mating surfaces that had to be glued. Foolishly, I chose yellow glue as the adhesive.

As a result, another editor and I spent an hour furiously beating and clamping the chest together. In the end, there…. I got interested in David Maydole, the father of the legendary adze-eye hammer.

Our goal for these columns is to show that attractive, well made projects can be made with a minimal amount of tools and time. For me, finger joints have always been the nerdy, square cousin to the dovetail.

Finger joints are immensely strong when glued properly.

There is something deep inside our DNA that ties us to the chest as a form of furniture. First off, how many other kinds of furniture do we have that are named after critical parts of our own bodies?

Whenever I get into some serious handwork, I always try to boil down the processes so that I can 1 remember it myself and 2 occasionally explain it to others including a couple children who are slack-jawed with boredom.

We try to make the joints easy, quick and straightforward. We tend to promote furniture designs that have straight lines and wide appeal.

Question: Looking over the current and past issues of Woodworking Magazine, I see how drawboring or wedging a mortise and tenon joint will improve the strength and fit of the joint.

Like most home woodworkers, my dang day job tends to get in the way of my woodworking. Gerunds, appositives and dangling participles have all conspired to keep me chained to this keyboard. Some projects play along nicely; others tend to fight you all the way.

The Creole Table is shaping up to be a bit of a raging Cajun. My goal this week was to complete the top of the table and cut the curved transitions between the apron and cabriole legs. The walnut for the top…. One of the big challenges in building a project for publication is to come up with techniques that use common tools and skills to produce results that others can replicate using the same tools and techniques.

I like working with walnut, but I hate marking it. Its dark color makes pencil lines disappear. And its open grain hide knife lines as well. Dovetailing is a particular problem for me. But even if I…. I always enjoy tours of tool factories to see people or robots make things that are useful to my work.

How a company can harness hundreds of minds and hands and mechanical pincers to produce things is fascinating, and every tour is surprising and different.

In China, was the year of the rooster. In our shop, was the year of the anvil. We built a guillotine out of framing material and dropped anvils of three weights on joints to see how they fail.

Add to the fact that they are normally quite lengthy, and it seems like you have a recipe for a wobbly mealtime.

But after inspecting a fair number of historical examples…. So it should come as no surprise that…. One of my favorite movies as a teen-ager had a scene where a s-era G-man goes to a mystic for help in becoming a superhero.

The G-man shows the mystic , named Sombra , a photo of a caped hero and asks for a magic word to become like him. One of the themes coursing through the next issue of Woodworking Magazine is rethinking the role of nails in woodworking. Perhaps the most frustrating part of using cut nails was…. A fair number of historical texts recommend this with large-scale joints particularly in timber framing. When I do…. Have you ever wondered why there are specific rules for the sizes of mortise-and-tenon joints?

And that the tenons should be five times as long as they…. One of the curious aspects of investigating drawboring has been the mystery surrounding antique drawbore pins.

I have looked and looked and can not find a reference to these…. Many cabinets with shelves are built using a common method: You plow dados in the sides of the cabinet. And then you glue the shelves into the dados.

In looking at a lot of old fine furniture, you might be surprised how much of it is made using nails. I think the problem comes from the fact that we are using the wrong nail. Most nails today are….
