    Bench coming along well. It may only be in the southwest where a 30 minute storm can substantially change your entire landscape view. Good thing your shop will dry quickly in hours instead of days....

    I’ve had lots of experience with nail guns of all kinds. I’ve shot many millions of nails. I would guess that I’ve double shot a few, don’t know how many but less than 50 I would bet. I would not...

    I like the table Derek. The leg shape is nice and goes very well with the piece. The splay from the side looks great. I had to look at it a few times from the front. I think the splay looks a little...

    From what you described I think you have a dip or cup at that point on both boards. A plane may not be the tool for this. Depending on how large the panel is I would be tempted to use a card scraper...

    Looking very fine Derek. I kept thinking I had seen rounded dovetails like yours somewhere. I think I finally remembered. The old radio casework from the 1920s and 30s had those rounded corners. Some...

    I'm not suggesting that anyone do tails this way. It's like chocolate or vanilla to me. I like cars with hub caps too. Nothing appealing to me about lug nuts showing. Makes a car look like a 2 and a...

    I think Ken has it right now. To build something that is essentially a copy is one thing. To understand why it was built the way it was is another. That lightbulb moment when you figure it out is...

    If you are suppose to cut tails on the front and back boards and not on the side boards of a drawer than I've been misinformed for 60 years. I like the strength of the joint just not the look. I also...

    I found two photos of work on a box. I don't use the same proceedure for drawers because there is no miter for the drawer. For mitered full blinds I just use a paring block for the miters.

    Jim you might try putting one of the old style car radiator petcock drains in the bottom of your can. That makes it adjustable.

    Good job Jim. It will be good to hear how you get along with it in use. I'm a bit surprised that there are not many of those heard about for woodworkers. Lots about hand crank grinders but not so...

    It will most likely be heavier in the base. I'm working out a tail vise for it. It is not intended to be portable easily. The construction part is fairly easy. They remind me very much of a saw...

    The front goes straight across. The edge you are seeing is the end of th front. You can see the ends of the tails from the back side only. The front is on the right side inn the 4th photo.

    How I do Dovetails

    I don't care for the look of dovetails. I think mechanically they are a great joint. I started a couple of years ago making full blind dovetails and was happy with the results. It works great for...

    A whole different perspective after your explainations. The wedged through tenon and the leg pinned to the tenon makes a huge difference than a loose tenon. That is much better IMO. I'm not a big...

    Thanks for the reply Derek. I have many concerns about legs. I'm one of those that would most likely add a few lag screws and epoxy the whole thing and maybe more :). Carry on looking good so far....
