Again...Dovetails
After I have cut off my dovetails a couple of weeks ago, now it's time to cut new dovetails. I wanted to do a short retrospective to conclude what I'm working on. And I noticed that I haven't written a post about the project itself. I wrote that I  cut off ...

Blue Spruce Leather Craft
It's cold outside. And inside too. The last days it was, at least for me, much too cold to be in the workshop. Time to do something different. To get distracted from my day job I have to make something in my free time. The last week and days have been too c...

Corner Joint
Last week I cut off all my dovetail from a frame I have recently built. Here comes why. I wrote about it a while ago. One of the projects I have on my list is a mid-century phone bench. It is kind of a honey do project. But I found it is an interesting proj...

I Cut Off My Dovetails
Recently I cut off my dovetails. If you are wondering if I'm crazy, then feel invited to find out what's going on. You have to think I'm crazy. I assure you I'm not. I spent a reasonable amount of effort to make a frame jointed by dovetails. While cutting t...

Restoring a Short Jointer Plane
A longer while ago I have found a wooden short jointer plane at one of my flea market visits. Somehow I didn't spent any time to care about it. Planing a wide board as a top panel caused me to recall. Recently I wanted to plane the top for the upcoming phon...

Coat Rack Pt.3
This was the week of multiple projects. But the coat rack has to be completed. At the original version the frame is mounted at an angle to the
backboard. To reach this I have to establish a bevel at the back edge of
the frame. For this task I'm usually la...

Finding the Right Joint for Mid-Century Legs
Today I would like to share some thoughts about a leg-frame construction for Mid-Century style furniture. Furniture of this period do have pretty often legs set at a 45° angle (vertically) with splay and rake. Additionally they have got an oval or rounded o...

Coat Rack Pt.2
My full attention this week belonged to the coat rack. Nothing very special, but things like stop cut recesses, making dowels and working precisely without damaging anything. The bridle joints cut and fitted, the first stage of building the basic frame is d...

Wherever I Lay My Hat
Don't worry. This post is not about the Marvin Gaye song. Although it fits into the period my new project is about. The song is from 1962. So we are talking about the Mid-Century. Once again the Mid-Century is part of the story. I wrote about it a couple of...

Another Summer is Over
Man, time flies by. While I'm still waiting that Summer is coming, it is already over. That was a crazy one. No longer period of having nice weather conditions. Rain every second day. And personally, I didn't spent much time with woodworking. To be honest I...
