Reintroduction

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I was active here for a long time but life happens and I just haven't had time to post for a few years. Old timers here probably remember me but I see a lot of unfamiliar names. I have been at this awhile so hopefully I will be able to share and help out some of you guys starting out. I'll post some pictures of some of my work and see if I have some of my old step by step builds saved somewhere I can post. I build traditional Early American furniture but have unique ways to do a lot of the traditional joinery. Some things have to be done by hand but I have found that with some things there are faster more efficient ways to get the job done. At any rate, hopefully you guys will see me around more in the future.

Make up table

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


Gonna make my daughter a make up table. It will have two drawers on each side of the table and one in the middle (total 5 drawers). I do drawers using my Leigh D4R Pro jig - - and I dread when I have to use the thing. It does do repeatable drawers, but setting it up is almost beyond my patience level. I have ruled out hand-cut dovetails just because it takes me so long to do one drawer. My question is: does/has anyone used the various matching router bits to do drawer joints? Do they have the same strength and longevity of dovetail joints? Good idea? Bad idea?Any comments would be appreciated so thank you in advance.
