Better materials make for better cabinet boxes.
I’m happy to say that the Hand Saw Foundations course is now 100% finished.
A lot of folks have asked to see the kitchen that we’ve been building in the new cabin. I’ve hesitated because the kitchen is far from done, and may yet be in progress for some time. But as I’m beginning to work on another new cabinet, I thought maybe some folks would like to see the process that I’m using to build them.
Today, we have the Patron Extra podcast from June 2017. In this show, I talk about some non-traditional woodworking projects to expand your horizons.
Mitered frames can be a challenge to build without specialized equipment. Even without the specialized miter trimming machines that are used by professional picture framers, the home woodworker can still make frames using a few simple common workshop appliances and techniques.
So if you’re not a user of social media, specifically Instagram, you might be wondering what happened to me. Rest assured that I’m alive and well.
At the end of the last post in this series, we were at a point where pretty much all of the difficult, finicky work was behind us. Now we come to the part of the process where we get to relax a little – the shaping of the handle and the final assembly.
Shaping of the blade and back are done. So now it’s time to start on the handle.
Most joinery saws have some kind of back, or spine, to stiffen the blade because the blades on these saws are typically quite thin and could easily buckle without some kind of support.
All saws need a blade, otherwise they have a hard time cutting wood. So that’s where our saw making process starts.
