Jigs for machining tapered octagons

Four Post Bed Joinery

The bevels to the square portion where the rails join the posts. To simplify this, I devised the two simple jigs shown in figure 3 on the next page. I use the jigs in conjunction with a tablesaw molding head, but they can be used with a shaper or a table-mounted router and a 45 cutter (you'll need 1 ' in. of cutting surface). The posts are first roughed out on the bandsaw, and the tapers are cleaned up on the jointer. Then, the corners of the tapered portions are beveled into octagons by running them over the molding head, using one jig for the upper portion and the other for the lower portion. Cutting the bevels by machine saves time and virtually eliminates tearout and. because of the cutter's arc, automatically leaves a smooth transition from the bevels to the square portion of the post. This results in a completely shaped post right off the ma- Fig. 3 Jigs for sawing tapered bevels Fig. 3 Jigs for sawing tapered bevels The photo at left shows the setup for beveling the upper...

Jigs and platens for LF heating

Narrow strip elements can be laid directly against the veneer or laminate in edge banding, etc. but some softening is often necessary to absorb inequalities. If a strip of old bag press rubber is available this can be placed either between the element and the veneer or against the pressure member, with a thin piece of heat-resistant material to conserve the heat. Figure 325 3 shows a typical disposition. Continuous strip elements (325 1, 2) in panel form cannot be laid directly against the veneer as there are gaps between the strips, and in order to spread the pressure a sheet of 20 gauge aluminium is often used with an interleaving of 1 16 in (1.5 mm) laminated plastic to insulate the strips. The elements can be attached to the wooden pressure former with again a thin layer of some type of heat-resistant material to conserve the heat, and a softening pad if necessary (325 5). Platens or jigs can be made of plywood or blockboard on a rigid softwood foundation, and shaped to fit for...

Lesson In Chair Joinery

This white-oak Arts and Crafts style chair fits comfortably in a dining room or a library setting. Though primarily rectilinear, the chair has a curved back rest and a few angled joints, so there are some construction challenges. But jigs and templates help you handle the curves and angles.

Twosided Jig For Routing Back Legs

I use jigs to duplicate curved and angled parts, and to create accurate angled joineiy. These jigs will come in handy if you decide to build a set of chairs. First, trace the back legs on the stock using a full-size template made from Vi-in.-thick Masonite. Rough-cut the legs to shape using a jigsaw or bandsaw, being careful to leave the line. The only cuts that should be exactly to the line at this point are the top and bottom cross-grain cuts.

Directions For Making The Chair

Make the seat first, locating the centers for the holes where the legs are to set in place on the underside. Use wooden jigs as illustrated in Fig. 15, page 29, for boring the holes at the proper angles. Bevel the edges of the seat and hollow the top surface so that it looks and feeis comfortable. Do not bore the holes through the scat unless the drawings show them that way. Turn the legs and rounds on the lathe and attach them to the seat. The rim for the fan-shaped backs can be bent on a form marked out on a work-table or on the floor. Make a full size lay-out of the shape of the back and nail small blocks

An Open Forum For Questions And Comments

The problem with using dowels to align the boards is really a problem of trying to align the dowel holes in the first place. Each set of opposing holes (for the dowels) must be exactly opposite each other for the length of the boards. Doweling jigs and dowel centers are designed to help with this problem. But they never seem to be able to pull it off, especially when you're working long boards (as on a table top).


Lap Joint Legs

Build this reproduction of an original Stickley design with the help of the two simple sawing jigs. The thing I like about the fern table is that, while it is basically true to the original, it's not too complicated for the weekend woodworker. To make sure of that, I came up with two easy-to-make jigs to help with the trickiest cuts the compound miters on the apron edges. Figure 6 After all four aprons are cut to size, remove the two jigs and reset the blade to make the 1 4 deep kerf cuts for the spines, as shown at right. Figure 6 After all four aprons are cut to size, remove the two jigs and reset the blade to make the 1 4 deep kerf cuts for the spines, as shown at right. Before you start on your apron jigs, take a moment to lay out the decorative mortises now, while the pieces are still square. This will help keep your pieces oriented when cutting the miters (be sure the grain is horizontal). Now turn your attention to the two jigs shown above (see Figures 4 and 5 the construction...

Dovetailing accessories

Arcoy Dovetailer

Where short runs do not warrant the use of a dovetailing machine, accessories can be obtained for most types of spindle moulding shaping machine and router (including portable routers), incorporating suitable jigs or finger plates into which the single cutter is fed. Particulars of these can be obtained from the manufacturers concerned. For the handworker not completely wedded to hand dovetailing, and lacking sufficient practice to cut dovetails as speedily as the hardened professional, a worthwhile accessory is the dovetailing unit for use with the standard portable router or hand drill (167). This gives good machine-type dovetails, but as the male pin is square and the socket slightly rounded on the base, slight gaps are visible in through dovetails, and its use is, therefore, confined to lap dovetails for drawer sides, etc. and dovetail housing.

Chiseling out the waste

Although the Shakers did not have routers and commercial jigs at their disposal, the tools' efficacy for cutting dovetail joints quickly and precisely would certainly have appealed to them. The jig shown at right consists of two templates fastened to backup boards. The workpiece is secured to the jig and a stop block helps with positioning for repeat cuts. Here, a router fitted with a dovetail bit moves in and out of the slots of the tail board template.

Heat Acceleration Of Glue Sets

While all types of glue set faster in warm atmospheres, thermoplastic glues, i.e. heat-melting glues such as hide glue, will soften or liquefy under pronounced heat but thermosetting glues will cure much more rapidly either by quicker evaporation of the moisture content, as in modified animal glues, or by a definite heat reaction in the case of synthetic resin glues. As this rapid acceleration of glue sets is of great importance to furniture-manufacturers seeking quick release of expensive tools, jigs and equipment, considerable research has been directed into the study of the most effective methods of applying heat without scorching the wood or disrupting its fibres, and various processes have been perfected which are now used extensively in industry for edge banding, laminating, scarfing, veneering and general assembly-work. It should be pointed out, however, that while the various processes are simple enough to operate, the more sophisticated methods require the initial services of...

Photography By Stephen Hepworth Main Illustrations By Ian Hall

In terms of cost, design features can prove expensive - they are generally worked by hand and so cost more to produce than the whole of the jointing. Complicated features, say on a batch production, could be made by using jigs, but on one-off commissions, the time taken up in producing jigs can take longer than tackling the feature by hand. On the other hand, features should not be rushed, because it is they that will give the piece its integrity - and will also help to sell it I have found in the past that a lot of people who view furniture do not notice the strong, accurate joints, except perhaps the dovetails, but will notice and comment on design features, the timber, and the final stain, or type of finish

Estimating The Cost Of Manhours In Handwork

Proprietor must assess his own capabilities and those of his employees. Common joinery items are usually in softwood of fairly large dimensions, with no careful selection of materials and no elaborate detailing. In furniture, hardwoods require from 10 to 20 per cent more time to work, more time to cut the smaller joints, more time to finish off and a cabinet-door only a quarter of the size of a standard softwood door might take twice as long to make. The only practical method, therefore, is to see the work as a whole and attempt an assessment of the hours required to make it in terms of one man's working time then to itemize the various operations, i.e. making working drawings, setting out, preparation of jigs and templates, getting out material (plenty of time should be allowed for this as it entails careful selection), sawing out and planing up for carcass, jointing carcass, getting out drawer material, framing drawers, fitting drawers (again allow plenty of time), etc., etc.,...

Batch Production

The essence of batch production is care and organisation. Accurate cutting lists, careful sequencing of tasks, and use of rods and jigs for repeat measurements and tasks is essential. The backs are pinned to the drawer frames and shelves using hardboard jigs which hold the pin in place for the hammer - a very simple but effective aid.

Speculating in sy

Mortise the legs before tapering, and begin the taper 150mm, 6in down from the top of the leg. The tapers can be achieved with jigs on the planer-thicknesser or circular saw but I find the simplest, safest, and most enjoyable method is to rough them out on the bandsaw and finish by hand, as the wood is such a joy to plane.

Entomological trays

However, be necessary at intervals of about 2 ft (609 mm) to prevent movement of the carcass sides in tall cabinets. Some method of stopping the individual trays from being fully withdrawn may have to be included, either as a precaution against loss, or to prevent a tray tipping out and spilling its contents. If the glass frames are screwed down in the tray rebates rabbets the stopping mechanism will have to be installed from the back, with the carcass back either treated as a hinged door or easily removable, with small bolts screwed to the tray backs working in stopped slots grooved into the running guides. If the stopping mechanism can be fitted inside the trays then a simple brass pivot and screw plate can pass through the tray side to engage in the stopped slot (244 15). Rubber buffers may also have to be fitted to the back of the cabinet to cushion the shock of free-running trays. As already mentioned, the trays should be interchangeable, calling for very careful layout and...

Moulded legs

Moulded legs parallel or tapered with the mouldings stopped or running through can be worked with the spindle-moulder shaper if suitable jigs are made up, or made entirely by hand. In the case of simple flutings these can be worked first, either with a round moulding-plane or scratch stock, and the leg tapered after although if the fluting is very shallow it will have to be deepened slightly at the tapered end or the form will be lost. It is, therefore, better to taper first and then mould, supporting the leg in a suitable cradle (200 1), with the leg wedged as in 200 2 so that the sides of the box are parallel to the main axis of the leg. It will also have to be packed up, and 200 3 shows the method of arriving at the amount of packing required. The section of the leg top (A) and the bottom (B) are drawn out full size, also the exact shape of the moulding at the top. If lines (x) are then drawn from the extremities of the mouldings to the centre point, then the intersection of these...
