The template should be identical in ize to the fixed brace A and the adju table brace B. This prevents the splintering and blowout that can occur on the back face when a mortise i cut through from one face. Then cut that mortise in both brace. Po ition the template on the morti er with the bit centered on one of the bottom morti es. La' out the morti e on the template. Flip over the template. That means you can u e primo wood. Make ure to po ition the workpiece against the appropriate stop block when you flip it over to complete the morti e.

Then cut a through morti e Photo 2.

Cutting the three remaining decorative mortise in the two braces requires a slightly different approach. Add a bench top morti er and a weekend in your hop.

Taper the outside edge of both braces by hand Photo 7. Use the two stop blocks to cut the bottom mortises. Then install a second stop block. Cut threequarters through each workpiece. Make sure the rod D freely pas through the morti e in the adju table brace.

Taper both ends of the fixed end on the tablesaw. Apply glue to the rods and then slide end into position. Then u e tape to mark the locations of the two fixed piece on the ends of the rod.

SUghdy aper bottom to top. Make ure the e pieces remain perpendicular.. Reducing the mass at the top helps the bookrack's overall appearance. Use the. Carefully apply glue to the rod and lide the fixed brace and the fixed end into po ition Photo 8. After cutting each new through mortise. COm U e a chi el to remove thi glue after it has hardened to a leather-like con i tency.

U ing a chisel to enlarge the mortises on the adju table brace is a more difficult option. Tape marks the spot and protects the surfaces from glue that squeezes out fixed brace and fixed end tightly enough to be effectively glued.

I first built a headboard like this years ago using only a miter saw. Cut the top board B to the same length. Clamp a 1x4 along each line and trim the board to final length with your router Photo 1. The joinery consi ts of just gluing together ome of the 1x4. For materials. It will have the mo t dramatic effect if it's 12" to 16" wide.

There are a handful of ways you can do this yourself see 5 Ways to Flatten Wide Boards. Make the long side of the board traight and parallel using a router.

Make the legs First. Mo t hardwood lumberyards have a few odd boards that are over 12" wide-ideal candidate for this project. Mark the finished length of the front board. This dimen ion depends on two things: The project really is that imple.

My shop was just a driveway. If the board needs to be flattened. Make the front and top The front board A can be virtually any width. To calculate the legs' length. Cut thi board two inches extra-long using a jigsaw or a handsaw.

This method will work on a board of any size. The trick is to figure out how much to take off-and where. In this example, the mattress is 27" high. If you're good with planes, you can certainly level a wide board by hand.

But you can also do the job using smallshop power tools. Here are five methods:. If the board is more than 2" wider than your jointer, rip the board into two pieces and flatten each one separately. The critical step is figuring out where to make the rip cut to best conceal the joint. Running a warped board through a planer doesn't necessarily make it flat-just thinner.

Build a special sled with some strategically placed shims to keep the board from rocking. To level a board of any width, build a gantry for your router with two pieces of aluminum angle.

Cut the legs C and leg return D to length.

Cut the leg brace E to length. The e piece help keep the front board from warping by tiffening the legs. Glue the legs and leg return together, making ure that they are flush. Glue the brace to the legs Photo 2. Note that the final emblie will be mirror image of each other. Drill crew hole in the legs Fig. Plane, rout or sand a chamfer all around the legs, including the ends. Chamfer the front four edge of the front A and all four top edge of the top B. Sand all of the e piece to grit Cut all the tiffeners F and cleats G.

Drill two crew hole in each piece. Glue the cleats to three of the tiffeners. Finishing and assembly Fini h both ide of the front board with an equal number of coats. Thi will help prevent it from warping. To bring out the figure in my mahogany board, I first applied two coats of2-lb. I used two coats of ebony Minwax Wood Fini h it' actually an oil-based tain , followed b two coats of Polycrylic fini h.

They hould be flush with the end of the front board. Then in tall all the tiffene. Trim the end of the big board with a large top-bearing pattern bit. Guide the router with a straightedge. Clamp a scrap piece to the board to prevent blowout at the end of the cut. Glue the legs together. Place a cutoff under the board you're gluing to ensure that the joint comes out square. Apply two coats of black stain to the legs.

Use a spacer to position the leg below the board's top edge. The screws with fender washers pass through oversize holes, allowing the front board to expand and contract. Position this piece, and the one below it, snug up against the leg to prevent the headboard from racking side to side. For preci ion, you might think that power tool are the way to go, but I alway turn to a mall et of hand tool to do the job. U ing a marking knife, pin gauge and chi el, you can preci el lay out and cut hinge morti e in a very hart time.

Fir t, let me hare a few thoughts with you about the hinge them elve. When electing butt hinge , I teer clear of the inexpen ive stamped variety and in tead download high-quality extruded and machined hinge made from olid bras. The leave of the e hinge are typically thicker and tronger than tho e found on tamped hinge. They pivot moothly and preci ely. Look for hinge that appear proportional in ize to the door and cabinet.

I u ually elect a hinge that' approximately the arne height as the lower rail of the door.

Bevel the lock stile Mter carefully fitting the door to the cabinet, with a mall but even margin all around, bevel the edge of the lock tile the tile oppo ite to the one that receive the hinge. A bevel here prevents the back edge of the tile from triking or binding on the ca e as the door do e.

Fasten each hinge in its morti e Photo 9. Gently tap the chi el with a mallet nearly to the full depth of the morti e. I u e an edge-trimming block plane. Grinding a spade bit on the Drill Doctor DDSB guarantee that both cutting edges will be in the same plane and that the point will remain centered-a geometry that's very hard to achieve if you harpen spade bits by hand.

Both factors help make a spade bit run true. Drill Doctors are well-known, reliable machines for sharpening twist bits. Like its larger cousin, the EX-I6' head tilts, not the table.

That' a real advantage. Your workpiece tays level, giving you better control for intricate cuts. The EX al utiliz a parallel-link arm to minimize vibration. The larger Excalibur have the same type of arm.

The motor has a variable peed control, going from to trokes per minute. It repla the 0, a mod I that received top marks in our planer t I test back in In the year inee, few other mall planer have met the very high tandard set by the o. I the new model a tep forward? The new model introduce a three-knife cutterhead. The higher the number of cuts per inch, the moother the urface you'll get. Few other planer can match 96 cpi, the new model does quite well in this regard.

The old model, the , had a two-knife cutterhead. It was capable of producing 90 cpi, but this required you to witch the feed rate to a much lower peed. The new version of this app is a big step backward. The biggest problem for me that I am not seeing the latest issue of the magazine on older devices.

It used to work just fine. Another problem is that they have not thoroughly tested offline use. A couple of days ago I was away from net access and went to read the mag. It would not show me an issue I had previously downloaded because it could not connect to their site.We took your suggestions back to our development shop and got to work. That' a real advantage. Porter-Cable suggests that you use the high-speed steel knives.

The WR also has improved mounting hardware, and i designed to easily fit many brand of planer. Bevel the lock stile Mter carefully fitting the door to the cabinet, with a mall but even margin all around, bevel the edge of the lock tile the tile oppo ite to the one that receive the hinge. Fir t, let me hare a few thoughts with you about the hinge them elve.
