Dovetail Keyed Mitres on Walnut Live Edge Sofa Tables

Dovetailed keys re-enforce a mitre joint on a live edge sofa table by

Making sliding dovetails live!

Thought the sliding dovetail seams daunting can be fairly simple once you understand it. tonight I want to show this simple joint and how easy it is!

00:00:00 James Wright: What are we going to do today?
10:00 Cody Bryant: What tools did you buy at the tool meet James?
14:00 Troy Jacobson: ​Have you thought about selling at a meet, and make a video of it?
17:00 Blue Kestral: ​would it be possible to make a dovetail plane?
19:00 TheRealEvora: Where do you get firewood for woodworking? I wanted to make a joiners mallet.
21:00 WB Fine Woodworking: James, did you buy the Stanley Number 1 plane this time?
29:00 R. Tawney: ​Have you thought about selling your tools on eBay instead of a yard sale?
30:00 Ben Simmons: Best mid-range chisels on the market? or ones you would recommend? not happy with my wood river ones.
32:00 Jacob Bly: ​How do I tell my woodwork teacher that you don't sharpen tools by making 50 different bevels and the steel blue using a high-speed bench grinder?
35:00 Jefariland: ​That saw looks like it belongs in a Japanese anime. it's fantastical. who made it?
36:00 Mark Baldwin: How did you get the cutter to fit on the router plane so well. it seems the screw on mine is to short.
37:00 Thad Fleming: James, I was gifted about 75 bdft of white oak. Is it worth using?
37:00 Jefariland: ​I got a bunch of wood from my granddad, is there an easy way to identify what kind it is?
39:00 S Ritchie: ​Do you know of any cure for hand tool pattern baldness?
41:00 Tom Feller: Can you offer any advice on tips making long sliding dovetails. I amworking on a sliding dovetail that is over 24.
43:00 S Ritchie: ​What is a relatively cheap hardwood?
45:00 Ben Simmons: ​i’d love some with a screwing mechanism where the blade and handle can detach semi easily to make flattening easier on the stones, any suggestions there? thanks
46:00 J M: ​Alright I'll ask a question: How do I convince my wife I should spend 10 times longer building stuff using joints instead of just pocket holes?
47:00 J M: I have a whole bunch of white oak in my basement, I'm building a lounge chair for the pool, how well will it behave outdoors? how best to seal it?
50:00 Jonathan Farmer: Besides Paul sellers, who else would you recommend to follow on YouTube if I'm looking for skilled general hand tool woodworking
51:00 Widukind: ​what would you say black walnut wood is good for?
52:00 65BAJA: ​How much pressure do you use when you strop?
54:00Tyler Whatman: can you do a relief carve of a dog out of a log?
54:00 Jake Davenport: How does a high end modern plane compare to a well tuned vintage? I've got some old planes that I love, but I often wonder if modern planes would be with the investment.
58:00 Jefariland: ​Is there any reason to have a hand drill, if I already have a power drill?

My Continuous Dovetail Stool - Part 2

The second iteration of the dovetail stool that i built for myself...

How I Made an Extendable Dining Table with Sliding Dovetails (sort of)

I made a dining table out of red oak board from my local home center that can extend using sliding dovetails, kind of.

It's more like using the concept of dovetail slides but I am building the dovetail pieces separately and is then installed onto the apron rather than the apron and dovetail slides are made from one solid piece.

In terms of material cost, I used around $300 dollars worth of red oak from my local Home Depot.

Making Wooden Hinges with NO Specialty Tools - Joint of the Week

Get the Katz-Moses Magnetic Dovetail Jig here:
This weeks woodworking joint is the Wooden Hinges with NO Specialty Tools. I tries to make two types, regular hinges and a stopped hinges like the brusso version. The first one came out great. All you need is a roundover bit, a box joint jig and some elbow grease. The stopped hinge was a little trickier but I plan on revisiting and working out the kinks in the near future. Let me know in the comments what joint you’d like to see next week. Thanks for watching! Please like, comment and subscribe. Cheers!

Sliding Dovetails by Hand

Sliding dovetails require great precision especially when fitting them across a wide case side. Cutting sliding dovetails by hand doesn't have to be as hard as you think and in many ways I find I have more flexibility with the joint when done with hand tools. I'll show how I cut them by hand using a saw and chisel. If there is time I'll break out my fancy dovetail plane too.

Master the Stopped Sliding Dovetail Without a Router

I have to admit, this was a tough call. Was it a stopped sliding dovetail or a lapped dovetail? In the end, I felt it was more of a sliding dovetail. So here is my video on how to make one without a router.
