Entry hall table for a niece

Recommended Posts

With the narrow depth of the table, the difference between the od of the screw and the id of the washer should be good. Good catch.

Top notch work as usual Derek.  

Not being a lot of information out there on the technique for this, it didn't surprise me that what you did find was by Christian Becksvoort

Derik, beautiful dt’s. I believe a while back that you went into detail regarding the kerfing chisel but I wouldn’t know where to start looking. I seem to recall that you made this yourself? Would you mind posting a pic of the profile of this chisel and or provide a link to your previous mention? Thanks

I've never cut dovetails so I really don't know what I'm talking about, but is this really fundamentally any different from lapped dovetails?

I just googled it for the proper term, maybe I got it wrong.

Here's another one calling it a half blind dovetail.

Ahha .. a lapped dovetail is a half-blind dovetail. I forgot that this is the name used in the UK.

Is the lipped- and half-blind/lapped dovetail different?  The lipped dovetail is a half-blind with a lip. The lip makes it more complicated since it restricts how much can be sawn, which affects how the waste is removed. The joint also requires extra preparation at the start, with rebates being created at each side (and sometimes on all four sides). So, short answer, they are similar, but the lipped is more complex.

Thanks for the discussion.  I figured there was a difference in scale in the complication, but the process looks similar. 

Nice work by the way. I do enjoy the projects and the detailed explanation.

Great video Derek! And given that it was real time, it also illustrates to us how labor intensive this project is. The only problem I see is that when you go to push the center drawer close, the outer drawers will push out due to air pressure! :D  I also didn’t know that you had a website. Thanks for sharing.

Everything about your work inspires and impressed me Derek, another beautiful piece, the level of detail is amazing, I think only woodworkers can appreciate the level of skill it took to make this piece but anyone can see the beauty of it, very well done sir!
