Ripping Thin Strips

Ripping thin strips is no problem. We use the back side of a featherboard to set the width of each strip.

In this issue we finish our series on the mechanics of joinery. We look at bowl bits and how you can use them to create trays and barrel hinges and how to install them. The weekend project is a series of three board games that will take you back in time. We build a clever storage cart that nests under the table saw, plus a Moxon vice for the workshop. In our turning section we show you how to build a jig that will allow you to route coves in tapered spindles. The focus of the issue is cutting dovetails. The Moxon vice has staggered houndstooth dovetails cut by hand. We also show you how to cut oversized dovetails on the bandsaw. As usual we feature clever tips and techniques from our generous readers.

SAFETY IN THE WORKSHOP Safety devices, such as riving knives, guards on table saws and guards over router bits have been deliberately left out of the line drawings in Australian Woodsmith projects in order to make them easier to follow. It goes without saying that where safety devices have been supplied by the manufacturers you should use them. We encourage the use of push sticks as good work practice.
    Exercise vigilance and the greatest of care when using power tools, whether stationary or portable. Keep all your tools sharp and well maintained. Wear protective eyewear, a dust mask and a hearing protector when appropriate. By limiting distractions and developing safe work practices you will go a long way to avoiding workshop accidents. So, work safe fellow woodworkers.  -Editor
