Oh, and FWW's own Matt Kinney depicts this knife-wall/hand sawn method of making the kerfs in his own bench-hook article, "Make Short Work of Small Parts". FWW, July 2010.
I agree with Ed that the Mitre Block should be followed up by a Mitre Shooting Board for fine furniture. Therefore, the Mitre Block does not require machinist-like accuracy.
Alternatively, I would recommend glueing/screwing on a one piece fence, then trusting your hand skills to saw the mitre kerfs using the saw for which the block is intended. For increased accuracy, knife walls can be used to guide your saw during the cut.
Chris Gochnour covers this and other bench hooks in his excellent article: "Expand Your Workbench with Versatile Bench Hooks" in Dec 2004 FWW.
Really cool cabinet. I hope some klutz doesn't walk by your demonstration bench and accidentally knock into that thing...
I am really looking forward to the 14-twelve. It is about time that Laguna ships a 110v bandsaw. The wait is nearly over...
I love Matt Kinney's balanced attitude, but he has written "I'm not a handtool nut" in last months article and "fellow handtool freaks" in this blog post. I am not sure if I am supposed to feel offended, or feel kinship... ;)
Hey - Not too fast...If I pay what Chris Becksvoort asks for his work, I want each joint to be excruciatingly slow for him. ;)
I haven't been able to find Rough Cut on PBS in SoCal, so it would be fantastic to have a hard copy...
This podcast BEGGED for video (or even pictures). Even the title "Behind-the-Scenes" suggests that we might SEE something. It was an interesting and worthwhile interview, but a missed opportunity in my opinion.
Keep up the good work.
The woodworker in the video states: "...I should be able to cut off my own finger with my table saw if I want to."
Didn't he say at the beginning that he cut off his finger because he "made a careless mistake?"
That does not make it sound as if he WANTED to cut his finger off...
I also was at RISD (but in the late eighties - after Frid), and definitely see hints of Tag Frid's influence in some of Warner's design, particularly his chairs. His work seems to go far beyond that, however. Nice.
