Inlaid dovetail tutorial

Ken your tutorial is good, but your dove tails are better. You truly are a master, and obviously a great teacher as well. Thanks for sharing that.

You've got to be kidding me. Mine are nothing in comparison to Brink's. The jig does all of the work for me, I just know how to use the jig. Brink's are hand done, and I have to say that up until now, I didn't think that they were possible by hand. It just goes to show you who has the skill around here. First the gorgeous bed frame with its awesome joinery and skilled hand tool use and now these awesome side tables. My level of "awe" is through the roof on this one. Give credit where credit is due. Brink is the man!!!!!!!

I wasn't saying yours are better than brinks. There both beautiful. Don't want anyone to get jealous I was saying your tutorial was good but your dove tails are better than your tutorial. If you know what I mean.

They're done!!!!

I want to thank you all for so many over the top comments.

This project all started with making the BS work, to making veneers, to trying out a new spoke shave, to let's try some inlaid DT's, and these doorknobs look cool.

Seeing as how the old bed had shelves in the headboard, there is no place for lamps, remotes or ww'r magazines, so they are needed.

As for lamps, we don't have one. Some dumb arse knocked over the wife's brass touch lamp (a present I gave her when we were dating) which broke the etched glass shade. She won't let me live it down. "you and those ridiculous looking size 13's". sigh

Next up, two new lamps, with wooden shades. It's for x-mas, keep it a secret.

End tables came out very nice. Your right the stain on the oak looks elegant. & dovetails are sharp.

They look great, Jon! Are you going to make the lamp / shades?

Very nice work. I love these tables and you have done a fantastic job. Absolutely blown away.


And for the record, I noticed your first name being used on this thread. I don't want to mention any names, but the guy that mentioned it has the initials of T.O.M.

Its more funny than anythng else. I haven't used my first name since the second grade. There were 8 Johns in the class, and my last name is too long or hard to pronounce in it's entirety. My teacher shortened it to Brink, and it stuck. Much better than the bathroom comments "Jon" produces, too. There's also less confusion, my older sis is Jan, cruel parents. :)

Nobody noticed, except the wife.

Those nice veneers didn't match the rest of the drawers. She was scrutinizing it last night..."looks like you used ash"

Dang color blindness

Awesome project Brink. I have to say I think the drawer fronts are a "little light" for the rest but overall it works. The lamps sound like a very cool project too. Don't forget to share pics...

I truly appreciate all the wonderful comments. Thanks everyone.

Frank, the drawer fronts a light. If I used red oak, like I planned, I think it would have been better. But that ash slipped itself in there.
