Join Paul as he makes this craftsman inspired lamp. The main construction methods are mortises and tenons with grooving for the glass panels. Watch out for the techniques Paul uses to get precise joinery on this fine joinery.

    Another one that looks really fun. I saw something on your blog a while back about this project and have been waiting for it to come out. Let’s make some chips!

    I’m not done with the table yet. Thank G-d for the internet.

    Well, after building four dovetail boxes and two dovetail caddies, I think I’m ready to try something without dovetails. Looks like this is mortise and tenon bootcamp. Looking forward to it.

    What are the thoughts about using red oak instead of white oak on this project? I would imagine red oak cannot be fumed?
