Marc Adam's method of doing Maloof type leg to seat joint in a.b.p.w.


Another joint to ad to your joinery repetoire - or not. Posted 3 illustrations of this "rabbeted tenon" joint in alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking.
I'm on a Mac so ignore the .dat file if you're on a WinDoze box.

"leg joint", 3 of 3, was a misfire... the others tell the tale, though. Thanks.

Never had him as a teacher. He was demonstrating pocket screw joinery at a woodworking show for or five years ago. Though I didn't know him from Adam, he clearly knew his stuff AND could communicate very well. After the demo he stuck around and answered every question folks asked, well into what should have been his lunch time.
I figured he'd be answering questions well into his lunch time so I went and got us both a sandwich and cokes. When I returned he'd just finished up with the last straggler. Handed him a sandwich and a coke and we visited over "lunch" - all twenty minutes of it.
Now some of the folks who do demonstrations at woodworking shows are One Trick Pony Acts - they can demonstrate the product and answer questions about it - but that's it. Not so with this guy. It was clear that he had a passion for woodworking as well asthe skills, abilities and desire to teach. When I encounter people like that I get a buzz. When "lunch" was over we shook hands and I walked away still buzzing.
I later bought a video tape he'd one on joinery, but didn't get around to watching it 'til months after the show. I was even more impressed with the guy. Sometime later ads and articles about his school started showing up in woodworking magazines and I found out he also acts as a consultant for several wood and woodworking companies.
A week with him should be a great learning experience and get you well along your way in furniture making with the knowledge and some of the skills of joinery. Have fun, enjoy (and maybe share some of what you learn).

Thanks for the write-up, charlie. I saw him at a woodworking show as well, but just walked up and shook his hand...didn't get to chat. I had the same impression as you, though...he had a kind of light in his eyes that you don't find in everyone you meet.
I figure, over the last year, with only a couple of no-hands-on seminars under my belt, it was time to get me some good edgumacation. Someone to notice my mistakes and show me how to fix 'em. In those seminars, you don't even get to make the mistakes.
I'm a big believer in mistake-based learning! (This does not apply to shop safety, so the lot of you just shut the hell up :-)
