Re: driveway gates

you would create a haunch in a wide tenon more to strengthen the mortice as in certain cases the mortice walls are thin and need bolstering in the middle this is purely subjective to the thickness of the material.

Re: driveway gates

Haunching is usually carried out on a corner joint say the top and bottom rail of a door so as to completely contain the tenon in the mortice, on wide rails (usually middle rails) the haunch is usually in the middle of the rail thereby preventing the need for an overlong mortice. The short tenon on ...

With a felder you will need a minimum of a chip extractor as the cutters will block up and seriously effect the timber finish. modern machines are designed to work with extraction as they throw all the spoil in the direction of a 100/125mm pipe

Re: Rubbing down solid oak door - how far?

Try cleaning it off with some oxalic acid diluted with warm water, that should get rid of any black marks and revive the timber.

You then need to neutralise with water, let it dry and cut back the raised grain prior to finishing
