This is a Off-Checker pattern I call “Drunken Alice in Wonderland” The “serendipitous” nature of this piece is appealing in a far out sort of way. Here Goes… So first I prepare the Material. I am using Hard Maple and Walnut both are surfaced flat and cut 1” x 9” x 14&...

Parallel jaw leg vise

756 days ago by Boatman53 | 17 comments »

For about a year now I’ve been trying to refine the detail of my parallel jaw leg vise and I think I’ve got all the kinks worked out. My son put together this video of the bench I built this past winter that uses the chain leg vise. I’m in the process of getting quotes for the parts so I can offer these for sale. I’ve been making all the parts myself up to this point and I’m not a cnc. Take a look at the video and I welcome comment and discussions. It can be ret...

Routed Out Serving Tray

611 days ago by ~Julie~ | 15 comments »

I decided to use some of my wood stock to make some trays. I started with a piece of wood that I needed help identifying and had help from fellow lumberjocks to do that. It turned out it was birch which I planed down and cut to the size of 25” long x 7 1/2” wide x 13/16” thick: For 3” at each end, on the underside of the piece, I routed out a depth of 5/16” using a bowl bit: (This was cleaned up afterwards with a sander.) Here you can see the profile ...

DIY Table Saw Fence #1: Table Saw Fence

2425 days ago by Hutch | 238 comments »

This is my old tablesaw fence. It is a little hard to see from the photo, but I cracked it trying to “micro-adjust” it. So I started to look for an aftermarket fence, of which there are some really nice ones out there. I just didn’t want to spend quite as much as they were asking because I have a previously owned Central Machinery tablesaw. I also was curious to see if I could come up with my own fence. I was worried about two things with most diy fence systems that...
