Drill Powered Table Crank for a Drill Press/Pillar Drill

06-08-2018 11:16 PM by Dan Thomas | 2 comments »

I wanted to build a new drill press table, but the crank on my drill press that raises and lowers the table gets in the way, and I end up having to cut out part of the table. Like this: So I made a crank extension with a right-angle adapter that allows me to use my drill to raise and lower the table: If you want to learn more, check out my YouTube video. Feel free to ask questions, or post comments! Or go directly to the video: https://youtu.be/9kY3fk6Q-kA

Personal Projects #1: Steamer Trunk ~ Blanket Chest

04-29-2018 08:14 PM by John Smith | 7 comments »

A few years ago, my 8yo granddaughter saw an antique steamer trunk at a yard sale and fell in love with it. Going through school, she learned that that style of trunk was used back in the days before airplane travelwas common and people traveled on cruise ships such as the Queen Mary (and the Titanic).for their vacations that could last up to 6 months or more. So they carried ever...

HokieMojo was right: I should have been blogging this, from the get-go. So … playing catch-up … I’ll re-create the series, and simply link to the old ones. And away we go ! http://lumberjocks.com/topics/23475 [no need to comment on anything you’ve already seen/commented on. I just want to make it easier for others … who may have interest … to follow the RAS project in chronological order—a HUGE benefit to the “series” feature ...

Fixing a knot hole that got sucked up in the planer with a christmas tree

12-06-2017 05:50 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

Watch it on YouTube or read about it below I am working on another barn door for a client, and this door has created a few challenges for me. The client really loves the look of the gray weathered wood and wanted it on both sides of the door. The only problem is that most barn wood is only gray on one side. The other side that faces the inside of the barn is brown because it never sees the weather.So I decided to create barn wood veneer so I could veneer both sides of the door using th...

Magnetic Fitting System for Dust Collection

10-11-2017 10:06 PM by davemoorefurniture | 3 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks, I’m not here to sell you anything. However I do want you to check out this product I’ve developed called Magport. I’ve been a woodworker for many years and I began developing this magnetic fitting system several years ago in an attempt to make connecting and disconnecting flexible dust collection hose fast enough to keep up with my workflow. Often I rearrange machinery to accommodate super long boards which requires flexibility in the dust collection. ...

Lock Miter Router Bit Setup

08-09-2017 06:36 PM by Rich | 23 comments »

There was some discussion about lock miter bits on Rick M’s Deals thread. I didn’t want to muck up his thread with off-topic conversation, so I am tossing this out there for anyone who is not certain about setting up lock miter bits. First, a diagram (the numbers shown are for the Infinity Lock Miter Jr. Router Bit item #55-502). Note that the markings are for reference only and, particularly in the case of the fence location, don’t precisely represent the actual set up....

Planning the Makeover #3: SketchUp Plans - Miter Saw & Router Mobile Workstation

02-19-2010 06:27 AM by Jeison | 14 comments »

I had some fun with this one, it still needs a bit of tweaking, need to add some details and adjust some dimensions, but I thought I’d throw it up to share until I have time to go back over it. I combined a pretty standard style Router cabinet from an issue of Wood magazine, with a Miter Saw cart from Fine Woodworking, and plopped them both onto a mobile base from another issue of Wood. The Miter Saw station has a flip up, extendable wing on the left side, and on the right side the ...

Shop Dust Collection

02-05-2017 10:26 PM by Fiddy | 2 comments »

Thought I’d share my dust collection set up since I struggled to find something that gave me what I was looking for. Part of what I’ve been working on lately has been my “must have” shop projects and the first was dust collection. I had an older Jet 650 that I bought of CL for about $125 a few years back. When I was at my old house, I would just wheel it to which ever tool I was using and absolutely hated that. Most often I just wouldn’t use it. I had a few ob...

Shop Tips & Tricks #17: Making Painting & Varnishing Easier, Cleaner and Cheaper

08-06-2016 08:30 PM by GnarlyErik | 5 comments »

Today it occurred to me while working in my shop, I have used a little trick for decades which is handy, saves money, is neat and tidy, and costs almost nothing. I didn’t think to pass this on before. To make up for that, here it is now: Using paint or varnish out of a can is always kind of a messy operation. This is not an issue if you are going to use the whole can of paint, but if you only want part of it for a smaller project, it is. You pour paint out of a can into another conta...

This is a companion blog to a project: Mobile Router Center for the Small to Medium Shop………..with lots of GIZMOS! The project is found here: Router Table Project I put duplicates of the project pictures here for easy reference:......

Each solves an issue and makes use of the table and base more facile. I will s...
