Another End Grain Board Build.....

09-15-2013 02:19 AM by JL7 | 37 comments »

I’ve seen people posting boards with diamonds and thought that was cool…..I built a diamond board a few weeks ago HERE... and I just finished this one today: So this blogs covers today’s board… For a change, I started with some nice wide timber. No scraps in this board. This is Yellowheart and Tigerwood: Cut into 1.5” by 26” strips (but I should have made them a bit longer). I don’t plan real well on the front end….4 of each ...

Making wind chimes is a really easy weekend project. If you decide to take the time to make a set, spend a little time making them sound pleasant. Check out Lee Hite’s web site, “An Engineering Approach to Wind Chime Design”. It contains everything—and I mean everything—you’ll need to know about chimes.

Tools/Shop/Projects etc. (General Blog) #1: Zero Clearance on a cheap table saw

09-16-2012 04:59 PM by GlennsGrandson | 8 comments »

So I have a cheap, older, table saw. Skilsaw brand. With no intention of upgrading due to space and of course budget.I had made a zero clearance insert for it awhile back… out of plexi-glass which was maybe not the best choice.This insert that I made worked very well but it was a pain to make. During a recent incident in the shop that had to do with a push stick, ripping some thin stock, and a little kickback I no longer have my homemade insert (I always wear my safety goggles). I we...

Secret-compartment pencil holder.

06-08-2012 07:17 PM by Stevinmarin | 34 comments »

I designed this project specifically for kids to make. I thought about what kinds of things I liked as a kid, and anything with a hidden compartment fascinated me. Even today, I would love to have one of those Scooby-Doo spinning bookcases that leads into another room! Anyway, this is an easy project that can be made with the fewest of tools and very little woodworking experience.

Disposable KerfMaker

06-14-2011 08:35 AM by rance | 31 comments »

Well, yes, the Kerf Maker is a very clever jig. I have a different take on its manufacture. I see a reason to have several, NO, Wait… Why not make them DISPOSABLE? :) I had a need to use one today so why not make one. Here it is:  I used a stick of about 1/2” square pine. Yeah, Pine(or is that Poplar?). And some double sided tape. Cut the stick in half. (I’m kinda protective of my tape. Can ya tell?)  Then stick both halves together with the tape. &n...

Face Jointing Wide Boards on a 6" Jointer

11-23-2011 04:02 PM by tenontim | 13 comments »

After commenting and following a post by MichaelJ, I decided that a picture or two is worth a thousand words. So, here’s how I do it. (I had also posted in the past another way, but I like this method better)First, remove the blade guard on your planer. Set the fence to the maximum width.Face joint the board as you normally would, until the jointable surface is flat.You should now have the flat, jointed surface and the “rabbet” from the overhang.This is the spacer board, whi...

I am using Hard Maple and Walnut both are surfaced flat and cut 1” x 9” x 14&...

Table saw miter sled

10-01-2011 03:35 AM by Stevinmarin | 24 comments »

Simple, yet very effective sled for making 45 degree miters. It’s so easy to make, I started it at 11:00 this morning, shot and edited the video by 4:00! This has to be some sort of record for me. Of course, if you make just the sled and not the video, it’ll take about an hour.
