Biscuit Jointer Spline Jig Build

06-01-2016 03:50 PM by WoodCrafts67 | 2 comments »

This is a Jig I made Because I needed something to hold my Jointer steady as I used it to make spline cuts into my wooden boxes and picture frames, I have been using the biscuit jointer for this process for a while now. This is why I came up with this and it works very well and keeps the boxes/Frames very stable during the cutting process. I use two types of clamps. One for the oblong type boxes and The beak type clamp in for complete square type boxes. Below is the link to my you...

If you’re planning to build this stool, I suggest you get them as the images herein are of pretty poor resolution. My time in the shop is pretty limited and building shop furniture is not something I particularly enjoy (I’m more of a fine furniture kinda guy), so when I do feel the need to make something for use in the workshop I like it to be simple, sturdy and quick to build....

09-21-2009 03:49 AM by poroskywood | 15 comments »

Start again by taping two blanks together. This time In stead of making opposing S cuts I’ll follow the S pattern with each cut. (I get a little sloppy, but it works out OK).

03-06-2012 12:24 AM by shipwright | 23 comments »

Disclaimer: I’m no video producer and I didn’t use an editor so you will get to laugh at me a couple of times…... OK all the time maybe. There are actually three clips in the video. They all involve s...
