MDF Spline Cutting Sled #1: The Sketchup Chronicles

1249 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

I was flipping through a catalog the other day and happened upon a spline cutting sled that this company was selling. I really liked the design of it, so I went on their website and learned all about it, watched videos etc. The only problem was, I didn’t want to pay the (what I thought was) high price for something that I could probably make myself…not to mention I’m broke, and cheap, and have enough scrap materiel’s lying around that I can make it almost for free. I...

Table Saw Workstation, Craftsman 113.xx #1: Step 1 Complete

684 days ago by DSnyder | 7 comments »

1. Start2. Finish! So…I got the fence installed on my new table saw workstation today, and realized that I am way behind on sharing this. The problem is, any time I get on LJ I end up looking at other people’s cool stuff! This is not an exhaustive list of the resources and references I utilized, but these are the ones that I bookmarked and came back to several times. Some of the other ‘table saw workstations’ on this site are RIDICULOUSLY drool-worthy. My goal wa...

Table Saw Workstation, Craftsman 113.xx #2: Not finished, but enough progress for an update

611 days ago by DSnyder | 5 comments »

So, here is the current status. Doesn’t look like much progress from 2 months ago, but several things have actually taken place: 1. Built homemade belt guard (yes I could have bought one off ebay or from Sears but this was more fun)2. Installed safety switch and wiring.3. Added dust bin under the saw using scrap formica material. The design might be original? I was planning on building a “ramp” down to a hose connector, but saw this scrap and thought I would try it. Seale...

Everything there is of course completely free. If you have any comments or suggestions feel free to drop them in the Contact form on the site. I hope this can be of some use to someone. Have a gre...

200+ Wine Bottle balancers #1: Wine bottle balancers for the wedding

711 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 9 comments »

About 10 years ago, I made a batch of those wine bottle balance pieces for Christmas presents. When my step daughter was here, talking about gifts for the guests who make the long drive to her wedding, I suggested these would be pretty nice. I was thinking like 1 for each couple, so maybe I’d be in for 50 or so pieces. Her first request was for 275 pieces! DOH! She later downsized it to 125, but I already had lumber cut for 200+ so she’s getting about 175 and I’m keeping th...

Ideas from my shop #3

2316 days ago by David | 5 comments »

April 16, 2008 I was looking in a magazine at some jigs different guys had built and I marvel at how clean their shops are and how pristine the jigs are: all that new wood and finish. Can’t say mine are anything like that ~ almost always made from scrap and then stuff that isn’t usable because it is damaged, has water spots or stains, etc. But I thought I’d share how I sand small stuff and edges with my belt sander. I made a holder for the sander then clamp it to...
