Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

Jigs and Fixtures #1: Planer Sled

2281 days ago by Mike Lingenfelter | 18 comments »

As part of my workbench project I needed to mill up a somewhat large piece of lumber for the main chop on my face vise. It was larger than my 6” Jointer could handle. I needed to find an easy way to mill the 2 large faces. I have been wanting to make a Planer Sled for awhile now, so that’s what I did. I based mine on one Keith Rust did for Fine Woodworking “Flatten Boards without a Jointer”. This article is available at finewoodworking.com, but it is only available if you have a ...

$5 Incremental Stop Block

1326 days ago by SPalm | 51 comments »

I think this is pretty cool. It is more than an incremental positioner. It is a removable stop block that can be replaced exactly where it was, or any distance from that original spot. The increment is every 1/32 inch, with micro adjust. I am still playing with the idea, and would appreciate any comments...OK, the threaded rods on top of the fence and inside the stop block do not move. The threads on them just lock into each other, and then the plastic bolt is tightened. The threads just ...

1415 days ago by McLeanVA | 50 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #9: Figuring out staining

1921 days ago by BethMartin | 18 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been playing with staining and finally have something to show for it. I spent about a week experimenting – and I think I ended up with more test boards that actual boards that needed stain – lol! After all my tests, I found this woodwhisperer’s video:http://thewoodwhisperer.com/73-coloring-blotchy-woods/ Which was EXACTLY what I needed to see. I think I could’ve cut out a lot of testing if I’d seen...
