Router Table Re-do #3: The Router Lift

11-23-2013 10:52 PM by HuckD | 2 comments »

The router lift is finished. I used plans from John Heisz and they are just superb. The plans include detail drawings with dimensions for each part, good explanations for the assembly and a Sketchup file that allows you to explore the design and see how everything works together. The completed lift works very smoothly – I can’t wait to put it to use. First, some pictures of the lift before installation. It’s just sitting on top of my current router table. ...

A new method for storing my hand tools and allow me to get rid of my pegboard. I decided on using french cleats to hang screwdrivers, pliers and other items. It’s a really flexible system that lets you get creative customizing it.

How I made my Intersected cutting board

02-18-2011 08:54 AM by GaryK | 31 comments »

Here is how I made my Intersected cutting board posted here. There seems to be a lot of interest in this board so here is a blog on how I made it. First of all here’s what I planned on making. It’s the top one. After I got both the circles intersected I liked how it looked with the rounded corners so I just added in the “wedge shapes”at the top and bottom and called it done. I think that it makes it very distinctive also. As one person guessed I ...

Thicknessing drum sander - shop made

02-25-2008 11:09 PM by YorkshireStewart | 59 comments »

I’ve had a fancy for a thicknessing sander but a 10-20 inch model costs the equivalent of $1000 US over here and there’s no way I can justify that sort of spending so I looked into making one of my own. There’s no shortage of help to be had on the world-wide-web. The links I found useful include: Dominic’s Woodshop Kawika Ukulele Sander Ray Lanham Woodcentral Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery Mother earth The Woodshop Art Herrick Luthiers’ Friend Nick’s drum S...

Let's Build a Magazine Case

08-29-2010 05:38 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...

Workshop Build #22: Tools on cleats

07-08-2010 02:15 AM by ~Julie~ | 6 comments »

I need to make some tool holders to get my tools a place of there own, where I know they are when I need them. I am going to make them so that they are able to hang on cleats, which I already have in part of my shop. I found a picture in Woodsmith magazine showing a way to hold tools. There were no plans, but it looked easy enough to make my own without how-to instructions. I wanted to hold three tools for now, my battery powered drill, my electric drill and my jigsaw. To figure out ...

DIY Table Saw Fence #1: Table Saw Fence

12-10-2007 07:21 AM by Hutch | 238 comments »

This is my old tablesaw fence. It is a little hard to see from the photo, but I cracked it trying to “micro-adjust” it. So I started to look for an aftermarket fence, of which there are some really nice ones out there. I just didn’t want to spend quite as much as they were asking because I have a previously owned Central Machinery tablesaw. I also was curious to see if I could come up with my own fence. I was worried about two things with most diy fence systems that...
