2606 days ago by Zuki | 674 comments »

What do you folks do for a living? I know that some actually woodwork for a living . . . but what do the rest of you do to pay for the new tools in the shed? I’ll start . . . Labour Relations Consultant for a large organization. I have actually been working in Human Resources for about 10 years now. I would like to eventually have some of my woodworking projects bring in a few extra $$$ . . . but I have to get good first :).

Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

1380 days ago by zzzzdoc | 462 comments »

At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...

If you’re a fan of Sketchup for creating woodworking models, then the next obvious step is to use Sketchup to help you create cutlists and layouts. Sketchup plugin Cutlist 4.1 does just that. CutList 4.1 sketchup plugin helps you determine how much of each material you need to produce your design, taking into account nominal sized lumber with allowances for finishing to final size.

DIY Table Saw Fence #1: Table Saw Fence

2424 days ago 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...

Coffee Lounge Closed

1365 days ago by Martin Sojka | 221 comments »

The recent happenings in the forums made me think seriously about the future of LumberJocks. This website has been built on the foundation of woodworking projects and knowledge sharing instead of general chat site for those that just want to buddy around. I came to a conclusion that these two principal differences cannot coexist under one roof. I had to make this tough decision as soon as possible before it is too late. And I decided to go back to the roots of what made LumberJocks so spec...

1108 days ago by Bertha | 204 comments »

No plan. Just some wood and a saw. I need to get my most commonly used planes into some sort of cabinet. I went to the bigbox and got the cheapest pine I could find. Shot some through the ts for a cleat and installed it on the studs. The hutch will be 3 feet tall by 4 feet wide. I’ll start by dovetailing a carcass. Tails first 1:8.
