Shop stuff #58: Track for a circular saw

09-25-2016 11:37 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I needed a track saw to cut a slab to make a coffee table. So I made one. This is how I did mine. By using the table saw to cut a dado in the base, the track is as accurate as a table saw. View on YouTube

Trestle Table #19: Multi-use RIP Fence JIG

10-20-2016 12:45 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

Although I referenced Boy Van Dyke’s Fine Woodworking Magazine article about his multi-use RIP fence jig in a prior blog post, I thought I should include more photos showing the melamine fence that I bolt to the RIP fence jig in order to cut my tenons on my Saw Stop table saw. I made two versions of this melamine fence; one is the height specified in the magazine’s article. The other fence is two inches taller than the magazine’s article. I also implemented Bob’...

dust stuff #12: Things coming up

07-11-2012 08:59 PM by JoeyG | 0 comments »

I just posted my Sword Display Case, that was a lot of fun to build. Nice easy lines and basic construction. Next inline I have several boxes on order. Several with inlays on one kind or another. I have also landed a custom bedroom suite. This should be a extremely fun build. It’s been years since I have done any bedroom furniture so I am looking forward to it. The best part for me is that my customer wants me to build it one piece at a time. With my limited storage space this r...

Blast from My not so Distant Past! #2: Bread Box!

07-26-2012 01:01 PM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Too see more images on this and other projects, please go to Pallet Craft! Hello all! This was a gift that I made for my fiance the year before our wedding. This breadbox was my first wood working creation that I built with my own two hands, so please excuse the crudeness of the door! It is all purchased wood that I picked up from a hardware store where I went to school. On each side I carved my wife’s (fiance then) favorite flower (Calla Lily) and burned it with a butane lighter ...

Intarsia #14: Lilly Cross Day 3

09-27-2012 01:41 AM by TripleB | 0 comments »

When things turn bad, it seems to snowball! In my last post I was saying how happy I was that everything was going so well (Yes I know that post was a while ago at this point, sorry bout that), and it was, until I tried to lay the Lilly out to match the flower to the stem. It simply would not work because the stem was not thick enough. The problem is, I was so concerned about wrapping the stem around the back, I never considered how high it would need to be on the front. Whoops! I intend to l...

the tool tower fails

12-06-2016 04:13 PM by oldguy2 | 0 comments »

If you go to my home page and projects, I have a tool tower with pegboard sides and next to the router table.I think the original idea was taken from wood or some other shop organization ideas. They had a 2 ft by 2ft base with frame up to 8 feet and slide in trays for power tools. Pegboard sides gave more outside storage and casters made it mobile. I think they had a mobile base for storage and tool stand. So I modified a metal stand adding the top, it already had the casters and a botto...

Building my wooden Screw #9: Attempt of creating the screw...

12-08-2016 08:40 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

I don’t have any pics of the process, but the aftermath. In this picture you can see my attempt on the screw. A couple of things I learned. My incorrect thought process would be that the dowels used to hold the guild block/nut together would be enough when creating the screw. Well, I was wrong and that ended up getting pushed out and caused the grove in dowel. The whole upper part of the dowel was my first attempt that I took off on the lathe – the second part you can somewhat...
