Charles Mackintosh Inspired Computer Desk #8: Finishing up the Odds and Ends

10-21-2017 01:19 PM by EarlS | 2 comments »

Even with all of the “woodworking” complete there were still a fair number of things that needed to be finished. Generally, I keep a “To Do” list throughout the project to keep track of what needs to be done and in what order. At the end of the project, I start a new list for “Finishing”. Obviously, it includes the sanding, staining, finish, and wax. But the list also includes other things that need to be completed for the project to be “finished&...

Tablesaw Fence Caddy #1: An Organizer for my Stuff on my Tablesaw

10-21-2017 02:35 AM by HappyHowie | 4 comments »

I read a Woodsmith newsletter the other day where they suggested a small organizer for use on your table saw fence. I took that idea and made a larger one to fit on my Bob Van Dyke style multi-use RIP fence. This RIP fence has a base on which I can fasten throw-away sacrificial fences for say burying a saw blade or DADO set. I also made a tall melamine fence with a guide like Bob uses to cut tenons on my table saw. An image of my multi-use fence is given below. You can tell how muc...

How about tractor wheels? - Dutchy Here's the first wheel jig blog..Well here’s another jig pretty close to the other straight tread jig but able to be moved around for different angle treads.

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #2: Clamping main panel

10-21-2017 01:01 AM by Reinan | 0 comments »

After spending some time making a few pairs of clamp cauls, and struggling with putting a convex face on them using a block plane. I managed to get the main panel glued and clamped. The cauls helped to take some of the bow out of the walnut edges and the twist out of one of the pieces of maple. Wish they had done more because I have quite a bit of sanding to do to get everything flush. Joints came out nice and tight though.

Shop Projects #2: Table Saw Miter Sled

10-20-2017 05:42 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

After having made my 1st table saw sled, I knew I had to have a miter sled as well. A few weeks ago I really found myself at a loss when I needed to make some accurate 45-degree angles for the clock I was making for my wife. I had previously watched a number of videos on this subject and found a method that looked like it would suit my needs and available materials. Here is a pretty good picture of the sled I cannot tell you just how happy I am with this sled! if you take a few ...
