In another conversation about the 4100 I mentioned an outfeed extension I made for mine, and I thought I’d post some pictures. This is made to add onto the Bosch-produced extension (the metal bits). The Bosch extension is fine for 90% of what I do, but when ripping things upwards of 4 feet, it’s nice to have a little more. This locks into the little grooves intended for miter slot clearance and sits just below the metal extension to avoid snags. It folds up for easy storage. ...
After some thought and more than a little scribbling I came up with this bracket to hold the motor. Its made of 15mm birch ply and so relatively robust .May not look much but in my experience simplest is best. Here is the motor installed.You basically loosen both bolts. Hold the motor up slightly to fix the belt to the appropriate pulleys. Let it drop to take up the slack and tighten the bolts back up. The pivot point is the top right of the three holes.The darn thing works in all three speed...

Made some more progress on the wine rack this weekend. My goal was to complete the small racks that hold the necks of the bottles. Each required 5 semicircular holes at 1 1/2” diameter each. I was smart enough to realize that the centers of the large rack holes would be the same as the small ones, so I lined them all up against a board clamped to my bench (to keep them aligned) and marked the center lines. Lesson learned: I really need a drill press table. Up to now I’v...
About three years ago my brother Brian passed away at the age of 44. Brian was the epicenter of our family. He was born with a mental disability but pushed through life challenges like all of us, mostly capable of handing himself on his own. Brian was a people person, the unofficial mayor of the little town we grew up. The kind of person that no matter where we were in the US, Brian would meet a friend. Unfortunately, my father passed about 6 months prior to Brian due to Leukemia. M...
First the disclaimer…I have been teaching woodworking classes for several years. Just so you know up front, this is not a sales pitch, just a look into why someone wood (pun intended) want to spend time and money to take a class when there is so much free information on the web. There are countless woodworking forums, blogs and online magazines packed full of useful information. As fast as you can click your mouse, you can find a boat load of information on every aspect of woodworking. ...

Hello everybody. I’ve got a 4 part series on how to make a hand carved box using mostly hand tool. Not much more to say other that, enjoy the show.Oh yeah, Safety Dan says “hi”.
On my first few drives to my new job way up in North Hollywood I passed by a large, grassy park loaded up with – by my standards – enormous trees. I vowed to check them out, and on Wednesday of last week, I took a lunchtime walk down there. It’s only a few blocks, though they are large, city blocks. It’s probably not a full 10-minute walk, so it’s not bad. Looking it up later, I learned that it’s North Hollywood Park. The Days of Our Lives cast did a ...
