INCRA Router Table Cabinet #1: Work in progress . . .

02-16-2018 02:18 AM by copythat | 6 comments »

I bought an INCRA router top and stand last year when I got back into woodworking. I recently decided to built a cabinet for it using INCRA’s free plans located here: The project is moving along and should be done this weekend . . . if I can just get time in the shop! I don’t think my wife liked the red stain finish I went with. I thought it looked pretty cool; I guess it’s the “Craftsman” fan ...

A Historically Interesting Handsaw

02-16-2018 01:01 AM by summerfi | 13 comments »

A Historically Interesting Handsaw I usually don’t give Warranted Superior saws a second look. It’s not that many of them aren’t good saws, but because their value is comparatively lower than vintage name brand saws. When this saw recently popped up on an online auction, though, I couldn’t pass it by. It’s not every day that you see a saw from Montana, much less one with an etch that includes the name of my home town, Missoula. HistoryThis saw was sold in the Kalispell branch store of Misso...

Steel Rule on Saw and Tape Measure Not Matching

02-16-2018 12:46 AM by IantheTinker | 10 comments »

Hello all, I added a steel rule to my table saw fence rail today and noticed that it doesn’t match up with my tape measure. When I have it set to 32” both match. However, the closer I get to “0”, the greater the difference becomes. I first noticed when I made a cut at 20 1/2”, but when I double checked with my tape measure it said 20 9/16”. So I shifted the indicator line to the right by 1/16”. However, now when my fence is all the way to the blade this is what my indicator line shows. ...

New Peterbuilt truck #2: Airbag suspension

02-15-2018 09:19 PM by HotRod1 | 5 comments »

I took a 1/2” dowel and drilled a 3/8” hole about 3/8” deep, then drill a 1/4” hole through. Then to make the bottom, I took a 3/8” dowel and drilled a 1/4” hole through and glue the spring in place. and put a cap on the top of the bag. Here are some pictures of the trailing arm, shackle and axel. Still in the test fit mode as I haven’t made the drive shafts yet. As soon as I get it complete, time to start on the front.

• Mystery Cabinet #1: The Problem

02-15-2018 03:20 PM by Ron Aylor | 16 comments »

The Problem – In my first shop lay-out, I had my bench positioned along a wall under a small window. I had my tool chest at the end of the bench, and pegs and racks for various tools on the wall above, all within easy reach. This was a great set-up for a number of years.  As time went on, I decided to move the bench to the middle of the shop for 360° access, and build a tool wall in the corner …   … this left the original pegs and racks, now cluttered with all sorts of things,...

Table Saw Crosscut Sled

02-15-2018 03:51 AM by wrenchhead | 5 comments »

This is a must have in my shop. This essential table saw accessory will allow me to make accurate repeatable cuts on narrow work pieces and panels. I built a general use sled, fit the runners and square up the fence using the 5 cut method. I learned this method from watching the Wood Whisperer and William Ng build their crosscut sleds. Check out their videos for a more detailed explanation of the fence squaring process. Thanks for watching!

kitchen cabinets #20: I'm back and all kitchen drawers are in!

02-15-2018 12:07 AM by MC | 3 comments »

The holidays and some other projects temporarily put the kitchen project on hold but I am back at it. The deep drawers were time consuming as there was a limited supply of maple that was wide enough. I used this material on the sides which is the most visible. The fronts and backs required jointing up the panels. I came across some nice figured cherry but not enough to do all of the drawer fronts, just enough for four of the drawers. I used this material on four of the deep drawers...
