Redoing the SS miter gauge so it will work on the Dewalt.. When I got a SS a couple a months ago it was in pretty bad shape but I’ve since turned it into a drill dress sooo have no need for the miter gauge, plus the bar was bent.My other SS didn’t come with one but since I won’t be using the table mod no problem.OK to get to the point I love the SS miter gauge the holding fetcher the stops at 90 and 45, just one great tool, but I want to use it on my Dewalt, it’s mi...
This is sort of a continuation of an old blog about 3 Shopbuilt Brass Tools. I recently made these two little tools out of brass strip, 1/16 in. thick by 1/2 inch wide by 12 inches long. I wanted to make a small brass bevel gauge ever since I saw one that Mads made. The Pythagorean gauge I only recently found accidentally here on Lumberjocks.. Its usefulness is probably marginal, but it’s certainly a conversation starter. It measures just under 8 inches long. The be...
One of our respected LumberJocks members was featured in the news! You will definitely want to take a moment to read the article.

This week, I cut out a semi circle shape out of my legs to give my stand a fresh look to it, then I proceeded to clamp my legs to the side pieces and screwed them together.
The following is intended to document my process for building a lowboy. The build is primarily done with hand tools but I did end up using power tools as the project got going. This build was for a independent study so I had access to the university lab’s machines. The lowboy I chose looks like a transition piece between William and Mary to Queen Anne. This low boy was featured in PWM by Glen Huey, but I never ended up reading the issue, I made the plans from pictures. Starting the p...
I would like to share some work in progress photos of the carved icon frames and strips for the icon shelves I used to carve when I was working in the church workshop (2013-2014). Icon frames: Carved strips for icon shelves:
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1726: More Updates, Sales and a Newsletter
I have so many wonderful plans ahead of me! As I dream about our new, larger home as well as my very own studio, my head is filled with more ideas than ever. While I am proud of the way we made our business work while living in and working out of a small, one bedroom place, I can't help but feel wonderful that the time here will soon be behind me and both Keith and I will be able to spread our wings and really FLY!I am hoping that I am not deluding myself into thinking that with mor...
Well I have eventually tracked down some documented information on the elusive sharpening angles, and the vague references to the mystery two cutting edge type Augers. This is the latest doctrine available to my knowledge, however as always if I am incorrect please let me know! Here we go breaking News! Page 135Note: There is also a reference to enlarging the chip extraction port. (it must have been originally small and evolved to what we see today) possibly from users enlarging th...
I saw a project posted the other day about a passive amplifier for your cell phone. I liked the idea and I’m always looking for small projects to use up the smaller scraps from other projects. It seems like I’ve got a constantly growing collection of boards that are too small to easily find a use for, but too big to feel good about getting rid of. So when I saw the passive amplifiers, I immediately thought about my growing scrap pile and my wife and two daughters who are cons...
Now the flasks are placed in the oven upside down and then heated up , first to 300 degrees F and held there for 2 hours so that the wax can run out of the flask.

While the flasks are cooling down in the oven to 1100 F the bronz...
