So, now it’s time to put some parts together. I started with the leg assembly’s first. I decided to use 3-#20 biscuits, glue and screws. I thought about pocket screws, but I think for the legs the biscuits, glue and screws will be the strongest. I referenced all my slot cuts from the fence..this is important..either use the fence or the base, but don’t use both or you may have some alignment problems, depending on how your biscuit joiner is set up… Pretty straig...

I had a table top to glue up this weekend and was looking to build a jig to get better results adding biscuits to align the boards during glue up. I made a mistake on my last set of glue-ups and thought the boards were flush, but when I pulled them out of the clamps they were not even and required a lot of work to flatten. I don’t like extra work and would rather use some common sense. There are a number of jigs on this site and in the trade mags that show how to fix the base of a ...
I received a set of Stanley 750 chisels from my wife for my birthday months ago and decided that they and my planes needed a place that was easy to get to and easy on the eye.Pictures are worth more than a thousand words. I started with the plane till so I could get a general idea of the size of the cabinet.Then using No3 (third grade cherry) boards planed down to 820 thou I edge joined using biscuits narrow boards to get up to over 9 1/2” wide, after joining the boards I planed the ...
My last couple projects I got a little bogged down and didn’t get to recording them, so this is kind of jumping back on the horse as far as keeping track. Anyway, the project I’m working on right now is one I’ve done before. I’m making a replica of this one that I did about a year ago; Here’s my progress on it for today; The top half glued up, still have to glue those two slabs together and cut. The face frame cut to width and length, on a...

Well yes it has been a while since I did anything. But I thought well I better actually start well finish doing the stands since Robbie has actually plumbed our Dishwasher… kinda was the deal. Anyway this is kinda the idea I have been thinking about for a while. Laminated pine to the rimu and cut. Just needs a good sand. Then the base and the top. I do have to make another top plate as the last one was not quite long enough. Anyway it will be sanded and then glued and screwed. We need ...
Well, It’s been a long time since I have posted anything on here, and I figured that since I have already started a new project that isn’t complete yet, this would be the perfect time. For the past couple of years, I have been wanting to build a router table ala Norm. Well, my birthday was last friday (March 27) and my wife was asking me what I wanted. Well, long story short, I started out with a couple sheets of 3/4” oak plywood, and a sheet of MDF. This past weekend...
Having one’s tools on wheels, providing mobility in the work shop is great. Have a double duty station that is not only mobile but helps you gain back valuable bench space… now that’s the “cat’s meow.” The drill currently sits on the work bench while the planer is on a make-shift rolling cart I’ve seen here on LJ and on You Tube these flip tables. But better yet, Hank, a local wood worker has one I’ve seen in person and I certainly see how helpful it is. If you are interested i...
