Here is what I did today! This is a grizzly riser block and a rockwell saw. Worked pretty well… Little machining on drilling out the riser block to fit the rockwell saw. I have included some pictures of it.. I am going to get a 3/4” post for the guide post cause the 1/2” works but takes a bit of fiddling to get it straight all the time because of the extra space. I have included some pics. Sorry the images are sideways. Here is the riser block installed… Not seamle...
In this video I show you how to make a simple yet elegant lift lid box. These little boxes can be made with with different woods to give them their own character, and due to the simplicity they can be made in batches.. They make a great gift to give someone. The boxes in the videos are made from Spalted Pecan, White Oak, & Mahogany. Each Box was finished with 2 coats of Danish Oil to bring out the natural beauty and color of the woods. Also in the video I talk about an upcoming project...

This is a new journey for me to record video while building a project. I hope everyone will enjoy and learn from my experience.Any suggestions or comments are always appreciated.
I won a REALLY beat up bedrock 603 off of the bay recently. It had a crack on one cheek and a mean twist to the bed. So I figured for 20$, I would see if it could bring it back to life. After a little welding (I suck at stick welding) Placed in to the oven to make the welds actually fileable and to relax the casting. After bringing it up to orange heat, I let it cool slowly in the box overnight. It was still a little warm the next day. This is after it cooled. and some f...
A Quick, Accurate Way To 45 Your Corners If you build boxes at all, eventually you tire of cranking your blade from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and back…I did. So I built this simple jig, and now I can cut all 8 ends of a box accurately in about 5 minutes, AND STILL LEAVE MY TABLE SAW SET AT 90 DEGREES. Assumption: I am assuming that you have already laid out the board for your sides and have cut all four sides of your box to length. Short side, long side, short side, long side...
Setting up saw blades for slot cuts in box corners. Here is a quick way to set up your saw for cutting spline slots using a spline cutting jig and a dado blade. This method involves no measuring and take only a minute or two. The trick is to use brass set up bars. I keep my set close to the dado saw in my shop. Hold the largest bar on a 45 degree angle on the corner of the box. Add other bars until you get a combination that is just a little under the width of the box ...

Early on, a woodworker is forced to decide upon a sharpening system or product. And I know we have some folks on Ljs who are just entering the wonderful world of hand tools. This is my attempt to not leave those people hangin when it comes to sharpening. Clearly, planes and chisels are just handsome paperweights if they’re not sharp.Let me start by saying that I am far from an expert. Shoot I’ve only been using and sharpening hand tools effectively for about a year. I spent the pr...
