Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #8: Cutting the Corner 45 Degree Angles

499 days ago by Boxguy | 17 comments »

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...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #7: Process For Setting Depth for Spline Cuts

499 days ago by Boxguy | 7 comments »

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 ...

Sharpening 101 for Newbies- What Should I Use? #1: Sharpening Methods I've Tried

505 days ago by BigRedKnothead | 22 comments »

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...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

517 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

540 days ago by Oldtool | 5 comments »

When building my wife’s new chest on chest cabinet, I decided to add a little something a little different than the plans that I had on hand, which would be new to me & adds a new challenge for me overcome. The basic plan for this storage cabinet came from Glenn Huey’s book “fine Furniture for a lifetime”, the Chippendale Entertainment Center. This same piece of furniture is featured in another of his book by Popular Woodworking, “Design & Build Your Ideal Entertainment Center”, and i...

Bandsaw Blades Phoenix

546 days ago by raydawg | 2 comments »

I am one who prefers to support the local businesses when I can. I am not incentivized by Bill to sell more blades, just thought I would pass it along. I’m going to go pickup a couple blades from him and i’ll follow up with reviews of what how they do.

Tip of the day! Use a push stick!

551 days ago by OregonBurls | 30 comments »

THE ART OF NOT TAKING A TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!Yesterday I awoke out of my daze of admiring a quilted maple block with a shocking sensation and blood everywhere. The dull blade on my bandsaw did not help and using my hands to push the beautiful block through didn’t help either. Simple word of advise which many of you can attest too.
