Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM 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...

Evolution of my router planer #7: Version 1.2c (had to tweak it again)

08-08-2011 06:52 PM by TZH | 5 comments »

Found out the trex clamps I talked about in my last version ( weren’t strong enough to withstand the pressure exerted by the bolt going through, plus didn’t hold the sled rigidly enough (too much diagonal movement). So, back to the drawing board. Figured a clamp should function like a clamp no matter what the design is, so I used 2×4’s for the stationary clamp (first photo) and 2×2’s (oak – second photo) for the mov...

Intarsia Basics #3: Let’s Do Some Cutting!

04-19-2012 02:25 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...

Natural Edge Burl Wood Furniture #1: Box Elder Burl Coffee Table

10-12-2009 09:30 PM by OregonBurls | 7 comments »

Hi everyone, I started this project a few days ago. It is a Box Elder Burl that I hollowed out with an arbortech and plan on getting a 36” glass top for it. I am wandering how to finish the outside. Due to the pressure washing. It has made the surface a little ruff. So I am not sure if I should sand it and just show the figure or keep it natural. I still have a little bit more of hollowing it out. I also plan on sanding the inside and figure out how to make the figure pop out visuall...

Here’s the project showing a Remington 600 stock carved from a figured walnut blank. ! And now for the finished rifle! A Remington 600 Mohawk in .222 Remington. Left side view. And the right side of the rifle. The customer finished the rifle and it’s ready to take to the shooting range. The second rifle stock the same customer finished was this pr...

Evolution of my router planer #4: Version 1.2a

10-21-2010 06:01 PM by TZH | 4 comments »

Version 1.2a At this point I decided to get more “radical” in my design approach. I removed two of the cross rails (found out through experience that I didn’t need them anyway). Then I took the corner poles out of the flanges and put a “sleeve” on the side of my table for the corner poles to slide into (see photo below). Electrical conduit clamps work great for attaching the sleeves. This design also allowed me to adjust the height of the router sled in...

Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

03-18-2012 10:53 PM by KoryK | 41 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...
