FINALLY! First, needed some rebates for the screen’s frame to sit in. Don’t have a wide enough bit for the router, BUT, I do happen to have a couple planes that seem to work nicely This one is a Traditional Chinese Edge Plane I build awhile ago. Set the fence for 1/2” and push it along until it is almost all the way down to …3/16” deep. Then go over it with an Iron plane, since it does have a depth stop Hmmm, Noodles, anyone? Ok, rebates all lo...

Laid out some toys but this was just the tip of the iceberg. Set up a “high-tech workbench” after using a “saw tub” to cut what I needed off a plank. Then the rest gets clamped in place Then clamp the new saw bench top in place for a little joinery work used this old saw to make a few cuts checked the angled parts with a gauge, and a small handplane to smooth it down. the chisels did most of the removal work. angle is about 12 degrees. Time to ma...
Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...

I am currently gathering materials needed to build a TableSaw Workstation that can be seen in the Shopnotes issue #89 The question for this series is what are some of your ways of cutting down large sheets of plywood or MDF and getting them squared up?? “Using a Benchtop size Table saw” I D...

I was looking for a clamp that could hold a glue up of two 45 deg strips of wood to make a block. Basically two triangles glued together to make a square. All the woodworking site searches produced nothing. Then I came across these clamps on a welding website. http://www.stronghandtools.com/products/pdt_img/pgv_pic.html I ordered three of them from my local welding supply store to see how they would work. The man at the supply store had never seen them, apparently they have a patent...
I finally upgraded to big boy clamps. I won four jorgenson cabinet clamps on ebay ( 2 three foot and 2 four foot) for $80 (locale pickup only). I used them to clamp up a cutting board and I now know what I was missing all these years. They kept the wood perfectly inline. They will save me a lot of clamp up time.-don
