So I had always planned to build Norm’s Miter Bench and Storage project in my workshop, but then I ran into the Ultimate Tool Stand. The more I started thinking about it, the more I liked the idea of combining the two concepts into one unit. I am currently planning to recess the miter saw area into the Norm’s bench. I will make the saw removable so that it may be replaced with a router table, portable planer, pocket hole jig, mortiser, sanding station, and bench top. Since the...
The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com.........

Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....
I have not really been woodworking all that long. I have actually owned a sawmill longer than I have been making any finished wood projects, long story. I have debated making a proper bench for some time. My old/first bench was a row of kitchen cabinets I took out on a remodel I did as a contractor with a solid plank on top. Everyone has different needs, I tried to design mine to fit the work I do. If I need to I can easily make modifications, as is I am calling it “done for now”....

I decided to make a cooler box for my deck and I designed the whole project using examples from the web below are some of the design aspects that I designed on Sketchup.. Also is a shopping list for all materials and tools that I will be using in its construction: If you decide to make this cooler please take your own cooler measurements… As you know they are all very different, my cooler is a 48 quart cooler.. The cooler roughly cost me $100 for materials but I had to buy the K4 ...
All of the lumber for the legs has been sized…now to glue them up… I cut a small piece of the “frame” lumber, so that it would be easier to glue up the legs with the proper sized notch. The final size of the legs is 24 1/2” long (the glued up short section is 5” shorter than the longer piece; 19 1/2” in this case). Above: The first leg is glued-up. Check the size of your notch with a sample cut from your upper or lower frame lumber. Aft...
I got so tired of fighting with glueing up cutting boards.Is everything lining up ? Is there slipping ? One clamp at a time !!So I spotted these flooring jacks in the HF catalog...and I began to wonder.I bet that I could use these to clamp cutting boards together in hopefully one shot.I haven’t tried it yet, but I will let everyone know if there are problems.I am thinking this is going to work just fine.I may need to add regular clamps at the corners, we’ll see. I did h...
I am posting this as an add-on to my Easy Shop Table. On some of my shop tables I use an MDF top that is integrated (flush) with the top frame. On others (such as my router table) I left the top frame open, and added my router table top. That is the case with the add-on top featured here. I recently acquired some large coated MDF panels. I am not sure what it is coated with, but it is very smooth (different than Melamine). These panels were previously a counter top or shelf assembly...
