A Router Bit Cabinet with a Secret

09-29-2012 06:25 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

Hey guys and Gals, this weeks project is just a fun simple shop project with a twist. I decided to build a Router bit cabinet for the shop. Well that was the plan, then i started thinking about a way to make it a little more interesting.. Then it hit me, Why not make a Router bit cabinet with a Secret Compartment? I came up with a simple way of locking and unlocking the compartment. So one thing led to another and this is the results. Now the cabinet itself is not made of anything fancy. Sinc...

Evolution of my router planer #6: Version 2.0

07-28-2011 05:31 AM by TZH | 2 comments »

A long time ago, I said I would post a blog entry showing how I plane really big pieces using my router planer. Well, here goes. I started out with some really big cottonwood rounds (that’s my son in the first photo): I cut them into 5” to 6” thick slabs and had to figure out a way to plane them down to 3” to 4” thick to use as table tops for TV stands and coffee tables. That’s when I came up with the Big Boy Router Planer below: I just hap...

New Mobile Work Station #3: Dog Holes and Clamp slots

11-23-2013 11:50 PM by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

With the weather krummy, I stayed indoors and worked on the table top. I laid out the dog holes and clamp slots. Then I drilled the holes with a 7/8 inch Forstner bit. For the clamping slots, I drilled each end with a 1 1/4 inch Forstner bit. Next I drew the lines in between the holes and cut out the slots with a jig saw leaving a little waste inside the line. All that is left is to set up my router with a straight edge and trim the slots to final size with a flush trim bit. Here are a few...

Poorboy Parallel Clamps…questions from a Woodworker

02-24-2011 02:41 AM by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

Perhaps you watched the recent woodworking video How to make poorboy Parallel Clamps. Here are a few questions from one viewer that got me thinking.A quick question …The poorboy parallel clamps obviously works well for panel glue ups, but what are limitations you could see. For instance:........................... Could you use this with deeper pads for a benchtop glue up? or would the clamping force not be up to that task? Would longer pads apply more pressure across wh...

Adirondack Chair & Table #8: The Final Installement: The Adirondack Side-Table

04-01-2010 04:44 AM by jcontract | 2 comments »

I’ve been working for a few weeks now, a few hours a night getting the side-table built. It wasn’t that difficult to do. But it was fun nonetheless. Assembling the base of the table. The legs go on with glue and screws from the back. The most difficult part of the whole assembly was getting the spacing correct. The plans called for a distance of 18 1/4”. So it was a matter of getting the 2 ends of the top to run parallel at 18 1/4” while maintaining th...

Let's Build a Magazine Case

08-29-2010 05:38 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...

My TINY shop renovation #7: Shop built leg vice

02-18-2013 03:14 AM by StayinBroke | 4 comments »

Ok, so last time I had finished my pegboard cabinet and was getting ready to start on my vertical drawers, or sliding book shelves, sliding cabinets, whatever. I haven’t quite gotten started on those yet. I was getting ready to. I got a few of the boards cut and was getting ready to start building them when I realized I didn’t really know how. I started looking around at the different types of wood joints and finally settled a couple I’m going to use for good sturdy sliding ...

Grain Matching Corners on a Box #1: How Many Can You do?

11-12-2009 04:11 AM by scrappy | 11 comments »

I have been doing some thinking about Grain Matching corners. We all see boxes that the wood has been wraped around to match 3 corners, but the 4th is allways off. I think I have come up with a way to match all 4 sides. I will be making a box when I can get back in the shop.(hurt my shoulder and LOML won’t let me play until next week) Will take step by step pics and post in this series for everyone. Keep an eye open for updates. If anyone else has a process for this, feel free ...

Evolution of my router planer #2: Version 1.1

10-20-2010 02:46 AM by TZH | 8 comments »

The next design I came up with for my router planer was based loosely on some of the designs some fellow woodworkers had posted right here on Lumberjocks. The biggest design change was that I eliminated the sled pictured in the first photo in my last blog entry and used angle iron glides instead. Now here was a design I really took a liking to right away. This one allowed me to plane much larger pieces without fear of slipping off the edges of the runners because the router moves withi...
