A self centering dowel jig can produce accurate and repeatable joints. Here are a few tips and tricks for getting the most from your jig. https://youtu.be/LjNA2KvqlZE
[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] [Above] After the movable stop is on the bar, insert a piece of 1/4 in. dowel into the hole at the end of the bar. This keeps the head from sliding off. The dowel can be glued in, but if it is snug, you may want to leave it be. If left removable, the possibility is open to join two clamps together to make a longer one. [Above] Take the 1 in. x1 in. x 4 in. piece of wood and drill a 3/8 in. hole down the center about 3 in. deep. Using epoxy...
Hi guys! So, I built this corner radius revolving template jig from plexiglass and plywood (picture included). It is used with a flush-trim bit on a router table to make identical corner curves.

Hello colleagues, So, I used my pusher for some time and it worked fine in 95% of the cases and then I decided to match all of the features of the Grr-ripper Deluxe that sells for about $120…:) In this video I’m adding: a 1/8” leg from plexiglass, stabilizing plate/balance support, routing spacer and a “heel” for resawing and veneer cuts to match all Grr-ripper Deluxe model’s capabilities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7Ow9GhgB_o

The shop is still mostly packed, but I’m finally starting to get WSM headquarters back up and running! So no, this is not a post that some would consider to have much to do with woodworking, but since I’m mainly a turner, my chainsaw is very much part of my process. Hopefully there’s something here that some of y’all will fin...
I was tired of my old bar style rack. It would always come loose from the wall, always had the towels falling off, and it just didn’t look nice. I took it to the next level and create a new towel rack. YouTube Link-Remember to Subscribe!

View on YouTube Hello everyone! As I have declared myself the designated woodworker in my household, I am getting all sorts of home improvement jobs. Today, my parents asked me to refinish the tops of their bedside dressers. I thought I would talk through what I do to refinish things, and maybe you guys could learn something and/or offer some tips! While the main body of the dressers is generally alright, the top surfaces are in rough shape. Glasses of water and cups of coffee...
