Let's Build a Drill Press Table

1492 days ago by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

The drill press is a terrific tool in the woodworking shop especially when it has a drill press table that conveniently clamps the work, provides a fence for repeatable and accurate cuts, and also offers a safer working environment. The drill press was originally set up for metal working and most tables that come with the drill press are small metal tables. As a result, the metal tables can be rather awkward for use in the woodworking shop. A better solution for the woodworker is to buy...

A Woodworking Drill Press Table

1511 days ago by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The drill press is one of the great woodworking tools for a woodworker to have in the woodworking shop. However, the small metal table that often comes with this tool is rather limiting for woodworking. So, the answer to this limitation is to either buy a drill press table or build a shop-made drill press table. If you choose to purchase the accessory you could have it that very day if you have a woodworking store like Woodcraft or Rockler close by. Then again you could find a drill press tab...

1084 days ago by Brit | 39 comments »

I thought I’d mix it up a bit in this part of the blog and record a video where I: Discuss what to look for when you pick up a secondhand brace and consider buying it.

Answer lysdexic’s question as to why the Yankee 2100 represents the pinnacle of brace development. YouTube only allows uploads up to 15 minutes in length (...

Circle Drilling Jig

2616 days ago by Karson | 4 comments »

Circle Drilling Jig I did not design this jig. I didn’t make this jig. But I’ve been using it for the last couple of weeks, and I thought that I’d post it as an ingenious drilling jig. It was designed and made by John Nole of our Mason Dixon Woodworkers Club. He passed away about a month ago, so in memoriam I wanted to post this jig that he designed. John was a machinist by trade and owned his own machine shop. So he was always looking for ways to make repetitive tasks easier and fas...

Shop Tips & Tricks #11: MORE than you ever wanted to know about HOLES!

509 days ago by GnarlyErik | 9 comments »

Don’t get too excited – this isn’t an article on porn or sex, but only about making holes in wood! There are times when you need a hole in wood which becomes a challenge, even with the right sort and size bit. Here’s how to deal with some of the more common challenges: 1. Drilling long holes accurately:  A. By far the easiest way is by making a shallow saw kerf in the “Faying Surface”①. These are then joined together by glueing or other means, with the kerfs mirr...

CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

888 days ago by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1227: Drilling a Vertical Hole into Thin Stock

221 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Oh, my goodness! The last several days have been FULL! The past several days I have put in at least 14-16 hours per day working on my new patterns and packets. Sometime around 9pm last night, I finally finished creating the two packets for the ballerina projects (one packet for painting them and the other for the woodworkers to scroll them out). As much work as it was, it was still enjoyable and I am pleased with the final results. I am eager to get them posted on the site and see how others...
