Router Table Re-do #4: The Table Top

11-27-2013 01:40 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

Well, the rain today halted construction of my storage shed so I had time in the shop to make the top for the router table. It couldn’t be much simpler: two thicknesses of 1/2” plywood. They were cut larger than the cabinet base so that I have room to clamp around the edge. I rough cut a rectangular hole in one piece. Then I pinned 4 pieces of scrap to the top around the hole to make a pattern, then used a handheld router with a guide bushing finish cut the rectangle. Afte...

Router Table Re-do #1: The Fence

11-03-2013 12:51 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

This was supposed to be part #2 but it’s #1. See #2 for the back story on my router table. The first improvement to my router table was the fence. I have a bunch of mdf that’s been in the shop for years so that’s what I used. I know, not the best material for a project like this. But, my fence was a hodgepodge of ideas and I built it with no plans and just guessed at the measurements. IF it doesn’t hold up at least I’ll have a better idea of what I’...

Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #3: Reconstruction of Missing Parts and Dust Collection

09-29-2013 03:42 AM by FreezFurn | 0 comments »

Next, I had to come up with a new insert for the table. The saw came with a plywood table over the existing cast iron table, so there was no insert. I tried to buy an insert, but they do not seem to be made any longer for this saw. I had a piece of cutting board lying around the shop that I failed in making a TS insert in the past. I got out a circle cutter (the fly style cutter type) and cut out the shape on my drill press fairly easily. I then set up my router to cut off material to pr...

Router Table #2: The Fence

08-16-2013 11:54 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Took advantage of some quiet time after the kiddos went down tonight to make up some time on another secret project. Finishing the router table was key to that project and can also be really useful on the Castle Bookcase so….it got bumped to priority #1. That meant tackling the fence. Luckily, my son’s bedframe broke about four months ago. I repaired the nice wood frame and rail and kept it in the lumber pile until today, knowing from the get go what it was to be used for. I...

Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #1: Buying the Beast

08-06-2013 02:35 AM by FreezFurn | 4 comments »

I found this beastly bandsaw at an estate sale earlier this summer. I have been looking for an older 14 inch in working condition for quite some time for the right price, but Craigslist and other estate sales were not working out within my budget. I want a saw that can resaw and cut out bowl or pen blanks easily. Well this one seemed to fit the bill. I cannot find anything about it on the web, so I am posting this hoping someone can learn from my experience in trying to bring it back to l...

Kid Friendly Project- A Garden Tote

08-02-2013 12:40 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

This project is a great way to get the kids involved. They can do most of the machining, definitely the sanding, and then they can get creative with the painting. This is made with 2 used fence pickets/panels that are 5’ long. They sell new ones for $1.50 at the big box stores. This take only a couple hours to make (including paint drying time). Please like, share, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

Rock-n H Woodshop podcast #13: Jointer Fence Jig

07-15-2013 02:18 PM by Drew - Rock-n H Woodshop | 9 comments »

Have you ever needed to joint on your table saw? I know I have in the past and I had a fence made to do it. However, b/c of my fence upgrade I have not been able to do so, until now. In this episode, I show you how to build your own jointer fence fixture that will allow you to use your saw blade like jointer knives. If you have scraps of ply that you want to make bigger without the hassle of going to the lumber store to get a new sheet, this makes nice work of cleaning up joints on not ju...
