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

361 days ago 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...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #15: Jigs for glue up

724 days ago by sras | 8 comments »

This last weekend was spent setting up the process for assembly and glue up. I had not expected I would spend this much time coming up with a glue up solution. Still, this was a fun puzzle to solve. The first step was to remove the masking tape. It took a while to peel of tape from all 244 tenons! One concern I had with clamping pre-finished parts was damaging the finish. In past times I have had the texture of any padding end up imprinting into the finish. I decided to use a smooth...

Home-Grown Multi-Router #1: In the begin, there was design

1292 days ago by Jim | 9 comments »

I’ve really been wanting a JDS Multi-Router since I used one while taking a class with David Marks (at William Ng’s school in Anaheim). We used the JDS to make loose M&T joints for our coffee table project and it works REALLY nicely. However, the price tag for a home shop is WAY outside my spending limits (starts at $2,600). So, I’ve made the decision to try and build my own version. I’ve looked all over the web and found a few examples of other brave adventure...

Shop in Turmoil

1536 days ago by dustynewt | 6 comments »

I have numerous projects going on. In short, all my horizontal surfaces have gone missing and it is standing room only. Here are some over-alls from the front door. This is the main cause of the melee’. We have decided to toy with silver soldering and jewelry. So, this area of our shrinking shop is being converted to a jeweler’s bench with acetylene torch, flex shaft tool, and all those other cool tools that jewelers use.I will have to find a new home for all that hardwa...

Rough Sawn Walnut #4: Flatten Boards without a Jointer

1717 days ago by ChunkyC | 3 comments »

The idea came from FWW I got a chance to play around with getting the angles setup for the adjustment wedges tonight. I made a fixture to cut the angle in some scrap. I didn’t pay real close attention to detail on the fixture. I figure it’s a one of a kind item and probably will hit the compost pile in the spring. I don’t particularly like the bungee cord idea so I’m going to use a 1/4-20 bolt to keep the adjuster in place. Here’s the concept:I’ll...

Planning and Building a Jig #5: SHOP BUILT VS. STORE BOUGHT

2361 days ago by Peter Oxley | 9 comments »

Some common kinds of jigs are available for sale at woodworking stores and even big-box retailers. Every time I see a jig for sale I think, “I could make that.” I imagine most of us think that! If I see a jig for sale that seems like something I could make, I try to be realistic about whether it is worth the time and effort. I’m a cheapskate, and I almost always build jigs out of scrap, so the expense to build is very low. If you enjoy building jigs, then even if it takes an hour or tw...

Planning and Building a Jig #3: Safety

2398 days ago by Peter Oxley | 1 comment »

Workshop SafetyI can’t overstate the importance of workshop safety. Don’t wear loose clothing, jewelry, or hair. Your tools come with guards for a reason – use them! If you aren’t sure the action you are about to take is safe, then assume it isn’t and figure out a better way to do it. Keep your work area clean, especially underfoot. If you are using a tool – power tool or hand tool – wear eye protection. The best protection against injury is your brain – it m...

Planning and Building a Jig #2: Definitions

2400 days ago by Peter Oxley | 11 comments »

The story is told that after the Great Fire of 1666, the architect Sir Christopher Wren was commissioned to rebuild St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Upon the completion of this huge undertaking, Queen Anne reviewed the work and is said to have declared that it was, “Awful, amusing, and wholly artificial.” Wren was quite pleased to receive such a compliment from the Queen! The English language has a sneaky way of changing over time, and a lot of woodworking definitions have changed or ...

Planning and Building a Jig #1: Introduction

2400 days ago by Peter Oxley | 4 comments »

I grew up on a ranch, a place where you have to be able to do just about everything yourself. Plumber, mechanic, veterinarian, heavy equipment operator, you name it. Having been raised that way, I can’t stand to pay anyone for anything I think I can do myself – my wife would say that is why nothing gets done around here! I make a lot of my own jigs and fixtures. Some of them only get used once, some of them are used so much they almost never get put away. Either way, they are tools ...
