Well, Good weather, good time to get finished up on some more. I mated the extension table to the saw top today. I used 3/8×4” lag screws on the mating edge itself. Added 3” deck screws through the angle iron and into the top. Very nice and flat with a good seam. OK, time to get the fence mocked up. I took the T part of the fence and threaded in some nylon set screws, these can be used to square the fence and make sure it is perpendicular also. I can see me ne...
My blog, “Works for me #9: Fence Clamps”, was about a number of uses I’ve discovered for fence clamps. Because of the positive responses to that blog, I decided to describe a couple of additional uses I came up with while building a small, portable table for a Bosch Colt trim router. (a blog on the table itself will be posted within a week or so.).The photo shows a portion of the table and the fence to illustrate both ideas. I decided to make a simple. one-piece fence for...
Yes I am using this more or less as a platform to encourage folks to do their part in taking waste and making it something wonderful. But what are the sources of waste wood that folks are using to keep the stuff out of the landfill? I would like to start, and would greatly appreciate other folks chiming in with their suggestions… #1. Tree Services. While some do sell logs and such to mills, or cut up and sell wood as firewood. Many simply chuck the wood into a chipper the off to t...
INTRODUCTION.. When I started experimenting with using my router for inlays I thought only in the context of straight lines since that was what routers did best. Unfortunately my tastes in designs included Celtic Art especially Knot-work which is mostly curves. These would obviously need some sort of template to guide the router. A cursory inspection of a typical Celtic Knot suggests that they are too complex for a simple template. However a closer examination and study convinced me that s...

When your garden are app. 6×4 meters, a greenhouse can be a challange…So I had put this idea away – untill one day I drove my car, and some one had put on the street some old windows for trash. The windows were put on the back seat, and then in my little garden, so I could think.Some thoughts later (weeks acually), I was ready to sketch, and the idea of a greentower was born. And yes, the idea only…, so now it was time to buy some wood, cut it up in the sizes nee...
Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #2: Well okay, not exactly FINE woodworking... Painted Trellis for Joseph's Coat rose bush.
This is a project in progress actually. A very simple project in progress. The idea is simple. Build a simple 4’x8’ frame from PT stock that I can in turn attach a 4’x8’ trellis to. The entire assembly is to be painted to match the house, and attached to the side yard fence to give something for a newly planted Josephs Coat rose bush to climb. The trellis is painted in the creamy beige trim color of the house, and the frame (pending build) will be painted the burnt ...
How to get a straight edge on a rough cut board that has irregular sides without a jointer. I don’t have the space in my shop for all of the tools to make everyday task easy. My shop is in my garage and just not enough room for a jointer. For myself it works out most of the time because I plane and joint most of the boards for a project in my families shop up in north Carolina that I visit about once a month. But what do you do if you need a board right now? Well there are a few differe...
