Tablesaw Cross-Cut Sled

08-30-2015 02:43 PM by SirFatty | 5 comments »

A cross-cut sled should be one of the first jigs that a woodworker makes for the tablesaw. It’s more accurate that the typical miter gage and is safer to use. I’ve made a few versions over the years, but have not created one for the the Porter Cable table saw purchased three years ago. There are a couple things that set this version apart from the many variations seen on YouTube and various websites (or even Norm’s). First, the runners for the miter slots are made ...

Hydraulic Crane (Toys and Joys) #7: Hydraulic cylinder

08-29-2015 08:43 PM by Dutchy | 4 comments »

Last week I made two hydraulic cylinders. The cylinders should be able to hold the crane boom in position. Therefor I additional made a “clamping” ring from ash. First I tried to do this with a rubber ring but finally I prefered wood. (I,m making two cranes at the same time, that’s why sometimes you she two cylinders) Below you can see how it was done. Thanks for watching.

Hints and Tips #9: Occasional Pocket Hole Joinery

08-27-2015 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

While I cannot be called a die hard fan of pocket hole joinery, I’ll admit it has some uses. Such a use came about today as I was completing a project (to be posted in a day or two). This method of making pocket holes without an expensive jig I saw in a video by Steve Carmichael. (the link starts the video right at the part I’m talking about). [Above] These are the tools I used to do this procedure. Your choices may vary. I’m using a 3/8 inch spade bit, 1/8 in. twis...

One of a kind, most unique tree on earth, Fish Slab cedar

08-22-2015 11:39 PM by EdgeGrainOnly | 2 comments »

I’ve been living in the natural world of Rivers Inlet, British Columbia my whole life and I’ve never found anything that astounded me more than this. As a beachcomber, when I find a slide it’s a perfect treasure for me to sift through but what I found the day I came across this slide, completely blew my mind. At first sight, the log was a beautiful old growth red cedar – already a gem in itself. But once I started milling, the unique treasure I discovered within ...

Ridgid R4512 router table installation

08-16-2015 06:14 PM by AfraidKnot | 0 comments »

I have been wanting to install my router table on my Ridgid R4512 table saw, and finally came up with an idea to easily mount it and easily keep it level using a hanger system. First I bought 3 sticks of angle aluminum 1/8”x1”x36”, and cut them down to about 31” and drilled holes on each end at 29 and 7/8” on center. Next I used 5/16”x5” tap bolts and put one nut on about 5/8”” from the head and on the other bolt the nut would just a...
