Easy Box Joints - How To

02-12-2018 03:12 PM by George_SA | 1 comment »

While thinking about making a joint that is similar to making Box Joints, I came up with the idea to use my 5 Minute Kerf maker and Small Sled to make Box Joints. It works like thisYou use a stop block and spacers and the Kerf Maker on the sled to cut the Box Joint Fingers. The 1st step is to align everything for the 1st cut. I switched the spacers and the Kerf Maker around to save my Kerf Maker from getting chewed up by my saw blade. In a perfect world that shouldn’t happen, b...

Table Saw Sled with small parts hold-down

01-26-2018 02:13 PM by CampD | 3 comments »

I’ve finally, I say finally utilized my YouTube channel. I’ve been taking Vid’s and pic’s of my projects for years but never really took the time to learn to edit and produce a worthy video. I tried to get my Electrical Engineer millennial Son whose extremely versed in this process to help the old man out, but, some of you may know how this goes. You see, I’d much rather be in the shop than take the time to learn a new program or even doing office work (like typi...

Shop Projects #2: Table Saw Miter Sled

10-20-2017 05:42 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

After having made my 1st table saw sled, I knew I had to have a miter sled as well. A few weeks ago I really found myself at a loss when I needed to make some accurate 45-degree angles for the clock I was making for my wife. I had previously watched a number of videos on this subject and found a method that looked like it would suit my needs and available materials. Here is a pretty good picture of the sled I cannot tell you just how happy I am with this sled! if you take a few ...

Toy Construction #154: New Wheel Making Jig #1

10-07-2017 05:04 AM by htl | 13 comments »

My old wheel making jig was way way wore out so when we moved it hit the trash can. :-[ So time to make a new one with thoughts of being more accurate and safer to use.Want it to work with my hands farther from the blade and need to come up with a way to get better holes drilled for the dial indicator [if that the right word] So with that being said I needed to find a guide to drill 36 holes at just the right spacing. I started by using a 36 tooth 7 1/2” saw blade to force the ...

A shop made jig for making face frames with the JessEm 08350 doweling jig

05-25-2017 10:58 PM by Rich | 4 comments »

NOTE: The small face frame shown here is what I keep near the jig for reference. It has notes, etc, written on it and is not intended to represent a finished face frame that would be used on a cabinet. I was just going to post a few pictures of the jig with the JessEm mounted in it, but since it’s not really intuitive how it’s used, I thought a story through pictures would help. This blog entry will basically be photos with captions that briefly describe what’s being s...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #18: Violin bridge jigs

02-07-2017 08:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

It stands to reason that if I need bridge jigs for a cello, [link 1] [link 2] I’ll need bridge jigs for a violin as well. I made these out of some scrap wood. The bridge fitting jig (on the right above) was made from oak. The string jack/lifter is from poplar. I made the blank for it at the time I made the blank for the cello string lifter. Brass hardware gives a tiny touch of class to jigs which are very utilitarian. I finished the string lifter with golden oak stain and th...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #17: String jack or lifter for cello

01-23-2017 09:36 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

This is a device that lifts the strings off of the bridge of a musical instrument so that the bridge can be removed during the fitting/adjustment process. I think i first saw one of these in a video on YouTube. After looking it up, I decided it was definitely something I could make. It’s basically a thick bridge, this one is for a 3/4 cello, which has a top piece which lifts with the assistance of a screw. The top piece runs on guides. The commercial products run in slides on the si...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #11: Get a grip on your bow!

01-05-2017 08:05 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

See more photos on my project page [link] A bow vise is used to hold a violin bow while replacing the horse hair that vibrates the strings. I started by looking up such a thing and finding photos of (mostly) the commercially available models. Then I printed out a few screen shots for the details. I didn’t absolutely duplicate the commercial model, but I got something that will work. The wood is oak throughout. A few bibs and bobs of the hardware will be replaced with brass once I ge...

12-26-2016 02:20 AM by CrazyRussianWoodShop | 1 comment »

Hi Guys, Today I wanted to present you with the simplified version of a Gripper I made earlier I used plexiglass for the frame because it is strong, light and less bulky than plywood The rest of the Gripper is made of Baltic birch plywood I used the sticky anti-skid strips for the legs (homedepot)And made a simple eccentric wheel to act as a balancing plate on the original grr-ripper You can see the details and dimensions in this 3.5 min video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D...
