Dave's Workshop #17: Handy Mini Multi-Miter Sled

07-24-2016 08:55 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

This is one of those jigs I’ve thought about for a while and finally decided to just do it. It’s down and dirty, focused very much on function and not at all on prettiness. Originally I planned to make a dedicated 90 degree miter gauge since the one for my saw is pretty unreliable. It works, but—well, you know. After I got the 90 degree part finished it occurred to me to try some added functionality. On the board behind the fence I added two fences, one at 45 de...

Tilt-Out Wastebasket Cabinet #1: Stock Prep

04-20-2016 05:47 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

I ended up with a lot of footage, so I am going to split the video up as needed to the time manageable. In this video, I start my new project which is a tilt-out wastebasket cabinet. As usual, I start out with rough lumber, so much of this first video is about preparing the stock. Need to Joint a board that is wider than your jointer? I cover that in this video as well. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out! View on YouTube Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thomaslightleFaceb...

Dave's Workshop #16: Small Picture Frame Clamping Jig

03-20-2016 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

[Legebla en Esperanto] [Above] Typical example of Mother Necessity. I needed a way to glue up a small live-edge picture frame plus 5 of it’s sisters sometime down the line. The live edge made it impossible to use a strap clamp or even a rubber band. So after thinking about it, I came up with this ‘simple’ clamping jig. It consists of a pair of cross pieces, the height and width of which match the height and width of the intended frame size. The four cut out corners of...

The Ternowski Knob - a shop-made, "studded" knob

03-11-2016 08:21 AM by DrTebi | 5 comments »

In Need of a KnobI am in the process of designing and building a horizontal mortise machine. For that, I needed a precise circle cut-out. To do that, I needed a circle jig. For that, I needed a knob, one with a threaded stud. I had made one a while ago, and found my template, improved my technique a bit and went to work. The Knob ConceptMost knobs are formed like a star, with five “pointers”. I took Inkscape to the rescue to create a template, here a picture: It’...

Dave's Workshop #15: I improved my tapering jig

03-10-2016 07:51 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Over a year ago I posted this blog entry [link] about the jigs I’ve made for my table saw. Even then I knew the tapering jig pictured above was in need of augmentation. At the time it was adequate, but every time I used it… This week I decided to just take the time and fix the old tapering jig up so that wouldn’t feel so much on the edge when I use it. The main reason though is that I want to use it more for putting a nice clean edge on boards that are not straight. ...

Leather disc for sharpening

02-12-2016 07:45 PM by Sergeich | 6 comments »

I love to sharpen my tools with Japanese water stones. It is like meditation. First you choose appropriate stones for a particular blade. Then soak these stones in water for a while. Then level surfaces of the stones. Then pick up one stone and start to sharpen. Thoroughly, thoughtfuly, unhurriedly. Then you take second stone, then third, then fourth… Using nagura… Listening to shamisen… This way inevitably leads to full and ultimate enlightenment. But, to be honest, sometimes I just want to ...
