I saw this as I was trying to understand routers and the myriad bits and bobs that go along with them. I thought it a clever idea and wanted to keep track of it, and I reckoned some of you might think so too, so here it is. A Jig for Precision Trimming by Nick EnglerFrom The Ultimate Router Guide: Jigs, Joinery, Projects & More from Popular Woodworking, David Thiel (ed.)

EZ Mitre #2: Board holder for router mitring

09-12-2015 04:17 PM by BritBoxmaker | 2 comments »

I thought it might be a good idea to post the board holder that I use for safe and sure router easy mitring. This holder keeps your hands clear of the cutting operation (which should satisfy the safety minded amongst us) and applies uniform pressure to the cut over the width of the board. It’s made from MDF and three wood screws. Top view Bottom view (flipped horizontally The fences slide into the main board running in a dovetailed 3 mm routed groove in the main boa...

I hate my unifence. I added the Uni-T-Fence from ttrackusa and it’s a decent upgrade. But the back side is still messy, not at all like the Biesemeyer. Anyone using the Unifence knows what I mean. Tripped over this from Been bouncing this same design between my ears for months but never executed. mistuhd: You get the glory. Now that you’ve done all the heavy lifting, I can build mine, ...

Hints and Tips #10: Template Sawing on the Table Saw

09-03-2015 05:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

If you remember my Tip #7, I showed how I jointed one edge of a board by taping a straight edge to a board and running it along the fence of a table saw. Well, sometimes I think I’m just stupid! There’s an easier way to do this and I already had the jig for it made. My wife asked me for a piece of wood to shore up one side of an electronic keyboard at her school. I had a piece in mind, but wanted to square it up and paint it black. After I did all of this, using the method des...

Several years ago Charles made a DVD on resawing, which I have. I think I asked him to make it, maybe not. But all the credit goes Charles.I’m doing a small blog here on this which I posted as a project. I...

Charles demonstrated resawing techniques using a tablesaw and the bandsaw.The jig presented here is made up of available shop materials.

MURPHY’S DRILL PRESS TABLE EXTENSION JIG After I finished working on the drill press table and posting it on LJ’s I drilled out 30+ holes accurately for my next project. I am building a chainsaw mill bench/stand. I was pleased that I accurately drilled the holes for the carriage bolts in the supports and cross members. My next task was to pre-drill screw holes in the support bracing that will hold the cross members and supports. I stood there thinking “how am I go...
