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...

CHARLES NEIL BANDSAW RESAWING JIG II FOR RESAWING OR SLICING VENEER ON THE SMALL BANDSAW Yep, fellow lumberjock’s another jig for resawing in a small shop from Charles Neil’s video on resawing, which can be found now on his website if you want to see this in action. 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...

TABLESAW RESAWING JIG ADAPTED FROM CHARLES NEIL’S RESAWING DVD. I am in the process of preparing lumber that I’m getting from nature! Charles Neil did a “Resawing” DVD many years ago, it may be available or may not. Charles demonstrated resawing techniques using a tablesaw and the bandsaw.The jig presented here is made up of available shop materials. I used MDF because I had it as well as three-quarter inch, fir plywood. What you see is the assembled jig. The ji...

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...

MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.First picture (jig with spalted Maple) The first picture you see is why I built the jig. If you have been following my journey and saw the other jig that I built for my band saw you know that this is the next step. I am truly in awe of what Mother Nature has given me. Picture 2 ( side view of completed straightedge jig with six-inch hold downs) The next picture is my rough drawing of what a poor man’s jig looks like. I decided to u...

One wild shaving horseA pony for the horse… A good friend of me shoved me this wonderful old stitching pony one day in his house and when he saw my excitement, he decided it was a gift for me.Thought it was interesting for others out there to see how a really old Danish (Scandinavian) version looked like, so here a few pictures. I will use it on my shaving horse, so I can sit outside my work shop in the summer when I do leather work. Here it is put in my workbench. Notice th...

Leveling My Workbench Top

03-15-2015 02:54 AM by Jarred | 0 comments »

I recently built Nick Offerman’s leveling jig from Fine Woodworking (I think it’s from #222). I made it a little stockier than his, longer and wider, to allow leveling slabs up to 8’ x 5’ in size. I’m in the process of building a workbench. The first step was to use the jig to level the bench. I used shims to level an area of garage floor under the support beams. I placed the workbench top (which is made of two layers of 6/4 elm and weighs about 200 pounds) on...
