Sketchup Resources #1: The Original Incra Jig

02-17-2009 03:51 AM by PurpLev | 6 comments »

while working and designing my router table I noticed that there are no Incra Models on Sketchup 3D Warehouse at all. I do not have any of the LS positioner systems, and would have liked to have a 3D model version to incorporate into my design and see how it would work with different sizes table tops… I do however have the Original Incra Jig, and figured I could model it out, and put it on 3D Warehouse for anyone that might be interested in it, and could use it in their designs. so w...

Hand Tools Cabinet #2: Chisels on the Left, Markings on the right

02-07-2009 06:05 AM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Let me start by saying that the first part of this blog although posted earlier today, was actually made about a year ago, I just posted it today as a preceding part to the one you’re reading now… tried not to double post and ‘push’ other’s from the blog front page, so I waited half a day between 2 posts, although both were made ready at the same time. to continue the story were I left off, what I found most difficult with setting up the box was the box joints...

My version of GaryK's jointing jig

02-01-2009 04:27 AM by sIKE | 10 comments »

I have some 10” wide cherry that I need to make four square and do not want to rip down to six inches so I finally built GaryKs jig to do this for me. However I was trying to re-utilize some casters that I had laying around and they didn’t work :( seems that they need to be fixed for this to work well. So this is it sans the casters which are on order from Surplus Center. I am hope to draw this up in SketchUp when everything is said and done.

Crosscut Sled

01-22-2009 08:13 AM by David | 19 comments »

This video features a new crosscut sled built for my shop. Inspiration for this sled came form books in my library and countless Internet searches. This is a simple project for the shop that will increase safety, speed and accuracy of crosscuts on the table saw. Construction is simple with a MDF base, maple fences, Incra Miter Bars and T-Track. The plan file is available for download. Hopefully this will inspire a sled for your shop! David STOP BLOCK DETAIL FRONT FENCE DETAIL

Let me see your Mag Switch Jigs

01-19-2009 06:23 PM by spaids | 5 comments »

The uses for these things seems endless. I WILL be picking some up within the next few weeks. Who wants to share their innovative mag Switch jigs with us? PS has anyone figured out a way to cut the perfect hole for these? I know a forstner bit seems like the way to go but the Mag switch has that one flat side which is an underutilized feature. I could cut the hole for this thing with a flat side the jigs from it would be that much more stable.

Useful jigs for your shop #1: A cradle for changing router bits on a Triton router

12-25-2008 11:52 PM by Bob #2 | 18 comments »

I got tired of chasing my big router around the bench when changing bits or setting depth of cut so today I grabbed a piece of 1×4” and a chunk of 1/4” mdf and made a cradle.I traced around the router and cut the MDF out in a rough pattern on the bandsaw then tuned it a bit with the spindle sander.From wood stuff 2009Next I put a brace inside to support the router top and covered it with a bit of foam to prevent scratching. Heres the finished cradle held on the bench with ...

Circle Cutting Jig

12-05-2008 06:17 AM by Grumpy | 11 comments »

I needed a jig to make a lazy susan, my blog is at;http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Grumpy/blog/6612This jig was not my design but came from an article in a magazine. It is fairly simple & I thought it might be worth sharing.There are 3 wooden components & a handful of metal bits. A 1/4”X6” disc can be stuck to the item you want to shape or a 1/4 pin can be screwed into a hole in the centre of the item as in the above photo.A 4 1/2”X 1/2” piece of desired length...

Lazy Susan

12-05-2008 05:01 AM by Grumpy | 15 comments »

This project had more hickups than an old drunk in the park but thanks to three of my buddies who gave some excellent advice I was able to straighten (I do mean straighten) things out. Our Kitchen table is an 8 seater. Reaching items in the middle was a bit of a nuisance unless you stood up. A lazy Susan was the answer, but what size?.I drew the whole thing on sketchup but that did not give a satisfactory idea of proportion. I then cut two 8mm (5/16”) plywood templates, a 500mm & 60...

Shop Organization #3: Hanging saw holder

11-09-2008 09:15 AM by SteveKorz | 10 comments »

I’ve been working on this wall slat system for a couple days. I only had a couple hours to mess with it today. One of the things that I made was a cam action hanging saw holder. I got tired of storing my saws flat against the wall on a nail. It’s inconvenient if you store more than one per nail, then you end up with saws on the bench that you aren’t using (getting dull every time something bumps into them). I made this hanger to solve that problem in my shop. I know,...

Tool thoughts #13: Wolvie Clone in progress

11-02-2008 03:16 AM by NedB | 5 comments »

With my shop mostly completed, I have turned towards getting my tools in order, including setting my grinder for sharpening my turning tools. I found this plan online and decided that it would be easy enough to build instead of shelling out $90 for the wolverine jig itself. I still have to mount the grinder to the platform at the proper height, as well as recut the v-block. The one there isn’t cut evenly, so I’m going to cut another piece on the tablesaw instead of the bands...
