Miter-gauge Fence

01-25-2010 06:48 PM by Dave Owen | 7 comments »

Shortly after completing my shop in 2003, I bought an Incra V27 Miter-gauge. This adjustable Miter-gauge fence I made for it has been one of my most used accessories. I use it mostly on the band saw, but also on the table saw and router table. When I made the fence, I had no thick lumber, so I glued together two pieces of 3/4” oak – then reduced its thickness to about 1-1/8”. The overall length is about 15” land the height is 2-1/4”. The two threaded stu...

Quilting with Wood

01-23-2010 12:15 AM by Dave Owen | 11 comments »

A friend asked if I could help come up with a good way to create a ‘wooden quilt’ wall hanging about two feet square that his wife wanted for her sewing room. The picture above is one of four identical 3-1/2” square x 1/4” deep patterns that are located near the corners of the larger pattern. While different size members are involved in the larger pattern, the jig I came up with can be used to make the entire quilt pattern. The pattern is quite interesting in...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #1: Building the box

01-18-2010 07:05 PM by Ger21 | 3 comments »

My old fence extension table was just a piece of 3/4” MDF with plastic laminate on top. 8+ years with a PC7518 hanging from it put a pretty good sag in it. I reinforced it with some 1×6 poplar, but that was a temporary fix. Since it’s my main router table, I need something extremely flat, so I can do precision work with it. The plan is to build a torsion box table. I’ll be using the existing steel angle at the Unifence and outfeed table to support the front and back. Th...

Handcut Endgrain Inlay

01-18-2010 06:32 AM by SPalm | 22 comments »

This is so stolen from Geoffrey Noden of the AdjustABench. He demo’ed this at the Wood Show and Karson blogged about it. I thought it was pretty cool, and since it is not on the market yet, I thought I would make my own. Not sure what I was doing, I made what looks like a paper cutter. The arm rides between two longer sides to keep it stable and square. It is about two feet long. The cutter bar is hinged with a bolt so that it is level when it is 3/4 of an inch above the base. This let...

Right Angle Clamp Jigs

01-14-2010 06:36 AM by David Craig | 11 comments »

I had to do a glue up of a shoe rack for a friend today so I finally got around to making some right angled clamps. Design mostly inspired by Wood magazine. It is a tip most woodworkers are familiar with but is worth a frequent repeat. There are many ads out there for various types of right angled clamps. Most are made from plastic, some from aluminum and other metals. They are used to assist in keeping any box type project square while fastening. I didn’t feel like buying them so I ...

The Wavy Larry- my jig

01-12-2010 04:12 AM by dustbunny | 18 comments »

I’ve had several LJ’s request pics of the jig I made for the wavy Larry board. I’ve snapped a few pics and sent PM’s with bits and pieces of info individually. Mikethetermite asked for some info a few days ago and I decided to bit the bullet and take the time to do it as a blog. Here goes- On my band saw table I have a sacrificial board- 3/4” plywood squared and framed to the table. The back frame piece unscrews and swings up to put the board on and off the ta...

I just got back from the Baltimore (Timonium) Wood Show, and as I was walking down the last aisle after visiting with LJ member Chuck Bender. I noticed this gentleman sitting on a stool doing some strange things with wood. His name is Geoffrey Noden. Geoffrey in the man that has his name on the Noden AdjustABench It was in his booth that his wife was looking after the Adjust a bench and he was sitting at a stool in front of this tool. What this tool does is cut patterns in wood are then...

Random idea for a shop built rail-guided saw and router

01-06-2010 09:08 AM by Jeison | 2 comments »

Ok bear with me here, I just had this idea and I’m trying to crystalize it while I type (and its too cold in the shop to experiment)...Ok first of all, one of the first things I made for myself when I started woodworking was a set of straightedge guides for my circular saw and router. A wide chunk of 3/4” MDF with a MDF fence glued on top, and trimmed the edges to get a nice straight guide. Well, in hindsight that was a bad idea, for one thing the motor for my skilsaw rides abov...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #4: Arched Candle Holder - gettin' jiggy

12-20-2009 11:12 PM by sras | 5 comments »

Now, it’s time to cut the recesses for the candles. I had originally thought of using a Forstner bit, but it does not leave a smooth flat bottom to the recess. Instead, I used the Forstner bit to cut a pattern for use with my router. I plan to use a pattern bit with a bearing. Looks like it is time to build a jig! Since I am only building one of these, I’ll build a temporary jig. The same elements can be used to create a smaller, but permanent jig. I have two hole sizes so...
