This Jig's for you, Jim*

04-14-2009 04:47 AM by Chris | 5 comments »

I was having a conversation with a firend at work that lurks on this site (I’ll call him Jim to protect his/her anonymity) about a right angle push block for my router table. For some reason (most likely my lack of eloquence) Jim could not figure out just what the heck I was talking about. So … I’m posting a couple of pictures of said jig. It was made from some scrap MDF in about 10 minutes , and it’s dimensions came largely from the size of the scraps. I did round ove...

The Super Sled #3: Mitering Fence

04-06-2009 02:12 AM by John Nixon | 7 comments »

I just completed the latest video in the Super Sled series – the Miter Fence. Cut accurate and reproducible miters with this shop made miter fence designed for use with the Super Sled. Using a stop block for repeatable cuts allows you to get the exact same size pieces each and every time you miter. This versatile setup can cut a wide range of angles safely and accurately on the table saw. The Miter Fence video for the Super Sled series shows the construction of the fence and two dif...

Getting back to the basics. Working with hand tools #2: Card scraper holder

03-25-2009 02:42 AM by Julian | 9 comments »

Here’s a quick and dirty card scraper holder I built out of maple. I burnt the hell out of my thumbs a few weeks ago after a long session with the scraper, so I felt the need to make one of these. I used a small diameter knob I had lying around to adjust the curve of the scraper. This scraper holder works great. I just wish I would have built ti BEFORE I got the giant blisters on my thumbs!

The Non-Electric Chair #13: Making the Chair (Front Frame)

03-03-2009 12:42 PM by lethentymill | 4 comments »

I wish I knew more about mushrooms and toadstools; Inkcaps appear from time to time, and rubbery, orange or brown alien things are there in the short grass some mornings and gone a few days later. Wrens are bobbing about outside the window today looking for insects in the bushes, maybe it’s the “flying school” wrens – they’ll be around all winter as they don’t migrate, and in the spring (RSPB website) the males will build several nests and the female will choose the nest she likes best. “W...

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.
