Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #6: Almost ready to mount

04-10-2010 03:41 PM by Ger21 | 5 comments »

I lost count, but I think I have now applied about 12 coats of polyurethane. Nearly 1/2 gallon. After about 7 coats, the endgrain finally stopped soaking it in. So at that point, I basically had a 3/32” thick “plastic” top, as hard as a butcher block. Which is exactly what I wanted. I tried to put the poly on as thick as possible, sanding down all the high spots between coats. After the 7 coats, I realized it wasn’t as flat as I’d like, as I was sanding th...

Leigh isolock joints out of a HF dovetail jig.

03-21-2010 03:13 AM by jm82435 | 7 comments »

It is spring cleaning time at my shop. So I was taking some pictures of stuff I do not use to list on CL for sale. I took a picture of an old dovetail jig I have never been too fond of, when I had an idea... A while back I salvaged some plastic strips that had been used as packing material for something at work. It suddenly struck me that it was about the same size and type as the plastic on the jig. I have another custom made jig I use, but it is not handy to clamp it to the workpiece. So,...

A Poor Man's Router Fence Positioning Jig

02-25-2010 11:13 PM by stefang | 17 comments »

Quite a few years ago I made a fence positioning jig from a design by Nick Engler. It was nice and worked fine, but when I built a new router table I also built a split fence so I would have the option of moving the outfeed side of the fence outwards to fully support the workpiece through the entire cut when jointing. I just occurred to me that I could use the positioning jig together with my split fence as shown below. One full turn of the handle on the positioner and the fence moves 1mm ...

Jigs... #1: Log Sled for Bandsaw

02-10-2010 06:24 AM by Hoakie | 8 comments »

One of the reasons I got my Rikon 14” Deluxe was to mill small logs into lumber and bowl blanks. In order to do this safely it is important to keep the log steady while pusing it past the blade. Here is my version of a log sled that I built for it 1) The base is 3/4” BB Ply. On the top I have placed two Incra tracks to help adjust the depth of cut. 2) I have added a runner to the bottom to ride in the miter slot on the BS. (it also fits in the slot in my router table ...

Router Mortising Jig

02-08-2010 08:16 AM by HungryTermite | 11 comments »

I saw a post on here at one point, and also in an old issue of shopnotes about a mortising jig for my plunge router that seemed quick and easy. Since I need to cut a bunch of mortises for the blanket chest I am making I figured I would make one. I made some slight changes to it by using acrylic instead of hardboard and I used fender washers under the wing nuts. The runners were made from scrap maple which was sanded smooth and coated with a few coats of wipe on poly. It seems to sit on ...

Extremely Average #30: Henry Wood Detective Agency: Monday Morning

02-01-2010 05:50 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Sunday had been relaxing. Henry spent the day finishing his dado jig for his router. He was starting to get comfortable using the router and was able to create a straight edge, then from that, square up the jig. He could hardly believe it when he put the square on each corner and they were all at 90 degrees. What a rush. After he finished the jig and photographed it for posterity he relaxed a bit and bought a new case journal. He jotted down a few of his thoughts. Jan 2, 1955...
