I have the bookcase built for the murphy bed. They went together fairly quickly. I made a jig that acts as a square for the shelves. It also keeps the shelves from moving when the pocket screws at put in. Here is a picture of the jig. I have it notched out for an overhang I usually put on the top. I usually attach all shelves on one side and then flip it over and repeat. With the jig it also keeps glue from getting everywhere when I flip it. Here is the assemble footage Here are ...
Sometimes, the means to produce a part of a project are nearly as interesting as the project itself! I’m building another box (Shock!! Surprise!!), similar to the “Quiet Little Oak Box” only larger. I again needed to cut some skewed tenons.I didn’t want to do it the same way as last time. Not that it didn’t work, but I wanted more control and accuracy. Also, this time was not a change of mind, where I could use the first, straight tenons as a handy guide for sawi...
So with the basic bench built it,s time to increase its ability to do some serious work. Without a vise other ways have to be found to hold stock and as Adam Cerubini pointed out it,s the ability to securely hold stock that makes hand tool work easier,safer and all the more enjoyable and it frees you up to concentrate on holding the tool with a more effective grip which in turn makes your work more accurate. All these jigs have been written about and described in books and magazines going b...
I found this and i try make it. The results soon. Because i dont have a cilindrical steel, i use this rod screw. and i modify a little the design.De Workbench
This is a dovetail jig I’m working on from some plans of an old Shop Notes Magazine. The original plans called for Cherry but I used White Oak. I also extended the original jig an extra foot so it would be able to cut bigger pieces. It’s still only 75% done, I still have to make the template fingers, but I’m waiting on my new locking router plate and bushings before I cut the clearances and angles of the fingers.
I have been working on the overall project for the last several weeks. The panels and shelves glue ups are done and the initial sanding is done. Next up on the list was to turn the shelves from squares to quarter rounds. So it was time to stop and start making the jigs needed for the project. The Rounding Jig and The Quarter Rounding Sled, the Sliding Dovetail Socket jig, and the router fence for the Pins. The Rounding Jig is based upon Norms, however my little 9” BS was not up to th...
I posted a new project the other day and several Jocks made good comments and suggestions!I took their comments and suggestions and they are as follows.Click to enlarge. Before After After
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...
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...
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!
