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...

Baltimore WoodShow - Vendor with a new item -- Inlays

01-10-2010 01:23 AM by Karson | 19 comments »

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...

First steps

12-19-2009 02:28 PM by David Craig | 4 comments »

I started working with wood a couple years ago. My job gets pretty demanding and I haven’t had much time in the shop since my initial beginnings. My wood hoard mostly consists of boards from things I have taken down and apart since I purchased my home. I have never been much for throwing items away. I bought a planer a couple months ago so will start making some trips to a sawmill in Chesaning for some better wood for projects. In the interim, I am getting back to some woodworking promi...

Kerf Cutter With A Twist

12-08-2009 11:53 AM by Grumpy | 3 comments »

After seeing some excellent ideas on Kerf Cutters I decided to do something a little different. This one uses the measuring tool as part of the jig. This is for the table saw but could be apapted for any machine.As I see it there are two main issues;First: and foremost there is the width of the gap for the jointSecond: there is that problemsome issue of the width of cut that stuffs everything up.I couldn’t see why the measuting device for the assessing the kerf width could not be used.S...

Follow-up on Kehoe Jig

11-16-2009 06:49 AM by Jack Dalton | 13 comments »

A Novice Woodworker Meets the Kehoe Jig Some of you will remember when I asked if anyone could tell me how to make the dovetail splines in the corner of a box I had seen on a Rockler cover. Well, a fellow member of Mason Dixon Woodworkers, Karson told me he had a Kehoe jig to do just that. A number of you were familiar with this jig and wrote about it. Imagine my surprise when Kevin and Terry Jaynes, owners of the Kehoe jig saw my post and offered to GIVE me a complete jig set. I had...

Jigs #1: Sharpening Machine / Jig part 1

11-04-2009 07:58 AM by Alonso | 14 comments »

I’ve been working on this Jig for quite a while now, about 2 months perhaps. I got to say that I’m very pleased with the final results, even thought there still some minor flaws that I need to complete (but I feel that the main part is ready to be shared) This jig was published on Shopnotes #107 just in case anyone would like to try to build this one too. I already tried on my drill press and works like a charm. I hope by this weekend to be able to add some kind of finish, t...
