router jigging: edge guide and mortise

08-25-2009 02:26 PM by AaronK | 5 comments »

So the next step in expanding my routing power is to get that thing banging out mortises – i like the idea of loose tenons, so I looked for a jig design with that flexibility built in. The router is by far the most accurate tool in my shop, much more so than my table saw, so that how i’ve been leaning. anyway, I looked at some jigs, most significantly the ones one these pages:http://www.woodsmith.com/issues/147/videos/setting-up-and-using-the-router-jig/http://thecraftsmanspath...

Spiral End Mallet #3: Cutting & Glue-up

08-17-2009 07:24 PM by Kent Shepherd | 7 comments »

After rounding the first side of the pieces, you will need to set up for the other side. Remember, we have 2 jigs, one for each side of the pieces. I told you from the start you would be dealing with only one radius, which you determimed at the beginning of the project. I kept my compass set, and will need it at this time.The position of the work piece is critical now. Take the compass and draw an arc on the jig. Place the pivot point right on the edge of the routed slot in the jig. Note̵...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #5: Update

08-02-2009 11:53 PM by lew | 17 comments »

The other day, I posted another rolling pin. There have been several requests about how to make them. I thought I should update this tutorial with the new and improved trimming jig. Top of jig- hold down clamps, handle, and cutout. The cutout is the main new part to this jig. Previously I was using my tapering jig. The problem I encountered was that if the trimming process was not perfectly flush with the pin blank during the first trimming operation, then the blank would not clamp fla...

Limbert Lamp Table - Stickley #240 #3: Jigs & Dry Fit

08-01-2009 05:38 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

Following TreeFrog as closely as possible, I cut out the blanks for the sides. I cheated a tad and used the wedges from the prototype to establish the tapers on the sides. One one side, I used one wedge, on the second side, I had to use both to compensate for the previous taper. These were cut with the blade at 90 degrees to the table saw to give me a point of reference when I’m cutting the miters. I created the jigs to hold the sides stable while I cut them at a 44 degree mit...

Using a router to make the "Lazy Larry" #1: Making the "Lazy Larry" using a router and router jig.

06-19-2009 02:14 AM by Ampeater | 9 comments »

Degoose showed us how to make the jig that uses a bandsaw to make the spiral sections of his “Lazy Larry”. Well I made the jig, but my old small bandsaw just wasn’t up to the task. I wasn’t about to quit, so I decided to try to make a jig that I could use with my router. It took me awhile to figure it out (using Sketchup), but once I did, it was rather easy to make the jig. Here is how to make the jig. Picture 1. 1. Cut a 3/4” thick piece of MDF ...

Box Joint Jig #1: Cutting the pieces

06-17-2009 05:01 AM by cotfessi | 4 comments »

I’ve been wanting to build a box joint jig for some time now… I saw plans for a jig designed by Lynn Sabin at Leeway Workshop LLC and thought I would give it a try. It uses a carriage that moves along a 3/8”-16 threaded rod. Check out the PDF linked here for more information about how this jig is supposed to work. If you dig around on Leeway’s site a bit, you’ll notice there are two designs – I’m building the second, supposedly more stable versi...

resawing #2: first test of the new jig!

06-16-2009 09:47 PM by Gary Fixler | 42 comments »

I routed in grooves on the fence of my new resawing jig for screwing logs to it, and with that, it was ready for action: Here’s a video – shot on yesterday’s lunch break, edited together last night, with the jig I made on Sunday – of my very first resawing work. The Timberwolf blade works very well, with no resistance and a clean cut. The Craftsman 18” wood/metal bandsaw is a slightly different story. It’s wobbly, which is just a ‘feature&#...

resawing #1: At last, a resawing jig!

06-15-2009 12:31 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I got 2 1” Timberwolf blades from Suffolk Machinery Corp. – 2TPI and 3TI – several months ago, and have been dying to try them out ever since. In that time I had several more projects, mom’s 10-day long yearly visit, my best friends’ wedding, a project I built for that (that I should post one of these days), and so much else. I didn’t want to use them until I had a resawing jig ready to go, so realizing that time was now, I jumped on it yesterday, later in ...

King Excalibur Bookcases

06-12-2009 07:10 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

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 ...
