What Is It #7

06-15-2008 01:04 AM by lew | 5 comments »

Since Odie isn’t posting any more of his stuff, thought I might post another one- Yes, Charlie, it’s a jig. It is NOT a Christmas Tree ornament, a whirly jig for the Jolly Green Giant or scraps sitting on a jointer. Lew

Jig for mating two curved surfaces

06-13-2008 07:53 PM by Skip | 7 comments »

I built this jig, so I could mate two curved surfaces and have a clean glue joint. I used it on a dining table. I will post pictures of the table shortly. —Skip—

Jigs and Fixtures #1: Planer Sled

05-22-2008 02:39 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 21 comments »

As part of my workbench project I needed to mill up a somewhat large piece of lumber for the main chop on my face vise. It was larger than my 6” Jointer could handle. I needed to find an easy way to mill the 2 large faces. I have been wanting to make a Planer Sled for awhile now, so that’s what I did. I based mine on one Keith Rust did for Fine Woodworking “Flatten Boards without a Jointer”. This article is available at finewoodworking.com, but it is only available if you have a ...

Crosscutus Sledi: specious genius

04-24-2008 09:16 AM by BarryW | 9 comments »

Ye of little faith. How is it possible to create a crosscut sled for a Craftman “professional” portable tablesaw?First, I’m not liking the fact Craftman called it a “professional” model since one has so many things to tighten and adjust to make it comfortably accurate. And then the two grooves are on just one side of the blade where on most “professional” models there is a machined groove on either side of the blade. So one has to put two runners f...

Ideas from my shop #3

04-16-2008 09:50 PM by David | 5 comments »

April 16, 2008 I was looking in a magazine at some jigs different guys had built and I marvel at how clean their shops are and how pristine the jigs are: all that new wood and finish. Can’t say mine are anything like that ~ almost always made from scrap and then stuff that isn’t usable because it is damaged, has water spots or stains, etc. But I thought I’d share how I sand small stuff and edges with my belt sander. I made a holder for the sander then clamp it to...

The Flip Side of Woodworking...

04-07-2008 09:25 PM by jcees | 14 comments »

Okay, here’s one of the most useful jigs that I’ve ever made. And if I lost i tomorrow, I could build another in about fifteen minutes. I’m not going to include any dimensions as you should make one to fit your own situation. I made this up obviously with scraps. If I made it out of anything else, it wouldn’t work any better. When I build things there’s always some small parts in need of a little fitting. Viola! I frequently use this #7 r...

Panel Cutting Jig

04-06-2008 08:08 PM by Dadoo | 22 comments »

A couple of whiles ago when I posted my lumber rack, some of the LJ’s inquired about my panel jig. I figured that if I ever needed to replace it, then it would be right to blog it for you. I’m not going to take credit for this as I have seen it somewhere else in one of the many woodworking mags. Just can’t remember which one! This jig is used lying on top of sawhorses or the bench to crosscut and rip large sheets of material. I say “material” because we’...

Large scale moulding on the cheap...

04-04-2008 04:01 PM by Tom Adamski | 13 comments »

In an attempt to cut a large radius nosing for some mantels I’m making, I’m in process of making a router trammel to support the bit in a constant arc. Made from 3/4 ply, my inspiration is based off an old Fine Woodworking article and tablesaw trunions. I still need to mount it to a stable base, fit a router and bit and the fire it up… I’ll post more when I make some sawdust. Tom

Shop Organization #9: Workbench Cabinet (Part 2)

02-25-2008 05:01 PM by gizmodyne | 8 comments »

Drawer Parts Galore I started by squaring some panels to the width of the drawers. To save time I rabbeted the entire panel. Later I would rip them to create the sized drawer fronts. Testing the drawer front fit. You can see the drawer pieces in each cubby awaiting their fronts. The backs of the drawers are held by dadoes 1/2” in from the back of the drawer. I got to spend some quality time with the new crosscut sled.If you squint you can see that there is another 1/2”...
