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...

Rough Sawn Walnut #4: Flatten Boards without a Jointer

10-29-2009 04:06 AM by ChunkyC | 3 comments »

The idea came from FWW I got a chance to play around with getting the angles setup for the adjustment wedges tonight. I made a fixture to cut the angle in some scrap. I didn’t pay real close attention to detail on the fixture. I figure it’s a one of a kind item and probably will hit the compost pile in the spring. I don’t particularly like the bungee cord idea so I’m going to use a 1/4-20 bolt to keep the adjuster in place. Here’s the concept:I’ll...

Plate Jointer Jig

10-07-2009 07:07 AM by davidroberts | 12 comments »

I need to cut about 200 or so biscuit slots for a set of bookcases, using my PC plate joiner. First time I have used the joiner and noticed it jumps around so I built a jig to hold the joiner securely in place against a fence. The jig is a modifed, striped down version of one shown in a magazine, I think Better Homes and Garden 101 Best Shop Jigs Ever. The plan called for a plywood base with a 1/8 inch masonite top, T-slots, hold-downs, the works. Mine is just 3/4” MDF thrown togeth...

All in One Jig Part 1 #1: Diamonds and Triangles

10-02-2009 03:28 AM by dustbunny | 43 comments »

After posting the quilted lazy susan project, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/21623, many of you said you would like to see the jig for this project. I set out immediately to upgrade the jig. There were cuts I wanted to incorporate into this jig, and my original was warping and needed repair anyway. So here it is – 24” X 33” I am pretty proud of this jig, not only because I made it, but because the cuts made from this jig are right on the money. The first ...

Shop Designs #1: Hanging Cabinets - Construction

09-23-2009 01:20 AM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well in order to move up to building household furniture I have to show the boss what I can do…So I am starting with some shop cabinets. Nothing fancy, they are made of mdf. I matched the dimensions off one of the cabinets in my kitchen. I am planning on using just ripped 2×4 for the face frame, ill eventually add doors too. Obviously I need a lot of practice…but I realize I need a lot more clamps than what I have. I was able to get a crosscut sled done for t...

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...
