Trying to sharpen my router plane blades by hand was taking way too long and kind of frustrating. So I came up with a jig to hold the blades on my Worksharp. Trying to hold them free hand wasn’t working so well, they would catch and I would end up with multiple facets and an edge that wasn’t straight. So I came up with a simple jig to hold the blades at the proper angle (about 35 degrees). Its simply a small block of wood with a v-groove down the middle to hold the blade, and is g...
Here are some pics of the skew sharpening jig that I made for my WS3000 to sharpen the blade for my Stanley #289 plane. The block is approximately 3” x 2” x 10”. The bed angle is 30 degrees and the skew angle is 22 degrees. The block is clamped to the work surface and the blade is placed in the jig and then is slid down to the grinding wheel. I got this idea from Chris Schwarzs blog at Popular Woodworking on how to correct the skew for a plane blade or chisel. ...

I built a single blade box joint jig as designed by Mario Capellano. Here’s a build video about the clamping fence I made for it. Watch video.
Here’s a video about the circle cutting attachment I use on my plunge router. Micro adjustments are easy. Watch video.
I got a new lathe in June 2015, but couldn’t use it until I was able to purchase some tools in October 2015. I decided to start learning woodturning by making pens.

You can buy a vise for your drill press made specifically for pen blanks for $50, but I had already spent enough on the tools and couldn’t afford one. I...
I made this jig to adjust the blade of my table saw. After doing some repairs it was necessary for me to align the blade to the miter slot. I made a video of how to make and use the jig. Here is the link to that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-NaDpvyiDg Hope you enjoy it.
I use a simple method to make jigs that fit over the fence on my table saw. In this video I show that method and also some uses for the jig. The video can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq4RY_xkmEA . I hope you find the information useful.
I saw this as I was trying to understand routers and the myriad bits and bobs that go along with them. I thought it a clever idea and wanted to keep track of it, and I reckoned some of you might think so too, so here it is.
