TABLESAW RESAWING JIG ADAPTED FROM CHARLES NEIL’S RESAWING DVD. I am in the process of preparing lumber that I’m getting from nature! Charles Neil did a “Resawing” DVD many years ago, it may be available or may not. Charles demonstrated resawing techniques using a tablesaw and the bandsaw.The jig presented here is made up of available shop materials. I used MDF because I had it as well as three-quarter inch, fir plywood. What you see is the assembled jig. The ji...
MURPHY’S DRILL PRESS TABLE EXTENSION JIG After I finished working on the drill press table and posting it on LJ’s I drilled out 30+ holes accurately for my next project. I am building a chainsaw mill bench/stand. I was pleased that I accurately drilled the holes for the carriage bolts in the supports and cross members. My next task was to pre-drill screw holes in the support bracing that will hold the cross members and supports. I stood there thinking “how am I go...
MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.First picture (jig with spalted Maple) The first picture you see is why I built the jig. If you have been following my journey and saw the other jig that I built for my band saw you know that this is the next step. I am truly in awe of what Mother Nature has given me. Picture 2 ( side view of completed straightedge jig with six-inch hold downs) The next picture is my rough drawing of what a poor man’s jig looks like. I decided to u...
One wild shaving horseA pony for the horse… A good friend of me shoved me this wonderful old stitching pony one day in his house and when he saw my excitement, he decided it was a gift for me.Thought it was interesting for others out there to see how a really old Danish (Scandinavian) version looked like, so here a few pictures. I will use it on my shaving horse, so I can sit outside my work shop in the summer when I do leather work. Here it is put in my workbench. Notice th...
For the top of this art Nouveau style coffee table top which is 60” wide by 80” long, needing to cut a perfect ellipse onto 1” thick 17 ply apple plywood. To make this cutting jig I used 3/4” and 1” thick apple plywood which is very expensive and very durable and hardly ever warps. A. Starting with the dovetail slotted base that screws to the bottom side of the top when cutting. The base is 1” thick 22” square, then route in two 1” wide 5/8...
Below 20 pictures from making a jig. This jig is used on a router table to make notches in tractor wheels, but it’s also possible to use it on circle saw. You can’t see it on the the pictures but this jig glides between two guides. Thanks for watching
I recently built Nick Offerman’s leveling jig from Fine Woodworking (I think it’s from #222). I made it a little stockier than his, longer and wider, to allow leveling slabs up to 8’ x 5’ in size. I’m in the process of building a workbench. The first step was to use the jig to level the bench. I used shims to level an area of garage floor under the support beams. I placed the workbench top (which is made of two layers of 6/4 elm and weighs about 200 pounds) on...
It always was difficult for me to make the holes parallel in the axle. I made a little jig to solve this problem. From plywood I made a 100% right-angle “jig”. On this plywood I put two wheels The screw in the “middle” of the wheel has an offset from 2 mm. By turning the wheel I can clamp the axle. Below you can see how it worked out: Below is the situation on the drill press:
Here is the video where I built a cross cut sled for my table saw. Hope this is helpful and feel free to leave a comment. If you enjoy it or find it useful please like, comment, subscribe, and share. Woodshop Confessions - Cross Cut Sled
I was recently asked about the jigs I use on my Skil table saw, so I thought I’d add this blog entry about the ones I’ve built and use. [Above and below] First up is my crosscut sled. This is the first jig I built for my table saw. It’s down and dirty with no frills added, no hold down t-tracks or anything. If I need a stop block I just clamp it to the back of the jig. The red strip on either side of the blade is a ‘replaceable’ strip I put in after the f...
