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. In order to make pens, you have to drill a hole in a blank and glue an insert into the hole. It’s favorable to drill the hole square from one end to the other. 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. A Jig for Precision Trimming by Nick EnglerFrom The Ultimate Router Guide: Jigs, Joinery, Projects & More from Popular Woodworking, David Thiel (ed.) http://bookzz.org/md5/cac43aff6807bd5e1f0b967890121057 Once upon a time I had the brilliant idea to use a strip...
I thought it might be a good idea to post the board holder that I use for safe and sure router easy mitring. This holder keeps your hands clear of the cutting operation (which should satisfy the safety minded amongst us) and applies uniform pressure to the cut over the width of the board. It’s made from MDF and three wood screws. Top view Bottom view (flipped horizontally The fences slide into the main board running in a dovetailed 3 mm routed groove in the main boa...
I hate my unifence. I added the Uni-T-Fence from ttrackusa and it’s a decent upgrade. But the back side is still messy, not at all like the Biesemeyer. Anyone using the Unifence knows what I mean. Tripped over this from http://lumberjocks.com/mistuhd http://widgets.lumberjocks.com/project/109032.jpg Been bouncing this same design between my ears for months but never executed. mistuhd: You get the glory. Now that you’ve done all the heavy lifting, I can build mine, ...
If you remember my Tip #7, I showed how I jointed one edge of a board by taping a straight edge to a board and running it along the fence of a table saw. Well, sometimes I think I’m just stupid! There’s an easier way to do this and I already had the jig for it made. My wife asked me for a piece of wood to shore up one side of an electronic keyboard at her school. I had a piece in mind, but wanted to square it up and paint it black. After I did all of this, using the method des...
