Pin Router Jig

03-21-2014 08:47 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

A while ago I put up a project where I made some straight wooden track, compatible with Brio and Learning Curve (Thomas) track. Since then, I have kept in the back of my mind how I might easily and cheaply make curved track, switches, and more easily form the male and female ends (without buying expensive, specialized router bits.) I believe I have found the answer. A pin router jig. I first learned about these from a video by Jim Steinbrecher, and later by a much clearer and concise ...

Very Simple Tenon cutting jig

03-19-2014 05:47 PM by stefang | 26 comments »

I’ve been making the saw frame for my Chevalet project. The joinery calls for some tenon like finger joints that are fairly thin. I felt I needed a table saw tenoning jig for this work to get an acceptable result, so I made a simple one that took about and hour working at my usual snail pace. Many of you will think this is woodworking 101 stuff, and you would be right, but I think it worth sharing anyway since it is easy to build out of scrap and requires nothing more than some flat ...

The "I'm Not Worthy" Project Log #8: I Said Hold Down for a Jig.... Not a Jig at a Hoe Down!!!

03-02-2014 01:21 AM by DIYaholic | 25 comments »

With the CC Sled (nearly) completed, in the last blog entry, it was time to put it to use.However, it was not safe for human (or my) use….There wasn’t a “Blade Guard Box”, nor did I have any hold downs.This left fingers in serious peril!!!ALL of that changed today…. I was able to attach the “Blade Guard Box”, for where the blade exits the sled.I feel sooooo much safer now!!! ;^) But that isn’t the reason for this posting….I was also ...

Raised beds for my garden #2: Compound angle bandsaw jig

01-27-2014 11:57 PM by exelectrician | 9 comments »

To cut the compound angles on the cedar 4 by 12’s I made this jig which is more of a rolling trolly.I used bed frame steel angle, and inline skate wheels. Got from Goodwill store at low cost.I cut 10 off, 7 degree wedges off the end of a one foot wide ply off-cut using my sliding miter saw. Using screws to secure the wedges while I played around with the general arrangement, at first I thought I would need two trolleys but then I realized that I could use one trolley if I centered t...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1229: Additional Options for Drilling Thin Stock

01-25-2014 11:13 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

The other day I posted a blog which showed the way I drilled vertically into thin stock. (#1227 Drilling a Vertical Hole Into Thin Stock) I heard many positive responses from people who thought the blog was helpful. However, it was brought to my attention that some may feel that there is a possibility of getting injured by having your fingers too close to the drill bit if it slipped. While this has never happened to me, I do see that it could be a possibility if someone were to push ver...

Drill Press Table Version 2014

01-16-2014 09:04 PM by RCHarvey | 6 comments »

Yea, I know. DP Tables are like cutting boards around here. Been There, Done That. So, I don’t see any Drill Press Tables that are perfect for me. So I’ll build one. Using all of the ideas I’ve seen on this site. My first draft The fence design will come later. I like the following ideas:3 slots. (2 for the fence and hold downs, and one down the middle for a miter gauge or equivalent item or just more holddown for small parts.)1 cross slot. (S...

01-10-2014 05:01 AM by Tim Anderson | 15 comments »

So, I’ve seen tons of videos, read more blog posts than I remember, and tried myself many times to follow all the different methods for sharpening a card scraper I’ve found online. After finally getting the hang of it, I wanted to post my simple no-nonsense method so you can all sharpen card scrapers with ease as well. It’s really quite a bit simpler than people have made it out to be. Required items:1. Unsharpened Card Scraper (If you don’t have this, why read t...

Modified my sliding crosscut sled for the band saw

01-05-2014 09:04 PM by CueballRosendaul | 2 comments »

A while back, I posted my sliding crosscut sled, but then I later built another sled that slid over both sides of the blade. The original sled was just to the left of the blade and left a cutoff piece to dance around and connect with the blade a few times. I found the perfect use for the old one sided sled at the band saw. I had to make a new runner, but the old one popped off easy enough. I cut it down to 12” wide and moved the end clamp closer to the left so it would not be off bal...

Shop Stuff #4: Two shop helpers

12-16-2013 02:35 PM by SPalm | 24 comments »

I have been building a lot of cabinets recently. Not my favorite thing to do. Anyway, I came up with a couple of jig thingies to help. First problem was assembling carcasses all by myself. Pocket screws make it fast, strong, and easy to build a carcass. My problem was getting the first three pieces screwed together. So I made a bunch of little blocks by drilling a hole in them with the pocket screw jig. I then slightly rounded a small piece of 3/8 inch dowel and glued it in the hole. When ta...

Here are some pic sand description of the process I use to make the arch and mouldings for the fruit stand .In this case I used some hardwood flooring with the finish and the backside grooves removed which brings it down to about 9/16 ”. I set up my sled with simple index pin and two index marks for left and right hand cut on the movable panel on the sled. I use a 7 1/4” 40 tooth blade and the arbor tilted to 10 DEG.The blade is set in height to leave about 3/32”o...
