Disposable KerfMaker

1163 days ago by rance | 31 comments »

Well, yes, the Kerf Maker is a very clever jig. I have a different take on its manufacture. I see a reason to have several, NO, Wait… Why not make them DISPOSABLE? :) I had a need to use one today so why not make one. Here it is:  I used a stick of about 1/2” square pine. Yeah, Pine(or is that Poplar?). And some double sided tape. Cut the stick in half. (I’m kinda protective of my tape. Can ya tell?)  Then stick both halves together with the tape. &n...

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

1783 days ago by dustbunny | 42 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 ...

Jigs and Fixtures #1: Planer Sled

2282 days ago by Mike Lingenfelter | 18 comments »

As part of my workbench project I needed to mill up a somewhat large piece of lumber for the main chop on my face vise. It was larger than my 6” Jointer could handle. I needed to find an easy way to mill the 2 large faces. I have been wanting to make a Planer Sled for awhile now, so that’s what I did. I based mine on one Keith Rust did for Fine Woodworking “Flatten Boards without a Jointer”. This article is available at finewoodworking.com, but it is only available if you have a ...

Making a Small Wooden Box #1: Getting Started

2566 days ago by Don | 23 comments »

I blogged a couple of weeks ago about what I should charge for a small box I was asked to make. I thought that those of you who haven’t delved into the wonderful world of box making might like to journey along with me as I make this commissioned box. I was given the outside dimension for the box, as the owner intends to place it in a chest of drawers, so it must fit the size constraints of the drawer. The box will be 95mm high x 360mm wide x 240mm deep (approximately 3.75” x 14...

No Quarter #1: Shell box - Intro and pattern

1125 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

Hello here this is my second attempt to blog shell boxes. The last one ended up in the wall art ‘Inverted World’. Well this one is a little less spectacular but is based along the same theme of curves. This time a curved pattern but it will have stringing introduced between the colour changes as will become apparent as the blog progresses. The main woods are American Black Walnut and Sycamore with Yew stringing. I will be book-matching woods where necessary. First step i...

Panel Cutting Jig

2327 days ago by Dadoo | 22 comments »

A couple of whiles ago when I posted my lumber rack, some of the LJ’s inquired about my panel jig. I figured that if I ever needed to replace it, then it would be right to blog it for you. I’m not going to take credit for this as I have seen it somewhere else in one of the many woodworking mags. Just can’t remember which one! This jig is used lying on top of sawhorses or the bench to crosscut and rip large sheets of material. I say “material” because we’...

The Wavy Larry- my jig

1681 days ago by dustbunny | 18 comments »

I’ve had several LJ’s request pics of the jig I made for the wavy Larry board. I’ve snapped a few pics and sent PM’s with bits and pieces of info individually. Mikethetermite asked for some info a few days ago and I decided to bit the bullet and take the time to do it as a blog. Here goes- On my band saw table I have a sacrificial board- 3/4” plywood squared and framed to the table. The back frame piece unscrews and swings up to put the board on and off the ta...

2390 days ago by Blake | 37 comments »

Grab some popcorn… I made a movie!(Make sure the volume is up… it might be a little quiet) Story:I have been working really hard to tune up my bandsaw lately. I really wanted one of these:...for tensioning and detensioning the blade. But I am at the end of my budget and can’t spend another $150. I had seen pictures of a homemade version in a magazine and decided to make my own. I posted this to try to get ideas. Anyway, this is what I came up with and it works gre...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #8: Cutting the Corner 45 Degree Angles

527 days ago by Boxguy | 17 comments »

A Quick, Accurate Way To 45 Your Corners If you build boxes at all, eventually you tire of cranking your blade from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and back…I did. So I built this simple jig, and now I can cut all 8 ends of a box accurately in about 5 minutes, AND STILL LEAVE MY TABLE SAW SET AT 90 DEGREES. Assumption: I am assuming that you have already laid out the board for your sides and have cut all four sides of your box to length. Short side, long side, short side, long side...
