Homemade Benchtop Router Table

11-03-2012 03:09 PM by mxrdrver | 2 comments »

I finished up this router table the other day, and thought I would post a couple pics so others could see. The stand is from an old Ridgid table saw stand. I just cut the legs down with my angle grinder. The top is made from 2 pieces of 1/2” MDF topped with plastic laminate. It measures 20”x30”x1” thick. I took special care when I routed out the insert top. I wanted it to look like professional. I epoxied 5/16 nylock nuts all round for the leveling bolts to set in. The...

Cheap Table: finishing up the base

02-04-2013 02:52 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, front and back leg assemblies are out of the clamps. Need to fit a brace between the front and back apron. Since this is a Hand Tool exercise, I guess i will do it that way First a piece of scrap needed to be cut to length. Nice Sycamore Handled Crosscut saw. Next, lay out for a Dovetail. One on each end. I used an old router bit to mark out the dovetail shape. Then a little saw work Then cut out the waste with a chisel. I chop down at an angle to match the shape...

The Re-designed Mortise Pal #1: Evolution to Excellence

12-05-2010 11:14 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

If you didn’t have to improve a great product would you bother? Would your improvements be incremental or would you really go for it? This is a blog not just about the simplicity and functionality of this jig, but also the progression of the inventor’s ideas and how they are incorporated into the latest model. For those not familiar with this tool, it is a router jig that facilitates perfectly sized and matched mortises for fixed or loose tenon joinery. It was won many awar...

How to Cut Rabbets with Hand Tools

05-03-2014 12:36 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’m excited to share a quick video tutorial about how to cut rabbet joints by hand, with a few simple hand tools. This method focuses on cutting rabbets along the grain, which is especially useful for cutting moldings (first step in using hollows & rounds molding planes), picture frames, etc. Go to this original blog entry (here) for some links to the tools that I used in this tutorial (you can use variations):-Marking gauge (I...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #2: Still gathering supplies

02-20-2015 09:33 PM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

So this is taking too long, I’m impatient. I called the wood supplier last week and was told that more 8/4 hard maple would be in the store on Tuesday. I called Tuesday and was told Wednesday. Called Wednesday and was told Thursday. I give up, so I went south to anther supplier in Eugene and I was only able to find one suitable board to complete the legs and one really nice 8/4 piece of walnut for the chop and the deadman. While I was there I got a call from the shop in portland that th...

Workbench Build #23: Where we are at since last update...

04-03-2013 02:32 AM by Airframer | 2 comments »

OK, so I haven’t had much progress going on since my last update other than finishing up the glueup of the top. I still need to trim up the ends and get the skirt glued up but this is the end width of the top plus tool tray. Once I finished with that my wonderfully tuned and sharpened #6 arrived from Mauricio which showed me just how lacking and out of shape my current selection of tools were. So I have set upon a side mission of getting the tools I have collected to ...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #8: A slow day but I am now officially working on hull 816!

07-18-2013 03:01 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I didn’t get much done today as I am feeling under the weather, have had for the last several days and just can’t seem to shake it. Shorty from PDR sent me my hull number today. I have half of the entire Manitoba fleet in my shop LOL!The other hull was registered in 2010 so it may not even be afloat any more. I’m probably going to head into Winnipeg this weekend so I don’t anticipate getting too much done. I still have to figure out a name.

A different kind of challenge

07-27-2008 11:40 PM by Michael Brailsford | 2 comments »

A few years back Fine Woodworking magazine did an article that gave me a new inspiration. That was to utilize space on a piece of furniture that would otherwise be wasted and install a secret compartment. Now I don’t have sensative government documents I am hiding nor do I have priceless pieces of art I am trying to hide nor secret documents that once I give it to the press will make us feel differently about, let’s say, Coca Cola. I just felt inspired to try a new kind of chal...
