Miter Saw Station #3: Complete!

127 days ago by bigfoot11 | 2 comments »

In part 1 and part 2, I completed frame, saw platform, and drawer. In this final article and video (of three part series), I created the dust shroud. The amount of dust that this contains is incredible! Before, after about 10 cuts, I would be covered in dust. Now I can basically cut until my heart’s content and still be able to breathe. There is a hardwood track so you can slide the Plexiglas out to do miter and bevel cuts or remove it completely for easy cleaning. I really dreaded c...

Miter Saw Station #2: Almost there!

128 days ago by bigfoot11 | 0 comments »

In part 1 I completed most of the work to build the frame and saw platform. In this second video (of three part series), I created the saw dust drawer and did some fine tuning. I filmed the final installment this afternoon so once I get the video and article put together, I’ll finish out the project for you guys. The final results really amazed me…especially this being my first real project I’ve shared with the world. Video: here My website with the write-up, more p...

Miter Saw Station #1: Project start

132 days ago by bigfoot11 | 2 comments »

Aside from the table saw, the miter saw is probably the most versatile tool not only in your shop but on the trucks of carpenters around the world. The Skil miter saw that I own cuts great, keeps aligned properly without much hassle, and is rock solid. The biggest downfall is dust collection….well rather lack thereof. Just cutting out the pieces for one of Jay’s Benches, left the shop covered in a layer of dust. The included bag simply does not catch a lot of the dust nor does the blade’s saf...

Rocket Bookcase #6: Assembling Stage Two

336 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Had a little time today and thanks to the Kreg jig, made a lot of progress, relatively speaking. First up, I used the coping saw to make a duplicate shelf for the upper stage. Then I cut out a rectangular shelf for the very top and sanded everything smooth and to the correct size for a snug fit. Out came the Kreg and in a few minutes I had pocket holes drilled for all the shelves, glue applied and screwed in place. Once clamps were applied to the sides, I came back and drilled pilot h...

Castle Bookcase #3: Carcase Assembly

346 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Spent an hour in the shop today assembling the carcase. It was very quick. First I marked on the side where the bottom shelf and top shelf would be, drew layout lines and coated with glue. Then I put the shelf in place, tightened the Kreg screws and bam, shelves installed. I flipped the side with two shelves attached and repeated the process for the other side and voila, sides and shelves done! Love the pocket screws…perfect method for plywood. Then I repeated the steps fo...

Castle Bookcase #2: First Cuts

346 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today, I transferred all my measurements from the plans to the 1/2” ACX plywood (4’x4’ sheets) I bought last week. Whipped out the Versacut and sliced and diced till i had the sides, top, bottom shelf, main shelf inner support and toy front cut out. I also decided to lose the lop shelf and shrink the height from 42” to 36” to better fit the space i have to work with in Kylie’s room. Also decided to cut down the large book space (20” is way too b...

Workshop Projects #2: Assembly Cart - Shelf Assembly

567 days ago by Pheirendt | 0 comments »

I wanted the shelves to be extremely strong and have a good size lip to keep stuff from falling off while I move the rack around. I typically over-engineer my projects, but with as much weight as this rack has on it I am very glad I built it solid. I glued and screwed (with pocket holes using my Kreg Jig) the A-Frames, but I decided to keep the shelves without glue so I could break down or change the rack. The long shelf sides are the rails that connect the A-Frames so I put 2 pocket hol...

Workshop Projects #1: Assembly Rack

568 days ago by Pheirendt | 4 comments »

What started out as a simple clamp rack project grew into an entire assembly center. I started out wanting a mobile rack for all of my clamps to make assembly easier and avoid the running back and forth for clamps and/or having the work table covered in clamps so there is no room to work. The next thing I knew the project grew into the idea of having everything needed for assembly on a mobile cart – clamps, glue, biscuit joiners and biscuits, dowels jigs and dowels, pocket jig pocke...
