Shop Tips & Tricks #22: How to Stabilize Anything With Legs

05-25-2017 11:41 PM by GnarlyErik | 1 comment »

How to stabilize anything with legs – except maybe some politicians! It does not matter how many legs the item has either. (Anything with just three legs is self-stabilizing.) We’ve all been irritated with a jiggly chair or table which just doesn’t want to be steady. This is a simple little trick which makes it easy to correct the problem – and maybe be a hero to your lady or friend too. The idea is very simple, but I’ve noticed that many people approach this ...

Stanley No. 104 Wood Level Restoration

08-16-2015 03:59 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

This story starts on a Saturday morning when I got a Facebook message from my friend Rob. “We are having a yard sale and there are a ton of old tools” Rob said. So ofcourse I got in my car and headed over there. I found a lot of great old tools but this week we will focus on the Level I found, It’s a Stanley No. 104 Level 18” long. This will make a great restoration project I thought… I made a video of the restoration as well, you can see it here: View on Yo...

Leveling My Workbench Top

03-15-2015 02:54 AM by Jarred | 0 comments »

I recently built Nick Offerman’s leveling jig from Fine Woodworking (I think it’s from #222). I made it a little stockier than his, longer and wider, to allow leveling slabs up to 8’ x 5’ in size. I’m in the process of building a workbench. The first step was to use the jig to level the bench. I used shims to level an area of garage floor under the support beams. I placed the workbench top (which is made of two layers of 6/4 elm and weighs about 200 pounds) on...

Living Room Display Shelves #5: Wow - that is awesome! Oh NOOOOOoooooo........

02-19-2013 02:49 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

I started assembling the shelves. The backside of the narrow shelf was first. I was going very very slow but I was marvelling at how well it was coming together. I kept pullng out the carpenters square and the level. It was getting hard to contain myself. You see, my cuts were fitting so well that I’d check to see if I had it square and there it was. Not a 32nd of an inch off. I Got the first backside finished with just the 3 main stretchers and stood it up in the garage. It ...

Shop Update #11: Shed base complete!

05-24-2011 05:37 AM by TheKingInYellow | 2 comments »

Ideally, I would have been posting a picture of a completed shed, but a combination or rainy weather and a pukey daughter meant that I lost a lot of time on the weekend. However, I got this accomplished: It’s a good start, and digging down two or three inches into the gumbo they call soil here in the red river valley after a solid day of rain was a huge undertaking. Having said that, the platform is resting on about 3” of quarter-down gravel roughly levelled and packed. ...

Router Table #13: Leveling the Insert - Incra Style

02-01-2010 06:18 AM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

Up until now I was leveling my insert (also on my TS) with blue painters tape – yeah, ghetto, but it works, cheap, and available. When I made the order with Lee Valley last week, I ordered a pack of 10 capscrews and though I’d try to incorporate the leveling concept on the Incra made table. as I stated in my previous post- If I had to start it over, I’d just order the table top from Incra and be done with it – they are worth their price. however. since I already had...

Workbench Project #3: Tage Frid time!

10-22-2007 08:52 PM by Jon3 | 7 comments »

I don’t have access to a 24” planer or drum sander, so I figured I was on my own. Much googling later, I found the Tage Frid method for levelling a benchtop in situ with a router. Linky I grabbed me some cheap, but cleanly joined poplar, built out my custom rails and router sled, bought a big honking flat router bit, and set up to flatten! I took a very thin pass across the top, just barely touching the top of the cup in the bench. This operations throws up a HUGE a...
