Last summer, I picked up a router “table” by SKIL at a garage sale. $20 with everything BUT a router Later on, picked a B&D 1/4” Industrial all metal router. Managed to assemble the two together But, there were a couple problems. First, this thing is sitting ON my tool chest. Secondly, it is too short to set on the floor. Had some metal 3×3 from an old bed frame. Cut the two pieces down into four “legs” @ 27-1/4” long. Had some ...
Making decorations is fun. Woodworking, welding, and smithing are also fun. This time I combine them all and create a decorative sled. This is a very simple project that will get plenty of years use.

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] When I first started collecting free wood from along the street, it occurred to me to protect my power tools by making sure as possible that all the nails were out of the boards. If memory serves, Norm Abram placed this idea in my head. I bought a down and dirty wand style metal detector to check out the wood as I clean it up. The one pictured cost less than $20, maybe about $10 really. I’m not sure. I bought it several years ago from that auction w...
Here is a video of how I made the Diamond Edition holdfast. Still some things to work out, but looks good enough to make an actual one to sell.
In the wood shop today #26: Pulling off a bent lamination from the form, for a metal and walnut table base
Hi everyone, Have not posted here in a little while, been keeping busy in the wood shop! I’ve finally put together another video for my your tube channel. I’ve been working on a dining table base made with steel and some bent laminated Walnut. Have a look here as I pull the newly formed leg piece off of the mold and show you exactly how the table base will look once completed. Thanks hope you like it.Paul
My new (to me) Unisaw didn’t come with any safety equipment, and I’ve been having trouble finding a splitter that I like, so I decided that until I find one I really like, I’ll just make one and add it to my new ZC throat plate. I laid in bed last night racking my brain over what material I might have that would be easy to work with and I remembered some old shelf brackets I wasn’t using. I popped the end cap off, cut the dog legs off, did most of the filing and shapin...
I got a Beall system a few years ago.I started with the 3 circular pads.I liked it so much I also got the 3 polishing balls to do inside bowls.I also got an old motor for $2.00 at a garage sale so I could have a dedicated polishing setup.The motor is plugged in to an outlet box under the end of the bench. The receptacle it’s plugged into is controlled by a switch also under the end of the bench. The other receptacle is unswitched for plugging the other equipment in when needed. The outl...
It is stated right there on the can, “drives out moisture”... Well ok, have never heard of nor believe that this would not have been discovered and a mighty fine quick trick if there wasn’t a downside… But made you look :) Anyone know the effects of WD-40 on wood feel free to share… Certainly know that I have recently been putting plenty of it on wooden handles and the like while cleaning riveted metals etc. but wipe it off fairly quickly and have never...
