1194 days ago by Bob Simmons | 8 comments »

“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge, while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.”Carlos Casateda…Peruvian-born American anthropologist and author…(1925-1998) The barber pole wood inlay banding is one of the more common banding patterns that we see adorning wood projects. While the design may be somewhat common there are numerous ways in which the basic design can be varied. For ex...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #1: Top&Legs Jointed, Starting to layout the Wooden Screws.

777 days ago by Mauricio | 11 comments »

A while black I posed a forum topic asking for folks advise on how to use this piece of wood for a workbench. A cabinet maker I bought my band saw from gave it to me for free. It was made from two slabs from a green oak tree so it cupped pretty bad. It had been used as a table for a restaurant. After assimilating everyone’s advice I decided I would cut out the piths, re-glue the top and use it to make a French workbench like Roy Underhill does in one of his shows. I love the splayed...

Production jig for multi business card holders

1584 days ago by Bob #2 | 14 comments »

I sometimes get requests for things I have made one of and find that making a second one is as time consuming as the first and prone to the same errors.To avoid this I try to make jigs that take the guessing out and speed up the process when the need arises. Special thanks to Dusty56 who inspired me and helped me get up and running on this project. To follow this build please see my blog here:http://shopprojectsandjigs.blogspot.com/2011/01/production-jig-for-multi-business-card.html

Router Sled for Flattening End Grain Cutting Board

1019 days ago by Mauricio | 9 comments »

I glued up a cutting board with a table saw that was not properly aligned. As a result I had a glue up that was relatively flat on one side but way out of whack on the other side. The flat side was a huge pain to flatten with my little Ryobi belt sander even with 40 Grit belts. The rough side needed about 1/8” of wood that needed to be removed over most of the board. This is no joke with hard maple. It would have taken hours. My lumber dealer referred me to a cabinet shop that...

mitre jig

84 days ago by dclark1943 | 14 comments »

Recently Big Al, i.e. “Boxguy” posted a jig he had built for cutting accurate mitre joints. I built one this afternoon, and thought I would share my attempt at making the same jig. Total cost for the jig was around $17.00 – - the all in one clamp. The time was 2 1/2 hours. MDF remnants, left over material from other projects, and junk drawer parts finished it to this point. Still have to finish up the stop system, but was anxious to use it today, so will add the stop tom...

Evolution of my router planer #4: Version 1.2a

1272 days ago by TZH | 4 comments »

Version 1.2a At this point I decided to get more “radical” in my design approach. I removed two of the cross rails (found out through experience that I didn’t need them anyway). Then I took the corner poles out of the flanges and put a “sleeve” on the side of my table for the corner poles to slide into (see photo below). Electrical conduit clamps work great for attaching the sleeves. This design also allowed me to adjust the height of the router sled in...

Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench #1: Milling the pieces

469 days ago by lysdexic | 23 comments »

When I ordered the BenchCrafted hardware I also ordered the hardware for the Moxon vise. Not only was I inspired by BrandonW’s bench but also his Moxon vise. So, it has been sitting in my shop for about nine months. Brandon’s Moxon Vise The plan is to make a Moxon Vise Bench-top Bench because when I doing fine work I find myself slumping over for extended periods of time. That kind of zaps the fun of it after a while. Furthermore, I admit to being spoiled when comes to h...

Evolution of my router planer #1: First Version: 1.0

1274 days ago by TZH | 9 comments »

One of the things I found out very early on in my type of woodworking is that the slabs I use in my projects are often in dire need of planing. The problem with this is the thickness planer I had was not large enough to accommodate the width of most of these slabs. So, I began reviewing my old book and magazine libraries and surfing the Net to try and find something else that might meet the need for the type of work I planned to do. The results of my search were mixed. The very first opti...

Table saw island #7: The sliding flip up out feed extension table

1377 days ago by 559dustdesigns | 9 comments »

I have been looking forward to this part of the table saw island for a long time. In fact its been in process for a month or so, but I have had the idea to build one for years. I need to have out feed support on the table saw when ever cutting large sheet goods or long lumber. However I don’t always need the extra table taking up space and I don’t always need the support in the same position on the back of the bench. So here is my first sliding flip up out feed extension table, bu...
