Shop Projects #2: Table Saw Miter Sled

10-20-2017 05:42 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

After having made my 1st table saw sled, I knew I had to have a miter sled as well. A few weeks ago I really found myself at a loss when I needed to make some accurate 45-degree angles for the clock I was making for my wife. I had previously watched a number of videos on this subject and found a method that looked like it would suit my needs and available materials. Here is a pretty good picture of the sled I cannot tell you just how happy I am with this sled! if you take a few ...

Mongo: my first real workbench #6: The right tools for the job... even if you have to make them.

04-12-2017 06:45 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

I’m a big believer in having the right tools for the job; I’m a process engineer by trade and in my experience the analysis of any given task/process invariably reveals a substandard or nonexistent tool for completion… this bench is no exception. When my attention turned to laying lines for the legs and aprons where 90° was no longer my reference point, I realized I was going to be relying on angle/miter gauges for accurate layout. As I mentioned before, I’ve never ...

Quick Tip #6: Miter Sled

09-16-2016 03:31 PM by Kent Shepherd | 2 comments »

I frequently do smaller moldings in cabinet doors and other projects. I find it easier and safer to use a sled on my table saw rather than a miter saw. I can see my mark to cut by better this way. The small waste pieces don’t fly around as much. Years ago I was measuring a cabinet door job. As I was sketching the cabinets, the trim carpenter was cutting some small molding. The end piece flew off the saw and hit my face right by my eye. It bled a lot, but it turned out fine. However,...

Hints and Tips #25: Old trick for an open miter

07-29-2016 05:53 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

[Below] Ever have one miter that doesn’t quite close? Here’s a trick I got from somewhere at some time. [Below] Dab some wood glue on the open miter and work it in to the joint. Wipe off any excess, but don’t use water. [Below] Go over the joint with your sander. A random orbit sander works best. The saw dust from the sanding fills the joint. Note: this won’t work on wide gaps unless you’re painting the piece.

Dave's Workshop #17: Handy Mini Multi-Miter Sled

07-24-2016 08:55 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

This is one of those jigs I’ve thought about for a while and finally decided to just do it. It’s down and dirty, focused very much on function and not at all on prettiness. Originally I planned to make a dedicated 90 degree miter gauge since the one for my saw is pretty unreliable. It works, but—well, you know. After I got the 90 degree part finished it occurred to me to try some added functionality. On the board behind the fence I added two fences, one at 45 de...
