Make an End Center Marking Jig

10-31-2012 02:49 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

An end center marking jig is a simple and very useful jig to have in the shop. It is used to locate and mark the center at one or both ends of your square or round stock. great for locating and marking the center of dowels, etc. This shop jig uses very little scrap wood and takes no time to build. In the video I go into a very brief explanation of 30-60-90 and 45-45-90 triangles as they are used in the shop along with how the 30-60-90 triangle is used in the jig as the marking guide. ...

End table for wife's room #1: Bases cut and one assembled.

10-16-2012 02:33 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 10 comments »

I’m working on the companion end tables to the pentagon cocktail table. The top will be solid oak with Brazilian Cherry surrounding it. It’s nice to work on an easy project for a change. Gluing and fastening the base was a one hour job as opposed to a 5 hour job. All the wood is cut and ready to be assembled. I hopethey turn out nice even though they will be fairly basic (and small).

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #3: Diamonds and rain

09-30-2012 12:51 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 18 comments »

I added the diamonds to the table top. It was a bit of a chore because of the imperfect line up of the pentagons. I spent a lot of time tweaking a few angles by half a degree and sneaking in the exact length. Instead of making a bunch of diamonds and trying to cut them perfectly, I used triangles. In retrospect, diamonds would have been a nightmare and the triangles look good. Despite my plans to use maple, I went ahead and used oak. The oak came from a drawer front that was kicked to ...

A Router Bit Cabinet with a Secret

09-29-2012 06:25 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 7 comments »

Hey guys and Gals, this weeks project is just a fun simple shop project with a twist. I decided to build a Router bit cabinet for the shop. Well that was the plan, then i started thinking about a way to make it a little more interesting.. Then it hit me, Why not make a Router bit cabinet with a Secret Compartment? I came up with a simple way of locking and unlocking the compartment. So one thing led to another and this is the results. Now the cabinet itself is not made of anything fancy. Sinc...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #2: Top is being mounted

09-27-2012 03:21 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I started mounting the table top today. It occurs to me, in hindsight, that I may have caused myself a lot of frustration. I’ll find out soon enough when I try to place the diamonds. Be that as it may, it’s turning out pretty well but you can still tell that a rookie is doing the work. I was able to use the warped pieces but now I have a few pieces that are slightly higher than others. I just bought myself more hours of sanding. I’ve also got a few gaps. A f...

Cocktail table for my wife's room. #1: Table top underway

09-24-2012 01:34 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 13 comments »

I’m making a small table for my wife’s TV room. All my lumberjocks friends have given me the courage and some knowhow for me to once again stretch the envelope and try the hardest project to this point. Thank you my friends! The room is very small and needs very small end tables and a small cocktail table. I figured that since the room is next to the entryway with the dodecahedron pendant light, I might as well push the theme. On top of that, I own the lumber already which h...
