A secret dovetail?

04-04-2014 12:08 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

been trying my hand at a few of those “Full Blind Dovetails” aka miter, or secret dovetails. From the outside, they look like a regular mitered joint. But, open the joint up, and a few dovetails appear. Anyway, did a little research, watch a bit of Roy Underhill, and made a sketch or two. Down in the Dungeon Shop, I had a few cut-offs of walnut 1×4s. Not very long ones, but something to putter around on. A bit of plane work to get them all about the same w...

Galoot Gloat: Craftsman Miter Saw

03-25-2014 03:20 AM by swirt | 11 comments »

A few weeks back I was in my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I saw a 24” long backsaw resting among the saws. I put it back…. I have a longer and older Disston. Then on another shelf I saw the Craftsman adjustable miter box. I knew just by looking that the saw was the mate to it. The saw had a price of $5.00 on it and the miter box sticker said $12. I smiled all the way to the counter, then all the way home. Cleaning, sanding, priming, painting, scraping, flap sandin...

Miter Saw Station #3: Complete!

03-23-2014 02:17 PM by bigfoot11 | 2 comments »

In part 1 and part 2, I completed frame, saw platform, and drawer. In this final article and video (of three part series), I created the dust shroud. The amount of dust that this contains is incredible! Before, after about 10 cuts, I would be covered in dust. Now I can basically cut until my heart’s content and still be able to breathe. There is a hardwood track so you can slide the Plexiglas out to do miter and bevel cuts or remove it completely for easy cleaning. I really dreaded c...

Miter Saw Station #2: Almost there!

03-23-2014 01:06 AM by bigfoot11 | 0 comments »

In part 1 I completed most of the work to build the frame and saw platform. In this second video (of three part series), I created the saw dust drawer and did some fine tuning. I filmed the final installment this afternoon so once I get the video and article put together, I’ll finish out the project for you guys. The final results really amazed me…especially this being my first real project I’ve shared with the world. Video: here My website with the write-up, more p...

Miter Saw Station #1: Project start

03-19-2014 12:53 AM by bigfoot11 | 2 comments »

Aside from the table saw, the miter saw is probably the most versatile tool not only in your shop but on the trucks of carpenters around the world. The Skil miter saw that I own cuts great, keeps aligned properly without much hassle, and is rock solid. The biggest downfall is dust collection….well rather lack thereof. Just cutting out the pieces for one of Jay’s Benches, left the shop covered in a layer of dust. The included bag simply does not catch a lot of the dust nor does the blade’s saf...

Tool thoughts #56: finally warm enough to get something done... & #facepalm moments

03-11-2014 06:08 PM by NedB | 3 comments »

pics to follow… my phone died and I’m still in the middle of things (came in to warm it up & get a charger cable). I’m finally getting to hanging my insulation out in the shop today. we’ve got temps in the 40’s finally… and while that’s not balmy to some, it is good enough for me. I picked up some lumbah for the project last week… but the thermometer kept reading just under 30°. That meant that IN the shop it would be about 20°. Today...

Woodshop Build #2: My Space

03-04-2014 12:59 AM by VarnellWoodworks | 8 comments »

A lot of you are probably used to seeing woodshops full of tools and sawdust. Some even have woodshops that the brothers Green would be jealous of. Well, I have neither. In my first blog in this series, I shared my opinions on table saws and told you which one I was purchasing. Today I will be talking about the space that will eventually become my woodshop. As you can see, it looks more like a garage than a woodshop but I’m going to change that over the course of the next few...

my first blog entry: I made a plexiglass cross cut sled! & step by Video

03-01-2014 06:12 PM by MikesProjects | 5 comments »

I needed a new table saw sled for a different saw i’m using. I’m currently finishing a miter saw cut station I built & needed a sled to make small cuts. After having made a few others I notice how wooden sleds react to moisture content in the air so I wanted this new one to be built with out wood. I made this new sled out of left over plexiglass I had laying around & used aluminum for the runners. The fence is actual bulletproof glass.It came out better looking than I wou...

Some useful jigs

02-20-2014 03:53 PM by Farrout | 3 comments »

I’m making some boxes and after changing the joint design multiple times, I decided to go with splined miter joints.This, of course, requires multiple miter cuts and a way to cut the spline slots. Here is the jig I made to cut the miters. It can also be turned around to make straight cuts. I made these supports to fit on my cross cut sled to cut the spline slots. There is no such thing as scrap, just pieces for future jigs.
