Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #7: Final Thoughts...

1113 days ago by Lockwatcher | 3 comments »

Well, I think the table turned out just fine… I didn’t run into any real problems during construction…however I did notice when I was ripping the original lumber (as well as subsequent sanding) that the wood had a very strong smell to it. Not sure why – sometimes you get that from pine. Make sure if you build one of these to countersink & predrill your screw holes – otherwise, you may split the lumber. I have not put together a plan as of yet for fini...

Half-lap joinery for a Painters Easel.

1156 days ago by degoose | 13 comments »

The easel was made from recycled silky oak….using half-lap joinery as seen here. Half- lap is where material is remove to half the depth of each piece and then fitted together… I used my new SCMS and set the depth on the micro adjustment screw.. fairly quick… and I was able to make the angled scarfs easily enough… I used a spacer to move the timber away from the fence so I could get the cut right across. I used glue and clamps.. then dri...

Garage Workshop Transformation #2: The Ultimate Tool Stand

1371 days ago by John Steffen | 7 comments »

As evidenced in my first post in this series, I have a severe lack of organization in my garage/shop. Two weekends ago I threw up some shelves with my ‘chop saw’ (that’s for you Don) so we could get my soon-to-be wife’s side of the garage organized. That was a quick and easy project, and we (mostly she) got that part of the garage in tiptop shape. Well last weekend she wanted me to start cleaning my side (two thirds) of the garage. We’re getting married in Se...

833 days ago by bj383ss | 4 comments »

Today I finished my miter saw station upgrade for now. I added a hood around the saw and ran dust collection hoses for the saw and the OSS sander. Dust Shroud T fitting with blast gate for the saw. The blast gate mounts up underneath the drop down bench and then it extends to the edge of the bench so I can access it from the front The tee branches off throught the bench and to the sander. This is a bad picture but you can see at the top is the dust collector ...

Crosscut Sleds Made Simple #1: Thinking about making a sled?

833 days ago by MoshupTrail | 3 comments »

I can make a crosscut sled in about an hour. I put this off for a long time and when I finally did it, I wondered why I waited so long. No, it won’t be fancy, but it will be functional and accurate. Here’s the first one I did: The basic crosscut sled was so easy that this weekend I made a 45 degree miter sled. SO, WHAT’‘S THE SECRET? It’s simple. The only thing that has to be carefully measured is the angle between the saw kerf and the refe...

A New Work Bench, Mikey Style

656 days ago by MT_Stringer | 6 comments »

Several years ago, I built a simple work table as a table saw outfeed table. It quickly became my do it all table. It is made out of 2×4’s and two pieces of 1/2 inch cd plywood which I had stored out in my shed. Fast forward to the present time. Lately I have gotten a renewed interest in woodworking. I have been doing some type of carpentry since the 70’s when I was helping my dad build pole barns. After my dad passed away, I was given his Craftsman table saw (circa 197...

These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...
