Chop Saw Dust Hood #3: Outlet & Saw Swivel Clearance

11-30-2009 06:30 PM by BlankMan | 2 comments »

Well, I didn’t get to spend as much time over the 4 day Thanksgiving Holiday weekend as I wanted to working on this but I made some progress. I was actually hoping to have it done but not having the time and having to determine and make the template to do the cutout for the saw swivel clearance took a while. The cutout is not a continuous arc of the same radius because you need clearance for the guard here, the handle there and then the motor. And determining where to put the outlet was...

Texas Star #1: Learning the 2D Texas Star

08-09-2013 03:48 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

Howdy,Earlier today I was trying to learn a simple way to make a Texas Star. My neighbor wants to inlay a star on a table and we were both rather perplexed. I should have searched through the forum topics instead of the projects. I found a few cool posts about it. But it was too late. We were already making firewood out of reclaimed pine. I managed to make the prototype as the sun was setting. Ok – Here is what I have. You need to cut 18 degree angles down the length of...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #2: Building the legs...

03-27-2011 12:50 AM by Lockwatcher | 0 comments »

All of the lumber for the legs has been sized…now to glue them up… I cut a small piece of the “frame” lumber, so that it would be easier to glue up the legs with the proper sized notch. The final size of the legs is 24 1/2” long (the glued up short section is 5” shorter than the longer piece; 19 1/2” in this case). Above: The first leg is glued-up. Check the size of your notch with a sample cut from your upper or lower frame lumber. Aft...

Obelisks #2: Making an obelisk incense burner

12-19-2012 05:56 PM by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

Here are the steps I used to make an obelisk incense burner. I selected a 3 1/2” square by 7” long piece of pretty wood. Box elder in this case. I made a drawing to scale and then had to plan the steps in the process so I did not get ahead of my self because it would be impossible to do some of the steps out of order. Being an incense burner it need air flow to keep the cone burning. I started with the top vent holes while the block was whole. 4 -3/16 holes on a 3/4”...

Miter/Workbench Station #1: The Beginning

01-27-2010 06:25 PM by alexbarlage | 10 comments »

Miter Saw / Workbench in stock lumber stage Framed base of bench, 5/8” OSB, 2×4 frame 16” O.C Base with 1/8” sacrificial hardboard on top. I need some opinions on the hardboard fastening, can’t decided which route to go. Should I use fasteners or adhesive? I’m leaning towards the adhesive, but then once you pick that, you then have a broad spectrum of types of adhesive. What has everyone else used in this application? I plan on ruining the top at so...

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...

New Yankee Miter Bench Vs. Utimate Tool Stand #1: Concept

01-26-2009 12:31 AM by scarpenter002 | 4 comments »

So I had always planned to build Norm’s Miter Bench and Storage project in my workshop, but then I ran into the Ultimate Tool Stand. The more I started thinking about it, the more I liked the idea of combining the two concepts into one unit. I am currently planning to recess the miter saw area into the Norm’s bench. I will make the saw removable so that it may be replaced with a router table, portable planer, pocket hole jig, mortiser, sanding station, and bench top. Since the...

Grain Matching Corners on a Box #1: How Many Can You do?

11-12-2009 04:11 AM by scrappy | 11 comments »

I think I have come up with a way to match all 4 sides. I will be making a box when I can get back in the shop.(hurt my shoulder and LOML won’t let me play until next week) Will take step by step pics and post in this series for everyone. Keep an eye open for updates. If anyone else has a process for this, feel free ...

Making simple boxes with inlay designs in lid.

01-09-2012 07:50 PM by Jim Finn | 1 comment »

I make simple boxes, mostly of cedar with poplar inlays. There are many fine ways to make boxes and this is about the simplest. I make them 11”x8”x2 1/2” deep with hinged lid. 8” is my limit of the width of wood so anything over that will have a splice in it, which I avoid doing. I start by planeing and re-sawing the 1” thick rough eastern red cedar to 3/8” thickness on my band saw. I then cut strips to 2 1/4” to form the sides ...
