resawing #1: At last, a resawing jig!

1853 days ago by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I got 2 1” Timberwolf blades from Suffolk Machinery Corp. – 2TPI and 3TI – several months ago, and have been dying to try them out ever since. In that time I had several more projects, mom’s 10-day long yearly visit, my best friends’ wedding, a project I built for that (that I should post one of these days), and so much else. I didn’t want to use them until I had a resawing jig ready to go, so realizing that time was now, I jumped on it yesterday, later in ...

Quilting with Wood

1632 days ago by Dave Owen | 10 comments »

A friend asked if I could help come up with a good way to create a ‘wooden quilt’ wall hanging about two feet square that his wife wanted for her sewing room. The picture above is one of four identical 3-1/2” square x 1/4” deep patterns that are located near the corners of the larger pattern. While different size members are involved in the larger pattern, the jig I came up with can be used to make the entire quilt pattern. The pattern is quite interesting in...

Table saw miter sled

1016 days ago by Stevinmarin | 24 comments »

Simple, yet very effective sled for making 45 degree miters. It’s so easy to make, I started it at 11:00 this morning, shot and edited the video by 4:00! This has to be some sort of record for me. Of course, if you make just the sled and not the video, it’ll take about an hour.

Hardwood Inlays made in the Woodworking Shop

1352 days ago by Bob Simmons | 2 comments »

“Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” ...Henry Ford (1863-1947) As we near the holidays it’s time to start planning ahead for gifts that will be made in the woodworking shop. In the picture you can see many wood segments that have been cut on the dedicated miter sled for the table saw. It’s quite important that the angles of the segments are consistent so that they line up tightly within the decorative wood pattern. H...

Checking a shop made miter sled for accuracy

1080 days ago by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 8 comments »

Using the traditional angle checking tools, such as drafting triangles and squares, still is a good place to start when building tablesaw sleds, especially miter sleds. I don’t trust miter guages to stay on angle throughout a whole job. A picture frame, for example, has 8 miter cuts and just a small bump on a common miter guage can cause it to lose its setting between cuts. So I rely on fixed, shop made miter sleds. But making sure they’re exactly at the desired angle is critical....

Miter Sled on the Cheap

108 days ago by iamcliff | 12 comments »

I have a few projects coming up that I need to make mitered corners for, like picture frames and such. I have not had much luck in the past with my miter saw. I guess the positive stops at 45 degrees are not perfect or something because I have aligned everything on it. I have been wanting to make a miter sled for quite some time now so I decided to just do it using whatever I have on hand. I will definitely remake this later on when I can afford proper materials, but at least I have som...
