In this video, I build a home made marking gauge from scrap wood. https://youtu.be/m5ehhwZaghU
Found what looks like a Oak on construction site, called the company and they were happy to get rid of it, lucky me :)
I didn’t know this was a thing until this month when my wife showed me pictures and asked me to make one. This one is made out of an old pallet and some old house siding. Not difficult to make at all, just a simple box glued and nailed together. My wife stained it. I was skeptical while making it. It is basically just an ugly box. But it looks pretty cool once you set the tree in it, I gotta say. Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/m-oJBwRPGyk
Young woodworker here looking for some advice. I’m working on a 34” x 34” frame for squeegeeing film photographs after they have been developed in a darkroom. The design is fairly simple I’m using 5/4 white oak for the frame connected with finger joints and then cutting a dado in the middle of the pieces to allow for a piece of plywood and plexiglass to rest in. This will be inside a school and will be exposed (not submerged) to water for about half of the year. I am making this to replace a ...
I have a job where I need some thin stock ( about 1/8”) and my planer does not crank down that low for some reason. I also have some blocks that are about 6 1/2” square that I resawed for this project and they spin around in the planer because they are so short. I have often thought of using a sled to carry them through the saw and now I really need something like that. I planned to put a rail on the back for the cutter to cut against ,but the rollers push the wood through a...
The curled bits of inlay were carefully removed from the table and put aside. Then I used some water and a steam iron to heat the vacant areas and remove the old glue from the plywood base. I also used the same technique to remove the old glue from the removed inlay pieces. Then I used the steam iron again to steam the individual pieces of inlay an pressed them between two pieces of plywood to get them flat again. This worked quite well. Some of the inlay was so bad I had to replace it s...
This post is fairly image heavy—I’ll post a few here but to see all the images, please visit my woodworking blog) Accomplished a fair amount today. Before I got to work, I dusted off the base and the legs one final time and then primed the legs …and painted the base. It’s hard to tell, because I used white primer and white paint, but trust me, it looks nice in person. I put on two thin coats and used up almost a whole can of spray paint, but it sure does look ...
I’m making a new fence for my table saw in the Biesemeyer style to improve the performance of my machine.If you have seen my previous project on how to improve a crappy table saw i already have a shop made fence on it butI’ve never been a hundred percent happy with the fence stop as its not something my fellow woodworker could replicate because it requires a specific part,so my new fence has a home made stop.

Well. After letting the glue cure for a couple hours, went down to remove the clamps. Another fight broke out, as the longer clamps wanted to fall onto the floor, taking everything they could with them…..didn’t work. Clamped the case upside down to the bench, was going to level some edges.. Nice, thin shaving…..but, I wasn’t in the mood for things this slow. Got out the cambered Jack planes. Got the bottom almost leveled out, I figured I could install the b...
