Rack 'em up with a custom Billiard Rack

03-08-2013 08:20 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 3 comments »

One of my favorite pass times is playing pool (Billiards) and I thought this would be a cool project to share with you. If you have a pool table in your house or man cave or if you know someone who owns a pool table this would be a great gift to give… Also be sure to check out and subscribe to my new Youtube Channel “The Rundown” to get follow ups on my main project videos, that are on my main channel, as well as the rundown on small easy to build projects, ...

Workbench Build #18: Finishing up The Moxon!

03-04-2013 02:06 AM by Airframer | 4 comments »

I banished myself to the shop today in an effort to finally finish up the Moxon vise build for the bench. Lets just say it was an unqualified success! The day started out with drilling the pilot holes for the threaded rods. I finally put to use another flea market find. This old B&D drill works great and was only $15! The only downside to it is the 1/4” drive but fortunately I was still going to be able to fit this in my drill press. Once the pilot holes were drill...

Workbench Build #17: More Moxon... Finally doing some glue ups..

03-03-2013 05:19 AM by Airframer | 5 comments »

I finally got off my arse and started to finish up this Moxon vise. I really can’t wait to have this guy functional. It will make building this bench a lot easier as far as hand planing goes. So far both hand wheels are done and ready to go.. Then I got started gluing up the rest of it. This was kinda a test run for the bench top glueup and I’m glad I did this first. I first tried to dowel the clamp “leg” (no idea what it’s real name is) you kn...

Accessory Wing For The Tablesaw

03-01-2013 02:57 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 12 comments »

This week I decided to rebuild my tablesaws extension wing/router table. This time I removed the factory metal wing along with my old router table extension and built a new wing using the MDF and famica from last weeks build. This new extension wing combos as a router table as well as it has a pull out support arm that allows me to support my material as i cross cut long boards or sheets goods no matter if I am using a sled or not, because the support arm is adjustable. Here is a look at some...

Game Calls #2: Scratch Box Turkey Calls

02-28-2013 05:14 PM by ghost5 | 1 comment »

After posting a few of these neat little calls I thought some other folks might like to know how to make them. They are an easy project and another way to use some of that scrap wood. The easiest way to make a scratch box is to have a dedicated mortiser set up with a 1/2”cutter but since I don’t have one here is how I do it. If you do have one you can quickly see how to use it to accomplish what I am doing. I start with a 1 & 5/8”“x4” piece 1/2” t...

Workbench Build #16: New Crank Handles...

02-27-2013 12:50 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

After finishing up one of the hand cranks for the Moxon vise I realized that the poor excuse of a turning I did on my leg vise crank handle just wasn’t going to cut it. So after that revelation I scrounged up some scraps of Padauk and Oak and started piecing together a segmented stackup that would become my new crank handles for both the leg and wagon vises. Once the glue was set on those I cut different sized plugs out with my hole saw set which works out nicely b...

Game Calls #1: Turkey Friction Call

02-26-2013 12:42 PM by ghost5 | 8 comments »

Well, thanks to the comments and questions I have gotten I dug through my pics to find one I had on how to make a pot call. So for the folks that want a quick tutorial here we go. A pot call is basically a shallow dish containing two ledges inside. One is cut into the rim to hold the playing surface while the second is a ring left in the center raised to clear the bottom of the pot and still leave a space between the sound board that rests on it and the playing surface above it. One thi...

Workbench Build #15: Moxon 3.. Almost done.. I think..

02-25-2013 02:47 AM by Airframer | 8 comments »

So, have you ever wondered how to plane a large piece of wood for a work bench without a workbench? Yep, me too lol. This was another day full of learning. Lesson one was that the blade I had on my band saw was too wide to cut the hard wood and that was why I was having so much trouble with drift. Number two was that my Bucks Brothers 6 1/2” block plane is actually a decent little worker now that I have tuned it up. Lastly… it is hard as hell trying to face plane 36 X 5 3/4 ...
