I saw this in an older Fine Woodworking issue (#202) and was compelled to finish my outfeed table for my Unisaw. Mine needs to be built a little different as I have the sliding table to the left of my saw, and the left extension wing is removed. My storage below the table will really only have only one usable side and end. I designed it to be 90 degrees from the photo, two drawers at the bottom, table saw blade storage, and an open spot for my dado blade kits on the higher level. I ...
At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...
As winter comes up on the horizon I will be doing most of my work with the garage closed. That will make my dust problems even worse. I have had Asthma all of my life. It improved as I reached adulthood but probably not as much as it would have if I had not been smoking a pack a day for 15 years. Hey if you drank a fifth or two of Vodka a day you would smoke too! LOL All I can say for that is my 7 year old son got me to stop smoking last Christmas by telling me not to bother coming back in...
It was another day of fun and creativity yesterday. I had originally planned on cutting out the next candle tray, but it was quite windy and rainy all day long. I need to do a quick routing on the edges of each of the trays and I usually do that outside, but the weather just wasn’t cooperating. Even though it only takes a few minutes to rout, I thought it best to wait and go on to ‘plan B’. I like having a ‘plan B’. I think it is something that everyone sh...
I’ve cut and installed the corner and end blocks on the mold with just a dab of glue, so when I remove the mold, they release easily. These are what the ribs (sides) attach to. The blocks are made of willow because of its lightness and the added benefit that it is a fairly straight grained wood which makes cutting with the inside gouge an easy task. I then drew the points and top and bottom using the template. These are two different violins – reason for two templates. U...
Project Status: Planning phase This is a sketch of the workbench. I’m still working on some of the design/looking for parts and ideas. This plan includes the “less expensive” top… I will eventually put a really nice top on it, but need something functional right off. It will also include two veritas vises: Front Vise and Twin-Screw Vise I like these two vises but will add a bit of cost to the top. Some questions about the future top: Round or...
My miter saw station. The middle section might be versatile and house other tools that would benefit from a larger out-feed table. Project Status: Lumber Purchased
In this series we will be talking Custom…. a custom made Torque WorkCentre that is..A short time ago I was approached by a rather large Cabinetmaking/Joinery company with regards a special job they need to do…It seems that as part of a multi million dollar contract, they need to make a variety of desks, both stand alone and with returns [ so this means that some have two gable ends and some only one..]. The desks were made from 54 mm [just over 2 inches] thick plywood ranging in...

Tommy has done it again. His updated website is now provided twenty plus video clips of the Tool Box Build. FYI, Tommy released a DVD on this project about a year ago.

Follow this link to get to T’s website. http://www.thomasjmacdonald.com/ Now, look in the lower right corner under “What&...
