Hi guys ,, I had a request to make a tutorial with regards the endgrain Tumbling Block Design.First off,.., You need to decide the size of the blocks…. for this example I used 1” stock… Or something similar.. actually just over .. once dressed. Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

Table Saw Mobile Workstation #1: I love it when a plan comes together...

04-21-2008 11:00 PM by Greg Wurst | 21 comments »

Awhile back Wood Magazine had an article on building a mobile outfeed table that would fit over your table saw. Since I need all the space in my garage I can get, I went ahead and built one that would fit over my table saw to give me some much needed work space and a handy outfeed table. I thought this was pretty spiffy and a great use of space. As I always do I look at the latest project posts on Lumberjocks looking for inspiration for my next project. Whilst browsing I came ac...

Kids' Play Center #1: Choosing a Plan

03-10-2008 10:54 PM by Olaf Gradin | 6 comments »

For my son’s fifth birthday, my wife and I decided to check into an outdoor structure for him to play on. I’ve gone back and forth in my mind about this; I didn’t have one growing up, there are nice parks within a 15 minute drive, and he’s an only child at this point. On the other hand, I would love to build this for my son. There are plenty more pros and cons to weigh, but this story is more about the fact that we have…more or less…decided to build. Th...

09-10-2009 03:22 AM by poroskywood | 44 comments »

Hey everybody, after a few personal messages here is my version of a how to on a Drunken Checker Board. I of coarse bow to the Chairman of the Board and pay tribute with beer. This is a Off-Checker pattern I call “Drunken Alice in Wonderland” The “serendipitous” nature of this piece is appealing in a far out sort of way. Here Goes… So first I prepare the Material. I am using Hard Maple and Walnut both are surfaced flat and cut 1” x 9” x 14&...

Carving Using A Scroll Saw Pattern #1: The Simple Steps and a Free Pattern for You!

09-22-2012 01:16 AM by Keith Fenton | 15 comments »

Sheila (Landry) and I have been working to expand our business into new directions and in trying to appeal to a broader audience. One of our recent ideas was to make a simple carving from a scroll saw pattern in the hopes that we might interest some carvers or even people that may have an interest in carving, but not in scroll sawing. All you need to do this is plywood, varnish, paint (dark brown or black would be best), a brush, Dremel with a few bits (or any similar rotary tool) and orbi...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #5: Rolling Wood Storage Rack

06-06-2011 07:22 PM by rance | 11 comments »

I’ve seen several variations of these rolling wood storage units. Inspired by them, I came up with this one for a friend of mine: It incorporates storage for long lumber, sheet goods, and small turning blocks as well. About the only thing I might add would be dowel storage of some kind. Truth be told, I’d probably just put them in tubes and store them on one of the shelves. It is a typical A-Frame design with half lapped joints. For economy, most of the stick material is...

Now this is the third shop I have started and if I have learned anything it is this, to be successful you need a plan! There it is.

Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

10-19-2010 12:56 AM by zzzzdoc | 463 comments »

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 ...

Planning the Makeover #3: SketchUp Plans - Miter Saw & Router Mobile Workstation

02-19-2010 06:27 AM by Jeison | 10 comments »

I had some fun with this one, it still needs a bit of tweaking, need to add some details and adjust some dimensions, but I thought I’d throw it up to share until I have time to go back over it. I combined a pretty standard style Router cabinet from an issue of Wood magazine, with a Miter Saw cart from Fine Woodworking, and plopped them both onto a mobile base from another issue of Wood. The Miter Saw station has a flip up, extendable wing on the left side, and on the right side the ...
