Don't have the money for a table saw, then Make your Own!!!!

04-29-2012 11:43 AM by Woodworker_Collins | 10 comments »

I started this project a while ago but only finished it now this idea has been done before but most people just cut a slot in some plywood and attach their circular saw, whereas i got a piece of MDF and attached it to a black and decker workmate, i cut a recess in it for my circular saw and screwed into place, i cut mitre slots in the top of the mdf so i can make jigs to attach to the saw (crosscut sled) then i made a custom clamp that tightens very hard to the table. Materials cost is ar...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #683: Monitor Project Complete - All Systems Go!

04-26-2012 11:48 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Well, as the title states, the monitor stand project is just about complete. We are both very happy with the results and feel like we made a great investment in purchasing these stands. We went from this: To this: The entire transformation was under a week, which included the delivery time for the monitor stands. We ordered them last Thursday and they were here by Monday and we were ready to start building then. My old stand was completely eliminated, freeing up valuable f...

Workshop Makeover #2: Workbench Design 1

03-19-2012 10:21 PM by pound | 2 comments »

I am starting to get the hang of SketchUp but something tells me that the pro version may be even better. Why spend that money on a computer program when I can get wordworking tools, right? Ok, so here is my first shot at designing a built in tablesaw and workbench. I made a stacked cabinet design because I know I can actually accomplish making a cabinet. I also would like to replace the drawers I currently have in my bench. I can’t even imagine how heavy 12 2×4x51’s a...

Wall hanging toolcabinet #1: A cabinet for my handtools

03-16-2012 12:09 AM by theSawdustSurfer | 0 comments »

At last spring! This year’s swedish winter was perhaps not the coldest or the most snowy, but it’s still just as great when spring arrives. For me it’s also about moving my projects and tools to my “Summer” workshop.As some of you know, i have two different workshops.In the winter I have my shop in a tiny basement here in my building in the city, and in the summer i move my shop into the countryside to our countryplace. In my Summer shop I have much more space...

Table Saw Cutoff Sled & Circular Saw Guide

03-10-2012 09:36 PM by gubawatts | 3 comments »

I’m making progress, slowly but surely, on the twin storage beds. To help cut some of the plywood parts to size, I took the time to make a couple of jigs, using some great ideas I’ve seen here on LJ. The first is the cutoff sled for table saw. I had one previously, but I was never happy with it’s accuracy, and I had to fiddle with the brass screws in the side of the runner to keep the fit adjusted to the miter track. So I started over, beginning with a piece of 3/4&#...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #632: New Project Just About Finished

03-04-2012 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

When I got up this morning, it was already getting light out. At first I thought I overslept, but in looking at the clock I realized that it was somewhere around the normal time I get up and it is just becoming light out earlier. Yes, spring is well on its way and soon winter will be behind us. Did we even have a winter? I hear of the fury of storms and tornadoes sweeping the US and I remember why spring is probably my least favorite season of the four. Growing up near Chicago, there w...

The Press:—————————————————————————————I built my vacuum bag press from scratch last year and I was itching to try it out. A project came along that was just perfect for it. Curved plywood. The pump is a pneumatic venturi that I got from joewoodworker dot com. It was the most expensive part of the build but not that ex...

Plywood Storage Cart #5: Finished

02-06-2012 04:19 AM by chopnhack | 5 comments »

I was able to figure out why the piece of plywood was not square to the other piece of the A-frame. It turned out that one of the angled wedges at the bottom was a little long and needed to be trimmed. The plywood was already in place and I didn’t feel like unclamping and lifting it off. I used my dozuki and trimmed a thin line between the wedge and ply and after fishing the sliver out from underneath I was able to pound the sheet down into place. I used a level and a framing square to ...

Plywood Storage Cart #4: Squaring up time

02-04-2012 04:14 AM by chopnhack | 0 comments »

Ok, despite this morning’s drama, I manned up (just kidding, I felt better, if I still felt like that nothing would have been accomplished today) and got something done. At this point some thoughts and opinions on squaring up the A frame and how would I go about measuring the angle to make sure its true 5 degrees from centerline on either side? What I was able to do today was rather surprising. I almost finished, but didn’t know how exactly to get things lined up, so I clamp...
