Clamp Cart #1: Quick Frameup

10-27-2014 02:58 AM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

I keep hearing you can never have too many clamps. I expect that’s because I always misplace these or are left in a pile to be sorted out. I was watching several videos on YouTube on clamp storage. Steve Ramsey redid his storage putting clamp racks behind a door. No such luck in my shop. Someone had made the “ultimate” clamp and wood storage cart, however, a 30” x 96” cart is out of the question also. However, several of the ideas from that build and a ...

Lee and Shelley's Wet Bar #3: Phase II Face frame Assembly

03-31-2014 12:35 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

With the boards milled and cut to length, it was time to assemble the face frames. I used a Kreg pocket hole jig to drill the holes for the frames. Not just any jig but my modified jig. It works great! I have to stay focused and keep my fingers out of the way. :-) Then I laid out the pieces and clamped them to my work bench/assembly table. A few screws later and VOILA! a completed frame. Rinse, repeat three more times, and the four frames are ready to go. Next phase, rais...

Modifying the Kreg Pocket Hole Jig #1: New Life for the Pocket Hole Jig

11-14-2013 04:48 AM by MT_Stringer | 1 comment »

Some of you have probably seen my Pocket Hole jig set up (pics shown below). It works great. I have drilled hundreds of pocket holes with it. But, therein lies a problem. When I am drilling holes in panels such as plywood cabinet members, I have difficulty reaching around or over the panel to operate the clamp. In fact, on more than one occasion, I have scraped my arm. That is not good for a guy with thin blood. So, in the words of Tim, The Tool Man Taylor “So I rewired it!” :-) I know ...

Sister's Remodel #2: Pantry 2

11-01-2013 08:10 PM by Nate Meadows | 14 comments »

Picking up were I left off… With the shelf tops cut, I could then place them on the ribbing I had put in. I chose to use the Kreg Micro Jig as my method of attachment. It provide the most amount of screw length with the lest amount of strength lose. Before I assembled the ribbing I had to drill all the pocket holes; it was messy but fun. I applied Titebond III on all the ribs before laying the self down, then secured the self from underneath every 6 inches or so with a...
