Getting my tools ready #12: Small steps forward

07-06-2013 12:53 AM by DocSavage45 | 24 comments »

Not a whole lot to show for progrees since the last posting, but I have two functional chores completed toward my goal. When I constructed my Thein chip separator I had a difficult time, and therefore extended time in cutting the plywood circles. Used my Makita Saber Saw, and then figured out/tuned up my Band Saw with help from some knowledgeable Lumberjocks. My thanks ( again!) for the guidance. Realized I could cur faster with a circle cutter, and used my sheet metal circle cutter. A...

Door Hinge Jig improvement

12-01-2012 06:26 PM by bohnsai | 4 comments »

I have one of the Milescraft hinge mortising jigs for the router.It works OK (especially since the NICE one are PRICEY!!!!) however, I absolutely hated the fact that it left mounting holes in the door.Also, when using it to retrofit new doors into existing doors, it was very hard to line up the jig on the new door so the hinge mortises perfectly matched the existing door. My solution was to mount a strip of HDPE and use a couple of Edge clamps to keep it in place on the door. Also, after f...

Super Glide Recycled Roubo Workbench #1: Prepping the lumber

05-11-2012 03:47 AM by WheelsAF | 8 comments »

Like many weekend woodworkers I made due for years with half-baked workbenches. A few years back I saw the Roubo design and knew I would build it one day. That day has come. I am a retired AF officer (well…retired from the AF not from working :)) who has decided to get serious about my hobby. The furniture we have been dragging around the country and world could really use replacing. So I need a serious bench to help. A little explanation of my title: I call it a “Super Gl...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #19: "Raise your panel!" Who knew you could do THAT with a hand plane + another contest!

04-15-2012 11:28 PM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

I don’t know why anyone would want to skin a cat, but I hear there is more than one way to do it. The same is true with raised panels, you know, the ones we use on all our fancy cabinet doors… So this week Stumpy tries to make one with nothing but a Stanley #4 hand plane… ...then he decides to make a machine to do it for him! Before all is said an done we have a new jig that does far more than it was originally intended to, and Stumpy is telling us the next best thing ...

Circle router jig BLOG

02-23-2012 02:22 PM by mafe | 11 comments »

Circle router jigMy version. This is a jig I have seen on the web and here on LJ in several versions, I cooked up my version and added a cheap curtain aluminum T-track so I always can extend to any length simply by buying a longer rod.(I think originally the design comes from a woodworking magazine). Since I had the photos and could see the interest on the post I made this mini blog showing more details for those who want to make one. The layout is a plywood (plywood for concrete for...

Walnut Slab Coffee Table #1: Flattening slab with router sled

01-01-2012 07:14 PM by Lumber2Sawdust | 5 comments »

I started a post about a wood gloat about a month ago. I found some nice walnut slabs at a sawmill for some projects. The first one up is a coffee table. I thought I would start a blog about the process of preparing the slab. I may follow this with more about adding a base to the table as it progresses. I’ve done a fair number of projects in the past, but nothing involving a big slab like this. I have been excited about getting this project started, but Christmas was approaching...

Routing Circles #1: Routing inlays

05-13-2011 03:14 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 32 comments »

Hi all; Recently I needed to cut some wenge veneer to inlay into a Demilune table. The table is part of a private veneer course I’m teaching, and will be included in either an e-book, or a printed book. The fellow is writting it as I’m teaching, taking pictures as we go. One of the projects in the book has an wenge inlay. If you’ve ever worked with wenge, you know it’s a bit of a nasty wood to work with. Cutting it with a knife is difficult, as the wood tends to ...
