Too cold to spray finish and waiting on blades, so here is a quick blog on a technique to make matching curves for bent laminations. NOTE: The desired final thickness of your lamination is equal to the diameter of the bottom bearing trim bit you use in this method. Blanks for the jig. 4 pieces of 3/4” ply to make a 3” deep jig. Cut and faired 1/4” template is used to get initial curve on a piece of 3/4” ply. Flush trimmed curve is used as bearing reference...
So here it is. I am basing this project on one several other talented individuals have done. They include, but are not limited to, Zzzzdoc, Tedth66, and Spencer. I only have the rough outline right now but plan on cutting wood this week. I have the mobile base on 4” swiveling castors. I matched the drawer base to the same height as the original base minus 4 inches for the casters. I made the base 28×68.5 and recessed the cabinet one inch all around so once the drawer fron...
I’ve continued tinkering with my table saw stand/workstation. Since I moved the fence system all the way to the right, the ruler was no longer accurate. I purchased a new one and got that zeroed in without a too much effort. I also started an apothecary style entertainment center for our house. I knew pretty quickly that I was going to need a sled for cutting my panels to length. So I made the one in the second picture first with some scrap oak I had laying around and a 1/2” piece...

I hit it big for Christmas. My wife got me the Bosch 1617 router kit (fixed + plunge base) and a good quality bit assortment. I’m super happy and can’t wait to use this thing, although I have no projects in the que right now. So, I have a feeling that after this weekend all my scrap wood will have ogees, chamfers and roundovers. If anyone is in the market for scrap wood with random stuff routed into it, look no further. Why I have no projects pending is a bit of a tangent so...
I decided to make some last minute stocking fillers for family and friends, this year it was Cheese Boards, I bought some hardwood sheets from HomeCenter, unfortunately there was no description as to what wood was used to make up these sheets, but it had a nice grain.To make the process easier, I decided to make a another Spindle Sander which could be used on the Pillar Drill, or as is described in ‘The Family Handyman’, a drum sander. The idea being this is clamped on the ...
I recently inherited my grandpa’s vintage 10” craftsman table saw. It had a broken fence and was on a wobbly metal cart that had been pieced together. I have no idea honestly if he ever ripped anything more than 3-4” on it because of the fence. Anyways, the saw runs great and I want to put it to good use. Some of the problems presenting me were: 1) Saw will be in a garage shared with other stuff2) The stand and fence needed to be replaced3) My young kids play in the garag...
The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...
I finished building the kit router mill I purchased from Mark Sternberg (Mark55). I am so impressed with it’s versatility and ease of setup and use. It is trivial to cut long parallel slots in 3/4” Baltic birch, pieces for my workbench accessories, post #8543. There are more details in my personal blog I’m just at a loss for more words right now!DanK
