Here is how I made my Intersected cutting board posted here. There seems to be a lot of interest in this board so here is a blog on how I made it. First of all here’s what I planned on making. It’s the top one. After I got both the circles intersected I liked how it looked with the rounded corners so I just added in the “wedge shapes”at the top and bottom and called it done. I think that it makes it very distinctive also. As one person guessed I ...
Coming down the home straight with these doors. Here is a quick shot of the set up for the slot cutting on the old router table.. Finished the rebates on the panels… back 4 mm and the front 7 mm Using the Incra Fence and the Woodpecker Unilift made it easy to switch from one height to another … Moved the blade on the TS to 45 degrees and positioned the fence for the bevel cuts on the front of the panels.. A Wixey Digital Ange Guide is very useful here.. A...

With the birth of my first child last year, I had an overwhelming urge to start building things that last. I picked up a ton of shop experience in college where I was the “master” student carpenter for the theater department. “Master” in this case meaning I was the least likely to hurt myself using any of the tools. But building for a theater means lots of butt joints and staples/screws instead of actual joinery, and it meant I touched something other than plywood a...
This weekend I decided to work on my workbench a bit so I put this project to the side for a while. While I was out working I took a really close look at the laminate and noticed that it is starting to debond at the edges! I have no idea why this is happening or if it will stop. I put the top on a flat surface and piled up as much weight as I coudl find on top to try to press the laminate down. The final cure time on the contact cement is supposed to be 7 days and I made the top 7 days ag...
My Router Cabinet Upgrade #2: Phase 1 - beefing up the bottom partitiong and enclosing the sides with plywood
Beautiful weather outside and after a hearty breakfast I went out to work on the router cabinet. There was one other aspect of this project that I hadn’t mentioned before – try to use up as much of the wood that I have laying about the shop before having to go and buy any more. And off we go. Below is a shot of the exploded view of this plan. I want to place 2×6 on the bottoms to support the bottom shelf as I plan to put heavy things there (routers, sanders, blah bl...
Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options In the Weekend Wall Shelf episode, I showed you how to use a parallel jig to create dados. But the jig was originally created for making coves at the tablesaw. So here’s a special jig made specifically for the purpose of creating dados with your router. The best part is, you can get exact-width dados EVERY TIME! This jig was developed and demonstrated in the current Guild Build as part of the Wall-Hanging Cabi...
