03-29-2012 05:51 PM by AJswoodshop | 2 comments »

Hey guys before I get to the router blog I want to thank you guys for helping me out so much Ive steped up a level beacause of lumber jocks. Thanks too all. If you checked out my dovetail blog I got the porter cable 4212 dovetail jig. The bit that comes with it dosent fit my router. So I need a router with a 1 and a half chuck. I would like a plunge router but I wouldnt mind a fixed base. AJ

Wall hanging toolcabinet #3: The doors

03-29-2012 12:16 PM by Henrik Oscarsson | 1 comment »

Hi LJ´s I finally got the time to work with the doors to my cabinet. My first idea was to make panel doors but I do want the surface on the inside of the doors to be as clean as possible, without joints. i also want to use the full thickness of the plywood, 18 mm, to be able to hang tools on the inside. I decided to make a compromise, the look of panel doors on the outside and the sturdiness of using a clean plywood surface on the inside. to be continued … Thank you...

Modern Sawboard #1: Brainstorming for ideas...

03-24-2012 04:36 AM by chopnhack | 6 comments »

Well the sawboard is a pretty simple jig, but man is it invaluable! The other day I needed to rip long taper cuts on a 2×6 and it was just the tool. I have been thinking about incorporating some holding clamps to the base to make it quicker to set up and use. This is what I came up with as my first run at design. I am thinking this would be ideal for breaking down plywood. The overall length is longer than 8’ so the design is two ply to allow for overlap. One side has a piece of ...

Prayer Kneeler #1: Starting to take shape

03-20-2012 05:17 PM by Trabiman | 2 comments »

A friend of mine, who took a day from work and drove 6hrs round trip, ran a new 100 AMP panel from the house to my woodshop. When I tried to give him money, he refused and asked only that I make him something. I said sure thing… He asked me to build a prayer kneeler for his house. He only had one requirement, which was that it be made out of scrap that I had on hand in the shop. After looking at many sites and other postings of those who make kneelers I have finally have a start.

Wall hanging toolcabinet #2: Building a tool chest

03-17-2012 09:23 PM by Henrik Oscarsson | 0 comments »

Here is a quick update on the tool chest project , “Live” from the shop.—As you can see below, I’ve been inspired a lot by the tool chest Marc Spagnuolo aka “The woodwhisperer” did last summer .Although i have Simplified it a bit.I hope he doesn’t mind that. I will, as he did, use mortise and tenons for the joinery.— I cut all the pieces to the chest and laminated the bottom pieces  to double the thickness, I did the same with the top. I a...

Mobile Workstation #2: Let's do the twist!

03-16-2012 11:44 PM by chopnhack | 1 comment »

Ok, so it’s much more fun to dance than to fix…. Apparently welding a frame should not be undertaken without proper support, or ahh… more experience. The frame had a twist to it across the 59.5” length! I cleared a section of the shop floor (miracle) got out my door installation level and found a fairly level area. I then proceeded to use some shims to adjust the floor until the it was perfectly level. Gotta give credit to the guys that screeded the floor some 50 y...

Baltic birch plywood tearout #1: In a dovetail jig

03-12-2012 11:51 PM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

Not too long ago I bought a sheet of baltic birch plywood for a armoir project for my daughter (pics to be posted at a later time). I was going to use the plywood for the drawer parts because it was being hailed as splinter free when using it in a dovetail jig. NOT I tried using backer boards in the front and back and still got tearout. If the ends didn’t tear out then the last layer of the ply de-laminated. This made fitting them and glue ups a pain in the ass. I know I coul...

Sweet Sweet Digital Accuracy

03-11-2012 06:56 AM by Brad | 2 comments »

Last month as a condolence prize for turning 30 years old I received from my in-laws a few items from my Amazon “woodworking” wishlist. I’ll admit i sorta milked this whole turning 30 thing because my friends and family really did some damage to my woodworking wish list (sadly no sawstop). So today I’m reviewing the Wixey Mini Digital Height Gauge. These can be found at your local Rockler right now on sale for $20 so not a huge investment. Thanks for the battery Wi...
