Home-Grown Multi-Router #1: In the begin, there was design

12-28-2010 12:03 AM by Jim | 9 comments »

I’ve really been wanting a JDS Multi-Router since I used one while taking a class with David Marks (at William Ng’s school in Anaheim). We used the JDS to make loose M&T joints for our coffee table project and it works REALLY nicely. However, the price tag for a home shop is WAY outside my spending limits (starts at $2,600). So, I’ve made the decision to try and build my own version. I’ve looked all over the web and found a few examples of other brave adventure...

Wood on wheels

12-21-2010 03:16 PM by Ilija | 3 comments »

This is a bike I’m making for my daughter, it still lacks the finishing touches, like final paint coat, and the lacquer. The seat and the wheels we bought, everything else is water resistant plywood, screws and birch wood. The body of the bike can be flipped up side down to achieve greater seat height. Following more pictures…

Progressing Forward

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by matt garcia | 7 comments »

Well it finally wamed up enough around here to do some glue ups. I got my feet made and glued up, and attached them to the base. Then I routed the edge of the base, and made the transition moulding and glued that. Now a mother cold front has come through, and it looks like it might freeze tonight!! Good thing I got busy in the shop yesterday. I also went to Clark’s for some secondary lumber. It must have been my lucky day Saturday!! When I arrived at Clark’s, first thing ...

Barn Board Cupboard

12-10-2010 06:13 PM by ~Julie~ | 7 comments »

I’ve made a few things with barn board, and wanted to try something different so I designed a small cupboard. I thought the cupboard would work out best if it was the width of the boards, which is 5 1/2” and with large box joints on the top. So the two sides and the top are box-jointed (also called finger-jointed) on the table saw. They will look great for this rustic style, especially when large and chunky. The length of each side will be 23” and since my pieces h...

The Re-designed Mortise Pal #1: Evolution to Excellence

12-05-2010 11:14 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

If you didn’t have to improve a great product would you bother? Would your improvements be incremental or would you really go for it? This is a blog not just about the simplicity and functionality of this jig, but also the progression of the inventor’s ideas and how they are incorporated into the latest model. For those not familiar with this tool, it is a router jig that facilitates perfectly sized and matched mortises for fixed or loose tenon joinery. It was won many awar...

How to Make Picture Frames with Wood Inlay

12-02-2010 11:27 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

The Problem…If you want quality wood inlay …where will you get it? What designs will you get? How much will you pay for it?The Solution…We use our woodworking skills and make our own wood inlay in the shop. (We will make our own picture frame moulding too!) As you seen in previous postings we have been busy creating bandings of shop made wood inlay. There are a variety of wood inlay designs now available for our use at this time. So now we are in the process of creating p...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #12: The saw has a new home / I hate jigsaws / Why I'm not an electrician...

11-30-2010 08:00 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 13 comments »

Well guys, after spending the days before and after Thanksgiving sick with a stomach bug, I decided I was going to get something done before going back to work Monday. So, after getting my strength back, I decided to go out to the shop and put the saw base together. Last weekend a buddy of mine came over to play the part of outfeed table and we progressed to get the pieces cut for the base of the saw. All in all, it’s a pretty simple box with a hole cut in the top so that sawdust can...

The Basement #7: New Incra Router Table

11-27-2010 12:09 AM by JL7 | 5 comments »

I finally got the materials together to build a decent router table. I have had the Incra Ultra Jig around for awhile now, and have used it on some of my previous router tables, but my homemade tops were always off just a little. Always seem to have trouble getting the router plates to sit just right in the opening, etc. This time I bit the bullet and bought Woodpeckers 27×43 offset table along with the PRL V2 lift (very sweet!). I acquired the extruded aluminum pieces from some di...

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...
