Routed Sign Making #1: Routed 'Sign Making Class'

858 days ago by 3DBMe | 13 comments »

We’re going to use a Dremel router to make a sign with recessed lettering. I suggest barnwood because of the contrast between the weathered surface texture and ‘fresh cut’ letters. I also have enhanced the letters by burning (pyrography) the edges of the letters for increased readability. Of course you can scale up to larger routers if you chose. Stock: Barnwood 2”x10”x24” Suggested material and dimensions Safety: Goggles, F...

Shop Stool

174 days ago by kaerlighedsbamsen | 9 comments »

For my workbench i needed a tall stool for more accurate work and just a place to rest. This is a descripition on how i made this project. Searching LJ i found these two fine projects:- Having a fascination with all-things-Japanense (having both worked in a sushi restaurant and done karate for several years) these Singer-songrwriters chairs by Junji impressed me.- This post on shop stools by shipwright described a interesting method for dying oak black with steel wool dissolved in wineg...

Woodworking Bench #4: A Perfectly Flat Top

1619 days ago by DocK16 | 14 comments »

Moving along with the woodworking bench. The previous blog showed the final glue up of the laminated top. even planing the sections before gluing didn’t lead to a perfectly flat top. So that leads to the 64 million dollar question, how do we get it flat. Since I don’t have 40 inch wide planer or sander I guess we’ll have to look at other options. One method is to cross plane it with a fore plane or jointer plane (a very long bench plane). As I don’t have a bench...

Router Table #1: Design ideas, need some feedback

1886 days ago by PurpLev | 43 comments »

OK, so yeah – another blog about a router table, but since I’m going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I’ve had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2 1/4hp). It had the misfurtune of being on the floor when my basement was flooded a couple of years ago, so that top was ruined. I since have been planning to replace it with a shop-built version, and make a full enclosed ...

Instructions For Making A Wine Bottle Balancer.

897 days ago by Trev_Batstone | 1 comment »

Here are the instructions for making my style of the wine bottle balancer: 1. Cut pieces to size on the table saw: 3”x12” (3/4” stock). 2. Drill angle hole at 45 degrees, 3” from one end on the drill press with a 1 3/8” forstner bit. 3. Cut rounded top on band saw, jig saw, or scroll saw. 4. Round over edges on both sides of the board with a round-over bit on router table (this is optional, but it just makes for a more decorative look and...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #1: Intro

1248 days ago by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

To my amazement there has been a lot of inquiries into how I make my wine cork displays. These questions inspired me to create a series of blog/tutorials to help explain my process. They will probably go into far more detail than most of you “master woodworkers” care to see, but I’m hoping it will help those new to woodworking. I remember how valuable some of the more detailed tutorials where to me when I first started, and still are for that matter. The design is one ...

How I got rid of the dust collection hose sticking out the rear of the router fence .

1518 days ago by tedth66 | 9 comments »

Recently I built and I’m now painting my SawStop and Router Cabinet. Some LJs asked about how I was able to avoid having a hose jet out from the back of my router fence to control the dust above the table here are some pictures of how I directed the dust from the top of the table down into the rear of my two-chamber router box and then out the back of my cabinet. I hope these pictures show you my idea around this. I hope this helps to those who wanted to know. Here’s a link ...

Router Box Joints using a Template Bearing Guide

1075 days ago by Dave Owen | 6 comments »

The first time I ever saw a box joint jig guided by a template bearing was six or seven years ago when a friend showed one as a club demo. His jig was a simple plywood sled with a fence, a wooden bar for spacing the fingers, and a slot through the base that fit a template bearing guide. If I remember correctly, his made joints with 3/8” fingers. Shortly after his demo, I made the smaller jig shown below for 1/8” ‘fingers on small drawers. Here’s a photo of a jewelry ...

Fold Down Outfeed Table

1651 days ago by davidroberts | 9 comments »

I built this fold down outfeed talbe about two years ago and it still going strong. I give the design credit to Jim Becker at http://sawsndust.com/p-outfeed.htm He provides a plan sheet on his website. I did modify his design a bit to suite my needs. This is what I had in mind when I started to think about the project. I just happened upon Jim’s site, and I’m glad I did. He attached the OFT using 45 degree supports attached to the back of his TS, to eliminate those pesk...
