My new shop system

03-20-2008 06:04 AM by Sawdust2 | 14 comments »

Table saw system upgrade A few years ago I got a good deal on an Xacta fence for my Jet contractors saw. That meant I had to come up with a support system for the extension table. !I decided to build a system that would hold the saw, provide some storage and also hold my router. That way I could get rid of my router table. At the time my shop was quite a bit smaller than my current shop. So this is what I came up with.It was functional but it wasn’t pretty.This year I decided that I ...

Cheap Kitchen Table #3: Improved leg design

10-01-2011 11:26 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

You spoke and I listened. We made corner blocks for the legs so that they should be plenty strong enough. Here’s a picture with the corner blocks installed into the bottom and top horizontals. These were the most difficult and dangerous thing we’ve ever made in the workshop. They took dangerous cuts on the miter saw and table saw. We will never do them again and will make a jig next time to be safer. Here’s what the side verticals looks like next to the horizon...

Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... #3: Rails and Stiles.

08-19-2010 01:27 AM by degoose | 12 comments »

Having dressed all the timber to size… the next job is to make the frame..I use Cope and Stick construction.. also known as Frame and PanelFirst using a Mitre Express and Mitre 2000 gauge with stop attached… all the rails [horizontal parts] were cut to size …. this method ensures accuracy… the Stiles [ or the vertical parts of the frame…] are left over long… this means that a little extra protrudes past the rails… these are called ‘horns’ ...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #5: Drawers

03-06-2015 01:54 AM by johnstoneb | 3 comments »

Yesterday and today were relatively productive for the most part. I got the dovetails cut on the three drawers. I cut these with a PC 4200 series dovetail jig. The front is attached with halfblind dovetails. These are usually the easiest to setup and cut but for some reason I had a hard time setting things up. and when I cut them two came out tighter than I like two were right on and two were a little loose. I don’t know why nothing moved. The through dovetails on the rear of the...

Desk build #3: Nurse desk: Some glue-up

08-27-2009 07:31 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

Router Table & Unit #2: Frame for Router Box

10-30-2014 02:26 PM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

So I used 2×1 poplar to frame out where I will house the router.. I will be using 3/4 MDF .. That’s next I will need to custom cut the MDF to fit and I’m just praying that I put the frame pieces in the right place so support the MDF and that it also looks symmetrical as Dara’s where the drawers will be going on the sides!

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #3: Leg stretchers, assembly bolts and bottom shelf.

03-21-2015 05:15 PM by brianb6603 | 4 comments »

This part was very straight forward, The stretchers were assembled from 3 strips of 3/4” BB glued together with Biscuits to help keep everything aligned. The center strip is 1/2” longer to make a tendon. Next I made a router template to make the mortises in the legs. At that point it was just a matter of laying them out and cutting them. While I had the legs out I needed to make clearance slots for the 2 dog holes on each side of the left side leg. ...

Apartment Router Table / Table Saw #2: Insert, Rails, and Fence

02-13-2014 10:03 PM by JonDH | 0 comments »

We left off last time and I had a hole in my table with a blank insert, getting me back to a functional dining room table. Step 1: Install some T track. I originally thought I would just make a long fence and clamp it to the edge of the table. It would be a pain in the neck, but I didn’t think it would get heavy use. Instead I saw a lot of videos and commercial fixtures that use T track, and it looked amazing. I would be able to use hold-down clamps, using a fence would be easier. Ba...
