Mitre guage slot / Router table insert size

11-08-2010 06:17 AM by nobuckle | 1 comment »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on adding a router table to my tablesaw. Things have been coming along fairly well. I’ve been able to receive alot of wonder help from various LJ subscribers for which I am very thankful. I now have some other decisions to make and I need your help. Decision 1. What size should I make the router insert plate? Most I’ve seen are about 9” x 12”. One author said to make the insert plate as small as possible without m...

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!

Stupidity or How to Destroy a Dado Max in Easy Stroke

01-26-2011 06:04 AM by bigfish_95008 | 3 comments »

Sunday I had the Dado Max out to cut some dados in a box that the scroll saw will sit on – the scroll saw stand is just to tall. I set up the first dado and it cut beautifully and then disaster struck, as Lowell Thomas would say, instead of turning the router off and unplunging the previously plunged router I lifted it out of the fixture, running at 25000 rpms and about an 1.5” of bit exposed – almost. The bit caught on the edge of the fixture lifting it off the clamp and st...

Building Jewelry Boxes with EZInlays #2: First Cuts for RoseBud

04-30-2013 05:30 AM by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

Started to build the RoseBud inlay that will go on the lid of the Bubinga and Purple Heart jewelry box. For this inlay I am using maple, yellow heart, rosewood, and kauri. Tomorrow I am going to do some sand shading to give the inlay a 3D effect. Should be pretty cool… P.S. The only down side to sand shading is the wood can sometimes stink and yellow heart is one of the worst!!! It is almost as bad as zebra wood… not quite but almost!!! Now that I’m finished with...

CHECK OUT THIS FIXTURE FOR ANGLES

02-29-2012 01:55 PM by Metrotek | 4 comments »

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm

New to the hobby, a look inside the beginners mind. #1: the first few tools in the shop

01-05-2008 11:58 PM by Jason Wheeler | 6 comments »

I have to say setting up a wood shop is just as much work and cash, if not more, then setting up a steel shop. Luckily a few of the steel tools are useful and will come in handy to the wood shop. I have also a few tools from a set of cedar drafting drawers I built oh, 5 years back. It was a one time thing and at the time living in an apartment, dust was every where. All I really had was a Dewalt biscuit joiner and a random orbital sander, that was it. A pic of the cedar drawers, mmmm they ...

Necklace Box #1: The first couple months

01-28-2011 06:15 PM by superstretch | 3 comments »

In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...

Part 2 - The Bed is Finished #1: Some early pictures

03-30-2010 05:59 AM by davidroberts | 3 comments »

The title is a little misleading. The bed is actually refinished. This was a project 2 years in the making. A neighbor grew tired of her grandmothers bed set sitting on her back porch and offered it to me two summers ago. Her idea was I would refinish it for my then 13 year old daughter. It was made sometime before 1936 and is a nice old piece, well made and in need of some TLC. I jumped at the chance to hone my finishing/refinishing skills, since I don’t have any to speak of. Wh...
