Dave's Workshop #17: Handy Mini Multi-Miter Sled

07-24-2016 08:55 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

This is one of those jigs I’ve thought about for a while and finally decided to just do it. It’s down and dirty, focused very much on function and not at all on prettiness. Originally I planned to make a dedicated 90 degree miter gauge since the one for my saw is pretty unreliable. It works, but—well, you know. After I got the 90 degree part finished it occurred to me to try some added functionality. On the board behind the fence I added two fences, one at 45 de...

Table Saw Crosscut sleds revisted: a small improvement.

06-27-2016 01:11 AM by trophyjoe | 0 comments »

So today, I needed to square a piece of plywood. I reached for my trusty TS panel-squaing jig, a la woodgears.ca, but the wood bar was sloppy in the miter slot. Don’t ask why—I didn’t make it that way. To make matters worse, the bar was set into a groove in the jig, so making another bar was not going to help. What to do? I suppose I could have made another complete jig, but didn’t feel like it. Instead, I tried to create a shop-built adjustable bar.... HereR...

Tilt-Out Wastebasket Cabinet #1: Stock Prep

04-20-2016 05:47 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

I ended up with a lot of footage, so I am going to split the video up as needed to the time manageable. In this video, I start my new project which is a tilt-out wastebasket cabinet. As usual, I start out with rough lumber, so much of this first video is about preparing the stock. Need to Joint a board that is wider than your jointer? I cover that in this video as well. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out! View on YouTube Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thomaslightleFaceb...

Cutting Tenons with a Router Table Sled [w/bonus DIY dust collection]

06-29-2015 01:42 AM by Greg Guarino | 1 comment »

I don’t have a table saw, nor do I have the skills or tools to cut tenons with a hand saw. So I came up with this idea:... a sled that moves the work over a 3/4” router bit. It’s got a movable stop to set the length of the tenon. It works decently, although I have found that since I need to make several passes, each pass – somehow – ends up the tiniest bit different in depth than the others. The difference is truly tiny, just enough to see the “seamR...

Crosscut Sled

05-25-2015 08:12 PM by Ken Dowswell | 2 comments »

I have a 10” Rockwell Table Saw, which I bought many years ago, had it in storage when I lived overseas and finally this spring being semi rerired, put it back in service. I need a Crosscut Sled. Did a lot ot on-line research, found what I like and made it to suit my saw and me. The saws main table is 24” wide and 22” deep, so I duplicated it using 1/2” birch plywood. Runners are maple, trimmed to fit and glued to the bottom of the plywood. Fence material is...

Concept Ideas using SketchUp #2: Adjustable Sled

12-03-2014 09:09 PM by George_SA | 0 comments »

My second blog in this series is an adjustable sled. In a perfect world a sled would stay spot on accurate for ever. In the real world however things go wrong for various reasons. To overcome this problem I thought about a sled with a fence that could be adjusted when it goes out of square for whatever reason. Then I saw Dave's Super accurate crosscut sled here on LJ. This was also the inspiration for the SketchUp model which can be downloaded over here The other reason is that I found tha...
