I found this cool video of a dude making some neat stuff using his water mill powered woodshop. I thought the lumberjocks crowd might like it. I have no connection to the film in any way. A random find.folkstreams film 187
I have a few projects coming up that I need to make mitered corners for, like picture frames and such. I have not had much luck in the past with my miter saw. I guess the positive stops at 45 degrees are not perfect or something because I have aligned everything on it. I have been wanting to make a miter sled for quite some time now so I decided to just do it using whatever I have on hand. I will definitely remake this later on when I can afford proper materials, but at least I have som...
A while back, I posted my sliding crosscut sled, but then I later built another sled that slid over both sides of the blade. The original sled was just to the left of the blade and left a cutoff piece to dance around and connect with the blade a few times. I found the perfect use for the old one sided sled at the band saw. I had to make a new runner, but the old one popped off easy enough. I cut it down to 12” wide and moved the end clamp closer to the left so it would not be off bal...
The new sled is almost done and I am much happier with it. As you can see it’s a basic sled. No Schmancy bits but it runs better in the table, has a DIY T-Track and a blade box so, it’s a upgrade. The back fence is 2 pieces of 1×6 laminated together with glue and screws. I cut a slot in this 5/8” wide and 1/4” deep then laminated a piece of cheap 14” ply over it and cut a 1/4” slot in that to make the t-track. It’s a bit crooked at one ...
I had a cut-off sled, but I wasn’t happy with it. it didn’t slide well at all, I wanted a taller rear fence, and I wanted to try to make some t-track to go on it. so, today, I took apart my old one and started planning the new sled. I was able to remove the old runners without breaking them, which is good, and also without ripping apart the decent plywood that was the base, also good. I was able to determine that the left side of the sled was where the poor sliding problem was a...
I had a miter sled, but I didn’t really like it. It was heavy and bulky and, to be honest, not really that well made. So, since I had a few pieces leftover from trimming down the reclaimed counter top for my eventual router table, I decided to make a new one! This time I went in knowing a bit more about what I wanted and how I wanted to make it. The base is construction-grade 1/2” ply. Not the best but it’s what I had. the miter guide / fence pieces are leftover trim from...
Kris Williams of Rocky Blue Woodworks shows us how to cut perfect circles on a band saw including how to make the sled need to do it!
Well it has been a anxious and emotional week for me and not much got done on the table but such is life.This week I played around of and on with some yellow glue and some 1/8” walnut veneer ,I rolled on glue on both surfaces (three different types seen in the pic ) and let the samples dry until clear and layed it on the plywood , put a hot iron on the veneer and heated the glue until it bonded and followed with a piece of wood to rub it flat .The result was a nice strong bond and tryin...
Hi gang, long time no post… I’ve been in and out of the shop lately, this week I’ve been working on another batch of cutting boards. THe last time I made boards back at the end of August, I found that on some of my boards, my cross cut sled was building in an uneven cut (out of square) when I was trimming for the flip/glue stage of the boards. My old sled was built about 8 years ago, and I”m sure the fence can be adjusted. I didn’t glue it down, just screwe...
I was cross-cutting the blanks for my latest set of cutting boards when I noticed that my cuts weren’t square. Not a big deal in this case, as I’m only going to be planing them down to thickness anyway, but in the long run it means that a Lot of projects have been ‘just a tad’ off, probably for awhile now. that shows the ‘variation’ here’s my venerable sled, just something that i threw together awhile back: it is about as simple as yo...
