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...
I made a router sled to flatten a Farmhouse style dining table top I’m making. It’s a simple project that produced good results. Watch it here: https://youtu.be/ykNEqxTe23g
Here’s my version of a Table Saw Crosscut Sled. Thanks to Kiefer and Lynn for their videos/projects which provided the inspiration for my build. https://youtu.be/eGuMqDGexxM
This video shows my new bandsaw and also the sled I made for crosscuts and long cuts. View on YouTube
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...
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...
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...
Making decorations is fun. Woodworking, welding, and smithing are also fun. This time I combine them all and create a decorative sled. This is a very simple project that will get plenty of years use. Check the video out, leave comments, and make sure to like and subscribe! Click here for video. Also, does anyone know where the old embed code went to? I can no longer see it on YouTube to embed the video here.
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...
