CLICK FOR LARGE FORMAT I am making a video series showing the Ezee-Feed Infeed and Outfeed Tables designed by Master Woodworker Lee Jesberger from Ezee-Feed Manufacturing. I just got the outfeed table assembled and securely mounted on my table saw. Not one to wait around, I decided to shoot a small preview video which was originally posted on my website & blog. The Ezee-Feed system is going to make cutting large panels and sheet goods a breeze! This is the definitely the safety a...
Alright, I’m ready to do some real woodwork now. I finally finished my last two table saw jigs. This time I made a miter sled and a key slot jig (spline jig?). I will make more jigs/sleds as I need them, but I think that the three I’ve made recently should be a good start with my new TS. So, heres a couple of pictures, and as always comments and suggestions are welcome (I came here to learn).
I didn’t make any headway on my cabinet today, but did make progress on my shop equipment. This morning, a friend and I rented a U-haul trailer and picked up some new woodworking machinery. He purchased a Powermatic 15” planer/molder and a Jet free-standing buffer. I purchased a Jet 10” Left Tilt Cabinet saw. I also got a great deal on some Jet clamps. As everyone here knows, you can never have too many clamps. After scratching our heads a bit, we were able to unload b...
Well, if you all have been following my blogs, you’d know that I recently purchased a new table saw. Being that this is my first table saw, I want to ensure that I am using it as efficiently and as safely as possible. So after doing a good bit of research I decided to make a few jigs to improve my accuracy with my new saw. The first jig I made today is the crosscut sled. Shortly I will be making a miter sled and a jig for cutting key slots on boxes. So without further adieu, here i...
I would have waited until I made more progress until posting this next one, but since I have been stuck in bed with the flue for three days (and I am good for nothin’ in the shop) I may as well post what I’ve got. The following was done before I got sick. I am keeping the joinery as simple as possible on this project. I want it to look nice but it mostly needs to be functional. So I used simple grooved “style and rails” for the doors and drawer fronts, with more of ...
Friends With Benefits… OK guys it’s not what you think. But the benefit here are specs for the entry table that I made. One of the LJ brothers asked if he could build the entry table as a gift and I thought I would share it with everyone. I am keeping his identity secret lest I give him away to someone that he would be intending to surprise. In The Rough… These are not professionally drawn plans, but they will do. This is a simple project and all the specs are t...
So far so good. I ran into a couple hickups here and there but im still on target. About now I am wishing I had a drum sander, Jointer and a drill press. Please Santa come soon! These things probably would have made this venture much easier, but with a lil elbow grease and some buckets of sweat I have been able to get most of the hard work done. On to the highlights… Im still sanding, yeah, yeah, yeah….. Got the table base built up and doing a dry fit on the top. I bought th...
Well, I finally did it. I have been scrimping and saving for a table saw for some time now. After cutting the lid off of my trinket box with my friends cheap craftsman portable table saw, I realized that I really needed to invest in a nice one. So, here is what I got: I’m not sure if it’ll make me a better woodworker, but it sure can’t hurt! :-) Every Ridgid product I’ve purchase has been outstanding so far, and with the Lifetime Limited, I just don’...
Well so far so good. I finally got my new table saw (thanks honey!) and im pretty much in love with it. lol. So here we go on the butcher block table. Im looking for about a 24×18X4 top that will stand about 34” high. Lets get to it shall we…..Oh wait, first things first. Pic of the saw Ok, back to the butcher block table. I bought about 25bf of maple (ouch) and had em rip it for me right quick to save me some time. (cost about 25 bucks) no biggy, but now im thinking I...
I recently built a router table and when I was taking measurements around the shop to determine how tall to make it I realized something about my shop: my table saw is on blocks, my workbench is on blocks, my radial arm saw table is jacked up to about chest hight on the highest adjustment of an extendable stand… Seems that without ever thinking about it I made all my surfaces taller than average. But here’s the thing: I’m only 5’8”. I am not really very tall. ...
