DIY Table Saw Fence #1: Table Saw Fence

12-10-2007 07:21 AM by Hutch | 243 comments »

This is my old tablesaw fence. It is a little hard to see from the photo, but I cracked it trying to “micro-adjust” it. So I started to look for an aftermarket fence, of which there are some really nice ones out there. I just didn’t want to spend quite as much as they were asking because I have a previously owned Central Machinery tablesaw. I also was curious to see if I could come up with my own fence. I was worried about two things with most diy fence systems that...

starting my kitchen cabinets

08-26-2009 09:29 PM by woodchic | 78 comments »

Hi everybody…....My husband finally got the floor finished…...he did a fantastic job I might add and now…..I finally sucked up enough courage to get started on my kitchen cabinets. The kitchen and dining area is 14 ft wide x 24.6 ft long. My cabinets are made of plywood and my face frames and doors are made out of hickory. I have never worked on a set of kitchen cabinets before, so I am pretty much learning this on my own. I have a friend on here that gives me advice whe...

The EZ mitre technique

07-26-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 76 comments »

Hello all. Well I seem to have whet the appetite a bit so here goes for a ‘novel’ technique for making mitred boxes. Its a bit like making a box out of paper, like they showed you at school, using a ‘net’. Only in 3D, with wood and a tablesaw (not sissors). Well first comes the board Its made from alternating strips of Maple and Rosewood of varying thickness. I won’t bore you with the details on how to make it suffice to say that all the corners must b...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Many of you know about the 1987 Delta Unisaw that I bought earlier this week and many also know about what I wish to do with it.The machine is in excellent condition, the paint is immaculate and and there is only a little surface rust on the table but it is 25 years old and it does not do everything I want to do in the present condition.For you who are not aware of my plan, here is what I desire to accomplish with this saw: : General detail inspection and cleaning. : Some dis-assembly ...

Work(shop) in Progress #8: New Table Saw: Low Profile Riving Knife for Ridgid R4511

04-13-2009 03:51 AM by PurpLev | 53 comments »

So among the few shotcuts that were made by providing the R4511 at the market price was the fact that it only came with a splitter+integrated blade guard but no additional low profile riving knives (for non through cuts). for the price this saw comes at – one can’t complain, and the fact is- it does have a riving knife mount system which is a good base to start with. solution: homemade riving knife made out of 1/8” plate of 6063 aluminum: EDIT: If I’d do this again,...

Work(shop) in Progress #6: New Table Saw : Unpacking and Assembly of Ridgid R4511

03-22-2009 05:01 AM by PurpLev | 50 comments »

So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...

Furniture Making Tutorials #6: A Case for Rabbets

10-02-2014 03:58 PM by BigRedKnothead | 44 comments »

There’s always more than one way to go about any joint. I thought I’d share my preferred method for fixed shelves and drawer dividers in casework. I’m sure you can rollover some of these ideas into solid wood casework, but I’m speaking primarily to the times we might be using cabinet grade plywoods. I should also note that routers and their partnering jigs are very effective for dados, I just like using a dado stack in the tablesaw when I can. Mostly because of fami...
