I guess I’m just not going to find the time to write posts, so how about I share a video I posted on my “MrToolHunter” Youtube Channel. In this video I share my most-used lay-out tool, the IncraGauge, and take a quick look at Woodcraft’s new WoodRiver Offset Gauge.http://youtu.be/vdxetoT3kVM
Like many of us I have looked at all of those pictures of other people’s roubo workbenches with a jealous eye for quite some time. The ones built with Benchcrafted hardware just seemed to be top notch in quality, and they look like woodworker candy. I’ve had this build on my to-do list since 2011 because I don’t have a woodworking bench with woodworking vises or anything to hold my work down. I’m forced to use my old Unisaw as a bench and the best I can do is use a cla...

Well it arrive just like they said it would. Unfortunately, I came early from work under the weather so install and/or even looking at it will have to wait. Purchased from Tools-Plus, $195.00 including shipping and it is the T3 updated syste. I have seen them advertised for a lot more. I will try to take pictures along the way (I only have a cell phone) fir pictures. This is tthe first upgrade to my Craftsman 21833 TS. If anyone has already done thus and would like to share the...
Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly
ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...
Since I don’t have a dedicated finishing room, in which I can control air flow and quality, I always run into an issue when finishing a project. When I apply finish, I can’t do anything else in the shop until I’m done the finishing process, since I’d create way too much dust. Even if I abstain from other work, there’s always dust that creeps into the finish. The solution is a dust free commercial finishing booth…but I’m not about to buy one. I d...
I started by using 1/2” birch veneer ply to build the sides. I cut three 1/2” dados along each side 1/4” deep for the shelves and base and the cut the shelves to measure and glued the all in place. The top I lapped over 1/2” on each side and 1” to the front to accommodate the door and drawer fronts.
I have sleep apnea and currently just use a simple stand for my CPAP machine. I thought is would be wise to build a nightstand to put it in to help reduce the noise of the pump hum to help give my wife a good nights sleep as well so I designed a nightstand to contain my CPAP machine in a felt lined area to make it virtually sound proof as well as a drawer to contain all the spares and bits and bobs. Have a look.
First I work on making the “pillars” for the architectural details in the front of the hutch. Then I carve the “foundations” for the pillars with a chisel. I cut the top to size, and using the router table, I form the decorative edge. Again, I use a router to cut the groove for the inlay, glue the inlay in, flush them to the surface as with the drawers and attach the top. I also show how I fix a pretty big mistake when I was cutting the inlay. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...
