The quick and dirty instructions on how to make a zig-zag pattern cutting board. Click on the pictures to see a full size image. Choose a couple different types of hardwood. The more colors the better. Below is cherry, maple and walnut. Rip strips of wood any width so the total with is about 12”. This is the width that will fit through my planer. The beauty of this is that none of the widths have to be the same. The board shown below is made of scrape wood. If you only have shor...

Easy Shop Table

01-14-2011 04:02 AM by Lockwatcher | 41 comments »

I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...

The ABCs of Table Saws

09-21-2012 09:00 PM by knotscott | 26 comments »

Making Sense of Table Saw Classifications - Buying a new table saw can be a little confusing to an inexperienced buyer. The models, brands, manufacturers, and types of saws are in a constant state of change. What was true just a few years ago may no longer apply, so it can be difficult to get reliable information even from seasoned veterans if they haven’t been keeping up on the trends. Even seasoned veterans may be surprised at how rapidly the marketplace changes. To help simplify your pu...

Making a Texas Star

01-15-2012 04:56 AM by iltws2 | 19 comments »

I would like to start out by saying the projects listed on this site really show some of the best talent and creativeminds ever amassed on one website. Makes me jealous. Any way I have been asked to show how I make a Texas Star, so I decided to share this with everyone. There are a few things you need to make before starting. First thing is to make a pattern making fence for your table saw. It is real simple. I usually make mine 4-6 inches wide out of 3/4”plywood. Rip a scrap piece o...

Murphy Bed #1: Building a Murphy Bed from scratch

07-10-2013 10:57 PM by Jim Jakosh | 32 comments »

We need a Murphy bed next winter in Arizona and I did not want to buy the hardware. That takes all the fun out of designing it yourself and costs $360. So I looked at a lot of bed designs and settled on one that used HD pivots, gas springs for counterbalance and a swing out leg support rather than the fold down kind.The parameters were a twin mattress (7×39 x 75), had to flip long ways and enough room inside for making the bed. Then I had to decide on the pivot points, the foot pivot ce...

The EZ mitre technique

07-26-2010 10:55 PM by BritBoxmaker | 79 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...

Kitchen Treasures #1 Making the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin #1: The Jigs

10-04-2008 01:36 AM by lew | 12 comments »

I have had so many positive comments and feedback on the Celtic Knot Rolling Pin. Thank you for all of them. Many LumberJocks asked for instructions on how they are made- so here goes. I am a fan of “Cook Book” style instructions so if I miss any details, please let me know and I will try to flesh them out. I thought it best to start with the jigs I used to prepare the turning blanks. Please note that I always over engineer everything and hardly ever see the obvious or the easy...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #9: Success! A functioning Table Saw

04-27-2010 12:32 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Spent a bit of time today doing some tweaking and setting up. I made a new piece to hold the toggle clamp out of 1/2” ply. The thinner material made the stock bolt the perfect length. The new zero clearance insert is in and I put in my trusty 50 tooth Freud thin kerf blade. A couple of hours setting everything up and it works!!! A bit of cleaning and waxing was involved today. I ripped a short section af ash and the cut looks really nice. First project….the cabinet for un...

To Shopsmith or Not to Shopsmith

07-28-2008 09:57 PM by Brad | 32 comments »

So I’ve been debating with my father in law about weather or not he should sell his Shopsmith setup invest in building a new shop using standard stand alone tools and machines. He’s about to retire and is kicking the idea around of either selling it or dropping another $1K into upgrading to all new Shopsmith stuff. Personally I’ve never used the SS but I sincerely doubt I’d be a fan. Not being able to move from machine to machine would bug the hell outta me and bein...

Table Saw Outfeed Table #2: Finished up and tested

07-30-2012 03:18 PM by Drifter | 0 comments »

Got quite a bit accomplished this weekend. I was able to finish putting the out feed table together saturday morning and then move on to the bathroom vanity again. Sure helps having the outfeed table to handle the larger parts as well as being able to puch through the smaller items without worring about holding on to them on the back side of the saw table. Here is a little detail on the hinge mounts: I had to remove the angle iron mount on the side of my saw and enlarge the slots so t...
