How to build an oval cutting jig (elliptical router jig)

12-06-2018 07:46 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

I got a wild idea to build an oval table and I didn’t want to wait for a store bought jig to show up in the mail, so I decided to make my own. If you are interested you can watch it on Youtube or read about it below Video recapToday I’m making a shop made oval cutting jig, because I needed it to build this table. That video should be out in a few hours, so please check back I started out the build by cutting the base to size. I’m making it out of ¾” plywood but ¼” would be b...

Shop stuff #141: Roubo bench build part 9

11-24-2018 06:50 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

A huge amount of work gets done in this one. It’s worth it though. This is how I made the legs for the Roubo bench. It also brings everything on the build up to date. I am finally caught up with editing video on it. Not sure when the next bit of work will get done. Other projects and the weather will be in control of that. Still working on the bathroom reno!

Cedar post cut offs

11-19-2018 11:38 PM by Mrowell | 9 comments »

I was recently given some 8×8 and 12×12 cedar post cut offs that one of the guys working for me has been storing for years. I have a few ideas of what they can be used on but figured I would see what other people’s creativeness would bring! Any suggestions welcome

American flag bench #3: Bought a small craftsman router/table combo and a couple roundover bits.

11-04-2018 08:44 PM by Dubbs | 0 comments »

I bought a router/table combo from sears ($100) and a couple roundover bits ($15 each). I rounded over the tops of all 13 slats then sanded them down. Then I dryfit them using 1/4 inch nuts as spacers. Had to drill new holes because most of the boards didn’t line up with current ones. Bought Ace hardware out of 1/4”x1.5” bolts nuts and washers for now (13). I’ll have to go back later for the rest. When all is said and done it will have cost me ($30)

Making Tree into Rope

11-03-2018 02:02 PM by MaxAdvoko | 0 comments »

Hi folks! This video is about making a primitive rope from a young fir. Such rope was used by loggers and raftsmen in the past. Admittedly, the fir rope is less flexible than traditional rope and it will be harder to tie into a knot, but it only takes a few minutes to make such rope.Moreover, this DIY rope has a number of unexpected woodworking uses that I will tell you about in this three minute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3MpFoIX5uw.

Shop stuff #140: Fixing a snow blower.

11-03-2018 03:18 AM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Not wood working, but they can make the path to the shop a bit easier. I went with a friend to pick up his Father In Laws snow blower that has been sitting for 2 years. Not using things sometimes leads to problems. So I took a day and fixed it up for him. A change of pace from the usual in my shop. View on YouTube

Ever seen a stopped miter joint?

10-31-2018 01:12 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I’m in the process of building my woodworking tool cabinet and I had to cut a stopped miter joint. I’d never done this before and never heard of it before. It was a unique situation and thought I would share the experience on video. https://youtu.be/oXllBvNLIoE What are your thoughts? Scott

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #9: Other projects – Evolution of a Shop Vac cart

10-29-2018 05:46 PM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

And… I built a Dust Deputy based Shop Vac Cart. Like everyone I started with 1, 2, 3 Shop vacs. And like everyone I found they were great for general vacuuming but filled/clogged fast. I just HATED emptying these and knocking out the filter because invariable dust ended up everywhere. So reading through lots posts and articles (and being cheap) I tried the PVC pipe and bucket idea. It worked pretty well for big stuff but the fine dust still clogged the filter and frankly it was a pain to u...
