Router Jig #1: Very simple router jig

12-23-2011 11:47 AM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

I am one of these people that I just want something to work, I don’t care how the jig looks as long as if it functions they way I want it to, and works well and to make what I am making look good. I work out of a small basement, (still has the uneven dirt floor) and working round house piles, so space is at a premium. For a while I never even had a router, and once I got one I had to work out the best way for to set it up. No room really for a table… While I was thinking about ...

El cheapo mortising chisel #1: Cheap $2 prying tool from bargain bin at hardware store into mortising chisel

10-10-2013 05:13 AM by Ted78 | 3 comments »

I needed a mortising chisel, but got sticker shock when pricing them. Old ‘pigsticker’ things on e-bay were going for $30 or so not including shipping, and new mortising chisels were nearly $50! I had a $2 bargain bin pry bar from the hardware store with a square shank. I cut off the business end at an angle. A bit of grinding, and few strokes on a fairly course stone and viola! I was pleasantly surprised on how serviceable the steel is. I don’t think the steel would...

A Couple Minor Shop Enhancements

04-20-2009 03:48 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

Over the last couple months things in the shop have been fairly quiet…mainly due to things in the house being more noisy! Of course, our now 5-month-old son Nathan’s an absolute joy and easily the least-demanding baby of the three. This weekend I snuck away for a bit to put the finishing touches on my new hide-away blade storage rack. Hidden Blade Storage When I originally designed the shop cabinets, I kept the drawer sizes and placements open figuring I’d work the fin...

Repairing/Upgrading HF Bar Clamp

02-06-2010 07:11 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

I wrote a review on these HF Bar Clamps and I gave them a good review based mostly on the cost. At basically 6 for the price of 1 better clamp, they would have to achieve an impressive failure rate for me not to like them. That said, I had one fail within the 1st week of owning it. Rather than return it and get a new clamp that would suffer the same flaw, I realized I could fix it and upgrade the other ones I bought to fix the problem for about another $1, which still makes them very c...

Tips and Other Stuff #1: A little more about using shelving paper

03-03-2011 07:56 PM by cmckerliesr | 3 comments »

Hi All!I am not sure if any of you who commented on my original tip about using the adhesive shelving paper as a way to attach a scrollsaw pattern to a project. But I have done several projects using this tip now so I thought it was time to share my feelings and such about it. Love HateYeah, I developed a real love hate relationship with this tip. I love it because the vinyl sticks so nicely to the project and does not leave behind adhesive residue. But the hate sometimes makes me wonder why ...

Season of shop upgrades #1: Shop Improvements

02-16-2014 10:24 AM by PJ72 | 3 comments »

This past year I have occupied my shop time in efforts to organize the shop and spent the time to build several shop tools and accessories. Having a garage shop that is primarily used for parking cars; it has been a constant challenge to optimize the space as a part time woodworking shop. This year I removed everything from the garage to thoroughly clean and re-organize the shop. I painted the walls and added 8 banks of overhead fluorescent lights to brighten up the space. Free up Spac...
