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...

New Use for Old Water Skis

11-26-2018 12:04 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

I had a customer bring me 3 water skis and asked me to build a corner shelf for them. It sounded straight forward until I started thinking about how to make sure the skis were square and plumb when I built it. I ended up mocking up a wall in the workshop so I could get all the parts lined up and determine the dimensions of the shelf unit. I made a video of the project if you’re interested to see how I overcame the challenge and how it all came together. It was a fun project, inclu...

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!

Making Tree into Rope

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
