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
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...
Shrink the workbench (if you can call it that, it more a table top right now) OK no lynching, it is not an actual proper workbench! ;-) Sounds counterintuitive, but it is actually too big for a tiny shop. It is there only because I reused what I had without any changes. I recycle this from the time I made concrete countertops for the kitchen. This one and a few more held the molds where the concrete was curing before being moved and installed into the kitchen. Fundamentally a sheet of ...

All comments and suggestions are welcomed!! Thanks!
Hey LJ just posting a recent video I did on making a tiny bud vase I make from Australian Red wood. The shape is not perfect but it looks nice because of its size. Enjoy!
Hi everyone! Just starting out, and already, I’m running out of money :P Thought I’d share this quick tip someone gave me. Never forget that if you have a festool MFT/3, you always have a convenient way of making a sled with scraps in little to no time. Sled is 3/4 mdf, then just use some clamps on the side of the table to get the bottom rail. Upper rail is easy to do with the MFT/3 accessories. From Woodworking From Woodworking Cheers! Looking forward to doing proje...
