Hints and Tips #9: Occasional Pocket Hole Joinery

08-27-2015 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

While I cannot be called a die hard fan of pocket hole joinery, I’ll admit it has some uses. Such a use came about today as I was completing a project (to be posted in a day or two). This method of making pocket holes without an expensive jig I saw in a video by Steve Carmichael. (the link starts the video right at the part I’m talking about). [Above] These are the tools I used to do this procedure. Your choices may vary. I’m using a 3/8 inch spade bit, 1/8 in. twis...

Ridgid R4512 router table installation

08-16-2015 06:14 PM by AfraidKnot | 0 comments »

I have been wanting to install my router table on my Ridgid R4512 table saw, and finally came up with an idea to easily mount it and easily keep it level using a hanger system. First I bought 3 sticks of angle aluminum 1/8”x1”x36”, and cut them down to about 31” and drilled holes on each end at 29 and 7/8” on center.

repurposing scrap keepers or burners #1: when to keep when to burn

07-20-2015 09:38 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 1 comment »

We all accumulate scrap. Some scrap can be cut down and repurposed into other projects, some can be salvaged and others just need to be thrown in a burn pile. Knowing what can be re used really depends on what you typically make. if you have a lot small pieces and you build wooden toys then more than likely you can reshape those into functional pieces, how ever if you are some who builds furniture small pieces of scrap are not going to do you any good.
