Hi everyone, a few weeks ago a friend asked me these slices to use as Christmas ornaments and I took the opportunity to release the laser machine. So far I had cut the logs by freehand but this jig is very handy and works very well. Hope make more jigs for the bandsaw in the future because is very handy to save money in blades. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/dKV1M2XVJ2s Thanks for watching and be loving!
Apparently some of the initial photos of the gaming table did not get published. I have made some adjustments and now, hopefully, these will work. I’ll explain each with less detail. The first photo below is of the table opened and the second photo is of the top closed. Again, this gaming table is exhibited in a German museum Schloss Anholt. I wanted to re-create it; so I am using the same materials, pewter, brass and faux tortoiseshell. Of course the original is not faux tortoi...
In this first issue of a series of re-creating a gaming table will begin with collecting the materials and the research on putting the project together. Below is the table housed presently in a German museum Schloss Anholt near The Netherlands/German border. There were some difficulties in getting accurate measurements and specific designs, so my wife, Ronelle, and I “had” to go over there to see and embrace the table. The curator and the staff there were very permissive in mea...
So, the idea is simple—you make one main insert that perfectly fits your table saw with the wide dovetailed slot where the small interchangeable inserts (for all your blades/dados/different angles) slide in… Here is the video of the process (3 min.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2u1xGV1NyJg Be safe and happy woodworking!

Installing new crown molding in a 200 + year old house is a challenge at best. There are simply no 90º corners anywhere. But the drawing above illustrates yet another conundrum. Someone in the dim past simplified an outside corner wall with a vertical corner molding. Good for him. Not so good for us. If I just butt the crownmolding to the outside corner bead it will look like drawing #2.I wanted a solution that wouldn’t call for stripping off the vertical corner molding but which wo...

Well, the planer was leaving tracks on one part of the blade. Obviously a chip in the knives at that point. So, with the camera rolling, I decided I would give the machine a bit of a clean up. It is a Makita 2012 planer, a little 12” lunchbox planer that I got from my father in law. So, the price was right. It is a bit odd in that the table moves up and down and the motor stays fixed in place. That makes in feed and out feed tables just about impossible. But, it is a good little ...

Hi folks! Here is a short video (2 min) how to make a drill guide. Also, you’ll might get a kick from this simple life hack: Using CD disk for drilling perpendicular holes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7UhOHgKRis Happy Woodworking!
I needed a track saw to cut a slab to make a coffee table. So I made one. This is how I did mine. By using the table saw to cut a dado in the base, the track is as accurate as a table saw. View on YouTube
