Can I get a free SawStop? #1: I think I have an idea so that all of us woodworkers can get a free Saw-Stop!!

03-04-2012 05:21 AM by sillac | 21 comments »

What do you all think of this? If collage girls now will be able to get $3000.00 over 3 years for birth control protection, under Obama Care, the reasoning being that this is cheaper for all the rest of us tax payers than for the girl getting pergnet for having her social fun; and what is the cost for the rest of her socially fun life, then how much more cheaper is it for the tax payers to pay for a Saw-Stop table saw, about $3000.00, for all woodworkers so that the woodworkers can have safe...

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #2: Guide Block for the Wooden Screw Tap

03-01-2012 06:55 PM by Mauricio | 9 comments »

Hello LJ’s, As noted in the previous post I’m halfway through the milling of my lumber. I’ve set that aside for the weekend when I can run my machines without waking the kids. For now I’m starting to work on the wooden screw for my leg vise. First I thought I would post some of my sketches for my wooden screw plans. Maybe they will be helpful for someone else. Sorry, not as pretty as Mads sketches… Here is what I got done last night. I had already glued...

Day one

03-01-2012 02:11 AM by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.

Raising panels with the Stanley #4

02-29-2012 01:04 PM by Paul Sellers | 44 comments »

Should I tell you that a plain Jane #4 plane with no retrofit irons, specialist cap irons or dead flat soles is of equal value to the beastly heavyweights engineers and salesmen tell you you need I would of course enter the realms of controversy most men fear to tread. But I have to do it for the benefit of my fellow woodworkers who might think these others are telling truth instead of merely discrediting Leonard Bailey’s entrepreneurial abilities in producing the perfect metal cast plane. As...

Dust Collector Choice

02-28-2012 02:51 AM by rockinmichael | 24 comments »

I’ve recently been in the market for a new dust collector. I really care about filtration, but do I really need a shop fox or grizzly portable cyclone, or should I go for a cheaper single stage model. I am just a hobbyist with a small shop in a two car garage. Any recommendations?

Take a look at these router lifts, they are so cool. I’m going to build one after I purchase a new table saw this week. I’ll just have to eat sparser but I have to have a saw.
