Name plate for a toolbox...

01-19-2012 05:43 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

Okay so it’s not a woodworking tool box, but it does have a wooden scroll saw nametag. The story goes like this, Hayden (or is online name Hayd3n) a good friend who has helped me on a few projects (coffin , speakers for example) and will be helping on a few more soon like a couple of bed end trunks. He has also helps me organise the basement a little, and the ongoing joke is he is building his shop in my basement… Anyway, he is young and doesn’t have a lot of tools of hi...

Drawer Front Jig

01-17-2012 04:06 AM by pastorglen | 2 comments »

One of the challenges I faced on my recent bed project was getting my drawer fronts to all line up the same. I left very little room for error, and, since I had two rows of three drawers on each side, I really wanted all the drawer fronts to be “covered and aligned.” The solution: a good jig. Below are four pictures of two different jigs I used. The first three are for aligning the drawer front to the drawer box. I basically built two “U”s. The first U was the ...

Making a Texas Star

01-15-2012 04:56 AM by iltws2 | 19 comments »

I would like to start out by saying the projects listed on this site really show some of the best talent and creativeminds ever amassed on one website. Makes me jealous. Any way I have been asked to show how I make a Texas Star, so I decided to share this with everyone. There are a few things you need to make before starting. First thing is to make a pattern making fence for your table saw. It is real simple. I usually make mine 4-6 inches wide out of 3/4”plywood. Rip a scrap piece o...

Councilor

12-28-2011 03:22 PM by T. D. Reid | 1 comment »

Today’s blog is named councilor either because I need see mine or my day was spent being one.At Tim Horton’s yesterday Tom embarrassed me by playing a DS game while an adult was talking to him. Then as we were leaving a good friend ask him if he got everything he wanted for Christmas and he said “no I wanted a BB gun and didn’t get it”. What, we never heard of this before and besides you have a pellet rifle. I know it sounds like a kid right? Well on Christmas he was very greedy and threw a...

Router Jig #1: Very simple router jig

12-23-2011 11:47 AM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

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 ...

Give a dog (hole) a bone

12-18-2011 07:08 AM by OneDizzyDevil | 0 comments »

I have trying to find cheap inserts for my dog holes but dang they are relativly expensive when you need several of them. So, I found something a dog hole clamp that I really liked that was not plastic; however, they were rather expensive (Veritas Clamps) at ~45 bucks a pair. Well I am a cheap skate so no way in the world I was going to pay that so I decided to make my own. I had a lot of the equipment already like a tap and die set and the drill press which makes it a thousand time easi...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #6: OUR BEST EPISODE YET- If I do say so myself...

12-16-2011 10:21 PM by StumpyNubs | 22 comments »

If you haven’t seen the show yet, this may be the episode to start with. It’s fast moving, introduces a great project, and features the twisted sense of humor that makes Stumpy Nubs videos unique. This week the workshop finds itself designing a clamp rack that will hold 48 clamps in just 3X2’ of wall space. Then Stumpy reviews “stretchy tape” (whatever that is…) And finally (my favorite part) Stumpy tries to figure out how to get out of trouble wit...

12-13-2011 05:07 PM by DaveTPilot | 1 comment »

Hello Guys and Gals, It has been a while since I’ve been on the site, or in the shop for that matter, due to the busy shedule of my new job. I just recently started working in the shop again and it feels great! As some of you may know, I love building shop made jigs and fixtures as well as finding inexpensive solutions to woodworking challenges. I am in the process of building a dovetail jig from plans in a ShopNotes issue. The jig uses threaded knobs. I didn’t have any in t...
