DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

Shop stuff #123: A Cute Sander Jig

05-11-2018 09:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have been meaning to make this for quite a while now. I saw a video from Chris Cute that reminded me to get it done. I have use for it coming up and it ought to come in handy. I had fun putting this together. Not much measuring involved and made from left overs. I just found what fit and put it together. The plan has been in my head for a while. I wanted something that was sturdy, yet easy to remove the sander from it. The ability to clamp it to the bench was thought of as I built ...

I picked up this old no. 4 hand plane recently and thought I would show how I tune up an old plane and get it ready for use in my shop. I know there are a lot of different methods and ways to restore a plane so I thought I would share how I do it. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZV0DfQRPxIs

Restoring a ‘59 unisaw #1: From rusty to almost done and thoughts. Add other goodies.

05-07-2018 02:51 AM by TheFridge | 24 comments »

Picked it up this almost complete unisaw (missing miter gauge. Meh) off Craigslist for 450$ from a feller. With goose egg, dust cover, and extra 36” bies fence thrown in for free :) sold the jet lock for 50$. Have since acquired a 52” unifence missing a part or 2 but in good shape to use. Has a 2HP 3ph motor so I picked up a VFD for 80$ After selling off the other 2. While I’m at it :) Have since picked up a barely used performax 16/32 drum sander for 250$ and 420...

I made this planter box for my wife’s front porch vegetable garden. It was pretty simple to make using pocket holes and gluing in some reinforcement boards to hopefully add some extra support. I hope you like the video. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lw5L1LjPQlc

New Shop Build #3: A solid foundation

04-26-2018 09:26 PM by Bikerdan | 3 comments »

Finally! After days of planning, waiting, questions, weather issues, more planning, and more waiting, it’s finally done! I have a foundation to build on! As you can probably tell, I’m really excited. There were a couple of changes I was able to squeeze in to the plan before the pour. I added a Ufer ground and ran conduit to an electrical cement floor box so I’ll have power ran to the middle of the room. I mostly plan on using that for my table saw and for running pow...
