I call any taper that cannot be accurately cut on the table saw a micro taper. Usually anything under 1 degree. The taper I needed to cut was 0.2 degrees, so the only tool for the job was the jointer. The process was pretty simple. I needed to taper 1/16” over an 18-inch length. I made a 1/16” spacer and raised my jointer to a 1/16” cut. I placed one end of the panel on the spacer and ran the panel through the jointer. As the front edge of the panel hits the knives, t...

In Need of a KnobI am in the process of designing and building a horizontal mortise machine. For that, I needed a precise circle cut-out. To do that, I needed a circle jig. For that, I needed a knob, one with a threaded stud. I had made one a while ago, and found my template, improved my technique a bit and went to work. The Knob ConceptMost knobs are formed like a star, with five “pointers”. I took Inkscape to the rescue to create a template, here a picture: It’...
I spent yesterday cleaning and tuning up the router plane I got from Matthew Morris. I also decided to edit the video and get it posted on You Tube. It was a long day and I am pretty tired today from staying up so late, so without much fanfare and ado, I am just going to drop it in here. View on YouTube

Not quite happy with the insert provided by Bosch, I decided to build my own. It is a pretty common thing on most mitre saws and should help give a nicer cut. Of course, I kept the original in case I have to tilt it over on the bevel adjustment. This will handle everything else. I rarely use the bevel anyway. I just stick to mitres and straight cuts for the most part. I am still getting accustomed to Lightworks. It is much more powerful than what I need, but I am getting some of my r...
My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment.
