The Basement #41: Moddin' the Table Saw.....

04-30-2014 08:58 PM by JL7 | 38 comments »

This is another project that I’ve been kicking around for awhile now. Kind of time consuming but think it will be a good one for the long run: First off, this is an older Craftsman “113” contractor saw. I would much rather have a shiny new cabinet saw, but lack of power and funds are preventing that! Some of the mods were done earlier and here was the saw prior to this last round of changes. I’ve never cared for those sheet metal bases on those saws. Really...

The quick and dirty instructions on how to make a zig-zag pattern cutting board. Click on the pictures to see a full size image. Choose a couple different types of hardwood. The more colors the better. Below is cherry, maple and walnut. Rip strips of wood any width so the total with is about 12”. This is the width that will fit through my planer. The beauty of this is that none of the widths have to be the same. The board shown below is made of scrape wood. If you only have shor...

Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

10-19-2010 12:56 AM by zzzzdoc | 462 comments »

At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...

My SawStop and Router Cabinet in the making

01-11-2010 06:23 AM by tedth66 | 11 comments »

Here’s my first project and my first post. Since I use my garage as a shop I needed to combine my contractor saw and router table into one and create some storage. updated photos of my changes to the router table portion of the cabinet…. I purchased the plans from WoodPlans Online but only used the mobile frame portion of the plans because the original plans lacked the storage that I was looking for. My cabinet has 3+1 drawers under the saw (1 false dra...

Workbench Challenge #7: Gluing up all those dry fits.

11-30-2013 01:04 AM by shipwright | 16 comments »

Here we go with another photo heavy blog segment. I’ve explained the reason for all the detail before so let’s just get into today’s work. With the leg assemblies all glued up, the next job is to tie them together into a rigid, rack free unit. This involves parts AC, AD, and AE in the plans. Start by marking the width of the lower stretcher cover from the work. This will be close to the dimension in the plans but almost certainly won’t be exact so mark it from the w...

Arched Bed #17: Fork Lift

01-07-2010 06:23 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

It has been awhile since I added to this series. Christmas cutting boards, a commision gate, and other matters conspired to delay my progress. Those things plus the fact we need to paint the bedroom and just decided to add hardwood floors – since we are already breaking down the room we might as well – before we can install the bed. In any event I’ve struggled moving this thing around the shop without scratching the finish or otherwise destroying it altogether. I got thi...

How to price my woodworking (and sell it) #4: Putting all the numbers together (creating a shop labor rate)

06-02-2013 12:51 AM by huff | 21 comments »

How to price my woodworking?(And sell it) Part 4 Putting all the numbers together(Creating a shop labor rate) Shop labor rate; what is that and why would I want or need to have a shop labor rate? I’d like to take credit for coming up with this, but I learned this from another woodworker and you might have even heard of him; Marc Adams. He’s well known for his woodworking classes that his school teaches, but I was lucky enough to attend one of his seminars years ago and this was ...

Making a Texas Star

01-15-2012 04:56 AM by iltws2 | 17 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...

Shop Tips & Tricks #12: Making Long, Round Things in Wood - with the Norwegian Dowel Cutter

04-15-2013 11:10 PM by GnarlyErik | 5 comments »

Sometimes you need long round parts made from wood. Prior to the 19th century, specially made wooden dowels often served where nails, screws and bolts are used today. For instance, in barn building and shipbuilding, ‘trunnels’ were used to fasten timbers together and planks to a ships ribs. Outside of lacking the strength of of metal, trunnels are not affected by electrolysis and do not rust, important considerations in ships – although of course they can eventually rot. The word ‘trunn...

$5 Incremental Fence

01-31-2011 04:25 AM by SPalm | 21 comments »

I used threaded rod as a rack to make a fence positioner. This is the same basic concept I had used earlier for a stop block which supplies 1 click every 1/32 of an inch. The threaded rod does not turn, other than a half turn for micro-adjusting. I still consider this a prototype, so I used bolts for construction which allowed me to try different options. I am in the process of reworking the router wing on my tablesaw, and this will be part of it. The whole assembly locks into place in one ...
