Miter Bench and Storage #1: Getting started with the base

2327 days ago by sIKE | 12 comments »

Finally got started on Norms Miter Bench and Storage. I had previously rough cut the base components so thankfully I didn’t have to break down six sheets of 3/4 ply. I started with the rabbits and the dado’s on all of the pannels. Note, the rabbits (when called for) go on the back not the front of the panel, most important on the right cabinet (scratch one panel). Then used a template to cut the notches and hole in the back for dust collection (scratch the same panel the second t...

My Long Wait for a Workshop #5: Home Made Air Filter

1189 days ago by JWags | 12 comments »

Hello again, Just finished my homemade shop air filter. I had to change my original plans, which were to hang it from the ceiling. That’s because I also wanted a washable filter, to keep down on the ongoing costs. So here was the final criteria: I needed a blower that would draw and push at least 800 CFm, a primary filter that would catch up to 5 microns, and a secondary filter that would catch 1 micron particles, and not be cost prohibitive. Plus – it had to be quiet. S...

New Table Saw Sled Idea....

619 days ago by dakremer | 23 comments »

What do you guys think of a table saw sled with a removable insert for different blades, and blade angles? This is just something I put together really quickly in Google Sketchup – not very detailed and not the final design – just demonstrating an idea. I can already think of a few problems such as the fence will get ripped up with the different blades/angles. I don’t want 8 table saw sleds laying around the shop. I figured it’d be much easier to just make one...

The Circle/Radius Sanding Jig

685 days ago by TheBoxStoreCraftsman | 8 comments »

Here is an easy to make Sanding/Radius Jig to fit the Rigid oscillating spindle sander Model # EB44241. I’m building this jig out of re-purposed material, a handful of hardware and a drill press turned knob so the cost to make this jig is actually on a couple of dollars (Frugal Craftsman).

Cutlist and Layout from Sketchup

2216 days ago by daltxguy | 317 comments »

If you’re a fan of Sketchup for creating woodworking models, then the next obvious step is to use Sketchup to help you create cutlists and layouts. Sketchup plugin Cutlist 4.1 does just that. CutList 4.1 sketchup plugin helps you determine how much of each material you need to produce your design, taking into account nominal sized lumber with allowances for finishing to final size. Then it goes one further and lays out all of the pieces on boards or sheet good sizes of your choosing. Th...

Cutting Board: How To's #1: Zig Zag Cutting Board - How To:

1393 days ago by McLeanVA | 50 comments »

For those of you who asked me for a tutorial on how to make the zig zag legless vegetable death table (cutting board), here is my best shot. I am far too impatient to take photos when I work, so I decided to illustrate the process using some good old Adobe PhotoShop. I hope you find this useful and informative. I will outline the process in 10 steps below. I have assumed that when viewing these steps that basic woodworking skills are familiar to you. If you have questions, or run into snag...

DIY Cyclone Dust Collector

1837 days ago by SimonSKL | 42 comments »

Inspired by Jeff’s (Jcoulam) homemade cyclone dust collector, I decided to make one just like his. This blog is written to show how I built it. At a local home center, I purchased one 8”x24 metal duct, a 5-ft 2” PVC pipe, a 2” PVC elbow, and two 2” couplers for about $18. The first step is to make the cone. I tried to twist the metal sheet into a cone but just couldn’t make it look right and managed to get a small cut in my hand in the process. Ou...

Circle router jig BLOG

886 days ago by mafe | 11 comments »

Circle router jigMy version. This is a jig I have seen on the web and here on LJ in several versions, I cooked up my version and added a cheap curtain aluminum T-track so I always can extend to any length simply by buying a longer rod.(I think originally the design comes from a woodworking magazine). Since I had the photos and could see the interest on the post I made this mini blog showing more details for those who want to make one. The layout is a plywood (plywood for concrete for...
