Building the Shop #19: Ridgid R4512 Zero Clearance Insert

12-07-2011 02:54 AM by Lance | 17 comments »

I decided to try my DW618 out tonight and made a ZERO clearance insert for my Ridgid 4512 out of MDF, kind of just playing but it came out pretty well so I finished it. I’m SCARED to cut through with it, for some reason I think it’s going to come up and hit me because it’s not a 100% secure engineered fit. Give me some feedback, will I be fine??

Build a router table #1: The cabinet

03-10-2012 12:58 AM by Stevinmarin | 25 comments »

What I wanted to do with this router table was to make it inexpensively and using simple techniques. It’s all made with 1×3 pine boards and 1/4” plywood. Next week’s video will be all about the top and fence.

Build a router table #2: Router table top and fence

03-16-2012 11:20 PM by Stevinmarin | 29 comments »

Really happy with the way this fence turned out. It’s got a lot of weight to it, is square, and moves pretty smoothly. I found the clamping system in a great book called Woodworking With The Router, by Bill Hylton. If you want a good, basic router book, I recommend it. Next week I plan on making a router lift. Not sure how that will go. I have all the parts and can start this weekend!

Constructing "Old 99" #1: Starting the journey.

08-25-2008 02:49 PM by MrWoody | 6 comments »

A while ago someone requested a blog on the construction of my toys. I’ll start by warning you that writing composition is not one of my strong suits. Also I build everything from plans even if I have to draw my own. This project was actually started 6 months ago, then other higher priority projects or life got in the way. It is now complete and will be posted once all the blog parts are posted.I’ll try for one a day.TIME: I often get asked “How many hours did it take?”I believe a hobby is so...

Blocks (long article)

02-05-2012 12:12 AM by Danpaddles | 6 comments »

I’ve never blogged, but I thought y’all might find some small humor in this piece. I wrote this over 13 years ago as a way to blow off some steam- it is not entirely all true, I bull shitted a little. I ain’t sayin’ how much, or where. Just that I bull shitted some. I posted it on the rec (rec.woodworking, a newsgroup that preceded forums). I am aware I do not come off looking like the ideal son-in-law. Don’t judge me too harshly, there is always more to a ...

Sam Maloof inspired rocking chair #1: Part #1 My most complicated project to date

09-02-2011 06:12 AM by sandhill | 19 comments »

This may be a bit early to post this with 2 large projects in the works but I just couldn’t help it. I am still jazzed up from watching the DVD’s I ordered from Hal Taylors “Rocking chair university”. As many of you know I have a good bit of cherry sitting around so I thought it would be a good wood to start with because number one I have it, number two if I screw it up I just grab another piece, number three if it comes out good I will have a nice looking chair. I sta...

A new life for a 1/4HP motor... is going to be a diy lathe! #4: The lathe bed is done!

07-18-2011 05:31 PM by FreddyS | 3 comments »

Hi everyone, rain was almost gone this weekend so I could finish the lathe bed, it nearly catches me distracted and a few drops got into the top of the bed, luckily I noticed and saved all before any damage was made hehe, here are the photos: 1 & 2.- marking the plywood, that’s where the grooves for the vertical supports will be made. 3.- setting the router bit height for the grooves, I did the 3/8” groove in two passes, and the router bit is a special one with the same ...

Thicknessing drum sander - shop made

02-25-2008 11:09 PM by YorkshireStewart | 59 comments »

I’ve had a fancy for a thicknessing sander but a 10-20 inch model costs the equivalent of $1000 US over here and there’s no way I can justify that sort of spending so I looked into making one of my own. There’s no shortage of help to be had on the world-wide-web. The links I found useful include: Dominic’s Woodshop Kawika Ukulele Sander Ray Lanham Woodcentral Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery Mother earth The Woodshop Art Herrick Luthiers’ Friend Nick’s drum S...

02-03-2008 10:25 PM by Blake | 38 comments »

Grab some popcorn… I made a movie!(Make sure the volume is up… it might be a little quiet) Story:I have been working really hard to tune up my bandsaw lately. I really wanted one of these:...for tensioning and detensioning the blade. But I am at the end of my budget and can’t spend another $150. I had seen pictures of a homemade version in a magazine and decided to make my own. I posted this to try to get ideas. Anyway, this is what I came up with and it works gre...
