Shop Tools #3: Making a router lift using a Dewalt table saw for the lift

11-25-2017 12:33 AM by htl | 1 comment »

To start, this is what I have done so far, it’s not sanded up pretty just putting it all together to be sure the concept is sound. What we have here is a Dewalt table saw that I took the top off of to made a new top for my Shop Smith, now having the rest of the table left over I got looking at the lift mechanism and saw how it might be used for a router lift.So this has been my project the last couple a days to build a router lift using a table saw lift. If I hadn&...

Pattern challenge (23rd of November - 23rd of December)

11-24-2017 01:31 PM by FancyChip | 3 comments »

The only one way for me now to make new album, is to challenge myself. As I know, there are many drawing challenges, when people draw one picture a day (with ink pen or something else), and I decided to draw and carve one pattern a day (6cm x 6cm) during the next 30 days (the challenge started on 23rd of November). And then, when it’s all done, I will make an album in PDF with all the created patterns. I have never done anything like this before, so it will be a real challenge for me.. ...

Tool Cabinets #6: tapered sliding dovetails

11-24-2017 06:15 AM by glideking | 0 comments »

This is my new favorite tool for now. Stanley #39 dado plane. Those cross grain shavings peel out and roll away. It cuts a very smooth dado indeed. None of the tearout I get with a table saw or router. I cut all of the slots for the block plane gallery and the four bottom drawer dividers. The tapered sliding dovetailed shelves really lock everything together. What a joy it is to be doing something in solid wood for a change. I am so tired of plywood and MDF.

Band Saw Slicing Jig #1: Tenoning Jig for cutting thin rings

11-24-2017 12:39 AM by Julian | 5 comments »

I needed to reduce the thickness of a segmented ring and in the past I just did this with a handsaw. This time I decided to try it on the bandsaw with my tenoning jig. I removed part of the tenoning jig so that it would clear the blade. I attached a piece of plywood with double sided tape to extend the reach of the jig. Then I attached the ring with double sided tape and made the cut. The tenoning jig has an adjusting knob that allows you to make fine adjustments. You can cut very thin...

Well, we have a new unit in the park. This happened this past summer and there was a good turn out of interested folks. I thought the process was worth recording….so I did. Of course a bit of a preamble on why I have not been releasing too many videos lately. View on YouTube

Twin screw vise #1: The front chop

11-23-2017 05:20 PM by Dave Polaschek | 9 comments »

This winter I want to start cutting dovetails, doing a dovetail a day for a month to build my skills. In preparation for that, I’m adding a twin-screw vise to my bench, using the Veritas mechanism. I’m planning to make the jaws three feet wide, with a full 24 inches (minus a little) between the screws, so I can also use this vise to hold wood I’m resawing with my frame saw. Since the front chop is going to be the most visible bit (even though a lot of it will be covered b...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #5: Lower Cabinet Design - Tool Packing

11-23-2017 02:59 AM by Bluenote38 | 5 comments »

SktechUp – what a great tool! I can change things much easier, explore design options, and visualize architectures far easier. After a couple false starts a bit of learning on how SketchUp works compared to its big brothers the lower cabinet literally came together. The lower cabinet is expressly to house most of my power tools – the ones I reach for regularly. The multi-tool and biscuit joiner will stay in their respective cases because they just don’t get used much. T...
