Tips and Jigs for the Shop #7: Revised sled.......Soooper Sled Design

12-19-2009 05:49 AM by Jim Bertelson | 14 comments »

After patron, Timbo, stefang, Scott, and NBeener goaded me on, and dbHost had more ideas, I decided I had to do the SoooperSled. So I ordered the stuff from Rockler, and now it is here. So I made a design. Still not sure whether to use plywood or MDF for the base, the plywood up here is kinda marginal. Can use it for the fences, glue up a couple of layers and make sure it is straight, but don’t know for the base yet. Got a message into Timbo re that. So assuming I use plywood I have...

Torsion Box Assembly Table #1: Introduction

12-06-2009 08:31 AM by Morton | 11 comments »

I am ready to replace the top of my workbench with a dead-flat Torsion box to ease assembly of future projects. I built my current workbench a couple of years ago from plans from Fine Woodworking. The base is made from laminated plywood and is very solid. I filled the inside of the base with 6 drawers which are full and work well. The top is 2 sheets of 3/4 material that has served its purpose, but is far from flat. Part of the problem (non flatness) also stems from the fact that...

Hillbilly Track Saw Project

11-20-2011 10:46 PM by SeaWitch | 12 comments »

This is my first blog entry here on LJ. A few people asked me for some details about my Hillbilly Track Saw, so I’m going to tell you everything here. I’m shocked and honored that this project was chosen for a Top 3. I’m a rookie, and I just thought the photo would fade into oblivion. So thank you, everyone. I designed and built this because I have a lot of plywood to cut up. I’m not experienced enough or courageous enough to put big sheets through my little...

Panel Cutting Jig

04-06-2008 08:08 PM by Dadoo | 22 comments »

A couple of whiles ago when I posted my lumber rack, some of the LJ’s inquired about my panel jig. I figured that if I ever needed to replace it, then it would be right to blog it for you. I’m not going to take credit for this as I have seen it somewhere else in one of the many woodworking mags. Just can’t remember which one! This jig is used lying on top of sawhorses or the bench to crosscut and rip large sheets of material. I say “material” because we’...

I work as a contributing editor for Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and I also have my own pattern business called Sheila Landry Designs where I sell my original scroll saw and painting patterns. I was asked by MsDebbie if I would like to host an online scroll saw class here on...
