Mobile table saw/router table with an infeed and outfeed table #1: Mobile table saw/router table section

05-12-2012 04:31 PM by Peteyb | 11 comments »

Let me give thanks to zzzzdoc and tedth66 for showing their nice work with their mobile table saws. I have a small two car garage that the wife wants to park her car in all the time. So I need to find away to be able to work and then clean up and push everything out of the way so she can get her vehicle in. I have viewed both of their projects and started one of my own. I drew up a rough sketch and measurements of what I would like to get out of my mobile table saw/router table. I wo...

New Directions #3: New (old) TOOLS!!!!!

01-15-2015 03:59 AM by JeremyPringle | 6 comments »

New direction in life… new outlook on life… new projects to build… so why not some new tools? In the end of all this, my hope is to be 100% hand tool. I still occasionally use a router table because I don’t have decent moulding planes or a full set of hollows and rounds yet….. yet..... I was able to pull some strings and with a little begging to certain people that I know and hold in high regard (who will remain a secret) I was able to get my hands on some...

The ABCs of Table Saws

09-21-2012 09:00 PM by knotscott | 30 comments »

Making Sense of Table Saw Classifications - Buying a new table saw can be a little confusing to an inexperienced buyer. The models, brands, manufacturers, and types of saws are in a constant state of change. What was true just a few years ago may no longer apply, so it can be difficult to get reliable information even from seasoned veterans if they haven’t been keeping up on the trends. Even seasoned veterans may be surprised at how rapidly the marketplace changes. To help simplify your pu...

Marketing and Selling your woodworking #4: Shows

07-01-2013 11:06 AM by huff | 9 comments »

Shows; It doesn’t matter if you’re selling country crafts or high end one of a kind, custom made furniture; whether you’re selling at an outdoor craft festival, a juried show or a large indoor home show, the same principles apply. The biggest mistake woodworkers (or any vendor for that matter) makes; is trying to sell their work at the wrong show. Too many times a show is picked simply because it’s local or the table/booth fee is cheap. Big, Big mistake! That’s like trying to teach a p...

Quick, Cheap Thickness Sander for ShopSmith or Lathe #1: How little can I get away with building?

11-28-2011 02:48 AM by shipwright | 24 comments »

I’ve just returned to my winter home / shop in Arizona. At home I have all the tools and lots of space but here I have 1/2 a garage and a much smaller budget. That’s no reason not to have all the toys, you just have to be a bit more creative. What I need to go with the chevalet I built here last winter, to pursue marquetry, is a veneer press and a thickness sander. The press can wait until next week but the sander gets built now. Criteria:1) Gotta be cheap2) Gotta be precisi...

Harry's new router table and fence design #2: Adjustable router table fence

05-20-2012 01:43 PM by TheHarr | 14 comments »

My earlier router table fences lacked control. I would tap one side and the other would move. Tapping is an inexact way to move something in very small increments. I’ve hit on a very inexpensive, easy to make, router adjustment system that works well. It can quickly, and easily, zero in on precise fence adjustments. This fence is attached to the table using four bolts that can be set up and removed in just a couple of minutes. So less talking and more photos; thanks to my neighbor...

Optimal Cutting with minimum scrap - iPad app

11-02-2011 12:31 PM by SmartCutter | 18 comments »

I recently finished working on a cutting algorithm app for the iPad and iPhone called Smart Cutter, and wanted to share the app with every one hoping get some feedback from carpenters and wood workers. Smart Cutter finds the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap. It employs a state of the art algorithm to generate the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper, wood, cloth or any other material, with minimum waste. Whether y...
