Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 17 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 38 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #1: What I have learned

08-01-2010 06:56 AM by RonPeters | 6 comments »

I’m building cabinets for under my bench. I’m following the ‘plans’ provided and they call for splines and slots. From the plans: So, I spent the better part of a day routing out 1/4” deep 1/8” slots in 3/4” birch ply which mates up with some rock maple edging with corresponding slots. I’m thinking ”Hey, this is going to look really cool, birch and maple.” Got the splines cut and started dry assembly only to discover that t...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

02-11-2010 03:15 AM by KnotWright | 6 comments »

One of the best things about Lumberjocks is that an individual can be exposed to so many different ways to do the same task. While you are working in your shop, you aren’t really exposed to too many different ways, normally the way you were taught, or how you figured it out, tends to be the way we always end up doing things. This way might not be the most efficient or productive, but it does get the job done. My question for everyone is how do you do the following task: I”...

Your Table Saw as a Biscuit Joiner Jig?

09-24-2012 03:06 AM by TechRedneck | 4 comments »

I had a table top to glue up this weekend and was looking to build a jig to get better results adding biscuits to align the boards during glue up. I made a mistake on my last set of glue-ups and thought the boards were flush, but when I pulled them out of the clamps they were not even and required a lot of work to flatten. I don’t like extra work and would rather use some common sense. There are a number of jigs on this site and in the trade mags that show how to fix the base of a ...

Outdoor Dining table #4: Finally doing the woodworking portion on the table.

01-30-2012 12:40 AM by Ken90712 | 11 comments »

Well life has been busy for me, like most of us on here I’m sure. Between X-mas, work, travel, and the Honey do list, how time flies. I just received more cutting board commissions and of course they all want them for Valentine’s Day. But money is a good thing. I have planned down the rough Walnut after making a jig for my planner, turning it into a 12 1/2 inch jointer Thx to Fine Woodworking magazine. See project, http://lumberjocks.com/projects/59496 for more info. This worked ...
