Festool stuff #7: CMS cross cut sled fast mount, easy to use.

Normally it was screwed in place, with two wing nuts, to secure the sled to the fence, but it meant that I found it time consuming to take it on and off, what lead to often not using it… So I came up with this little mount, that simply clicks in place and where I don’t need to fine adjust the fence to fit to the screws. ...

11-20-2020 11:47 PM by mafe | 3 comments »

Vac hose holder for MFT3or any work table. Just a tiny practical project, I actually made while making my systainer router table.Decided to make a workshop version for my MFT3 worktable, or where ever I want to use it in the workshop, just connect the shop vac, when ever I need suction while working on a project, to avoid chips or dust all over the shop and be kind to my lungs. At first I just gave it a simple swivel base, using a bench dog to keep it together. Scrap piece from a vac...

Coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stoveScraping, lye and lacquer. Hi there,Time for an update, on the Japanese inspired Coffee ceremony box.

This part was actually quite a few months back now, but I have been a busy bee and happy monkey, in my wee allotment house, where lots of projects in the garden and fixing the house, is taking all the e...

Finger / box joint boxes and drawers

03-03-2020 12:14 AM by mafe | 12 comments »

Finger / box joint boxes and drawersWith Festool VS600 router jig. Yes I finally got the Festool jig up and running as some of you might have seen on the Coffee ceremony shrine blog, it had been hanging on my wall for almost a year and somehow I just did not have a project for it, so I never got it into use…(I got it at a crazy prize at app 1/3 of the sales price used, so that was why I bought it). I have to admit I had an idea it was difficult to use a jig like this, but I was all wron...

This is part two in the making of a coffee ceremony shrine for a Svea 123r camp stove.(If it sounds like madness, read the first part of the blog, if you then still think it’s madness… well then you might be right, but I enjoy every moment of the making).
