## Furniture Design #1: Fibonacci gauge

08-05-2007 02:00 AM by | 33 comments »

1 • 1 • 2 • 3 • 5 • 8 • 13 • 21 • 34 – The Fibonacci Sequence I have been fascinated with The Fibonacci Sequence and The Golden Rectangle for some time. I finally got around to building a Fibonacci Gauge that was featured in WOOD Magazine. The guage maintains a consatnt proportion of 1:1.618 between the points. It is used to help determine visually appealing proportional dimensions. I am looking forward to using the guage in future projects. Follow the text below for so...

## Fibonacci At Any Scale

I thought it was about time I made myself a ‘Fibonacci Gauge’ and like most of us would I looked up on how everyone else did it. There were some great efforts made by fellow Jocks on the subject;David made a good crack at it http://lumberjocks.com/David/blog/1639so did FJPetruso http://lumberjocks.com/projects/37696and my good buddy Karson http://lumberjocks.com/projects/24528 Karson has his Excel spreadsheet for calculating gauges at any size. This is w...

## Beads Box #6: Incra Style Box Joint Jig/Sled for the Table Saw (998SE)

12-31-2010 02:15 AM by | 5 comments »

While waiting for glue to dry I tackled the large drawer that will be faced with the mahogany/maple-stripe front. After the last project where I used dovetails for all the small drawer I wisened up (is that a word?!?) and went with box joint. My box joint jig is based on my Incra 998SE Miter gauge . The 1000SE comes with the flip stop which is very useful with 2 built in stops, and a micro adjustment which I use to sneak up to a perfect box joint fit. For added stability I also use the...

## For Fun projects #1: Golden Ratio Gauge.

11-01-2012 01:11 AM by | 1 comment »

So, I haven’t told you all this yet, but I’m a huge fan of Steve Ramsey at Woodworking for Mere Mortals. I was watching one of his videos and I noticed he made a Golden Ratio (or Phi) Gauge. This gauge is used to determine the proportions of an object so that it matches the Golden Ratio, which is considered a mathematical model for perfect beauty. I’m also a fan of Finite Mathematics. WARNING MATH CONTENT AHEAD! <math>Phi is a mathematical concept. It’s a cons...

Don’t waste your money buying a marking gauge. Make your own gauge and use up some of those scraps in the shop. Please subscribe to my channel and share my videos. Click here to view video (videos still aren’t embedding).

## Hand tool tips and tricks #9: Alternate use for a wheel guage

I am very partial to wheel style gauges. Not only do they leave a crisp lines but you can use them as an extended and delicate routing plane for all sorts of fine operations. Hear I am using it to get a hinge installed. Try it out some time. Ryan

David posted pictures of his new miter gauge and was looking for some pictures of other miter gauges. I commited to show some pictures of my Jessem miter guage. The first step in using my table saw is removing the Peacock. (Deb has named him LJ). The box on top of the table saw is a Biesmeyer Over Arm Saw guard that is waiting to be installed. On to the miter gauge. It is a JessEm Mite-R-Excel. It has a 24" fence and can extend to 36" The gauge has a Dual-Indexing Angle Location ...

## Dave's Workshop #17: Handy Mini Multi-Miter Sled

07-24-2016 08:55 PM by | 4 comments »

This is one of those jigs I’ve thought about for a while and finally decided to just do it. It’s down and dirty, focused very much on function and not at all on prettiness. Originally I planned to make a dedicated 90 degree miter gauge since the one for my saw is pretty unreliable. It works, but—well, you know. After I got the 90 degree part finished it occurred to me to try some added functionality. On the board behind the fence I added two fences, one at 45 de...
