my first blog entry: I made a plexiglass cross cut sled! & step by Video

03-01-2014 06:12 PM by MikesProjects | 5 comments »

I needed a new table saw sled for a different saw i’m using. I’m currently finishing a miter saw cut station I built & needed a sled to make small cuts. After having made a few others I notice how wooden sleds react to moisture content in the air so I wanted this new one to be built with out wood. I made this new sled out of left over plexiglass I had laying around & used aluminum for the runners. The fence is actual bulletproof glass.It came out better looking than I wou...

Make an elegant daybed out of 2x4's and recycled decking

09-01-2012 12:51 PM by JordsWoodShop | 6 comments »

In this video I make an elegant day bed for under $45!Made entirely out of 2×4s for the frame and recycled pine decking for the slats, all that’s missing is a mattress and some sunny weather! Note: I will be the first person to say that I should add a rail down the center of the bed and I will be doing so, but as I am waiting for hardware to arrive from overseas I decided to upload the video before the project was completely finished. http://www.JordsWoodShop.comhttp://www.fa...

WebSite HowTo #1: Control "linked text"

07-18-2012 06:09 PM by KnickKnack | 11 comments »

A long-standing and well-respected member recently asked me how to do something on the LumberJocks web site, and I prepared an explanation. He also suggested that perhaps other members were on the same cruise ship as him, and that a mini-blog series might be helpful. So we’ll start with this… You see it all over the web, and all over Lumberjocks… Where the word “this” is a clickable link taking you to a project you want to talk about, or a member to ...

Inversions cutting board tutorial

09-15-2011 03:50 PM by jadams | 11 comments »

In response to some questions about how this pattern is made… I’m not sure if this is the only method, but here’s how I did it. Here’s the original project I posted: Hint: When you look at the board, long ways going left to right, every row is a different size, but every group of 2 rows are all the same size! Solution: First you rip strips like you would for a regular end grain board, but in a progression of widths from l...

Hand Cutting Dovetails

07-21-2011 08:09 PM by AlexHarris | 11 comments »

Hey LJ! Sorry to anyone who got the wrong video first time they viewed, I embeded the wrong video but that has now been rectified. I am by no means what you would call an experienced hand tool user and I tend to use them in conjunction with my powertools. Nevertheless following a hand tool project where I made some bookends which I did a few weeks ago… you can check that out by clicking on the link… Here! Anyway after that video I was asked about cutting dovetails so here...

Jigs and Fixtures #3: Shooting Board Basics - VIDEO

01-13-2008 08:46 PM by mot | 35 comments »

WayneC, Bob #2 and I, have had some conversations about shooting boards. The conversations don’t last long because we all agree with eachother. It’s really the death of conversation. However, some of the hand tool posts have netted some good questions on what a shooting board is, how it works, what it does and how you use it. I put together a 15 minute overview of the basics of the shooting board. Please note, the shooting board is a tool that will have unlimited uses in yo...

Kitchen Remodel #2: Making the legs.

05-29-2007 03:30 AM by Karson | 10 comments »

Well I started the Buffet / Hutch. If I don’t get started I won’t have anything to say without getting myself in trouble, when my wife asks me what I’m making in the shop. I started out by making a full size template on plywood for all of the milling that needs to be done on the legs. Can you believe that those two templates have all of the instructions for milling 8 surfaces on the legs?Now you may ask what do you mean by 8 surfaces. This is the way that I was taught when you make ...
