Dado Jig for the Router

07-20-2019 02:38 PM by Rich | 2 comments »

I built one of these a couple of years back and unfortunately didn’t make it long enough for 24” panels. It was based on this one. While it did the job exactly as it should, I never liked the fact that the knobs to adjust it were underneath. It required the jig and the board both to be elevated when you cut the dado. I need to rout dadoes for shelves in the sides of an upright pantry for a client. The sides are 90” tall, so wrestling them over a dado set on my saw is ...

3D Printing for the Workshop

07-14-2019 09:55 PM by Redoak49 | 2 comments »

Recently, there have been a couple of threads about 3D printing. I know very little about the subject but am fortunate that my son had a 3D printer and printed some things for me from PLA filament. His printer is a PRUSA i3 MK3. Some of his design work has been in Sketchup but he has moved on to using Fusion360. I recently broke one of the side pieces for a Grrripper. A drawing was made of the part and a new one printed and works great. It is quite a bit cheaper than buying a repl...

How to build a Veneer Bag Deployment and Storage Jig

02-14-2019 06:01 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

I built this a few years ago and had originally decided not to share it because it wasn’t furniture, but enough people saw me use it in my videos and have asked about it so I decided to edit the video and share how I built it along with the veneer supplies I use. The bage is a little over 4 1/2 feet wide and close to 9 feet long. Basically I can fit a 4 x sheet of plywood in it and still have enough bag left over to fold it around the PVC pipe to clamp it shut. If you are intereste...

The Box-From-A-Block Jig

02-04-2019 07:16 AM by Matt Snyder | 6 comments »

This is a jig I made that allows me to make a small box from any size block of wood (within reason). The appropriately sized frame pieces mount to the walnut sliders and the whole jig mounts to my router table. I was able to route out 13 blocks in less than 20 minutes. I decided to use the live edge slab from chainsaw milling the walnut I used for the sliders. That scrap slab had some cool spalting in it. Here’s a YouTube video of the build. I hope you enjo...

How to build an oval cutting jig (elliptical router jig)

12-06-2018 07:46 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

I got a wild idea to build an oval table and I didn’t want to wait for a store bought jig to show up in the mail, so I decided to make my own. If you are interested you can watch it on Youtube or read about it below Video recapToday I’m making a shop made oval cutting jig, because I needed it to build this table. That video should be out in a few hours, so please check back I started out the build by cutting the base to size. I’m making it out of ¾” plywood but ¼” would be b...

Exhaust Heat Shield (toy trucks) drilling indexing jig

11-02-2018 02:45 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, Haven’t posted for a while other than make annoying comments to others’ posts. Thought I’d slip in this quickie little blog to give you guys a chance to reciprocate. I was besotted by J’1974’s build of one of his models using a “perforated” exhaust heat shield. He even went to the trouble of writing up a blog. With my failing eyesight bolstered by ill fitting glasses, I contemplated that there must be an easier way to do it ...

10-14-2018 03:37 AM by htl | 13 comments »

This is wheel jig number 3. Make sure your eyes are rested and you have your reading glasses handy it’s a long one. Here’s the kind a wheels I can make with this jig. I seem to never quit finding I need to adjust my jig for different sized wheels, and have been building more modern cars that use small wheels even though they are not small models.The case in point was my last build a Mustang, I blow up the plans to be twice as big and the wheels were still under 2̶...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...
