Flip-Up Bench Stop and Workbench Finish

05-10-2020 06:07 PM by WirelessWoodworker | 2 comments »

I can’t believe that I didn’t know about the blogs here on LJ! Think I’m blinded by all the fantastic project pictures. Anyway – this first blog I just wanted to share some recent changes/additions to my workbench. I’m in between projects at the moment, so decided to add a little gadget to the bench that I’ve wanted to do for a long time – a flip-up bench stop ala Frank Klausz: I’ve also started to post some more Youtube videos, so feel free to take a look at the quick...

Simple Router Circle Jig

03-28-2020 01:43 AM by Axis39 | 0 comments »

Simple might still be overstating things… I needed to make a circular hole in a speaker baffle at a hair over 9”. I love using templates with my routers… But, I needed to make an accurate template. I hate taking the screws out of my router bottom plates… I’m always losing the screws! So, I contemplated. Made a few starts. Then, was suddenly hit with inspiration! I have a little battery operated Ridgid Trim Router that I use for soooo many thing...

Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)... #16: When a "fence" doesn’t pay up…

01-31-2020 01:39 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 2 comments »

Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)…. To be fair to any product(s) mentioned, this is not a review per-se, but my impression, be it through bad judgement, misuse or just too much cheap vino. I have seen this gadget, in many videos and a few cameo appearances in pictures, however, I hav...

Workshop operational tips. #14: In the Eye of the Dowel!

12-30-2019 09:55 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 25 comments »

Boys and Girls, We all have our secrets in finding the centre of a dowel, however, unless you were on the quest of finding rc’s wallet (which is empty) in my workshop, you may have not come across my method. Most of us use standard sized dowels, whether fabricated, purchased or other unorthodox means.Nevertheless they tend to fit into holes made by traditional sized forstner bits.That same forstner bit makes the ideal centre finder. Grab a block of timber, in accordance with yo...

Spoked Wheels are my first challenge but thanks to Dutchy’s blog I have a jig… I had to do the centre’s twice as I was using too large a bamboo skewer.

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 | 3 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...
