A Place for Jigs at LumberJocks

11-13-2007 10:11 AM by Blake | 51 comments »

It seems to me that we need a place for Jigs at LJ’s. This is how I imagine it: It would be identical to the “Projects” section but it would be it’s own separate area. So each persons account would have “My Home,” “Projects,” “Jigs,” “Blog,” Buddies,” etc. On the Home Page there would be a little “Jigs” section right under the “Projects” section and it would show the latest three Jigs p...

Workshop operational tips. #2: 3D Printing in the Workshop

02-02-2017 08:46 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 28 comments »

While this topic doesn’t strictly fit into the guidelines of timber product, it does incorporate the processing of said prerequisite, however, to err on the side of veto wizards I decided to blog instead of projecting it. We need to set the mood! Once upon a time there was this aging geriatric, living in Churchill Australia that was getting paranoid about dust inhalation into his alcohol infested body. He chose to purchase a Shop-Vac and attached a few tools to with the...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #23: Woodworking Jig AWARDS! BOW TIES! SPECIAL GUEST! Ohhhhhh ya baby!

06-19-2012 01:41 PM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Stumpy takes off his blue denim shirt and slips into a tuxedo for the biggest night of the Summer! The second, semi-annual “Stumpies” is the world’s first low budget, mostly random and poory produced awards show just for woodworkers, and this time we’re giving out prizes for the best woodworking jigs. Who will win? Who will walk away with a free subscripton to Shop Notes? Which of Stumpy’s dumb jokes will...

Getting the most from my router #1: About the author

12-16-2009 06:49 AM by TemplateTom | 22 comments »

Introducing Template Tom the name I was given by my students when giving lessons on the use of the router at the Association for the Blind woodworking group. I was asked to look after for a year after I had been doing some volunteer work for three years previous. The best Class I have ever taught. Average age of the group was 36-82 years of age. A little back ground to consider as it helps to know ‘Who is making such a post’ I began an apprenticeship in Carpentry and Joinery wa...

Rivet Nut...! What...? How...? Where...?

09-25-2018 02:13 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 21 comments »

Boys and Girls, While window shopping in my local men’s shoe shop (tool shop), I came across what looked like a more user friendly pop rivetter. After some dumb questions, I was informed it was a Rivet Nut Setter. Qué…???... I asked the salesman to speak into my good eye. He informed me it was a tool for inserting metal threads into thin metal (sheet metal) using a pop rivet principle. Now I’m not here to spruik a brand (that’s why it’s here and not under Reviews) but to make ...

I wish I was that smart...

11-22-2007 08:47 AM by Blake | 19 comments »

Has anybody noticed how the half-dozen or so major woodworking stores have been getting their product ideas straight from Shopnotes and similar magazines? Well, VTwoody has in his blog about a Finger/box joint jig, and so did mski when he pointed it out on my Ripping Jig. It seems that every time a ww magazine comes out with plans for a new jig, it shows up in the catalogs LIKE CLOCKWORK just a few months later. It is soooooooo annoying!!! But it is only annoying because I didn’...

Vacuum series #1: Plexiglass Jigs

07-12-2007 09:06 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 19 comments »

I was thinking whether or not to make this a continuation of the veneering bog, however many items here have more to do with vacuum systems, than veneering. Hence a new Blog! Photo one is a Demilune Hall Table top jig. Photo two is a 30 inch long tee square which we use for biscuiting and routing duties. We make marks on the blue tape, were the biscuits go. When were done we replace the tape. Photo three is an 8” square that we use to biscuit cabinet sides on. P...

The Saga Continues #6: The Wonderful World of Jigs - according to Fred

04-27-2007 05:22 AM by fred | 18 comments »

I love making jigs. It is a great sense of confidence and actually takes longer to make them then it does to use them. I like to build things in the shop and making jigs is fun. I want to share some of them with you. Yes, I know there is a forum for jigs, but it has been 36 days since anyone posted in it. My first jig was a finger joint jig. On my recent making of a jewelry box I made a hinge mortising jig. When I was making cabinet for the dining room and the entertainme...

Jigs #2: Multi Position Jigs

07-24-2007 04:20 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

Making better use of you time includes making jigs that can be used in different ways, or positions. The first series of photos show the jig used to cut the dovetail slot into the post, to receive the legs. This had a knob to tighten to prevent the post from spinning. The second set of photos were the jig for carving the post. This too, proved to be very helpful. It has boards on the back side that fit snugly over my bench top, while held tight in the vise. On the e...

Kitchen table

09-30-2017 08:24 PM by AandCstyle | 17 comments »

Apparently, LumberJocks is adding links to advertising that I didn’t include. The only links I added in this blog are on the word “design” and “Talarico Hardwoods” Obviously, we wanted a great looking table so after a bit of searching, I found a design= that we both like. I have read about Talarico Hardwoods and since we are relatively close, I thought it would be a fun trip to see what he has to offer. OMG!! I was in heaven, a kid in a candy store, what c...
