SawStop Assembly #5: Bob Van Dyke's Multi-Purpose Rip Fence JIG

05-07-2016 03:51 AM by HappyHowie | 7 comments »

Since I now have a new SawStop PCS table saw I have been looking for a good example or plan so I can make a universal rip fence JIG for cutting rabbets and tenons on my new table saw. Just this past week someone published on YouTube an old video that was used in a Fine Woodworking Magazine article published in December 2012. The article covered a rip fence JIG Bob Van Dyke designed for his SawStop’s rip fence. He bolts onto the JIG sacrificial boards for cutting rabbets and raised pa...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #14: Transition from Dovetails to Rabbet Joints

03-13-2015 01:44 AM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

If thy dovetail offend thee, cut it off! I decided to not use these dovetails that I have been practicing on.

So I was only able to finish cutting the dovetails on the side panels and the rabbets for the top and bottom. The stopped dados will have to wait until later. Oh … and I finished the removable shelf.

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #8: Back Panel Rabbets, Galoot Style

04-28-2012 02:13 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 25 comments »

EDIT: Updated to eliminate PB BS. Smitty A short update…. I’ve decided the back will be 1/2” thick, and to set the backing material into the carcase means rabbets. The two side pieces get stopped rabbets; we’ll do those after getting the process down on the top piece. Disassembled the cabinet (in dry fit mode since last installment) and headed to the bench. Set the 1/2” measurement to the fence and the depth stop of the #78, applied wax to the sole and f...
