The Super Sled #2: VIDEO - Mitering and Crosscut Sled

03-08-2009 05:17 AM by John Nixon | 21 comments »

To download a measured drawing or to see the full photo gallery, click here:http://www.eaglelakewoodworking.com/post/Super-Sled-Crosscut-and-Miter-Sled.aspx Project Description: I just completed a two part video series on how I made my new table saw sled. I’ve named the new sled the “Super Sled”. The Super Sled combines two of my best shop jigs! I love my original crosscut sled, so when the voters at Eagle Lake asked me to make a video about how to make that s...

Bowling Alley Workbench #10: The Top #2: Flat and Shine

07-26-2009 05:50 AM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

I had some good progress on the top today. it actually started a couple of days ago when I went ahead, cleaned up the buffer strip, and main top, and glued them up together, I also milled the end cap part (which is on top of the clamps in the photo): I also ground down one of the corner of the Lee-Valley Tailvise Nut so that I’ll be able to install the vise higher up and the nut will have less interference with the table top: I’m not a machinist, nor work with metal much (al...

MDB #4: The Age of the Machines - Final milling and profiling

08-02-2010 03:43 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here Once everything was glued up into a single slab, it was time to plane it flat and parallel. one of the strips I jointed happen (don’t ask me how…lol) to be jointed off square, throwing the last 4-5 strips in the glueup off flat (mostly flat). I was tired at this point, and just figured I’m not going to rejoint it, but will pay the price and plane it all down at the cost of having a...

Segmented Fail (?) -- 20% rant, 80% cry for help

11-26-2011 09:22 AM by dspahn | 14 comments »

So after watching some videos on segmented bowl construction and turning, I decided to give it a shot while I wait for my cole jaws to arrive in the mail. I actually went to a lumber place and bought a few pieces: some walnut, alder, cherry, and something with the word “african” in it… maybe mahogany, but I’m not 100% sure. And then, after I got home, whinging internally about spending $40 on an amount of wood you could maybe build a desk for a barbie doll out of, ...

MDB #1: Milling S3S ...yes, triangles.

08-02-2010 03:32 AM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here In Highschool I always doodled (I still am). and one of my favorite things was to use the squares on the math papers to form different geometries – mostly with triangles. as I was playing along, I discovered that I could form a star of david (Magen David) and that formation has stuck with me ever since. When I was introduced to the idea of making cutting boards out of wood, I always wanted ...

Miter Sled on the Cheap

03-26-2014 10:30 PM by Chris McDowell | 12 comments »

I have a few projects coming up that I need to make mitered corners for, like picture frames and such. I have not had much luck in the past with my miter saw. I guess the positive stops at 45 degrees are not perfect or something because I have aligned everything on it. I have been wanting to make a miter sled for quite some time now so I decided to just do it using whatever I have on hand. I will definitely remake this later on when I can afford proper materials, but at least I have som...

Tools #3: Incra Mitre Express / Incra 1000SE Mitre Gauge - VIDEO

06-02-2007 05:13 AM by mot | 12 comments »

I wanted to add to the mitre gauge posts. Wayne posted a photo tour of the Jessem System, and David posted initial impressions of the Kreg System. The incra 1000SE is seen here in the Incra Miter Express sled. Both are available at Woodpeck.com You can see the kerf where the mitre sled straddles the blade in the tablesaw allowing for the cutoff piece to be coplanar with the workpiece. This decreases the chance of the saw flinging the cutoff piece back. The Incra guage is adjutab...

Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

09-04-2010 08:25 AM by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

I haven't died ...

08-29-2007 07:57 PM by Obi | 10 comments »

Been busy making all sorts of things, and as they get finished I’ll post them. Recently I realized that my sled was 1/16th inch out of square. Thinking that it was the blade i made sure it was perfectly square to the fence. After making sure the fence was quare, i measured the sled and realized that 1/16th of an inch can make a horrific difference on how things glue up. So i went to work on a new sled. The old sled (posted) was a beginners sled, and needed improvement. No wonder I can m...
