  2. Fine adjustable stopper

    Instead of simple wood block and a clamp, I made a bit complex stopper with fine adjustable capability. As turning the knob, the center bolt push/pull the wood block. Two pull springs are used to kill the play of the bolt and two pistons work as the guide to keep the block flush. Adjustable...
  3. Tablesaw Micro Adjustment

    Boys and Girls, Soon after I purchased my contractors saw, I fitted it with a biesemeyer fence. Whether it's bad tuning, loose tolerances or just delicate hands, I found that my fists were growing bruises upon the bruises from banging the fence to make that "micro-adjustment" only to have to...
  4. Cabinet for Homeowners Association Pool

    I live in a subdivision that has a pool and tennis courts. Our Homeowners Association wanted to provide the members with a freezer and a refrigerator to be kept at the pool, so they decided to find a cabinet shop to design and build one. When I learned what they wanted, I agreed to make the...
  5. Zebrawood knife handles

    This was a fun project that I did for a gift. I bought the blade from an online supplier and fit the handles to it with epoxy and brass rod. The biggest challenge was getting the holes drilled precisely through the handles. Everything else was done with hand files, which took some time but...

    I am still trying to learn the proper use and set up of hand planes and I am having some trouble. I am attempting to use the method of setting the plane on paper shims (not under the throat of course) to set the depth, but once I tighten down the cap iron (cam action) it greatly increases the...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Forgive me if this isn't the right area: I believe the question is about hardware. I have cabinet doors with new hinges and some doors won't fully close. I don't know how to fix it. These are face frame cabinets with partial inset doors. The doors were recently painted - the old hardware was...

  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I was just given a old Craftsman RAS with bunch of accessories. I got it set up and running over the weekend. After a few test crosscuts, I noticed that wherever the arm is locked at, the arm wiggles a couple of degrees. I spent a good chunk of time trying to find something to tighten/adjust...

    Finding nails in re-used wood [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] When I first started collecting free wood from along the street, it occurred to me to protect my power tools by making sure as possible that all the nails were out of the boards. If memory serves, Norm Abram placed this idea in my...
  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I'm making drawers for some cabinets, and the plans I'm using have me using butt joints between the drawer sides and front/back pieces. I want to delete the butt joints and make them dovetails instead, but I can't reason out how the dimensions should change. Currently, the front/back pieces...
