  1. Super simple and easy Band Saw Circle Jig

    I came up with a super simple and easy jig for the band saw because I needed to make two 24" circles and I didn't want a router jig. The pictures above show some of the circles I've cut and the actual jig. I posted an Instructable about how to do it at...
  2. Christmas Presents 2 - Wine Bottle Balancers

    I decided to make a few of the popular wine bottle balancers as Christmas gifts. Once I had the dimensions figured out, I realized it would be easy to make a large batch of these at once, so I made 12 total. I started from dimensions I found online, then tweaked it until I was satisfied. The...
  3. Band saw circle cutter

    The batmobile bed project required repeatable large circles for the wheels and rims, so I decided it was time to build a "proper" circle jig. This has been considered often enough that I had already surfed for plans and picked out one that had the features I liked. This one runs in the miter...
  4. Adjustable Bandsaw Circle Jig

    I built a circle cutting jig for bandsaw. This has been on my "to build" list for quite some time and I'm super happy that I finally got around to making one. My jig is largely inspired by a circle jig George Vondriska made. I loved his adjustable sliding dovetail feature and wanted to...
  5. Bandsaw template guide

    I saw a very similar guide in Woodsmith and have made only minor modifications. It is easy to make and guides the cut quickly along a template to make fast, accurate, repeatable cuts on the bandsaw. Previously I would follow a drawn line and try to cut very close to the line. I did so very...
  6. Bandsaw Multi Sled

    I will need a circle cutter for my new swivel Adirondack bar chairs, so in designing mine using various techniques from others I have seen, I settled on a T track system that will allow a longer track in case I need a large coffee table. Using 1/4×2" connector pointed end bolts from Home Depot...
  7. Fraternal Twins

    These are actually just test or practice pieces … the two were constructed out of a single set of 3/4" rings, split in half on the bandsaw. Each is about 2-3/4" high and 3-1/2" in diameter. The rings are 50/50 maple and black walnut. The jig is based on one by ThePapa1947 ... here's a link to...
  8. Octagon tool handle - bandsaw jig

    Octagon / square tapered tool handles bandsaw jig When I saw Pask Makes jig for tapered octagon tool handles and knew I needed one of those, first of all I like to use this type of handle on my carving tools, second I find them beautiful, third I am forging a lot of tools now, so it will save...
  9. Bandsaw crosscut log sled (think finger safety)

    Ok, accidentally clicked on one of those horrific woodworking posts a while back where a small slip-up resulted in some graphic finger pics. It was enough I guess to get me to go ahead and make this simple safety sled for crosscutting logs on my bandsaw. I do a lot of woodturning, so my...
  10. A slab Gage for the Band saw log slicer/Resaw Jig

    Not long ago I reported on a method to re saw fairly large logs on the band saw. The system works great with one exception: It takes too long to orient the next cut. To improve this situation I made yet another jig that I place the BS sled on and Line up. As you can see there is a vertical...
  11. Wine Cork Cutting Jig

    WINE CORK CUTTING ON A BAND SAW WITH A JIG [1.0] To make this jig, you need a piece of wood no less than 1-1/4" square on the sides and about 5" long, which happen to be the measurements of my jig. [1.1] The measurements of the jig can be varied. As long as you have enough room to drill the...
  12. Jigs & Fixtures
    After seeing what others had done using three different colors of wood to make 3-D patterns out of wood, I thought I'd try my hand at it. To aid in the process, I made this jig for my band saw. Of course, one could vary it a bit for the table saw. I extended the miter slot guide about six...
  13. Blogs
    Lumber Rack I learned a long time ago that there are many ways to do just about anything imaginable. Some work better than others - but the main thing is that they do the job. I've decided to write a brief blog from time to time describing something that's 'worked for me' in my shop. If you...
