  1. Layout Multi-tool for Surprise Toolswap

    This tool was my contribution to the Surprise Toolswap we're just wrapping up. We had a great time in the swap and hope to see even more LJs in future ones! LJ Ripthorn is who I was assigned to ship my tool to. I hope he gets good use out of it! This tool was a result of just "winging it" on...
  2. Red oak, stock post candle holder

    I'm experimenting joining pieces together. I finally got my hands on some calipers and I am unusually addicted to them… Those two pieces fit like magic! The top is red oak, the bottom is some crappy lumber stock post, I liked the grain though (I used it in a few other pieces). I'm still...
  3. Australian Aboriginal Wood Spirit

    First attempt at relief carving a Wood Spirit ( don't really know if we have them in Australia) and hope to do more on the Australian Aboriginal theme. Carved on White Cedar it is 2'6" high. Any comment to help improve or suggestions would be gratefully accepted.
  4. fishing net cutting board

    I was visiting my wife's family last weekend, while there our niece was using of all things, a "PLASTIC" cutting board, I decided she needed an upgrade badly, so after getting home, I was trying to think of a design for her new cutting board, I came across a plan for a fishing net in Woodsmith...
  5. Table Saw blade measurer

    I was wanting to make sure that my table saw blade was square to my tracks, though all I had was a metal ruler and a digital caliper. I can extend the end and zero out the caliper to get the difference between the two. This saved so much frustration rather than having to use a metal rule.
  6. Digital Shop-made Height Gauge / Set-Up Gauge (Quick & Simple Design)

    There've been two other height gauges posted today: Serge: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/46577 Trevor: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/46565 I am offering a third option which I also use to find measurements (thickness, depth of dados, diameters (e.g. of a rod), etc.) of objects in addition...
  7. Hand Tools
    I found a few interesting things at a garage sale this weekend. First, a pair of dividers and an inside caliper. These were a little rusty and dirty, but cleaned up nicely with a citric acid bath and fine wire wheel in the drill (sorry, no "before" pics). The caliper has no maker name...

  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So, I built my first drawer box today (rabbet and groove joinery) and realized that I need some help in the measuring and set-up department. With that in mind I'm looking at buying some set-up blocks and a caliper. Right now, I'm leaning towards a 0.001" resolution vernier scale caliper...

    getting the exact measurements on a spindle using calipers.(turning) There was a project that i did once where i was making a matched set of 6 candle holders that had to be exactly the same. The problem was, i couldn't seem to get all of the candle sticks the right width. They were always too...

    Vape pen stand As an amputee I have intense phantom pain that only a relief vape can stop. If you lay them on their side all the juice pools on the side instead of at the base of the wick. The vape pens themselves have a small, tippy, footprint that easily falls over even if your hand is steady...

    How Did I Live Without You? Today I received the 6" dial caliper I ordered. I've been woodworking for 4 years and today feels like the first time I've actually known what something measured. Before I just held up a Starrett 6" rule to whatever I was measuring and went from there. Close enough...

    Calipers, the frugal way. --or-- I'm a complete tightwad, and here's proof. I'm pretty frugal. I had it drilled into me by my parents, who are also extremely frugal. Most of the time I'm grateful for it. Every now and then I'm just the tiniest bit ashamed. I'm not sure yet which category...
