  1. Simple Weathered Grey Side Table

    So I am making a wine barrel table that required a large donut shape. The inner circle that was left over was about 21" in diameter, so I bought some hairpin legs and stained in weathered grey. People seem to love this stain, and this project was just some scrap I had, and the hairpin legs I...
  2. 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...
  3. Baby Rattle

    I got this idea from delturcious. Thank you! The great thing about this project is that it can be made out of scrap. I glued two pieces of scrap Russian Birch plywood together and then cut them into blocks. I planes the pieces before gluing them together so that it looked like one piece of...
  4. 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...

  7. Trammels using magnets

    I was trying to think of some uses for rare earth magnets in the shop and it turns out they work great for trammel points because they make it so quick to adjust. I made a video showing some other uses for the magnets as well . //www.youtube.com/v/mVNwyKXcNNQ ?version=3&hl=en_US&rel=0

  11. Climbing Vine Lattice

    Wife and I finished this a few months back. I "borrowed" the idea from this forum, and want to express my appreciation to the original designer, but I've lost the name. Thank you. Since finishing this little piece of yard sculpture, the directions to our house have become: "and after...
  12. Circle Template

    I find that I draw a lot of circles and arcs in the shop. Every time I need a circle, I scurry around looking for the can or jar or bottle or washer or something that is just the right diameter. Usually, I settle for something close that, if I angle my pencil just right, will allow me to...

  15. Router Table circle/ring cutting jig (simple and quick)

    A neighbor stopped over and asked me to cut some rings in some 1/2" thick clear acrylic blanks. The inside edge of the rings will be lined with strip LED lights and then inserted behind the speakers on his boat. Accuracy was paramount as he wanted the outer edge of the rings to be flush with...
