  2. Brass Try Squares

    Well it's Christmas time again 2013…....As in my earlier project posts, I make tools for my three sons, brother-in-law, & a friend. The Try Squares plans came from ShopNotes issue 150. The first & last picts. are of the prototype. As I was making them, I ran into a lot of problems, i.e...
  3. Bowl Depth Marking Gauge

    All Right! another shop made tool project to cross off my list. This is another scrap lumber project. It is made from a piece of 2×4 and 3/8 dowel. The face of the gauge is 11 3/4" (size of scrap piece). You could measure a bowl about 11". The dowel is 9", giving a max depth of about 8". I...

    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...
  5. Woodworking Skill Share
    Okay, I'm a metal worker who's fallen in love with figured woods, most especially those showing chatoyance (shimmer, popping, ripplies, whatever). I've researched mightily, and found the following in my quest to make it something you can fall into, something that shifts and dazzles as you move...
  6. Designing Woodworking Projects
    So, I'm making two chests of drawers, 50"t by 30"w by 19"d. I'm getting ready to order the drawer slides, and I'm curious, is there any commonly accepted reason most of the drawers I have seen are around 13"? While looking at other dressers and chests, I noticed that most drawer depths are...

    Delta Shopmaster Bandsaw - SM400 - A Budget Bandsaw So I finally made an excuse to buy a new tool - a bandsaw to be precise. The problem is that I can not foresee a need for a heavy-duty model, nor can I justify its expense at this time. For that money, I could simply ask my wood supplier to...

    I just made a Dado Jig and it works great as a guide, however, it brings up a question. How do I determine a proper depth to cut a dado? I'm building a shelving unit for my shop out of 1×10 pine for storing small power tools, sanders, router etc. The wood is 3/4 actual thickness. Is there a rule...
  10. Joinery
    I am building a version of Norm's router table from the Creston WW plans. For the drawers, the plans call for 1/2" x 3/8" dadoes in 1/2" stock. That seems a bit much to me. I may end up decreasing that depth some partially dependent on the LJ wisdom I may receive :-) My gut feeling is that...

    I have a Hitachi 15-Amp 10" Table Saw I purchased from Lowes about a year ago and I haven't really done anything serious on it yet but I am being asked to start some major projects. The fence on the system has worked just well but I have tried to add some jigs to it IE: Raised panel and dado...
