  1. Jigsaw Edge Cutting Support

    If you own and use a jigsaw, you know as I do that this tool is not stable went cutting close to edges, as for rounding over a corner or make a cut-out for a leg as example, and that because the base doesn't make full contact with the workpiece. Here's the support I came up with. It will change...
  2. My Tilting Router Jig + Straight Bit = Raised Panels & More

    I'd like to share my tilting router jig which allows to mill unique edge profiles using simple standard router bits. I believe the only limit is the user's imagination ! The tilting base pivots inwards on a piano hinge to mill edge profiles and outwards to mill inboard edge profiles (two...
  3. Trucker Gnome

    I made a "pharmacy" gnome for my daughter to have when she worked at a pharmacy in college. Her friends liked it and one requested a trucker gnome, since he worked for a trucking company. I didn't think hew was serious, but he has mentioned it since then, so this is what I made for him as a...
  4. No More Tipping Trim Router

    Trim routers are great tools, but the base is so small that they have the tendancy to tip over when milling edges. While one hand holds the router itself and steers, there is not much room to grab the tool with the other hand to hold it flat. And when holding such small narrow base, fingers are...
  5. Toy Box for my niece!

    My niece's third birthday just came along and she needed a nice solid place to store all her toys! I personalized it with her name on the front and a piano hinge lid in the back. Most of the body is made with pine barn boards (some tongue and groove, sides were plain 10" wide pine). Lots of wood...
  6. Work Station with Knife Scabbard

    This is my normal Chopping Block with a new twist. The client wanted to have his two favourite knives on the block. I came up with this hinged scabbard to hold them safely. The scabbard is mounted on 2 SS pins and can be removed easily for cleaning. There is a set of wrought Iron hooks on...
  7. Reveal, Measuring and Depth Gauges

    I made different sized rabbets on all edges of three 3/4" MDF square blocks to position the screws on my projects for a more appealing and symmetric final product. They are also great for trim installation. You can clearly see the different width rabbets for an excellent measuring from the...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I bought the Rockler State Park Signmaker's Templates and I'm trying to make a sign exactly like the one they show in the product picture and I could use a little help… I'm trying to figure out the best way to cut out the small notch at each of the four corners of the sign, and do so in a way...

    Test Drive The first installment of this blog is here due to LJ blogging technical issues… To make sure the dimensions are correct for our new table, we decided to do a little test drive. It didn't hurt that we're having eight people over for a Fourth of July BBQ. We ran over to the big box...

    Introduction, Legs, and Battens My sweetie told me that we need a new table for the portale (it's like a patio, but in New Mexico), because we didn't have enough for everyone to have a place to set their drink if we have neighbors over for cocktails. Since I like cocktails, I got cracking...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    Since oak is a bit splintery, would you round over the edges of a board first or cut the dadoes, then round over?
  12. Joinery
    At the end of each pass on my router table I am getting small imperfections where it looks like the bit is cutting a little (1/32 - 1/16 in) more than the rest of the pass. I've tried moving the fence in and out, but I just can't get them to go away. I have using feather boards in both the...
