  3. "THE" Router Sidekick

    Lately I made a new, longer and wider jig similar to the former ones I made a while ago (photo 1) so it would be quick and easy to mill slots, dadoes, grooves and rabbets everywhere without fussy adjustments and measurements, thanks to the 1" guide bushing. Trace where to mill, clamp the jig...
  4. Blade Box Redux

    Ten years ago, I was fretting over the state of my tablesaw blade storage, er, uh, there was none! I had them in a flat file drawer with sheets of cardboard to separate them. As I would swap one for a sharp one or one of a different use, I'd have to do a blade shuffle and be careful not to...
  5. Plastic crate upgrading

    This was done for one handyman or house fixes/repair worker. He keeps all his tools in a van, so he needed to organize all tools and spare parts to be more accessible and tidy. He bought 8 plastic crates with interior measure 57×37x11cm and asked me to make him some compartments. Since those...

Hardboard face with T-slot...

  9. Woodworking Skill Share
    So I'm a bit short on tools in general - I don't have a table saw, or a jointer/planer, etc. I'm picking up a router in the next few weeks and I have a project in mind for it already. I'm putting together a set of shelves for my closet. Very basic, will consist of pre-finished 3/4" plywood like...

    Regarding the above pic.. I am creating trivets on the tablesaw using a 1/2" Dado stack.. the design has alternating dadoes and grooves I am getting a lot of tear out in the inner part of the trivet and I am wondering should a cut with the grain first and then across the grain to minimize the...

    A link below in case it's not clear what I'm talking about, at minute 3.25. I wondered if you guys consider this a dangerous cut. I.e. if you were on your last piece of expensive wood making a Christmas gift on Christmas Eve, would you be doing your Vs like this, or shaving down each side...
