  3. GRR-Ripper type Pushblock

    GRR-Ripper type Push-block I wanted to rip some really thing strips and I had no pushblock suitable for such cuts. The GRR-Ripper is well known and how good it is, so I thought to try build a similar pushblock that could handle the job. This is my prototype made out of completely scrap pieces...
  4. Shopmade Rip-Snorter Push Block (Grr-Ripper)

    For some reason I have been doing more jigs than a Irish Folk Festival lately. Maybe it's because I retired less than two years ago and finally have the time to enhance the capabilities of my shop. Here's the latest, a push block, The Rip-Snorter: The center block is fully adjustable. It...
  5. Flower Pots

    I made these flower pots as Christmas gifts. I got the idea from watching Steve Ramsey make them on his YouTube channel Woodworking for Mere Mortals. They are made of mahogany and maple.

  7. Grr-ripper

    This is my entry for the "Daily Top 3." The funny thing is, while researching the creation of this super-duper fancy push block, all of the other ones people made all made it into the "Daily Top 3."

  12. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    The center section of my GRR-Ripper recently stopped sliding smoothly in-between the left and right sides. I took the entire thing apart & cleaned everything. It didn't help. If it were made out of wood you could suggest that it expanded & warped itself out of true. That shouldn't and...

    Hardware Rack In the process of organizing the shop I had definite need of hardware storage. I had an old dresser that I revamped and used it for the larger parts, but the small stuff was overwhelming. I had 5 generic boxes and bought 5 more plano 3700 boxes to sort everything into. Here's a...
