  1. Homemade Router Guide Bushing Pin Wrench

    I don't know about you, but for me holding guide bushings while I thread the ring nut from under is a pain, particularly the smaller ones ! For my wrench I've chosen a HDF floor board for its density and its durability and drilled a 3/4" (18mm) hole using a spade bit at the drill press. Then...
  2. Keep my Dowel material in the Gutter.

    Hey, where do you keep your Dowel stock? I keep mine in the Gutter. I've got the 4' piece of plastic Gutter with ends. I put them on, at first, 4 legs that allowed to be parallel when it up or down. Later I changed the legs for Drawer Guides. I can pull it down and pull it closer to me...
  3. My Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench

    It was very interesting to see Drew's Ultimate Tablesaw Cabinet posted a few days ago. Apparently he and I were working on similar projects over the holiday break. Here's what I call my Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench. It's based on the Paulk design and incorporates many ideas I picked from...
  4. Leopard Wood and Curly Maple Computer Desk

    My wife asked me to build a small, low profile stand where she could set her computer, printer, and speakers while she is working in her craft room. The idea was not to have a desk to work at, but a small area to set her computer equipment out of the way of whatever project she was working on...

  6. More recycled wood end tables

    More cycled wood end tables. Made from Oak shipping pallets and very old fir posts for the legs. I finished them with a oil stain, and polyurethane.

    Just thought I'd start listing some of the sources I've come across for jig parts. For example, when I look for ratcheting knobs, Rockler shows up over and again, with ones for about five dollars each. Not bad, in the scheme of things, but it seems one should be able to do better. I came...

    Just wondered if anyone has information on the status of RTS Engineering. They put out a Self-centering guide and Multi-position guide for the Domino. I've emailed through the site several times and received no response. http://www.dominoguide.com/

    i did a search but couldnt find this here on LJs….. here is a link to a newly designed compound miter saw from Bosch! LINK they have removed the guide rails and replaced them with a pivoting ball bearing arms! looks like a pretty innovative design too me! also appears to save some space behind...

    I'm replicating and extending and existing wainscoting, wiping around a wall into another room. I need to machine a flute in the middle of a 4" wide members that runs vertical on the wall. (Posts) The fluting is only in the middle of the board, The board is 48" long, and the fluting needs to be...

    What do you do when the pot metal guides on your band saw disintegrate and the manufacturer isn't making replacements anymore? The saw was a Craigslist $100 buy and new Carter guides are almost as much as a new saw. I went to a fabricator and they wanted more than $300 to make a new set. If...

    I am considering upgrading my Jet 14" bandsaw by installing the Carter ball bearing blade guides. I have a couple questions for those who already own these guides. 1. The basic guide system comes with a short blade guard intended for a saw without a riser block. Carter folks tell me that for my...

    Got my Grizzly 531 bandsaw a couple weeks back. Adjusting blade guides results in the usual "oh hell no, I don't wanna" thing. More so because I have to grab one of the two or three Allen wrenches and loosen the locks to move the wheels in or out. Did I mention I don't like having to find ANY...

    So I've done a lot of research, and I haven't found this question. If it has already been discussed, please let me know. If you were going to buy a bandsaw primarily for making bandsaw boxes, which bandsaw would it be? My impression from what I've read is that tabletop models don't have the...

    Trying to get back in the swing - new project OK - so I'm finally getting back to doing things. Small stuff mostly and easy things. So I'm thinking of making a cutting board for my sister-in-law. A board for cutting bread. She makes the best homemade bread!! Anyway - this is what I'm trying to...

    Starting my fly rod - finding materials including birch bark I am setting off to make my first fly rod (sorry, graphite not a bamboo rod - one thing at a time) with the goal of leveraging my years of woodworking by turning a unique grip. I am also making a rod for my older brother as well. I...

    Shelf Pin Hole Jig As those who have dealt with it know, keeping all four sets of shelf pin holes at the same height as their counterparts is critical, and can be difficult, without a jig. You can buy some nice jigs downtown. Alternatively, you can make your own using aluminum, acrylic, wood...
  18. Jigs & Fixtures
    So far I've been doing all my cutting with my miter saw and my Skilsaw. Tomorrow I am going to pick up my table saw. It's a used Craftsman bench top. I'm getting it from a friend. He has it all tuned up for me and I can't wait to pick it up. I'm pretty sure that he said it was a 10" blade. Other...
  19. Wood & Lumber
    Hello fellow jocks, I've considered for a while now buying some lumber that is outside of what I'm accustomed to working with (read: exotics). Rather than jumping on here every time that I'm thinking about placing an order and polluting the forum with questions about certain woods, I was...
