  1. Drill press table

    My version of a useful accessory for your DP. Just a couple pieces of plywood glued together, with some T-track set into it. There is a sacrificial 4" x 4" square of plywood in the middle to make tearout a thing of the past. I've found it very handy and I don't know why more manufacturers...
  2. CNC cut cherry hold downs and knobs.

    I got a little carried away with these. I was looking for a simple solution to hold things down on the drill press table and ended up with these. The cherry was salvaged from an old table top that had warped badly. The pivot is a maple dowel. I made a set of 8 to use for other jigs. The...
  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. Simple Cross Cut Sled V2

    I posted my cross cut sled last week and since then I have made a couple of improvements. First, I added a handle to the front to help push it and also the 2- 2×4's in the middle of the handle hide the blade to make it a bit safer. Also I noticed when cutting short pieces (less than 3 or 4...
  5. Wood hold downs - step by step build. (post)

    Wood hold downs step by step build. For as long as I can remember, these bad boys have been on my to do list, but for some reason they took ten years to be realized… Better late than never. So I am more than happy now, especially by the drill press, where they are most often needed, but also...

  7. Hold fast - that you can easily make (post)

    Hold fast wedge and twist updating an old idea. Hi all, I made these updates out of frustration today. A wedge for fast clamping on my existing DIY hold fast and a DIY flip end stop, that can be made from wood, so no special hardware are needed any more This post is from the blog...
  8. Letter holder

    This is one I quite like. For a few months last year (2014) I was "temporarily between jobs" as it is called. I would call it 'unoccupied' but this project kept me fairly occupied. I made this for my grandparents (in-laws) for their 50th wedding anniversary. I found some scrapwood in the back...
  9. K.I.S.S. Hold Downs

    I have tried a few different types of shopmade hold downs that I've seen online over the last year or so that have a profile that allows use without spacers on the backside. One excellent example is this LJ project. I made a few different sizes with geometries along those lines to "test" but I...
  10. Custom storage drawers

    This is a simple storage drawer system. The top drawer is for CD's, DVD, etc… The other drawers have movable dividers for storing items of multiple sizes. Construction consists of oak plywood with solid oak edges. Drawer slides are accuride.
  11. I Refuse To Pay #2

    Like an earlier post http://lumberjocks.com/projects/22802 I needed some hold downs for a new project and just could not rationalize the woodcraft price. So I went looking at the local big box store and found an answer. Bought a clamp for I believe under $2, drilled out the rivet, cut the...
  12. SMALL PARTS HOLD DOWN (EDIT )

    A week ago SERGE/Bricofleur posted a hold down that I thought was a handy device . Thanks for the inspiration Serge ! Well this is my version which is different in several ways . I used wooden springs with sandpaper pads to hold the material being cut on both sides of the saw blade and also...
  13. Compound Angle Cutting Jig with Hold Downs for a Radial Arm Saw

    I have developed a program to calculate cutting dimensions and angles for building 3 dimensional stars. 3-D Star Blog. Trying to cut narrow pieces for the stars at steep angles and bevels on my radial arm saw required some assistance. I designed a simple jig that would clamp into the table in...
  14. Table Saw Sled

    I am getting ready to make some holiday gifts and I thought a table saw sled would be a great way to improve the quality of my work. I have wanted to tackle this project for a while but never could quite find the time. With money being tight right now I searched the internet for diy ideas for...
  15. Drill press table & fence

    This drill press table is made up of 2 layers of 3/4" MDF laminated with white Formica. I used the blue anodized t-track, hold downs and hardware from Rockler. Finished off the edges with some leftover scraps of Lyptus. I should have made one of these years ago!!!!
  16. Bronze Bench Dogs

    I needed some bench dogs and was having a hard time finding some for a 7/8 square hole. I made these out of a very wear resistant bronze alloy. I purposely machined the front and back a little rough in order to keep them from slipping in the hole and to give good grip on the workpiece. The...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello everyone. I have just completed turning a staved bowl from Purpleheart and Maple and was wondering what finish you would suggest. I want it to SHINE when done. I have on hand, Wipe on poly, Tung Oil/Varnish, Wax, Spray Poly, and Mineral Oil. Could purchase new finish if needed but money...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    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...
  19. Finishing
    Hey guys. I've never finished with anything other than poly or lacquer. I think those may bind up the links on this watch when dry. I'm looking for a finish that will make this walnut and cherry watch pop but won't bind the links. Any suggestions?
