  1. Caliper

    I had several micrometers but did not have a caliper of the right size for a project I am about to begin on my lathe. Using some scrap material from my shop I put together a little caliper that I believe will work for me. First I cut out the pieces on my scroll saw and drilled a hole for the...
  2. Automated Pimped Routertable

    Automated Router Table I built my third router table with all the bells and whistles I had missed on the previous versions, during my years of woodworking. This build included some automation, but the biggest improvement ( in my opinion) is the flip up trimmers. Video in the bottom of the...
  3. Homemade Fully Automatic Table Saw

    After 10 years of service on my first home built table saw, it was time for an upgrade. The old saw did not have any trunnions, and the lift was getting somehow a little sticky. Here is a picture of the old workhorse: This time however, I wanted to go all in on making it fully automatic...
  4. Camera Boom Mounted on Ceiling

    I've been making videos of my projects lately and needed a better way to position the camera than on a tripod. I've made a camera boom that's mounted on the ceiling of my shop. It's made of plywood and a few pieces of oak. View the video on YouTube by clicking here. Don't forget to subscribe...
  5. Wooden coping saw

    For a while I have been looking for a suitable Coping saw. But all awailable, even the Bacho ones, had sloppy steel spring frames that was too "bendy". And after seeing how Paul Sellers use his on the push stroke so that the lines are not obscured by breaking wood fibres, a stiff frame became a...
  6. Shopmade Layout Dividers

    I finally finished these up after a short break. The last little bit was completed in short 5 minute bursts during periodic breaks in diaper changes and feedings (i.e. late night time in the shop). I wanted a pair of dovetail layout dividers and for some unknown reason I decided to make a pair...
  7. Shopmade Bar/Pipe clamps

    Building some cabinets, and not having the proper length clamps, got me thinking I needed some of those. I was given 150 feet of 1" galvanized steel pipes at work, and figured this could be used. Also got some 40mm oak countertop cut offs that was suitable. Clamps are made like a bar clamp, but...
  8. Woodturning
    I wanted a thin parting tool but I didn't really want to work real hard at it re doing an old saw blade so I put the idea on the back burner. But today I was dumpster diving and found a table knife (not a butter knife) and I thought to myself I wonder if this will work for a parting tool, table...
  9. Hand Tools
    Hi all, So I picked up this vise for pretty cheap. I did a little research beforehand, and determined it was one of those Studley style piano makers vise. Don W and Chris Schwarz did some blog posts about these when they were doing research for their Studley book (hopefully Don sees this and can...
