  1. Home made Disc Sander

    I wanted a way to sand outside corners smoothly and quickly. Looking through one of Danny Proulx's books I came across his plans for this DIY version. Went scrounging at my local machine repair shop for a used motor with the right RPM and found one for a bargain price. Everything else is 3/4"...
  2. Homemade Vari-grind Jig

    The Oneway Wolverine Grinding jig is a must for grinding your bowl gouges but I didn't want to pay $55 for one. When I was at the Baltimore Woodworking show, I took pictures and measurements of the one they had one display and tried to replicate the parts/dimensions. It holds my gouges tightly...

  5. Home Made RV Trailer

    Here I want to share with you a project I built several years ago. Recently, when I saw these pictures, I spontaniously said that I should share them with my LJ's friends. I made it from scratch, meaning that I started by purchasing 20' long 1-1/2'' X 1-1/2'' angle irons and 2'' square tubings...

  8. Homemade Clamps

    I made these homemade clamps a while ago and didn't post it on lumberjocks just because i wanted to see if the pine would hold and i have to say 2 months later and they still are perfect, so this is great because you can make these clamps as long as you want and quite cheaply. If you want to see...
  9. My Wooden Table Saw Fence

    As a hobbyist on a very tight budget, I have to look for bargains in used tools. So when I got the opportunity to pick up a vintage Craftsman saw for $35 to replace my el cheapo jobsite saw, I jumped. Of course the downside of most of these old saws is the frustrating fence (if it's even still...
  10. Small Parts Holding Clamps

    Sometimes I use a miniature Jorgensen type clamp to hold small parts. Sometimes they don't feel quite right for what I'm working with. I came up with these for the price of a T-nut, a little allthread, a bolt or screw, a couple washers, ad a nut and some scrap plywood. Details for making...
  11. Homemade Drill Press from a Handheld Drill!

    THIS PROJECT ALSO CONTAINS METAL. If I'm not supposed to post it here (a forum topic/blog?), please let me know, and I'll move it! I've come to the point where can't build more advanced woodworking projects, due to the lack of a drill press, and they're too expensive. After many hours of...
  12. Shop Air Cleaner

    I acquired an older furnace blower saw it as a perfect opportunity to make my shop a little cleaner. The unit itself is pretty large at 33"x22"x19" tall. I have two 16"x20" filters on each side and the air blows out the top. I splurged and installed a one hour timer on it. It's mostly made out...

  14. Table Saw Dovetail Jig

    - - Here's the table saw dovetail jig I wanted to build for years. I'm very pleased with the results. Besides that, it didn't cost a dime since only MDF scraps were used to build it. My shown second test piece is not a perfect looking joint but it was tight and was assembled with elbow...
  15. Wooden Sunglasses

    As a result of the request of several viewers, a few weeks ago I began painstakingly crafting these solid wood sunglasses, out of what I believe is Australian Red Cedar, but I could be wrong. I used the lenses from a cheap pair of promotional sunglasses, which surprisingly offer a little bit...

  17. DIY Tablesaw Fence

    Here is my cheapskate tablesaw fence! I cannot claim the design on this one, though. Thanks John! The 1/4" aluminum U-channel cost me $30 at a metal shop. I cut a short section off to use as the fence and locking plate. The rest is covered with 3/4" melamine to use as a fence. The front...
  18. Tracing and Copying Tool

    When I saw the ad of this tool on Facebook I fell in love with it. With such tool you can trace or copy (replicate) any 4 sides polygon, any contour and any angle. That's handy and I had to make my own ! (think self-sufficient and DIY). One by one I made the counterbored slots at the router...
  19. Homemade Self Cleaning Blast Gate

    Homemade Self Cleaning Blast Gate I needed a couple of blast gates that could fit onto the Y of my dust collector. I did not want to use any of those plastic ones as they have problems in cleaning and leaking, so I decided to build my own. The type I chose to build was the self cleaning type...
  20. 16" Wooden Bandsaw - loads of photos

    I've finally completed my wooden bandsaw. It follows the Matthias Wandel plans fairly closely. It has 15.5" left of the blade and just a hair under 12" of resaw. The frame and many of the parts are poplar; there is also some walnut in there (I had a bunch of walnut on hand). It has an older 1...
