  1. Repeating Curve Walking Sticks

    I try to do different projects to make sure I can justify my various tools. These are from 2×4's of cedar, redwood and fir. I simply draw out the pattern, cut it out with a jig saw, run up and down each side with a router and a 3/4" round over bit to make what, essentially, is just a very bent...
  2. Turned Off Center Door Stop

    For whatever reason, I decided to create a door stop. Perhaps it's a result of a subconscious longing for spring, when we can prop our doors open without getting snow in the house, or suffering flies that come with summer. Compound this with that I, like many, often find myself searching for...
  3. L-Square Stop & Depth Gauge

    L-square Stop - Depth Gauge - Table Saw Setup Tool I designed and built my L-square edge stop around 1984, when I became frustrated with using stops for setting up stair steps for the process. I wanted one which was quick to install and easy to use (e.g., moved smoothly along the edge). The...
  4. Off Center Turned Door Stops

    A while back, I turned a door stop off center to see what I got. I wanted something different than the hundreds of examples on the Net and I really liked the result. For that offset turning, I used a 2×6 of mahogany (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/298570). The other day, I was cleaning up and...
  5. Layout Tool Storage Racks

    I'm all over the board on what I do in my shop, so I have a significant and, seemingly, ever growing collection of layout tools. I had dedicated a 4'x8' section of wall space to storing and displaying them so I could spot what I needed for a given project with just a glance. It wasn't enough...
  6. Copper Clad Carving Mallet

    This copper clad mallet was built for the 2017 Lumberjocks Shop Made Tool Swap and was one of the several items I sent out. The mallet is apple wood, from a friend's Central Washington orchard, and is clad in thick wall copper pipe. The tolerance I set for the turned apple wood was tight...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am curious as to why all the Dust Deputy carts with vacuums, like the one below, have the Deputy on top of, rather than under the vacuums. If it were underneath, the hose could be shortened, for example. To better streamline my system (e.g., for my sand blast cabinet), I plan on drilling a...
  8. Jigs & Fixtures
    This is a simple jig to allow you to use your router to make wood covers for jar lids, regardless of the size of the factory lids. Alternately, you can use it to cut, for example, 1/8" indentations in circles and squares that will become cup coasters. This jig uses a piece of plywood with a...
  9. Finishing
    I have a gallon of Cactus Juice, but it's summer and my shop air conditioner can only keep my shop down around 85 to 88 on a 114 degree day. That means, to store my Juice, I need to bump off a college kid and steal his fridge (I'll needs to volunteers to assist me on that, she might be over...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Well, I ran an ad asking for free treadmills. Within a week I got a call and picked up my first one. Yesterday, about two weeks after the first, I got another call. I picked that critter up yesterday. The first unit came with a 10 amp, 90 volt DC motor. The second is a 10 amp too, but is...

    Kelly's Shop Karts This is about building simple, but VERY strong mobile shop carts using a single sheet of plywood. These will, easily, support 300 pounds. The one in the picture with a cabinet on top held nearly 500 pounds without so much as a creak or a groan. From start to finish...
