  1. Projects It takes wood to make wood

    Shooting boards are necessary, simple, but can be a little tricky. The last one I made was never perfectly square. This time, I used Rex Krueger's basic design I like it. The permanent fence is almost exactly square and the adjustable replaceable fence can be shimmed to perfection. It was...
  2. Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts Make Kazoos

    I am Scout Leader with my son's Boy Scout Troop and as part of our big field day to recruit the older Cub Scouts into our Boy Scout Troop, I arrange a small woodworking project for the Cub Scouts (ages 6-11) to do. The Boy Scouts run the event, with adult supervision, and help the Cubs make the...
  3. Router Sled on the table saw

    I'm working on a couple of end tables, and I glued up the table tops (16" x 16") a while ago. The tops started to move and warp a little and weren't so flat anymore. I decided to build a router sled the other day to get them perfectly flat. The flattest reference surface I have in my shop is...
  4. Workbench Adaptation

    I actually did not build this bench. I did build the storage cabinet underneath it. Just simple drawers for storage of all of tools and all of the shop necessities. Also, there is a picture of my plane collection that resides in one of the drawers. The second photos is my son learning to use...
  5. $10 drill press table with Lasers

    I made this from items I already had. The biggest feature of this table are the 2 magnetic based lasers on each side of the drill press that were purchased at Harbor Freight at $4.99 each (this is where it cost me $10). I just love these lasers and see incorporating them into some other tools of...

  9. I CAN READ THIS -IT'S BIG !

    Just a sliding block I made to hold 2 framing squares together to act as a large caliper . I made this from 7/16" oak flooring scrap and some jatoba offcuts . To lock the squares together I use a simple quick clamp which provides a good lock and lets me move the caliper without loosing my...
  10. Walnut and Maple box

    Walnut and Maple dresser valet I made as a Christmas present. The is the second box I've made, so it has a few flaws. The small feet are walnut, the box is maple, the splines are walnut, the lid is walnut and maple, the handle is a small piece of walnut I picked up off the floor. The spline jig...
  11. Shop helpers

    I'm using up some scraps and making useful items. The first is a sled for resawing log slabs. I hand planed a log half, then ran it through the planer to get the faces parallel. Double sided tape holds it to the sled. I'm happy. The next sled is for bandsawing round pieces. I like them held...

  15. 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...
  16. Wood Magazine Grinder stand

    As part of cleaning and organizing my shop I built a stand for my bench grinder. I used the plans from the May 2011 issue of Wood magazine as a starting point. I altered the design a little by moving the center support back and added a couple shelves. The top is a little bigger than the plans. I...
  17. Moxon Vise

    I finished my Moxon vise. I chose to make it with moving rods as I think the stationary rods would be in the way. Also, with moving rods the open capacity can be greater for drawers and the like. The wood is ash and red oak I had left from other projects. I used four one inch brass bushings and...

  18. Woodsmith Router Mortising Jig

    I decided that I needed a mortise jig before I started my next piece of furniture. This should make mortising quick and clean. I took the plans from Woodsmith #147. First picture was before I installed the T-track. Photo 2 shows the 4 adjustment blocks that you use to size the mortises. Photo...
