  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. 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...

  5. 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...
  6. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Back to that shop vacuum and cyclone thing: I mentioned, a while back, I found most solutions for mounting vacuums and cyclones, like the Dust Deputy, cumbersome in appearance and they appeared less efficient than they could be. Every package I see either places the vacuum on the bottom and...

    Making Unique, Light Catching Laminated Wood, Plastic and Copper Ornamental Turnings This is a blurb I wrote for making ornaments using wood, plastics and copper. The original can be seen at on the instructables web site at...
