  1. Hold Down Knobs

    I like wood, as most of us do, and have an opposition to things made from plastic. So I decided to make my own handle knobs. I turned six knobs on the lathe for edge holding parts on the Torque table top. After turning, I drilled out a shallow hole sized to a 1" washer, then drilled a hole the...
  2. Clothes valet

    My wife wanted something that matched our dressers in our bedroom to hang her robes on. So she got the glass knobs, pine oval blank, and I routed it, then stained it with a mahogany color stain and added the knobs. I think it came out alright. The main thing is that my wife is happy and if she's...

  4. Going green - make your own jig and fixture knobs / wing nuts

    One can easily buy plastic knobs for jigs & fixtures for a dollar or two a piece. Or, for a more classy touch, one can easily make their own, using designs no commercial versions can match. I made a few wing nuts (in under an hour) - just bandsaw / scrollsaw some scraps, drill holes for the...
  5. My Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench

    It was very interesting to see Drew's Ultimate Tablesaw Cabinet posted a few days ago. Apparently he and I were working on similar projects over the holiday break. Here's what I call my Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench. It's based on the Paulk design and incorporates many ideas I picked from...
  6. Star Knob Jig

    This jig was inspired by one shown in a YouTube video by Christofix - DIY Projects The video shows the layout of the template and Christofix's construction of the jig. My version uses a 2-1/2" hole saw, and some scrap plywood that otherwise would have gone in the burn pit. Christofix built the...
  7. Hold Down Clamp - Knobs

    Lisa - DustBunny posted some hold down clamp knobs that she made for her Torque machine. I noted that these would be a great addition to hold down knobs. I searched around the shop for some larger pieces that might have started out as Pen Blanks. They were Misc species and size. I chucked...
  8. Shopmade Jig Star Knobs

    Always in need for jig knobs, I found this clever way to make my own using scraps, carriage bolts, T-nuts and two sizes of hole saw. With these 2'' in diameter, don't you think my jigs will look store bought? Find all construction details and photos on this page of my blog. Best, Serge...
  9. Drawer & Box Assembly Jig

    Made out from plywood scraps, this is my drawer and box assembly jig. Both sides of a drawer or a box tightly held vertically, from now on it will be easy to secure the third piece. No fussing, no wandering, no shifting. And storage will be easy as well (think vertical). A handy jig ! All...
  10. Shop Made Knobs

    I didn't feel like spending the crazy money they want for something you could make in the shop w/scraps basically, and a bit of hardware….. very affordable, and fun to build. I think if you can imagine it, you can make it
  11. Turned Drawer Pulls and Cabinet Door Knobs

    I decided to turn some drawer pulls and cabinet door knobs many months ago and I finally made some today. They were really fun to make and relatively easy. I'm planning to write a blog about the process as others may find it useful. I generslly followed the process for makiing end-grain knobs...
  12. A New Handle (Miter Gauge Repair)

    Well, one of those cheap plastic handles broke off of the (can you believe it) 1/4" stud. Seriously? They really expect 1/4" of stud to hold in a piece of plastic? This is for the miter gauge on a Powermatic bandsaw. I quickly glued some Walnut and Ash together for a two tone fix. Just enough...
  13. Oak and Walnut Drill Press Table

    This is my first project on LJs and I have to give many thanks to all who have posted their DP tables for me to "borrow" ideas from. I lurked as a guest for weeks while working on the design for this table and got many great ideas so thanks! This design wasn't based on any one in particular...
  14. Bombe Box

    This is a box I made for my sister a couple of years ago. Red oak and walnut. I started the curve on the side boards with the table saw, then finished up by handplane. Finish is waterbased poly. I can't for the life of me remember whether I put BLO on first. Thanks for having a look, Kerry
  15. Tapering and Jointing Jig

    Since the expiry date of my old tapering jig has exceeded, I decided to fabricate this new model that also allows to joint at the table saw or at the router table. The parallel base is a 9" X 28" piece of 5/8" MDF on which I laid out parallel lines for five sets of 3-1/2" long 1/4" carriage...

  18. Short White Water Shaker Bench

    Here's another piece of "furniture of necessity" I've made for my house. My fiance has ordered me time and time again not to walk around the house with my work boots on. The trouble is, I really like to have a place to sit down to take my boots off after work or to put them on in the morning...
  19. Walnut and maple dresser

    Finished up this custom designed solid walnut and maple dresser. Half blind dovetails join the case sides, the drawers have through dovetails at the front and rear and sliding dovetails for both the front and rear drawer stretcher to case joinery. It stands about 54" tall, 36" wide and 21" deep...
  20. Overarm Blade Guard - Long Awaited

    Woohoo! Finally took the time to do this one. I've been working without a guard for the last year or so and have known that I really should change that the whole time. The Grizzly 1023S factory guard takes two wrenches to remove. That lead to it not being put back on. Anyways, I borrowed...
