  1. Display case for Trophy Belt

    I was asked to find a way to display one of those huge trophy belts, like wrestlers get. I was totally free to make all design choices, so I stuck a nail in the wall, hung it, and said "There ya go!" Not really. I decided to use my new lock-miter bit and make a glass-front shadowbox. The case...
  2. Bee Hive (10 Frame Langstroth)

    We decided to try beekeeping and I couldn't bring myself to buy something I could make myself. I have sketchup files and cut list if anyone would like them - pm me. Made 2 deep hive bodies and 20 frames from one 8' and one 6' 1×12, one 8' 2×6 and some scrap 2×4. Instead of the typical box or...
  3. Birgitta Clock

    This is a great clock for the mini pendulum. I have made it out of Aspen, and it didn't sell. So, I put Cherry spray-stain on it, and it went right away. Funny, sometimes, how the darker wood goes better than the lighter.

    Design and Milling the Wood My daughter Jenny found a nightstand she liked on the web. She asked me if I could build one like it for her. Of course, I said yes. Then I began looking closer at its design. The challenge was with two design elements: (1) the lock miter joints for the case, and...

    Disregarding using a lock miter router bit, does anyone have a technique for making this joint? I would like to make some 3" square legs using 3/4" thick material. I have not had much luck ripping 45 degrees and then trying to get the angles to stay in place during glue up. Would splines work in...

    Lock Miter Router Bit Setup There was some discussion about lock miter bits on Rick M's Deals thread. I didn't want to muck up his thread with off-topic conversation, so I am tossing this out there for anyone who is not certain about setting up lock miter bits. First, a diagram (the numbers...

    Do any of you have experience using a Lock Miter router bit? I have one and tried it the other day; that was a very scary bit. I found it very hard to control the pieces of wood safely. I think it could be a very useful addition to my arsenal if used properly; but how ?

Do I go with a new lock miter router bit and speed control for the Makita router or purchase a lock miter...
