  1. Candle Holder

    Was looking to make a simple project I could complete in a weekend and use up some leftovers. We had half dozen of the little candles sitting on the coffee table which would slide around when you bumped the table - most annoying. So I put together the candle holder from scraps of purpleheart...
  2. Compact drill station for Milwaukee M12

    I needed something to get my drills and drivers off my bench when not being used. I know there are a ton of these out there, but this one incorporates two features that I had not seen before. First, I cut the slots for the tools at 45 degree angles. The reason for this is that I have a really...
  3. Whoops!

    Another carving finally finished from RWR 3/18. This was in Gary Falin's class and from one of his roughouts. About 4 inches tall. Claude
  4. New Router Table with dust router, Incra, and JessEm Lift

    The fence is a 17" Incra with the wonder fence. Dust collection is with the Dust Router product which uses a flexible cup around the base of the collet. A T split sends a hose up to the fence, and another inside the case to the flexible cup surrounding the collet. With this combination, I run...
  5. Router Table (a lot like Norms.....)

    I literally just finished building this, and I am stoked! I'll try not to point out all my mistakes….. This project has been a few months in the building, I guess like everybody else there just doesn't seem to be enough time. The great thing about my router table is that most of the material...

  7. Red Oak Mobile Workbench

    This is my mobile workbench i made last year. Most of the materials came from scrap lumber from machine crates. It didn't cost an arm and a leg, just a little portion of my finger. Actually, 25% of my right thumb. I made the bench to my height. This means there is no bending over to work off of...
  8. Mission Oak Clock

    One of my earlier wood working projects. Made this one from a plan found in Wood magazine. About 15 years ago in my Milwaukee Bungalow basement I made three of these. Two were gifts and this one was mine. Tools used: My old craftsman Table saw, Ryobi 10 inch planer and a Harbor Frieght belt...

  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Thinking about moving to Milwaukee M18 tools from my Ryobi starter tools. I've been using Ryobi One Plus for my most used and Harbour Freight for the once in a while. Life is good in all areas , salary, time, debt and so forth so the budget is more forgiving if I want. This will be a several...

    Hoping someone can help shed some light on a mid-century Delta Milwaukee Rockwell 6" jointer I'm considering buying. NJ 228 stamped beneath the fence and RJ 255 underneath infeed table. Serial # is BE 1181. Any info about year of manufacture, how difficult it is to find replacement blades &...
  12. Hand Tools
    I am in tool handle making mode these days. I remembered I had found early last summer this scorp that was in need of a handle. So I cleaned off the rust and will make a handle for it this week end. How do I sharpen or fettle it? My guess is that you sharpen it like a knife, because there is...

    Hello Fellow Lumberjocks, I have a one year old Milwaukee Fuel 7-1/4" Circular Saw (2731-21) and I've experienced a second battery failure. Here's how it manifests itself: I occasionally use the tool to make a rough cuts, clean and store it away for a few weeks before I need it again. Before...

    Hey all, I have gotten it in my mind to try and build an enormous track saw - I deal with a lot of thick slabs being able to cut them with the precision and accuracy of any of the nice track saws would be fantastic. Obviously, this means a lot of cutting depth, enough to cut a 2.5" slab in one...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm thinking of purchasing one of these Milwaukee drivers. Any comments? I'm planning on using this instead of my Dewalt 14v or 18v cordless drills for all my screw driving needs. I like the idea of a chuck-less driver. They are also smaller and lighter.

    Recently i've been wondering- is Makita or Milwaukee a better brand overall? I personally am a biased Makita fan; but recently iv'e been wondering- is it really better, or not? I was reading some reviews about the two brands where the author, even though comparing the two, was obviously biased...

    I just bought a 5625. I want to use it to make some bow ties with this Rockler kit: Bow Tie Kit The hole in the router's sub base is 2.5 inches in diameter. Although on the Milwaukee site and in the manual it looks to be about 1.5 inches. The bushing in the Rockler kit is (I think) 1.5...
