  1. Miter Gauge Upgrade, Now With 200% More Aluminum!

    I just finished making some improvements to my Unisaw's miter gauge. I added a 1"x2" aluminum extrusion to give me a longer reference surface and added a flip stop to ride in the top t-slot out of some aluminum plate and scraps of maple. I got the idea after watching on of Allan Little's (the...
  2. Miter Saw Stand

    This miter saw stand is based off one Norm built. I built this about twelve years ago while preparing to build our second house (I did all trim work). Still have and use it today, but after a move to a new house, I've found its too large for my shop space.
  3. Shop Built Miter Gauge Fence with Flip-Stop

    Really liked Blakes idea. Used Picture hanging T-Slot bit to cut slots for stop and fence. Added Screw for micro adjusting. Looks like it works good. Thanks Ken
  4. Shop-made Band Saw Table & Rip Fence (or save more than $100)

    I acquired this band saw in 1975 and believe it or not it didn't feature a rip fence neither a groove for a miter gauge. I finally made my own and I'm here to share the upgrade. I hope it could inspire one who purchased the same model, decades ago ! (or another naked model) Look for all...
  5. Table Saw Jig Using Fence & Miter Gauge at same time

    Table Saw Jig-For using the Fence and Miter Gauge at the same time for Safety cutting pieces with length longer than width. Piece #1 is exactly 1" thick so it is easy to add the 1" to your cutting dimension. Start by planning piece #1 down to exactly 1" thick, then plane piece #2 to 1/2" thick...
  6. Additional Shop Storage

    Some time spent in the shop this week helped me to straighten up a bit more. The first 3 pics are of my lathe work area or formally lack there of, the lathe bench was just piled with stuff. The lumber rack below the cabinet was made several months ago and also became very cluttered. The new...
  7. Osborne EB-3 Miter Guide Holder

    While the miter guide that comes with most quality contractor or cabinet table saws is adequate, most of us (sooner or later) upgrade and/or add to our tool collection a number of after-market miter guides. The Osborne EB-3, Accu-Miter, Jess-Em, Kreg and Incra are just a few. Each seem have...
  8. Miter Gauge Upgrade

    Since I've been using my miter gauge a lot more lately, I decided to get something nicer to use and buff it up a bit. The miter gauge I grabbed is the Incra V27. I'm disappointed with it but Incra's fixing the issue. There were two problems with it. First, the fence is nowhere near square to...
  9. Table Top Inverted Jig Saw

    Table Top Inverted Jig Saw So my daughter owns a small gift shop creating small wooden items for weddings, christening and mainly gifts for the kids and almost everything is hand grafted. From time to time she ask my help cutting wood for her, but I'm in a bit of a distance and is not always...

  11. Big Upgrade for a little Miter Gauge

    I used this weekend to add a much needed upgrade to my miter gauge that came with my Shipmaster contractor saw, it was very small, it fit loosely in saws miter slots and the bar was barely long enough to cut even small crosscuts. I finally decided it was the time to address these issues and...
  12. One for the “Other Half”

    I finished this a few years ago; soon after we bought our house. My wife and I grew up in the "Pennsylvania Dutch" area of Pennsylvania, and because of this fact my wife has her own hobby: collecting quilts. When we bought our house she commented that she wanted her quilts hung on the wall in...
  13. Return To Sender or Pau Pow

    Here is a simple bible box I made for a friend from work. He was a consultant from Brazil. We spent a lot of time working together during the project we worked on and we exchanged a lot of information about our respective countries. I asked him about wood since his country is one huge rain...
  14. Tablesaw Mods

    So I bought this Craftsman contractor saw about 2 yrs ago now (model #21805) and it has been one heck of a little saw for me. I can't afford much else and so far hasn't let me down. I did notice though that Craftsman decided that they were going to be special and make the miter gauge slots...
  15. Horse and Carriage

    This Horse and Carriage was made at the request of my granddaughter and scaled to fit her Barbie Dolls . They are made of 1/4" birch plywood and pine and spray painted. I later added some gold decorations applied with a paint pen.

  17. Chess Board from Purpleheart & Wenge, Red Gum & Hackberry

    This chess board is 17" square. Each square is just over 2" and is made using 8 triangles. Two types of wood are in each square. Four kinds of wood are on the chess board. The dark square has "Purpleheart" from Central or South America, and "Wenge" from West Africa. The light square has...
  18. 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...
  19. MDF Miter Gauge extension

    I made an extension to my miter gauge in MDF, I'm uneasy about using aluminum T-tracks in the miter gauge because I don't want to accidentally set off my sawstop. So I decided to get a freud t-slot cutter router bit it worked pretty well on the router bit, though I'd like to get one that...
  20. Miter gauge extension with stop block

    Here is an accessory that I made to improve my miter gauge. It helps considerably to hold the work secure when crosscutting. This little improvement has helped me, and so I thought that posting it might be useful to others. I used a piece of MDF and cut slots for my stop block. On the back...
