  1. Phenolic Router lift extension on the cheap ($165 total)

    New router lift table saw extension done on the cheap $165 total I got my bonus in January so I knew I was getting a tool for my self, money is too tight to buy anything real big But I saw the Jessem Rout-R lift II and decided that 120+ shipping was too good to pass up. I ordered it without...
  2. Custom XL Sliding Barn Door

    Here's a massive sliding barn door I recently made for a customer. This thing weighs about 400-500 lbs. and is made of steel, birch plywood, and grey hemlock siding from our lot. It measures 64" wide and 105" tall and slides over into a recess the customer had built into the room. We sprayed the...
  3. Sliding 45 Deg Sled

    I was bringing back to life a Grizzly table saw that I've had buried for about 9 years It was missing everything (wings, fence, blade, washer, nut, plate, dust collector door) I got a fence at a going out of business Woodworkers Warehouse about 8 years ago, some wings at a Grizzly Tent sale.

  4. A Turned Cube (and some Scraps)

    Its hip to be a square. Well, its actually a cube. A square would look more like this. Most turners are aware that a cube can be turned on the lathe. I'm speculating here, but I'll bet this was probably initiated with the metalworkers. I've always wanted to try one for myself. I had half of a...
  5. Router Table

    The Table Base I wanted an inexpensive router table so I decided to make one. This was my first mortise and tenon attempt, so I made a few rookie mistakes, but not anything that couldn't be fixed. The table went together very easily and glued up nice and square. I used construction pine and...

  7. portable task lighting

    I needed additional lighting for some tasks I have to perform in the shop. Rather then buy lamps and spotlights I decided to have mine portable. In my shop I have cleats around on the walls so I can move cabinets and accessories around without a lot of hassle. The portable lights hang from...
  8. Reclaimed Grey Barn Siding Sliding Door

    Here's a nice looking grey siding covered sliding barn door we did. This wood came from Iowa. This cool door covers the entry to a pantry and uses our 8″ v groove wheel hardware. I love this oversized hardware. It glides so smooth. I used the new style black phenolic door guide I recently...
  9. Mushroom Wood and Red/Grey Hemlock Siding Sliding Barn Door

    The sliding doors I make allow me to put multiple types of wood surfaces on each side of the door so it can blend with whatever motif the customer has in the room(s). On one side of this door is our reclaimed mushroom wood siding that we surfaced and lacquered. The other side is reclaimed...
  10. Calico Sliding Barn Door

    This door was featured in North Vally Magazine and East Valley Magazine as well as Scottsdale.org. It has reclaimed barn wood material from 3 different states. It's a huge door! Weighs a lot. It has a flat lacquer finish and the steel has a special rusty patina and lacquer on it. Custom...

    This was and experiment using phenolic material that I got from work. It's used to make engraved tags for equipment, junction boxes, etc. I don't know what kind of wood it is. Any help identifying would be appreciated. Thanks for looking!

  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Heyo folks, I have a Triton 2 1/4 HP router and I've decided to build a table for it. I'm going with the design out of FWW March/April 04. It's a fairly simple design that I plan on using until I decide on a more permanent solution. So I see all sorts of inserts, phenolic, polycarbonate...
  15. Wood & Lumber
    This is my first piece of this. I sure would like to know if there are any nuances of this material before I go ripping and routing it. Does it rip well ? Does it chip out badly ? How does it route ? Does it drill easily ? Etcetera. Please share your experience. Thanks.
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hope this is the correct forum for this question. Trying to attach Dust Right "Dust Bucket" (from Rockler) to bottom of Rockler Pro Phenolic router table (Rockler says it's "solid phenolic"). Instructions say to use #10 or #12 screws, but I broke 1 of each size, and cracked the phenolic (not too...
  17. Blogs
    Design ideas, need some feedback OK, so yeah - another blog about a router table, but since I'm going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I've had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2...

    Making some blanks I started trying to make some zero clearance inserts for my saw so I can start cutting up the wood for the blanket chest I am working on. I have never done this before so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I looked around at premade inserts and could not find one...

    I was standing there minding my own business…........................................when I was attacked by my tablesaw. At least that is how it felt. My pride took a big hit as well as, my chest/abdominal area, just below diaphragm. I was helping my stepdaughter put the finishing touches on a...
