  2. French Cleat Measurement Tool Storage

    A few years ago, I installed a pair of French cleat rails in our garage. At the time, I had grand plans to build all sorts of handy little storage racks and the like. Aside from some clamp racks and a crosscut sled holder, I never built any of those things. Now that I can't easily go out and buy...

    from glenn to glenn….......damn Im getting carried away. Anywho these are the other kinda pipe. The first two I carved a generation ago and have enjoyed time and time again.

  8. Drill Press Vertical Boring Guide

    Here's the jig I designed to drill vertically at the drill press. As shown, it's all made out of scraps : 3/4" plywood and 2" thick wall PVC pipe. Sometimes it's so easy ! The PVC pipes are bolted together and then screwed to the upright, which has to be square to the base. Round and small...

  11. Safety in the Woodworking Shop

  12. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I want to build a pipe stand, as I do not care for the design of the one I bought many years ago. My question is; what tool would you use to create the scooped out area (where the bowl of the pipe sits) of a pipe stand? Alternately, how would you create this part of the project. I'm not a...
  13. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    Local head shop needs wooden pipes. Had some short purpleheart scraps under the bench. Now I have eight, eight purpleheart pipes (think of the Count from Sesame St.) I actually made eleven but two didn't survive drilling and shaping and I kept the runt for myself (too small to sell). M

    Finish for tobacco pipes I have a question I really need answering to. Is it possible to use salad bowl finish on a tobacco pipe? I want to keep the natural color of the wood I used, but just using wax isnt making it pop like I would want it to. I know there are other finishes I could use, but...
  16. Jigs & Fixtures
    Most of my boxes, I use a porter cable 4212 dovetail jig, (with through dovetails) but splines are handy for picture frames, and lots of other things.( Also I use box joints a lot too) The main problem with through dovetails, they take a long time to cut them all. I don't like changing router...
