  5. Planer Cart made from scraps

    Here is a stand / mobile cabinet that I made for my Delta 560 planer. I got a pocket hole jig from Harbor Freight and tested it out by making a cabinet carcass out of some birch ply I had left over from another project. Never used the super popular Kreg Jig, so can't compare it, but the HF one...
  6. Shop Made Pocket Hole Jig

    Wanting to try out pocket hole joinery, I bought a pocket hole jig of ebay for $12 and a $8 stepped drillbit from Sears. The toggle clamp is also a $8 clamp of ebay. Soon to find that clamping this jig to the workpiece every time was timeconsuming. So I made this jig based on the original Kreg...

  9. Base for a Kreg Pocket-Hole Jig

    This base for my Kreg Pocket Hole Jig was inspired by (and pretty much copies) the neat design posted on Lumberjocks by cFurnitureGuy, which can be seen here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/29820 except I didn't get around to making the nifty storage compartment that he included. Instead I...
  10. My First Picture Frame

    Being new to woodworking, everything takes me a loooooong time. This frame was certainly no exception. I spent probably 40+hours on it, from designing it, to getting materials, to replanning, reworking, working, and finishing. I learned quite a few things along the way though, including what did...

    Hello. I have been doing a lot of turning lately. I came up with a homemade jig for the Tormek-style water wheel that does what the pricey accessory will do!
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am looking into different joinery options in an attempt to improve the efficiency of my shop. I have used the Leigh mortising jig, but it is a little one dimensional for the price. Has anyone used the Woodrat? It looks to be able to do just about everything. I am suspicious.
  14. Jigs & Fixtures

Anyhow… Ive learned a whole lot along the journey. Heres my benchtop. Based on my limited tools/small shop, i ended up laminating...
