  1. Some radius projects from a custom home I did in 2014

    Don't pay attention to the camera date, I didn't realize that it wasn't set to the current decade, LOL !! 1st pic is an entry foyer of a 10,000 sq ft house I completed in early December 2014 in Yakima, Washington. On the left side are some fairly challenging radius raised panel balcony wraps...
  2. Long Radius Template Jig

    THIS project is making a router jig and and using it to make a template for both a 15 foot and 28 foot radius. The template will be used to sand curved braces for guitars or ukes, and eventually to make radius dishes. The following is confusing, so I will make every effort to answer...
  3. Radius Dish - 28 Feet

    Finished first radius dish. Used the radius template from the last project to make the 28 foot radius guide rails for the router sled. 3/4" plywood rails were capped with 1/8" plywood to provide a smoother running surface for the sled. The attempt to make a dust collector attachment didn't...
  4. Aquarium Stand 92 Gallon Corner

    I really love this quarter-cylinder shaped aquarium for my living room but the stock stand was only 24 inches high. That's too low for being along a walking path. So I made one that's 34 inches high. More easily said than done! This aquarium has a 34 inch radius which makes the project big...
  5. Corner Radius Jig II: Now Adjustable

    Back when woodpecker made their one-time tool quick radius jigs, I knew this was something that would get a lot of use in my shop, so I made my own. There were two limitations I wanted to overcome with that design though; only two radii per jig could be used, and because of the required...
  6. Radius leg end tables

    I made these tables for my cousin, she needed tables and I needed to practice radius cuts. I made these out of old poplar from a pallet and 3/4 ply with bondo on the edge. I cut the legs with a scrollsaw and a router table and I cut the ply with a router and a home made circle cutting jig. And I...
  7. Oak Toy Box

    This is an oak toy box I made for my nephew. The face frame front back and sides are made from an oak pallet that I found floating down the Savannah river while fishing, and being a packet true to form I had to snatch it up and I'm glad I did. The radius lid I'd made from oak flooring scraps...
  8. Guitar Fingerboard Compound Taper Jig

    This is a jig I built out of scrap wood laying around the shop to put a compound fingerboard radius on a guitar build I am working on. The radius's are 10" at the nut and 12" at the 12th fret. The fingerboard is made out of ebony and the neck is mahogony.
  9. SMALL PARTS HOLD DOWN (EDIT )

    A week ago SERGE/Bricofleur posted a hold down that I thought was a handy device . Thanks for the inspiration Serge ! Well this is my version which is different in several ways . I used wooden springs with sandpaper pads to hold the material being cut on both sides of the saw blade and also...
  10. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have some objects that contain arcs that I would like to duplicate. Let me clarify, it is the arcs, the gentle, sweeping curves, that I would like to duplicate. My problem is that I don't know of a way to determine the radius of the existing arc other than make a tracing then break out a...

    Radius faces for boxes. This is a fairly easy method for getting to radius fase for boxes & other curved detail in home workshop. It is a simple compass for the router, which I made with a long thread & piece of plywood. I take a board of beech & fixed it on table. After that, I doing...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I just scored a free fake 3/4 hp (5 amps) 8" grinder that runs at 3450 rpm. I want to slow it down to 1750 rpm or lower to put a radius grind on chisels and plane irons prior to sharpening. It is quiet so I am assuming it is some sort of induction motor so I don't think I can slow it down with...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey all, I recently bought a used 14" Delta BS. I am happy with it but I have no experience with this type of saw. I currently have a 0.25" blade installed. How tight of a radius can I expect to cut with this blade. I used it to cut a 1.0" radius. It worked well but I did some back and forth...
