  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So... I love having my radial arm saw. No, you won't convince me to get rid of it, I understand why people think they're dangerous, and all that noise. Not interested in a debate or anything about that, because I like having one, and won't give it up. My question is, what operation on a RAS...
  2. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey everybody! Look at what my cousin just gifted me. The RAS I first learned on in…. 1985? Needs tuned, but still seems to work just fine. What’s everyone think? I’m pretty stoked myself!
  3. Another Radial Arm Dust Collecter

    I know there are a 'few' radial arm dust collection solutions out here, but thought I would throw mine in mix. This is a copy of some others that have been posted with a few changes. I added some threaded inserts into the table so it could be securely fastened to the table, but also allow for...
  4. Texturing ( grooving box material)

    Made twelve boxes this afternoon . They are for tee boxes as in my previous project post . A good start on my Christmas presents . This is how I made them and you can see more in my blog . Thanks Kiefer
  5. Drill press table (vaccum mount DIY)

    Drillpress table Vaccum hose mounting So it was time to finish up the little drillpress table with a vac hose mount. Simply some scrap wood, and threaded rod, nothing facy, but it flips sideways and up and down. A full instruction tour can be found on my blog Drillpress table and much more...
  6. Miter Jig for Radial Arm Saw

    I'm pretty conscious of the fact that LOTS of people simply set up their RAS to do a perfect 90 degree crosscut, and then leave it there-building jigs for other types of cuts. There's some sound logic there. [David (Patron) is rather a genius at this sort of thing, by the way. HIS RAS table...
  7. RAS Cabinet and Torsion Box

    Well it is done. I got it all together today and I am very satisfied! Well I need to get the drawers made but that is another small project later down the road. Here is the completed Torsion Box. And here is the RAS Cabinet all put together. Above is a great shot of the new and improved...
  8. Pine Entertainment Center

    Last year I got tired of having my plasma sitting precariously on a stool and my A/V equipment stacked on the floor. This was my own design built from clear pine from Home Depot. I built this using only a circular saw, a router, a hand saw, and a few sanders, and I built it (unwisely) on the...
  9. Roller outfeed for radial arm saw

    This is about as far as you can get from fine woodworking, but… it works. About a year ago I acquired a broken treadmill with a DC motor that I wanted to use for a variable speed conversion for my Jet 15 mill. That project was a success, and I saved a few of the other parts from the treadmill...
  10. More Storage

    This is under my RAS, get rid of wasted space, made (3) seperate boxes with drawers, now it is useful space !!! Pine, Aspen, Walnut, Oak, & some Homemade Inlay. Check out the recycled Handels
  11. Picture Frames Made from Ipe Balusters

    I have a stack of ipe balusters that use to be on a deck that I upgraded. I decided to repurpose some of the balusters by making picture frames. This wood is very hard and eats up tools so I kept the profile simple. All the work was done using my radial arm saw. I also made a video that...
  12. Star on cross

    Final piece. The star: padouk, purpleheart, and black walnut. The background and cross: purpleheart, "african mohagany," and end-cut cherry. The border: "african mohagany" The entire structure is halfway-buried in epoxy. It's hard to tell in the pictures but what that does is gives an...
  13. A little box of LOVE

    A Steve Good design. Cut from 2" walnut, 1/2" and 1/4" red oak. Thanks for looking!
  14. Outdoor Benches

    These are a couple benches my sister asked me to build for her to match one she had. They are just simple little benches using treated wood from Menards. This is one of the few projects I had to use my hand plane to flatten the tops after joining together. That stuff was real wet yet and the...
  15. Radial Arm Saw Dust Collection

    Here is a link to a video. Not my design. Works REAL well. I added vent holes to the fence. Cleanest cross cutting setup I have ever had. Waaaaay better that my SCMS.
  16. Soap Dish

    Things I made on my summer vacation when I should have been installing insulation - part 2. Made Galoot style with nothing but a chisel and a hand saw from some Kwila decking offcuts which came in the wood pile I picked up last year.
  17. RAS Dust Collection

    I use my RAS… a lot. For the longest time I've had a wheelbarrow behind it where most of the sawdust lands and it is a lot of sawdust. Almost as much as my table saw. I've seen several LJ'ers and Youtubers with various RAS dust collection methods and decided that I like the fence port style...
  18. Dado Jig for Trim Router

    MY take on the exact-width Dado Jig I first saw at the Wood Whisperer (video here). I simplified it a little bit. As I mentioned in my review of the Ridgid Trim Router (here) the square base makes a nice "bushing" for the jig. Just set the base along the guide and move along. I use a simple...
  19. Portable Assembly Table for B&D Workmate

    This is my first post to Lumberjocks. I've been a longtime reader and looker, but just never bothered to register. Just thought I'd contribute something rather than just looking at all the amazing projects people post here. I have a list of projects coming up that will greatly benefit from...
  20. Ras dust collection

    this was inspired by lj's member wasatch that he posted on 5/20/19.when i saw this i had to make one myself,the shroud i had just wasn't getting enough dust due to the fence blocking the flow of dust,with this combination of fence and dust port it gets most and it actually sucks the wood against...
