  3. Loose Tenon Mortising Jig - Tested and Improved

    This is the Loose Tenon Mortising Jig I posted earlier. I did test it and made a few improvements.

  9. Lazy Susan Cheese board

    This project was so much fun since I learned a few new skills, like making a round cutting board, a homemade circle jig and how to install a swivel plate for a Lazy Susan. I used maple, cherry and walnut for the cutting board that I glued up in 2 parts so I could run them through my planer...
