  1. MODIFYING PADDLE SWITCH for NEW UNISAW STARTER SWITCH •

    May 13, 2017 Disclaimer: This is not an approved replacement and just what I did. ------------ Sooner or later we all have to face this problem … our old UNISAW starter switch will give up the ghost and FAIL. You press the GREEN button and nothing happens. Mine has been failing off and on but...
  2. Safety Equipment Storage

    I made this so I could have 1 place to put my safety equip (glasses. ear muffs, ear plugs etc. It is made of scrap wood for the frame and this plexe-glass or lexan . The front glass is cut short so I can remove an item from the opening at the bottom. The top is open so I can just drop the glsses...
  3. Poor Mans Air Circulation System

    Ok stop laughing….ha-ha. I found this in one of my SHopNoyes mags and knew right away it wa for me. It is simple, inexpensive.. not sure how well it works. I needed something but can't afford one with a blower fan etc like I see in workshop and mags. It is better than nothing and maybe it will...
  4. Table Saw Knee Switch

    The magnetic on/off switch that came on my table saw is so small that it is a safety hazzard to turn it off. The last thing I need while cutting a large sheet of plywood or whatever…..is to divert my attention from the blade to fumble around with the on/off switch…..oops! there goes a finger! I...
  5. Sheet Music Shelf

    I built this for my daughter-in-law to her specifications. She's a concert violinist who needed a simple shelf to store her sheet music. The limited space in their small apartment made it necessary for me to go vertical rather than horizontal as she had first wanted. I managed to hold to the...
  6. Bagel Slicing Guide

    Quick project for my sister's husband. Made from Maple, Walnut and a tiny piece of Cherry. All joints glued. Finished with mineral oil/bee's wax. Large enough for the "Deli Size" bagels. Design from an Internet search.
  7. TV Cabinet Widescreen

    This is my first post here on this site. I for years have been collecting tools and not doing projects. I lost my wife this past November and have been builidng projects, namely furniture ever since. This is a long overdue TV cabinet to accomodate a widescreen. Hope you enjoy. It was my...
  8. Small Parts Holding Clamps

    Sometimes I use a miniature Jorgensen type clamp to hold small parts. Sometimes they don't feel quite right for what I'm working with. I came up with these for the price of a T-nut, a little allthread, a bolt or screw, a couple washers, ad a nut and some scrap plywood. Details for making...
  9. Bamboo Zero Clearance Throat Plate for my New (to me) Unisaw

    I finally upgraded my saw to a Unisaw! It was long overdue and man-o-man is this thing a beast. I found it on CL about 15 miles from my house. It has very few hours on it, came will all the manuals, a mobile base, extension tables, and the Delta Tenoning jig. For $900 delivered! It's a 3hp 220...
  10. Form follows function ... My new Fun Bench

    I prefer to call this a Funbench vs Workbench since woodworking is such a great way to relax. I started by looking at other benches and using features and options I could use. It took awhile to design this for my needs. So, what if? ..... you need a bench that: Is inexpensive Is heavy duty...
  11. New Entertainment Center

    Well, it's finished! Earlier this year, we had to replace our TV. It only made sense to get a flat screen model to replace the old CRT type. Mimi didn't like the old TV/stereo center (last picture). It didn't match the new furniture,was too hard to dust, etc, etc. The old center had also gone...
  12. Grizzly 1023 Switch Relocate and Safety Stop

    About a year ago I purchased a used Grizzly 1023 tablesaw which had been poorly maintained. The previous owner had sawed mostly pine and must never have cleaned it. All the parts were caked hard with pitch and sawdust and the entire base was packed full of sawdust. I spent many hours cleaning...
  13. Cherry Hall Mirror

    Here's another mirror in my "journey in wood". After an oak and sapele mirror this one is cherry. I built it for my sister as a house warming gift. I'm working on a walnut one for my mother currently. The finish is a Minwax Cherrywood gel stain. This was my first time using a gel stain. It...
  14. Zero Clearance Inserts

    These aren't the first, nor do I think they will be the last. I want to share my experience nonetheless. I bought a 6 inch dado stack from Amazon a couple of months ago. Due to some unforseen family problems, I was unable to use it until a week or so ago. I wanted to make some zero clearance...
  15. Oyster Sloop

    This was a glued-lapstrake plans built 17' sloop designed by John Leather I built in 1994. The strakes are marine plywood (Okume) and the thwarts, coaming, risers, rails and sole are sassafras. The mast, boom and yard are spf from the lumberyard; and the tabernacle is SYP. This was the seventh...
  16. An Early Project Done 14 Years Ago

    After moving my 92 year old MIL to an old folks home with the possessions she wanted with her, she said to just take whatever we wanted that was left at her home. My wife and my BIL and his wife are at an age when we are more interested in getting rid of stuff than acquiring more, and our kids...

  17. Red Gum Euclayptus Finished 2 more pens

    Last night I posted the project of the first Red Gum Eucalyptus pen that I turned. I mentioned the problems with making pens from this wood. I started 3 pens and all three had cracks appear in the pen turnings. I finished one last night after making a few repairs. I repaired the other two...
  18. A Safe Material holding Clamp - Tablesaw, Bandsaw and more!

    You might want to add this one to your favorites so you don't forget it. This idea has been rolling around in my head for quite a while. (lot's of extra room in there) I wanted to make a tool. Something that would be useful to have atound the shop. This clamp can be used on either the table...
  19. Jointer Helpers

    I often need to joint shorter stock, so I came up with these two push blocks … one for face-jointing, the other for edge-jointing. These were made from scraps I had accumulated along with a couple of hardwood knobs I picked up when a big-box store down the road closed a couple of years ago.
