  1. General Woodworking Discussions
    Hi LJ, I was just using my Sawstop PCS 3HP to cut on some tenons on some cherry using a dado blade. I had made over a dozen cuts by this point with the current dado blade/brake setup when all of a sudden heard a loud bang. I jumped. Them realized the brake had fired. Honestly, cannot figure out...
  2. Sawstop mobile base

    I know it is not made of wood but there is a small piece of purple heart underneath the saw that is not visible in the pictures. Trust me, it is there.. :) I blogged about the build here,http://lumberjocks.com/pneufab/blog/series/6221 Not a whole lot of reading, but lots of pics.. I'll leave...
  3. Bench & Shoe Rack

    This is a simple piece that I made for use by our entry door. The purpose is to clear up the clutter and give a place to sit while putting on or taking off shoes. The wood is white ash. The finish is natural Danish Oil and polyurethane, to protect against water, mud, snow and such. This...
  4. Sawstop dado throat plate with replaceable insert

    When I purchased my saw, I purchased the dado cartridge and Sawstop throat plate. Honestly, I haven't even used it yet since I didn't want to use the throat plate for one size dado and then have to purchase another the next time I needed a dado (I like the idea of zero clearance for dadoes :) )...
  5. Mother's Day Cutting Board

    I made this face grain cutting board for my mom. It's made with stripes of maple, Padauk and walnut. For the edge profile I did a chamfer. Finished with a few coats of Howard's Butcher block conditioner.
  6. Winding Sticks Mania

    Hardwood winding sticks-such as these: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/319177-may occasionally need "tuning" because of seasonal changes. Winding strips made of manufactured materials, e.g., MDF and hardboard avoid that concern and are therefore maintenance free. These MDF/HB winding sticks...
  7. Saw Stop cabinet under extension Table.

    When I sold my old Craftsman saw#, I lost the really great base with storage and drawers. I really have missed not having my saw blades and dado set at my right hand. I also have always want a easier way to access my tools that I use on the saw all the time, without having to have them sit on...
  8. Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

    Here's my completed SawStop and Router Cabinet. I've added foldaway outfeed and infeed tables for safety and versatility. This is based on an amazing similar table by Tedth66, who graciously provided me continual assistance as I built the project. This is a modification of his design, adding a...
  9. Majestic Pen, First Try, and a return to turning.

    Greetings all; Well I have been turning since I was a kid. My father had an old Beaver Tools lathe. I was self taught, which means I had a lot of bad habits, and really did not get good results with my modest turnings. For years, I never sharpened a single tool. I simply didn't know as a...
  10. Table saw fence storage (for when not in use)

    My old Delta contractor saw had a nice "holster" of sorts for the fence when not in use, and it was super convenient. I use a crosscut sled a lot so I'm constantly juggling my large-ish sled and fence between cuts, however my new cabinet saw didn't have a place to put the fence when not in use...
  11. Folding outfeed table for cabinet saw

    My goals with my outfeed table were to: (1) - Support the center of gravity of a full sheet of plywood behind the blade, i.e. the plywood won't tip backward once it clears the blade. (2) - Have static / stationary support behind the saw for everyday use, including miter tracks so I can use a...
  12. Workbench

    This is a workbench I recently completed. It was sized to be 1/16" shorter than my table saw so that I could use it as an extension or outfeed table. Bonus: when I don't need the saw, I the two tables can stay together for an extra-wide working surface.
  13. Cherry and Walnut Router Table Wing

    After almost three years of having it in a box under my table saw, I finally installed a cast iron General router table wing on my SawStop table saw. It was not an exact fit and I had to make some serious modifications. Because of the difference in wing sizes, I decided to install a cherry and...
  14. Drawers Under The Table Saw Extension

    The extension wing on my table saw was always cluttered with "stuff" that I use with the saw; ear and eye protection, featherboards, push sticks, Gripper, Mag-switch stop blocks, etc. When I adjusted the fence I usually had to "push" these things aside and hope that nothing was pushed off the...
  15. Frankenstein Feathered Hard Fishing Lure

    Time to kill. I thought about making a hard bait that incorporated feathers into the body. It was a strange assembly but in the end I came out with something. The next one will be better. I don't know if anyone else does this. The thing is made out of white pine, finished with feathers, an...
  16. 110 Year old Doug Fir Porch Swing

    This wood is from a 110 year old church that a company is remodeling. I thought id make something cool and put the wood to use. Took me three days to build from scratch. It just has 1 clearcoat on it.
  17. Its a pirate life for me..

  18. Drive in speaker

    Ok, I'm done with bluetooth speakers, at least until next time. This thought popped into my head and it came together fairly quick. I did have to make a jig to cut the slots for the grill. Box joint /dado jig. The first dado is cut against the back fence, the rest is just like cutting box...
  19. Morris Chair- Retirement Gift

    About five years ago my mother retired from a career she had spent most of my lifetime dedicating herself to. As a retirement gift, her colleagues gave her a very nice rocking chair. I thought this was an elegant retirement gift, way better than a watch that the the newly retired no longer...

    SawStop Job Site saw Zero Clearance Insert To make the insert with a jig look at this one. https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/422178 When I purchased my SawStop Job Site saw, I did it because of a small workshop in my basement and the ability to move it outdoors thru a basement walkout if...
