  1. Sliding Compound Miter Saw (SCMS) Station

    Sliding Compound Miter Saw (SCMS) Station An inexpensive but very functional SCMS station made from scrap wood and a give-away conference table. My SCMS station is not fine art furniture but it works as good. Its design was determent from what I had available in the shop. The table is a...

  3. Mud Room benches

    My son converted a small room between his garage and his kitchen into his Mud room. He asked me to also design 3 custom benches that fit into the mud room. Since they are painted white, I used lower cost pine to make the benches. I used 3/8" dowel construction for the bench end pieces, then...
  4. yet another SCMS DC hood

    I rearranged the shop and decided to upgrade my SCMS DC hood (from my old trash can solution). Design objectives were: 1. Easily removable, so the saw is still portable. Two 1/4-20 wing carriage bolts with wing nusts detach hood. 2. Light weight, so as to not make the fold up stand tippy. 3...
  5. Tool Cabinet

    Just finished my latest tool cabinet. I am fairly new to hand tools, and I set out to cut all of the joinery for this cabinet with hand tools. I found the cherry for the carcass to be very unforgiving when cutting through dovetails by hand, so I switched to box joints on the table saw for the...

  9. Table saw sled

    I just finished this table saw sled. I thought the stop was a good addition. I got the plans from the internet. I made a few changes in the size.
  10. Bill pay/mail station

    Wife dropped off a couple of cabinets she found at a flea market and requested that they get sanded and painted and a top so she can redo the mail/bill station at the house. Printer cart, shelving, and cubbies to come Cherry with Sycamore accents
  11. SCMS stand w/ folding wings and fence

    You may have seen this style SCMS stand b4…. the nexus for the plan comes from 2010 issue of FWW. I altered the design in a couple ways, as I thought the Kreg stop system was way overpriced and I wanted to use the base for storage of cut-offs. I also re-sized the box for better plywood...
  12. Miter Saw Station

    Long story shortened a little, I recently lost the use of my neighbor's Bosch SCMS. He kept it in my shop for 3 years before he ended up taking it back for a project and as I figured it has found it's permanent home in his basement. I missed that saw!! So I bought a new Jet SCMS and I'd been...
  13. Workshop Odyssey

    Finally I did found a space good enough for my needs and settled down to set-up my small workshop. The total space is 70m2 or about 750ft2. So I set it up keeping the cost at the minimum and used allot of wood pieces I found here and there. Anyway I am not the type of woodworker who likes fine...
  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I'm wondering how many LJs have ever been on "Easy Street"? I have been on it a few times and could be again but I'd have to go to Port Angles, WA to get there. How many more "Easy Streets" are there in towns and cities scattered around the world? Goggle doesn't seem to know, so I doubt...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am thinking of buying a miter saw and my options are: 1. Hitachi C10FCH2 with laser from Bigskytools at $99 (plus $12 shipping) reconditioned (grade A). Brand new at Lowes is $169 2. Craftsman...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am planning to purchase a 10 inch sliding compound miter saw, and I think I have narrowed it down to the Dewalt 717, Bosch CM10GD, and Makita LS1016 (in no particular order). This is for home use woodworking, and accuracy is the most important factor. The Kapex is nice but over twice my...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi all, I've recently modified my router table to collect dust better when grooving, and I've made a new shroud to improve the DX on my SCMS. Neither is perfect, but both are a jolly sight better than nothing! Enjoy Steve
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've been researching different sliding compound miter saws, and basically narrowed it down to the Bosch 4310 (10") or 5312 (12"). The biggest thing (capacity wise) I want it for is making large cross cuts of rough and finished lumber, and since the cross cutting capacity is basically the same...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    You spend almost $700 for a saw, you expect it to be pretty much perfect, right? I posted earlier today about the bevel stop at 0° being off. I'm fine with fine tuning the saw when possible, but for things that are ridiculous, if not impossible, like flattening a table, I expect them to be dead...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am re-arranging my two-car garage workshop to clear enough space to actually park two cars. This means moving my sliding compound miter saw against a wall. To that end, I'm planning to buy a Bosch GCM12SD Dual Bevel Glide (...
