  2. Shop Safety -- Magnetic Feather Boards

    I picked up a couple of feather boards ($2 each) at a weekend Estate Sale, among several other tool finds. Time to retire an old feather board that has served me well all these years - with a zero kickback record. To install the Mag-Jig® Magnetic Clamps, I needed to elongate the holes a little...
  3. Sacrificial cutting platform

    Even with outfeed, or side tables on the table saw, for myself large sheet goods are too unwieldy to safely cut and stay against the fence. To manage cutting sheet goods more safely we made a sacrificial platform table. Utilizing a straight edge, clamps, and a Porta Cable circular saw. This...

  5. SAFETY STICK •

    Mar 1, 2022 There have been several times in the last year that Iʻve said to myself that I need a safer way to hold this piece of wood. Here is a tool that Iʻve been wanting to make ever since I saw this of the $10 Million Dollar Stick. I know that I could purchase one for just under $15.00...
  6. Custom Wet Bar

    This is a wet bar I did for a customer that gutted one of his bathrooms in a remodel. The drain and water lines were already there! Probably one of the most difficult cabinet jobs I've done. Just because of all the 45 degree angles. All in all it turned out to be my best work to date. Two...
  7. Shaving Horse

    A friend of mine is starting to make rustic furniture and using period tools. Thought he might like to have one of these.
  8. Spacesaver/toilet topper

    I painted this white, but I don't have a picture of the finished product. I was originally going to put some beadboard at the back and make some doors for the top two shelves, but I decided to just leave the shelves open. If I built another one, I'd leave the back off.
  9. ✮ PADDLE SAFETY SWITCH FOR DELTA UNISAW •

    April 7, 2015 UPDATE: Drawings added to end of post for those who have this switch on their Unisaw. Here is my original switch for my Unisaw. To increase the safety factor on my tablesaw, I decided to add a "paddle" safety switch to my Delta Unisaw. It's a relatively simple solution...
  10. Wow, that's some push block.

    This requires some explanation. Otherwise, it may just be seen as a violation of the lumberjocks' code. Many years ago (I think my children were in elementary school at the time), I found a big wooden plane at a flea market. I think I paid $5 or $10 for it, and even as a novice woodworker I...
  11. Table

    Simple Table I made using bandsaw to make the legs and simple trim on the top just 45 deg cut on table saw. Sliding drawer, this table has been in our kitchen for years. Most wood is pine, legs are poplar.
  12. Lumberjocks: Useful even in the bathroom

    So I have caught a bit of that "don't buy a new one, I can fix it bug." Stephanie decided to paint the bathroom. She took off all the hanging fixtures, including the toilet paper roll hanger and repainted them too. Unfortunately, she left them outside on a rock, and when I drove home in the...
  13. Farmhouse Style Sofa Table

    Since my wife and I recently bought our very first house we needed some furniture but were a little tight on the budget. Since our new house has a two and a half car garage I can finally have at least a small woodshop and figured he I'll see what I can build. Since this is my first actual inside...
  14. Spalted Maple Bandsaw 5-drawer Jewerly Box

    I had a piece of spalted maple that I was waiting for it to tell me what it wanted to turn it into. It finally told me that it wanted to be a bandsaw box (after I got my bandsaw). Since I was unable to make 90 degree turns with my 1/4" blade (I should have been using a 1/8" blade, but I hadn't...
  15. Shop Safety Can Be Fun •

    Dec 15, 2014 I finally decided to find some scrap in my scrap bin and make some Mudflap Girl Push Sticks like the one Steve posted here a while back. I made a total of 6 using plywood scraps. 2 out of 3/4 inch scraps 2 out of 1/2 inch scraps 2 out of 1/4 inch scraps Once I got a pattern that...

  16. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Could some one tell me how you calculate the # of CFM is needed based on the cubic feet of a wood shop?
  17. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    This looks, at first glance, to be a great idea. However, in my experience, leaving an extension cord coiled while running a power hungry tool is always a bad idea. The coiled cord acts like a choke causing voltage drop and excessive heat to build up in the cord. Rockler has a great rep for...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've decided to go ahead with Thien's design as opposed to the Dust deputy by Rockler. Thanks to all of you that helped with info and web sites. So…I went to Thien's site to find plans to build one of these. I watched a [very] long video sucking up sawdust. I then was directed to an even...

    Has anyone in the community coated their shop floor with a product called "RUST BULLET"? . . . or something else similar to this?
  20. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    Discussions about the SawStop table saw seem to surface on this site very often. Most of the time it's the "like it" vs. the "hate it"....... I don't think the later actually "hate" the saw, they just have their own reasons for not wanting to invest in the machine. And of course, the "like it"...
