  1. "THE" Router Sidekick

    Lately I made a new, longer and wider jig similar to the former ones I made a while ago (photo 1) so it would be quick and easy to mill slots, dadoes, grooves and rabbets everywhere without fussy adjustments and measurements, thanks to the 1" guide bushing. Trace where to mill, clamp the jig...
  2. Custom Jigsaw Puzzle

    Kids have so many toys these days, it's very hard for a grandpa to know what to get for a five-year-old's birthday. My solution is to make something for my grandchildren, and give them a little cash along with that so they can buy whatever toy they might want. This year the gift is a jigsaw...
  3. Tracing and Copying Tool

    When I saw the ad of this tool on Facebook I fell in love with it. With such tool you can trace or copy (replicate) any 4 sides polygon, any contour and any angle. That's handy and I had to make my own ! (think self-sufficient and DIY). One by one I made the counterbored slots at the router...
  4. Vise Clamp Rack

    Since I own and use several vise clamps I built this handy wall mounted rack to store my vise clamps from 3/4" thick plywood scraps. The dimensions are 15" X 4" X 4". The slots are 1/2" wide and 1-1/2" deep. As shown, you don't have to remove the O-bolts, thanks to the slots. They are quite...
  5. Tapered Sliding Dovetail Slot Jig

    If you know that driving a long sliding dovetail pin into a long sliding dovetail slot is difficult, you'll like my new jig. To fabricate my tapered sliding dovetail slot jig I used a 7mm HDF (High Density Fiberboard) laminated floor board because it is slick, durable and rigid. The final...
  6. Another small step along my journey

    Here is a maple bowl with slots in the Harvey Fein tradition, about 12 1/2" in did. Finished with walnut oil. Thanks for looking
  7. Another toy chest.

    I start out with 2" x 4"'s and surface plane them all to the same thickness. Then I cut them into 4 pieces (approx. 1.375" x .75") on the table saw, cut to the dimensions and glue sides, offsetting the boards by about 1/2" for "fingers joints". Since all the boards should be the same height...
  8. Router Trammel : Simple, cheap, functional, quick and fun to make

    If you don't have a trammel to cut circles or arches with your router, from now on you won't have excuses anymore ! Are required : some kind of rod the diameter to fit your router (arrow), a set screw, a bolt, a nut and a hardwood block. Drill a down size diameter through hole in the hardwood...
  9. Shop-Made Wide Adjustable Featherboard

    I want to share with you how I made this wide adjustable featherboard from a 9'' by 12'' pine scrap. As shown, I cut one end at 30° at the table saw using the miter gauge then I drew a parallel line two inches from this cut. I use a plunge router and a 1/4'' straight bit to mill the slots, well...
  10. Woodworking Skill Share
    ok so I'm making a knife block out of a solid log. i don't want to cut the log and use a router to make the knife slots like a normal knife block, so i was wondering if there was a way to make the slots for the knives without cutting the log into pieces and gluing it back together. i want to...

    I made a couple of full-extension drawers for my SUV, but didn't slot the sides for dividers (probably going to use 1/4 mdf for the dividers). Does anyone know a way to cut 1/4" slots into drawer sides that are already glued & screwed? If I have to I can slot them maybe halfway down with a...

    Hi, all - I want to cut some slots in the sliding lids of cigar boxes. The wood is soft (probably cedar) and less than 1/4" thick. What would you use for cutting nice, clean slots in it? The slots will need to be about 1" by 3" or so. Thanks.

    I am wanting a drill press base, column and rack and pinion work table assembly. I have an old favorite Boyce-Crane drill press that my Dad bought before I was born that I want to take off the bench post and make a floor model out of it. The column needs to be about 2 3/4 inches in diameter...
