  3. Soap Curing Rack

    This past weekend's project was to make a soap curing rack for my wife's soap making hobby. The top and bottom shelves are glued in and hold the structure together, but the other four are removable to allow access and reconfiguration as required. The shelves are made from pegboard to help...
  4. Soap Mold Box with BuIt-in Slicing Jig

    This was the first soap making project I came up with for my wife. She had the silicone loaf mold, but needed a way to keep the sides in shape while the soap set up. After measuring for the mold, I decided to add a slicing jig and a removable wall to allow sliding the loaf to the end and...

  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm finely to the point, where I am sick and tired of having to resquare my table to the blade and not knowing if my cuts are truely 45s. The marker on the turn table is about a 1/6" or better off from the factory mark of 0 according to my square. My dad is wanting to build bird houses and I'm...
